    I have the old 2slot M3 Lite Pro + Passcard, and i want to play some old pokemon games(ruby/sapphire). But i cannot figure out how to get them to play.
    If you know how to or have suggestions to get the to work, please help me.

    Thank you for your time.

    The M3 Pro reportedly only supports GBA games up to 4 MB in size, I doubt that the GBA Pokemon games are that small. However, I don't know of anyone who's ever gotten any GBA games to work at all on the M3 Pro, so I don't even know if that's accurate.

    Thank you for your quick response..

    And oh, wow, lame.. That's terrible news..
    Soo, what do i need to do to play GBA roms..? Do i need to buy the M3 GBA Expansion pack..?
    I notice it says 'M3 REAL' GBA Expansion pack.. Will it work with my M3 Simply instead..?
    If that's a problem, what can i do to play GBA roms besides pc emulators..?

    Thanks again for your time.

    Yeah... the bad news is M3 pro can't play big roms...

    If you have a slot 1 card already, it might be cheapest/best to get an EZ Flash 3in1... that will load GBA games from your slot 1 SD card (and has a rumble function and browser RAM).
