    Hello,

    I've found a Pro Action Replay for DSi at a local store on clearance for a great price.

    I'm just wondering if it would be of any use to me?

    I've Googled around a bit and it looks like you can run NES, GBA, SNES, and Genesis ROMs from it. I'm just unable to find confirmation from a reliable source.

    Is that at all possible to do? I'd be running it on a 3DS XL.

    Thanks!

    lol no u cant use emulators

    you can use it to bypass the blocks on a flashcard tho

    as long as it updates, not sure if it can or not, then its good

    to use emulators you need a flashcard that can load them, for GBA & Snes you would need a DStwo
    but as thats not blocked then theres not need for it

    but if you wanted to use an Old r4 on the 3DS then you could as long as the Action Replay can update

    this is the updatable one

    Right on, alright. Like I said, I couldn't confirm it.

    This is the video I was going by:

    Doesn't look like it will be of any use to me at all then.

    Thanks!

    if your following videos on youtube, your gonna have a bad time

    and that video on says, Genesis Games, NES and Snes
    not GBA, as the only card that can do that well is the DSTwo
    Snes is only possible at pretty much full speed on DStwo as well
    the Snes emualtor link in that video didnt run games no where near full speed, it would be constantly jaggered

    i dont have one so couldn't confirm it not running NES and Genesis games but ive never heard of it doing so

    as the card istelf is just a bootloader and DS Slot loader i cant see it doing much more unless someone coded a homebrew menu but all the videos showing it working are running off a flashcard in the back, as the Action Replay cannot Boot .nds files which the emulators are so i cant see this being true at all

    The Action Replay DSi is able to run homebrew. All homebrew that supports DLDI patching should work just fine. the DLDI for ARDSi is found here. http://filetrip.net/nds-downloads/utilities/download-dldi-patcher-for-ardsi-and-gnm-10-f22456.html

    While datel is known for the Action replay cheat device, they also had a small line of flash carts. First that i know of was the MAX Media player. It was a slot 2 device that came with its own passme. It did not support NDS piracy, but there was a ROM loader Maximum Overload that was released for the device from a group shortly after the release of the device, some rumored the group behind the loader worked at datel. After the MMP datel made a slot 1 device called the Games 'n' Music. Like the MMP it did not support NDS ROMs natively, I am not sure if there ever was a ROM loader for it. After that they game out with the Action Replay DS Media Edition, which was a Action Replay DS and Game 'n' Music hybrid. I believe the Action replay DSi is the same way.

    If you want emulation, don't get a DS.

    Get something that's more recent, like a PSP, GCW Zero, Dingoo, etc.
