    Hey Temp, its been a while.

    Since the release of the Mother 3 translation has come out, I have been getting into the GBA again.

    Here is my problem. I am overseas, for about another year, and my G6->Computer adapter is back at home.
    I guess i could wait till i can get it shipped over, but then i remembered all this talk a while back about the 3in1 expansion thing and GBA with a slot 1.

    The question,
    Because you can use, and I do, the G6 for RAM expansion for the DS browser,
    can the G6 be combined with an R4 and used to give the R4 the RAM it needs to play GBA games, similar to a M3real+Expansion combo?
    so...

    g6+r4=slot1GBA?
    or do i need to get my g6 adapter again.


    Cheers

    I'm not completely sure it's possible.....

    Mother 3 is 32 MB in size, and I'm not sure how it'll act.....I'm guessing, in theory, it could be done....But, why don't you actually try it out, and you'll see..

    I don't see why it wouldn't be possible? The G6 can run every GBA-rom, including ones of 32 MB. If you use GBA ExpLoader on the R4, it should be able to boot any GBA-game on the G6 just fine, even without patching.
