    Hello.
    I have a DS Lite and a Supercard DSTWO for Slot-1 cart, which Slot-2 cart would you recommend?
    Ez-Flash 3in1, Ez-Flash IV or another one.

    I want to play games like Golden Sun, Pokémon Emerald... at full speed without any error.
    And if I can, connect my Slot-2 games/saves to the DSTWO or a retail Pokemon Pearl I have (but this is not a must have, since I can use Desmume for that).

    Ez-Flash 3in1 is very good. Works very well for me and the occasional rumble surprise when games use it is fun!

    I heard that it doesn't work for "games that need special features" and I'm afraid it doesn't work with Pokémon Emerald.
    I also heard you need GBA ExpLoader to make it work with the DSTWO, but I don't know how to use GBA ExpLoader.
    How do you boot the GBA games with the 3in1 and the GBA ExpLoader?

    If you are using a DSTWO, why not use tempgba?

    Because it slows down on some games (like Golden Sun 2), and other games literally are UNPLAYABLE (Digimon Battle Spirit 2 EUR, for example)
    That's why I want a Slot-2 flashcart.

    How patient are you? If the answer is "very", you may want to wait and see what Krikzz does with the GBA Everdrive, but who knows how long it will be before that actually gets released.

    If you want something NOW or in the not to distant future (next Sunday AD) please ignore my post.

    3in1 is good for using on JUST the DS/Lite.

    EZFlash IV is good for that and also functions as a standalone cart to use on a GBA.

    Or wait for the GBA Everdrive like tbb043 said and see what Krikzz does with that.

    I've got the 3in1 and EZ Flash IV, used the 3in1 quite a bit never really had any problems with it. Have barely used the IV but it seems like that might be a more versatile solution.

    I can wait, but I never had/saw an Everdrive. Are they so good to wait for them, like the DSTWO was for the DS?

    Honestly it isn't the same I know but if you have a smartphone you could play it on there. I notice if the game uses the l&r buttons a lot or has a lot of action/use if diagonal d - pad it isn't easy to play. Rpgs are fine though
