does anyone know how to make a gameshark file for pokemon firered to use with vba windows? I’m on windows 10. im new to this, have mainly used vgbanext android, never could do the windows version. I have very little patience to take too long to do this. if any of yall have a solution, id appreciate it very much.


can it be used on windows 10 touch tab


Agree with other posters. VisualBoyAdvance-SDL.exe file via SourceForge.net doesn’t work – it opens for 0.5 seconds in a Command Line-like environment, and then closes.
Tried to run as administrator but failed too. Using Windows 10 Home if that helps anyone.


The application doesn’t open


it doesnt open

yes the application just closes itself 0.5 sec after it opened
