Issue with MGBA

Hi everyone. I’m having some issues with MGBA on my Gameshell and I’m new to emulation in general so I’m not entirely sure what’s up or how to fix it. I basically have two problems, firstly there’s no sound over my ROMs. The only ROMs I have installed are Pokemon Silver and Crystal and in both cases the games run absolutely fine but there’s no sound of any kind. Also whenever I use the B button to pause the emulation it locks in place and I have to quit out and relaunch the game to unpause. I also don’t seem to be able to bring up an emulator menu regardless of what button combo I try, though I’m not sure if this is a problem or just how the emulator works. Any help would be hugely appreciated, thanks!

os v0.5?

do you have gpsp on your gameshell?

Yes it’s v0.5, and yes I have gpsp as well

A little suggestion:

use gpsp for a try

and also you can try this in ssh of gameshell

cd ~/apps/emulators
wget https://buildbot.libretro.com/nightly/linux/armv7-neon-hf/latest/mgba_libretro.so.zip
unzip mgba_libretro.so.zip

to use a new mgba retroarch core

mgba requires a gba_bios.bin in ~/apps/emulators or ~/apps/emulators/bios

I don’t remember the exact directory path

I thought that gpsp couldn’t play gbc games but I’ll give it a go, thanks!

here is an old topic for the gbc
