Apps

1. VBA8
This app is made for Windows Phone 8.0 but can still be used on WP8.1 and W10M. It can run all GB, GBC and GBA games. It is highly advanced with a lot of functions and customization. There is however a big problem: Microsoft algorithm has decided to hide the app in Windows 10 Store, making it not searchable even by querying the full name of the app. I don't know why this happens but it's really frustrating. Users can still download this app using direct links.

2. VGBC8
This app is exactly the same as VBA8 except the name and the icon. Why I made two identical apps? It's for discoverable purpose. Some people think VBA8 can only play GBA games so they search for a different app to play GB and GBC games. That's why I made another app so that users can find what they are looking for. It suffers from the same problem as VBA8 on Windows 10 Store.

3. VBA8+
Originally this app only supported Windows 8. It is compiled directly from the source code provided by m.k. with no modification so it is quite limited in functionality compare to VBA8. After VBA8 became unsearchable on Windows 10 Store, I added the VBA8 package to this app, making this a fake universal app. I called it fake universal because there are so much differences between the W8 package and WP8 package. Customers who want to use VBA8 on W10 Mobile can search and download this app. If you have paid for products in VBA8, they cannot be transferred to VBA8+, so you should download VBA8 instead using the provided direct link. Note that this app does not support multiple languages like VBA8.

4. VGBC8+
This app is compiled directly from the source code provided by m.k. with no improvement. It can only play GB and GBC games.

5. VBA10
This is a brand new universal app built from scratch for Windows 10. It will have new functionality that VBA8 does not have like Xbox support, custom filter etc. However it will lose Moga controller support because Moga has not yet made a library for Windows 10. This is beyond my control. Should Moga decides to support Windows 10, I will update the app to add the Moga functionality. If Moga support is a must for you, I suggest you download VBA8 or VBA8+. This app will be available in August 2015.
