I have managed to root and lag fix but thats about all. I would love to be able to play some oldschool games. Can anyone give me a step by step guide to doing this. I found some threads about it but they are really a bit too advanced. So maybe someone could start kind of basic.
Question concerning the gameboid app. What exactly is the difference between it and gameboid lite? It is just that you can save games in the paid app? I downloaded the rom for FF tactics advance and realized i couldn't save my progress, will this change if i spend the $4 on the paid version? Also are there any other perks to actually buying the application?
I've been playing Mario & Luigi: Superstar saga for a few minutes and I got to the part in Bowser's ship where you learn to fight as a team. After I break the barrel and get attacked by a Goomba, the game freezes at the battle transition. I've tried skipping this battle, but so far, every battle makes the game freeze at the battle transition. Playing the PAL version, by the way.
Gameboid and Nesoid are very good emulaters and they were developed by the same Creator. I'm trying to decide on which one to get but don't know which one is better. I noticed that both of them are rated 5 stars so its harder for me to decide. I'm wondering if anyone has download them and if they prefer a certain one. Also if anyone has good websites to download the games off of that would be great.
I downloaded Gameboid recently, and I definitely have a GBA_bios.bin in my SD card, but whenever I select it after clicking browse for bios it just says it has failed. Any Idea why?
And while I'm here I can play GBCoid fine (I am using lite) but for some reason I can't understand, the select button doesn't work. I have to use the virtual keypad as the Pulse doesn't have a hard keyboard.
I downloaded the gameboid app and i also got the bameboid bios bin. now it will load up and go to the gameboy screen. then it just stays there. how do i get games for it. i think they are called roms? where do i get them?
I have a HTC Wildfire and I bought Gameboid, (The emu for the GBA). I also downloaded a Pokemon rom and Gameboid is running a little choppy, its nothing serious, but not desirable, since its not smooth. Does anyone know what settings could smooth it out? I disabled audio.
I've been unsucessful in getting gameboid to run on my EVO. I installed gameboid lite. I install the bios.bin file. I go to search the Rom's on Rom Find, but everytime I try to download the rom I get an error message of failed to download message.
I recently got the Epic 4G and I am trying to get Gameboid to work on my Epic. It's telling me, "You MUST specify the BIOS file in the settings before you can play any games!" So I downloaded gba_bios.bin and saved it onto my SD card. How do I get the Bios mounted so I can actually use the application to play my ROMS?
I just found out about the Gameboid emulator and out of curiosity, I downloaded Pokemon Emerald. It runs great on my Droid X. Sound works perfectly, game runs at 100% of its normal speed.
I want to use cheats, though. It is my understanding that no one can figure out how to use the cheats feature correctly. Does it simply not work? I grabbed codes off of Gameshark's official website and they still don't have any affect on the game.
So what I decided to do was download VisualBoyAdvance for my PC, load the rom, use the cheats, make a save file and transfer it over to my droid. But I can't find any ROMs on the web to download for VBA that aren't corrupt. Somehow the ROM I have on my droid is fine; I downloaded it via DroidEmuRomGet. But if I try to grab the ROM off of my droid and transfer it over to my PC, I find that when I browse my droid using my PC, it doesn't show any of the files I can see using AndroZip... Even though the file extensions are the same.
My gameboid emulator had been working pretty well until yesterday. About 30 hours into my golden sun 1 game, the emulator crashed. I thought, no big deal, I'll just reload.
But now when I open the rom, my sav file is gone! It wasn't a save state as I am using the lite version, but I just lost over 30 hours of gaming. On my SD card it says I have a .sav file for the game, so does that mean I still have the sav file?
Also, has anyone had any luck running golden sun 2? I'm having problems similar to what I've read, which is that it crashes after the intro. If you've gotten it to work, what rom and bios are you using?
This app is great but if it can't run any decent RPG's than maybe it's not as good as I'd hope.
I have a Droid2 and downloaded Gameboid Lite. I then downloaded gba_bios.bin, and 2 separate versions of Pokemon Silver roms. gba_bios was selected just fine, but Silver won't run. I noticed you have to put the zipped .zip ROM, so i put both on my SD card and both are giving me the same result.
When I select the game, the screen changes, "Select ROM" at the top turns into "Gameboid Lite", and a notification in the notification area says "Gameboid Lite is running". I'm assuming this is where the game usually starts up and runs, but instead, after about 0.5-1 second, the screen goes back to Select ROM, and nothing happens, even though the notification says "Gameboid Lite is running".
I have no idea why it's not working. I downloaded a separate ROM file to see if it was a bad ROM, but same error with both. Any ideas?
I downloaded the gameboid lite version for my tattoo and have been having some problems. Most of the games freeze or have audio issues. Is this because I just have the lite version or because gameboid isn't formatted correctly for the tattoo?
Snesoid seems to solely rely on save state files and not on actual battery saves used on the original cartridges (.sav) files. These are also smaller in file size and using these instead of savestates makes it feel more like playing an SNES (not being able to use savestates) but relying on the games own way of saving your progress. These .srm battery saves are easy to find so it's much easier to load up my Super Mario Kart with special courses unlocked
Gameboid for GBA games uses the actual battery pack saves, .sav files...
So why isn't snesoid able to do this or am I doing something wrong? I use the Motorola Droid.
I know that Gameboid has an option for Cheats and a place to input them, but does anyone know how this works/what kind of cheats you can enter? I saw an older thread about moving the save to a computer and using VBA because there was no cheat option at the time. But now that there is, how does it work?
Downloaded the app, and realize that you have to make a folder and download gba_bios.bin and put it in that folder with games. However ive downloaded at least 10 different websites gba_bios.bin and when i try to open it, my computer( its a pc, not mac) doesn't know how to so i cant put it into the folder i made.
I have a DS and can play these games on it, but I would rather have them on my phone. That being said, knowing that the EVO battery life isnt the greatest, I'm concerned about how hard of a hit the battery would take if i played 1-2 hours a day. Can someone who uses either gameboid or gensoid fill me in on how well/bad the battery use is on these emulators?
So I've downloaded gameboid, I have the bios that ive setup(ive tried getting them from several different locations, same results). I have about 10 roms and not a single one runs, some of them get to a white screen where it looks like it wants to load it but it can't. SNES and NES emus work fine. Anyone else with a captivate have this problem?
