VBA Link 1.8 LAN & WiFi edition!



VBA Link by denopqrihg is a modified version of GBA Emulator VisualBoy Advance. VBALink now supports GBA/SP multiplayer link cable emulation and linking of up to 4 gameboy emulators with gba roms. At this time linking is possible only under Windows OS. New! There is LAN support so no longer all the emulation has to be done on the same PC - connect up to 4 PC on the net.

- UnZIP all to a folder like c:\emu\vbalink
- Start two (three, four) VisualBoy Advance emulators at once and open gba roms.
- In VisualBoy Advance Link -- Options/Emulator, uncheck Pause when inactive window
- You don't have to turn off the sound like in TGB Dual - only the active VBA produces sound
- In VBALink options setup all the things, like controls, save paths & so on
- If you want a log of the transfer, check Log in Options/Link
- New! When playing Zelda: Four Swords, you have to set Timeout in Options/Link to above 10000 or below 200 (these values worked for me) - anything in between might make the game not link.
- If you want to use VBA save files in VBALink, you must rename them - the save file extension for VBA #1 is .sa1
(e.g. Pokemon Emerald.sa1), for #2 .sa2 etc. (the same is true for savestates - #1 has .sg1 etc.) - another solution is to import them, that works too.

When playing Zelda: Four Swords, you have to set Timeout in Options/Link to above 10000 or below 200 (these values worked for me) - anything in between might make the game not link.
