    Sorry if this has been asked before, but can the M3R support NDS-GBA linkage from two roms?
    As in, load the GBA rom into slot-2, then run the NDS game that supports the GBA link? for example, FFTA and A2?

    Also, I upgraded the firmware and found that the format of the GBA save files has changed. Can I just rename the old saves and it'll be all good?

    You could use Rudolph's GBA_ExpLoader it works with M3's GBA Expansion so when you get it find the rom you want to link press select and it will load the rom but it will not start it after it loads you will go back to the M3 Real menu chose your NDS rom to link with your GBA and it should work.

    1) press Y(it might be X I forget) while about to start a GBA games, instead of pushing A when it says launch/start
    this will load the rom up into the GBA pack and allow to to now start a NDS rom

    2) yes you can just rename the saves from .0 to .sav
    it should work fine

    You have to go into the GBA settings menu, exit, and then boot your NDS rom. It's in the FAQ I think.
