Default So, who's tried NO$GBA?

It was on the front page. There's now a freeware version of NO$GBA. It's screaming fast, but more importantly, it supports link play. Only on the local machine, but it's still quite a feat. I was very impressed with it. It ran the games I tested it with at full speed on my 500 MHz box with no frameskip. Linkplay made it lag a bit with 2 GBAs emulated, and with 4, it was unplayable. I haven't gotten a chance to test it on my Duron box yet.

Wow, it IS fast. For some reason VBA doesn't run well on this machine (2.2 ghz) when it runs ok, not great, but ok on a 677 mhz Celeron. Haven't been able to figure that out..

This emulator is super fast. it runs with no slow down at all. On the minus, I wish I could change the battery save's directory so it could use the same SAVs I have in the VBA directory with no muss or fuss, and it doesn't seem to want to load ROMs out of a zip file, and the display seems to bright to me, but maybe I'm just nitpicking.

*edit*
No, washed out is a better description of the display than bright now that I look again...

Default Re: So, who's tried NO$GBA?

When I was in high school, I had a 286 that the school's network administrator gave to me for christmas one year.

I thought I'd be clever and try NO$GMB on it...

...I actually got Tetris to run, at about 3fps, with sound coming through the PC squeaker.

I was amused.

I will check out NO$GBA when I get home... what are thoughts on it as compared to VisualBoyAdvance?

Ah, that helps. Never mind. I didn't even notice that option there.

It barely runs on a P233.
I'm thinking maybe a P2-400 or up.

it's blazing fast, but for some reason, i can't get my controller to totally work with it. every button is functional except for d-pad up and down, making the emulator totally useless. the PSX pad works with every other app, so the problem must lie in No$gba

Won't run for shit on a P233 - starts okay, but crashes a couple of minutes later. I'm willing to bet you need a P450 at least.
