    I have a GBA SP and want a gba only card with real time save support and very good compatibility. Is this a good card? Flash2advance ultra? And yes, i know about G6 Lite, but i want some alternatives. Only for a GBA SP.

    It's a fairly decent cart, yes. I have one, which I use for most of my GBA gaming. The official database hasn't been updated in a long time, but a fan update adds several hundred games. Just keep in mind that unlike the G6, it will have NOR flash, which is rather cumbersome to work with and also greatly limits your total capacity. A "1G" card actually only contains 128 megabytes of space.

    I haven't fooled with the real-time save feature too much, as it only works on commercial games, but what little testing I did do showed that it worked alright.

    All in all, you'd probably be better off with a NAND-based adapter like the Supercard, M3 Perfect, or G6.

    It's been officially abandoned so you are better off with a cart that's still supported by the manufacture.

    I own one and it still works, but hunting down the software for it if you lose anything is a pain.
