    So I decided to put some new gba Roms on my dstwo and some aren't functioning properly one is "Classis Nes Mario Bros" and the other is "Classic Nes Donkey Kong". Yes they are gba Roms, just ports.


    If anyone could help me figure out as to why they don't work, that would be great.


    Thanks!!

    the "Classic NES" gba games are different then normal gba games
    the might need an IPS path

    also
    emulators need to be coded to run the classic NES gba roms

    I can confirm that the Classic NES series tend to show problems everywhere, even on GBA-slot flash carts.

    On the compatibility list for DSTWO, the Classic NES series is shown to have issues.

    I've yet to play a single GBA emulator that would run the classic NES series games... Even the unlockable NES Metroid on Metroid: Zero Mission won't run.

    GBA NES games don't work well with emulators. Why not just use an NES emulator?

    Patches like these ones should solve the issues you're experiencing with Classic NES games on the GBA. You should be able to patch the games using these files with Lunar IPS or any other IPS patcher for that matter.

    you should just download an nes emulator. It has so much more functionality than the gba emulator.
    For other GBA games that won't work, you will mostly have to just deal with it because they won't work.

    Plus, they'll honestly look better. If I'm not mistaken, the GBA has nowhere NEAR The resolution to properly handle NES titles, so they look sorta "crammed".

    There is an Nes emulator for the dstwo?
    I've only heard of an Snes emulator.

    There is, but the DS doesn't have proper resolution either, so NES games look kinda weird.

    Is it a plugin on the actual dstwo site?

    I really don't remember. It's been so long since I've used it. I'm pretty sure it's on filetrip, though.

    You could make it into a plugin but any ds card that can run .nds files can run the nes emulator. I think it's called nesds. It is amazing. You can speed up games by pressing R or reverse the flow of time by pressing L. you can also use a savestate. I don't know if the resolution isn't correct but I think it looks pretty good.

    Just came across another issue.

    My Super Mario Bros 3 Gba rom is not working. It's not the nes classic.

    Are you using version 1.30 or 1.21 with game_config.txt?

    The compatibility page shows that Super Mario Advance 4 (GBA SMB3) is "a bit laggy" without game_config.txt.

    Also, have you tried the ROM in other emus? Like on a PC? Just to rule out a bad ROM?
