    I dont want this post to become one of those where people just argue, but i want to know, so:

    What is the best gba slot thing that can play games (obviously) and preferably (but not necisarily) be able to have a GB/GBC emulator work.

    Please say things like pros and cons, or unique fetures, like if one is realy new, or if one has save states.
    (OH and is there one that when in the ds and it is closed, "goes to sleep" like other normal ds games? or is that not possible, becuase it isnt conected to the ds's softwares that knows that?)

    Thanks in advance

    Note, i have a microsd HC (just found out that matters), and an SD

    I'd say the Ez-Flash IV. If you have a DS cart already, get the EZ-Flash 3-in-1.

    If you also want to use the gba flashcart with a GBA/SP/micro, you can get a EZ-Flash IV.

    If you already got a slot 1 and need only a slot2, you can follow the first link in my sig and goto the section that says "What other GEPs are available besides the 3in1" and read that.

    Oh yes, i want it to be playable on the Sp/GBA [​IMG]

    Also, i will look up those carts, and try to find that thread...

    wait the ez flash 4 doesnt have a real time clock, so does that mean it cant play games that use it at all (like emerald) ?

    and will this one be able to use an emulator to run GB/GBC games?

    Whats that shell thing i hear about? suposedly it lets me run the smaller, lite, ezflash 4 on my SP?

    and the EZ flash 4 lite DOESNT support HC, is that true? Would an HC work in an ezflash 4 (not lite) with a minisd adapter, or not cus its HC?

    gba flashcart tech ended long before SDHC showed up. the maxium capacity is 2GB support by those with removable media. And like shadow said, you can pick and choose the games you wan't amd most likely never exceed the 2GB capacity.

    You want to ignore anything with the word lite in it if you want to play on a GBA SP.

    It's been asked and answered before; you can play Emerald but anything time-based (or clock-based) will not work. You'll get an error message whenever you start the game.
