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


  • 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.

Just download and install.

  6. Saikat says:

    hello, mate. This is a great app. But I want to play Yu Gi Oh GX & Ketai Telefang denjuu (J) translated in english. Ketai Denjuu telefang crashes randomly during game & Yu Gi Oh GX crashes in duels. Please fix this or tell me the codes needed to run them. I’ll edit Game_config.txt. Gta Advance doesn’t run too. Please mail me the codes of these games [email protected] . It would be awesome if Gpsp has speed up feature. Thanks for developing this app.

  24. Baka94 says:

    Metroid Fusion seems to not to work. It goes black screen when Samus is supposed to exit the ship after the briefing by the computer thing (This happens on EU, US and JP Rom. I haven’t tried other regions if there even are other regions for MF left to try). Other bugs I found:
    -Gpsp craches when you use reset button
    -Gpsp crashes when you change rom during emulation

    Hey Summeli!
    I don’t know if you are still an active developer for Symbian, so don’t mind if I’m wrong.
    I’m an avid Legend of Zelda fan, and I’ve finished almost all the titles you can find under Gameboy and SNES, save for one- The Minish Cap. Here’s why:
    Everything goes fine and buttery smooth until at the very end (the Dark Hyrule Castle part) where it just gets stuck and then crashes.
    It all starts like this: I enter Dark Hyrule Castle, take the stairs on the right, arrive at the lower floor and head up a screen, ignoring the (wizard and skeleton) enemies. Then I find myself in a long passage filled with bat-like enemies, and head up another screen. There are four skeleton enemies here (hidden though, but they jump up as you come close enough). I defeat them and create three duplicates of myself and move on to lower the gates and go ahead. As I head up another screen, I find several fox-like enemies. I ignore them and use a bomb to blow open a doorway at the bottom left corner. I head in, and find two moving fire enemies; I avoid them and head up the stairs. Once I’m up, I go ahead and engage with a Red Darknut and defeat it. Then I push the lone chair in the room to the left and head down the hidden stairs. Here I find some more bat-like enemies and three mummies; I ignore them and head up the stairs on the right. Once I’m up, I head right and find myself in a room with two moldroms. I ignore them and head up the stairs. Once I arrive at the upper floor, I ignore the lone enemy (spark) and head down. THIS is where the game gets stuck and crashes.
    So, I thought it was because of a faulty ROM; I tried another version of the ROM and played through the game all over again to find myself stuck at the same place.

  28. Hasni says:

    Now all I want to know is whether this is fix-able or not. If so, please help me out!

  29. Hasni says:

    Oh well. Thanks anyways.
    By the way, I really like your GPSP Emulator for Symbian, and my Nokia-Symbian phone E7’s hardware keyboard makes playing all those classic games so much more fun. Thanks for making the best GBA Emulator for Symbian!

  36. Shin Chan says:

    how to modificate manually the L and R virtual key position lower? it seem too close to the menu key (for L key) and start/pause (for R key), it’s difficult to avoid accidentaly hit the wrong button since L and R button are not big enough, IMO.
