I use mGBA but it's so temperamental, always get 'Load Failed' or white screen loading. Any better ones out there?

Tried 2 different mario games, redownloading it again makes it work for a few tries. I can't use PSP gba emu's. I cannot setup that due to not having a PSP game to install VHBL. No console to transfer either :( or is there any other way? I am new to this, only had my vita 5 days :)

For now, gpSP running under Adrenaline is (unfortunately)best for GBA emulation. Hopefully soon with GPU access unlocked we will see native Vita emulators(mGBA or RetroArch cores) run GBA at full speed.

What specifically is wrong with mGBA? It is the fastest emulator on the Vita by far, and I have had no issues getting any ROMs to load. Do you use the BIOS or not?

Megaman Zero games slow down very hard, even on mGBA.

Like someone already said, GPSP Kai running on adrenaline or ARK which ever you can use.

If you have psvita firmware 3.60, use adrenaline installer. You need henkaku for it. If you have anything above it (Like 3.63) Then use ARK, you need a pc program to install ARK Homebrew loader to use. Either way, i prefer you use that one since it works well and is already a well developed emulator compared to the recent vita ones. :)
