    Don't, use pocketnes or HVCA if you are on a GBA. If you are on a DS then use one of its emulators instead. You will end up with a superior experience as Nintendo did not do great emulation with this and the emulators also have extra features.

    If you absolutely must (and I refer back to the first word of this post) then there are patches. You can get them http://filetrip.net/gba-downloads/t...m-mini-fix-patches-filetrip-fixed-f26544.html
    They should be in IPS format, if you have not got an IPS patching tool then GBATA from http://www.no-intro.org/tools.htm will do it.

    Once more though an emulator is the superior option, so if you are thinking about the classic nes/famicom mini series then don't.

    Pocketnes
    Pocketnes is probably the main emulator of NES games that people like for the GBA.
    You can try the new tool for it if you want
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/release-ez-flash-iv-aio.370132/
    If that does not work then we can return to linking up guides, the EZ4 does do better if you give it a slightly modded version that kuwanger made. http://ezflash.sosuke.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=12660 has more there.

    HVCA is the other main emulator for NES games. For some things it did do better.

    If you absolutely must use the classic nes/famicom mini series and not an emulator (really just use the emulators) then you will need to patch them -- they are some of the few games on the GBA to have anti piracy. That link on filetrip is a group of patches for all the classic nes games and those famicom mini games that needed them.
    Find the right IPS file for the game you are using, load up the ROM in a IPS patcher, load up the patch, set the output and use it however you will. It should work on something already on your card and it should work if you have not patched the game with EZ4client yet. GBATA is a basic patcher but a nice tool to have if you are starting down the path of GBA emulation and flash cards.

    Again, there are 8 steps in the HVCA guide FAST6191 linked you to (http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/index.php?title=Hvca). Which step are you having problems with and what is the issue (what do you expect to happen, what actually happens for you)?

    Looking at his nick and how he replies I assume this guy is a troll and not interested in NES games in the slightest. Replying with honest help seems to be a complete waste of your time here.

    I'd say you're right, but there's always the old adage 'never attribute to malice that which can be equally explained by ignorance or stupidity'. :)
