    I want a flash card, but i have some problems with them and would like some questions answered.

    Why can't gba games be played off a slot 1 card? If SNES and NES games can be played, why not GBA? Heck a lot of GBA games orgionally came out for the NES or SNES first.

    Is it true in order to play the old games, a emulator is needed? If so why can't i just download an GBA emulator onto the card?

    Is there a card besides the CycloDS that has the anytime save feature? If not, why not? I figure these cards can be easily hacked by the hacking community, just put in that feature into an operating system, and then download that os. It has to be easier than hacking a nintendo DS game card.

    Because SNES and NES games are played using an emulator. Another card that has real-time save is the M3 Real (I think) and the SuperCard DS-One.

    I thought we had a snazzy GBAtemp graphic to answer this question. What happened to it?
    Whatever, I'll summarize:
    GBA GAMES ARE NEVER COMING TO SLOT 1 CARTS
    DON'T ASK, DON'T MENTION, DON'T EVEN THINK OF SUCH A THING

    your all retarded sorry to tell you, but GBA games don't work because there is no RAM which the GBA games need and the slot ones only supply FLASH memory so yeah there, you can get a slot 2 expansion pack to use rodulfs (how ever it's spelled) gba emu thing.

    I'd agree with PharaohsVizier. There's nothing stopping anyone from porting an already-existing GBA emulator to the DS. It just wouldn't run at anything remotely resembling full speed. We're talking less-than-1-fps here.

    In answer to the second question, there are several carts that support RTS now: CycloDS Evolution, Supercard DS, M3 Real (I believe), and iTouch (if not now then very soon).
