    Hi,

    I've read I can use custom icons not only for nds homebrew, but also for any other filetype like gba roms aswell, it just hast to be renamed exactly as the rom, e.g. "Pokemon Emerald.gba.png" and since I couldn't find an icon pack, I just remembered, that the old Nintendo DS which could play GBA games was actually showing the icon of the GBA game that was inserted.

    So I was wondering if these icons were from the NDS or from the GBA cartridge itself?

    If it was from the cartridge, is there any possible way to extract this icon from the gba rom and convert it to png?

    Thanks in advance!

    It never showed icons for GBA games, because there aren't any.

    I could swear there was an icon exactly on the same spot at the left where the GBA cartridge is. (ignore the arrow)

    So where do I get some nice icons for every single one of my games now? :/
