    i have an ez flash v and i think it saves to the micro sd card when you turn the ds back on and start a game. it also needs a savelist.

    ive been having problems with games that are not yet on the save list so i have to change the type every time i play.

    does r4 have save list too?

    how and when does r4 save? does it save directly to the micro sd card the moment you press save in a game?

    i sometimes have problems with corrupt save files in ezflash v. does it also happen in r4?

    do you recommend r4 over ezflash v?

    thanks [​IMG]

    R4 builds a save file when you start the game the first time, then always just saves the game to that spot (it works exactly as if you were using the actual commercial cart)

    No. It saves directly to the flash memory on the microSD card, so it doesn't have any need for a battery.

    I've never used an EZ-V, so I can't say from experience which is better. I do recommend the R4 in general.

    I recommend the R4 over the EZ V. I have both of them and I prefer the R4 over the EZ V for the simple fact that the R4 is just easier to use. With the EZ-V, you have to maintain a save list in order for the games to save properly. With the R4 it doesn't use a save list and it's not as picky with the micro sd card that you use with it.

    have you ever played Virtual Boy Advance? r4 is basicly a vba that runs nds roms and homebrew.
