    Well, after searching madly for one of these GBA adapters… I found this "trait-tech" site…

    "http://www.trait-tech.com"

    Is this site an okay place to buy from?

    I suggest looking more into the EZ flash iv, it's a little easier to find, but not cheap. Still i think it's pretty much the only slot-2 card out there that you can still buy in most online shops.

    yeah. I mentioned to him in a pm I sent him that I've converted to a supercard ds2 for my ds stuff and an EZ Flash IV for my gba stuff. As it was when I was on my M3iZero + GB adapter before I made the switch, there were times when it didn't work as well as it should have. I also recommend the EZ Flash IV..

    It comes with the GBA shell.

    Or you can buy it as part of the M3 Real bundle, cost you a lot more. Be also aware that it has a RAM module only, meaning your not going to be able to use it in a GBA/SP/micro.

    Don't count on getting the famed classic M3 GBA, without asking users here to sell their used ones. That's difficult to find today.

    Care to elobarate on where you found it, to help others that find this thread, and are looking for help?

    No, it doesn't. I've bought one recently, and it came loose, without extra shells, and in DS Lite casing.

    Well that sucks to know now. M3 probably changed the packaging contents, I ordered one way back when it became available and it came with the alt shells. The alt shells were under the plastic retainer that hold the GEP.

    Either that or you bought a returned one where the previous user took the alt shells.

    Actually, gamersection just sent it loose with no packaging. It was definitely new though, as the pins had no abrasions what-so-ever. It does suck though, because I wasn't told, and I really would have liked to have the extra shells. :(

    Wotwotwot? I spent 3 hours scouring the net and most of your posts… I thought you said that if you flashed the ROM/SAV to NOR it would work on a GBA?

    Anyway, I use a DS phat… Which is why I need the GBA shell…


    I meant I found someone on GBAtemp willing to sell theirs…

    I would buy a EZ Flash IV, but It doesn't have RTC… Which seems to be the case with most Slot-2/GBA carts…

    Buy it ---> Grab a GBA game ---> Mutilate it ---> Replace the shell.

    Done. If you're a purist, re-apply the sticker. Some steam and it'll come right off.
