So I flashed a new SD Card (8gb) with the zero image from retropie website. I made the relevant changes to config.txt to make the audio work. I'm still dissapointed that GBA games don't work without sound lagg. Does anybody have GBA working perfectly? :(

The games wouldn't run at all without the BIOS though? So I have to DL and then drop the BIOS into gba folder? I never had to do this before and GB and GBC run OK. So does NES.

UPDATE: I placed the bios in \\RETROPIE\bios but still same sluggish performance from GBA games :(

Only some cores have need a BIOS file -> wiki
Can you provide a save state where the problem appears?

I have the GBA BIOS but the games still aren't running perfectly. What I want to know, is it even possible to have GBA games running perfectly on pi zero w? Its annoying me because I don't know if this is normal or not. If not, then I am very dissapointed that I cannot play gba on my raspiboy. One of the main reasons I got it, so will probably sell it. :(

Watch some GBA games performing on a pi zero on YouTube. I did that too, but also expected to get a little better performance due to the small resolution.

Sure, it probably will never perform like a pi 3.

I also noticed this, but then realized I have to press A and select lr-gpsp as default. After this every gba game runs smoothly.
