    VBA Link


    Has anybody out there been able to get two gameboy advance emulators to link successfully? I would like to be able to trade some pokemon back and forth. I tried running VBA Link in Wine, but it does not work. Any ideas?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Assuming that the emulators are for Windows systems, then you can try running Windows in a Linux virtual machine, such as VirtualBox, and install the emulator there.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Yeah, I could just run the program in Windows, and transfer the save file back to my Linux system. I was hoping for a solution that didn't involve relying on Microsoft. Anyways, that's what I'll do, thanks for the reply.

    P.S. If anybody does find a way to do this in Linux in the future (or hears of a Linux port for VBA Link), let me know.
