From there you can always start the game after the cut scene. Works great for gameboid lite users.
OMG... does that work for Grand Theft Auto Advance? Please say it does.

You can't transfer save states between gameboid and VBA. You have to transfer saved games, ie game.savn (the in game save), between the two programs. Make sure you are using the same ROM for both programs.

Masamune, I just thought of something, could you send me the link where you got the ROM you are using. I think that is why the .sav you sent me is not working. Use the email address I sent you b/c we can't post links here.

Also, I love your avatar pic!

Thanks I love Chrono Trigger and frog was always my favourite character, and I got the rom from rom gripper so I don't know exactly which mirror it used to get the rom, I could possibly try to email you the rom I use.

I would expect the one from ROM gripper to work, but I don't have it. If you would send it to me, I will check it out.

I updated about 6 weeks or so ago and decided to give GTA another go....

*drum roll*

.... it is now working!

I suspect whatever the dev changed would add compatibility for some of the other games that weren't running. Might be worth revisiting a couple.

Default Demikids

Has anyone gotten Demikids working? It starts out just fine, but then "crashes" back to the rom list right after the first location description is displayed (shortly after choosing your name). I haven't yet tried copying saves from a PC emulator, so I'll try that and see if it keeps working afterwards. I'm just wondering if it's a bug in the rom or the bios or the emulator.

Also, Medabots Rukusho version crashes the same way when I turn on the TV in my house at the beginning. If we could get rid of these crashes, the emulator would be great. It looks and sounds really good on most games already.

Newer Android versions allow multi-touch. If you don't have that, you can set two GBA buttons to a single button on the emulator using the key mapping settings.

Having a huge problem with Final Fantasy V. It started out as random restarts and crashes, now after getting the fire crystal jobs and beating shivering I can't walk into/use an inn without a forced restart. After beating the fire boat and looting the soon to explode castle a bit got a forced restart exiting the left storeroom. Forced restart if you loot the hidden treasure room in the pirate hideout.

On the otherhand tactics advance and FFI-II have given me no trouble at all.

I'm assuming you mean the issues with the sound. It's a problem that happens in both Gameboid and VGBA. Yonghz did actually fix it in one version of Gameboid, but retracted the fix because it apparently broke some of the Pokemon games or something like that.

The version of Gameboid that seems to play Golden Sun The Lost Age properly is version 2.4.2. It contained the sound fix for the sequel, all other versions are bugged. I don't know how stable the game is, i only played the game for a few minutes.

Robert Broglia joined XDA the other day and mentioned in a thread on his Genesis emulator (talking about adding Sega CD support) that one of his next projects was going to be a GBA emulator for Androids. He created some of the best emulators such as SNES9x EX, MD.emu, PCE.emu, etc. Hopefully the project steps up GBA compatibility. Both Gameboid and VGBA are far from perfect (though at least VGBA is still being constantly updated).

I wasn't referring to sound issues unfortunately. I can't play the game at all. The game loads and you play for a couple minutes and then when you reach a certain point the game just resets. I've tried different copies of the roms and the same thing happens with each one.

I haven't tested it extensively but the latest version of VGBA seems to work pretty well with The Lost Age. It's slower than Gameboid (meaning you'll have to make do with some frameskipping) and the sound is a bit scratchy, but i haven't gotten a crash just yet (only played for a couple of minutes so far, not long enough to find out whether there's any crashes). Unlike most versions of Gameboid, the sound isn't playing at the wrong pitch, as long as you set the sound quality to the highest in the advanced options menu (and set the sound latency to 100ms). It might run better depending on your phone. I've an older single core Samsung Fascinate and it's slow without frameskipping on.

This emulator costs money however, so know what you're getting into. It's being constantly updated though, unlike Gameboid which seems dead. Just a few versions ago, VGBA had the same sound pitch problems in GS2 as most Gameboid versions. Or you can wait and see how Robert Broglia's GBA emulator turns out if he ever gets to it.
