    Sup guys I recently wanted to play some GBA games and after the disappointing lack of features (literally none) GBA.CIA's have I must say I will stick to Emulators, I've used mGBA before but now that I have A9LH I would like to take advantage of the extra power as I'm playing Mother 3 and some Pokemon rom hax and they tend to get frame drops quite frequently...

    I did a lot of research and everybody is saying "retroarch gpsp" so I got it (CIA version). In fact I installed RetroArch gpsp and the mGba version (Now I have two of the exact same icons on my screen and it looks like they're the same application.)

    Anyways, I opened one of them up and loaded up Mother 3 and it crashed, then tried out other games and crashed again, rebooted afterwards each time too. Looked it up and some people said you need the GBA_bios.bin. I have it but I don't know where to place it. Still crashes. What do?

    The bios goes under retroarch/cores/system iirc.
