Description:

A frontend for VisualBoy Advance (http://vboy.ngemu.com/), a Nintendo GameBoyAdvance emulator using SDL.
The first versions was qt-dependent, instead this is better integrated in KDE and so depends on it.
It has a dialog for all the settings of the emulator (by command line), and a favorites tab for the most played roms. My TODO list in the package is blank, but this is because I'm not the time to actually work a lot on it, the feature I'm taking a look for is custom options for favorites, but I need to take a look best for them.
It also has a partially-working keypad configuration option.


Note: this is the last version I'll post. I'm not maintaining kvba anymore because I have no time to work on it.
If anybody want to work on it, I'll pass him the maintenance of it.
See on the site some advice if someone wants to wrote a new vba frontend.

Last changelog:

15 years ago

From version 0.6.2
* Desktop file installed into xdg menu instead of the old compatibily one.
* Updated .desktop file to suit the FD.O specs.
* Updated my website.
* Added discontinuation letter.
* Fixed compilation breakage.


From version 0.6.1
* Replaced qFatal() calls in main() with kdFatal() as for any other KDE
application.
* Removed the "unused parameter" warning in kvba.cpp.
* Fixed check for parent inheritance in AddFavorites (fixes the OK button when adding favorites.
* Updated admin directory as per 20050117.
* Changed copyright info from Flameeyes to Diego Pettení² (always me :))
* Fixed errors with paths erroneously remapped and favorites not working.

From version 0.6
* Removed the libdialog.la noinst library: the updated admin directory from kde-common builds correctly the .ui files before the others, so I need no more a sub-library to build these before the rest.
* Removed e-mail address for bugs reports (seems not to work, better remove it).
* Removed inclusion in main.cpp.
* Coded into .ui file the mode for KURLRequster's. No more need to set them in the code.

* Removed Kvba global object.

From version 0.5:
* New Add/Edit favorites dialog, now using KURLRequester and KPushButton
* Removed old "globals" dialogs, replaced with classic create-n-destroy dialogs.
* Added a KPart UI file, moving menus from Qt ones to KPart.

From version 0.4:
* Fixed compilation problems with .ui files (using KBattleShip walkthrough).
* Using KFileTreeView instead of QListView for searching for roms, it has a better KDE Look.
* Added icon (from favicon of vba's site)

This patch fixes the double click crash in the favorites tab when you do not have any favorites.

I've fixed 2 crashes and the compile error mentioned above.

http://smileaf.org/files/kvba-0.6.2.diff.bz2

the only problem I'm having with this now is it's so slow... if I run visualboyadvance without kvba it runs fine.

for the compile error I'm not exactly sure I really fixed it.. it just compiles and runs now....

make uninstall from the sources directory should do the uninstallation process.

For the problem, if you tell me exactly what the problem is I can take a look to fix it, unfortunately my crystall ball broke up some days ago :)

I know now, where the Problem is, but not to solve it.

A Slash is missing between folder KVBA and the game.

I use VBA 1.72 and KVBA 0.6

What's the problem?
I haven't tested it at the moment because I'm working on another thing, but if KVBA is broken for the 1.7 version, I'll fix it ASAP.
Tomorrow I'll try the new vba version.

I just can't contact them (neither via http, nor ping nor trace) and even don't get an ip.
So if anyone could please provide me direct ip number, i'd be very glad.

Thanks
