Action Replay DS released

1) It fits into the GBA slot on the DS.
2) Has a DS card slot on it.
3) Connects to the PC.

Doesn't this seem like it could be used to accomplish any number of things via software? A programmatic PassMe? Lots of potential here....

Is there a way to amplify the WIFI signal for playing games?

There is very little acurate inofrmation about this device. IT IS *NOT* an action replay for the ds.
The Action reply duo is really 2 products in one. (I had to use that phrase even though I hate it.)

#1. It is an action replay for gba, and thus also works on gba games in the ds.

#2. It is a savegame backup, storage, and restoration device that works with both GBA carts and DS cards. It has software that allows storage of the game saves on the computer and even allows you to use those save game files you find on Gamefaqs. The DS savegame and backup system works even when using the DUO on a regular GBA(-SP).

Call a spade a spade. This is Action Replay DS - it doesn't permit you to play DS games on the GBA, does it?

They can call it a "Duo," but you and me need to communicate, not advertise - therefore: Action Replay DS, Sticks in GBA slot is much more economical.

Joe has a point, though; before I read his post, I imagined that the Action Replay Duo was indeed an Action Replay for DS, and therefore games in the GBA slot could indeed use the DS's unique features... and that means... maybe the US Play-Yan could...

But no, it was not meant to be. My dreams of a dual-screened Play-Yan not taking up both slots have been dashed, and I must return to the corner to sulk. Curse you, Joe, and your abundant knowledge. Curse it.

It isn't an "Action Replay" for the DS in the traditional sense... you cannot use it to cheat in DS games. However, it has a slot for DS cartridges that you can use to backup your DS save files and share them with others.

The Action Replay Duo doesn't use any of the DS's exclusive hardware; it is a GBA cartridge, so it will run from a Game Boy Advance, GBA SP, Game Boy Player, or the DS. However, like any other GBA cartridge, it doesn't use any of the DS's unique functions (dual screens, touch screen, etc.). So, you cannot boot a DS game from an Action Replay Duo.

Hope that helps.

You can use it to cheat on DS games by using hacked savegames. Perhaps they will add the ability to customize savegames to your liking, but more likely they will just release pre-patched savegames.

Are there any neat hacked savegames out there right now? Like, I don't know... "Turn Samus Pink?"

Turn Samus pink,... THAT would be useful!

You can't turn samus pink, because the color is based on the model texture...also there are no saved games for metroid.

Yes there are hacked save games...
