    I'm not sure, but if you were thinking of making a GBA VC game channel, you could edit the source and make VBAGX autoload a certain ROM on your SD Card.

    Haha, still seems a bit too obvious [​IMG] Might be better off not mentioning it at all.

    So has anyone been able to find out exactly how to make the VBAGX autoload a single ROM? I think this would be a pretty cool thing to have out there.

    we did having something in the making for 0C release, but the final product never eventuated sorry to say. It stalled at the beta stage.

    oh, and yes they were wads not forwarder channels [​IMG]

    Interesting.
    stev418, do you by any chance have a copy of the wad depicted in the video?

    And about the above mentioned source, maybe one could create a wad if they told the app to load the rom from the NAND (isfs), and then load/save the user's progress in NAND too, with a savefile banner, and to also load/ save the settings.xml in the same place.
