    I was just wanderin' how to get rid of this annoying GBA Loader-"background"? Instead I want to play GBA games in full screen of course... and yes i'm one of these noobs:)

    And also NES-classic Zelda (1) for GBA just says "Gamepak error" when loading the file. Any suggestions?

    You can't play GBA in full screen. To get rid of the background just go into the '_SYSTEM_' folder and delete 'gba_frame.bmp' (I think its called that)

    Thanks for the info.

    Another question: is there any meaning to use PSRAM instead of NOR?
    Seems like many people had problems with saved files when playing in PSRAM...
    For example when I for the first time play Minish cap it says "Save file corrupted" in the beginning, and that's even before I've ever saved in that game. What is wrong?

    I haven't had any save file problems, so I can't answer your question, but just so you know, deleting the gbaframe.bmp will look horrible and give you eye-seizures [​IMG]

    The NES Classic packs have some kind of protection on them, look for a IPS patch that fixes this.

    Advanscene has it, its GBA rom #1494

    PSRAM makes the game load onto the 3 in 1 faster

    Right, but it is reset if you turn off your DS. My understanding is that with the NOR flash on the 3 in 1, once you load a game it stays there even if you power off. So you can just keep a game on there and start using it as soon as you power on.
