    People make Pokemon hacks like Pink and Orange. But GBA games in general cannot be played on an Acekard 2i without an ez flash which I do not own.

    Is it possible to clone a GBA rom and convert it to a .nds so it can run on a Flashcard like An Acekard 2i or R4 SDHC?

    Exactly. Just get someone to make a hack which is the exact same but .nds style. Not just converting with NDStation...

    In this case...no. Because we can't get a source code of the gba file. Nintendo ambassador games can be played because
    they have the source code of the file.

    This... What?.... no...

    First of all, Nintendo ambassador games run in 3DS mode, AceKard runs in DS mode.
    They run in an emulator as well.

    No, there is no way to 'convert' a gba game to an nds game. People asked this all the time when the R4 came out, and the answer is still no.

    So for your idea somebody would need to... recreate the entire game. Good luck finding somebody to do that. :P

    somewhere
    You can't just turn a gba game into a ds game.
    If you wanted to take the effort to port a gba game to ds, you might as well use that time to save up some money for a supercard dstwo. Better yet just get a slot 2 card.
    It's not as simple as just hacking a Rom.
    I wont say its impossible since some say nothing's impossible, but for all the effort it would take to port games, it wouldn't be worth it.

    I will make myself happy and explain this as simple as hell I can
    GBA ROM - pile of sand, dust, poppy seed, flour, crumbs &c.
    NDS ROM - arranged clothes segregated to shelves and marked alphabetically

    Try to convert this mixed pile of "whatever" to arranged clothes and You are my new god which I will pray till my death

    DS CAN'T run GBA emulator, DSi CAN and only with proper flashcard which runs FULL DSi mode like Cyclo Evo if I'm not mistaken and DSTwo it seems
    Another way? PC, Android Phone, Wii...

    ok so
    1.open the command line and locate your .gba rom.
    2. type /covert *the filename of your rom without the stars* .nds container
    3. hit enter and make sure you have set a destination for your newly converter rom.

    Ok seriously from what i understand then DSi GBA thing is for homebrew and other things. I wasnt aware its a full fledge GBA emu.
    The best thing you can do is probably pony up and get a DS2 or something with GBA emulation properties.
