I looked this up, OK so I played GBA games for years on VisualBoyAdvance-M, great emulator with a lot of features including a debugger and everything, been around a long time. But apparently one called NO$GBA is better for programming and debugging purposes if you don’t just want to play games, in fact it seems it originally started out as a debugger and later had emulation added too, but it is not quite as popular for playing games. Also there is a newer emulator called mGBA which is more accurate and faster but does not have as many features yet, but people really like it. You should probably try all 3.

There are other emulators too for GBA but they are not as good, at least according to what I read, those 3 are the only 3 you should bother trying.

OK so here are official download links for all 3 of them to get the latest versions:
NO$GBA (currently version 2.9a, get the debug version for programmers)
VisualBoyAdvance-M (currently version 2.1.0 Security Fix)
mGBA (currently version 0.6.3)

VisualBoyAdvance-M and mGBA are both cross-platform while NO$GBA seems to be Windows-and-DOS-only, all 3 should be fine for you in Windows 7, but in Linux Mint, well you can use 2 out of the 3 but NO$GBA supposedly is the best for programming and debugging. And emulators have different interfaces and feature sets on different operating systems, I know VisualBoyAdvance-M for instance is definitely different on Windows and Linux. You might be able to use Wine to run the Windows version of NO$GBA in Linux but Wine is rather a pain to get working.

The easiest one to install on Linux Mint is mGBA, there are prebuilt binaries for Ubuntu there and you just need to pick the one for the Ubuntu version that matches your Linux Mint version. VisualBoyAdvace-M has WxWidgets, SDL, and GTK+ versions, not sure which one is best, they currently have the WxWidgets as the default version but I have found on Windows that the SDL version of VisualBoyAdvance-M is the best on Windows, at least the last time I checked. NO$GBA is supposed to be the best one for programming and debugging though and for that one, running it from Windows is best, unless you are really good at using Wine. Don’t even bother with the DOS version of NO$GBA since it lacks programming and debugging features.
Newcomer's Board / Re: Datacrystal page history wiped on a few pages
« Last post by yetisyny on August 14, 2018, 04:40:34 pm »
This one looks perfectly fine to me, unless what the history shows is not really what happened:!_Forbidden_Memories:ROM_map&action=history

This other one, though, it shows you as creating the page with its current contents, in September of last year, and no modifications since then:!_Dark_Duel_Stories:RAM_map&action=history

So I assume you are saying that what those 2 pages show as the history is not actually the history? Is that the problem? Maybe you could please clarify by saying exactly how the history shown on those pages is not accurate? Or did the problem go away? Or is it showing me a different version of the webpage than what you see? I can’t login to the wiki so I see what people who are logged out and unable to edit anything see.

I have the same problem, I have never been able to login to the DataCrystal wiki here. Sometimes I get the error message “There seems to be a problem with your login session; this action has been canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Go back to the previous page, reload that page and then try again.”

Other times I get the error message “Incorrect username or password entered. Please try again.” I get this second error message if I delete cookies for the DataCrystal wiki like people here suggest.

In both cases, trying again gives me the same error message again.

My username is not a problem, is it? It is just 8 alphanumeric letters. It is possible that my password for romhacking dot net might not work on the DataCrystal wiki since maybe the MediaWiki software that the wiki runs on has different password requirements than the main site. I might be using characters in my password that are not allowed in MediaWiki passwords but are allowed in romhacking dot net passwords. Or maybe the password lengths allowed are different?

Obviously something is wrong. It might even be possible that I don’t have an account on the wiki despite having one on romhacking dot net, since I have not had a romhacking dot net account for very long, just about a month or so. Do I have to wait longer before I am able to have a wiki account or something? According to the DataCrystal wiki I ought to have an account there with the same login as my romhacking dot net account if I have a romhacking dot net account.

Anyway I have valuable information I can add to the wiki. Not very much, just a little currently. But I have looked at and tested Pro Action Replay codes for at least one SNES game and found things in the memory of the game that are not in the RAM map of that game on the wiki. So I could improve the RAM map by adding that data. And a bunch of games do not have RAM maps at all, I could at least start them by using a little bit of data from verified Pro Action Replay codes I have tested, this would be better than having no information at all about their RAM layout.

But to do that I need to be able to edit the wiki here and right now I can’t login to it, I get those 2 different errors depending on if I clean up my cookies or not. I can see from the wiki history that some people are able to edit it successfully but it is not terribly active, I guess since a lot of us are having trouble. Really a shame. Apparently for mantidactyle, cleaning up the cookies was able to solve it for them, but for me, it doesn’t accept my username and password even after cleaning up my cookies, local storage, cache and so on, all that does is change which error message I get. I still get an error message no matter what.

I'm really shocked this was even possible for NES games in general, it opens up a lot of possibilities for future NES projects.

Thanks for your fantastic work, and hope don't bother you, if me translate to Spanish.
In addition, ask you if it is possible integrate PSX opening. (I create this video opening in format msu, tested in Zeldas 3 msu version)
I tried contact with DarkShock, creator MSU-1 without luck, you would be my last hope.

Man, I tried this HD pack and I LOVED it! Sure there were a few things here and there, but overall this is AWESOME! I'm already making videos of this. Hopefully I can complete it ASAP because it is THAT good.

I 100%ed this on PS4.

It crashed 19 times during the course of the playthrough.
Woah, hey! I was very surprised to see this on the front page and even more surprised to see that you had translated it! (I do recall you saying that you weren't going to; glad you changes your mind  ;D ). i enjoyed the first one and am looking forward to buying, dumping, patching, and playing a copy of this.

Oh, and congratulations to you and your fam regarding your niece :3 May she bring much joy to all of you.
