    Is it 512 megabits or 512 megabytes?

    Nice review by the way [​IMG]

    Megabits. 64 megabytes. But seriously, it is enough space if you actually want to finish your games [​IMG]

    What are the great games you can't play without the Real Time Clock? is it a big turnoff for this cart?

    Pokemon/Boktai are the only ones that come to mind, and those can be patched to manipulate time.

    RTC would have made this awesome.

    and as i noted in the other topic, is the gba linkage fully functional? ie. can a game in slot one read the save game (needed mainly in Pokemon) or is it semi-perfect where it can only recognize the game (which is fine in most cases) ?

    still it seems like a solid cart for the gba arena.

    Don't think so. Should be fine with all other linkage though

    No new cards will do that (I think it's the way they are made).

    Have you see how expensive 1 GB NOR-based flash carts can be? NOR is a lot more expensive to use than you might expect. Heck, my 128 MB (1 Gb) card cost me $125, though that was a bit expensive even at that point.

    Basically, before the M3 and Supercard and G6 came out, this type of thing is what was available. Relatively low capacity for a relatively high price, by today's standards at least.

    Except this card is fairly affordable.

    so...NOR is better than NAND?

    How?

    And if that's the case, maybe NAND would've been a btter option?

    P.S 4saken, how much does it cost

    It's nice that some companies are STILL planning on supporting the GBA flashcart market but when I tried a slot 2 M3 cart and found I could put on WAY more GBA roms compared to my previous GBA cart (a F2A Ultra) I couldn't go back.

    30 USD for the 512, which is very affordable

    Looks neat, I'm interested in getting one - but the URL for the miniolinestore NEVER loads...
