    I use a m3 lite on a gba sp with the gba casing instead of the ds slot 2 casing. Im trying to get mother 3 working but it is unable to save and I am noticing some slowdown. anyone know how to get this game running well on the m3 lite

    Have you patched it with "hardware 2" option on your M3 Game Manager?
    I was playing it with no problems with game or saving on my M3 Lite...But than I decided to flash my EZ Flash II, so it feels like I have original game..

    I can confirm that M3 Lite Perfect doesn't have any problems with it though..

    Uh, I've got the same setup and it's working absolutely fine.
    Have you even patched the Mother 3 game with the M3 Software?

    Tell me what exactly you did setting it up.

    Nothing, I enabled soft-reset and RTS, but you don't have to if you don't want to....

    I think that should do it..

    well, if you were able to read japanese, i'm sure you wouldn't have this problem because you'd have already played the original japanese version which you should already have just to support nintendo! ;D
