$16.25/ea if you get 10 of them. $14.25 shipped than $2 domestic shipping.

for someone like me who has no idea how to use one of these. how difficult is it to figure out and do? and would this hold a lot of games? is that what this is for? clearly I am uneducated. but intrigued.

Ali Express always leaves me with a small amount of trepidation.. but that's cheap.

Then again, Krikzz is (by all appearances) working on a GBA Everdrive, so I for one will be holding out for that.

Supercards suck. They read games directly from the SD card rather then transferring to faster RAM (like an Everdrive or most other GBA carts would) first. Unless somethings changed. It can lead to some pretty serious slowdowns. Get an EZ Flash IV or wait for the GBA Everdrive.

Question though is how more expensive will his device be over the ezflash stuff out there now? One thing is certain if it can handle emulators it would be just epic from a Gameboy Advance level of things because you throw Goomba and Goomba Color on there you get all the old games too from the guys who made PocketNES which would be a must as well along with PCEAdvance which can even take an ISO of stuff like Ys games and Dracula X.

Ya get what ya pay for, Krikzz's stuff is second to none.

Okay well I guess technically his Super Everdrive is second to one, the SD2SNES... but the rest of it is the best! :lol:

People have been saying that since it came out. Probably the same people that say emulators run 'perfect' on a PSP, or, SNES is 'great' on a Raspbery Pi. You're either not picky (don't notice) or haven't played the games that really show it yet. Been years since its been a relevant cart so i cant remember which ones they are. IIRC FF5 is a good example.. runs at 80% speed. Lots of games just feel like your playing them on an emulator with frame skipping on. A lot of people wouldn't notice it.

EDIT: I should also say that i've never owned one. Back then I did the research and never felt like it was worth buying. I only bought a few of the 'real' flash carts.
