    As far as I know you have a Phat DS or DS Lite but you need a Slot 2 flash card as well. The Slot 1 Acekard will just let you boot from the Slot 2 device you have, kind of like a Passme device.

    If you have a DSi the simple answer is no.

    Sorry, couldn't resist [​IMG]

    But in all seriousness, no, it's not possible unless you have a slot-2 device.

    The only way to play GBA games from a slot-1 card (alone) is if you own an iPlayer. Otherwise you must have a slot-2 device.

    Is the iPlayer worth it though? I don't use homebrew much in all honesty but I'd get it just for the GBA games. Can it play games smoothly?

    Honestly, not really. If you have a DS phat or DSL, then slot 2 is WAAAAAAAAYYYYY better, as it is near perfect emulation. And as far as the emulation goes, its not anywhere near as good as a Slot 2 card.

    True. iPlayer (for GBA Emulation purposes) is only recommended to DSi, since there isn't another solution yet.

    you need a slot 2 cart like ez flash 3in1
    other tha n that if you dont have one you can get an iplayer
    but if you only have an acekard then:
    NO
