    Few Questions

    1st: Does it play gbc and gb roms?

    2nd: If so does it play the gb games in black and white?

    3rd: How much more of your ds battery does it take up?

    Thanks for any help guys.

    1) Yes, you need to use an emulator. Use Lameboy for gbc and gb.
    2) I think it does play it in bnw. Why wouldnt it?
    3) I dont really think it affects battery.

    In my experience and from most of the posts from other people with it, it does indeed drain the battery faster. Seems to differ a bit from person to person as far as how much faster. Mine seems to only run for a couple hours with it in, so I make a point of never really using it unless I'm somewhere I can plug in.

    *edit* Just to clarify, whether I'm using it or not, if it's in it shortens my battery life. Doesn't seem to matter if I'm using it or not.

    For question 2 i meant only in black and white or can they be played in color.

    Also to play gbc and gb roms all i need to do is put the emulator on the memory card pop it in the m3 and then just load it up on the ds with the m3 and gba pack in,no patching or anything like that?

    Thanks for the help [​IMG]

    you dont need the m3 gba pack if you are using an emu to play gb and gbc games
    its all run from the slot-1 cart, however gba is not

    I get like 4-5hrs of battery life and my gba pak in plugged in 24/7

    wait, it should auto DLID patch by the M3 Real firmware
    place the nds file in the root dir of the MicroSD card (dont patch it, just place it like you recieved it)
    and start it

    i think i have lameboy 0.11(newer version) and it works fine straight from the m3sakura menu.

    if you have trouble running it in m3sakura, make sure you DIDN'T dldi patch, and also make sure you don't have a wallpaper set on m3sakura.

    You can use it if you change skin, cut not if you use custom background....that breaks automatic DLDI patching..
