GBA backwards compatibility means GBA emulation or emulating that feature some games have when you get extra stuff when you have a specific GBA cart inserted in the GBA slot?

What about local multiplayer?

means GBA emulation mostly (in the context of DS backwards-compatibility mode)

the latter is on the TODO list too, but that's not backwards-compatibility, it's just matter of letting the user pick a GBA ROM and exposing it at 0x08000000

it's included in the 'melonwifi' bit, it's essentially the same thing

Would this be mostly to try and improve the timings on a single PC running two instances of melonDS or have local multiplayer be playable over the internet? I did remember reading a post a while back saying it wasn't really possible to do the latter because of the timings for local multiplayer being very strict.

hi, im a very new user and im not super educated on everything thats happening, but heres my opinion

i think that fullscreen and separate windows need to be much higher priority, and gba backwards compatibility honestly can be scrapped, theres just no need for it nowadays, if you want a quick and easy lightweight gba emulator you grab VBA, and if you want multi-emulator convenience you get retroarch

regardless, thanks for being the hero ds emulation deserves

Why would you use VBA nowadays? mGBA or Higan are much better options for GBA emulation.
I'm fine with GBA backwards compatibility. I don't think it should be a priority by any stretch but when in the future melonDS has covered most other things well enough I think it'd be nice to have.
Agreed with full screen and separate windows needing to be higher. Well, I don't really need separate windows but full screen at least is something I'd consider to be quite important. You can work around the lack of full screen with external software for now but that's obviously no ideal.
