About this game

Advanced open-source GBA emulator based on VBA-M with a minimalist UI and a focus on low audio/video latency, supporting a wide variety of devices from the original Xperia Play to modern devices like the Nvidia Shield and Pixel phones.

Features include:
* High-level BIOS emulation, no BIOS file needed
* Supports the .gba file format, optionally compressed with ZIP, RAR, or 7Z
* Cheat code support using VBA-M-compatible files (.clt extension), don't use any "Master" codes since they aren't needed
* Configurable on-screen controls
* Bluetooth/USB gamepad & keyboard support compatible with any HID device recognized by the OS like Xbox and PS4 controllers

The bike racing game Motocross Challenge is included courtesy of developer David Doucet. No other ROMs are included with this app and must be supplied by the user. It supports Android's storage access framework for opening files on both internal and external storage (SD cards, USB drives, etc.)

The interface and performance are incredible. I have bought several apps from this guy and they all are great. I had an issue for a bit and contacted the guy about it. He spent all day going back and forth with me until the problem was solved. Now I can go back to using my favorite app. By far my favorite gba emulator!

Probably the best GBA on here but unfortunately missing vital features for my taste 1. I like to be able easily move the screen position and/or size 2. I like to be able to control the opacity of onscreen buttons so I can make them just about visible, that way they can even overlap the screen without much distraction 3. I like to be able to position my A/B buttons separately or atleast be able to switch their positions

It used to be that you were able to hide the L+R buttons and keep the A+B buttons visible.

What's new

* Load folders using a separate thread to prevent the app from not responding if the storage medium is slow like a network share
* Auto-save backup memory to disk as it's written
