    So I ordered an iPlayer (Actually, I ordered it in December but it didn't ship until yesterday for some reason…)

    Anyway, when I get it, what will I have to do to get it working to play GBA games?

    I already have an Acekard 2i. Can I use the same microSD card, or will I have to get a new one for the iPlayer? Does the microSD card have to be formatted a different way?

    What should I download? Should I use any different software other than what's on the iPlayer when I get it? Will I have to download a new version of the OS or something? And finally, where can I download the emulator for it, and where do I put it once I download it?

    Sorry for all these questions… Thanks!

    You download everything from the iPlayer web site. You can share the microSD with the Acekard.

    ALSO, I want to point out something that happened to me. After saving games, go BACK TO THE DS iPLAYER MENU BEFORE SHUTTING OFF THE DS to actually keep the save files. for some reason if you save and turn it off, it doesnt recognize the save. maybe im just doing it wrong, or maybe i need to SRAM Patch the GBA files. Not exactly sure.

    So does the card need to be formatted a certain way? Or can I just load up the OS, ROMs, and the emulator on my current Acekard card and just start playing as soon as I get the iPlayer?

    Basically you download the iPlayer stuff for 1.4U (if you have a DSi with 1.4, but get it anyway cuz its latest version) off of their website [DS iPlayer firmware], and then download GBADSi (GBA DSi) and follow the instructions there. Place the ROMs in the gamepack folder and .sav's in the gamerts folder. then you are all set. Hope this helps, and good luck!
