It's great. I have one suggestion that would make this and vgba the best emulators. Please add the function to add cover art to the game selection screen. That would be amazing.

Audio is pretty bad, emulates well though I have a lot of issues with the audio on these emulators, of the two that I have. The VGBA skips audio which is quite annoying but I can get used to, but this VGB seems to play the audio at a much higher pitch than it's supposed to. Ruins the experience on this one for me, unfortunately. Couldn't fix it in the settings. Hopefully this will be changed or fixed, because there are free emulators out there that don't have any issues. I appreciate the developer of these, though, as they actively fix problems.

Love it except small thing Best emulator out there except you cannot hide certain virtual buttons. It's all or nothing. It's not so bothersome when I play your vgba emulator but having the l and r buttons for vgb just seems silly I know I can move them but it would be much easier to just get rid of them in the layout editor. Some other emulators allow this already, this is seriously the only thing keeping it from being a perfect program. Allow those who want customization for whatever reason. Once again though thank you.

Love the emulators, hate the fast fwd buttons. I extremely enjoy the emulators you put out. My only issue is I can not toggle off the fast forward buttons as I don't use them and they tend to get in the way. Is there, by chance, anyway to disable the fast forward buttons I have over looked?
