    I have updated gateway to 2.1.
    It plays all 3ds roms just fine.

    Before I had a gateway I had the DSTWO for gba games etc.

    I have not tested the gba games, but how would I run gba games with the gateway? and is it only GBA? not GB or GBC?

    While I still prefer the DSTWO.. because I dont think gateway has realtimesave?

    Anyway i am curious to see how Golden sun 2 works on the Gateway.
    Since it was a bit laggy on the DSTWO.

    Blue card plays gba games,.gb/gbc too. Although the emulator is not as good as the dstwo. Next time read the stickies, they are there for a reason

    my dad works for nintendo.
    the 3ds card (the white and red one) doesnt support any emulation yet, you must use the ds flash cart (the blue gateway) for homebrew\ds\emulators

    Yes thats cute and all. but HOW does it play gba/gbc games etc. (Btw would it be possible to import savefiles from DSTWO for gateway use?)
    I put in the blue card with an SD with some games on it, but then I go where??

    Doesn't sound like you've added anything further to your micro SD card than what is required to launch the exploit. You might want to take a look at the following thread, which should be self explanatory once you get the files you need onto your micro SD: http://gbatemp.net/threads/icons-mu...014-4-19-by-3ds-blog-com.364978/#post-4975877

    I have 0 experience with this as I've not tried it myself yet.

    it'd be cool from gateway to find a trick to launch any game boy rom within the 3ds virtual console just like smea managed to achieve...

    I doubt the gateway card would run it better, have you tried a different emulator on the ds2?

    The GBA "emulator" (actually a hypervisor) for the DS, though a very impressive project, still has lots of compatibility issues and will not run nearly as well as the DSTwo emulator does.

    It's just a modified wood kernel I believe, so no not official. Even the official gateway blue card files are a modification of a different project.

    I downloaded it and installed, it says in readme
    load /__rpg/Apps/patch.pat as a patch,then choose a *.gba in any directory,press A until the game runs.

    I have golden sun 2 in my root.

    I press A continuesly all these weird texts

    BUt it fails...

    Just white screen

    + lots of text on bottom screen.. what went wrong?

    Probably far exceeds the hardware requirements for software emulation. Really your best option is to try a few different supercard GBA emulators. TempGBA works great for me.

    So you are saying golden sun 2 doesn't work with gateway?

    TempGBA is a DSTWO only emulator..?? does that work golden sun 2 better ?

    Just play around in settings. There are options to fix aspect ratios and zoom
