Who wants a near full speed and very playable GBA emulator for the Sharp Roms. Suhami(is that his name?) compiled the original gpsp for pdaxrom and I ported it to the sharp rom (http://www.suhami.net/ez/?page_id=7).
It needed a compiler upgrade, the 2.95 gcc is not up to the task of compiling anything anymore.
Gpsp since it is made for the psp and then ported to gp2x has very good arm assembly optimisation for near full speed play. I have tried many games and most of them are very playable.
I am including the executable in this post as well as the script needed to play it in zemu frontend. I have modified Suhami's code to change the key bindings to
If you dont like these keys suhami aslo mentions in his website and i checked his code that you can use the environment variable GPSPKEYS as shown below to use your favorite keys.

GPSPKEYS= L,R,Down,Up,Left,Right,Start,Select,B,A
$ export GPSPKEYS=303,120,274,273,276,275,13,32,306,308

I am sorry not to ipk it but maybe someone can do it for me... and oh yes you need libsdl for it.

Here's what I have tried so far:
1. I tried this emulator in pdaxii13 and discovered that I needed to launch it in a console after I navigate to the directory that gpsp and gpsp_bios.bin are located. It launched in a very small size and the controls are backwards.

2. So I tried the same method in Cacko, and my machine froze up.

3. Next, I tried my 2nd console that I have set up for Turbografx CD games. This console has "run in magnified screen" checked. This stopped the game from freezing. I still have to navigate to the directory to launch the emulator. The controls are reversed here. Running this emulator this way is similar to to running psxforall, in that you navigate your file system in a text console, and the emu options are available.
Next, I need to use the script that I use in turbografx, but modify it to make the controls work and make it recognize gba games, which takes me to the last thing I did.

4. I copied sidmoraes script, placed it into /opt/QtPalmtop/bin and launched Zemu. When I selected the game ROM in Zemu's file browser, it looks like it starts to load, but throws me back to the file browser. So I think I need to make a new script that has part of the above script and some of the turbografx script. As I recall, all the different emus in Cresho's package have similar named scripts.
