Title: Link cable/trading
Post by: tomhughes on March 16, 2021, 03:08 PM
Regarding: EverDrive-GBA X5 Mini

Can you use the link cable between a GBA running EverDrive-GBA X5 Mini and a gamecube gameboy player running a genuine GBA cartridge?
Can you use the link cable between a GBA running EverDrive-GBA X5 Mini and a gamecube gameboy player running a genuine GB or GBC cartridge?

I want to use the link cable for trading on pokemon games. Was worried that the GB/GBC roms are run on an emulator and can't find any information about if this works with a link cable.

Many thanks,

Tom

Thanks Shadow,

OK so thats just the GB/GBC carts that wont work as their emulated. Do GBA games work ok with link cable between the X5 and an original cart?
I guess I'd have to buy EverDrive-GB X3 for GBC games.

For Pokemon Gold and Silver you might want the EDGB X7 for its RTC.
