gpSP4Symbian: S60 3rd edition preview

This is just an initial release to gain some feedback how the port is currently working. I would like to know if you get any games running at correct speed. The first number in the fps-counter is telling how fast the emulator is running( it should be 60). If you do get something running at that speed, please also test the audio then. I have some tricks planned for the audio, but there’s really no point of doing it, if it doesn’t run fast enough.
Please list some games in the comments that you got running well, so I can test the audio with those. It’s really no point of tweaking audio, if the game doesn’t run well. Tell also what phone you are using. It would be very interesting to have some results from phones with 600Mhz ARM processor.

Know issues:

  • key config is missing
  • only one game can be loaded with each run
  • audio may not work well. I really didn’t have a good setup to test it.
  • You should turn audio on after a game has been loaded. Turning the audio on before loading the game will crash the emulator.
  • The emulator requires a lot of CPU power. It really doesn’t work with my N96 or N73

There is no keyconfig yet available, so you’ll have to bear with these for a while. up/down/left/righ form the d-pad

Install the emulator from the sis file, and then place the following files under E:\GBA folder

  • game_config.txt
    You should find this file with the installation package
  • gba_bios.bin
    You should find this on your own. Please don’t post links to this file in the comments. Make sure to get an authentic one, it’ll be exactly 16384 bytes large and should have the following md5sum value: a860e8c0b6d573d191e4ec7db1b1e4f6
  • put also ROM’s under E:\GBA folder

Also Nokia’s OpenC plugin is required. So if you don’t have it, then you should install it asap.
And now you’re done. Have fun! 😉


This emulator is based on gpsp originally written by Exophase. It also uses SDL port by Anotherguest. Symbian porting was made by me, Summeli.
