    Banging my head against a wall trying to configure this - not sure if it is possible.

    I have a M3 DSReal GBA Expansion, and the DSTwo. I can run GBA games fine by running GBA Exploader on it's own. But I'm trying to set it up to run from the gba.arg file, and add a GBA game to my favorites, so I can just start it from there instead of running GBA Exploader and searching for the game. As my current setup stands - when I select the GBA game from my favorites, it will run GBA Exploader, but doesn't just continue with the game. It essentially acts like a shortcut to Exploader.

    BTW - I CAN run NES games from Favorites with icon support and boxart, so have been using that as an example to try GBA Exploader.

    My main questions are :

    1. Has anyone accomplished this and if so, can you share your setup files.
    2. If not - Does anyone know specifically how GBA Exploader loads files so I could play around with the arguments in the gba.arg file.
    3. If it does work, has anyone been able to add icon and/or boxart support in favorites as well?

    My current setup :

    Directory:
    /-
    Emulators/ExpLoader.nds
    Emulators/ExpLoader.ini
    GBA : roms
    GBA_SAVE : saves
    GBA_SIGN : sgn

    gba.arg :
    GBA Exploder:
    "/Emulators/ExpLoader.nds"//file path
    [$PRGMPATH$,$FILEPATH$]//arguments are separated by commas
    ;

    ExpLoader.ini :
    #
    # GBA_ExpLoader.ini
    #

    SaveDir /GBA_SAVE
    SignDir /GBA_SIGN
    #No_MultiSave ! No Multi Save

    weird - I had another version of that file, but this one worked. Thanks for the link! I think I figured out the box art, now to get the icon changed and I should be good to go!
