  how to perform a clean uninstall on Mac?
Posted by: zieme666 - 02-03-2020, 06:30 PM - Forum: General - Replies (2)

Hey guys, first of all I would like to thank all of you for the amazing work you have done with this emulator! However I was wondering if it is possible to delete the app completely from the system. I've messed around with the settings and suffer some display issues as a result. Nothing unfixable but I would like do reset mgba completely and start all over with my evil shader experiments Wink I am actually using a little helper tool called "AppCleaner" to find all files related to an application. In this case unfortunately mgba always remembers all of my previous settings even after I deleted all the files I could find. I found these two folders:

"Library/Saved Application State/com.endrift.mgba-qt.savedState" and "/var/folders/fw/5c9pl8t1497fmgwpqOp9lvvr0000gn/C/com.endrift.mgba-qt"

is there any other file which saves further information about the app or a cleaner way to delete mgba and start all over?

Thanks for helping out with this...

<p>Hey, I would like to get some help. I played a GBA game with the mGBA emulator and I tried to do a glitch but I instead jumped into an invalid location and now the game will crash as soon as I open it every single time. Can you guys help me? <img src="https://forums.mgba.io/images/smilies/angry.png" data-sceditor-emoticon="Angry" alt="Angry" title="Angry"> </p>

  Feature request: Configurable save directory
Posted by: Grondorr - 01-10-2020, 07:35 AM - Forum: Development - Replies (1)

<p>In many flash carts, there is a single save dir. I'd like the option to emulate this behaviour so that I can match the layout of my files and just keep the two in sync. Also, this way if I have multiple copies of the same ROM with the same file ane, but in different directories, I can have them save to the same file in the&nbsp;savedir. (I'm mostly looking to do this on 3DS and eventually switch.)</p>

  Help with Saves
Posted by: DengerousCurry - 01-01-2020, 10:46 AM - Forum: General - Replies (3)

Hey man! Love your emulator, first started using it back in college a few years ago. Recently felt like downloading shiny gold sigma (fire red hack) for nostalgia trip, and found I couldn’t change save state to flash 128k. I couldn’t do the game override thing I used to, and I couldn’t find the config.ini file. Any tips to make it happen?

Love your work though, forreal. Hope you had a good holidays, and have a happy new year! Looking forward to what you’ve got to say

  FPS issues playing Pokemon on Ubuntu
Posted by: dombol - 12-15-2019, 03:21 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

I have an Acer Aspire e5-574-592S laptop with Ubuntu 18.04 and I am trying to run mGBA to play Pokemon Fire Red, but I get 40 fps constantly.

I tried changing the audio buffer size to the minimum and also messed with my screen refresh rate and the other emulator settings, but I can't seem to solve this issue.

Can you guys help me?

  Transfering Saves from VBA to mGBA?
Posted by: Ethroptur - 11-22-2019, 10:02 AM - Forum: General - No Replies


I recently started using mGBA and I was hoping that I could transfer my VBA saves to mGBA. The .SAV file is in the same folder, with the same name as the ROM, however for some reason, whenever I boot up the game, the game starts anew, clearly failing to recognise the .SAV file as being present. Could it be thew file size? From what I understand, mGBA creates 32kb .SAV files, whereas the file in the folder is 128kb. If my presumption is correct, how could I go about changing the file size, if possible? If not, what could be causing the issue?
