    Like if I found some loose 32megabyte GBA cart, is it possible to write a whole new game to it? Like Mother 3 for example [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Best you can do is find a single rom Flash cart. Load up the Mother 3 translated version, then stuff the guts into a real Mother 3 cart. Have considered it, but seems expensive for a single game.

    they don't have it anymore and i don't know where to get it now, but dealextreme used to have a flashcard that looked like an original gba game except the case was clear purple, it held one rom that booted like an original and it was under $10 that sounds like what you want.

    Because if you had to buy one GBA game for every rom you had pirated... y'know...
    Let's say it would cost the exact same thing to buy the games instead of downloading them.
