I’ll cover two different methods below, copying from a USB connected drive and from a NAS. Due to the fact that both BIOS and ROMs are copyrighted material, I’m unable to provide direct links to any such files. If you’re unsure what I mean, you can read a bit more about my take on the subject here. I can say, that both BIOS and some games can be found organized in archived packs. Using your favorite search engine, you may be able to find something by searching “bios archive” or “[game/system] pack archive” or something similar using some of these terms. BIOS File – BIOS Stands for Basic Input/Output System.
- ROMs are copies of GBA cartridges that the emulator reads to play the game.
- ES-DE will auto-update itself, so if you remove or add ROMs to your folders, it will automatically catch those changes and it will reflect in the app the next time you boot ES-DE.
- Higan supports many video, audio and input drivers.
There aren’t a lot of advanced features, and this can be a con for some. But for people who don’t want the extra bling, this is perfect. It’s simple and easy to set up and does not take up a lot of storage space. So you can pretty much use it with any hardware you might have. MGBA was designed for gamers that did not have a high-end gaming PC. You do not have to compromise on quality and gameplay if you don’t have a great PC.

Although it stated on the box that it is only compatible with the Game Boy Micro, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite, it is also compatible with the Game Boy Advance SP and Nintendo GameCube Bios (GCN BIOS) Game Boy Advance. Nintendo is one of the giants in the field of bit gaming and keeps it alive to date. Founded way back in 1889 in Kyoto, the company has always found innovative ways of staying and dominating the typical video game genre. After designing television-based gaming consoles for about a century, Nintendo decided to bring gaming to the hands of the players. Thus, Nintendo launched the game boy in 1989 that subsequently gave birth to an advanced colored version in 2003 .
I would have to make too many sacrifices to target even slower hardware, and at this point, there are already great emulators that target lower performance hardware. It sacrifices accuracy to run on slower systems. It’s still more accurate than any other Super Famicom emulator, but just barely. I’ve been able to play Zelda 3 at 80fps on my 1.6GHz Intel Atom with this profile.
DuckStation v Mednafen
In other words, this is for most modern Android devices. If you aren’t a fan of the GBA emu and you don’t want to run an emulator on your PC, then you can play Android games on your PC with AirDroid Personal. AirDroid personal is a multi-purpose app that allows you to use your Android phone from your PC. If you want a no-hassle, minimal emulator, then BatGBA is the best Gameboy emulator for you.
