    So how well does it work? Do GBA games stutter or do they run fairly smooth?
    *I just realized the Discuss button takes us straight to this same page...is that suppose to happen?

    Yeah, just for an extra, small bit of convenience (plus it looks kewl). [​IMG]
    I'll stop if you like.

    (BTW, haven't tried this out, so couldn't tell you how well it works).

    Nono, no need to stop. Was just confused for a second. I kept clicking the button to open in another tab and this one just kept coming up. I'm tired. u_u

    I'm gonna give this a shot in a little bit. [​IMG]

    *Edit: Just tried it out. Mother 3 is running perfectly. Wow. I just wish I knew how to use the supposed turbo function of the emulator. [​IMG]
    I couldn't figure out how to get it to save properly, but we got Save States to work so that's even better. [​IMG]

    *Edit again: There's Turbo! On the classic controller you press the right stick to the right. Yay! [​IMG] Awesome homebrew!

    Hey Gaisuto(or anyone else that has used this emu), can you tell me how the games appear on the tv screen? Do the games take up the whole screen? And if they do, are the games pixelated at all?

    I've always been interested in GBA emulators, always thinking about how they actually look on a tv screen, but have never tried them.

    Thanks.

    Well the only game I've tested this with is Mother 3. It does take up the full screen and it's actually not that pixelated. But you can zoom it out a bit so you can make it the exact size you want it to be.

    Sweet. I like that it takes up the full screen. Now I'm debating if I want to start Mother 3 on the GBA, or play it on my TV.

    I appreciate the info Gaisuto.

    This is much better than the other VBA emulators, that's for sure.

    That takes care of RIN (GBC emu...)

    Now all you need is this ONE package... GB/C/A all in one!

    Now, if the can only add DS support........




    If you hadn't guessed, that was sarcastic... I know DS on Wii will prob never happen...

    This is a few days old now. I had it before the news post here.

    edit: Has anybody gotten Rhythm Tengoku to play right with this emu? I keep getting no sound out of it.

    I might've just discovered a bug.

    Sonic Advance (U), Sonic Advance 2 (U), and Sonic Advance 3 (U), had the levels beaten by default. They also didn't show their language select upon startup, which they're supposed to when initially purchased.

    The roms were unpatched. Maybe someone else can give them a try, to see if this happens?
