    Hello GBAtemp!
    I am a new member and I am planning to buy a Acekard 2i.
    I just got some GBA roms and I wanna play some GBA on the Acekard. (I have a DS) could I play GBA on Acekard 2i?
    I just read that the Slot-1 cards can't play GBA. So I might ask my dad to get a Slot-2 Flashcart.
    Do you guys know any sites that's LEGIT, SAFE, and Cheap please post
    Thanks. :)

    Yes and no.
    You can emulate GBA games with this emulator
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/gba-emulator-for-ds-i-dsi-entry.281715/
    It's pretty good, but because it uses the DS's limited hardware, it is rather limiting.

    You can also buy a Slot-2 card like an EZ-Flash iv or 3-in-1 as well for GBA emulation, but they are becoming increasingly hard to find nowadays.

    So in short kinda.

    I suggest if you really want GBA emulation that works better and doesn't need extra hardware, go with Supercard DSTwo

    Well it was not a default feature. It is possible to a certain extent (via homebrew developed by one of our members) BUT there are lots of issues with compatibility etc iirc. So I'd suggest getting a Slot-2 flashcart still for GBA emulation purposes.

    If you are looking for a good site, I'd suggest either our sponsor, nds-card.com or looking through the list of suppliers listed in shoptemp. Try looking at past threads to see what some other past members have recommended :)

    I don't think there really are that many US shops, most of them claim to be in the US, but are actually still in China.
    The best sites I can recommend that have the best shipping and cost is;
    GBATemp's official Sponsor: http://nds-card.com/
    and
    http://www.zhuzhuchina.com/store/

    I have ordered from both of them several times in the past and they have extremely fast shipping (less in 2 weeks for the most part), great prices, and also great customer service.
