Dec 7, 2009
Hey I'm having trouble with my gba emulator it tells me to browse through and load the gba biois bin file but the 17 diffrent ones I downloaded aren't coming up as a matter a fact nothings coming up it says there are no files in any folders and I've already copied them to folders from my phone and my computer? Any help plzzzzz?,,,?,?
Welcome to AF! :D

Create a folder called GBA games -> Download gba_bios.bin -> Place it in the folder -> Place all the Roms in the same Folder -> Start up Gameboid -> Navigate to the Folder -> You will now see all the games their

Nope thats the one I used and it works fine for me , When you access Gamboid your not suppose to click on GBA_bios.bin , Your suppose to click on the Roms and then it should automatically run.

Tell me how your doing it , Like this:

Open Gameboid -> If it detects the File you'll come to a screen with Load ROM & Search ROM -> Select Load ROM -> Navigate to the folder with the ROM's and Bios file -> Select one of the games.

Is this how it appears for you?

It dosent give me the option to load the rom it says it needs the biosbin files search for it on the internet then I browse my files and when I click it it says failed. What am I doing wrong?

Damn I don't know?? :thinking: You should literally be able to put the GBA_Bios file in a folder with the Roms and it should work...

Anyone else got an ideas?

I did like this
downloaded the gba_bios.bin from Carl C -> downloaded some games -> made a new folder -> past in the gba_bios.bin and the games -> start Gameboid and go to the folder and press on the gba_bios.bin -> after that you can see the games and just press on one off them.

it workes fine for me ^^

I have it on my SD card, I have ROMS, But when I try to play a game, it said the BIOS failed to load.

Gameboid Lite (free version) works fine.
The one I payed $4 for, doesn't work.
But I wanna be able to save my damn games. Ugh.

E-mailed Dev, hope for a quick solution.

Same problem here. Using the same bios and folder paths that worked fine with the G1 and Droid. Using Incredible now and have the same problems pointed out here.
