General Info:
VBA-M is a [Super] Game Boy [Color / Advance] emulator for Windows, Linux & Mac. Here you can get information about the latest development build of the Windows version and download it while you're at it.

Core and code improvements
Improvements to ARM/Thumb ASM (and C_CORE if the given preprocessor is set) that have improved various hardware behavior.
Improvements to Memory access resolving issues with the wrong bytes being returned and fixes to a DMA Fetch that was not behaving properly.

Resolved some issues occuring due to an abuse of opengl, hq3/4x filters now work without colour issues.

Games fixed

GBA
Croket 2 - would freeze when walking to the left of the snowman
Jurassic Park Builder/Creator - text would be scrambled
Lufia - scrambled text on main menu after cancelling the load screen
Moto GP - register not implemented
Phantasy Star Collection - text regression introduced and subsequently fixed
V-rally 3 - graphics regression introduced and subsequently fixed
Megaman: Battle network 1-3 and possibly many others - hanging on start.

GBC
Duke Nukem - Hud and menu now work. GBC video emulation needs more work however, the hack used is not correct and might cause issues elsewhere.

Not a bug

GBA
Digimon Racing EU - freezes during intro's
Resolution: Enable Linking, this game checks the serial bus to see if link cable and gba's are connected at start and will not progress if the interface reports a invalid/nulled value.

GBC
Links Awakening - Sprite issues when sword beaming and when moving around with chomp
Resolution: Accurate Emulation. This occurs on real hardware and is because the Line/Sprite limit is reached. Other emulators use a hack to show all sprites - we may investigate such a hack in the future but for now this is not a real issue.
