mgba, vba next and gpsp in retroarch. though i've never gotten gpsp to launch a game.

none of the emulators run the game i've tried on them super well all the time. for example golden sun gets really choppy during battle animations.

excited for the progress of the scene!

this is all on 3.60 btw.

In terms of native GBA emulators there is mGBA, gpsp (from RetroArch) and vba (from RetroArch).
I still get the best results with mGBA (even if alot of people say the gpsp would be better by now).

gpsp is significantly lower quality and slightly faster (requires vhbl)
There is a gpsp version in RetroArch now...

Edit: btw next time you can look here ;)

I know but last I checked the VHBL version ran much better

yea the battles still lag in golden sun. all three emulators run the game exactly the same. they appear to be of equal quality at this point. i haven't tried too many games though, mainly just want to play golden sun.

and im not sure what vba stands for but it definitely plays gba games.

I'm starting to think that emulating golden sun well is a sign that the emulator is badass. Mgba has alot of potential except those graphical bugs are legit gamebreaking.
