    play any gameboy advance games on your htc desire
    A step by step guide.
    1 go to the android market and download Gameboid lite (free)
    2 now download a "bios" for the emulator (link removed)
    3 next step go to (link removed) download the roms "games" you want
    4 extract the game/rom file from the folder you downloaded using a program like "winrar" easily found on google
    5 save bios and extracted games onto your memory stick, i suggest creating a new folder called GBA or something and putting them in there for convenience
    6 right with all of your stuff saved onto your memory card open gameboid and firstly it will ask you to locate the bios file from your memory card, simple enough you just browse the card, next it will ask you to select the game you want to play, after done that you can take it from their you will see a settings menu you dont need to change anything
    7 one exited the setting menu your free to play.

    NOTES
    *games save
    *i sugest downloading pokemon red if you used to play the pokemon games
    * should work on other models i just have the desire
    *game play is smooth and just as fast as it was on the gba
    *download many games as the file sizes are unbelievably small

    @choi i dont know if there is a version you have to pay for but this one is all you need, there is only one advert while you select the game, i promice you wont see any adverts in game might try gold once i finish red again

    Which bin file did you use because I have tried quite a few of the bios files now and it just fails to load it every time :(

    Anyone else get annoyed with trackpad/virtual keypad.... any alternatives? With games like Mario etc it's too fast paced to use either :(

    @tbl they should swap it with a stick, and the axis on the stick should swap depending if your holding it horizotaly or verticaly!!

    Yup, then it would be great. At the moment the games look great but are quickly tiresome due to being pretty much unplayable. iPhone/iPod are the same with action style games.

    Works great, just the inputs keys for gameplay that let it down.

  24. So, what are some of the games you guys are playing?

    I've only 'installed' a few roms to try out the program, but am looking for some good/fun games to play comfortably (so no fighting games or anything that involves a lot of awkward control issues).
