  • 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

      There's a limited amount of space on the OS partition, but you can use a symlink (at least on 1.0.2 and 1.1.1) to put additional apps in.

      here's a hint: read the thread before asking a stupid question that has already been answered not only in the very first post, but throughout the first page.

      it loads fine, i select the rom, then it crashes and reopends homescreen.
      im guess its the permissions i need to changing, but im unsure how to do this.
      ive tryed "get info" from sftp but wont let me change it to 0755.
      what am i doing wrong. i cant find any info on this at all, some please help.
      i have the correct files (.gbs) and i have tryed .gb/gba/.GBA/.GB

      Why is the image so small and the controls so big?
      Frame rate seems really slow too but definitely an awesome first version.

      So if you install it through installer do you just have to put the bios in the package folder or do you still have to do that permissions 755 thingy?

      I tried this a minute ago with a couple of games.
      It seemed pretty smooth considering its the first real release. The controls are a bit flawed and seem to stick! I like the big buttons as I thought the NES ones are a wee bit small. (maybe my fingers are just too big!)
      I can imagine this being amazing in a few more releases when the teething problems are ironed out.

      Great work guys... keep it up

      Very cool. Can't wait to see how this turns out because it's pretty unplayable at the moment. You can't seem to use more than one button at a time atm which is a pain but that will probably be fixed soon. Next will be an N64 emulator haha!

      I have installed this app, changed the permissions to 755, added mariokart ROM (the same one as in the video demo) to the correct folder (var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA) and I have added the gba_bios.bin to the Applications/gpSPhone.app/ folder.

      The problem I have: Everytime I load it, it says "You have an incorrect BIOS image". I have downloaded 4 BIOS's from different sites and no matter which one I try it will not work.

      Has anyone else had this problem?

      Is there something I am missing about the BIOS???

      FYI - Running fw 1.1.1

      I am getting the same controller problems where B=A, Start=B and A=Start. Anyone know a fix for this? Do I have the wrong GBA_Bios installed or is this just a bug?
