    Default DS Option Pak is Inserted...

    I have a little request for those of you that just happen to own an Action Replay for GBA and a DS. If you would, drop that bad boy in to the DS and let me know what it says next to the GBA Option..

    I've been trying to get mine to work, but, sadly, my GS seems too dirty and the DS won't read it. That's what I get for "storing" my GS on the floor.
    Egbert, I miss you...

    This is probably close to what you're looking for... I dunno if this screne was obtained by inserting a GS into the DS's GBA slot though...

    By using a Flash Cart or Action Replay the screen will display "An option pack has been inserted." Those are the only two discovered ways as of now.
    Mostly just play Nintendo 64. If you've got games PM me! Cart only.

    Not all flash carts. Most work just fine like they did in the GBA. my Flash2Advance & EZF cards work fine.

    On a similar note, has anybody tried shaving down a GB/GBC cart so that it fits past the wards in the cartridge slot? I know it won't run, but I'm curious as to what sort of bizarre results it might produce.

    if you take the gb or gbc cart apart as i did and put some backing behind it and stick it is it says DS option pak inserted as the others. can't get it to do anything.

    however the gba flash cart i have works just fine.
    My life and perception has changed, but my principals are the same.

    but it does not say option pak, it says GBA Game.

    Me too - have not gotten the option pak msg yet.

    Here's some other interesting stuff that i found on the web.

    1st - Rumble Feature?


    2nd - people are reporting that the DS is sending scrambled images to television sets that use rabbit ear antennas. more info here - http://forums.warppipe.com/viewtopic.php?t=13217
