    Do you install these the same way with fbi? I've got a few NES, GBC, GBA, and Sega Genesis games i would like to play in cia format. do you install these the same way with fbi?

    I am running rxtools with tubehax if that that matters on the latest version. emunand updated to the latest version. sysnand and emunand are unlinked

    For the most part yes.

    The exception is GBA games, they have to be installed both sysnand and emunand if you want to play them in emunand. (Destination always set to SD).

    And if you ever get interested in DSiware I'll let you know that they only work in sysnand (Destination NAND).

    Everything else works in emunand as normal.

    can you explain how to install on both sysnand and emunand using fbi? do i have to first go on my emunand install it with fbi? then boot into my sysnand then install it? can I do it all from emunand? if not that sounds so complicated and roundabout. (might just stick with my original ds lite)

    disware seems easy. i guess all other systems is quick and easy except gba.

    You have to boot into sysnand and install it, then boot into emunand and install it there too.

    Or just install them in sysnand and play them from there.

    Nothing particularly complicated, and no you can't do it from emunand alone.
