    I'm currently using gpSP-J, but i happen to notice some minor slowdowns in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red, while in dungeons.

    Is this the best GBA Emulator to be around?

    I don't appear to be able to load my Savefile, nor SaveState from gpSP-J in gpSP Kai. Ain't it possible?

    The two emulators want a different file/folder structure. IIRC one wants the saves and such relative to the ROMs, while the other wants it all in a "GBA" folder inside where the emulator is.

    I decided to start a new game on gpSP Kai, it runs smooth, but i cannot save the game. I guess because the Save settings of Kai are different. Can i change this?

    kia has option to
    update th save
    2 way

    when you save(automatic) and on Exit Only (use the exit option in the menu)

    in the Misc section of the menu
    set Update backup to automatic and it will update the save right after you save

    Will it say in my game ''Save successfull'' instead of ''Save failed''?

    If it tries to save but fails, make sure none of the folders on your memory stick involved are read-only.

    None of the folder were ''Read Only''

    Im guessing it is the same as with VBA. In there, you get a Save failed whenever the save type of the emulator is different then what is required for the game. (For example, 64kb, 128kb 256 kb etc)

    Can i change this for gpSP?

    AFAIK it's auto-detected, I haven't had to mess with that for any of the games I've used.

    So im either stuck with:

    A: gpSP-J which runs the game in half speed, but can save properly
    b: gpSP- Kai which runs the game at full speed but can't save properly, except for Savestates, which mean i cannot play the content after i have beaten the game?

    After searching a bit, i noticed i got the same problems as with http://gbatemp.net/t...in-gpsp-kai-32/


    There lies my problem..

    I have found the problem and fixed it.

    In the config file, the game code of mystery dungeon was B24E, while in truth, the game has B24P as code. (Or atleast my ROM) So after putting the right code, i can save,load my game.

    Could be your ROM, because mine worked fine without altering the config file, but I'm glad to know that you got it working for you.

    The PSP is great, isn't it?

    Classic NES. do not work on GPSP (there may need to be something done to the emulator to get Classic NES roms, to work)

    so
    use a Nes emulator to run the NES Rom of the game
    NesterJ work well,try
    this one
