    I like that. It would feel more natural to me than to have a double button for certain games, like Metroid.
    If you are using vba8/vgbc8 there is an option in setting that allow you to map camera button to L/R button and set it to auto fire.

    well, then you have to wait until I implement such function but I will probably implement it in VBA10 first.

    River city ransom EX use A+B for jump.
    In Contra Advance, when I am holding B for firing I can't use A for jump. Only one button at the moment.

    Dear illidanx,

    Could you, please, clarify one question. When I am running Pokemon (2 generation - gold silver crystal) - turbo mode works fine (set frame skip param to 4 the result fps is about 45), but when I am trying to enable the same turbo mode on Pokemon (3 generation fire red leaf green or emerald) - fpps falls down to 10-15 value. Is it caused by hardware? I tried on bouth vba8 and vba10 on my Lumia 830 and got the same result.

    The nature of turbo mode is that the app will emulate more instructions per frames, which needs more power. When the cpu reaches its limit and the app try to emulate more per frame, the frame rate drop downs. In 2nd generation pokemon games, the cpu requirement is lower, so the cpu does not reach its limit.

    Sorry for the late response but yes, as someone else already mention, that will be usefull for games like Metroid and phones that doesn't have a physical camera button.
    Will wait for VBA10 then. Thanks!

    I've got a strange problem with emulator and I hope that someone know how to fix it.

    When I play any rom everything seems to run fine but sometimes I encounter a little, strange freezes. They're just for two or maybe three seconds, when everything stops and then again runs fine. I've not met any other problems like with sound or something else but just like this one. Well, it looks a bit like when game trying to autosave but I already disabled this option (I hope so), so then I totally dont know how to solve it. I've tried to change some settings like enable 30 Hz refresh rate etc. but it didn't help.

    My phone is Nokia Lumia 735. I've also observed that this problem is not occuring when I'm playing on Purple Cherry emulator. There is everying runs fine without any freezes but I really want to use VBA8, because of some better resolutions for me comparing to his rival, like faster access to making quicksaves, etc.

    I'd be grateful for any help because I couldn't be able to find any solution via google. :(

    You are storing the app on SD Card? By default, his app automatically create a snapshot every 1 minute or so. That may be the cause of the freeze. You can try disabling it by go to settings and check Manually create snapshot title.

    Thanks for your answer. :)

    Yes, I was storing it on SD Card. Disabling it didn't help BUT moving whole app from SD Card to a device storage did it well at least and problem seems to be solved. :D Later I'll try to experiment with this further but at first glance seems that it's something wrong with SD Card.

    Anyway, problem is solved. Thanks you again. :)

    Hello, is there a real time clock option anywhere in vba8 for windows phone? The internal battery error in Pokemon emerald is driving me nuts.

    I'm not sure what version of emerald you are playing but real time clock is supposed to be enabled automatically for emerald. I played it myself and have never encountered the error.

    Thanks for responce. I wonder why my old Nokia N95-2 with 332 MHz Dual ARM 11 processor released at 2008 launched gba Pokemons (emerald, leaf green and so on) without such a sharp decrease of fps and much smoother and faster than my Lumia 830 released at 2014 with much more powerful processor? Technological degradation, isn't it?

    Vba8 and vba10 are based on vba which was written for desktop. Vba is all about emulation accuracy, speed is the last thing it cares about.

    Am I understand right, that vba will be more productive on x86 processors? On my old Pentium 2 with 333 Mhz and 128 Mb RAM it still works fine, without any decrease of fps =)

    There are some x86 aseembly codes in vba that can not be used on ARM phone and have to be replaced by c++ equivalent. Probably that's the reason.

    How do I find out what version I have? I downloaded the rom from this result, which should be the first if you search "pokemon emerald rom" in google: "Pokemon - Emerald Version (UE).zip - Roms". The rom is from doperoms. com.
    Edit: It appears to be version 10. Or something like that. At least that's what the vba emulator said when it said it couldn't open the file.

    I'm playing Pokemon Yellow, but I have encountered a problem. I have no clue what the " start button " is or how to assign one. Same for the select button. I'm using vba8.

    Hello to everyone.
    I've found 2 issues on VBA10 app:
    * exporting saved files will cutoff "+" character (if original rom file name contains that plus "+" char);
    * can export but can not Import save files (.sgm file), error: "Could not find a matching ROM name".
    where I can submit this issues? maybe some bugtracker?

    Hi,

    Is the DS emulator still impossible?

    I have already finished all Pokemon gen 3 games and I really want to play Pokemon gen 4 onward games.

    Hey everybody.
    As I understood, @illdanx has gone and there is no support for vba8/vba10/snes8x emulators.
    But currently I've found Win64e10 emulator that has VERY similar interface to VBA10

    I think that @illdanx now works on Win64e10 with MobWi team, or @illdanx just give sources of vba10 to them

    Well, thanks for the news! I really like what illdanx made with his apps so I hope he's good.

    Since you showed a capture of the Win64e10 emulator I'm assuming that you've tried it. Can you tell me how is it?

    Cheers.
