    Visualboy Advance 1.7 beta 4

    Forgotten has just released Visualboy Advance 1.7 beta 4! Release notes:

    This will be the last 1.7 beta and contains numerous fixes to the GUI
    problems since the GUI migration. It also reverts some of the timing
    back to 1.6a timing due to problems caused by the new timing. Also,
    several Gameboy bugs are now fixed.


    Download it on the official website.[/p]

    I'm having a lot of problems with VBA betas. Almost all games that uses mode 7 graphics, such F-Zero Falcon Densetsu, Starsky & Hutch, Crash Nitro Kart, Hot Wheels World Race and several other, just play but controls does not respond. You can't turn left or right or move to any direction, and if you hold enough the pad to any direction, then when you release it, it's still pressed!

    Even menu items and minimize-maximize-close buttons does not respond! You can't close the window. The game is still running...

    I play it in windowed mode, 3x (not fullscreen or maximized), but even playing in 1x, it's still the same. I have a P4 1.7 with 256Mb. The only way to make it a lil' bit less damn unplayable is using Automatic Frameskip, but it works for a few minutes.

    Any solution? [​IMG]

    Sneaking around VBOY I discovered it seems the problem is with the option "Synchronize".

    When I activate it, almost all games (with new VBA 1.7b4) does not respond. When I deactivate it, mostly games runs fine, but sound is crappy.

    I think a good addition if it does'nt already exist is to make it so you can select a seperate directory for .sav files so you don't end up with a folder full of ROMs and saves.

    Yes! I thought of that exact idea but I forgot it!

    It's so annoying when playing roms from your rom directories, just to test them or play them, and suddenly you get a directory filled with random .sav's of which most you don't even want!

    A seperate directory for saves only would be great!

    i think VBA already has that addition, options - Emulator - Directories, change the directory of the Roms and the Battery and you have the roms and the Battery in different directories [​IMG] i have the roms in one directory, and the .sav and states in other...
