  • 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

      great job

      everything works for me--so far only have final fantasy tactics (really laggy) and zelda

      however B==A A==?

      how hard would it be to make the screen larger?

      anyways, looking forward to updates

      IMO, I dont like this so far. The game pad looks like it was made in paint. Theres no sound, and the game play screen is sooo small. Ill stick with NES emulator until this gets further along.

      Im glad they managed to make the emulator at least.

      The beta is...stable, but not ready for the emulation world.

      Can't Wait for the official v1.0 of this. Hopefully they'll smooth out the issues:
      *breath in*:
      • Added sound.
      • Fix the graphics (the buttons are ULGY, too big and not spaced out enough)
      • Fix the bugs - for example...the B button is the "A" button for me now and the A button is as useless as horse $#!t.
      • Increase Frame Size and frame rendering speed.
      • Better GUI (maybe like the NES rom - easy to use and easy to save )
      • Make the Save functions accessible (yes - you can't save your gave even when the have the DAMN function. Because the gpSPhone options are accessible only when u press save when you have no game loaded...wth? )
      • MulitiTouch Support with games that demand more would be nice and also IS required!!


      All in all - im very happy i've got it installed and working on my iphone. I cannot WAIT for updates. This application is pure awesome.

      Im so glad im nearly going to scrap all my 8 bit games. (excluding kirby that NES game was and still is the bomb)

      Version 0.0.5 is out! They updated so many things and it runs much much smoother now, with sound.

      SO WHERE CAN WE GET THIS NEW VERSION???

      Oh i figured it out, you get it from there website and you jsut replace the old files with the new version.

      Its pretty nice now, no more black lines but it runs really slow and i found that certain buttons dont always work, but still great for being 0.0.5

      thanks for the update!

      Awesome with sound already. That'll be effecting the frame rate.

      Hopefully in later versions they'll fix it up!

      I must be doing something wrong.

      I've got the app. loaded and the bios.

      But I can't seem to get a rom to play. I've tried a few but the emulator screen is just blank when I select them.

      the new update looks great! I havent tried the sound yet cuz I'm in class, but I suppose its not at its best since the video can be pretty delayed.
