    hi,
    sorry if i post in the wrong section since this is my second day in the site. This might be a stupid question but i'm also new to gaming [​IMG].
    I have a DS Lite. currently with the help of member in here, i had AK2i and AKAIO 1.6rc2. My question is: will AK2i work on GBA (gameboy adv), GBC (gameboy color)?

    Thanks for the info

    No slot 1 flashcarts can emulate the GBA except for the SCDS2 and the iPlayer

    As for GB/GBC emulation google lameboy

    since you have a DS lite you might as well get a slot 2 card as they are faster and more compatible than emulating

    If you'd like GBA Emulation on a slot one card I suggest you get the iPlayer or the yet to be released but much anticipated SupercardDSTwo.

    However, save slots are a MAJOR advantage of emulation. Also the DS Iplayer can play videos without converting Also I have a DS Lite and an Iplayer (Might as well get the best when I'm not the one paying for it [​IMG] )

    Slot 1 is for DS carts, Slot 2 is the GBA slot.

    Not so far
    Not only for .nds
    You can't emulate Gba but there's a lot of games that can be emulate with your Acekard.
    Look here and you will see all the game you can emulate.

    On that site you download the emulator you want then drop it to your microSD with the roms for it. It's as simple as that.
    Generally there's a Readme file when you download an emulator. Just follow the instructions or go in the homebrew section of the forum, you will find everything you need there.

    Sorry if this has been asked a lot, but what is the compatibility meant to be like with gba emulation and the iplayer/supercardtwo?

    Would it be as good as playing off a slot-2 flash cart?

    Slot-1 Emulation is not as good as Slot-2 Loading.

    How I run Lameboy.

    I put a Folder called GBC on my Card
    I put my GB/GBC games in that folder, I also put Lameboy there.
    I reun Lameboy normally, then I click on GBC and select my game, Lameboy then emulates the game and voila, your playing it [​IMG]

    Far as I know it saves some sort of settings file on the Root of your card so just ignore it if yousee.

    Put the folder in the root and the .nds file in your homebrew folder.
