    [​IMG] GBAtemp Global FAQ starting today
    Ask your questions now!
    July should be an interesting month to spend on GBAtemp! We've got a few nice things coming up for you, and here comes the first one!

    [​IMG]
    Today, we've decided to start gathering a list of Frequently Asked Questions, ie. questions that regularly appear on our forums. Please help us build it by asking any questions that you might have, and even questions that you can answer yourself! This will hopefully help GBAtemp become a better place by reducing the amount of recurring topics!
    Thank you everyone in advance for your contribution!

    [​IMG] The FAQ topic can be found here. Questions will be added to it shortly!
