    In the last Months the Snes9x for 3ds is coming very good on O3ds and N3ds, but GBA does nothing...
    Is GBA harder for CPU then SNES?

    I think by "higher," he meant which among devices requires more horsepower.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    Just go with VC, unless you plan to play like 200 games or use emulator magic like save states...
    I played several gba games with VC and works perfectly...

    I heard some folks saying gba vc is not emulation since the console has the gba hardware, but I don't kite believe this...

    GBA is just a portable SNES... with slight better performance, but not graphics or quality. :P

    Yeah I know some things about both have good and bad.
    • Snes does sound better cause of SONY sound chip over GBA one.
    • Snes does colors better than GBA cause of bigger resolution and also most GBA games use brighter pallet due to not having back light at launch, only after gba sp was made, various games started using accomendating pallets, like sonic advance, and donkey kong country 3, super mario advance 4. (Hint, Gameboy player for gamecube also had is own set of pallets to try and look like snes)
    • GBA holds more data than SNES carts, GBA holds total of 32MB (Based on official licensed games released) And snes holds up to 8MB (4MB was the total ever used, Genesis was 5MB but also can store 8MB) It also had compressed vides, which is how that gameboy advance video was made popular, using a very popular codec encoder by nintendo known at the time as act Imagine. (You may have seen some games on Nintendo ds with this name a boot time, those games included videos.) Now known as mobiclip Video codec (Still used by nintendo in NDS/3DS games)
    • GBA has better processing than SNES, which allowed for some smooth gameplay, slight faster load times, and dare i say it.... BLAST PROCESSING? :creep:
    Ethier way, is probably about just a bit better than snes. Comparing both systems that have the same games on them, gba i would prefer myself cause of added content and color pallet made to ajust for the portable system.

    Before everyone is quick to just tell op "USE CFW GET VC INJECTIONS" can you least answer his question first? He ask a question maybe perhaps he has reasons, maybe he can't use cfw, maybe he doesn't want injections, maybe he just want status update on homebrew situation. Yes we know more prefered solutions exist but again is only for CFW users, homebrew can be used by everyone. While a lot safer also. I know you all wanna help, but you can least try to answer the question first before telling him your obvious answers that you know will be repeated to no end. :mellow:

    That's a very good question. One i can not answer, but when reading the title of this thread one thing is abundantly clear.
    You are most certainly higher than me.
