    Yay i was worried this emulator might have died cos of no new releases.

    EDIT- I dont know if offical nes/famicon roms were working on earlier version of VBA but i just tried excitebike on this new release and it works. Still a little glitchy thou. Theres isnt no advantage to playing these roms as they take up to much space on a flash clash card. Anyone know if the people making VBA are gonna add NDS support to it?

    Before VBA it was called visualboy and emulated .gb and .gbc games then when the GBA came out they added support for that. It makes sense to add NDS support to it now that the NDS has come out.

    If I recall correctly the author just intergrated the GB code from the old emulator to the new one. I might be mistaken though because it has been several years since.

    changelog:

    * Cleaned the gba.cpp code a bit (too much changed to list them).
    * Changed all the clockticks management. Internal emulation speed should be more accurate now (fixes some games that crashed, like Advance Wars 2 or Tennis no Oojisama 2003), some other should have less slowdown/flickering (Breath of Fire 3's underwater level, Mario & Luigi Saga's intro). Added pseudo-support for bus prefetch (still need to check how it works for all the cases).
    * Added a 3 lines delay between the time a BG is enabled and the time it is displayed on screen (Lady Sia 2's blue lines on water level bug).
    * Put the supposed correct settings in DISPSTAT and lcdTicks on bootup when no bios are used (or when bios animation is skipped). (Earthworm Jim 2 now boots up).
    * Added a rom mirroring option in the 'Game Override' menu. Enabling it for the 'Mini'/'Classic' series makes the controls respond properly.
    * Bit 15 of WAITCNT is now read-only (Donkey Kong King of Swing doesn't crash on some levels anymore).
    * Bit 11 and 15 of SGCNT (FIFO Reset bits) are now cleared.
    * Corrected a bug introduced in VBA 1.8.0 which would prevent a game from accessing the 0x10000+ area of VRAM (Duke Nukem & Need for Speed 2's flickering is gone).
    * Added a 'pseudo-support' for GFX modes 6&7 (but no games should use them).
    * Soft Reset is now working properly (it was broken when the prefetch emulation was added).

    it seems legit, it was posted on that crapy pop-up site ngemu.com
    which host the vba site, but it was posted there after it was posted here....???
