    Hi!

    Why does the M3 interface list gba games together with nds games when in nds mode? The gba games cannot be launched from nds mode, so what is the point of listing them? It would be extremely easy to filter out gba games in the nds game listing. When in gba mode, I only see gba games and no nds games. Why does this not work the other way??

    You can see gba files in nds mode,because gba/nds linkage function need gba games.

    Yup, it was there before the gba/nds linkage function. But even if it now is used for gba/nds linkage, it should be easy to provide an option in the M3 settings to hide all gba games, for us that don't need the linkage function.

    As in hide *.gba? What about *.ds.gba? Does the M3 distinguish them?
