    These trimmed releases aren't cutting it. These dumpers gotta be testing their dumps out. Why release something that won't work on real hardware. Let alone an emu. Just like Zelda, and Super Mario Bros. These two releases have to be patched to 32 mbit aswell. It doesn't matter much these are just classics emulated on the GBA. Though if you're going to make the effort then atleast do it right.

    1. This game doesn't work on hardware.
    2. Your dream may have come true ages ago had you have just used a nes emulator.

    all of these nes port becomes ridiculous, i don't care of them, i already have a nes or an emulator to play them. The gba can do games technically as good as the one on the ps1 and saturn and the programmers still continue to port these games. Pirates are nice to dump them but it's useless as the stupid video. the gba is a console not a nes emulator or a portable media player.

    This is really weird since I have the japanese version of this game, I think in japanese is called Famicom Mini or something like that but the thing is that unlike the US version that one works on VBA perfectly [​IMG]

    Excitebike was the "speed" game back in the day.. I play this on my famicom every once in a while, nothing beats side-scrolling "fastness!" [​IMG]
