    I haven't tested harvest moon, but mario & luigi is still broken. That's a very difficult issue to fix. But I expect you may be able to get past that point once an ingame menu is implemented.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I just noticed there was a stupid bug in the previous version that made the metroid games white screen. I quickly fixed it.

    Final Fantasy IV works only correctly when you use the wramicache version. You should give that a try. For some games it makes a huge difference (only some don't work with it, the rest works better)

    Sorry if I'm missing something basic. Is it possible to remap the controls? I'm just hoping for the alternate scheme for Super Mario World. Y = Run, B = Jump

    That's not yet possible, but is a planned feature. I agree that those buttons are more preferable btw xD
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I finally got time to setup CI/CD for the GBARunner2 repository. So every time I make a commit, it will now build the binaries and upload them here: https://github.com/Gericom/GBARunner2/releases
    Now everyone is able to directly try out the latest features and experimental branches without struggling to find the right version of devkitARM and libnds!

    Thanks for the quick reply! I look forward to it. I'm good even with an INI or something easy if you don't want to go full GUI with it.

    Yeah, you're right that I could probably implement ini options before I implement the actual settings gui. I wanted to save the settings in an ini file anyway, but creating a gui is quite some work, so that's currently holding me back from implementing any settings haha.

    I would be 100% okay with just editing an ini if you want to start there. Just something simple like this would suffice for me:

    A=B
    B=Y
    L=X
    R=A

    Thanks for your hard work!
    Wouldn't it be more user friendly to add a quick explanation on the github readme for what version to use with which system/SD card combo? (should we use ARM7 vs ARM9 and wramicache vs no-wramicache)

    Thanks!

    PS: has the save function been restored in the latest commit?

    I'm talking about SD saving actually, I should have specified it in my previous post, sorry.

    Yeah, I didn't know how long ago you last checked of course. The current state is that SD saving is working, the corruption issue has been fixed and most save types are supported without SRAM patching now (I recommend not patching anymore)

    Confirm that issue in Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow:
    When you press START to go to Ingame Menu/Settings and choose"Soul Set" (only that option has the issue) then you leave the menu the Screen gets black or the Player figure is gone.Menu/Map is still accessable.Tested with wramcache on/off.

    Castlevania - Harmony of Dissonance
    US Rom works with wramcache ON/OFF.
    EU Rom works with wramcache ON/OFF.

    Found some that regressed or improved a bit:

    Final Fantasy IV Advance: works only if its on arm7(9)wram, freezes otherwise
    Final Fantasy VI Advance: freezes on boot on either arm7(9) versions
    Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Games: now working, tournament mode no longer freezes
    Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories: no longer has glitchy FMVs (i hope)
    Lady Sia: Audio out of sync
    Magical Vacation: freezes past the title screen
    Mega Man Zero 1-4: freezes on contact damage (cutscenes or gameplay) on either arm7(9) versions

    EDIT: all on 06-30-2019 version

    I can confirm the issue @alexander1970 found in Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow (E).
    Castlevania - Harmony of Dissonance (E) works. Both games are clean No-Intro roms.
    I used both arm9 build from the Commit 03f8646 (2019/07/01) release.

    Edit: Dancing Sword - Senkou (J) no longer works. The game works with Commit a903967 (03-06-2019).
