    Hello I have a few questions.

    1.

    I see that There is a memory expansion cart avaliable that inserts into slot 2.
    I read that the Nintendo DS Browser and Certain Games can take advantage of this Added Memory.

    Which games take advantage of this Extra Memory?

    2. If I were to buy a Slot 2 Flashcart such as the G6 which has some RAM, Is there certain homebrew that can take advantage of that RAM.

    Thanks,
    Kidcash.

    Thanks,

    I am unsure of which Slot2 card to buy, I am not sure how much RAM the G6 has.
    I see the CycloDS Slot2 Card has 32 Megabytes of RAM, which would be good for any homebrew designed to take advantage of that RAM.

    Do you have any suggestions for a Slot 2 Card?

    Thanks.

    I would recommend the M3 Lite. It's a expensive cart, but also a good one.

    Every cart that can play most of the GBA roms has 32 MB RAM. There are also a few (like the M3 Pro) that have only 4 MB of RAM. I don't think many homebrew supports that...

    If you don't already have one, I would recommend purchasing a slot-1 cart.

    Then get the EZF3in1 and use that as RAM expansion.

    I have a G6 DS real Slot1 Card.

    I would prefer to get a good Slot 2 Card that does not Stick out of the slot.
    Any other suggestions than the M3 Lite? For some reason the online store I buy my products at only has the CycloDS Slot 2 Card.

    I suggest a Slot1 like the R4 or M3DSS and an EZFlash 3in1 Expansion Pack. It all fits flush and give you RAM, rumble, GBA and DS.

    Alternatively, an R4/M3S + Supercard Lite forms a worthy combo, with RAM for your browser and GBA compatibility (which is not very great though)

    I suggest the EZ Flash 3 in 1 as well.

    I just got mine, and I'm currently enjoying GBA support, plus rumble and RAM. Not to mention, it's easy to use. [​IMG]
