Battery: CR1220 (should last 2-3 years). If you wish you can replace it with a larger battery (insulate it from the other components)
The maximum game size is 16MB as the way to access the EEPROM is to address higher than 16MB.
The PCB finish is ENIG, Gold fingers (on the edge connector) with a 45 degree bevel to give the maximum life for insertion/removal of the cartridge.
When you place an order, if you would like the flash cart to be programmed with a ROM, you need to supply it to us via email (you can reply to your order notification). It will be tested for 20-30 seconds on a Gameboy Advance to ensure it works, if it doesn’t work, we’ll contact you. If you don’t specify a ROM, it will be loaded with the “Graveblood Pre Pre Pre Alpha” Game Demo.
How to calibrate the Solar sensor
In games that support solar sensor calibration (remember to save afterwards to keep the calibration):
– Indoors (at night): Hold it about 2 metres away from a light source so that the solar gauge will only activate when close to the light source
– Outdoors: Cover the solar sensor with your hand as normal
EEPROM saving, Solar sensor and RTC in these games have been tested to work:
- Boktai (USA/Europe)
- Boktai 2 (USA/Europe)
- Boktai 3 (Japan)
- Boktai 3 (Japan with English translation hack, no solar patch required)
If your game isn’t here, send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the ROM file and ask us to test it.
