So yea im thinking of buying another NDS Software. But this time a Slot-2. Im thinking of a EZ-Flash 3 in 1 expansion pack.

1. Does it have a built in memory? If so, how much?
2. If it doesnt have a built in memory, can i put in my 1 GB MicroSD Card in?(Im going to buy a 2 GB Kingston for the R4 and transfer)
3. Does it work on the R4?
4. Is there a speical tool/program to run the EZ-Flash 3 in 1 Expansion Pack?
5. What are the problems that can occur?
6. Is $21.95 a good price? Not including shipping?
7. Or if the 3 in 1 sucks for the R4, what are some other Slot-2 software?

Thanks guys for all the info.

1. It contains 32 MB of NOR flash, though you can also trick it into using the 16 MB of PSRAM to run GBA games. This is enough, as the largest GBA games are 32 MB.
2. You transfer games from your slot-1 card to the 3in1.
3. Yes, with GBA ExpLoader
4. See above
5. No clue.
6. It's a standard price.
7. Your other main option is the Ewin expansion pack, which has some GBA compatibility issues.

Other questions: see the GBATemp wiki article on the 3in1.

Thanks DanTheManMS, i dont understand your answer on "1". So are you saying it has a total of 16 MB? And on answer 2, i have to put the GBA Rom on my R4, then it "transfers" to the 3 in 1?

1. No, it has 48mB of RAM. 16mB of it is volatile and known as PSRAM. (It is deleted when the power is gone) 32mB of it is non-volatile and is called NOR RAM. All 32mB games must be loaded into NOR, and the rest can be loaded into PSRAM. (Much quicker)
2. yes

Isn't it "NOR Flash" not "NOR Ram?"
Right, it's NOR Flash. myuusmeow, you can't just add up the numbers like that. NOR flash acts very much like original GBA game cartridges, while the RAM just acts as a speedy place to launch the GBA game from. I know I'm not making it very clear, but there is a very big difference between the two.

    My classroom is kinda a toxic environment
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    True, which would be a good choice if it releases you from that suffering.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea exactly
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I got into a toxic environment when I switched schools, something I was pressured to do long ago by my mom mostly
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because there were a couple of teachers who were objectively bad and who kept giving me bad grades, even thogh if I had stayed they would leave in the following year anyways
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    I'm a verbal abuse víctim i think
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but I had noit known that and I let myself be manipulated into quitting...I'd rather have let myself be have fights with my mom than to let myself be blackmailed into effectively destroying my life or leading to it
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    my mother was the one who verbally abused me
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    with me it started with verbal abuse...I tried to ignore it...until it got worse and after summer break it went from verbal into sneaky physical, not just theft but once they saw me as real problem they tried to poison me outright
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because they couldn't apply their usual tactics anymore it all went worse from there
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and I was a threat to their hierarchy and the way the gang worked
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I did in the end cause the gang leader who was installed there by the larger gang, to loose his influence over the classmates but it had a terrible cost
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    in that it caused my other best friend, who joined that school, to betray me
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    to both the powers that be and the larger gang at play
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    by recording conversations of me...they also convinced him over time that I never cared about him and he started to beat over my head things from the past, courtesy of psycholigsts work
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I was stupid to trust them and think they wouldn't start a coverup in agreement of the school who didn't want further scandals on their name
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    when I told the psychologist the name of my best friend in the group I didn't realize that would seal my fate
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    this and more is why I don't trust authorities either and why I became more of a "lone wolf" for a very long time
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Lone wolf until when?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    maybe I'll become one again completely if this crap goes on that I'm getting flooded with lately
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so maybe forever from then on
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Hope you find your missing friend
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but I didn't have any friends for years, barely talked to anyone irl at that time, only had friends online basically
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    thanks
