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?

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.

Yeah, must be your card, graphics drivers, chipset drivers or whatever. No problems with OpenGL or D3D on my GF4 4200 here.

works great except the openGL video mode... it might just be my video card but when i use the openGL video mode it freezes up after about a minute and becomes unplayable.
my video card... nVidia G4 Ti4200-8X, latest drivers, WinXP... it does however play just fine with Direct3D, so 4 stars.

Definately the best GBA/GB/GBC emulator, easy to use, default interface (So many emus have to fancy it up).
