One question, does the linux version not have a throttle feature ? I installed like demonstrated on your sourceforge page.

svn co https://vbam.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/vbam vbam
etc etc etc.

Will it be implemented ?

the vba-m gtk gui atm doesn't support a cheats dialogue buuut the sdl binary does support the cheats via commandline which I never really got into so I can't really help you there, I'm mostly a windows user that can get around linux when it comes to compiling and such Tongue

Hi there , you know the emulator Snes9x ??? well BearOSO , makeit an Awesome GTK Port called Snes9x-gtk , for debians users you can add the PPA Repository with the Follows command in a terminal :

gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv C71839136CF5CE97 && gpg --export --armor C71839136CF5CE97 | sudo apt-key add -

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bearoso/ppa/ubuntu lsb-release main #Snes9x-gtk" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'

sudo apt-get update

If you wanna PPA with VBAM Gtk :

gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv EEB23232 && gpg --export --armor EEB23232 | sudo apt-key add -

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ripps818/ppa/ubuntu lsb-release main #VisualBoyAdvance-Merge" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'

you can use the Synaptic or Adept or Kpackageit or the terminal with the follows commands :

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install snes9x-gtk vbam vbam-dbg

That is all
============================================
Snes9x-gtk Forum : http://www.snes9x.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.p...7084#27084

Well you can tell to BearOSO , to Help you with the GTK Version ???

Well i think the GVBAM need more things , for example when i Run "Emesene" if i run too Gvbam and load ROM , the ROM Ever Start , but i run Snes9x-gtk , works perfectly ^^

and i see the GTK Gui Need more Options what the emulator have , for Example "Cheats" ( GameShark , CodeBreaker , and more )

Well the "Bilinear" i think dont be a Filter in that list , i think the Bilinear and Bilinear Plus should be Options Above the Filter , to Use 2 Things for Example , in a Monitor with much Resolution , if you play in FullScreen i think the best options for Video in cases like that

1 - Activate Bilinear Plus , 2 - Use a Filter like 2xSai , and this make more better the Graphics ^^

Well this is just an idea , but if possible i like it ^^
Well i wanna make a Spanish Translations for the GTK Gui of VBAM , i make it translate to Spanish in Snes9x-gtk ^^

Im User of AMD64 ^^ (Now Using Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10)

Well GoodBye , Thanks for Readme , and i sorry for my bad english :$

RE: VisualBoyAdvance-M SVN877 [linux only release at this moment]

Hello,
as I use Fedora, I cant use the .deb file. Is there a way to generate a zip file with the necessary files? Like mupen64 does? (http://code.google.com/p/mupen64plus/)
It would be terrific Wink

Question In emulation of the internal clock in the Linux version.

(Translated from French by Google Translation ... sorry!)

Hello!

I copy here a message posted earlier on the forum ngemu.com, because I just see that there is a topic dedicated to the Linux version of VBA-M here. Smile

Quote:Good morning.

I use the Linux version of VBA-M, which works much better with me that VBA!

However, I find this Linux version is much neglected in comparison to the Windows version: It miss many features.

The feature that most needed in my opinion is the emulation of the internal clock of the GBA -called "real time clock" I think. The latter is essential to fully enjoy games like Pokemon.

Do you plan to put in the Linux version of VBA-M? Or at least add the essential functions of the type of emulation of the internal clock?


Texte original en français:

Bonjour.

J'utilise la version Linux de VBA-M qui fonctionne bien mieux chez moi que VBA!

Cependant, je constate que cette déclinaison Linux est nettement négligée en comparaison de la version Windows: Lui manquent beaucoup de fonctionnalités.

La fonction faisant le plus cruellement défaut selon moi est l'émulation de l'horloge interne de la GBA -nommée "real time clock" je crois. Cette dernière est indispensable pour profiter pleinement de certains jeux, dont les Pokémons.

Prévoyez-vous de mettre au niveau la version Linux de VBA-M? Ou au moins d'y ajouter les fonctions essentielles, du type de l'émulation de l'horloge interne?

RE: VisualBoyAdvance-M SVN877 [linux only release at this moment]

as i said on ngemu, the same basic functionality should be included in the linux ports, just a matter of ensuring the function is enabled on compile, and that the setting is set in the configuration for the emulator.

Sad RE: VisualBoyAdvance-M SVN877 [linux only release at this moment]

I installed the deb package available, ie the version SNV877.

Here's a screenshot of the Windows version SNV926, emulated by WINE, showing the menu where the option to emulate the internal clock appears (selected):
[Image: capture-vba-m-windows-svn926.png]

Now, here is a screenshot of the Linux version SNV877:
[Image: capture-vba-m.png]
We see the same menu where the option cited is not available this time, like many others too, not only in this menu...

I added the entry to the end of "[Core]", "emulator_type=0" under.
Unfortunately, it is deleted when I run VBA-M.
