    Why would you need to play a zipped game? Cant you just unzip it?
    And most carts work with .zip files, try selecting it.

    somewhere
    For games as small as NES/GBC it shouldn't matter.

    Well what about the nds games? I am curious and btw one thing I can't figure out off topic is.. When I am in either nes.ds or gameyob I can't figure out how to exit the emulator and get back to the main flashcart

    Most emulators on the DS don't support ZIP because the DS is very slow and doesn't have much RAM so even unzipping a small file would be slow. You can forget about zipped DS roms.
    Try the soft reset hotkey to exit the emulator, I'm not sure what it's set to on that card, probably L+R+A+B+X+Y or something like that. Maybe you can check it in the loader settings.
