    Hi all,

    This is one of my first posts, so i hope this works (although I have been a gbatemp member for long).

    A lot of online sellers offer 3 different kind of M3 DS Real packs:
    -M3 DS Real Perfect Bundle Pak (gba+rumble)
    -M3 DS Real Rumble Bundle Pak (rumble)
    -M3 DS Real Rumble RAM Bundle Pak (rumble ram)

    This leads to 3 different slot2 devices (expansion pack):
    -gba expansion device
    -rumble device
    -rumble RAM device

    So what is actually the difference between the rumble device and the rumble RAM device?

    Are those the same? If yes, why do a lot online sellers offer two different packs? (or you could say, why is the rumble RAM device not combined with the GBA device into the perfect bundle pak?)

    Hope to get some info.... [​IMG]

    There are 3 different packs you can buy

    the perfect bundle ( which is what i bought) comes with the gba expansion pack- flash gba games to it and the NDS browser, and the rumble pak- Used for NDS games that have rumble like Metroid Pinball

    the rumble ram pack - this is used for rumble effect in games plus it has added ram for the use of the NDS Browser ONLY, and from what i understand gba games cant be flashed to this only the NDS browser can

    Rumble pack - this is used for NDS games that have rumble like metroid pinball

    Hope this helps answer your question

    Thanks for the fast reply!

    So if I want to do NDS browsing and GBA games, I should go for a perfect bundle!!!!

    Yes the NDS browser rom needs to be patched before use

    I dont understand what u mean about Flashing the browser to the gba exp pack

    U patch the nds browser rom and drap and drop it onto your micro sd in the nds folder

    boot the card and select browser thru the m3 real gui, it flashes the browser to the gba exp pack, just like a gba game

    OK thanks much Kizmatti. One more question, does the patch get applied before or after trimming the browser rom, or does it matter?

    You apply the patch before putting it onto the card. As far as I know you don't need to trim the browser rom.

    In my rush to have a M3 Real I ended up getting the one with just the rumble pack. I wonder if any of you guys know if there is a website where I could just get the rumble/ram pack or the GBA pack without having to buy another M3 Real.

    divineo.com has Rumble+RAM and GBA packs. I didn't see any standalone Rumble packs though

    Google it, I'm not sure if posting the link to it here is allowed or not. Anyway, took me about 10 minutes to find it.
