Sorry if this was already discussed, but i recently bought Samsung Galaxy S2, and I wanted to instal gameboid to play some golden oldies like pokemon emerald ect.
I installed gameboid, and copied roms and bios on my phone.
When i launch gameboid it doesn't start game, it just goes black for few seconds and thats all.
Any suggestions?

That's weird. I'm using SGS2 as well but I don't experience similar issues. Are you sure you got the right .apk and the ROMs?

I downloaded the gba emulator and the bios + roms and put those in the same folder. Now when i open the emulator, and select search games and select one of the games it says: no bios file found. And i have gba_bios.bin on my sdcard.

Go into the settings of the emulator. You'll see the first option should be about the GBA bios file. Tap that and go to the directory where the bios file is, and then tap on the bios file. It should now have the bios selected and will remember where it is. You should be able to load roms.

hey one thing i found to fix the same issue was to go to the app. then click the little options button on the samsung prevail its the very bottom of the phone on the far left its not on the screen open the options select settings then the first thing on the list is bios or something of that sort click that and then go through your files and actually find and click your bios so gameboid knows where the bios is. then it should work. my next issue is actually running a rom now that the bios issue is fixed lol hope it helps

guys just to change the subject, i beleive that the gameboid does not support Pokemon games? Because i played crystal and gold on a GBC emulator but i tried so much to play fire red or leaf green on a GBA emulator but it just doesnt work. I tried different roms different bin files. And i saw a guy on youtube who played (i think it was pokemon pure white) on his xperia play (thats my phone aswell). So i ask is there anyone who can explain to me how i can play pokemon on my phone? I tried so much allready so im very curious about ur answers.

And i dont mind paying

Thanks in advance

Default Save fails

Hey guys,

I have just downloaded the Gameboid App from SlideME, I guess this is the most recent version, since it's from yongzh's account himself. Though, two games of mine wont's save! I have tried the following roms that worked:

Pokemon Ruby
Pokemon Firered

The games that won't save, are:

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon - Red Rescue Team
The Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past & Four Swords

I have tried to save it with all the different ways of save types (Automatic, EEPROM, SPRAM, Flash and Flash 128KBit), but it didn't work out much better. If anyone could find me an answer, I would be really happy!

I had the same problem with saving, in this games and others. I know the solution i had taken is not the best, but, works. Simply open those games on other emulators like Tiger, wich has some problems with the screen on some games like Zelda, create the memory state, run the game and even make a save state on the emulator.

Well, after that, you can close this app and open GameBoid, your memory state and save states will be there and you will be free to run those games with no further problem. Ah, and leave the save option on Automatic.

PS.: Sorry for my poor english.

The save games of pokemon games are always quite high. You have to adjust the save games in your settings to the highest, like this: Gameboid -> menu button -> Settings -> Other Settings -> GBA save type -> Flash (128KB). That should solve the problem.

So that means I have to download another emulator that supports save stats, witch are all full versions, so I have to pay money for it... I guess that's beyond my will of playing. I could search internet for the free apk's, but I think I'll hold it with Zelda: The Minish Cap and Pokemon. Thanks though for your time!

I have a little problem so if anyone could help i would appreciate it. So, I downloaded GBCoid, Mojo GBA Lite and GBC A.D. and bios file also and some games. I put bios file on sd card but the problem is that when I open one of those emulators (GBCoid, GBC A.D. ect.) they don't ask me for bios file, nor can I find an option in settings to load it. Therefore I can't open any of the games. If anyone can help, I would be grateful.

I have HTC Desire HD.

I'm having a problem with Gameboid now that my Moto Droid Razr Maxx has been updated to ICS 4.0.4. When in portrait mode, the screen is all blurry, and the text is hard to read (using Fire Emblem as an example). I didn't have the problem on Gingerbread, and when I rotate the phone to landscape, a split-second before the picture rotates the screen gets super sharp and clear.

So it's clearly possible for the screen to be sharp and clear in portrait, but it seems there's some sort of blur filter being applied. Anyone have any advice?

I have a question about where to put bios and roms. I put the bios and the roms on my external SD card. When I started the game it made my phone crash. I then put the bios and roms onto the internal SD and everything ran fine. Is it best to put the bios and games onto the internal SD? How do you guys do it?

Edit: Well I tried it again with the bios and roms on my external SD card and it didn't crash my phone this time. I rather keep the roms on my external SD because I have more space.

I'm really confused... Can anyone tell me how to fix the Internal Battery for Gameboid? Pokemon keeps giving me message saying "The Internal Battery has run dry. The game is still playable, but clock-based events will not occur."
