    I have a version and want to play GBA, but the mGba emulators runs very slow when I try to play Pokemon Firered. The sound is lagging too. Do you know any fix for this or any emulators that can run faster?

    Sorry if I posted this wrong, I'm new to the forum.

    Haven't had much problems with mgba when playing sonic advance, Crash Bandicoot and Rayman. They all worked very well.
    You can try gpsp retroarch
    Core.

    Try gPsp.
    Use a bios and I recommend to turn off sound.

    Isn't a bios included in the emulator? Sorry for my beginner questions, I don't know much about this.

    Nope. You have to get one from Google, we aren't allowed to link them.

    The emulators I've used have worked without a BIOS file, but maybe they work better with it. Thank you thank you for the help.

    mGBA works without one, but gpSP needs one.

    What's your 3ds model and what firmware version is it?

    Unfortunately, ol3ds is very slow with your 3ds firmware. GBA emulation is working best on N3ds or O3ds firmware 9.2>

    On O3DS over firmware 9.2, I'd recommend just waiting a year or so. A lot of homebrew is still in early stages of development and you're using the least ideal setup (outside of not having access to homebrew at all).

    Aaah. Is that because of kernel access?

    What do you mean by least ideal setup? How can I set it up better?

    Yes. With kernel access, you can have perfect GBA emulation because you won't even need an emulator. GBA games can be converted to .cia format.

    It goes something like this: O3DS over 9.2 < O3DS on 9.2 < N3DS over 9.2 < N3DS on 9.2. It's extremely boiled down, but that should give you the basic idea.

    So sad. I wish I had not updated my 3ds a year ago.

    Don't worry! I updated my 3DS to 10.3 and dont have any entrypoints yet. So don't feel too sad!

    Even on New 3DS, Fire Red and Leaf Green are both extremely slow using the latest retroarch emulators.

    so is there a frameskip option in gpsp I'm missing? I'm getting 33~ FPS on emerald, o3ds and with 1 or 2 frameskip it'd be absolutely playable.
