VGBA package itself does not contain any games. You should place your own game files onto the SD card before running VGBA. Notice that VGBA will not play Classic GameBoy games: you will need VGB for that.

Please, do not run any software you do not own with VGBA. The author cannot and will not tell you where to find free GameBoy Advance games.

    Could use some nicer looking controls or UI. But feature packed and customizable. *Edit: Thank you dev for responding I wasn't aware one can change the bitmap, will look into it.
