    I have been able to get NES and GB games to load and they play fine with the GBA Expansion Pack. How do you save the games though? I was so used to the Supercard way of doing things and it doesn't seem to be the same way with M3 DS Real. Can some one explain how to do so.

    the expansion pack only supports GBA games

    it does not support NES and GB or GBC games

    Maybe he's using GBA Nes/GBC emulators?

    Well that kinda stinks. Looks like I will go back to the Supercard Lite for my slot 2 solution... since it can run/save GBA, GB, NES perfectly. Just was hoping to have all my games on one micro SD card instead of two.

    its just a simple expansion cart
    its not a stand alone cart like the supercard lite is

    and thats why it only cost more then half the price of the scl

    the m3 firmware has built-in emulators for gb,gbc and nes games.
    which all work through a slot2.
    and i think you had to launch them through the GBA launch menu, but i'm not sure about that.

    The built-in emulators is something i've been thinking about tinkering with recently but there doesn't seem to be much (if any) documentation on these. Anyone know of any decent guides etc (im having enough trouble trying to get gba games working!)

    Yes, I got them to run through the GBA Menu. They run just fine.

    I just can't figure out how to get them to save with the RTS feature.

    With the Supercard Lite... you hit Select+L+R+A+B+X+Y and the menu asks if you want to save. Can't seem to find it with the M3 DS Real. I would think if it can run the game... it can also save them too. Or so I would think.

    All NES work fine for me, but GBC don't work at all. Doesn't seem like there is any type of RTS for GB or NES with the M3 DS Real... like it has for GBA.

    No big deal though. I can still use my Supercard Lite for that stuff. Works fine in conjunction with the M3 DS Real.

    Well, I figured out how to save with GB games. Left and Right and save under Save State... then L+R+Select+A+B+X+Y to save into the RAM.

    Still working on NES though.
