    No, you'll have to get the DSTWO instead.

    The only way to do GBA on the Acekard 2 is with a slot-2 expansion, which can't be used on the DSi as it lacks the slot.

    Ummm. No. Without a Slot-2 the AK2i can't emulate GBA games. If you want GBA games on a DSi, I suggest the Supercard DSTwo. NO$GBA is a full-blown PC emulator, how would you ever be able to get it to run on an AK2i or even a DSTwo?

    Without a slot 2 there's no way to run GBA games on an Acekard. iPlayer and DSTWO only can do it because they have an extra powerful CPU on the cartridge itself. NO$GBA and VBA are PC applications, and you can't run a .exe on a DS. (Even if I'm wrong about that, PC emulators can't work on a DS for the same reason any other GBA emulator can't, if I'm not mistaken)

    Compatibility is better with a acekard (w/akAIO) than an iPlayer or SuperCardDS2. [​IMG] [​IMG]
