    Is there any emulator that runs Shantae at full speed? I've tried a couple but it's always so choppy/slow.
    The game is impossible to buy these days, unless you're rich.

    Thanks in advance.

    Shantae is a GBC game I thought...

    It is and I assume he means he's playing it on the GBC emulator FOR GBA called Goomba Color. It is always slow on that one. I've tried Lameboy and it plays almost full speed (about 55FPS pretty consistently). Lameboy is only for the DS though. I've not tried PC emulators if that's what you meant though.

    In Goomba Color, try messing with the speedhacks menu to see if it helps at all. Also make sure you're using the latest version. Otherwise, your best bet is to use Lameboy.

    I'm curious to see how it works in the Goomba Color DS demo, though since saving is disabled there it wouldn't be a viable option for playing through the game.

    dwedit has said this is one of those games that will always have problems.

    this is about as good as it will get on a gba.

    Sorry for the confusion, I meant an emulator for PC.
