    I was just wondering what games use the Real Time Clock? I know that the Pokemon series use RTC but what other games use it?

    For all the hype by Nintendo and flash cart makers it was only some pokemon titles and Boktai/solar boy django titles that use it.

    Unconfirmed but I seem to recall some utterances of GBA polarium as well.

    I'm pretty sure some Tony Hawks games use it too.

    Really? Why would they? There certainly isn't any need for an RTC.

    I believe Tony Hawks underground asked you to set time in some of the later versions but it was accelerated time for game dependent events, not RTC as found in pokemon and such.

    aren't there more games that require other stuff? like wario twisted i think requires a sensor and bokai requires the light thing

    There was a yoshi game that also had motion sensor, nothing else springs to mind though.
    The only other thing of note is the EEPROM patches required by the classic nes, dragonball z and some other dragonball titles. NES stuff should not be worried about as HVCA and pocketnes surpass it and dragon ball games are a)bad (even as licensed titles go) and b) got patches.

    Grab pretty much all the patches you might need here:

    Hmm... I'm not sure but I think Pokemon Pinball Ruby/Sapphire come with a rumble pack. I'm just assuming this because the old Pokemon Pinball for the Gameboy Color had this. I have no idea though. [​IMG]
