    Nobody bothered to change it since this place turned into a DS Flashcart resource site

    it isnt that nobody bothered to change it, it's that they wanted to keep the name to stay true to their roors.

    1.) The "temp" is from when GBAtemp hosted roms, it only hosted the latest roms so roms were only available for a short period of time hence the "temp"


    2.) This place turned into a scene release + GBA flashcart site long before the DS was even a rumor.


    3.) If you don't like the GBA then GTFO.

    The Worst said it all......I prefer they left it like this, wouldn't like if they changed it into NDS or something else..

    I need to find a way to get Roor products shipped to the US. They are sooo pretty. Glad that Temp supports the Roor [​IMG]

    I know, typo, but REALLY funny typo if you know Roor. JFGI.
