    Hey guys, I've been wanted to know this for quite some time now. I've been looking around on the internet for an EZFlash 3 in 1 for the DS but I really don't want to fork out £19 for one. I do however own the Nintendo DS browser with the memory expansion pak. is there some way I can make the DS utilize this to let me run GBA roms off of my R4?

    Alright, thanks. Does that mean I can use it for QuakeDS?

    Sorry but no. Quake 2 requires 16 MB of RAM, but the opera browser expansion only has 8 MB.

    Taken from the official Quake 2 DS site:

    However, you can use it for Quake I DS, which I believe is what you asked about.

    I think the EZ3in1 is the best option but if you have an M3Real or M3i Zero you should use the M3 GEP (GBA Epxpansion Pack) as it has cheat & Real-Time Save support but only works with M3Real or M3i Zero.

    Well I have an R4, so it looks like I'll need an EZFlash 3 in 1.
