    Does the Vita have a GBA/GBC emulator? If so, can someone link me to the .vpk of it?

    Retroarch contains cores for Gambatte, TGB Dual, gpSP, and VBA Next (first two are for GB/GBC; last two are for GBA).

    Be warned though, last time I tried both GBA emulators, they both ran at snail speed...

    If you can use psp adrenaline or VHBL you can use gpsp kai, last i check, on real psp, it works well, but i haven't gotten it to work on my vita, so if anyone knows how, i would like help with that. :)

    Sadly it only plays GBA games, if you want GBC, you should try emumaster 3.00 It plays GBC and GB games, and sega master system and game gear as well. Is pretty good and has lots of great options for customization, but no cheat support, not that you would need it with save states. Both emulators are psp made but works on Vita with Vita half bite loader or Adrenaline, so is just my opinion to use over the retroarch emulators. :P

    About 2 or 3 weeks ago, so it might be better than what I think it is. I was trying out Need for Speed Most Wanted and Super Monkey Ball, but they're 3D games so that might be why I had such a bad time with the massively-slow framerate anyway. :P

    Do you have a playstation 3? You can install a demo on there that way, there was also a website that allows you to install demos on psp if i remember years ago, but not sure if it exist still. The demos was free to use, but that is on psp. your option can be a ps3 with access to playstation store. Unless someone created a VHBL already that can be installed with vitashell, then your only option is the retroarch emulators. :unsure:

    Maybe it may help, but not sure, i never need this process.

    mGBA. It's a native Vita hack, so I assume it works with HenKAKU, although I haven't really tried it much. Recently added GB and GBC support as well.

    mGBA works well, I've use it a fair amount and most games run ok. Some slowdowns, but nothing too bad.

    Pokemon games run pretty well, the only slowdowns I've experienced was in Emerald in the foggy/misty areas (like the fire gym). Other than that, runs fine.

    Couldn't say about GB/C games though, I use Gambette for that which works great.

    do you have to convert the rom file into some weird format or do you just place the .gba/c file in a folder?
