    Gameboy Advance


    I am looking for a GBA (Gameboy Advance) emulator that is GTK based. I am looking for something a long the lines of VisualBoyAdvance on Windows, screenshot below.

    Anyone know of any? I am not interested in text/terminal based ones.

    Right after I have posted this, I went to look through the Gentoo-portage.org hoping I will come across something. And guess what? I did!

    I found GNOMEBoyAdvance, which is pretty much exactly what I was looking for.

    That's pretty cool looking, thanks for the tip.



    Might have to try that out. Do you know if there's a Super Nintendo emulator, off chance?

    In MS Windows, I always used SNES9X. According to their site, there's a Linux version as well:

    Turns out there is also VisualBoyAdvance for Linux which is the 1:1 copy of the Windows version (first screenshot).
