    It's against the rules to post sites for torrents or illegal downloads. Really sorry man, the fun you could be having playing those games right now... oh well. You have my regards.

    Can just cause you can't say where to get things exactly doesn't mean you can't help!

    Install the gSPhone app (the Game Boy Advance Emulator). Then simply search for GBA Roms on the internet, you'll find loads of them. Of course here comes the disclaimer .... please make sure you own a copy of the game that you are downloading the ROM for .... and that should satisfy the legal requirements.

    Happy playing!

    Actually, I'm pretty sure owning the original game doesn't satisfy the legal requirements. Most GBA games anyway say on the front pages of the manual that you aren't allowed to run the game on any other hardware.

    Sigh, do I have to spell it out? :p thepiratebay.org is a nice torrent site, not that I recommend anyone use it... wait, what's a torrent? Vigilante isn't typing this, his crazy next door neighbor is (I broke into his house at 2:44 in the morning, of course!) Once you find a ROM, you put it into the folder the application tells you. You need to use an FTP client like WinSCP to do this.

    You're missing the BIOs file, or you put the BIOs into the wrong place.

    The current legal status is that you can backup anything you own legally but it is illegal to transfer that backup to others.

    Thus, downloading roms is illegal. The only way to legally play a GBA game is to rip the rom yourself (I have the hardware and have done this).
