  • 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

      Yes if you have the skin and scaling set to look that way. You can select 5 different controller layout skins and also to have the graphics full screen or smaller as you have yours.

      gpsPhone 1.1.2 is a great improvement over 1.0.0. The controller overlays and mute switch were things that I was missing, so I'm glad they were implemented.
      Can't wait until someone figures out how to implement Gameshark/Action Replay on this thing

      Minish Cap runs great, by the way.

      the ROMs folder should be in the private/var/root/media directory. and inside the ROMs folder should be a folder called GBA. thats where you put the roms.



      i have a frame rate issue with this new emulator. i installed it from installer. i am playing super mario advance and the audio and framrate is pretty bad. anyone experiencing this?

      I can't restore my Pokemon saved game. It just throws me to the main screen and then asks me if I want to start a new game. What happened and what can I do?
