    This is an excellent Update. Escepicially the Real Clock for Pokemon. I like this Update I hope the next update will be the same. Also this update lets you choose skins. So why dont people create skins for the emu.

    Enjoy! Visualboy Advance Fans

    True, I don't remember anyone asking him to solve this problem upon his next release which is now done. As futureone pointed out, we'll just wait for a patch, okay?

    Are you really that agitated to play of all games, Hamtaro? Seriously. Fret over a game at least worth waiting to play. [​IMG]

    hmm... not to blame Forgotten (who's anyway the GBA BIG BOSS) I think he has no more idea... he doesn't know what to do (i haven't tried the skin function yet, but I REALLY wonder what can he get skinned)
    i bet if he started working on the link feature, 1 week during, he would manage to make it. but does anyone know why doesn't he want to make such?

    Probably because he's just doesn't want to work on that, not after all the requests that were sent to him.

    In his FAQ on his webpage, he said he was afraid it would bring attention to his emu that he doesn't want. I'm guessing the law.

    he doesn't want to do the link feature because that will encourage more people to do emulation

    i think that's what he dont want, it would be "GREAT" if he make the option he have in the POLL, that one of the "sound spectrum analyser", that would be awesome... and other thing he should do is to record movies with audio [​IMG] , i hope he do it, well anyway, in my opinion its the best gba emu [​IMG]

    how come my Pokemon Ruby version by MUGS still says, "The internal battery has run dry. The game can be played, however, time based events will no longer occur."? [​IMG]

    because you didn't activated the option! [​IMG]
    go to the emulator option and set "real time clock"
