Flash carts are incapable of working for both GB/GBC and GBA games due to a quirk of the GBA hardware. You'll have to get two different ones for each group.

Does the 240p upgrade the image quality over s-video? This is amazing. Sorry if this has already been answered I just found out about this.

Spent a little time doing some research and you are indeed correct. The two choices seem to be a Everdrive-GB for GB/GBC which supports 32GB SDHC and a EZ Flash iV which supports GBA with 2GB MiniSD. However, looking into the EZ Flash iV more, it seems it not only supports GBA v.i hardware, but also supports GB/GBC/NES and SNES trough emulation! Seems to be a much better buy, don't you think? The only real downside is the 2GB max SD size.

Having only a modified D-Terminal cable for RGBHV, I can not comment on S-Video. However, since you were limited to 480i before and can now output 240p, I would say it should be a improvement.

I have a PAL GC with an RGB cable, gotta check this out for other games as well. I like pixels.

Thanks so much for this. I had almost given up hope!

Is there any possibility of fixing sd loading? With that I'd never need to open the disc drive again!

Thanks again!

I had heard about that as well, though I can't speak to the quality. If you want GBA games at all definitely get it first then decide if you need a dedicated cart for GB/GBC. 2GB will be perfectly fine unless you just want every game for it. You probably won't fill half of it if you dump every game you like for all 3 systems on it.

NTSC users got 480p, just doesn't look all that great.
