    We need hardware acceleration first, otherwise, they won't run well.

    Very true, without that as we keep moving up the emulator food chain fps will start to go down and down. Each generation gets more demanding.

    Mad some really big updates to the original post which should be very useful and help people save a bit of time getting to the right threads, save some time and get to having fun with these emulators.

    All the best to everyone.

    Will keep this thread updated with all the latest news, info and updates.

    Most? There's so many fuckin' NES games you wouldn't believe it, especially if you include Famicom.

    Nintendo sure does like to use old games and try to make them new again.

    Some classics are timeless so I dont mind.

    Other games should be forgotten lmfao

    Do we need bios files for PFBA?

    Bios files go in the roms folder within the pFBA folder.

    I only have a few bios files, like Neo Geo ones.

    Names can be left alone for the DS emulator as well as the GBA and GBC.

    pFBA emulator needs the games named properly to what the emulator requires

    Incredible! I may consider buying another switch just for this.

    thanks!

    Compatability of games has increased drastically along with performance and big fixes.

    Be sure to try out GBA, GBC and pFBA for all your emulator/virtual console needs.

    Gba_bios.bin should go in the switch folder on your micro sd card which helps with gaming performance and glitches also.

    Be sure to test GBA 8.0 and 8.5
