    The answer isn't straight forward. Some users elect to use a certain BIOS for speed or stability gains they might have on a particular game for certain game-play sections. It highly depends on a case-by-case setup.

    What endrift says isn't wrong. You generally won't see a benefit using an external BIOS vs the mGBA internal BIOS, on average/most of the time. The option to use BIOS are for those who codes their own / borrow a special built BIOS, trying to sequeeze a few extra FPS and what not.

    Assuming that this currently nightly build can handle multiple bios and those separate (GB, GBC, GBA, SGB) aren't just placeholders

    try addding in:
    gbc.bios=mgba/bios/[your GBC bios].bin

    If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you're going to have to scoot your GBA bios off the:
    bios = mgba/bios/...
    and let your GBC bios borrow that.

    THIS POST IS JUST A COLLECTION OF CONCEPT RENDERINGS. THERE IS NO BUILD OR CODE AT THIS TIME.

    I've been mulling over the idea of implementing bubble2k16k's emulator GUI into mGBA. I'm at the preliminary stage of checking for feasibility and practicality. Is it within my means and capability? Here are some mock up pictures of what I envision. The purple based color scheme was borrowed from https://mgba.io/ , to keep her emulator distinct from bubble2k16's signature blue.

    Edit - The last panel with the exiting 'Leaving so soon?' swaps out the red for Bubble2k16's main blue, kinda like a tribute for where the derived GUI design stems from.

    Is this actually been done in code?
    Or is a simple mockup not yet coded?

    If it's code, I highly recommend you contact endrift and get in talks to merge this to the official repo, as it is looking pretty nice.

    They're mock ups as stated in the reply. Currently brainstorming and mental sand boxing how bubble's GUI would work on mGBA. The next step is studying her source code, bubble's source code, devKitPro, cmake, CTR SDK, and all the other tools needed to make it happen. Treat the pictures as an imaginable-viewable possibility BUT know that at this stage, it's a pipe dream.

    I'll go back and edit my post with bigger and bolder warnings.

    Oh haha sorry I just got cluttered with the images in my small screen and missed that part :P
    But it's looking pretty neat so far!
    Hopefully this can come to fruition.

    so how's mgba these days?
    Are fps constant or still fluctuating over and under 60?
    Is sound still scratchy and buggy?

    nope, still the same as before. frameskip doesn't seem to do anything, sound is still weird, not even the language select screen in advance wars is full speed.
    Am I doing something significantly wrong? Anytime I find activity in a mgba thread, people are saying that everything improved so much in the last months, but its stll running the same it ran over a year ago when I first got my n3ds.

    i know VC is good.
    but I do like emulation features like fast forward and savestates, so i will try it again and again. or until someone fixes gpsps random crashing.

    i know, thats what im saying, games that are SGB enchanced but not GBC enchanced run on SGB mode and the ones that have both run on GBC mode, therefore better colors (i think) but no borders
