    Pretty much what the title says. I have an old 3DS and thus don't really get a lot out of mGBA yet. Also, I'm a noob, so I have no idea what I'm doing. Last rom I tried was Superstar Saga, and I know that GBC roms don't play on mGBA...I tried. Any ideas on how to make the game run at at least close to normal speed? And is there a functional GBC emulator out there?

    Retroarch's gambatte works pretty well for me, though I'm using a n3ds so I'm not sure how the o3ds handles it.

    Original 3ds then you need gameyob most games play perfectly but a good few don't

    I haven't figured out Gambatte. Does it use normal ROMs?

    Yes it does. You probably want to take marko's advice though as he actually does know about emulators on o3ds(correct me if I'm wrong but you have one, yes Marko?)

    I highly recommend GameYob. It is really stable and works with most games. Speed is good, supports cheats, saves, and borders etc. Been using it for a long time and I have had no problems with it.

    GameYob comes up as a black screen. Help!

    Little more info please. Is this right when you select it from the homebrew launcher?

    Yup. It runs debug and then blacks out. I think there's supposed to be more there, because I can use B to leave the app.

    Hmm. Happened with me once. Fixed it by getting the latest version from drenns thread. Where did you get GameYob from. What source?

    Probably just have to redownload it or something.

    3DS 10.2.0 28 U
    2.5 hax (maybe that's why)

    Shouldn't be a problem with *hax 2.5. Others have reported it working just fine still. Re-download and see what happens. If you still get problems you may try asking about it in the gameyob release thread to see at least if someone else is having the same issue.
