    When Posting Bugs

    Please fill out this form it will help us triage your issue if we know what operating system you use and what version of the emulator you're using: Expected behavior Actual behavior Steps to reproduce the behavior Crash bugs If this is a crash bug, and you have the time and inclination, please provide a symblic backtrace. Instructions for doing so are here. ROM details Which games are affected by the issue (please state if GBA or GB game): Which games, if any, are NOT affected by the issue (please state if GBA or GB game): Option details Video driver (simple, opengl): Sound driver (directsound, xaudio, openal, SDL): Build details Operating System (Windows, Mac, Linux (state distribution), etc.): If using Linux, specify if using xorg or Wayland: Version of code (pre-built binary version, or commit ref, or just "master"): Hardware details: If your joystick or gamepad isn't working in Linux, please try to troubleshoot using the information on this page: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Gamepad BEFORE filing an issue. We use SDL for joystick support, any problems will generally be an issue with SDL and NOT the emulator. If relevant, the joystick you are using and the drivers you are using for it:

    VisualBoyAdvance-m 2.0.1

    At this point, 64bit is the new norm. I don't see any real reason to have a 32bit build, most modern computers have a 64bit enabled chip that is capable of running a 64bit OS. That is just my feelings in the matter

    So you need help with vba-m, have issues you want to report. Well this is what you want to read. Support will not be given in private message. We have a forum for this. We also have a bug tracker on github for this as well https://github.com/visualboyadvance-m/visualboyadvance-m/issues Oh and if you want support for something that is labled SVN. don't bother. It's old and we moved to git.

    VisualBoyAdvance-m 2.0.1

    So sue me lol I was working late on that. trying to balance a full time job and working on vba-m isn't easy. But yeah, because of said job I didn't have much time to build a binary yet, I was working on updating my toolchain and making sure it was ready. I should have a windows binary available soon and Caelum should have a MacOs binary available soon. Solus already has a build in their repositories (beat archlinux to the punch ) Anyways I'm getting off work now, it'll be an hour (as of said message.) Before I can post the binary.

    [split] Save issues

    In future don't hijack others thread. Also I need more information than this. Do you have vba-m in a read only folder? Just saying that does jack squat for me.
  10. TheCanadianBacon

    using vbam-gx, unable to use controls when linked

    There is no vbam-gx save vba-gx which is a console specific port of vba-m

    A few issues about VBA-M

    Updated post topic to reflect that these aren't opinions but issues. I'll look into it later.

    The future for vba-m

    I'm surprised you really don't know. VBA-M is more than a modification, it's more of a spiritual successor to vba, it's also a project where it takes other forks (and there are a lot of them, and a lot of dead ones too at that and merged them into the project.

    Import save files from VBA

    If I recall correctly, importing old saves actually broke due to various changes and a slight rework. Basically you can't import from old vba 1.8 to vba-m (mind you this was before I stepped up to continue the project)

    Bug Tracker

    I'm sure all of you have noticed a new link in the portal related to a bug tracker. Well the news is this. I've installed a new infrastructure for bug tracking, to access it go to https://github.com/visualboyadvance-m/visualboyadvance-m/issues'>https://github.com/visualboyadvance-m/visualboyadvance-m/issues login details at the moment uses github, but I may include other authentication options if the need arises. I'll also will try and properly prioritize things in a better way. In all honesty sourceforge is shit and this new infrastructure will help in not only bringing better organization but also help attract new blood to the project. Already since the move to github we have had various contributions to the project and definitely excited to see stuff flourish. So if you have any active bugs in sourceforge project site. Please help in moving them to https://github.com/visualboyadvance-m/visualboyadvance-m/issues and help us get better organized.
