    I need to turn a NES rom into a GBA rom.
    I could do it with a SNES rom, and it worked.
    Can you help me go through the steps, and if it doesn't work, you can IM me and I can send you what I need to transform.
    Sorry.

    use PocketNES, it converts one or more NES roms into one .GBA file/rom .

    Heh, I've got EarthBound 0 on my cart too [​IMG]

    Make sure you create a folder name 'NES' (minus quote marks) in the Root Directory of your flashcart!

    Enjoy.

    Technically buying the cart to just have all three of them on one cart after the fantranslation is done.
    I'm getting a better cart later.

    EDIT: Is it possible to check if it will work in vba?
    Cause...I still can't do it.

    Download the most recent version of PocketNES. Download the PocketNES Menu Maker program. Put them both in the same folder and use the PocketNES Menu Maker to compile your *.nes files into a single output *.gba file.

    No idea what JPH is talking about with the "NES" folder on the root of your card. PocketNES doesn't use the filesystem, and even NES DS doesn't need any specific folder to be present.

    By the way, if you need help with SNES Advance or Snezziboy (the ways you turned an SNES game into a *.gba file) please let me know. I'm fairly advanced with running those two emulators.
