    Yongzh is a man of his word. He promissed us a GBA emulator, and in a timely fassion he has delivered.

    $3.99 for this app. and just like all his others it works flawlessly (after the update this morning)

    The only thing diffrent about this app, is that you need a GBA Bios, like you would with a GBA Emu on a PC. You have to load the bios, then you can load the roms.

    Sound works great, as does the frame rate even with sound.

    I have tried the following roms, all work perfect.
    Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
    Tactics Orge: The knight of the Lotus
    Mario Vs. Donkey Kong
    Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

    Happy playing

    I downloaded it last night, and it works even better than the SNES emulator. Except for pokemon, which there are some sprite glitches (quite a few actually). But I'm sure it'll be fixed soon.

    yeah it still needs one more update to fix the little glitches. but this has been mostly problem free so far.

    I'm gonna bump this post because this is a KILLER APP!
    This is well worth the 4 bucks and far superior to Kiddboy, which totally blows and cost me 2 dollars I will never get back ;)

    I can't wait until the Pokemon sprites are fixed because they are my favorite games for gba and I would really love to play them on my G1 without flaw.

    I am very happy with this emu! Very stable, can you actually toggle the sound? rather than on/off.

    I take it that this is only for the g1 since it has hardware buttons? I have a galaxy coming, but since android doesnt yet have multitouch i was just wondering about these emulators?

    Does anyone have a recommendation for speeding this up?

    Killing the Home application helps alot, but it lags a bit when playing Pokemon Leaf Green.

    Also, Advance Wars doesn't work.

    Would anyone recommend this for use on the Sprint HTC Hero? I've been thinking about picking it up but I am a little concerned that it doesn't have the physical keyboard buttons that would be necessary.

    Some people put the phone in Airplane mode when they use an app like this.. makes it run faster. You can also turn off the sound and it runs a lot faster.

    pdragon.. there are some top notch RPG's for the GBA... you are better off checking a gaming site like gameboy.ign.com or something to see what kind of reviews they have. You can sort by RPG's and pick the highest rated.

    Thanks for the Airplane mode tip! Will give it a try.

    Yeah, I've been browsing around at GBA games a lot more lately to see what I can find now.

    I really like this app but how do you move about on it? The trackball is useless because if I roll left or right the cursor on the game just goes that way constantly nd the on-screen D-Pad is really sensitive. Any ideas?

    It's not a good emulator for any kind of twitch or fast action games. All I've been good with playing so far are RPG's or strategy games. I just use the on-screen dpad. It's not perfect, no, but it's not so bad when precise movement isn't required.

    How do I mount the GBA.BIO.BIN file to the Droid?

    Sorry I am new to the Android OS and I am not experienced in Linux so I'm wandering in the dark here lol

    Thanks

    Hmm, I'm not sure about the on the Droid since I haven't received mine yet.
    But on the iPhone and PSP you don't mount the file anywhere, you just place it in the emulator directory.

    Actually, the reason I just registered here is because I was wondering if anyone has gotten this working on the Droid.

    Yep. All I had to do was browse to it on the app itself. I haven't play it much yet but it seems to work fine.
