    Let me explain, I have legit Wario Ware Touched but I don't own Wario Ware Twisted. Which cart can emulate itself as "Wario Ware Twisted cartridge" in my GBA Slot-2 so my Wario Ware Touched can see it?

    I have SuperCard Mini-SD but I don't know if it can do it.

    If it can do it, please tell me how.

    Thanks, I just want the extra stuff in the game, that's all.

    I think the EZFlash 3-in-1 can as it saves the game in the NOR

    any gba expansion will do what you want. you flash the game to NOR and the NDS game will read the slot 2 as a legit one. some require you to have beaten the game or have done something as a requirement before you can use this feature.

    Another game that does this is Megaman ZX, you can reach the secret room with locked doors which requires you to have the correct megaman Zero game in the slot2 to to unlock the door.

    It is not emulating anything. You should already know what the difference is between an emulator and hardware by now is.

    I can confirm that the 3-in-1 will do this just fine; I did this exact thing with these exact games.

    I have Super Card Mini SD, how do you patch the game to NOR?

    You can't.

    NOR is a type of flash memory that the EZ-Flash 3 in 1 and other similar Slot-2 adapters (Like the Ewin GBA Slot-2 device) have. It retains it's memory even after power loss unlike SRAM. The Supercard MiniSD loads GBA games from the MiniSD to the SRAM and runs the games from that. After the GBA/DS is turned off the SRAM is wiped much like normal RAM and therefore makes GBA "Emulation" as you call it impossible with this type of flashcart.

    ...ah.

    How about EZ Flash IV? I have one but I've never used it, is it possible to use this one instead? If so how?

    Guys, keep in mind that he doesn't have a slot-1 device, so suggesting the 3in1 is rather pointless.

    Windows vista x64 can be made to load unsigned drivers with easybcd.

    most people who do know how to use things like easybcd, don't ask how to install drivers in the first place because they pretty much already know how to get around any issues. It is easier to tell new people what limits they got so they don't screw up in a manner that doesn't brick thier computer.

    I guess I'll have to get a slot 1 flash cart and EZ Flash 3 in 1 then.

    I'm looking at CycloDS Evolution at the moment because it looks like the best one to me.

    Any suggestion?

    I believe the Flash2Advance Ultra can, as long as you only load one game w/o any boot menu/loader.

    I've had success with my old EZ-Flash Advance. I used it to unlock content in Advance Wars: Dual Strike, where some extra maps get added if you have either of the GBA Advance Wars carts in the slot. You just have to flash the ROM to the cartridge as the only game and without a bootloader. I imagine the process works for many more GBA flash carts too.

    The exception of course would be games that actually look into the game's SRAM for stuff (like the Pokemon linkup) rather than just checking to see what game is inserted in slot-2. Fewer carts are capable of doing the linkup when the DS game needs more than just the game's identity.

    As for your problem OP, I'm also sad to live in europe where twisted never appeared, but all you get is a short music video; Takes less time to youtube it than to patch/append both roms. It's really worth watching only once.
