gpSP 0.7.2+ Repacked with new game_config

the gpSP is a gameboy advance emulator originally written by Exophase. And now it’s ported to the Symbian OS!

I head from the users that the game_config.txt from the past works better than the one packaged with 0.7.2. Some say that the Pokemon Fire Red works with this game_config, while it doesn’t work with the one packages in 0.7.2. For me it seems to be working with both game_configs, so I decided to make a new package for you. Does this one work better, do we have better game compatibility, or do you prefer the one packaged with the older 0.7.2? You can reply in the comments section.

This version supports only Symbian^3 phones with Symbian Belle refresh installed (N8, E7 etc.). The old Symbian Anna users should still use the older gpSP 0.7.  The S60 5th edition users should use the gpsp 0.6.5 for S60 5th edition

What’s new:

  • Repacked with new game_config.txt

 

Controls:

  • You can choose between 8-directional and 4-directional DPads.
  • You can add hidden A+B button areas, to press both of them at once.
gpsp: the red dots indicates the hidden A+B areas

know issues:

  • Mounted shares(Dropbox etc.) breaks the filemanger, so do not use mounted shares.
  • It’s a gpsp port, so see the gpsp compatibility list before complaining about non-working ROMs
  • the emulator crashes if you try to load a ROM without setting the BIOS
  • there are some limitations in the ZIP file support, so maybe you have to upzipt the ROMs
  • The ZIP files seem to be eating quite a lot of RAM, so If ROM doesn’t work, try extracting it.

ZIP limitations

  • WinZip
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (PPMd) format WILL NOT work.
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (bzip2) format WILL NOT work
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (Enhanced Deflate) format WILL NOT run
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Normal format WILL run
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Fast format WILL run.
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Super Fast format WILL run.
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip None format WILL run.

gpSP 0.7.2 for Symbian Belle Refresh and FP2

the gpSP is a gameboy advance emulator originally written by Exophase. And now it’s ported to the Symbian OS!

It seems that Nokia has changed something with Symbian memory management in new Symbian Belle refresh update, and it seems that the old gpsp 0.7.1 doesn’t work anymore after Belle refresh update. This version contains minor adjustments to the memory management to make it will work with Symbian belle refresh again.

This version supports only Symbian^3 phones with Symbian Belle refresh installed (N8, E7 etc.). The old Symbian Anna users should still use the older gpSP 0.7.  The S60 5th edition users should use the gpsp 0.6.5 for S60 5th edition

What’s new:

  • Support for Symbian Belle Refresh


Controls:

  • You can choose between 8-directional and 4-directional DPads.
  • You can add hidden A+B button areas, to press both of them at once.
gpsp: the red dots indicates the hidden A+B areas

Pokemon Platinum On gpSP

You’ll need Platinum ROM (GBA Converted) and VBA (Visual boy advance for windows) for this hack

Here’s short description how to do it:

Step 1 : Drag the Pokemon Platinum game ROM, To VBA (visualboy advanced)
the emulator should open starting the game

Step 2 : Click Options on the top left corner, hover you’re mouse over emulator, then save type it normal will be on Flask 64K Change it, click on Flask 128K

Step 3 : Start playing the game (Z = A//X=B Space speeds up the game) make your character name and go all the way until where you wake up from your dream. once your inside your room in the game press Enter and go down to Save and press Z and save the game.
When you do this, the saved file should appear on your desktop named “Pokemon platinum GBA version.sav”

Step 4 : Tranfer the VBA bios file to phone (and set it later at gpsp file settings)

Step 5 : Transfer the Save file to your ROM folder with the same name as the ROM into your phone. For example if the game is named as “Pokemon_platinum.gba”, then save the save file as “Pokemon_platinum.sav”

Open gpsp4Symbian, set the new bios and play Pokemon Platinum 
(PS. You cant make a new game, just press continue you can make multiple save files, you won’t ever need to make a new game because you didn’t even start )
