    I am going in vacation soon on was going to get a new 3DS XL and was wondering what the best cart is for playing SNES, GB, GBC, GBA, DS games? Back in the day (DS was the last system
    I bought) I used to use an R4/Supercard for that stuff. I am guessing it won't work in the 3DS XL.

    So what is the best and easiest now a days and what is a good place to order from?

    If you still have your DSTWO, use that.

    I don't have a DSTWO. Just have the very first R4 and the first DS Supercard.

    And that will work with a new 3DS XL with the latest firmware?

    Yes, supercard team has been very good about releasing firmware updates when nintendo blocks it. It seems like nintendo may have given up blocking ds carts though, hasn't been done in a couple updates.

    So the Supercard DSTWO is the one to go with. Is there a good place online to get a cart quickly?

    Looks like you're in the United States. I'd recommend Real Hot Stuff.

    Sounds good.

    I saw there was something called Gateway that played 3DS. But know where does it say anything about SNES, GBA or GB/GGB. So I am guessing it doesn't play those and that is what I wanted.

    Gateway plays 3DS roms and it only works on 3DS firmware 4.1-4.5

    For SNES emulating DSTWO is the best card.

    Good luck. I have some finickey trouble with the engine on the emulator. Someone should post a performance guide for the cpu in the DS Two!

    Don't forget that there are alternate emulator plugins for the Supercard DSTWO that seem to be more optimized.

    SNES: CATSFC
    GBA: TEMPGBA
