    Just bought an action replay and was wondering if the in build ram still works for launching games that need extra ram when using pseudo saturn on the cart.

    the ram still works,think only saves dont work.
    see if your saturn is 20 or 21 pin,you can buy rhea or phoebe.

    remember action replay is NOT a substitute for the backup ram cart. Games need a real memory card to save to cart in-game as they're supposed to.

    indeed,first you save to internal mem of saturn,then in menu saturn,you have to copy it manually to action replay,only with the backup ramcard.

    I just mean i don't need the save function of the action replay cart since i got these spare battery's. I can still save internally. The battery's that are used to store internal saves cost like 2 euro for 20 of them here so i got a lot of them.

    Yeah do you got his email since his email isn't on the site anymore. I know he still makes them but not as openly anymore as before. Oh nvrm, i see he only accepts a number of orders each time.

    you have to check the website regulary to see if orders are open.
    but it is worth the patience,i like my rhea and gdemu,its great to have many games on sdcard.

    Yeah i know, but i work 12 hours a day so i have no time at all to check regulary. And when preorders are finally back open i'm probably gonna be 2 late anyway since they get sold out extremely quick. Modded action replay cart instead and i'm fine with it that way. Having Rhea would be great and better but since i can't check regulary and they're always sold out it i have to resort to pseudo saturn instead wich also does the job fine.

    My modchips are on the way but I am using the AR Pseudo v.0832 and some games I have to patch with the cdpatcher for them to load. I have 3 questions:

    1. Since I don't know which requires cdpatcher is it a good idea to just patch them all before burning?
    2. If my image is bin/cue do I just patch the cue file since cdpatcher does not see the .bin file?
    3. When I have my Saturn modchipped will the games that I used cdpatcher work as normal?

    Thanks in advance.
