    I can get NDS roms to play but for the life of me I just cannot get it to run GBA roms, that when I try to execute the roms it says no slot-2 GBA card found.

    Am I missing something completely oblivious to me?

    Is there anything else i can try i am either getting "slot2 expansion pack not found please redo from start." or DLDI compatible screen loading...and nothing happens.

    I remember that some conflict happened between M3 and the creator of GBAExpLoader. So M3 is no longer compatible with GBAExpLoader. Only way to play GBA games is to use the ram expansion that comes with the M3 Perfect Bundle.

    the latest ver of GBA ExpLoader will work with the m3 real with a patch
    without the patch it will say unsupported hardware or whatever

    Rodoulph removed support from M3 products after he received a cease and desist letter from the M3 team after he tried to make a fully functioning DLID ver of M3 Sakura so other carts can use it

    THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH YOU HAVE A GREAT COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE HERE THANK YOU ALL AGAIN! [​IMG]

    Also can you bring up any type of menu/pause function when playing a GBA game? Also is there some more documentation/manual for what I'm using so I know more of how to use it? [​IMG]

    Documentation maybe on the M3DS Real and moreover using GBA Exploader .58b?
