Will Slot-1 carts ever be able to play GBA games
I read from many experienced users on several other forums that it will never happen because the DS doesn't have the hardware to run code for the GBA from the slot 1.
I think that the GBA has to be phisically directly connected to the roms and chips on the cartridge in order to work. Because it has to be able to access all the memory randomly at any time, therefore you cannot just put the roms on a cart in the slot 1 and load it at once in the GBA memory , because there is not even enough memory to beguin with.
Posted in the wrong thread, sorry.
No, GBA will never be able to run through Slot 1 devices unless an emulator is created.
Thank you both for answering my question.
Could an emulator work on the DS? I've read from posts emulation takes a lot of power to do.
Yes, and there are already some, like SNESDS, but in this case, it's ran as a gba rom anyhow... it's a conversion, and there are some SNES emulators that can run SNES files directly without conversion. For the most part, emulation can be basically done by converting the system you want to emulate game into GBA format.
