    so now i have my gateway working with most of my games online, i was wondering, what if i wan tto play gba rom hacks or the normal roms, anyways i hit up youtube and i come across 2 videos 1 showing a dstwo using a gba emulator in ds mode or whatever its called, and the other used blue card from gateway to run a gba emulator... are these real? are they still around? if so where? and whom do i thank for creating such wonderfull homebrew if it exists?

    You should just be able to change the extension.

    They're DS-mode emulators so you'll have to be OK with less than perfect speed and accuracy. It's not a very powerful host platform for emulation.
    The DSTwo emu can at least make use of the CPU in the DSTwo cart for a speedup. Still far from perfect.

    If you really care for playing GBA games on a portable then you're still best off with a GBA/DS/DS lite and a EZ-Flash IV (or wait for Krikzz's upcoming GBA cart).

    Actually gbaemu4ds runs more or less fine, it's just that the developer got stuck on some bug he could not fix because of innacurate emulators.

    Ok nate. The emulator runs some games at full speed but a lot of games either don't work or have major graphical issues also it seems your starting to post every question you have as a new thread that is highly frowned upon in this forum from now on please use the noob paradise thread to ask your questions instead of making a new topic
