    Personally I prefer gba virtual console injection. It plays gba games perfect, without any problems, glitches or something else.

    If you think gba injection is to dark: turn up the light to 5 in system settings. Then it will be just perfect!

    What do you think?

    virtual console because it is much better than emulation.

    for n3ds,there is no reason to use the shitty gba inject,gpsp always run at full speed,and the graph is
    fairly shaper.

    I somewhat disagree I have a N3DSXL and some games like Pokemon Emerald drop to 50-55 FPS when in double battles or using the bike but run flawlessly with AGB_FIRM.

    The 'shitty gba inject' runs GBA native on 'real' GBA hardware, no emulator will reach that level of perfection ever. Yes they (could) have awesome features and come really close to the real hardware, but it is still not the 'real' thing.

    I would wish there would be an option to launch GBA games always unscaled (so you don't have to hold the select button when launcing the game)

    And a border with the device shown like with the Gameboy VC games would be really nice, but I guess that's impossible :(..

    I can't stand 1:1 on the big XL screen and retro arch layers a filter of it to smooth the jaggies out. Some like jaggies- that's ok. I can deal with it on nes games but not gba.

    50-55?I haven’t tried to play double battle with pokemon, but have you set sound driver to CSND & nearest?
    Also,keep in mind to use cia version.

    The only filter make gpsp.cia slow down is the Phosphor2x one.

    I use my DSTwo+. It works great. I don't like having all my GBA games in CIAs on emuNAND and sysNAND.

    ^ This. I'm still in fear to install something into my SysNAND and I'd like to keep it as clean as possible

    Otherwise, how does GPSP run on O3DS (the CIA version)? Am I able to play Pokémon games decently or

    DSTwo as well. Only because installing them seems complicated and DSTwo is easy to use.

    save state+acceleration.

    Tried all the ways, when runs good/perfectly, don't have theses options. When have options, don't run good/have incompatible games.

    I think like this as well. Yes, gpSP is fullspeed or near fullspeed on most games on the n3ds. But even though it is fullspeed the emulation sometimes is choppy and not perfect..
