    I'm not really sure what my choices are for Slot-2. I'm looking for GBA support, and rumble capabilities. The card to be sturdy and high compatibilities. That's pretty much it. Oh, and not too expensive (below $40). I'm already planning to get supercard one.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    You should get the EZ-Flash 3in1 Expansion Pack. It's cheap (about 20 dollars) and it is the only one with GBA support and Rumble. Oh, you'll also get 16 MB of RAM (which is probably the best available).

    Another good choice might be the Ewin Expansion Pack, but you'll need to get a seperate Rumble Pack.

    i use the 3in1, its ram and gba are great, but the rumble feature is horrible, loud & obnoxious, and just unpleasant to use, other than that, its fine

    Over there.
    You can set your rumble to low, too. If it's really that obnoxious...

    People seem be enjoying the cut down elink and 3 in 1 carts but if you do go more advanced.

    Likewise the rest of the supercard range is best left unsaid when it comes to GBA: http://rothmans.joskeonline.com/supercardsite/

    As well as the SC rumble lacking decent GBA support EZFlash have the EZ4 lite compact (this is a cheap one) and M3 have the m3 professional that I would avoid if you want GBA.

    Why does Supercard Lite non rumble have such a bad reputation? Once you get the ROMs patched they seem to run pretty well. It also supposedly has the most RAM out of any slot 2 cart (for DSLinux). Is there some kind of problem with the memory it plays the ROM off of? Other than that it's a great cart and you can put 2GB on it. I don't see what the problem with it is. Until a slot 2 comes out with SDHC isn't it the best slot 2 cart?

    Supercard miniSD WITHOUT(!) rumble are only 23USD on dealextreme. No rumble, but its an ok exchange for the price.

    The slot-2 Supercards are among the best in DS game support (for slot-2 that is), but for GBA gaming they come short. Most games will run fine, but some more intense games will have slowdowns due to the Supercard containing slow RAM for the GBA games to run from. Furthermore, you must press a button combination after saving in-game in order for the save to be finalized (GBA games only), and while this isn't too much trouble to do, many users find it to be annoying.

    More info about the slowdowns can be found at http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/SupercardGBASlowdowns

    sup guys, i have an interesting question.

    Im not sure if its worth it, but i have a GBA SP, and i dont have a DS anymore. i cannot afford a DS and would like to get a slot 2 card that works for my GBA SP. mainly to play Translated games (i.e. Fire Emblem 6 translated) so if you have any ideas for cards that work please let me know.

    On top of my head the best slot 2 card for GBA only would be EZ-Flash IV. It is expensive though.

    Don't be an asshole, if he made his own thread someone would have said "use the search function there's lots of threads about that blah blah."
