    I can tell you why they are unplayable. The iPlayer is built off the Acekard firmware, but it has an additional processor, while Acekard doesn't. That's why.

    No is no dude. Accept it. Buy an EZ 3- in 1 Expansion pak if you really want to play GBA games.

    Yeah really...

    I mean, i'm too cheap to buy a ram expansion... But at least I understand that until I try to mod my R4 and destroy the thing on accident that it's impossible to play GBA games from slot 1 without an EZ 3-in-one (Piracy, ROMs, and Illegality) Expansion Pack or something.......... LOL

    Precisely, it's just physically impossible for this to happen, unless a new method of emulation is created, even then, it wouldn't be able to be ran at full speed, the cart lacks the functionalities of the iPlayer, especially, the key factor being the additional processor and extra on-board RAM.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    He probably stopped reading after the words "gba emulator" and didn't read the rest of it.

    LOL I did that with an alternate R4 firmware and when I finally read the rest later when I planned on installing it, it said 'may or may not require iPlayer and iPlayer firmware for this function'....... I WTf'd. XD To this day, I don't know why it would say that when it was firmware built specifically for the R4 to overwrite the official R4 firmware......
    Good thing it was little known and crap and only came with a .nds file and no instructions on how to install it.
