    Well because it runs from an older retroarch build it won't have the same options and same ui as the latest builds but you can still navigate through menus etc and it'll use the same config from the 2005 snes9x core. It runs games great though but if your a perfectionist you may not like it. I'll find it now on my pc and upload it

    Ive no idea who made it i seen it on reddit maybe 6-8 months ago but for the games i play it works perfectly. Maybe not so for other people depending on what they play. Theres an icon included too which you can just replace in ur0:appmeta as its using a png image for the bubble icon and the id is RETR00030. just replace and reboot your vita for it to show. Ive put it on mega as file is too large for gbatemp. Let me know what you think or anyone else that try's it cause I've not used any other snes core in a while cause I think this runs ok

    Gambia, The
    I'm wondering if there are any improvements actively being made to the VBA Next core? It's really good now and I feel with one more big push it could achieve fullspeed-emulation for all GBA games. Sorry if I seem presumptuous, I really appreciate all the great work that's been done so far, I'm just really curious about the future potential of this emulator!

    I used to use that version then I tried the latest version of snes9x2005 and I think it has slightly better sound, only thing is it has slight graphical glitch in chrono trigger opening cutscene but apart from that its okay.

    Do not change cores, instead close content, then open a new game. Do not touch the load cores option.

    Gambia, The
    It's pretty good overall but it performance can differ drastically from game to game. Aria of Sorrow for example was basically perfect for me, Sonic Advance only started stuttering in the final couple stages. The Pokemon games get a bit choppy once you leave the starting town and get into battles but they're still very playable.

    The real problem are things like the two Metroid games, the IntSys games (Fire Emblem, Advance Wars) or Final Fantasy VI which all run at 50-60fps and have choppy sound. I haven't tried that many games but those are some pretty "mainstream" titles. If they exhibit performance problems like that then I think there's still some work to be done. I do really appreciate what's been done so far though!

    What system and emulator should I prefere actually for GBA emulation.
    The Vita with VBA-N (libRetro) or mGBA or the 3DS with VC, VBA-N (libRetro) or mGBA.

    Edit:

    Testing with "Metroid - Zero Mission"

    Vita: mGBA 0.7-4818 around 48 FPS, VBA-N 1.6.7 (libRetro) around 57 FPS
    Vita: VBA-N crashed the Vita already severaly times. So its not worth using it a the moment.

    3DS: mGBA 0.7-4818 around 45 FPS, gPSP (libRetro ) around 59 FPS, no VBA-N/M
    3DS: gPSP crashed the 3DS very often. So its not worth using it a the moment.

    Did you test with No Intro ROMs?

    I haven't gotten so many crushes.

    Yes.

    I have to try an older release and one of the nightlies, also.
    What RetroArch version you are using right now?

    For me RetroArch is also crashing often while only opening a rom.
    I have installed the complete RetroArch package not only a single core package.

    Anyone else with a SD2Vita Adapter get this problem:
    You load up a Core, say MAME 2003, you Load a Rom from the SDCard.......it Loads up........but when you try to get to the RetroArch Menu.......it crashes on you? Any way of fixing this? Finally got a Adapter, and have close to everything on it except Vita Games. PSPEmu, PSX, Arcade, Console Roms are all on it. Which means if it can not be fixed, that means no Cheats or Save/Load States, or Adjusting any Settings.

    I could replicate the crash with VBA-N on 1.6.4, 1.6.7 and nightly.
    While trying to create a Savestate the Vita crashes everytime for me.

    For me, I have all my Roms on the Adapter SD Card. RetroArch is Installed on the Vita. I Tested running a PSP Game on the Adapter with Adrenaline running from it, and it worked perfectly. Was able to run, make Saves, and Exit the Game. But actually, it seemed like Loading Roms took a little longer than it used to from the Vita Card. But like I said, I try to go into the RetroArch Menu, it Pauses.....then I get the Crash Message.
    Installing the more recent Nightly right now just in case. But if it happens again, might need to adjust some Settings to accommodate the SD2Vita

    Strange, i use VBA from 1.6.7 and savestate works perfectly.
    Anyway i use playlist; i dont load any core, its automatic when i load a game from the list.
    From who didn't use playlist, try to load directly a game and not a core, then select the wanted core from suggest compatibily core list after you select a game.

    P.S: ah, i use ur0 as savestate folder. Its 2x faster than any memory card while saving :D

    Hmm.. I am loading the roms from uma0: actually. Maybe thats the problem?
    Have to change it to ur0: and test again.

    Edit: Nope, same problem.
