    Hi. I had some questions that I'm hoping some of you could answer for me.

    M3 perfect allows you to patch GBA ROMs to have a menu that can be brought up with L+R+A+B, where you can make save states and go back to M3's main menu.
    How comes this patch doesn't work with all ROMs? It usually never works with emulators on GBA or homebrew stuff. How comes they aren't compatible?

    Also, the M3 has a cheat feature, and in the patch menu, there's a "Game Cheat" selection, but it ALWAYS says "Open File fail" or something like that. Why does that NEVER work? Why is it there if it never works in the first place?
