    With the supercard dsonei is it possible to play GBA games on the DSi?
    Does the DSi have the hardware to play those games, or can I download like a modified visual boy onto the flash cart, and if it doesn't exsist is it at all possible?

    *sigh* it's like you didn't even TRY to search...

    No, you cannot run GBA games on the DSi at all with any device. We don't know yet if the DSi still contains the GBA hardware inside it, and perhaps if it does then sometime in the distant future we'll be able to run GBA games on that. But nothing now. And no, there's no port of VBA to the DS or DSi, simply because the DS isn't nearly powerful enough to emulate the GBA in software. Someone could port it, sure, but it would run at 1 fps, if that. The DSi isn't enough of a hardware upgrade to make it all that much more feasible, and to top it off we still don't have access to any DSi-specific hardware yet, meaning that we're still limited to exactly what the original DS had.

    That's the reason why I still have my old GBA and my DSL [​IMG]
