    Why is it impossible for an Flashcard to take screens while playing? I mean, you can acces the Flashcard's menu while playing.

    Flashcarts do not emulate the game, they are being played natively.
    Being able to access a menu whilst playing a DS game works through code injection.

    It technically is possible to capture the screens to export as a .bmp, Moonshell can do this by holding select for a few seconds, but it also causes everything to freeze.

    So it is possible - for example - to save your game, take the screenshot, reboot your DS, and continue playing?
