    I'm curious to know how accurate the compatability list for GBA roms on the DSTwo is?

    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/DSTWO_GBA_Emulator_Compatibility

    Do all the games in green work 100%, or are the still issues? How serious are these issues?

    Thanks for the response.

    most of the issues on the SC tended to be some mild slowdown, besides that the GBA emu on it is good stuff, the snes emu on the other hand i found a let down

    OK thanks. I guess I can deal with the SNES emu being more of a letdown because its not a handheld originally. Would be cool to have full emulaton access on the 3DS side of things. Ah well.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Maybe I've just been spoiled by my PSP, but the GBA emulator on the Supercard is worthless. Almost every game requires a frameskip of 2+ to run, and even then it's extremely choppy. Too bad team Supercard doesn't want to release the source code (even though they're supposed to under the GPL license). Oh well, what else can you expect from Chinese software pirates?

    Is it really that bad? Shame really. I noticed the GBA emulator on the Wii is pretty poor and that's crazy considering its the Wii. The games play really choppily.

    All GBA that I played on my DSTwo (I use it on my DSi, not on my 3DS) work the same way the list say, but, all o them, at some point become a bit slow, or lose a little of smoothness, but there is no big deal, it do not change the gaming experience.

    All you need to know is that using DSTwo for GBA emulation is a good decision.

    GBA games on my ds lite work great with my M3DS Real and M3 gba adapter, haven't noticed any issues with any of the games I play. Beats the DStwo's gba emulation, but I gotta use a DS lite is the only downfall.

    Because technically speaking you are not emulating the GBA. The ROM is being copied to the RAM on the cart and is being run via the GBA components in the DSlite.

    On a technical level, perhaps, but as far as the end user is concerned, no it's not.

    Both are sticking carts in a system and being able to play GBA games.

    Well, it seems that alot of people have gotten rid of their DS lite or only own a DSi or 3DS, so DStwo may be the only option available to play GBA games for now. But if you own a DS lite, then a slot 2 cart is the only way to go to play GBA games.
