    Note: This thread is a mirror of a question in the "ASK!" section. Never showed up in recent activity so nobody responded.

    Does anyone know any Gameboy Advance wireless adapters that actually emulate the link cable instead of it's own separate thing?
    Basically I bought 2 official gba wireless adapters only to find out, they are not backwards compatible with link cable games therefore only about 4 games support it.
    What I'm wondering if there's a 3rd party wireless adapter that actually "emulates" itself as a link cable instead.

    I ended up finding these 2 adapters but they don't really explain it.

    Yeah I'm aware about that. What I'm wondering though is there a 3rd party one that supports all games?
    Also where are the reviews you found?
    All I can find is this thread: http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?topic=16113.0

    EDIT: Looks like the majesco cart is just an instant messenger which is pointless...

    The game has to support the wireless adaptor, the ones that did were ones that came out around the release of bit games and after only.

    GBA game developement had to include any functionality they wanted into the game. If a game came out prior to the such a feature, it wouldn't have such a feature if you automagically added the wireless adaptor.

    Alright, well I just bought a super long GBA link cable so it's all good now.
