I tried to do that, because my GBA broke, but I couldn't get the emulator to work. :<

I don't, because I can play them on real hardware.
It's much better that way, believe me.

If you enjoy doing challenges, then emulators are almost a must.

[SIZE="a"]The only emulator that I use is on my android phone so I can play GBA games without bringing a different console.[/SIZE]

I'm playing White and HeartGold on an emulator, because I can't afford a DS. But playing on a real console is much more enjoyable.

I have, but I much prefer actual hardware. Although the speedbutton is the love of my life.

I can't stand playing hacks on an emulator. I prefer to use actual hardware, the way the official games were intended to be played.

All of my Pokemon games and it's game systems still works, but I play old ones on PC, thanks to the speed button.

For GB/GBC games, I use TGB Dual and for GBA, I use VBA-M. (◕‿◕✿)

It really depends. If it is a newer game like a DS game, I usually go out and buy the game because otherwise it is considered piracy.

However, if the game is a GBA or GBC game that is no longer sold or doesn't even have the hardware sold any more, I emulate it because there is not really any other way to get it. I could get it on eBay, but it wouldn't be profiting Nintendo, therefore it would be just the same to Nintendo if I emulated the game.

So, DS no, Gameboy yes.

Can anyone give me a hand in attempting to run some of the hacks on here? I attempt to run pokemon Sienna and Pokemon light platinum on visualboy advance, but i just end up getting an error saying that it is an unsupported file type, can anyone help me to figure out what is wrong, or tell me how they run the games so that i can copy them?

For Sienna the base is Firered, then follow the above steps that Meez said. Although I'm pretty sure Sienna isn't complete yet, correct me if I'm wrong.

I think what would be BOSS would be a handheld DS modified to play Roms with a speed up button. Someone get on it, now. I will write you a check with how every many zeroes you want on it, just make it happen.
