Download Game Boy Advance Emulator for PC

To download the GBA emulator you just have to enter the following link .

Once downloaded, select it and click the right mouse button , a menu will appear and click extract files , as in the image (remember that you will need a program to decompress).

Once unzipped it will have generated a new folder, to run this GBA emulator in Windows we must give the VisualBoyAdvance-M-WX.EXE file , as in the photo.

A black window will open, we will click where it says “File” and then click “Open” .

Now we must look for the folder where we have our Game Boy Advance ROMS , the games must be in .GBA format or compressed with Winrar, Winzip or 7Z . If we are in the folder but they are not visible , don’t worry, we select the option “All Files (*.*)” and they will appear. Now you just have to select any one.
