    I recently got my GBA Expansion Pack, and the seller didnt tell me that the expansion was only for M3 Real cards :/

    I got GBA Games to work with the exploader, but everytime I try to load something into the NOR-Mode the loader just resets and Im back at the NDS Loader Thingie.
    That wouldnt be a big problem normally, but I would like to use the linkage function, and I cant seem to figure out a different way to use it.

    Any ideas?

    The M3 GBA pack doesn't have any NOR. PSRAM only.

    Use the PSRAM loading mode, you can press L and R to switch modes.

    I do not believe there is any way for linkage as the GBA game disappears from the RAM after power off. I'm not sure if M3 Real supports it either(It might have been a firmware option), but it doesn't matter since you only have a M3 Simply.

    thats because it only works with the m3 real
    a rom can be loaded onto it within the m3 real firmware then you can launch a NDS game to create a linkage

    you lose out on a lot of features such as
    gba cheats,
    gba rts,
    gba rtc,
    built in gba loading in OS,
    using it without a m3 real
