What works

Everything but general loading and saving of data for the emulators extra features,except in game saving/loading works fine.

What does not

can't run games by opening app on its own, saving/loading of data other than game such as things in the map viewer and other extra features.

Workarounds

Additional Comments

Like mentioned previously you cannot open the games by running the emulator. The way you run the games is to right click the .GBA file and select "run with another application" and then use custom command and find the emulator Exe select it then once you're finished right click the file or any .GBA files and select run with "VisualBoyAdvance.exe" and the emulator should start up(in wine) with the game loaded. Only other comment is that the window scale seems wrong but you can addjust it through the menus or drag the window to a prefered size.

HowTo / Notes

In newest versions of wine game is unstable.
In the newer version of wine 1.2+, the game becomes unstable if you use any of the menus or allow the program to lose focus. Make sure all the settings you want are set before you start the game, because you won't be able to change anything without it crashing afterwards. *Note: I am only able to test this on Ubuntu. Please, let me know if anyone else has this problem.
Get VBA running in Wine

There is a minor tweak needed to get the emulator to run. There is a DLL that VisualBoy requires that Wine doesn't have, no one has decided to port the DLL to Wine.

With the new version of Wine (1.2), a couple before it as well, it winetricks is now included with Wine. Which makes this even easier.

Use this command:

winetricks mfc42


For older versions of wine:

Download Winetricks

Then Run this command:

sh winetricks mfc42
