    I know this has probably been asked like 50 million times but it is a question that has been plagueing me for a while. I want to play games like Zoids Legacy and Riveria - The Promised Land and Yggdra Union: You Never Fight Alone and such, but I want to play it on my DS and not just on my VBA emulator that I have, so my question is this...

    How can I play Gameboy Advance roms on my Nintendo DS? Some speak of emulators and such but again I just want to know if it is at all possible. Please reply ASAP if possible. Thanks.

    Not with a slot-1 flashcard alone, if have a Cyclods or EZFlash you can get an EZ 3in1 to play most of your GBA games.
    Ask for additional details if necessary.

    If you want a slot-1 card use i-Player or the upcoming Supercard DSTWO

    Those are also viable options, I had forgotten the iPlayer and Supercard DSTWO. Thanks for having more presence of mind than I do [​IMG]!

    iPlayer's emulation still looks iffy to me. Can't really chug through games like Golden Sun too well.

    You'll just have to buy those cards to play it.

    eBay is a bad place to buy flashcarts.

    The sites that GBAtemp recommends are the best.

    I got a Super Card slot-2 flash cart and have had no trouble whatsoever. It's great.

    You do have to convert every ROM with a little conversion tool, but that's not hard. Virtually everything runs fine with no problems. Both my R4 and EZ-F5i boot up the slot-2 with no problem, and both access it easily for use with Opera and SNEmulDS.

    A slot-2 flash cart is well worth the investment. I feel there are more good, solid, quality games for the GBA than any other system ever.

    It's certainly enough to make me scratch a DSi off of my list.

    It can't. All Bunjalloo is is an Internet browser.
