Yes it will work with a 3rd party accessory if you pirate GH On Tour.

The handgrip uses the GBA slot, the R4 uses the DS game slot.

You can't talk about pirating here, but if you wish to buy a replacement grip controller for your game, check this (UK).

ok thanks guys..im thinking of getting her a r4 for Xmas just wanted to see how it all worked

also, how do you dump games onto your PC so you can then play them on the r4? she has a fair few games but she is really rough with everything (broke my GHWT drums lol :( ) so my play is to put them all on the one cartridge. how big are most games? she properly has 30 games like Hannah Montana and my little pony etc etc

I'd forget about r4 - most are fake. M3DS Real "seems" to be the card at the moment...

IIRC, you'd need a different bit of kit to backup the games that you've got - but I'm not 100% sure on that.. Google's your friend.

There is a piece of homebrew software that you can use to dump games using just the DS, but I think you need a slot 2 flashcard for it. I know you can backup saves using just a slot 1 flash card though. GBAtemp is a better site for DS homebrew stuff.

I've never heard of fake ones, I ordered one of some sketchy website and it works perfectly :p

r4 don't make them any more, so more than likely new ones are fake. If it's got SHDC support, or is called r4v2/3 then it's not an r4, but a clone.

The only card I seem to be able to get my hands on around here is the DSTT. Is it good?
