    A friend of mine sent me a bunch of Dragonballz/Pokemon movies in .gba format, and he said my child can play these on the EZFlash4 on his GBASP- how do i do this?

    Do i need to download and install moonshell, or is that already part of the EzFlash program on the cart? Also, where do i put them on the mini sd card? Do i just load them with the EZClient?

    cheers!

    If they are already .gba files, then you should just play them like you would play any other .gba game. I don't know much about the EZ4, though, so I could be wrong.

    you probably need to patch/load them with the ezclient like a normal gba game, then they should run fine.

    OSW! My saviour from the BG site, how are you? Small world, lol!

    I'll give that a try...I guess i should probably not select the "add save patch" and "reset" options when i load them thru the client though eh?

    thanks to you and Kaos for the replies!

    haha yes, i recognised you. i'm good thanks [​IMG] . is everything working "ok" with the ez4 now?

    i don't think the options will matter much at all...
    actually, i think you should leave "save patch" selected, because the video could possibly need saving after all.

    also, if they don't work, try copying the games to the NOR memory (i think this might be with gba select or start button)

    the EZ4 Client is only needed for save patches, otherwise just put it on your miniSD/microSD and run it.

    I'm guessing it's either an official GBA Video title or a random video converted with Meteo. In either case, you should be able to run it directly like any GBA game.
