flash advance card for gba romsGBA Flash Advance Linker

This was one of the first gba development units out there. Its is no loger produced and over the years many others have been released and this "Flash Linker" is not sold anymore. Please look at our other reviews to find something that suits you.

The design of the linker looks a lot like the old GBC rom GBX-changer. Linker unit uses 25pin male-male cable for the printer port, if you dont have one it will probably cost you ~10$ to get a new one. Power for the unit is supplied by 6 AAA batteries or a power supply.

As printer ports differ from one PC to another there are sped settings in the software to addjast for your. 4 in total. If the fastest doesnt work - decreas it and it will. Most of the early gba rom releases / dumps are made using Flash Advance Linker. Flash Writer software is complicated to say the least. It came as a fresh breath of ear when the LittleWriter was released. Later on Little Writer has outgrown FA cards and now supports a multitude of hardware including GBA X-ROM, XG-Flash, EZ-Flash etc. GBA flash linker is perfect for home development and 99% of all the demos in the first 2 years of The GB Advance were tested on this hardware.

FlashAdvance Cards - the firt version was well the first - and had problems with speed and the cartridge being oversized. In addicion to that memory mapping issues made it imposble to have mor than 4 gba roms on the 256M card at thesame time and the minimum size of the rom was limited. FA Pro and Turbo versions were released to fix the problem. These two new versionas are compatible with the Flash2Advance USB linker and software. The problem that these cards had were incompatibility with some of the new save game formats and lack of RealTime Clock so many games had to be patched to be playable.

- many games need patching

Review Flash Advance Linker Features:

Just like a Cradle for your Palm or other Handheld Computer, the Flash Advance Linker is plugged into the printer port of your PC. Once connected, it can simply send and receive game ROM data from or to the plugged in game or Flash Cartridge. With it you can extract game data from Gameboy Cartridges and save it on your PC as GBA ROMs or you can use it to send roms you download from the internet to Flash Advance Card and play them on Gameboy! To operate it requires 6 AAA batteries or any regular 9V adapter.

Writing GBA ROMs to Flash Advance Cards
The best thing about FAL is that it also lets you write Gameboy roms to Flash Advance Cards! Use the provided software to select ROM files from your harddrive, and write them through the printer or USB port connected Flash Advance Linker to the Flash Advance Cartridge. Its just like writing files to ReWritable CD with a CD-Recorder or sendingt MP3 files from PC to MP3 Player. You can even save multiple games into one single flash advanc card ! 64M card can hold up to 2 games, 128M - 4 games, 256M - 8 games, 512M - 16 games. Most Gameboy Advance games are 32Mbits or 64Mbits big (4 or 8 Mega Bytes on your PC)

Reading out GBA game ROMs
When your original Nintendo GBA game has been plugged in to the Flash Advance Linker, you can use Flash Advance Writer or LittleWriter software to read out gba rom data and save it to your local PC harddrive as a ROM file (*.GBA) Flash Advance Linker also lets you read out the savegame to store it in an extra file - you won't loose any game data, e.g. when the battery in your original GBA game gets empty.
