    I have the NiGHTS into Dreams...: Score Attack minigame file, which was a demo you could download from PSO on GameCube,
    but it's .mb so I can't emulate it on my Wii (or flashcart for that matter).

    I've heard that you can convert .mb to .gba, but I can't seem to find anything on how to do it. Any of you know?
    It's worth noting that I'm on a mac... if there are no solutions for mac users, maybe one of you would be willing to take my file and make it .gba?

    Thank you for your time [​IMG]

    edit: MISSION COMPLETE!
    But I didn't do it... so I still don't know how to do it, for all those future downloadable GBA demos.

    There are a couple of methods, there's mb2gba which is just a loader you append to individual multiboot ROMs, or there's Multiboot Menu, which is aimed at combining multiple .mbs into a single GBA with a menu.

    Multiboot Menu is probably Windows-only, but you can easily do MB2GBA yourself. Open a terminal on your Mac and combine "mb2gba.gba" and "YourFileHere.mb" into a new file. You can do this using the Unix "cat" command in the following format:

    cat mb2gba.gba TheMultibootFile.mb > NewFile.gba

    I inputted that line, customised to my filenames, and this was what came up:

    "cat: mb2gba.gba: No such file or directory
    cat: nights.mb: No such file or directory"

    Cool. So how do I do this? ^^;
