    Default GBA Emu For DC (Visual Troy Advance) Continued

    Well, since the previous topic on this subject seems to be losing the first two or three posts on each new page, I decided to lock it, and start a new one. Please continue any discussions that were going on in the old topic.

    BTW - Just for future reference, the original topic can be found at THIS LINK

    Ok please hang on a sec, nobody else sees the lack of RAM as an important problem? (Sorry but I didn't read all the 9 pages of the previous thread)

    It is and it isn't an important problem. It has already been discussed, but here's a short breakdown:

    This emu will not load any rom larger than 8 megabytes. However, there are quite a few commercial roms that weigh in at 8 megs or less.
    In addition, I have never seen any homebrew GBA games that weigh in at more than 8 megs.

    And if the emu can cut some bloat out of it and get down to about 3mbs loaded then will be able to fit 12MB roms.

    Another method i've been learning about is try loadin the emulator into the sound ram and use the other 16 for roms.

    Hi

    Or Troy can try to use the Dreamcast's ARM to help emulate the GBA CPU. I guess that this can be done, take the example of GEM a Game-Boy (B&W) emulator for the MSX.

    http://www.tni.nl/products/gem.html
    i thank you Patriek Lesparre for this GREAT GB emu for the MSX. THANKS

    Yeah, the newest GBA emulator for GP32 is doing that, running most of the ARM code directly on the arm processor of the GP32.

    I am not familiar with the ARM on the dreamcast, other than using the precompiled libs and even that is pretty limited.

    I have had a lot more changes in my life in the last couple of days, so I probably will be away for awhile, except for when I am at work. But I will continue to work on the emulator as time allows.
