    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.

    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.
