    maybe with the source code we can't get vba to have link support but you have to remember that the code from the free version is also in the non-free version so he probably wouldn't. Which sucks! I guess you'll just have to get what you can.

    I used Vba only for pokemon and I have it from a magazine that Pokemon games alone account for 40% of all rom sales for GBA. How can Pokemon not be supported? ok here is a list of stuff i tried:
    1] Export Pokemon ruby sav from VBA to no$gba folder, the emulator still clean sweeps my sav
    2]I used the Bios but no use
    3]The Emulator doesnt save the game

    Can anyone suggest a way to transfer VBA saves to No$gba and how to save in no$gba without crashing the game.
    Second I guess Martin removed his email from his page for some reason. So Its impossible to contact him unless you have his address in ur address book

    No somebody made a comment that the Pokemon saved system is all messed up, if it is how did Forgotten manage to implement it in VBA.

    As I said before, Pokemon haves a lot of issues with save files; other games saves should work.(tested it with Megaman Battle Network 2 and it was fine)

    Anyway, anybody knows the fastest settings for the emu?(the + trick doesn't work on all roms)

    Back on topic, yep it's pokemon's fault for that tricky save, other games work just fine.

    Hmm what good is an emulator if it cant run the most successful of all GBA games Pokemon .
    Forget linking or VBA exported save files No$gba doesnt even save Pokemon battery files on its own.
    Second it lacks the capability to link 2 different games, So how do u trade between ruby and sapphire & fire red and leaf green. This emulator will be good new to Players of Zelda or Megaman but for Pokemon Fans its a big dissapointment.
    I will give Forgotten credit for his work, His emulator never gave many problems, it ran all the pokemon games and allowed their battery saves. VBA is sill the best. This means that Martins claim that No$gba emulates the entire GBA hardware is wrong, The pokemon games are the only GBA games which use all the GBA hardware be it e-cards, wireless links , Camera etc. If any payed Mr.Korth 5000$ for a debug enabled version only to learn that it doent emulate commercial games like pokemon properly , the person would feel cheated.

    Pokemon bugs

    1] using Bios in Pokemon Ruby causes a absurd bug, Some sort of scanlines appear when you play the game.

    2]You cant export save files from VBA

    3]No$gba deleted the save files on loading

    4]Using battery save from the game causes a crash

    5]You cant link(Trade,battle or mix Record) because you need to save first.

    6]You cant run 2 different games, how will u trade across sapphire and ruby

    7]No$gba says it emulates all functions, where is the E-card simultaneous rom function

    What we need is an advance emulator like TGBdual which could link all games including pokemon for the gb platform. Plus No$GBA claims the emulation of entire GBA hardware , where is the option for loading a E card rom in conjunction with a normal rom.

    Plus I believe Mr.Korth has behaved a bit proud , rude on other developers. Look at his webpage:
    There are a lot of sarcastic comments mde on other emulators.

    Plus he should remember however he describe No$gba , its an emulator and he is the only one in the industry who charges for it and is really bad in replying user mails.

    Plus No$GBA still doesnt have netplay, if it goes correctly games like Megaman only transfer move data, they dont use the link to optimum efficiency, its like emulating N64 link which is easier to develop. Game like pokemon rely on the link a lot and if an emulator can emulate Pokemon , it cannot claim to be the best.

    As a developer myself i will say Visual Boy Advance still Rules and Forgotten is still the best developer for GBA emulation.

    Mr.Korth mentioned that he welcomes help but who would help him, he already hurt the most skilled developers through his sarcastic hurting comments.

    No$gba has been developed as a tool for Game Developers. Not to play commercial games, to make them. It's main aim has never been to emulate commercial games, and never will be (which is why it's useless complaining about netplay, the developers don't need to test their multi-player games over the internet). razermanx, I'd like you to quote his claim that it 'emulates the entire GBA hardware'. I think you may have mis-interpreted that - it emulates the GBA hardware, nothing said about additional peripherals.

    As for Martin's attitude, I myself have found him very easy to deal with, and I think you'll find it's a result of dealing with many of the people out there, similar to those on these boards (sweeping generalisation? Yes. But the large majority of those who play ROMs illegaly are difficult to deal with). Just read the comments from the people on his site after he pulled the freeware version.

    Just to clear up another issue, zip files are supported - if you know how. Like no$gbc it requires that pkunzip is present, and there are certain restrictions due to the fact that pkunzip is a dos program.

    can u post top10 multiplayer games?

    For me No$gba is the best emu as it has link supoort and plays the games perfect(speed and sound);just one thing missing;fullscreen;when playing up to 4 players the screens are too small

    You can always maximize the window, to increase the size.

    There are programs out there that will make any program running in a window, full screen. I don't know what they are I just hear about them. Check Google

    I only use No$gba for multiplayer games. VBA runs full speed for me, and has tons of features.

    Go to this link for recommended multiplayer GBA games.

    I dunno if it's been resolved, but I need to know how...

    When I startup Four Swords, it goes to the linkup screen, then it just waits there, without getting past the Please Wait screen. How do I fix it

    Pokemon save transfer
    [​IMG]
    2 on 2 battle
    [​IMG]
    How I got it to transfer:
    1. Ran the the game through a SRAM patcher
    2. Took the .sav from the VBA and transfered it to the no$gba battery file
    3. Renamed the VBA save in the battery file to the patched game file

    Thank you shorty , it works, i could save and link the games, great discovery.

    You have to convert the game to XROM 128 to make it work.
    Now Pokemon works on No$gba , I take my words back Martin did provide a hidden way to run all roms, provided they are free of errors.
