Help on my FAQ

The other topic has reminded me about this.

Some of you may have read my 4in1 FAQ on GameFAQ's (I'm told it's on Lik-sang too). Now I had no plans to update, but I've recieved so many little corrections in my email that the time has come.

I want to make this the last one however, so I need your help. Can you guys think of anything I've missed? Overlooked? Anything I've not covered? Or just got wrong?

Any help is appricated.

Retailers then labeled this

new cart 5in1 because it now had separate modes for 1mb and 4mb, despite the

fact that the packaging said '4in1', and there were still only 4 components.
Actually, the cheat function, region lockout bypass, and save functions are all made possible by the same hardware. From a hardware standpoint the cart's really more like a 3-in-1: Flash, DRAM, and commslink.

-Atlas (1Meg Cart)
That's Atlus.

3.3 Does the cart use compression? I've heard this can corrupt saves...
The presence of compression alone won't corrupt saves on a 4-in-1, because the writing and compression process is completely under the control of the 4-in-1's firmware. Third-party direct save carts had problems because they were interacting with BIOS and game code and weren't 100% compatible with the official save cart.
