    Hey you guys [​IMG]

    I just bought the gameboy micro, I already have some games for it but actually I'm looking for a flash card for it.

    I dont want to spend a lot of money on it. I saw some on chinese sites and stuff and sites like dealextreme but dont know which to pick.

    Things i don't want with this card are:

    - I don't want it to stuck out of the gameboy. Just a good size card.

    - I want lil bit of space so i can put a lot of games on it.

    and

    - Is it possible to play Gameboy color games on it than?

    Thx

    for reply


    PS sorry for the bad english i m not from the usa [​IMG]

    If you're not from the USA why did you set your country to usa?
    But anyway, supercard sd is a good gba flashcart, although as far as I know it does stick out a bit.
    And I don't think there's any gba flashcart that can play gbc games.

    I'm not sure, I don't have one myself, a friend of mine does.
    You might have to do a little research here.

    I think you could play GB/GBC games with goomba though...

    EDIT: Yes, you can. Here's the link to the goomba site.

    EDIT 2: that's only for original gameboy games.. here's goomba color.

    If you want your games to save, then yes.

    You're better at English than most Americans I've seen on this site.

    That's not necessarily true. Many GBA games have EEPROM or Flash saves (which you need to patch) but many have SRAM already. GBATA is a good patching program, and tells you if you need patching.

    I like the EZ4, it was my favorite GBA cart and didn't stick out.

    The only GBA flashcart that had support in playing GB/GBC games without the use of an emulator was the FlashAdvance and Flash2Advance with the use of the GB bridge. None of which is sold anymore.

    EZFlash IV. GBA + Nes emulator. Not so sure about the GB/C support though.

    I'm using my old M3 Perfect Lite with my GBA Micro, they work flawlessly together. 100% compatibility so far, no complicated burning game roms to memory procedures, etc.

    Got no idea if those are still made though, I had mine lying around collecting dust since I got myself an M3 Real ages ago, and figured it would work with a GBA Micro when I got my hands on one of those a few months ago. Perhaps you can find a used one if they aren't.

    What is SRAM patching? could this be the reason why my GBA Roms on my iPlayer do not save without me going back to the iplayer menu before shutting off?

    Well, no; as far as I'm aware, you're actually supposed to go back to the menu before you shut the DS off. I think it's a similar thing with Lameboy, in that it works with a virtual save in RAM, and then you have to manually make it save to MicroSD.
