Dont know if i put this in the right forum (since its about both NDS and GBA) but i'll give it a shot.

I'm still a newbie with NDS and flashing. I've got the hang of running DS roms on the DS now

but i still dont know how to flash my GBA-roms onto it. I havent tried flashing any roms yet since i'm looking for a compatibility list and instructions howto flash in the best way. Is there a similar compatibility list for GBA roms as there is with NDS (http://m3wiki.com/index.php?title=M3_NDS_roms)? I found this list on the M3 wiki but it doesnt have many games on it. I dont remember doing anything special when I used to flash GBA-roms onto my old EZ Flash II when i had a GBA SP a couple of years ago.

I'm using a M3 mini-SD (and passcard 3) on a NDS Lite.
Hoping to get some answers

oh and a little thing called google.

Nearly all roms should work on the M3 so there isn't a compatibility list for GBA games I don't think.

I think almost every GBA rom works on M3...

And for writing them, just write them to the SD card as a GBA game, in the M3 manager...

How do i know which settings i should use? When should i choose "hardware", "software" or "hardware + software"? When should i use "Real time save" and the IPS patcher?
Or do i only use the defaults?

here you go

Thank you, but thats wasnt what i needed...
This was for supercard and i'm using M3 mini SD and i've already found the M3 guide and it didnt help me much with my GBA rom problems. What i need is to know when to used hardware/software, realtime saves and IPS patching...

QUOTENo patching or conversion is need before playing. Just copy and play.
I found this on M3adapter.com. Is it true?
Common guys, there ought to be alot of you who's using your DS to play GBA games!
