    Right don't know if this has been posted already but I am sooo confused.
    Going to buy a flashcard and i choose ACE3DS+ because it was by far the cheapest but i wanted a GBA emulator as i know DS2 has one so i was reading the specs on the website and it says there is none pre-installed then starts talking about a fast CPU and that it is better value and so on just trying to sell it.
    But would it it be possible to get an GBA emulator for ACE3DS+ and if not what is the difference between DS2. Something to do with CPU i read using Google but then it says ACE3DS has got a 3rd gen CPU and the DS2 has a 2nd gen CPU so wouldn't a GBA emulator work... :huh::cry: I need help....

    Ace3DS has NO cpu. DSTWO has the best GBA&SNES emulators available.

    Uh, no, the Ace has no dedicated CPU on it...

    The DSTwo is one of the only flash carts with a dedicated CPU for homebrew, and of those it's the only recommended one (and the fastest).

    The DSTwo has been really good for me for a lot of homebrew (and DS games) but by no means should you expect console-level quality. The GBA emulator revival is pretty damn good for many games but not to a satisfactory level for some popular games.
