Like a cartridge slot for your computer

Tightly integrated emulator that updates the save file as you play so when you switch between console and GB Operator you can continue where you left off.
We use mGBA as the core emulator so you get to enjoy controller and cheat support, along with other features. However you’re not limited and you can play using your favourite emulator as well.
The application is cross-platform and runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.
