    How do the Boktai games work with an emulator? Is there something special that needs to be done to simulate the nonexistent solar sensor?

    There are patches for them that let you use the L+R+ some other buttons to modify how much "sunlight" is let in.

    I believe links to patches are allowed, so here you go

    Ah, I modified my post above. It depends on which ROM release you are using.

    edit: wait a minute, I think that site only has the (E) version of Boktai 2. The Boktai 1 patches look like something else.

    Alright, here's one right here on filetrip.

    http://filetrip.net/f12559-Revised-Boktai-solar-sensor-patches.html

    But again these are for the European releases of Boktai 1 and 2.
    I'm sure there are US patches floating around somewhere, or you can just download the E versions and use those.

    I came across a .zip with refined solar sensor patches for all three Boktai (1-E, 2-E, 3-J version) games some time ago (I actually forgot where I got this).

    To quote the readme:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You can download it here: http://gba.dellicious.de/patches/boktai_solar_sensor_patches.zip

    edit: seems like I was too slow ;)

    So I'd have to play the European versions?

    If you're emulating with VBA, there's an option you can set in the settings to choose a light level. I'm thinking it's for the solar sensor of Boktai games, but I'm not exactly sure.
