  • 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

      Hey guys, first post.

      I've been using gpsPhone for a good while now, but I just realized something. Say I wanted to put one of my own saves (Pokemon Emerald, if it matters) on the emulator. Where would I put it, and what would I do?

      Also, fantastic work on the application, it's truly fantastically made, and I use it every day. Keep up the good work!

      Hi, I don't know whats happening, but every time i try to play a GBA game i get a message at the top saying something i can't quite remember right now. But it freezes at that screen and i can't do anything except hit the home button and gpSPhone makes a tempsave file in the saved games tab.

      O.K. I figured it out. Install WinSCP(just search it on google), and then search "Install the GameBoy Advance emulator on your Ipod Touch!!" on youtube. As of right now its the first result.

      Nice I'll check it out later tonight... how are the controls? I mean is it as responsive etc when you're holding down a direction and pressing a button over and over?

      Its pretty responsive, it might miss a tap or two, but its still pretty responsive.

      Has anyone noticed that the control pad seemed slightly shifted? I have to press on the very point of the right side to go right, but only the middle of the arrow on the left side to go left. (looks like the control pad is shifted to the left slightly). Okay when you get used to it, but makes me miss the D-pad sometimes. Anyway to calibrate this?

      I'm not going to give a direct link to the Roms, but theres an interesting comment here regarding how to get Roms on the iPod/iPhone a lot easier. It seems theres a repo for it
