Did not expect this. now my Everdrive GB isnt needed.

Emulation is convenient, but it sux.

Why do you think it sucks ?
Probably because you can already play them using your Everdrive GB flashcart and  emulation on those emulators is very inaccurate. So, he's not wrong. It's better to emulate on more powerful systems, like the Wii for instance.

Pokemon Prism will be completely unplayable if get rid of your Everdrive GB, due to extremely poor emulation.

Except Pokemon, which gb / nes games have been reported as poorly or inaccuratly emulated on the gba ?

With Goomba Color? Well, many graphic-intensive GBC games run at 40-50fps, for example (Shantae, Every Witch Wendy (or what is called), Alone in the Dark, Fish Files, Rayman 2, Pokemon Crystal etc...). It's a noble emulator, but still a decade-old emulator that runs on an two-decades old ARM with just 17MHz of clock. Just for comparison, the GP32, which was sold during GBA lifetime, was an handled with an 166MHz ARM, and neither it could run an accurate GB emulator.

And let us nto talk about the SGB support, which is my primary way to play Game Boy games. Goomba Color just look for the first border it finds in the rom, without any other form of enhancement.

So its mainly a prob with the gbc & sgb games, it works perfectly for the black & white gb and nes games ?

  • The different save types are the physical chips that came inside the original games, you have to manually choose one if the save type isn't detected automatically.

Thank you for your answers. Is there some kind of a standart, like most of the game use one save type than the others ? And is there a web site i can check to see what chip each games used so then i will add the kind of chip in the filename of the rom to know which save type to select or are most of the games usually automatically detected ?

save type is usually detected fully automatically. Romhacks or translation patches might introduce saving issues (MIGHT!, not "will"). If that happens, you can try selecting a different save type.

So it should be left on EEPROM by default ?

EverDrive GBA / Noob questions :)
« on: September 12, 2018, 08:03 PM »
Hello,

Could anyone take the time to answer these questions :

1. What is the difference between all save types and why chose one more than the other : EEPROM, SRAM, FLASH64, FLASH128, OFF ?
2. What is the point of the Swap A/B option, is it there just for fun or is there a real purpose ?
3. Whats the point to have RTC OFF ? Does it saves up some battery if you turn if off ?

Thanks !
