any gud gameboy advanced emulators for the 3ds?
Use VC injection, that is the only playable way to enjoy GBA games on 3ds. https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-ultimate-gba-vc-injector-for-3ds.438057/

VC injection is super easy and it looks really cool
GBA emulator for the 3ds is really bad
VC is the most popular opinion, but i dont use it, I use the latest build of Retroarch.
1. VC Injections takes longer to load vs retroarch in terms of going from game to game, in retroarch its simple and you change games on the fly in the app. In VC it takes a longer time to go to the system menu when switching games, this takes longer than closing a regular 3ds game.
2. With vc you have to inject games individually, you are limited with the resolution and color brightness when you choose to make the vc title, in retroarch you can make it fullscreen or change the resolution until you see fit and change the color brightness and filtering which includes some nice filters.
3. Retroarch Features Fast forwarding, slowmotion, save states, lists all the games, rewinding and cheats. most likely a lot more than ive noticed.
I suggest VC for a few games, if you have a library or play multiple systems then i suggest the latest retroarch build.
re-read his sig, he's got a O3DS, if he had an N3DS then RetroArch would be viable but for him VC Injects is the only "Playable" option unless the Op wants to play at half the framerate or Less.
Definitely VC injections for the O3DS if you truly want to enjoy GBA games. Makes them look like authentic "from the e-store" virtual console too when seen from the home menu
shoulda mentioned yea only other downside to VC's your going to haveto contend w/ since you have an O3DS, is games that save are a crapshoot if its not SRAM (theres a conversion patch built into the GBA VC injector but some games that patch breaks em and some games do infact lag.) however VC injects > GBA Emulation on O3DS in terms of games that play at full FPS
VC all the way. Even with an New 3DS. Compared side by side with a real GBA SP + flash cart/retail games, GBA VC has the advantage of run natively, no emulation involved, no dropped fps, it runs the same as the cpu clock cycle accuracy.
To actually answer your question, yes, MGBA exist, but people prefer to use virtual console injections, which requires Custom firmware (IF you have it.) IF not, them emulators don't work as well, to be honest GBA as a whole on 3DS is bad, not every game works or can be played without issue, which is why only a handful of VC exist on eshop. Also i think nintendo may abandon 3DS VC on 3DS which wasn't even as good as WII U cause it was done a lot better. Stuff like the Super mario advance 4 ALL E-READER LEVELS patch or mega man battle network Secret trade chips patch, stuff like that make it worth it a bit more than usual.
thanks and lol
also all i wanna play is Mario golf advanced tour
to bring back dem memories even though i have the new one
i just prefer the old ones soundtrack and i had it as a child
How the hell are GBA emulators slow on the o3DS? I have a TI-Nspire CX CAS Calculator with an ARMv9@148MHz and 64MB RAM and I get almost full speed with a port of GPSP... And the o3DS is like... 100 times more powerful?
No optimization exists for the o3DS, so it is slow.
It's that slow? -.- Really strange...
why was everything getting removed???
(also plz can u minimize the gaymboi thing plz!)
inyection....emulation dont work so well on 3ds....its a shame .
I think that emulation could work better than PSP (where work flawlesly) But GPSP have serious problems with dynarec...at least on N3DS...on old...foget better emulation
the only problem im encountered with inyection is the really bad resolution (enormous pixels) ...and have no filters to resolve it
EDIT: GBArunner , if you have a DS flashcard, could be an alternative...but is so soon for it
So...by the comments on this thread:
N3DS Retroarch > N3DS VC Injection
O3DS Retroarch < O3DS VC Injection
Correct? What about SNES on N3DS? Do you prefer VC Injections or an emulator?
The standalone port of SNES9x (optimized for old3ds but works on new) is the best way to play SNES imo.
If you want it on the homemenu you can use oldSNES
I use SNES9x for my O3DS. Those guys really did a great job at giving us O3DS users a good SNES experience.
I ask on N3DS because I'm fixing to hack my brothers N3DS. Unlike me, he has the option of running SNES through VC Injection. As I'm getting everything ready, the question hit me: "Hmm...is VC Injection better or running through emulator?". Hence, how I found this thread
SNES9x for old3ds runs better on a new 3ds, (and supports a few chips VC doesn't). I would totally recommend it
