This version of VBA is maintained by a seperate group from the original. The emulator has been improved in many ways.
The biggest difference is the usage of other render methods. This allows the program to run natively on Linux. Although, currently there are only test builds for 32-bit Linux.
Game runs fine, inserting roms of all sorts (GBA, GBC, and GB).
Able to switch controls.
What does not
XAudio2 failed to initialize, therefore, no sound.
