    Please correct me if Im wrong (as Im not an emulation expert), but couldn't emulator developers take advantage of the browser ram pack (or ez flash slot 2)? Couldn't they use them to make their emulators work better?

    The newest version of SnemulDS uses the RAM pack.

    sure

    ram isn't usually the big issue in emulation tho, it's raw cpu power

    Oh cool,
    never knew that snemul uses the ram pack. Apparently I have an old version of the emulator, its v5 or somethin(maybe 0.5, dunno cuz I forgot)

    Yea, the 0.6 version takes into account the RAM pack, it works fairly well but bugs some games like Chrono Trigger.

    Any Slot-2 with extra RAM.

    The EZFlash 3in1 is the obvious choice, but The EZ4, some Supercards and Even the official Opera RAM are supported! It also supports some I haven't mentioned....

    Quake 2 DS uses it and there is an considerable amount of difference when there is extra RAM.
