what problems do you have with vba? try no$gba since it's freeware to play games now...
let me guess...you can't play the NES classics on it or fed up with the battery detection problems?

> 1.cant save games
get the .nfo file and see the savetype then select it accordingly...the auto function doesn't work with new games because (wild guess) the emulator uses crc32 to detect what rom it uses and adjusts the save type accordingly (think of a looooooong list with all gba game names and save type and the emu looking it up). New games after the current version are not included so....

> 2.cheats dont work
I'm not sure about this one. You sure you are modifying ram and not rom?

> 3.some games dont work
Well, nothing much you can do about that. Prolly the NES series. Then again, just get the PC emulator and play the original!!!

> 4.savestates always ,ALWAYS makes games unplayable
I found savestates are VERY reliable. Just don't close the emu just right after you save state, it won't work :(

Your computer is less than 700MHZ. VBA requires at least 700MHZ to run decently.

What the hell other features you want? VBA is very complete...

Prolly your best bet, altough playing it with a small window doesn't appeal me.

My laptop is 2.2 Ghz and it doesn't run well. :P

Well, you can resize the window so that it's quite big.

The strange thing is this 2.2 Ghz laptop that in every way is better than the 667 mhz PC I used to use is slower with VBA than the 667 mhz PC. I don't undestand it at all.

I have a 2.4GHz computer, and VBA is still rather slow. This is what works for me: Turn off any kind of throttle...disabled auto frame skip and set your frameskip to 2. There aren't as many FPS as I'd like, but it runs in real time and is very playable...even with the 2xSaI filter on.

Something's wrong...what resolution, which video card and what bitdepth are you running VBA on?
Also MOVE THE MOUSE AWAY FROM THE VBA SCREEN. It kills performance.

probably cause the newer processors dont support these type of programs as much as older processors
