What is iGPSP?

iGPSP is a Gameboy Advance Emulator for the iPod touch so that you can play “.GBA” roms
Caution: iGPSP runs at about half the regular speed therefore the gaming experience won’t be as good as playing a real Gameboy Advance

Prerequisites: iPodLinux and Bootloader

Controls taken from the readme file

In the igpSP menu, the default controls are as followed:
MENU = up
PAUSE/PLAY = down
REWIND = left (on settings)
FAST FORWARD = right (on settings)
CENTRE = selection (of menu item)
HOLD SWITCH = exit menu

In the igpSP menu, if the “Menu scrolling” setting is “On”:
SCROLL LEFT = up
SCROLL RIGHT = down
REWIND = left (on settings)
FAST FORWARD = right (on settings)
CENTRE = selection (of menu item)
MENU = exit menu

In-game, controls are based on wheel touches as well as key
presses. They are as followed.
TOUCH UP = up
TOUCH DOWN = down
TOUCH LEFT = left
TOUCH RIGHT = right
TOUCH UP-RIGHT = A
TOUCH UP-LEFT = B
TOUCH DOWN-RIGHT = start
TOUCH DOWN-LEFT = select
MENU = up + B
PAUSE/PLAY = down + B
REWIND = left + B
FAST FORWARD = right + B
CENTRE = A
HOLD SWITCH = enter menu

In game, if the “Map L/R Triggers” setting is “On”:
REWIND = left trigger
FAST FORWARD = right trigger

In game, if the “Rapid Fire A & B” setting is “On”:
TOUCH UP-RIGHT = A (rapid fire)
TOUCH UP-LEFT = B (rapid fire)

Note that igpSP sometimes freezes when exiting. The
cause of this is unknown but I suspect it is due to
synchronization issues for COP (but I’m not sure).
If this happens, just force reboot your iPod
