Setup Frame Skipping in the VBA Emulator
Edited by Lukward Thomason, VisiHow, Eng, Anonymous
Hi! You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set up the frame skip in the VisualBoyAdvance Emulator.
The first thing we need to do is open up the emulator itself.
In this case we have it on the desktop.
Then we need to open up any of the games.
We have Pokemon on the desktop, so we're going to load this up.
As you can see, the game has been loaded.
To change the frameskip options, we have to press "Options"
From there, you need to select the option:
from 0 up to 9.
You can also set it to "Automatic."
As you can see the frames have been reduced, because we have set it to Automatic.
It's skipping the performance of the computer into account.
Now we're going to remove it and then go to 9 frames per second.
You see it's choppy, because it's skipping nine frames out of twenty.
So you're getting eleven frames per second.
If you set it to 0, you will skip no frames, but it will be much slower. This also depends on the game you are playing.
For example, there are several games that need to have the frames set to 0 to make it look much better.
And there are games that you have to set to 1, for example, the Castlevania games are best played with frame skips at 1.
This game - Pokemon is best played with 2.
Another option is the "Throttle." In this case we have "No Throttle."
But if we set it to 200%, you will notice that the game is much faster, but the sound is choppy.
So you have to set all the settings according to your preference and bear in mind that every game will have its own settings here.
This concludes our tutorial on how to set up the frame skip in the VisualBoyAdvance Emulator. Thank you for watching VisiHow! If you have any other comments or questions, please leave them in the comments section below.
