    So i have a supercard mini sd and i want to play gbc games. i do the goomba tutorial to make them gba files. then i run it through the supercard program. but where it says patch it always fails. do i have to manually patch it? but the games go on my sd and they run on my GB micro. but when i save using the game it doesnt work. when i do L+R it says save state but it still doesnt work. im planning on getting a ez flash iv just need to find a legit vendor.

    IIRC, you don't need to patch them.

    H'okay, so there's a few things to address here. The Supercard MiniSD has a built-in version of Goomba Color, where you just put the *.gb and *.gbc files on your card, with an accompanying 64 KB *.sav file, and you use the standard L+R+A+Select button combo to save. However, this is a very old version of Goomba Color ("alpha 6" to be exact), and you probably don't want to use it.

    Instead, create a *.gba compilation with the Goomba Frontend like normal. From the PHWiki guide on Goomba Color usage on the Supercard:
    It looks like you're doing everything correct except for the final step of getting the updated SRAM into the *.sav file via the QPC saving method.

    EDIT: For the record, it's okay if the Supercard software says "fail" in the patch status. It's expecting to patch commercial games, not homebrew files like Goomba Color.
