Gameboy/Gameboy color games on ds?
« on: January 03, 2007, 07:40:26 pm »
is there any way to play gb/gbc games on my nintendo ds? i noticed the games wouldnt fit into the slot at the bottom, then i noticed y, a slight difference in gameboy advance and gameboy games

(top- gba game, bottom- gb game)

theres a cut in the gba games, which the ds uses to keep gb games from comming in there. so, being the smart guy i am, i cut the sides off of my pokemon red, cause i wanted to play some old school pokemon.




it worked, to the extent that it fit into the ds now, but the ds said there wasnt a game in it =/

so what i need help with, is it possible to play gb games on a ds? if so, how? i have it cut down already to fit in there

thanks  :)

Seriously, how can you think that might possibly work? You've destroyed over half of the technical stuff inside the GB game by cutting it.

They play in the GBA, the SP is the same software as a GBA. The GBA was made Backwards compatible, the DS wasn't.
At least, not for more than one generation of handhelds. Just use a GBA, or emulate it on your computer.

It's only backward compatible for ONE GENERATION of games. So only for the GBA games. Things are normally like that.

Why would they?

That's like the same as having the wii able to play nes games.  ::)
Of course u can download and play nes games on the wii, but seriously, who has old nes games still and wants to play them?

well, i would, i even have a bunch of nes, but thats different, u would have to jam the wii with ports for all the different systems, with this, the 2 can both fit into the gameboy advance slot, so y shouldnt they make them compatible?
