    So I went to a local pawn shop and saw this in their selection of ds games a 3ds/ds flashcart.

    i know this mostly wont play 3ds games, but I think I mainly use it to play gba games on my N3ds, do you think it worth it , I cant return if it doesn't work for me.

    I have some knowledge of the flashcart b

    eh gba emulation isn't that great on basic ds flashcards.
    A hacked 3ds is far better but I guess that isn't an option.

    GBA games play at normal speed, but they're buggy. Sprites are glitched, cutscenes are choppy, maps scrolls oddly, text doesn't display right all the time, etc. It's just... buggy. Some games play better than others though.

    Unless you're on firmware 9.3 or newer, GBA VC injections are the way to go. Why would you even bother emulating when the 3DS has hardware support (i.e. dedicated CPUs) for GBA/DS/DSi?

    Yeah... thread title is a bit misleading. I thought there were more than ONE flashcart to select from. But since they only have the one, just get it. It looks pretty cheap. Just make sure you try it out first, right there and then (with the proper files and a few .nds games on a microSD card). That "-website-.cn" flashcart has a very high rate of DOA cases. Burned myself with one, so be careful.

    I really gotta read up on that VC injection shit. So far SNES emulator works fine but I haven't tried other emulators that are WIP.
