    I'm thinking of getting a DSTWO, but there's two main questions I'd like answering:

    1) For hacks, can you use cheat codes from the game it was hacked from?
    2) Will hacks work with the DSTWO, especially for GBA emulation? Or does it depend on the game?
    3) Is the GBA emulation on the DSTWO good?

    1) You're unclear. What do you mean by 'hacks'?
    2) See #1.
    3) It works fairly well, with quite a few games running at 100% speed. But there are also a few games that are either unbearably slow, or don't run at all.

    Sorry, I should have made things clearer. When I refer to hack, I'm referring to a game which has been messed with to make the game different, like Pokemon Emerald 386 (hack of Pokemon Emerald) or GhebFE (hack of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones). Sorry, I'm not good at explaining things. Thanks for answering the last one though [​IMG]

    Okay. BTW, those are called 'romhacks'.
    1) Yeah, I'm pretty sure that it would work. If you're talking about DS romhacks, then you'd need to find the original game's codes in your cheat DB (using R4CCE), and change the ID to match the new ROM.
    2) As long as the original game works, then the romhack will work.
    3. Already answered. Just letting you know that Pokémon runs (pretty much) perfectly (as of the newest update). And the GBA emulator only saves the in-game save when switching games or exiting the emulator.
