    How about Linkage function working properly?

    Im going to try this out, as this is what Ive been expecting. Maybe SD cards improved support?

    I think this can't be final...so much room for improvement.

    Peace

    The e19 versions had cheat support as well. Anyways guess it's time to fire up an upgrade once again.

    Trimming worked fine for me in 3.15b and e19 (update). Use Normal boot.

    Maybe it was misunderstood that the 'big update' would be for current m3 hardware. They just released news saying that there is going to be an 'm3 professional' which is the same as an m3 but doesn't have GBA capability and has PDA features.

    yeah although I haven't seen any statement that there's definitely going to be an "M3 Professional" released outside of China, I'm wondering if this is going to require two different versions of M3's software (both the GM and the loader). If the idea is that the std. M3 series gets GBA but not the PDA, and the Pro series gets the PDA junk but no GBA, you've practically got 2 different product lines there. Some games may temporarily be able to play on the std. series in normal mode, while I would assume that with the "M3 Professional" there is only fastboot. Well, I guess we'll find out everything soon enough.

    Does normal boot mean that the whole game is loaded into memory before playing? And fast boot plays directly from the SD/CF card?
