    Is there a GBA emulator for the wii that would be able to play GB, GBC, and GBA games at 2x or more speed?

    Actually the Speed skip on this emulator needs work...I love the emulator it just needs an update, I also noticed there are every now and then a sound skip here and there! Hopefully will be getting updates to the SNES, NES and GBA emulators for Wii soon! Major updates would be nice!

    I'd be happy with the GX series of emulators if we could just get the natural frameskip to 0. Too many games I play use sprite flickering as a means of "emulating" transparency, and with the natural frameskip where it is now, characters flat out disappear when they start flickering. (Primary examples are Inspector Gadget for SNES, Nightmare Before Christmas on GBA.) Without any options to change Frameskip, it really make these emulators inferior to their PC and PS3 cousins. The main reason I still use the Wii versions is because I love the GUI so much. Very clean and professional. (Something that if the PS3 emulators ever get, I could possibly drop the Wii ones.)

    I don't think anyone will optimize VbaGX to have a smoother framerate. If people can optimize a 64-bit R4300i CPU to run at mostly full speed on a Wii, that alone should give the people who program VbaGX some motivation to do the same.
