    I just got an EZFlash V 3in1 to compliment my R4DS so I could load GBA roms. I've got GBA ExpLoader working just fine, but I can't find anyway to customize it. When I load a ROM, the GBA game has a frame around it with a windows-like toolbar at the top. It looks like I should be able to use those to maximize the game (get rid of the frame) and switch which DS screen the game plays on. I would assume if the game were on the touchscreen those could just be touched, but it is defaulting to the top screen. I can't figure out any way to customize which screen it plays on or if there is a way to get rid of the frame around the GBA game.

    Thanks for the help.

    You can't use the extra resolution for storing anything but a static border. You can't "maximize" the game screen or anything. The frame itself will be a bitmap somewhere on your card (don't know exactly where) which you can simply remove to get rid of the frame.

    Oooh. That frame is a mean trick, it makes it look like it has functionality! Okay, thanks.

    But is there a way to switch between screens? I think I prefer it on the top screen anyway, but just for reference..
