    Is there a flashcard that supports bluetooth and is there a hack for English Of The Dead that can make it detect and use things it isn't supposed to like with the ds browser and the extension cartridge? I want to play English Of The Dead on a ds with a keyboard instead of the onscren bullshit because it isn't fun that way. Thanks.

    edit- I know someone with the Pokemon keyboard if that makes a difference

    No. There aren't flashcard with bluetooth support because only one game uses it and it's Pokemon Typing Adventure.

    I guess you could hack something to use the guitar hero controller somewhat readily, or the taito paddle maybe, but neither have anything close to a full keyboard... that said the guitar hero thing could be close to one of those one handed keyboards that some people like and that could be amusing.

    After that you are likely developing custom hardware. The GBA keyboard if you go looking worked on the serial port which does not exist on the DS ( http://www.brolinembedded.se/projects/keyboard/ if you are curious).
    Likewise the DSserial https://web.archive.org/web/20061119151040/http://www.natrium42.com/projects/serial.html worked on the DS slot so you would either have to remake it for the GBA slot (doable enough I guess) or buy a GBA slot DS flash cart and patch the game to work on that, before patching to speak to the serial stuff. I don't know if you would be able to wire up something with one of those blaze 3 in 1 things but that might be an option, still have to hack the game though.

    Going the insane route if there is a SD card with onboard wifi you might get something done, somehow and likely with a great difficulty. I am not sure if the latency would be workable here either. On top of that I am not sure what goes for the microSD side of things here but you might at least be able to break out the port if you had to. Short of building your own GBA slot device then contriving some means to have the pokemon bluetooth thing supported is going to be even worse.
