GBA SP + 8gb EZ-Flash-3 flash cart + more

Decided to sell my Game Boy Advance SP & flash cart. Here's what you get :

GBA SP Tribal Edition in good condition, unboxed but with carry case.

Three unboxed games (F-Zero Maximum Velocity, Lego Bionicle, Tetris DX).

8gb EZ-Flash-3 cart, fully boxed - this is one of (if not THE) best flash-carts for the GBA/Micro, and this is the top of the range 8gb model. Cost me about £90 to import from the US last year (you can't buy them in this country, and they're getting hard to find abroad now).

As per forum rules, I won't be including any copied game roms with it, but purely to give you an idea of the amount of storage space on the flash-cart, this is what I had on it at one point : Over 100 GBA games, an NES Emulator with a further 100-odd games, plus around 20-30 homebrew titles of varying sizes.

I still had a fair bit of space left and I hadn't compressed any of the games (there's an optional compression facility that lets you store even more stuff, with the trade-off being that compressed games take a few seconds longer to boot up).

So LOTS of storage space basically !

Looking for £65 for this package, including postage (and not open to offers at this point).

Any interest or questions, let me know, thanks !

P.S. The GBA comes with the charger of course (I just forgot to include it in the photo).

Pic(s) pls.. :)

edi, I have absolutely no idea how to upload pics here (I've sold a few bits here in the past but have never included pictures before).

If someone's prepared to do it for me I'd be very grateful (I presume I'd just email that person the pics and they'd do the rest ?), though it's probably worth seeing if there's any interest first before I go ahead and take photos.

I may consider selling the flash cart & GBA separately.

Please could you price the Flash Cart with the console? With delivery by Royal Mail Recorded Delivery & payment from a (verified) PayPal account.

Also, please could you confirm what accessories (cables, CD, etc.) come with the cartridge box?

Finally, as mentioned in edi's first post above, here's a link to help you upload some photo images:

I presume you meant to say "Please could you price the Flash Cart WITHOUT the console?" (ie. on it's own) ?

If so, £43 I reckon (£40 for me & £3 to help cover postage & paypal fees).
Would be sent 1st-class recorded in a good quality jiffy bag.

The flash-cart comes boxed & complete. You get the cart, the writer/linker, and the cable that connects the writer to your PC USB port.
The PC software manager has to be downloaded but I'll include it on a blank cd (along with some homebrew games).

I'll attempt to upload a pic or two this evening (thanks for the link).

[SIZE=2]I'll probably want to sell the flash-cart before I let the GBA go on it's own, but I reckon I'll sell it for about £25 + postage/paypal fees (that will include the carry case and unboxed games). If the flash cart sells I'll decide on & post a definate price.[/SIZE]

PS. It seems you can buy the EZ-Flash IV (4) for the GBA here for a less, or similar, price (depending on package):

Cheers fanpages, just worked it out myself.

Re - The EZ-Flash 4. This was available when I bought my cart but I did a lot of research (and asked for advice on forums) and still went with the EZ-Flash 3 despite it being more expensive, since it's considered the best cart for GBA/Micro use.

The EZ-Flash 4 was actually designed for the Nintendo DS and though it works on a GBA I believe that GBA game compatibilty isn't as good as the EZ-Flash 3, plus some games can lag/slowdown (it's DS support isn't too great apparently either - which is presumably why everyone buys the slightly more expensive but far better R4 cards).

Mine was designed specifically for the GBA (and basically has perfect compatability - I've probably tested about 200 commercial game roms and they've all worked fine).
Also, the EZ-Flash 3 has an on-board real-time clock (this is required to run certain games such as the Pokemon series). This feature is missing from the EZ Flash 4.

That's possibly why the EZ-Flash 3 is still very expensive to buy new.

It's 159 dollars + postage on this US site for example : http://www.gamersection.ca/product_info.php?cPath=30_33&products_id=233&osCsid=fcq5c6i1849l232tho2bfakvq4

Thanks for the history.

So, if I understand correctly, the EZ-Flash 3 you have does *not* work in the Slot-2 of the NDS (Lite)?

I (or rather my 3 kids) already have an EZ-Flash IV cartridge for their respective NDS Lite consoles, & we've never managed to get any GBA ROMs working.


If I were to use your EZ-Flash 3 kit then it would only work in a GBA (SP) console, then?

Sorry... I'm a Sony user... it's my kids who are the Nintendo fans.

Oh, this page seems to indicate that the EZ-Flash 3 (2Gbit) model will work with the NDS:

Note sure about the NDS Lite, though.

You can use mine in a DS to play GBA games by plugging it into the GBA slot on the DS (and removing any cart from the DS game slot).

Works perfectly, exactly as if you were using it in a GBA. A couple of months ago I let my sister borrow the cart for a week or so, so she could play a couple of the Mario Advance games I had on it on her DS.

Edit - just seen your last post.
It works on the Lite (that's what my sister's got).

OK, so it's 8gigabits = 1Gb in size, so can hold 100+ titles, plays in a GBA SP console & in an NDS Lite.

One last question...

Can you save your progress in-game (i.e. "save game" files) onto the cartridge? Is that supported?

Subject to your reply (as I can see it is now getting late... oops), I'll offer your asking price of £43 inclusive of PayPal fees & First Class Recorded Delivery for the boxed set of cartridge, writer/linker, PC-writer USB cable, and a CD with software manager & extras.

If you can save games, then let's go to "PM" to exchange details.

If you could contact me & I'll reply with my PayPal e-mail address, then please could you raise an invoice to me so I can be sure you are going to get the funds (and I don't mis-key your e-mail address & send to someone else)?

Thanks.

Yep, you can save games on it just like with original carts. Works like this :

When you reach a save-point within a game, the flash cart stores this information (but doesn't actually "write" a save file at this point).

When you've finished playing the game, you switch off the GBA/DS, then next time you switch it on, the cart remembers what game you played last, and automatically writes the save file for it, so next time you play the game you can carry on from the last in-game save point.

The reason is does it this way is to give you the option of whether you want to store the save file (if you don't for whatever reason, then you just hold down the left trigger button when you switch the console back on, and the save process is skipped).

Also, when transferring games to the cart, the PC software has an option to let you choose either "soft reset" or "instant save" (one or the other, "soft reset" is the default).

If you choose "instant save" then you can save your game at any point (rather than just the normal in-game save points at the end of levels etc.) by holding down a combination of buttons, then a different combination to re-load that save.
I believe this doesn't work for all games though and I've never tried it (been quite happy with the normal way of saving).

Anyway, I'll PM you tommorrow and we'll go from there (off to bed in a bit).

Thanks for raising the PayPal invoice.

The flash cart is now sold to fanpages.

This leaves the GBA with charger, the carry case, and the three games (the F-Zero game was missing which is why it's not shown in the photo, but I've found it now).

I'd like £28 for these including postage (or £27 if you're paying by a non-paypal method such as cheque, bank transfer etc.).

Not open to offers on this, sorry. If it doesn't go on here then I'll ebay it.

P.S. I've also found another game I misplaced a while back - Pac Man Collection.
This is boxed with instructions and I'll include it for an extra £4 if requested.
