Mac Boy Advance AKA Visual Boy Advance is a GameBoy/GameBoy Color/GameBoy Advance emulator for Mac OS X

VisualBoyAdvance is a GameBoy/GameBoy Color/GameBoy Advance emulator for Mac OS X.  If you have any suggestions or bug reports for VisualBoyAdvance, you can email me at:  adam at emuscene dot com.

A GameBoyAdvance BIOS file is optional for VisualBoyAdvance.  You can select this file in the preferences before playing GameBoy Advance games.  Note that it is not required to have BIOS image to run VisualBoyAdvance.  If you would like to use the bios, place it in the same folder as VisualBoyAdvance with the filename "gbasys.bin" (without quotes).  Do not ask me for rom images, I will be forced to forward those emails to the proper authorities.

VisualBoyAdvance supports zipped and gzipped roms transparently.

Cheats for GameBoy Advance games must be entered while no rom is running.  Select close rom from the File menu and then you can enter the cheats using the cheat items under the Options menu respective to the type of code you want to enter.  After entering your codes, click OK and then select a rom using the Open Rom... option in the File menu, and your cheat codes will be applied to that game.
