    Hi Guys ,
    I just wanted to ask if there is a possible way to run gba games on 3ds
    I have ace3ds flashcart for ds games but the gba4ds emulator is crap
    I want to play DBZ - buu's fury on it
    Is there any gba only flashcart for it? (plz don't say DSTWO)

    Your options are gba4ds or DSTwo.

    It's just the way it is.

    Have you thought about just simply buying a second-hand GBA and an appropriate kit for it?

    As far as emulating GBA on a DS, the DStwo and TempGBA is by far the most accurate way to go, even if its cheat engine is fundamentally broken.

    wouldnt the real gba and the kit cost must more than just getting a dstwo?
    Yes true the cheat system is broken :/ but still!
    I got a dstwo for that reason only and it works great even pretty much every snes game too :)

    Depressingly after playing it on both a 3DS XL and DSi XL, I definitely prefer the DSi XL for running the DStwo on. All the benefits of a larger screen than a GBA was ever given officially, but also none of the rather poor smoothing that the 3DS does for DS games being applied to it.

    Not to mention that a real GBA(SP) and kit also means none of the slowdowns or emulation quirks anymore, since then you're running on the real, intended hardware.

    Currently the only way to emulate the GBA on the 3DS is to use a DSTwo or gba4ds, but seeing that they're both DS-Mode and the DS was hardly a beast when it came to computing power, effects may be hit and miss. ;)

    I used to use a DSTwo then I got a used GBA SP and EZ-Flash iV and it is so much better performance-wise. Even GBA Emulated on PSP was better than trying to make it work on DS.

    The GBA emulator on PSP was A-MAZING! Did you know that the developer of GPSP is the same guy who created a full-speed DS emulator for Android? His projects consist of things people said couldn't be done, like a full-speed GBA emulator on PSP, and a full-speed DS emulator on Android!

    I hope he jumps into the 3DS scene once it's not total trash.
