gpSPhone 1.5.0 Released

Posted by Eric March on February 4, 2008

It’s-a New!ZodTTD is trickling out the updates to his coterie of software. First out of the gate is gpSPhone, the seminal (well, only) Game Boy Advance emulator for the iPod Touch and iPhone.

gpSPhone, the Gameboy Advance emulator, has been updated to v1.5.0. New changes in this release includes:

– Added support for both scaled/unscaled landscape and portrait view settings.
– Added support for firmware 1.1.3’s “mobile” user. gpSPhone should run well on 1.1.3 now.
– Added hardware accelerated scaling for better performance and look.

This release should be very stable and slightly faster. You now have the option between portrait and landscape mode. Hardware scaling gives a smoothed over looking picture, which some may prefer, with the advantage of performance.

A big thanks to Exophase, the author of gpSP, for his continued work on emulation. Without him, gpSPhone couldn’t exist.

For public domain ROMs (legal homebrew games) , head to Kojote’s great site:

Downloads for gpSPhone v1.5.0 can be found by visiting the Download section. It is available at the public repo.

All you folks who earned your manhood (or womanhood) in the trial-by-fire that is the 1.1.3 jailbreak can now play rousing tournaments of Mario Kart with ease, and the scaling and use of OpenGL should make it a lot prettier.

In case you hadn’t noticed, Zod also has a cool new look for his blog that’s worth checking out.

    Amazing how hard it can be to design a site. 😛

    one question: how does the scaling feature work? is there any way for the user to control it? i upgraded to gpsphone 1.5.0, and the image i got was really fuzzy. also, when i upgraded, it deleted the bios file, which i had to put back on.
