  • Gameboy Advanced Emulator for iPhone/iPod Touch
    For all of you that want to play gameboy advanced games on your iphone, the time has come!! The folks at zodttd.com have released gpSPhone, a gameboy advanced emulator.

    This should be available via installer now. If you want to install it manually here is the link

    Place gba_bios.bin (GBA BIOS) in /Applications/gpSPhone.app/ do not ask for or share for links for this . . . you will be banned if you do
    Place your roms in /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA
    we will not provide roms here, or link to them, so don't even ask, don't post links to roms . . . . once again warez = banned here.

    Things that still need work:
    - Compatibility is lower than usual but many games are playable. This is being worked on as a high priority.
    - Sound output is disabled, but it IS being emulated. So performance will only get better as this feature gets worked on.
    - Auto frameskip might be off. Switch to manual frameskip if needed.
    - GUI and instructions need a lot of work.

    be sure to check out the developers site for updates on the project.

    thanks realisticmind1

      0.0.8 makes no games work for me for some reason. Nothing loads, the emulator hangs actually, have to hold the home button to regain control of phone.

      I had a couple quick questions about the the gpSPhone GBA emulator:

      Does this work with iphone version 1.0.2?

      Is gpSPhone 0.0.8 on Installer still require to upload gba_bios.bin to /Applications/gpSPhone.app/ ?

      Lastly, can someone let me know how to change the properties of the .bin and .gba files to 755? Can squid do this?

      Thanks!

      As far as the bios is concered, legally they cannot include or make available that file. Now if they dont give a **** about laws, thats different, but for people who do, you won't be able to get it from them.

      couldn't seem to change the .gba file properties to 755 in Squid or Finder apps, anyone have an easy way to do this?

      EDIT:

      nvm, installer easily loaded gpsphone 0.0.8 and installed it with the properties at 755, and ibrickr made it easy to put the gba_bios.bin in the app folder and then create /GBA in the /ROMs folder and u/l my games

      absolutely love it!

      Wow this is an awesome emulator.. The games are really good and good graphics.. All games I try work for me..

      Only negatives/things to fix:
      - Sound is choppy on most games
      - Screen should fill up the entire black area..

      I like that the control buttons are really big.. It is much easier to move around and easier to press the A,B buttons than in the NES emulator.

      Great work!

      Saves do work, on version 0.0.8

      and, even from 0.0.1 you could save the pokemon games.

      Just do it as u normally would. Start > Save. Der.

      In case any one was wondering gpSPhone v 0.8 works with firmware 1.1.2. I would recommend backing up the bios file before you do the upgrade to 1.1.2, saves having to try and find it again. I am not sure if it is just me but I find the sound and better and the games don't seem as choppy, as I say it may just be my imagination.

      No you're right..the sound for me was very choppy (still is slightly but much improved). Next release should be smooth.

      no noticeable difference in 0.1 for me

      If I press the home button during a game and go back, the app freezes

      loading saved games doesn't work for me either (in Advance Wars, and Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced)

      v0.1 gives allow suspend!

      so it pauses the game if you get a call or are inactive!

      its very good they fixed this! ii lost so much game time thanks to a phone call.
