    Hi there! First time poster, somewhat of a lurker hoping that someone might help me out.

    As title states, I got myself a Dual Core card from http://www.r43ds.org/products/R4-3DS-Dual-Core.html . I've been trying to get it working with GBA games and a DS game but none of them work. I downloaded the firmware from http://www.r43ds.org/pages/R4-3DS-Dual-Core-2015-Firmware.html and I got the GBA emulator working, but no the rom (emulator downloaded from http://www.r43ds.org/pages/3DS-Homebrew.html). For the DS game, it tried to create a save file, it got stuck so I restarted, and now when I try to start that game it just freezes. For the GBA games, I get an error on the last step that looks like this:

    Hopefully someone can help me fix this problem, else I'm gonna be even more pissed than the fact that it took them two months to ship and for it to arrive.

    I do not see it on the features list, so I highly doubt that your cart can do GBA roms. What emulator do GBA games use?

    The only DS flashcart that will emulate GBA well is the DSTwo. If you do get it to work on your R4, chances are it won't be playable.

    If you have CFW you can install GBA games in .cia form to your home menu to play.

    Thank you so much! Downloaded that version and now it's working again!

    But indeed, like Quantumcat said, emulator is kinda shit and laggy. Even the Homebrew for 10.2 is better than this one but oh well, I mostly got this card for the DS games.
