    Hi all,

    What is the best slot-2 card for playing (all) GBA ROMs?

    EZ-FLASH III or IV or M3 Perfect or E-Link?

    Specs:

    -MicroSD memory
    -Fits in GBA & DS (Lite)
    -(Almost) perfect GBA compatibility
    -Black case included?
    -Most ROMs don't have to been patched

    And what is the different between these 3 cards: http://www.bamboogaming.cn/shop.php/flash-...sion-/p_48.html , http://www.bamboogaming.cn/shop.php/flash-...sion-/p_79.html , http://www.bamboogaming.cn/shop.php/flash-...pping/p_80.html ?

    I just want the best slot-2 card available..

    Thanks in advance,

    NavadeHo

    Without a doubt, if you can, get M3 Lite Perfect.....It has been already said that it's a perfect cart in any way, except the high price..

    If you can afford it, buy that one..

    That is a little bit too pricey [​IMG]

    What is your second choice?

    (I'm a little bit confused about that EZ-FLASH IV Compact & Deluxe different and things...)

    Second would be EZ Flash IV Deluxe!! Compact has shitty GBA compatibility, because it can play only smaller games..

    So just get yourself Deluxe version......and check the other thread I linked....you'll find all your answers there!

    Stupid contradiction of me..

    Well..it shouldn't be a big problem after all, but are there Lite shaped versions too?

    Yes there are, but I think you'll have a bit hard time finding it.......I'll try to look up too...

    Good God NavadeHo, just google around for EZ Flash IV Lite, sellers should come up.

    If that doesn't work find a list of flash cart sellers--usually available on each flashcards website--and start at the top of that list and go through the whole thing until you find a seller. Its not that hard and a mod should'nt have to take every step for you man.

    Thanks, great that you are helping me [​IMG]

    (There are pigeons fucking right for my window)

    @gizmo_gal: Well..I'm a little bit confused about the Deluxe/Compact...

    Edit: EZ-FLASH Dealerslist:
    arranging, unavilable temporary.

    /me kicks the thread under his ass.

    Edit:

    1. M3 Lite Perfect

    2. EZ-FLASH IV Deluxe

    3. ???


    Pros & Cons?

    Where to buy?

    I searched trough few sites, and can't find any of the Lite ones....but I'd suggest you to get the one GBA sized from DealExtreme....it's a great price and free shipping...you can't get the better deal..

    M3 Lite you shouldn't even consider, because it's really expensive and hard to find (the link I provided is the only place that sells them, that I'm aware of)..

    For pros/cons, you should check our reviews section, and those two threads I already linked you too, they are mainly about these two carts..

    Thanks, Toni Plutonij.

    I think I will order the GBA-sized EZ-FLASH IV from DX, but I will wait until I get an email from M3Adapter. (Because I asked them)

    Final question:

    So my best choice would be the M3 Perfect Lite instead of the EZ-Flash IV Deluxe/Compact or any slot-2 flashcard in the world?

    Your best choice would be getting M3 Perfect Lite, if you can afford one and find one!!!!
    After that, your best shot is EZ - Flash IV Deluxe (NOT Compact, very very bad GBA compatibility)

    That's my opinion, and opinion of 90% of members here probably!

    I'm sorry, Toni..

    But nobody was going to post and after an edit also not..I think.

    After a discussion on the biggest forum in the Dutch about this topic, I'm now sure..

    I will probably order it very soon. (Before it is out of stock)

    It's OK, that's why I placed winking smiley there! [​IMG]
    I know you double posted, because if you just edited your last post, nobody would reply....I merged your posts, and everything is fine!

    If you'll have any more questions, just ask.....but you can be pretty much sure, that M3 Perfect IS the best choice you can make, considering GBA flashcarts!
