    No, no, no, no and no. There is no GBA emulator for Slot-1 devices.

    God I'm glad that I have a M3CF and R4DS! I can play every piece of homebrew, every NDS game and every GBA game I want.

    even if they could make a gba emulator it would lag like crazy, in slot 2 flash cards they have ram in them to get rid of lag since, micro sd cards read data too slow to run at full speed.

    Geez! How cheap can you be? Get a slot2 card!

    Even if it was possible to emulate GBA in the DS slot, it would be stupid and unnecessary because the the DS natively supports GBA games in the......wait for it......GBA slot.

    You bought a slot1 card to pirate all your DS games instead of buying them, the least you could do is buy a slot2 card to pirate all the GBA games instead of buying them. Common freakin' sense people, come on!

    I'm surprised that more people don't aggressively and vehemently flame people that ask this question. They truly deserve to be flamed, if anyone does.

    Or just get a 3 in 1 to pair with your R4. Cheap, simple.

    Costello and shaunj66 should make when you sign up you have to write "GBA ROMS don't work on Slot-1's". I think we have something like that in regards for asking for ROMS.

    That didn't work, apparently. Some derpweed signed up an hour ago so that he could bump the NSMB release thread asking how to download the game.

    maybe making them write it down three times or something would be better. but each time differently worded, so that there is no copy+paste.

    ie.

    GBA ROMS don't work on slot one flashcarts
    GBA ROMS can't be emulated on slot one flashcarts
    GBA ROMS can only be played on a slot two flashcart

    ouch kinda agressive answer.

    the guy only asked if there's a gba emu for the nds. it MIGHT be an educated question as oposed to simply ask if you can play gba in the nds;)

    Or maybe we should just answer each one with links to 2 threads that explain it well:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=54762
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=50746&st=0
    (I sort-of wish those images weren't in the second one, they kind of hijack what was a good technical discussion on the subject [​IMG] )

    SaintJohn: Forgive the agressiveness, this question has been asked almost every single week since the R4 came out and the answer's really easy to find if people bother to look. It's also a sticky in the "flashing hardware" section. So it's starting to drive us a bit crazy [​IMG]

    The real question is... is it possible for a slot-2 device to somehow mimic GBA to GBA connections via wireless? Think about that... long and hard...
