    Would it be possible to create an Action Replay code for a game to make it think it was a legit card? I guess this is kind of a stupid question, if it was possible, it would have been done by now...

    Middle of the ocean.
    If that was possible we wouldn't need firmware updates or cracks ever unless they did something for the gui then huh.

    Some games do have action replay AP fix codes don't they? Like GTA has a code to fix the save issue.

    Yeah, and Mario and Luigi RPG 3. And I only need a small code to bypass the anti-piracy, wasn't it supposed to be a very safe game?

    the better question is
    why don't flash cart makers make the flash cart to emulate the game as if it is original/real ?

    Wouldn't that take up a significant part of the card? The latest Lameboy Emulator is 218kb, how much space would an emulator two generations up take? and how would you go to the menu? A quick flick of the power slider? What about DSi, the system would just reset. Sorry, if this looks like a rant, it's not.

    I think he means make the ds think the flashcard was a real game, not get the ds to emulate a ds.
