    Im on rxTools custom firmware and installed the new zelda and it plays great but it would be allot easier to just run them off my SD is there away to do that? and off topic how do you get Super Mario Advance 4 to run? I installed it but it says corrupted data?

    A game
    For GBA games to work in RxTools EmuNand, you need to install their cia file in both SysNand and EmuNand.

    Super Mario Advance 4 is a GBA game, as @Olmectron said you need to install it on sysNAND; works for me just fine.

    There does not appear to be a game called "Mario and Luigi"...

    Didn't say that, it's just easier to understand what you are saying. It wont look like a big rant which most people will just turn away from.

    is there a reason we need to install the gba games on both emunand and sysnand though in order for it to run? Also I used this guide on 3DS ISO to turn the gba game into a .cia file :D not sure if that link was ok mods pls remove it if its not k :)
