    Hi there,

    I am currently using a DS with R4 and EZ 3 in 1 combo.
    Wondering if there is any way to link those to a gamecube for extended options available with some gamecube games like Metroid Prime or zelda windwaker etc..

    any options at all ?

    No, none at all.

    The very latest handheld hardware compatible with the GameCube is the GBA SP. The newer tiny GBA might have a cable available, but not that I'm aware of.

    The DS is completely different and multiplayer GBA games along with GameCube connectivity is not possible (again, only that I'm aware of, if I'm wrong then I'm not lying...)

    Best thing to do is to get a cheap GBA SP if you want to connect to your GameCube.

    GBA Micro doesn't have a cable available, but people have combined it with an original GBA -> GCN cable to get it to work.

    scandal_uk is right though. Multiplayer and GCN linking doesn't work at all with advance games on the DS.

    Thanks for the fast replies [​IMG]

    I guess i will pass. Those added fonctions in most games arent really worth it anyways.

    DS phat did originally support full GBA functionality in the prototype, if I remember correctly. However the EXT port to allow connectivity was removed from the final product. So the only option is to grab an orginal GBA or SP.
