Can't find a GBA emulator that doesn't sound choppy

    Hey guys, have tried a bunch of emulators (mGBA i think it was called, GPSP, Retroarch) Some meld into others, I'm a bit confused. Anyway, out of the couple that worked, all of them have choppy audio. Is just how things are right now? Played the same game on my Wii U and it sounded great. Granted it was a virtual console version of it.

    Use a VC inject into your 3DS. It works perfectly, with a few exceptions for saving.

    Does that mean saving isn't possible?

    Saving is possible for most games.

    VC inject is the only good way in my opinion to play GBA games. Yes, you can save usually.

    Pokemon games are the only ones (I'm aware of) that need to be modified with a hex editor to save, so you'll be fine, assuming those aren't what you're trying to play
    (But you can find patched .cias on that iso/chaos site, so no need to hex edit anything)

    Random-ass games. Don't be so paranoid about it. Pokemon Ruby is an example, but it has a way to fix it.

    I'm currently trying to get Castlevania Circle of the Moon, Aria of Sorrow, and Harmony of Despair. All GBA games. Would it be possible to point me in the direction of those VC injections? It's actually somewhat new to me.

    1. Get your .gba game
    2. Go to an xxx Ulimate Injector (these are on GBAtemp)
    3. Install using FBI or your other, worse alternative

    Oh I see, so I create these injection thingies myself. I'm surprised once people make one for a certain game they don't just put it up for everyone to use in a location where all the other games could be.

    You can find a lot of GBA games pre-injected on that ISO site.

    They do, but it's so flippin' easy that it's just laziness not to do it yourself. (With certain exceptions.)

    Has there been a solution to injecting roms yet that is possible without outside equipment?
    I want to be able to download roms and create headers on my 3ds! :D

    How would you inject a ROM without "outside equipment"? What do you think injecting a ROM is?

    I'm just saying it'd be nice if there was a convenient way to do all this right on the 3DS.
    As far as I know injecting is using the existing VC framework with games that haven't been released on the VC.
    I don't know if there are technical limitations that make this impossible, but all I'm saying is, it'd be very nice to have.

    You can't do that on the 3DS itself though, can you?

    No, you cannot. Only the legitimate VC games on freeShop.

    No, there's no way to download ROMs directly onto your 3DS.
