    I try to load GBA VC games with Luma3DS but games won't start and I am stuck on a black screen.

    Tried with 5 GBA games and none work

    You have to install them to both emuNAND and sysNAND.

    Oh. That's weird. My GBA games work fine. What are your Luma settings?

    And you're installing them with FBI? Make sure that's up-to-date.

    That's really strange. Maybe try to download them from someplace else?

    Luma3DS does it's own patching on the fly, so if you ever played GBA VC with rxtools in the past you need to install a clean version of the AGB_FIRM cia.

    possible:

    maybe your SD card is formatted in clusters which have problems with some things (64k clusters tend to break gba vc?)
    I've read many things about people who experience issues when they don't format their SD with 32k clusters, though if that's not your case, then I have no idea.
