    ipod gpSPhone v0.04 released! GBA Emulation on the iPhone and iTouch!

    One of DCEmus Finest Coders ZodTTD has added a new console to the list that he has released homebrew and emulators on.

    Today sees the release of the Worlds first Game Boy Advance Emulator for the iPhone and iTouch.

    Firstly heres a Video of the emulator in action:



    Heres the full release details:

    It requires a bit of installation.
    - Unzip the gpSPhone.app directory to /Applications
    - Change the "gpSPhone" file permission to 0755
    - Place gba_bios.bin (GBA BIOS) in /Applications/gpSPhone.app/
    - Place roms anywhere on iPhone / iTouch but preferabbly in the default file selection directory: /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA

    Today I have released gpSPhone .. ...This is a GBA emulator based on my port of gpSP to the GP2X. gpSP is a great GBA emulator written by the talented Exophase. I ported it to the GP2X, and added an (iPhone/iTouch compatible) dynarec. By using this coding technique, fullspeed performance of GBA is obtained on the iPhone/iTouch.

    Things that still need work:
    - Compatibility is lower than usual but many games are playable. This is being worked on as a high priority.
    - Sound output is disabled, but it IS being emulated. So performance will only get better as this feature gets worked on.
    - Auto frameskip might be off. Switch to manual frameskip if needed.
    - GUI and instructions need a lot of work.

    Please leave feedback here and if you find something that sounds like it really should be implemented at this point, let me know.
    It will soon be integrated with Installer.app.

    EDIT 3: Updated to v0.0.4 found
    ...Fixes bug introduced when changing default directory to /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA ...Now files will show up and you can finally try this out.

    EDIT 2: Updated to v0.0.2
    ...Fixes minor installation bugs. If you had problems installing v0.0.1 this will fix it. Also changed default directory to /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA

    I'm having a hard time believing this.. I know gpSP by Exophase is an amazing piece of work but what are the iTouch specs? I just had the assumption that any iPod would have lower end specs since all they really do is play music, videos, very low spec games. I wouldn't believe this if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.. Amazing work!

    iPhone's CPU is way more powerful than PSP's.

    This isn't using my ARM dynarec because zodttd couldn't get it working for some reason. He's using the preliminary one he did for GP2X. Once he switches to mine it'll be a lot more efficient.

    I haven't quit gpSP, just put it on hiatus for a while.

    Games like Super Mario Advance 3, Riviera and Sword of Mana actually DO work in gpSP, believe it or not. If they don't work for you then you're using the faulty BIOS. Don't argue with me, it's true; the sooner you accept this the sooner you can move on.

    how would you control a gba emulator on in iphone?
    I can't see this being more than a novelty item as there are no buttons.
