International Customers: Please scroll way down and read the “International Shipping Note” below.

Use the WS Flash Masta USB to upload files from your computer to the cartridge via built-in micro USB and play them on your WonderSwan, WonderSwan Color, or SwanCrystal console.

Due to variations in 3D printing, the shell or dust cover that you receive may not look exactly like the photos shown here.

We are currently offering a “Repaired PCB” option at a reduced price.  These PCBs have a minor repair wire applied to them.  They function the same, but you may need to exercise extra caution (to not damage the wire) if you intend to open the shell for any reason.

Please read the full description for important information.

Description

International Shipping Note:  We have noticed that the “Limited Tracking First Class” option is taking much longer (like maybe 6+ weeks sometimes) in transit lately. We have had an increased number of questions from people that use this option and are wondering where their package is.  The UPS shipping option is often arriving in 2-5 business days, if you’re concerned about speed.

The WS Flash Masta USB cartridge will accept 16 ROM files (one of which will likely be a menu) via USB and allow you to play them on your WonderSwan, WonderSwan Color, or SwanCrystal game console.

To upload ROMs to the cartridge, use the software found at http://www.flashmasta.com/software-downloads/. Most users will want to flash a ROM-selector menu to the first slot. This will allow you to select the other slots upon bootup.

Look closely at the product photo. That is what you will receive. This cartridge currently comes in a plastic shell, but it does not have a “Flash Masta” sticker. It may or may not come with a pre-attached sticker from an official game.

You can read more about this version (and previous versions) of the cartridge at our Wonderswan Flash Masta Cartridge forum.

As far as functionality goes, there are some items to be aware of. Not all ROMs work 100%. If you want to know more about what ROMs have problems, please see this forum thread about the v5.1 WS Flash Masta USB. Notice that some ROMs require a patch to work properly while a small percentage just fail to run. If any of the ROMs mentioned are of particular interest to you, I suggest that you post in that thread to see if anyone can provide more information.

Another item to make note of is that while the ROM area of the cartridge has 16 slots, the SRAM (gamesave) area does not have separate slots. This means that you can select different slots, but they will share the SRAM area. A game selection may overwrite other slot’s savegame data. Currently, playing a game may interfere with another slot’s savegame information. This may or may not be changed in the future.
