Problems

Multiplayer Support via VBA

Multiplayer support via Visual Boy Advance connectivity works. But is very slow even with only a single instance of VBA-M connected. Refer issue 3177.

To set up multiplayer with VBA-M, follow these steps.

  • Download the latest VBA-M svn.
  • Dump your gba_bios.bin, and enable it in VBA-M (Options > Emulator > Bios Files)
  • Disable "Pause when inactive" in VBA-M (Options > Emulator)
  • In the Dolphin configuration, go to the "Gamecube" tab and select "GBA" for port 2
  • Start the game in Dolphin and go to a dungeon
  • In VBA-M, go to Options > Link > Joybus Options and type "127.0.0.1"
  • When you press ok, Dolphin should freeze (this is normal)
  • Now load the gba_bios.bin, in the same way you would load a normal gba-game (File > Open GBA)
  • Enable Turbo Mode in VBA (Options > Speed > Turbo Mode), otherwise the game will run at ~8% speed
  • Now just wait until it connects. It may take a while, but this is normal
  • You can use a VBA-M savestate to make it connect faster next time

Audio Problems

The game's music often becomes distorted after playing a few hours and on slower computers the music can become desynchronized. Fixed by the New-AX-HLE 2.0 merger in 3.5-1154.
