    First off Visual Boy advance is a emulator invented to emulate the Game Boy Advance Video game system on a PC by using Game Boy Advance roms.

    Now I dont have my ds flascart yet but I was wondering is it possible to play GBA Visual boy advance roms on a supercard DSTWO?Or does DSTWO use a different type of rom?

    ...I'm lost at why you would think they use different rom types when both VBA and the DSTWO's GBA are both emulators...In any case, yes it will work on the DSTWO, though I have heard that it's GBA emulation isn't perfect, its only with the lesser known GBA games that have some problems.

    DSTwo uses a GBA emulator which is based on VBA.

    VBA uses .gba roms, and the gba emulator also uses .gba roms >_>

    Also, good news, you can leave the roms compressed in zip/rar files and the DSTWO will still play them. This means you can save a LOT of space on your microSD card.
