    Been looking around online and I've found a few patches here and there that let you play multiplayer games via link cable around the web (mostly for Pokemon). I was wondering if I could find them all the ones that have been made (or a lot of them) in one place. Is there such a place?

    The "patches" are mainly just ROMs I patched and ripped from my EZ2, I am not sure why the EZ2 save patches do not trouble linking as much as the EZ4 ones (which do appear to be a lot cleaner in terms of what is changed) but it does seem to be the case. I link most of the ones I have ever made in http://ezflash.sosuke.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=17714 . The topic has come up a few times so there might be another around on GBAtemp somewhere
    I have not seen anybody else make any elsewhere on the internet.

    If you have need of another game that you want to try (and GBATA's SRAM patcher, putting it on there raw and the other stuff does not work) I can probably make some more. Though I will probably have to set up my EZ2 on an old XP laptop or something.

    Ah, thank you! Four Swords was my main concern, and I figured I might as well try to find any others that are out there while I'm at it.

    Reading through the thread, you just apply the ips patch and copy/paste into the MiniSD without putting it through the client? Or do you apply the save patch as well?

    Nope, just copy it across after patching. It is best to also make a save file (copy and rename a suitably sized existing one, no worries about what it contains as the game should handle it).

    If you already have the cables and several GBA systems, did you play Pacman VS? It is worth the try :bow:
