Went through another chunk last week that I've not found time to post about yet.

However: Japanese release of Wario Land 3 GBC has selectable English, which is nice as a decent EUR copy goes for a tenner compared to the sub quid on YHJ

Got asked what difference using a NES dpad in a DMG made.

The NES dpad is far less sloppy. It's a little taller too, and less concave. It's a vast improvement! I only tried it for aesthetics, but it's noticeably better overall.

As for the buttons, not much difference however I think I prefer them. They're shorter and concave, which makes them feel more responsive.

Got myself a GB Power cart. Official Nintendo flash cart. No idea how to manipulate the contents. It has Wario Land on it from factory.

Nice work.

The Power Cart sounds interesting.

Swapped the white backlight in my DMG Pocket for a green one. Much better, feels correct now.
