    I think I'm going to be picking up a G6 soon and had two quick questions:

    1) Is it possible to launch GBA roms from the "My Card" menu? (Launching games in "GBA mode" with the cursor and all looks cumbersome)

    2) Is it possible to boot directly to the "My Card" menu?

    Thanks.

    1. No. The only use MyCard has concerning GBA ROMs is for use of NDS-GBA Linkage.
    2. No. The G6 always boots into the NDS Game Menu everytime.

    TheSpade, wow, thanks for the speedy reply and info!

    That's unfortunate; I really hate the looks of that GBA menu. [​IMG]

    You're welcome. I too agree that the GBA menu needs some work cosmetically. However, I have managed to become accustomed to it.

    The GBA launcher is totally crappy. It would be really nice if there was some way to run GBA ROMs from the NDS side. Not only because the interface is nicer, but it would also just be easier and more enjoyable in general. The Supercard can do it and it's one of the things I like better about the Supercard even though the G6 has a better interface in almost every other way.

    It doesn't seem like this would be impossible to get working. It might only require a loader/header file similar to what's needed to load DS homebrews. Though I don't really know what all the technical issues involved would be.

    Does anyone here know more about this? Specifically, if there's anything that would rule it out as a possibility.

    I thought it was impossible to run GBA games in NDS mode.
