    Hi,

    My first post, so be gentle. M3 Simply (firmware 1.01) works fine with all NDS games I throw at it. But when I plugged Dr. MArio , or Wario Twisted GBA games into Slot-2, and tried to run them from M3 GUI, all I got is white screen. I use 512MB SanDisk TF formatted FAT16.

    Is that a known M3 bug, or did I get a faulty M3? I doubt it's faulty as it runs NDS games fine and I also tried moonshell and it playes videos fine.

    Thanks.

    as far as i know bot from slot 2 is for 2nd slot flash carts and not gba games, i may be wrong though.
    just boot them from the regular ds interface.

    Do you have the M3 Pro or M3 Perfect? The M3 Pro will not run GBA games unless it's really tiny.

    Oh silly me. Thanks guys. I thought M3 Simply can pass control to an actual GBA game plugged in slot 2. I am happy that my M3 Simply is not faulty [​IMG]
