    Hey guys, in terms of playing GBA games, whats the best way?


    I don't know whether to buy a DS Lite+ Flash Cart.. which flash cart to get?

    or to buy a device which can emulate them? I want to play stuff like Golden Sun so pretty intense for a small device (example, PSP can't do it, DSTWO still emulates it slow).

    Any suggestions?

    They go for like £50 (lower if you can get a good bid) on eBay. It can play Golden Sun, I don't know why you think it can't?

    I must've not played Golden Sun on my PSP then.

    Are you being sarcastic? You could be correct but I've googled around and most people say golden sun doesn't reach full speed on the PSP :(

    behind a keyboard or a gamepad
    those posts are outdated, gpSP Kai 3.5 mod(I think that's the lastest version) can emulate Golden Sun no problem, and so does TempGBA on the DSTwo.

    Now you are talking about the best way to play GBA. to achieve that you better get a EZ-Flash IV and a GBA SP AGS-101 or GB Micro or a modded classic GBA with backlight.

    Hmmm are there any good GBA PC emulators which upscale/sharpen/smooth the graphics or improve them so they're playable on a TV?

    Have you tried TempGBA on a DSTWO, or TempGBA4PSP on, well, a psp? They run Golden Sun games better, and I think they weren't made until some time after that thread you linked to.

    If you're looking to play the games on the go, then the best solution would be an AGS-101 with an EZ4. If you simply want to play the games, then you could hook up a computer to a TV, hook a controller to the computer and play the game with the right filters and resolutions. I once tried emulating SNES games this way and they looked just fine, so I can't see why GBA games wouldn't.

    Hmmm I do have a GB SP and GBA from when I was a kid. However the odds of finding it seem pretty low.
