    So I have my DS-X, and I love it. It's freaking sweet no doubt, but I really am missing out on my GBA port... all that's there is a dust cover (Ds Lite, obviously).

    So, I decided I want a DS flash cart for my GBA roms, but I need it to sit flush in a Lite. The problem? I'm looking for one that specifically does JUST GBA, so it would, hopefully, be reasonably priced. does such a card exist? If not, what are my alternatives? Thanks alot guys.

    well, i think that most gba only flashcarts have a large casing (ie. not flush) ie ez3. ez4 is fairly well priced and good gba compat, but not exclusively gba and also not quite flush (1-2mm).

    i think i have heard of a company releasing (or was going to) one that meets ur needs, but i can't remember the brand. i'm trying to remember now, ans checking the net. i will probably update my post shortly when i figure it out if i can.

    ewin2? (it's not flush w/ the lite)

    the supercard lite does gba too, but it sucks. I have one, and it's not worth it for gba games.

    what about the g6? I dont have one, so I guess you can check the reviews (the link is at the top)

    GBA support is the reason those cards are so expensive. And since all GBA cards also support NDS ROMs, there is no such thing as a "GBA-only card".

    I would suggest the EZFlash4 Lite Deluxe. It's relatively cheap, and has 100% GBA support with no lag.

    No it's not the same thing. The EZ4-Compact, M3 Pro and Supercard Rumble carts (lite and standard size) cannot play GBA roms. Even though the cartridge looks like a GBA one they've taken the support out so it only runs DS software, which is why they're cheaper.

    [Edit] Sorry, the sale site claims it'll only play GBA roms up to 64mbit (8MB), which means it'll play some GBA games but not others. I think.

    Actually, just to confuse matters, the EZ4Lite Compact WILL now run GBA code (since the latest update) but only up to a certain size of rom IIRC.
    Not sure how good/successful it may be, as I just don't have any time for GBA personally.
    Check out the English language EZFlash forums at sosuke or the EZFlash wiki (gooooooooglit).

    This one will only run GBA ROMs up to 8 MB in size. GBA ROMs are up to 32 MB in size, meaning this card won't support half of them. The better half [​IMG]

    Well that settles that. But is it flush, or was that other guy correct when he says it sticks out?

    It's flush. color matching. plays everything. like EVERYTHING. it's like 79 bucks but think of all you save by playing those naughty 'backups' instead of buying real stuff.
