Default Gameboid bios

I've found gba bios on the internet, but my droid won't allow me to download them, why is that, and how do I gain access to these bios?

Connect your Droid to the PC via USB. Your phone should 'bing' and a notification will appear at the top of the screen. Drag the screen down and touch the USB icon. Select MOUNT option, and you should see a new drive icon appear on your PC. That drive is your phone's SD card. Create a folder called games/gba in that drive and copy the GBA bios and any other ROM games into it.
Right click the SD drive icon and select EJECT. Drag the notification bar down on your phone, select USB and UNMOUNT.

Run your GBA emulator and select the bios in games/gba folder

Downloading BIOS is illegal, so posting where to get them is illegal

Just google it.

Hey Plz relpy

I was wondering if you have to download the Bios directly from the phone. Or could you do it via computer. Also do you have to pay to update Gamboid, and how do you update it.

Default Couple question using gameboid

1) is it possible to trade on pokemon games?
2) can i move the d-pad to a different spot? (incredible)
3) i cant seem to transfer passwords from golden sun 1 to 2, it will accept it then reload the game and make me re-enter.

What is the BIOS? As far as I know, PC emulators don't require one.

Also, how do the games fare on phones that lack multitouch?

PC emulators have the BIOS integrated. That's why.

You don't select the game. You select the bios in settings. Press the first option in the settings menu.

Hi,
I'm the same with this because I've downloaded the bios, the app itself, everything but I'm still having trouble with it and it just keeps coming up saying "gameboid is running" when it clearly isn't. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

You have he bios on your pc already right? Just connect your phone to your pc with the usb cable and out the bios anywhere on you phones sd card. (Altho it would be wiser to create a folder named gba bios so it will be easier to find later). Now disconnect your usb and start gba. It should give you the option to select bios. Select it from wherever you put it earlier. If it doesn't prompt you then just click you phones menu button for the settings and choose bios setting.

The Bios can be downloaded from either your phone or your pc. Gameboid can be updated from the website SLIDEme.net, where all the oid emulators are located. Most are free (gameboid among them) but some are only available through purchase.
