    I realize its probably as straightforward as it can get, but would someone mind explaining me how to go about getting NES to work on the g6?

    Thanks in advance

    You need an emulator, like nesterDS, and of course, a rom

    I have my roms ready, and I was under the impression the G6 had a built in emulator, just wasnt sure if I just write them on in the GBA menu or what

    The only reason I ask is becuase the g6 cant be detected on my computer so I have to use someone elses to add games.. Makes it hard to fool around with it

    Well the way I got my NES roms going on my card was is that I used Pocketnes to make a ".gba" file than I flashed it to my card as a gameboy advance rom. I'm not sure if there is any other way to do so but that's the way I did it. I don't have any links but if you google "pocketnes" I'm sure you'll find it.

    The G6 does indeed have built-in emulators. Just copy them to the cart as if they were GBA games. (through the G6 software of course)

    You might as well use the NES emulator that's actually written for the DS. It's full screen and uses the touchscreen for options and selecting your game and such.

    There's a few different versions, but the one that seems to be the most advanced is the "WIP" version (though it's the only one I've tried actually, so I don't know how the others are).

    Go here:
    nesDS WIP

    That download comes with everything you should need to get it working. Just transfer the ds.gba file created over to your G6 using Explorer and then go through the MyCard menu on the G6 to start the game(s).


    ...word is bondage...

    Ahh, through the GBA menu.. This works! Thanks!

    I think Ill try this other emu next, when I browse the games in the gba menu they all have the same name
