So there only seems to be two emulators to choose from, and the one called "gbSP" doesn't seem to ever work and only crashes whenever I choose a game. The other one, "VBA Next" , fares much better but it's still extremely inconsistent. Half the time it will crash when I try to return to the menu to close the content or use a save state or something, either totally freezing or giving some weird error saying something about a "core dump"? Otherwise it seems to work fairly well, there's a lot of audio distortion and some significant lag but it's usually playable.

So are these all normal occurrences, and if not then what may be the issue? Is there anything I can do about it?

Keep in mind that we cannot provide BIOS files for you, as they are copyrighted materials and we do not allow warez here. Google is your friend, for acquiring them.

Once you have the BIOS, you simply put gba_bios.bin in ux0:data/retroarch/system and then that's it, should work after that.

Thanks, I'll do that!
