The future for vba-m

Post by ZachBacon »

So to cut it short, we still have bit of an edge in gba emulation, I'm proud to say we've done well for a project, e-reader support, debugging support etc. For the most part we are getting pretty close to a 2.0 release. But for 2.0 and beyond, what's going to happen you may wonder?


Well, I know this is what I want to do, and this is what I will be doing for the next couple of months. In a separate branch in the main git repo, I'll be slowly rewriting portions of the emulation cores in vba-m. Namely for readabilities sake but also for the fact I believe the project would benefit from a file by file rewrite, improving the current code to a more modern approach and see if we can get some improvements to what we have and correct some issues along the way. The other goal for the rewrite is also to increase the accuracy of said emulation as well, increase accuracy but also maintain the balance of the speed we currently have. We've come a long way and we owe a lot of thanks to everyone who was part of the team and who are current as well.


It's going to be a long journey but one I think that will make vba-m better for it.

 


tl;dr:


We are going to make vba-m better than ever.

Well it's the next logical step that I could foresee with getting vba-m better.

Vba-m is an amazing project that I have been following for years. I think it was since the 1.7 release before the -m part. The improvement since then is simply astounding! Thanks for everything you and the team have done! :banana_flip:

I believe that VBA-M is far beyond other GBA emulators around. Thank you, the VBA-M team, and the original VBA team for improving the emulator very far.

Can we get the d-pad functionality fixed in the next beta? It has been broken for the past two betas. I've tested many controllers on multiple systems and it is definitely broken. Just boot up a pokemon game and try to walk down and make a quick turn left, the character will continue to walk in the initial direction. You have to first come to a complete stop and then make a turn. Tested every pokemon and other games such as kingdom hearts. A look into this would be much appreciated [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/smile.png[/img]/emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

Hello,


I'm new to this forum and I was wondering what exactly VBA-M is and how it differs from VBA. I can't seem to find any information online or any main webpage describing what VBA-M is. I know VBA is an old emulator that no longer receives updates. I assume VBA-M is a modification of VBA with new features, based off the same infrastructure; but I could be wrong. If someone could explain this to me, I would appreciate it. This seems like a very cool project with a lot of supporters and I would love to know what it is exactly.


Thank you

I'm surprised you really don't know. VBA-M is more than a modification, it's more of a spiritual successor to vba, it's also a project where it takes other forks (and there are a lot of them, and a lot of dead ones too at that and merged them into the project.
