    Hi, I only discovered the existance of VBAlinkreal some time ago, but I'm late to the party and can't find any working link to downolad VBAlinkreal. Wonder if I can get it with the help of the community.

    The recent versions of VBA-M have support for linking games as well, you should use that :) It's still kind of unstable though.

    I assume the OP means the VBAlinkreal fork that appeared many years ago. It allowed people to make a cable which worked like a link cable and went out to the GBA to allow link games to work that way. The specs for the cable were lost long when the binaries were still readily accessible and I don't think it was a known cable we otherwise have designs for.

    If you really must you would probably be better off getting the gear to dump saves and using that. If you are attached to the GBA form factor there are ways to use a more common cable as a PC controller.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that one could use VBAlinkreal to connect the GBA to the computer using the stock GBA wireless adapter, the one that was bundled with pokemon firered and leafgreen. But yeah apparently it's lost... in time. Can't find it anywhere, I will deal with it.
