    You could try running Advanced Task Killer (or Fascinate's built in one) and see if you can kill off the Gameboid process and re-open it? Maybe it just crashed.

    Have you tried just rebooting the phone too?

    How the crap did you just join in September 2010 and get the username "fascinate", lol. Congrats!

    If you mean turning off as in holding down the Power button until it asks if you want to Power Off, then yes. If you just hit the power button to turn the screen off, no - do the first option.

    Do you have the BIOS in the same folder as the ROMs and told the program to use it? Did you put just the .gba files in the ROM folder, not zipped folders or something?

    And it's just the .gba files in the folder? I tested it out, you can use files that are in folders, but not if the folder is a .zip. So if it has direct access to the .gba files.. I read somewhere that either the phone or emulator is a bit picky when it comes to the BIOS used. If you like, I can PM you the link of the one I use.
