    The r4i cannot play gba games without a Slot-2 Expansion Card like the EWIN Expansion Pack or the EZ Flash 3-in-1.

    However, as the dsi LACKS the Slot-2 (unlike the ds and ds lite of course), therefore it cannot be done on a dsi.

    Well, dice, that's the case atm, it might change depending on if Nintendo decides to rerelease GBA games on the DSi Shop.

    I don't know why you can't spell correctly and use correct grammar. [​IMG]
    No offense though.
    Some people just live off of the R4 name, that's why.

    I'm not doubting that but I could also say that the planet will will implode upon itself on Friday, and so tell him not to bother waiting for a solution to his question to come about. [​IMG]

    Well, how much did you pay for it?
    The Acekard 2i and the EZVi (though the AK2i is crap according to Normmatt) are both less than $20.

    what am i not understanding. i now know that i just bought some phony stuff...the only good thing is, it works like any other flashcart in every way. the website i bought it off of is a legit website from what i can see. if you don't believe me check it yourself..

    nxpgame.com

    if i have to delete that website because of security reasons i will.
