    I don't know how many of you out there were in love with [the original] Pokemon as I was back when I was a kid, but let me tell you, I love playing it on my Incredible:D

    I know emulators take a lot of processing power and I can't believe how efficiently it runs GBA without even a hint of struggle. Even for as bad as the DINC's battery is, GBA doesn't seem to drain it all the much. Anyone out there that hasn't downloaded GBA yet for some action packed Pokemon-fun, you're missing out!

    I'm a bit annoyed with the Gameboid developer: he releases a "GBA emulator" which doesn't play Gameboy Color or Gameboy (original) games. That's not a GBA emulator; that's a Gameboy Micro emulator.

    I asked him about it, but he said "it would take up more memory." As a programmer myself, I know that reason is B.S., meaning it seems like he's just trying to milk extra money out of people who buy both Gameboy emulators from him.

    GameBoid (GBA Emulator)

    There are actually two versions, one is called "Lite." The free version doesn't allow you to save.

    There's also "TigerGBA" which I believe is a FREE GBA emulator. Though I have been playing only GBC games recently anyway, so haven't tested the GBA ones out too much.

    I just downloaded Gameboid Lite to try it out. Got the bios loaded and put my first ROM on - Super Mario 4/3. Whatever it's called on the GBA. Anyway, it seems that I can only play for about 15-20 seconds and then it does a force close. Anyone else experience this? Is it a bad emulator or just the ROM? Also having trouble w/ WarioWare Twisted... it loads fine, but I cannot figure out the controls on any of the games. Nothing works, even tilting the phone.

    I have only been using the emulator for a few days now but I haven't had any problems with it Force Closing. Try a different ROM and see if that fixes it. As for the controls, they are on the screen, but almost transparent. Hit "Menu" and you should be able to navigate to where you can look at/change the controls

    So I downloaded NESoid and tried it out w/ Ice Hockey, TecmoBowl, and Super DodgeBall and it's working flawlessly. Too much fun! I'll figure out the GBA stuff later.
