I'm with you DKK. GBA emulation's about nothing more than "I want free". I ceased a GBA hack as well and there's nothing like playing the games I like on my DS or my GC Gameboy player.
The rom tide has turned toward the GBA. Once the Revoloution comes out, I'm sure we'll see a resurgence in the older ones.

iirc i think it was the driving force behind snes and nes emulation. homebrew code is great and all, but if there was no interest in making an emulator there wouldn't be enough data available or a place that wouldn't damage actual hardware. honestly, i think its for the good and bad. i cant say i support nintendo's views, but i still own the revisions of the gameboy. (gb, gbpocket, gbc, gba, gbasp, and now the DS) and while i do own a flash cart, i find myself playing games more like pocketnes and the like, because the games are actually fun. let alone i can fit 30 games or so in the space of 8mb. =)

eh, without pirates, i dont know how advanced some of the homebrews would be. not like there are many professional quality homebrew out there but the point still stands.

Uh...I don't believe there's even 5 gigs worth of roms in the whole goodset of SNES roms. I personally have what I think is the entire US set plus a handfull of translated japanese roms and that just breaks 700Megs.

Hmm...I stand corrected. I neglected to consider bad dumps, over dumps, hacks, betas....blah blah blah. But anyway, damn! That's alot of stuff.
