GBA emu for NDS?

Asked by pandamonia (34points) June 12th, 2009

I know people are saying that “it’s impossible.” Really? The NDS is so much more powerful than the GBA, so is it really that hard? Then, people say that you could just get a Slot-2 card. But what if you have the DSi (like me)? I love my old games and I want to play them . . .

Any ideas?

At the moment, there is nothing that you can really do to play gba games on a DSi. I’m in the same boat as you. :(

The main problem is that the original DS and DS light have both a DS and a GBA processor in it. Since the DSi only has DS processors it’s hard to make GBA games run at the same speed. Sure, the DS is stronger than the GBA but you have to emulate the way the GBA processor works… which takes quite a bit more power. So the possibility of someone writing an emulator is possible, but it still may not emulate at full speed.

The EZ-Flash IV GBA / EZ4 is a powerful cartridge that allows you to relive the amazing experience of your favorite GBA classics. With the EZ Flash IV Card, you will be able to play games in the best conditions thanks to its perfect GBA game compatibility and its simplicity of use. You will also be able to enjoy NDS games if you own a “passme” device or have flashed your DS firmware with the latest “flashme”.
