    For some reason, I can't get the Classic NES Metroid rom working..

    I have tried many different versions, they always lock up the Supercard DSTwo AND the Supercard MiniSD..

    Everything extracts OK..

    Not sure what the problem is..

    I thought classic NES games had troubles running on most flashcards and such?

    The NES classics are bitchy games.

    No honestly theres a good chance you wont be able to get it to work. For some reason the NES classics are released with different programming than that of the rest of the GBA library. I dont know if there is a way to get them to act normally. You have a better chance getting the original NES ROM and emulating that instead.

    Yeah, general consensus, they're programming nightmares like the Golden Sun games except here you have the better alternative of just using the nes versions with a different emulator (nesDS).

    You're thinking of a NES game, this is the GBA NES game.

    Correct!

    Ahhh after a lot of confusion I understand now. Sorry to possibly confuse you more.

    I did test it out, and however I patch the game it just wont run on the Supercard MiniSD.
    Better yet, when I tested it on my DSi SC DSTWO It crashed the bottom screen and kicked me into the NDS loader. :wacko:

    I don't think the Classic NES games work on any GBA emulator.

    There are patches you can try using at http://gbatemp.net/topic/63195-ips-patches-for-classic-nes-series/

    But really, you'd be much better off emulating the NES rom with either NES DS or PocketNES to begin with

    Is NESDS compatible with the SuperCard DSTWO? I don't see why it wouldn't be, as I have it working on my Acekard2i. If it's classic Metroid you want to play, I'd suggest getting around it by trying to emulate the classic NES games in their original NES rom form. To put it simply, using .nes files on your card instead of .gba files.

    I love Metroid like many others, and it runs perfectly fine on the NESDS NES emulator. http://www.zophar.net/consoles/nds/nes/nesds.html :)

    The DSTwo natively supports NES roms. Just load up moonshell, go to the rom, and hit enter! Done. No need for NESDS with the SCDSTwo. Alternatively, you could use NESDS, it'll work.

    Well in that case, even better. Just using a different kind of rom, i.e. the NES roms in this case might actually work better. :)
