Based on VBA-M, GBA.emu focuses on low audio/visual latency. It achieves this by offering quality BIOS emulation, meaning games run with high accuracy. Nostalgia has a number of emulators available, and their Gameboy Advance variant is another solid option. The user interface here is nothing to write home about but is functional. Since the UI is the same across all of Nostalgia’s family of emulators, you know what you’re getting into. If you can look past the lackluster aesthetics, there’s a solid GBA emulator to be found.

A bootleg ROM is an unauthorized or illegal copy of a game that is distributed without the permission of the copyright holder. Bootleg ROMs are often created by reverse engineering the game’s code from a legitimate copy of the game and then distributing it online without the copyright holder’s permission. As a result, Romhacks are often created by more experienced modders and hackers. This is because ROM hacks often make use of features or glitches that are specific to a particular emulator or game console. I’ve also seen Hunt Down the Freeman being referred to as a fangame even tho it looks more like a HL2 mod to me. I actually don’t think I’ve played a Mario fangame in years, so the distinction is definitely there at least in my mind.

Since many Atari 2600 supported two players, it is only fitting that the GBA recreation does the same with only one copy of the game.

The USB pins are GND, D-, D+, 5V while the UART are GND, TX, RX, 3.3V. The original post says to not connect the 3.3v up but I only got 0kb files when I did a copy to the USB without it. This should apply to all Arcade1Up Gen 1 boards but the ones listed are the only ones which use MAME/FBA and so have easily usable ROMs.
