    See here: http://forum.supercard.sc/thread-6042-1-1.html

    It is currently unplayable.

    Edit: As for why? Search around. Perhaps it's too resource intensive. Isn't it a port anyway?

    Why would you WANT to play the GBA EWJs?

    They're some of the most butchered ports of all time.

    Try the .smc and /gen/.bin/.smd versions with NDSSFC, SnemulDS (.smc runs in that for sure) and JenesisDS (.gen/.bin/.smd runs in that for sure)

    Yeah, i hate to be unhelpful here, but EWJ GBA is a horribly bad and botched port. There are missing animations everywhere, choppy graphics, horrid sound effects, and worst of all, mangled physics that ruin any of the fun gameplay the original had. You can include these complaints for the even worse port of the sequel. Do yourself a favor- get JenesisDS (or snemulds, but jenesisds plays it better) and the original rom and play it. It works almost perfectly in either emulator and the original game is far far superior.

    Sorry for not helping you to get the GBA game to work, but in this case, it's probably better than a horrible game just doesn't load.

    Well sure, if you don't mind playing on a console, i kind of figure he wants it on DS... I hear the HD versions are missing some levels from the previous best version, Special Edition on Sega CD. So i'd probably say Sega CD is the best version of the game if you want all the content. [​IMG]
