I don't like the EZ IV at all. Thought it was very buggy, and lacking in features. If you're looking for a cheap dedicated slot 2 cart, I would definitely go with the Elink. Good compatibility and now has RTS.

DSDatabase has a good review on it.

Really? I'm about to buy the EZ4 now. I'm wrestling between that and the ELink now. My main problem with the ELink is the amount of memory it has...

I've read everywhere that the EZ4 is pretty good. Does ELink have RTC as well?

I believe the Elink does not have RTC.

And yeah, the EZIV has good GBA compatibility, but it has too many other problems. This is just my opinion though(so don't let it prevent you from buying one, you might end up really liking it). Some people love the cart and some don't.

I'm picking me up an Elink just for the heck of it. The amount of memory doesn't really bother me. It's still enough to fit quite a few games on it.

I've decided to get the ELink. Thanks for the link, it really helped. I was quite deterred from the shipping cost from gameyeeeah so instead I just got an ELink from DX to make things easier

All your games are running at full speed neschn? I just a post in a thread where some dude some games weren't running at full. But everyone else I talked to said the cart has full speed compatibility.

If the Elink is for the GBA, then you've got two options: SNES Advance and Snezziboy. I'll copy and paste a post I made on another forum:
QUOTE said:
If you're in GBA mode only, you're limited to SNES Advance and Snezziboy. Neither has sound, and few games run at full speed, but if you're willing to accept some slowdown you can play some good games. Note that compatibility is not 100%, nor is it close.Â

SNES Advance:
1. Grab the tools from snesadvance.org
2. Grab the updated snesadvance.dat file from http://www.pocketheaven.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=3366 and overwrite the old one.
3. Open the builder and add your games, up to 32 MB in size.
4. Output the file and test the *.gba file in Visual Boy Advance to make sure it works.
5. Patch with the Supercard patcher and place on your card

Snezziboy:
1. Grab the emulator from http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.p...lease_id=439682
2. Delete the snezzi.dat file, download the snesadvance.dat file from http://www.pocketheaven.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=3366 and rename it to snezzi.dat
3. Open the new snezzi.dat file in Notepad and turn off Word Wrap
4. Go to http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/Snezzi_dat and manually copy over entries for games you know you want to play, overwriting the old entries.
5. Drag and drop your SNES game onto snezzi.exe to create a *.gba file. Launch it and test that it works.
6. Patch with the Supercard patcher and place it on your card.
7. In-game, press L+R+Start to open the config menu. Here, you set your controls and graphics settings.Â
8. While playing, press L+R+Select+Up to cycle through some known good graphics combinations. If none of them work, look at http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/Snezziboy_Compatibility_List to see if we've found a good combination for you.

Let me know if you need any more help, or if you want me to take a look at speedhacking a specific game.

EDIT: Obviously you can ignore the part about patching with the Supercard patcher.

My personal preference is Snezziboy since it scales the screen for you and gives you more options to make the game look better (plus you can change the graphical settings in-game, which you can't do in SNES Advance), but the choice is yours.
