    Does nobody read?
    Or at least look at pictures?
    Th epicture on the official passme site clearly shows the metroid cart (or whatever it is) being held into place by several strips of metal, which are actually the pins from a PCI slot on a mobo. No-one expects you to solder anything..so put the baer away and dont have a heart attack.

    On the store link it says that it can NOT play commercial roms, is this just to make it a little more "legal" or does it actually not work for DS roms?

    There are no DS Roms.

    There are organized DS dumps, but they're far from being roms.

    Would the SuperCard be compatible as a GBA Flash Cart to use in conjunction with the PassMe?

    Dont see why not. They havent said anything about certian cards not working, so i'd say "yes" is a safe bet

    I will say this one time:

    The PassMe cannot be used for commercial games.

    At all. Whatsoever. Period. The development/cracking community does not exist to supply the kiddy pirates. It's a developmental tool to run only homebrew code on the DS.

    Ergo, if you are not a coder interested in writing DS software or do not have a major interest in playing the minesweeper, battleship, etc demos then this device is useless to you.

    The PassMe allows code from the GBA cart to load onto the DS memory and run from there, taking advantage of all the DS hardware. The code is not read straight from the GBA cart. There are no working NDS roms. If there were, they would not fit in the DS memory.

    Edit: [I doubt this much swearing is allowed on the board so I deleted it. If you thought the PassMe was for commercial roms, consider yourself thoroughly bitched at.]

    They're very easy to get, why don't you spend some easy money on it, and see for yourself the wonders this little pass me can make? [​IMG]

    As for me, I'm waiting for geebarks eggz to list them.
