    Holy crap, mucho confuso. Now were talking about a Gameboy player? weird... Anyway, i wasnt aware that the GBA had any GB/C hardware in it, and that the 16mhz CPU did all the talking, so a perfect GBA emu would entail perfect GB/C emulation. But, take into account, that this is not an ordinary emu, but something that uses GP32 hardware to do something to EXACTLY like a GBA does. <- I just confused the shit out of myself :wacko: Also, is it possible for the GP32's serial port to act like a GBA link-port-thingy??

    I can W00T for joy at gameboy emulation, but the skeptic in me shakes his head at GBA playability for the GPthreetwo.

    Why?

    Because the PC emulation scene is thriving as always, and the best these hard-working developers have come to GBA completion is... well, just look at the numbers from NGEmu, an accurate, up-to-date next generation emulation source:

    I'm not an expert by any means, but I think we've all heard from developers before on this subject. Can we still be skeptical?

    (Because I am.)

    Well there is a difference in that the GP32 and GBA has very similar processors...

    But I am still skeptical too.

    GP Advance is not an emulator, it is a director/converter, it just directs some of the GBA calls to be run on the GP32 processor. Ie, it is living on the GP32 hardware. This is not possible for PC emulators to do since they are using x86-processors.

    £4.40 here for checkout operation. I guess you must be young or working at a lousy shop.
