    mmm, 1.8 beta (1) is faster and I don't see what's new in beta 3.

    aps, what's is the screenshot above? It is not very representative of the program.

    At VisualBoy Advance homepage it states

    Saturday, October 1 2005 - Version 1.8.0 beta 3

    Was this headline a typo or does the homepage have their dates mixed up?

    Reviewing 1.8.0 Beta 2 (Jan 7, 2005)

    I second Scorcho's review. I have an ATI Radeon 9600XT and no matter how much I tweak I can't get a good framerate. It says it's constantly running at 98-100% in the corner but it's much too choppy. Frame-skipping doesn't help at all (0, 1, or 2) and all the different rendering modes run just as bad.

    It's time to downgrade to 1.7.

    But for the record I love this program, there really is no better alternative (besides maybe VBALink but that's based off of VBA anyways).

    1.8 has been buggy for me, introducing choppy sound playback and stuttering framerates. moving back down to the 1.7.x release solved it though. all in all the best GBA emulator, but it still has some issues.
