Handhelds that can link (GB, GBA link cable emulation)
« on: December 04, 2019, 10:35:44 am »
Hey all,

I've been waiting for a very long time to be able to play Pokemon romhacks with friends.

At the moment, the only real way to play GBA games and link with friends is via Android, or a flash card on actual hardware.

There used to be the K101 and the Digi Retro but they're either no longer available or are wildly expensive.

So, question, is there any handheld emulation machines that emulate GB link cable connections either via Bluetooth, wifi, or a physical link cable?

Love in advance

Pratically ? None so far.
Maybe it would be possible with the Retrostone 2 and a desktop port of VBA-M. Android devices can also use TGB Dual for this purpose but i haven't tried it personally. It could also work for the GCW-Zero or Retrostone 2 provided that you use Retroarch and the TGB Dual.

But yeah, nothing else has anything like that. When it is implemented, its poorly done.
The issue is that most cheap handleds don't have any sort of connectivity out of the box whatsoever. (RG-350, PG2, RS-97 ...)
