    For the GBA emulator, you will need the original GameBoy Advance ROM file. Google for gba_bios.bin and copy the file to your Droid SD. I'd recommend you create a folder called games/gba and drop the ROM there along with other GBA game files. Unmount your phone and launch GBA. Point the app to the folder where you copied the ROM files.

    Does the phone have to be rooted?

    No, it does not. Just connect the phone with a USB cable to your computer and mount it. Manual has full instructions for doing this. That's the easiest way to manage files on the SDCard.

    So I don't get how the Gameboid works. I have the app downloaded, but how do I download the files to my phone for the games? Appreciate any help you can give me, thanks!

    Connect your phone to the computer and download ROM's onto your SD Card.

    You'll also need to download the gba BIOS file...and have it in the same folder as where you store your ROM's.

    I did that and it tells me to select Bios file But there is "No Files in this Folder"

    Make sure you are are looking in the same folder as the location you copied your bin

    Does this load and play old gameboy games? I think the gba let you play original gameboy games...correct me if I'm wrong, or point me to an original/gameboy color emulator.

    That's a good question...

    One that I don't know the answer to...

    In my previous experience (from the ones I used on my PC), I don't think GBA emulators could play normal GB and GBC games...

    To be honest, I never tried to run a GB game on a GBA emulator because I'd have a GB/GBC emulator to run them I might be wrong...

    Hey everyone!

    In Gameboid, I can load all my ROM's except for Classic NES - Super Mario Bros. Whenever I load it, Gameboid always crashes. Has anyone gotten this to work?

    solution - run super mario bros on NESOID instead. :D

    btw duckhunt on NESOID is LOL

    The GameBoy Advance could play GB and GBC games.

    The GBA played GB and GBC games by including a separate processor which was used when a GB/GBC game was inserted into the cartridge slot. The base GBA CPU was not capable of emulating the GB and GBC, and so emulating the GBA CPU does not give you the capability to play GB and GBC, they're two totally different CPUs.

    Good point.

    I hope a decent GB and GBC emulator gets made, since Kidd GBC is a total joke....

    You can use Gameboid Lite. The only feature missing is the save state feature. You can still use in-game saves without any issues.

    This isn't a feature of the original Gameboy Advance anyway.

    so learn how to develop it yourself and it will be free.

    Does anyone know if it is possible and if so how to link between either GBA, emulating PCs or other Droids?
