Out of curiosity, I tried this on VBA-m and was surprised to find it worked, so I am left a little puzzled as to where the issue lies.
I have tried writing and re-writing my RTC code a few times over the past week and have been unable to get any kind of response working on mGBA. Can I see your source? I've modified how the RTC works significantly and it seems to be outputting correctly now but I'm still getting errors from your program. Skip to content.

Fortunately, while VBA-M the current actively developed fork based off VBA still doesn't do sanity checks for those files, it just crashes immediately instead of the code running havoc.
So, either:. The original GBA screen was not backlit, so the screen would appear to be rather dark. To compensate for this, games would have very saturated and bright colors.
Game Boy Advance emulators
The bright, overly saturated colors would appear rather normal on the GBA. In emulation, however, the appearance of these colors are undesirable. Some games made after may look better with the backlit colors, however, as they were designed with the GBA SP in mind. For everything else, there are several ways to deal with this:. For GBA, there is gba-color. If you prefer the darker color options that those emulators have, then use vba-color. There is also nds-color.
There are a number of different save formats for GBA games. With raw save data, it's very hard to detect what save type it is just by looking at it. Visual Boy Advance tries to autodetect save type but often is incorrect and this causes issues. A fix to this issue is to use a file called "vba-over. Current VBA-M versions come with vba-over. This completely avoids any save type issues, but makes its save files incompatible with standalone VBA and most other emulators.
Libretro devs created a command line tool to convert libretro-VBA. You can just drag and drop a. The same can be done in reverse. A precompiled Windows bit binary of this tool can be found here. Now open VBA-M again as much times needed for each player, and have them each use their separate Joypad configuration.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Now this thread here is about RetroArch crashing when launching with mgba core on Vita. I posted here because it seems to be enough to reach the guys able to solve.
After the fix in 67 and later twinaphex 's commits I am able to compile the core with no issues with this command:. I checked the thread. Want to back this issue? Post a bounty on it! We accept bounties via Bountysource. It would have avoided 67 and fixed this too, most likely. But there's one, and only one, yet:. Isn't this line in Makefile. S directly to the vita section in Makefile. No success too S which I think is making arm-algo. And looks like that line changed in this commit from endrift : ef.
Buuut it crashes as soon as it is launched Sorry if tagging is something that bothers you. I did it because I think that maybe you guys have skills to solve this. Just cherry-pick the commit that removes that function: mgba-emu bc The crash generates a psp2dmp file.
I'm not sure how to use this file to investigate the problem, but if someone knows, here it is psp2dmp. Just to make sure I'm doing everything right, I tried to compile another core fceumm and install it on my PS Vita. It works with no crashes. I've learned how to extract info from that psp2dmp file. Will try to compile them again with no optimizations -O0 and maybe the dump can provide more valuable info No success.
Even compiling with no optimizations the the psp2dmp file generate the same message as above. Looks like something related with strftime function. Maybe something to do with locale config? The compilation goes flawlessly, but RetroArch keeps crashing on launching. I googled a bit and this libretro forum post from !By Alejandro Rodriguez.
Last revised January 8, This tutorial is to help you with mGBA on Windows. A new emulator, mGBA is focused on being fast enough to run on lower end hardware than other emulators support. It doesn't want to sacrifice accuracy or portability. Installation is simple: just extract mGBA from its zip file. Not sure how to extract zip files? Here's a video tutorial showing you how: how to unzip files on Windows.
I recommend DocumentsDownloadsor create a folder on your desktop. If you place mGBA somewhere else on your main C drive, then you may be restricting it to read-only access. Doing so prevents mGBA from saving anything. To open mGBA, double-click on. Note that you can place your games wherever you want.
Typically, people place them in the same folder as mGBA. Save states is a feature that saves the exact spot you are in any game. You can use this feature manually by going into the File menu or by quick keyboard shortcuts. There's one detail about save states with mGBA that can be confusing. There are two types of them. You have quick saves and regular save states.
With them, you can continue at any significant point in the game. You can also learn about how to transfer saves between other emulators. Fast forward is the feature that speeds up the game. To access it, press the Tab key. Hold it down and let go until you want the fast forwarding to end. The process of entering codes can be confusing. Although confusing, a valuable bonus is that mGBA lets you enter multiple codes at once. Most other emulators only let you enter one line at a time.
For these directions I'm going to walk you through entering the 9-line GameShark code that enables the complete Pokedex in Pokemon Emerald:.

Download Nintendo Gameboy Advance ROMs
In my links pageI have some good links to sites where you can download ROMs. If you want to try to find more sites than what's in my collection of links, just Google around. Note that the best place to find ROM hacks is Romhacking.
People have reported having a great deal of trouble getting cheats to work specifically with the Pokemon games. Then your problem is that you currently have mGBA in a read-only location on your computer.You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting. I'm new to GBA romhacking, and my first impressions are absolutely negative. I tried downloading the Moemon romhack please don't judge my tastesbut it crashes after the intro screen on mGBA.
I kinda made an unpleasant first impression in their Discord server, complaining about their usage of IPS patches inability to tell which revision to useand incompatibility with mGBA and likely hardware. They complained I hadn't read the readme, which specified the ROM name which doesn't help and CRC32 facepalm, it's a horrible and insecure checksum to use.
We use VBA-M as a base and that's it. Are my assumptions correct? Having to deal with this kind of mindset is frustrating. I brought this up, the community mocked me and demanded me to "show them how". Echo RAM? VRAM locking? Are these GB-specific? Wow, how shameful. I haven't tried that hack on hardware but I will not break my back to support VBA-M bugs, nor will I put any effort into it at all.Level 3. Joined: Mar 18, Messages: Country:. Hi all, the wii is still my favorite way to enjoy many classic games well, i am a original hardware guy but nothing can beats the wii convenience in combination with the video and controller options but i always had problems with playing classic gameboy games.
For some reason it's not that easy as GBA. There are a lot of solutions but which one has the best fluent gameplay, pixel perfect resolution and sound? Here is a list with options and some of my thoughts, i've tested all emulators with Super Mario Land it's a good game for testing, it's a big plus when the pyramid pixels all have the same size : - VBA GX 2.
I like the scaler options but the sound has a delaya bad thing if you are used to the original gameboy. Here is a samplelisten to the gameboy bios logo, destroying blocks and exploding turtle. I have enabled integer scale to maintain the correct aspect ratio, disabled Bilinear filtering to make the pixels as crisp as possible and switched to 2xnormal filter, but it runs less fluent than mGBA and emGBA. Conclusion, my least favorite choice.
No$GBA or VisualBoyAdvance?
The picture quality is not as good as the other options. Level 7. Joined: Apr 3, Messages: Country:. I do not know which version of retroarch you are using, but I like the core in SuperrSonic's version of RA, it works really well for me and it's what I use the majority of the time. Modern versions of RA for Wii are really subpar in performance. Here's a link. I could share my configuration if you wanted.
Level 9. Joined: Oct 29, Messages: Country:. For me the best solution is Gambatte core for Retroarch. I'm using Retroarch 1. I have no audio or video stuttering. Owning original hardware as well and didn't notice any difference.
With gambatte I can reproduce the thing that I care the most when talking about GB: the original greenish colors and dot matrix grid scanlines. I really can't stand seeing GB games in black and white tint. Last edited by Tetsuo ShimaOct 19, Tetsuo Shima likes this. Of course you can, although Tetsuo already gave you a good aspect ratio and I rather write here so anyone can benefit of what we share.
Viewport X C. Viewport Y 96 C. Viewport Width C. Viewport Heigh All the filters off, because I don't like how blurry make the picture. This way you get to use borders too if you so want the one on the photo below is an overlay we took advantage of to seem like a border, years ago I spent time doing it for as many borders I found.
Depending on what I want to play, I choose either the core with the bigger picture or this one. Last edited by MaeseJesusOct 21, MaeseJesus likes this. You must log in or sign up to post here. Show Ignored Content.Full Version: Dolphin. You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting. Hopefully within the next few months it will. On dolphin wiki it says it's possible to connect with "A modified version of mGBA".
There's a slightly newer version sitting around somewhere, too. The problem is that it also requires adjusting some stuff in Dolphin, since the GBA link stuff there is kinda buggy. I never tested the combination of fixing them and using VBA-M still, but I presume it would have broken extravagantly.
Additionally, I have a solution that works much better coming up, but it's still not polished yet, so it hasn't been merged. Sounds good! I'm glad this is something being worked on. Better support with Dolphin would be amazing. Ultimately it would be a treat to be able to play Four Swords or Crystal Chronicles over netplay with dolphin although I'm not sure if this is at all possible. It is possible with vba m 2.
Rest should work fine, but go to the dolphin compatibility page just in case. The four swords adventures page has an updated guide on how to connect that version, it worked.
