Posted on 19th Jun 2013 @ 9:10 AM

TempGBA beta version 1.43
Download Here: http://filetrip.net/d32058-TempGBA-1-43.html

A Game Boy Advance emulator for the Supercard DSTWO.
Based on:
gameplaySP (gpSP) 0.9 by Exophase, with help from various GBA developers
gpSP Kai unofficial 3.3 by Takka
The CATSFC GUI by ShadauxCat and Nebuleon (improving over BAGSFC) with language files contributed by the GBAtemp community for CATSFC

Change log (v1.43):

File selector improvements.

* Supports more than 511 elements in a folder without crashing, RAM permitting. A progress indicator appears if a directory is large. For example, "Loading... (950)" indicates that the file selector has looked at 950 entries so far.
* The screenshot slideshow does not crash with an exception if there are no screenshots.
* It should not be possible anymore to be "locked" into the last page if it has 1 or 2 elements and you enter it with the R shoulder button.
* Sorting has been optimised with GameYob's quicksort code.
* Folders are now sorted inline with files.

To function properly, TempGBA needs a dump of the GBA's BIOS. It is not distributed in the release archive because of legal issues. Do not ask the author where to find this file; any questions regarding the BIOS will be quickly ignored. You, the user, are responsible for your use of the BIOS.
The file you dump or find should be 16 KiB (16384 bytes) and have the following checksums:
CRC32: 81977335;
MD5: a860e8c0b6d573d191e4ec7db1b1e4f6;
SHA-1: 300c20df6731a33952ded8c436f7f186d25d3492.
Once dumped or found, name the file gba_bios.bin, and place it in the TEMPGBA directory of your storage card. So the path should look like this: /media/Your-Card/TEMPGBA/gba_bios.bin on Linux; E:\TempGBA\gba_bios.bin on Windows.

Improving game compatibility with game_config.txt
Included with this release is a file called game_config.txt. The file is the same as the one included in gpSP Kai. It goes in the TEMPGBA directory on your storage card when you extract the release.
This file contains information to enhance game compatibility in two ways.
Firstly, it tells TempGBA about the save type used by a certain game, so that battery-backed saves may be read and written correctly.
Secondly, it tells TempGBA about idle loops in a certain game, so that it may stop emulating when the game reaches them. It runs the game faster.
game_config.txt receives updates from the community occasionally. For the latest version, see: http://filetrip.net/nds-download ... atest-x-f12630.html
