To play a game, just select it from this list, then select one of your downloaded cores to load it with. If you’re wondering where the cores for hit consoles like the Playstation 2 and GameCube are, the PS2 one is unavailable in Retroarch, while the GameCube one isn’t particularly stable. You’re better off finding standalone emulators for those consoles. There are some games that contain two save codes, but only work with one specific save-type. There’s no reliable heuristic for picking the correct save-type.
Alright, I was able to download it but when I try to load a rom it says "failed to load content" I think it might be because it’s a .7z file. To be fair, though, all standalone GBA emulators out there can be set up pretty quickly without any hassle. We don’t make those builds; we don’t know anything about them; and we don’t support them. One user got past this by first switching on one of the switches, then pausing the game, and sort of switching on an imaginary switch in the middle of the two switches while manipulating the frame advance hotkey.

- ROM World is the next name on our list of Best ROM sites.
- It is an amazing website having a humongous collection of ROMs and Emulators.
- There are other titles, of course, with other major titles such as this site Fortnite and Grand Theft Auto V available to play through the emulator, along with a host of other games.
We recommend downloading metadata and images for your games for that professional look. We didn’t download all the images when given the option, but box art is a must, and ‘Fan Art – Background’ means that when you highlight the game in your library you get a nice big background image behind it. The PS3-style XMB interface of Retroarch isn’t bad, but it’s certainly not flashy. It doesn’t support box art or other images for your games, and can feel a little sterile. Each core has its own set of graphics settings that you should play around with and tweak in accordance with how you like your games to look, and the power of your PC.
I haven’t played a huge variety of games but Kirby and Street Fighter II Turbo have worked well for me so I don’t really see mGBA as bad. Emulation is one of the highlights of the PSVita and emulator updates are always welcome. This time around, mGBA, one of the best, if not the best, GBA emulators, has been updated to version 0.6.0. Your games should now be in your Launchbox library, neatly presented with their box art and any extra images you may have downloaded.
I haven’t used it, but I don’t trust multi-system emulators as a rule. Especially after my many bad experiences with RetroArch.
See, gbatek says that when two points are touched, that the hardware appears as if the average of the two points is actually pressed. But the game expects you to touch them at not-exactly-the-same-time.
It’s also worth mentioning that higan is the first multi-emulator that features cycle-based emulation for every single component of the GBA system. At the same time, higan is easy to set up and configure, and it’s relatively undemanding in terms of software requirements. What really distinguish the mGBA emulation tool from others are its high performance, accuracy, speed, and portability. It’s very unlikely that you will experience any sound or graphics glitches while using this emulator. It’s compatible with Linux, MacOs, Windows, and Vita, which enables you to install and use it on different platforms.
Thankfully, us linux users have a good gba emulator now. But I distinctly recall the ePSP emulators working with 100% speed and decent compatibility, whereas the mGBA and retroarch’s GBA cores had 100% compatibility and questionable speed. Well, writing about almost everything is the job of a news website really.
