    I'm kinda following the whole DSLite cart trend on the board and read there are 2 versions of G6 Lite. One without and one with GBA compatibility. The question is: how good is it? Wich games work 100%, wich don't? does Goomba work without too much trouble? I heard G6 Lite with GBA runs GBA games slowly? What the heck? And it has great DS compatibility, that's really strange [​IMG] Can someone clarify this?
    Does castlevania work? What about zelda? Etc.

    Yust to confirm: homebrew works completely, right? [​IMG] (scummvm etc)

    Thank you very much!

    Jefklak, i've been looking for similar answers too. Here's what i found from somewhere else:


    On slowdown:
    From what I am gathering it seems the g6 will run gba games okay if there is no RTS patch, and there won't be any slowdowns.
    I am also curious what other people think about the g6 lite, i would really like to see a review for it when it comes out.

    Hm, slowdowns, I don't like 'em [​IMG]
    But you only need a patch with a game that uses the realtime clock, right?
    So goomba, zelda, whatever is unaffected (only pokemon and such)

    thanks for the links!
    Edit: shit, i'm confusing RTC with RTS (real time saves)
    Damn! that sucks, wario land 4 does not work with regular G6?
    We'll have to wait for the G6 Lite review I guess

    I assume main reason people down the G6's GBA compatibility is not because of the compatability at all. But the fact that it takes a little while to load each game.. i think i broke it down to liek 10 sec per 128 megabits.. could be mistaken. However this is only a problem with GBA games not NDS. And since you'd be running the emulator in NDS mode it would not be affected by the real time save or loading.
    all in all i really don't think it's that big of a deal.
    But everyone should just hold off and wait till the G6 Lite is actually released before asking questions about compatibility since for all we know it could be slighty different.
