Hello everyone.

I just got the M3 Real and have the latest version of M3 Sakura. The menu loads just fine but when trying to load a GBA game (from the /GBA/ directory) the gameboy logo on the top screen is shown and then freezes. I have tried other games, all with the same result.

The GBA roms are properly unzipped and end with the .gba extension (example: 0045 - Castlevania - Circle of the Moon (U).gba). Also, when selecting the roms in Sakura there should be a small image of the game to the left, but doesn't show for any of them.

Can any of you help me solve this problem ? Many thanks in advance.

This looks more like not having a GBA Expansion pack..
If you only have a 4 Mbit Ram/Rumble Cart, you can't run commercial roms, just GBA homebrew..

Turns out I don't have the GBA expansion pack. The M3 Real description said "supports slot-2 GBA" so I assumed that includes commercial games.

Thanks your your help anyway.
