    Behind you
    So, I downloaded NDStation to convert pokemon ruby from a .Gba to a .Nds, It worked and now Pokemon Ruby.Nds is now on my Acekard, When I start it up, I get this loading screen with white words that say>

    Survived FAT init.
    Survived ENS init.
    fat:/ Pokemon/Pokemon Ruby.nds
    Backing up save file:
    Identified save file:
    fat:/Pokemon/Pokemon Ruby.sav
    Writing save file.
    Writing GBA game to PSRAM.
    Writing complete

    After that, it does the Rainbow GBA into, then it freezes and says Gameboy.

    Help please?

    Btw, I don't have an ez flash.

    I forgot
    If you don't have a GBA flashcard it won't work. Period.

    GBA emulation only works on the DSTwo, and that's because of it's added CPU in the card itself. The DS isn't able to emulate the GBA on it's own (or at least at playable speeds)

    Sorry, but you cannot play GBA games on your Acekard. In order to play GBA backups on a DS or DS Lite, you need slot 2 cart like the EZ 3-in-1. Obviously, this only works on a DS system with a GBA slot.

    If you want to play GBA backups using a DS flashcart, the Supercard DSTWO can emulate GBA games.

    Kind of late but if you read the description of ndstation its just to make it simpilier but you still need an EZ flash 3in1
