So far I know two of them. EZ Flash 4 and SuperCard mini. Are they have more than these two?
M3 released some
EZ Flash IV is the best. Just get that.
We all Concur Good Sir
EFA Linker was one of the best carts available back in the NOR flash days (all internal storage, no removable SD or other cards). There was a 256 mbit version and a 512 mbit version. I had both at one time, but my 512 went tits-up. The 256 mbit is still in use (by my daughter - I use an EZ Flash IV). Although the space is limited, because all the games are loaded on the internal memory there is no wait for loading. If you install one 256 mbit game, such as Mother 3 or Riviera, there is no loader and the game boots when the console is started, just like a retail cart. (This can also be done with smaller games, as the client software allows you to choose whether to implement the loader. With 256 mbit games, there's no option as the one game fills the cart.) With anything smaller than 256 mbit, the number of games you can have installed obviously depends on the size of the games. Anything from 2 - 8 games is possible. The EFA Linker is also capable of playing DS games from slot 2 if the DS has a PASSME cart (I think that's the correct term, it's been a while) in Slot 1, though the company went out of business sometime during the DS lifespan so I would expect support is limited to games that were released before the company closed.
There was an EFA Linker II that came out in the early days of the DS, but it never sold well and as I said the company closed down. It had a 1 gbit internal memory.
Another top-drawer line of carts back in the NOR flash days was the EZ Flash Advance. There were three generations, and AFAIK these were the predecessors to the EZ Flash IV. Like I said above, I have an EZ Flash IV and I agree with the others recommending it - there's no reason to bother with trying to find any of the old school GBA carts.
Hmm...I will keep it mind for EZ Flash IV. I did look that prince and it little bit expensive but I need save money later because I have some stuff to do.
But seriously. If you end up not buying the Ez Flash, you will regret it. Its only $20 more than the other cards and it was WAY better.
EZ Flash IV isn't the best it's just what u can still get now M3 Perfect Series of flashcarts will always be the best, but r hard to find anymore.
My collection of GBA flash carts.
from GBA Flash Cart Collectors thread.
Wow. So where I can get each of them?
Most of those you can't find anymore and most only support NOR flashing. Only the Super Card SD, EZ-flash IV and The M3 Perfect support SD cards.
My EZFA label has gone all dis-coloured and horrible looking exactly like your three. Thought it was only mine, must be cheap paper.
But I dont see any M3 Perfect on website.
Like I said, most of these you can't find anymore.
You have two EZ-Flash IV carts. Do you like linking your games up using them, does someone else use that one, or are you just a collector? (Well, obviously you're a collector, but are you just one)
Heh, and NOR only carts. It's about as quaint as running Wii emulators by compiling ROMs into the emulator itself, or using stock MIOS as opposed to Devolution for Gamecube discs. It's kind of a sad consequence of online gaming that the days of games being played better once they've aged a bit are more-or-less over for the most part...
the only available flash carts is the EZ4 and some copy of the Supercard.
All the others are extinct, at least in terms of being sold, as people who own them usually don't sell them.
EZ4 is the best option yet available nowadays.
thanks for poiting out something already said before in this thread. (and is told in every gba flashcart thread)
