TempGBA Version 1.45
Download Here: http://filetrip.net/d32346-TempGBA-1-45.html

A Game Boy Advance emulator for the Supercard DSTWO.
Based on:
gameplaySP (gpSP) 0.9 by Exophase, with help from various GBA developers
gpSP Kai unofficial 3.3 by Takka
The CATSFC GUI by ShadauxCat and Nebuleon (improving over BAGSFC) with language files contributed by the GBAtemp community for CATSFC

Change log (v1.45):

This version is a product of the ReGBA project, which separates cross-platform code from the DSTwo-specific code.

* Includes an open-source replacement for the GBA BIOS made from VBA-M's BIOS emulation code. Thanks to Normmatt for this! You can still use the Nintendo BIOS if you have it in the /TEMPGBA folder of your storage card, but if you extract all of the files in this release, you will replace it with Normmatt's BIOS.

* Works around a desynchronisation between the Direct Sound music channels and the PSG (Game Boy beeper) channels. If you load a saved state made in TempGBA betas 12-15 or versions 1.40-1.44, and the desynchronisation was below 186 milliseconds, it will be retroactively fixed. If it was already above 186 milliseconds, then the desynchronisation will fix itself after about an hour of play.

* Fixes a bug whereby uncompressed ROMs in zip files would not load if they were larger than 8 MiB.

* All high-level BIOS emulation is disabled except SWI 06h, Div, and 07h, DivARM.

* The plugin is now 290 KiB smaller, out of a previous 2237 KiB.

Under the hood:

* Assembler optimisations. Move some load-memory instructions so that they occur at least 4 cycles before the first instruction that will use the loaded value.

* Recompiler block scanning optimisations.

For TempGBA to work properly the SD card has to be formatted using SD Formatter from this website https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/

Game compatibility:
The GBATemp community maintains a compatibility list for TempGBA. You can see and edit it here: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/TempGBA_Compatibility

I tried!

I liked the interface, and have better performance (higher fps) than the stock gba emulator from SCTeam.

Golden Sun : Lost Age is a little choppy in the GBA Emulator, but is perfect with TempGBA!

Mario Advance 4 didn't work with GBA Emulator (save file corrupt), works with TempGBA, but have sound problems.

Sonic Advance 1 and 2 still not working.

I'll run few more tests now.
Thanks!

pretty weird you have to have the gba bios now, but i had it anyway so no real inconvenience to me

either way it's awesome that the gba emulator is getting the same treatment as the snes emulator

...

A GBA bios helps with game compatibility even more. Sure you can play a game without it on PC, but with a bios you'll find that the games run better. I don't know how, but I think it's because the bios has some initilizer command or possibly has all the information pertaining to the GBA CPU, and such allows the emulator to better interpret the games. Seriously, I have no idea and am making a few guesses, but ultimately a bios has really helped out when playing gba games on my pc. Better than emulating the bios as well.

The GBA BIOS is needed in TempGBA, but has not been needed in NDSGBA, because NDSGBA actually bundled it as part of the program.

Once I got the sources for the emulator, I was not aware of this detail until investigating an issue with multilanguage BIOSes --> http://gbatemp.net/threads/tempg ... age-15#post-4594726

Distributing this BIOS may not be allowed by the law - there is copyright law working against me, but interoperability law may counter that. Ultimately I decided to let the users obtain their BIOS to shift responsibility onto them and allow them to choose their BIOS.

Yes i got that problem too, apparently TempGBA beta 7 made it worse.
Use TempGBA beta 6 I have updated the link above.
You will immediately notice the improvements on Golden Sun The Lost Age.
