    I am a Mac user running a 2011 model mac. I am looking for a way to revisit gameboy games I have (legally purchased) from my childhood. I am wondering what your opinion is on the best way to go about running these games. There is a (workingish) version of VBA that runs on Lion, however it crashes when I try and hex edit, and the custom controls don't work.

    I tried VBA, and another fork varient of VBA, (both on the ubuntu software center), running in Linux in a VM. However, the sound was messed up and it was difficult to operate.

    Ethics and other issues aside, what is the best method for getting the highest quality GBA playing experience on OSX Lion?

    - Only looking for opinions, I can settle with the version of VBA that I have. It would be nice to find an updated emu that runs better though. Most of them have been outdated since last decade.

    I don't have wine on the Mac.. Didn't think that would work out too well.

    - I want to be able to edit hex without crashes (too much to ask for?)
    - I want codebreaker/gameshark codes to be able to work (again, too much?)
    - I want to be able to modify controls
    - I want sound to work (;D)

    OpenEMU appears to be awesome, but it isn't released.
