  Gamepad bug?
Posted by: Renoa - 09-09-2015, 11:15 PM - Forum: General - Replies (10)

Hello again, I recently bought a cheap generic gamepad for my emulation needs. Noticed a gamepad bug with the latest nightly, I tried remapping the gamepad buttons to match the GBA controls layout, but for some reason, L1 doesn't work, the R1 and R2 buttons act like they've been mapped on the right and left D-Pad keys. I'm using the Ubuntu build.

  A few questions on settings
Posted by: Damned - 09-06-2015, 03:40 AM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

Just downloaded it and have a few questions on the settings.

Am I supposed to leave the "sync to video" option unchecked but the "sync to audio" option checked to avoid screen tear and crackling audio?

Is the "lock aspect ratio" option supposed to output the proper aspect ratio of the GBA (Not the internal resolution, what one would actually see playing on real hardware)?

Should I change the FPS to 59.97 (native) to get more accurate emulation of the frame rate?

Is there no way to define custom paths for now?

Also, for some reason the FPS setting unchecked itself. Bug?

  Compilation on Windows
Posted by: calm64 - 09-04-2015, 04:01 AM - Forum: General - Replies (5)

Hello Folks,

I'm currently no good at these Cmake and make stuffs for compilation, I only use VS for compilation. but when I decided to compile windows build for Mgba it seems that VS support is not available right now  Sad

so, I'm having a bit of problems in compilation. I'll explain it in steps : (I followed the steps at Github)

step 1:

pacman -Sy mingw-w64-i686-{cmake,ffmpeg,gcc,gdb,imagemagick,libzip,pkg-config,qt5,SDL2}

got all the dependencies as according to the code.

step 2:
git clone https://github.com/mgba-emu/mgba.git

I had already did this step on Git-shell.

step 3:
cd mgba

after some research, it seems that this code goes to the directory of the mgba source code, did it properly.

step 4:
mkdir build

This make a new folder called build, It was a success,

step 5:
cd build

Enters into build, no problem for now. Smile

step 6:
cmake .. -G "MSYS Makefiles"

here's where the problem starts, after entering this virtually nothing happens. Sad

I expected it to produce some message but, it didn't do anything.

step 7:

after step 7, it produced this error message:  make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

apparently it was because cmake didn't work properly, any input for help is appreciated. Smile

  Wii port audio crackling
Posted by: fox_whisper85 - 09-04-2015, 02:11 AM - Forum: General - Replies (4)

Since the port thread has been increasing in no. of posts and my questions seemingly ignored, for some reason, I will ask here instead; this way, I won't clog up that other thread, so as of the most recently nightly build of the Wii port, audio crackling is present still, however, the RetroArch Wii port fares better in the audio department, but ultimately breaks support for 32 MB ROMs for unknown reason. On the other hand, the standalone version runs all GBA game sizes, even the large ones, but what I want to know is, will there ever be the same audio improvements from the Libretro core carried over to the standalone Wii port? I am grateful for this emulator, it's the best the Wii has ever seen, I personally don't like how RetroArch has evolved with 1.2.2 being broken beyond all recognition on the Wii, hence my preference to the simpler port, I merely hope the few minor issues can be resolved in due time. Big Grin

  Unofficial wii build -test-
Posted by: askot - 09-03-2015, 11:34 PM - Forum: General - Replies (12)

Hello to all mgba users,

This test build is for wii platform, I've added a few and new options from command line.
Also, I added endrift's fix for audio crackling.

New to this emulator too:
-Set aspect ratio to 3:2 on 4:3 video, looks like a GBA Player on old CRT TV -yeah I get one.
-Load 32 MB roms on memory.

These new options are from arguments:
-Auto load game
-Send custom button for A,B,L,R in Classic Controller
-Set filter mode to: Unfilter, Filter, Filter Sharp and Filter Soft

So you need a Front end to use it, like Wiiflow or from meta.xml file something like this:

<arg>sd:/roms/My rom.gba</arg>

Or wiiflow:

You can find binary dol file here: https://mega.nz/#!ycA2VAQJ!3NiImhbk0F5bv...5a2kZ5gi54

  Native Scaling
Posted by: ShalokShalom - 09-01-2015, 07:03 PM - Forum: General - Replies (4)

Hi there Smile

Is it possible to offer native scaling in mGBA, like the Dolphin does it for GC and Wii games ?

  White flickering on Ubuntu (15.04) port
Posted by: Renoa - 08-28-2015, 06:12 AM - Forum: General - Replies (2)

As the title implies, there's this weird white flickering going on while playing games (tested Mega Man Zero 2, Metroid Fusion, and Pokemon FireRed) on the Ubuntu port. I'm using the latest stable build (0.3.0).

  Suggestions for the Wii version
Posted by: MrProtein - 08-27-2015, 03:31 AM - Forum: General - Replies (8)

Just found out about this, and I have to say I am quite impressed at how well the performance is on Wii - I honestly thought that VBA GX/VBA Next was as good as it's gonna get.

I understand this emulator is still in its very early stages (which is actually amazing considering how the performance is already better than VBA GX), so I just thought I would suggest some possible features for future releases.

* Brightness Control/Gamma Correction - as we all know, most GBA games were made with very bright colors so that they could be seen on the original unlit GBA. Both the Game Boy Player and the Wii U Virtual Console somewhat compensates for this by darkening the image a little - it would be nice to have that option for this emulator as well

* libwiigui - just for continuity/similarity with other emulators like Snes9xGx and FCEUGx. I can understand if this might not be feasible however if it takes up too much memory and could hinder game performance.

* custom button configurations - self-explanatory (apologies if this has already been implemented)

* custom border support - y'know, like the ones that the GB Player had on the GameCube.

* screen size options - right now it seems to default to 4:3, which is not the GBA aspect ratio (3:2). Also the edges are currently cutoff on CRT's.

* 240p support - for CRT users

* this one is rather ridiculous and I'm not sure if it's even possible, but it would still be cool nonetheless:
GBA-to-GCN adapter support? On the GB Player, you could use an actual GBA as a controller if you had the GBA-to-GCN adapter (you had to turn on the GBA and hold start on it while it's connected to the GCN).

  mGBA GB & GBC emulation
Posted by: MightyJo - 08-23-2015, 09:34 AM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

Are you planning on making mGBA emulate the Game Boy line as well? Or are you simply aiming for a near perfect GBA emulator?
Also would it help you if someone compiled a compatibility list and if yes how would you like it organised?
