    Welcome to AF! :D

    Create a folder called GBA games -> Download gba_bios.bin -> Place it in the folder -> Place all the Roms in the same Folder -> Start up Gameboid -> Navigate to the Folder -> You will now see all the games their

    Nope thats the one I used and it works fine for me , When you access Gamboid your not suppose to click on GBA_bios.bin , Your suppose to click on the Roms and then it should automatically run.

    Tell me how your doing it , Like this:

    Open Gameboid -> If it detects the File you'll come to a screen with Load ROM & Search ROM -> Select Load ROM -> Navigate to the folder with the ROM's and Bios file -> Select one of the games.

    Is this how it appears for you?

    Damn I don't know?? :thinking: You should literally be able to put the GBA_Bios file in a folder with the Roms and it should work...

    Anyone else got an ideas?

    Does the bios and the roms have to be in the same folder?

    I'm having the same exact trouble, and I don't know whats up. I've used this same gba bios file for PSP, PC and DS so I dont think it's the file. Maybe it's just my Cliq?

    It tells you how in a diff. forum... Hook it up via USB and a notification should show up on your phone that asks you to mount it. Do that and the drive (SD card) should show up on ur PC. You can then make folders within your SD card :)

    Anyone find a resolution to this?

    The free version works fine, but the Paid version wont recognize my BIOS.

    I did like this
    downloaded the gba_bios.bin from Carl C -> downloaded some games -> made a new folder -> past in the gba_bios.bin and the games -> start Gameboid and go to the folder and press on the gba_bios.bin -> after that you can see the games and just press on one off them.

    it workes fine for me ^^

    I have it on my SD card, I have ROMS, But when I try to play a game, it said the BIOS failed to load.

    Gameboid Lite (free version) works fine.
    The one I payed $4 for, doesn't work.
    But I wanna be able to save my damn games. Ugh.

    E-mailed Dev, hope for a quick solution.
