    I was wandering with all the new slot 1 devices coming up, will there be any change to play Gba roms with them?

    Quess DSX works the best but only has 512 mb
    Quess X9 have to wait for a good review, specially about what micro sd card is the best to use.(Since they cost alot)

    Ps do not mind my English

    There is no way currently to play GBA roms from a slot-1 device.

    Well i understand that but will they be supported in the near future?
    Is there a posibility with firmware upgrade's or new slot 1 hardware releases?

    Its possible but unlikely.
    If you want GBA support either get a GBA cart as well or a slot-2 DS device with GBA support.

    Just wanted to know the posibility of playing GBA roms with a slot 1 device without all that.
    Well maybe some "not yet existing" GBA emulator?!

    It's never going to happen. Slot 1 cannot be accessed in GBA mode, even if it could be it's too slow, and nobody is going to go through the trouble of making a GBA emulator for a system that already has a perfect one built in.

    Slot 1 is waaaay to slow to allow GBA games to be streamed. You'd have to load them to RAM, and the DS doesn't have enough RAM to allow that.

    I hadn't thought about the memory. Even if someone wrote an emulator, you would have to run it from slot 2 anyway.
