    whenever I try to save my game on the GBA emulator, it doesn't save. do I need to add a bios file or something to make it save my states?

    Yes. Here is a link to a guide that has a link for the file:

    I don't need the GBA bios file. I already have that. the emulation itself works fine. the problem I have is saving. it refuses to save my game.

    ... Hmm.
    Try a different Bios file.
    And make sure you put it in /Applications/gpsphone.app

    so there are different bios files? I will give that a try. know any bios files that work 100%? (plese don't give me a youtube link. safari is retarded and refuses to open youtube normally. it keeps opening mobile.

    as a matter of a fact, how DO you save. I remember seeing "save game" at one point, but I can't remember how I got it to show up. it won't appear now.

    2.1

    Is it diferent for the diferent firmwares?

    ------------------------------------

    PROBLEM SOLVED! it won't save roms if they are in folders. It must be directly in the ROMs folder.

    I was just about to suggest something along the lines of that.
    Hope I helped at least a little.

    I believe Zod (the guy who ported the emulator to iPhone) has said that he has not implemented a working save function for the GBA. I'm not 100% on that but I thought I read it somewhere...
