    Default Best GB/GBC Emulator? Masterboy Vs Homers RIN Vs Other?

    I was just curious what people think is the best one. Currently I have Masterboy and I like it a lot. Although Homers RIN seems to be popular aswell.

    Masterboy is very simple and easy to use and idk...crisp I'd say. It just looks nice. I also like that it has a turbo mode awell. From what it seems it lacks cheat enabling capabilities though.

    RIN I have never used but it seems very popular. I also hear it has cheat systems built in? Something I believe Masterboy lacks. I am curious as to if it has a turbo mode and any other nice features.

    So... Masterboy? RIN? Some other emulator I havent heard of? Which do you like and why?

    I use Homers RIN. Why? It was the first one I tried and it played the game I was trying to play. I have no need for turbo mode or cheats so I can't comment on those.

    That makes sense. Turbo is rarely useful but when I want to speed through something I find it very nifty.

    I am not one to condone cheat codes usually either. Makes games no fun imo. But when it comes to emulators I like them for situations in which things become impossible to obtain because normally 2 gameboys are needed or something. Like say... a general very common example I would assume is in pokemon games. When the particular pokemon you want doesnt usually spawn in the version youre playing. Usually you trade them over. As far as I know accomplishing things like trading is impossible with emulators on a psp.

    Simple situations like those. Little things. But those count too

    I prefer Masterboy. I used Rin first and it was good but I tried Masterboy and like it more simply because it looks better. Both have great compatibility. Pretty much any game that works on Rin will work on Masterboy. Also, Masterboy also plays Sega Gamegear and Sega Master system games along with GBC and GB games. I don't think Rin plays Gamegear or master system.

    Look here for working emulators and known issues with emulators: http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=42. I copy & pasted the information about GBA emulators here for you:

    GBA Emulators (Recommended: GPSP Kai v3.4)

    GPSP Kai v3.4 Test 3 Build 152

    Download (All files set up and ready to use on your PSP, except the BIOS and ROMS, also includes an updated game_config.txt from TragicTheBlubbering, a cleaner english.msg with corrected button prompts in the menu by yours truly, and the save state button prompt fixes by tronpsp): MediaFire

    Overall Rating: 9/10 (Exits to HBL Menu, but you cannot run any other homebrews without a crash )

    Spoiler:
    Information: This is the latest alpha revision of GPSP on Takka's SVN. The only thing newer than this is GPSP-J, and the differences between the two are minimal. A pre-compiled version is provided with the download, but you can get the source here.

    Compatibility: You can exit to HBL Menu, but attempting to run another homebrew results in a crash Ad-Hoc has also been removed (small loss). The HOME button is actually hooked in this emulator, pressing it will bring you to the menu! I have no idea how it's working, but it is...since R99, I haven't encountered the issue of crashing on exiting a 16MB ROM to the ROM list, so go enjoy your games, back to back!

    Performance: Much better than 3.2. Games like Pokemon FireRed and Metroid run full speed without frameskip now, among soooooooo many others. I know your itching to hit the dl link now, so just install it and come back later, okay? k, now your back. You can now go into sleep mode and resume without any problems as well! This build is very stable for an alpha, huh?

    Features:
    -Save States
    -Frameskip (Auto Frameskip works correctly in this GPSP btw)
    -Custom Key Mappings
    -Sound Toggling
    -CPU Clock Speed Adjustment
    -Support For Game-Specific Configuration Settings
    -Screenshots
    -Other Miscellaneous Options

    Credits: Much thanks to TragicTheBlubbering for finding Takka's SVN


    GPSP v0.9 HEN-D

    Download: Exophase

    Overall Rating: 9/10 (Even this one crashes on exit )

    Spoiler:
    Information: Ahh...the last GPSP release of its original developer, Exophase. The man deserves respect. Most of the core work was taken care of by him, so before Takka, thank Exophase that you can emulate GBA so well on your PSP.

    Compatibility: Everything works fine except the exit feature.

    Performance: This is definetely the most "stable" release. You can just feel it. However, a good deal of compatibility was added in the Takka releases (though most of it might have been game_config.txt updates, I don't really know), so this is not a replacement for 3.4. I do recommend you keep it on your memory stick, and while your at it, replace the game_config.txt with the one provided with GPSP Kai 3.4 for extra compatibility.

    Features:
    -Save States
    -Frameskip
    -Custom Key Mappings
    -Support For Game-Specific Configuration Settings
    -Sound Toggling
    -CPU Clock Speed Adjustment
    -Screenshots
    -etc.


    GPSP Kai v3.2 Test 04

    Download: DCEmu - Must Register To Download

    Overall Rating: 8/10 (Cannot exit to HBL menu, not as good as v3.4 )

    Spoiler:
    Information: Continuation of the original gpSP project by Takka. Was the best GBA emulator available for HBL before GPSP Kai v3.4.

    Compatibility: Cannot exit to HBL Menu. Exit to XMB works. AdHoc is now working perfectly on R96. Most users who can't get this working have to acquire a gba_bios.bin. It is 16kb and you must put it in the gpSP folder for it to run.

    Performance: Varied. Mostly good at 333mhz(default). Can successfully enter and resume sleep/suspend if you go to the ROM list first. If you try to suspend while playing a game, it'll crash shortly after resuming.

    Features:
    -Save States
    -Frameskip
    -Custom Key Mappings
    -Support For Game-Specific Configuration Settings
    -Sound Toggling
    -CPU Clock Speed Adjustment
    -Screenshots
    -etc.


    GPSP-J 100429

    Download: QJ
    Alternate Download: PSP-Hacks

    Overall Rating: 6/10 (Crashes when going to emulator menu, not full screen by default )

    Spoiler:
    Information: Continuation of gpSP Kai buy an unknown Japanese coder. Much better than gpSP Kai, when its compatibility is resolved with HBL.

    Compatibility: Cannot exit to HBL Menu. Going to the GPSP menu returns an error, which then crashes the PSP after you press a button. Not worth using yet, stick with v3.2 test 04. Requires gba_bios.bin.

    Performance: The way it is now, not good. Once some fixes are made for HBL (hope the coder comes out of hiding), this is the best GBA emulator you can use on PSP No idea if it supports sleep/suspend, reports please

    Features:
    -Save States
    -Frameskip
    -Sound Toggling
    -Custom Key Mappings
    -CPU Clock Speed Adjustment
    -Screenshots
    -etc.
