Boycott Advance is designed to run home brew Gameboy Advance software, and to that end it works well. It is also compatible with some commercial games, although this support is far from perfect. There are no plans to spend any more effort on compatibility until the Gameboy Advance is no longer on commercial sale.

Many games work perfectly (as far as I can tell) but many games do not. I have suffered glitches and strange graphical craziness in the following games:

Castlevania AoS (Large creature models with multiple moving parts don't work properly causing disjointed shapes to move strangely about the screen.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (second level is totally glitches out)

Super Mario Advanced (the slot machine bonus doesn't have any pictures.)

If anyone else suffers from the same glitches I would love to know I am not the only one. But I am going to have to say to proceed with caution. I was probably 5 hours into Castlevania before I discovered the glitches. Now I am afraid to commit to any game.

If you already read my lastest review on Visualboy Advance, you probably know what I am going to say, if not, here it is: Boycott Advance is great! It has loads of features (with Emulator Enhancer installed), and it can emulate Metroid Zero Mission and Fusion and Spider Man Mysterio's Menace so good, it actually feels like you're playing them on the real Gameboy Advance. Visualboy Advance and Boycott Advance together, you can emulate ANY! GBA ROM.

I have finally put my GBA emulator problems to rest once and for all. Visualboy Advance is good, but it just doesn't suit my requirements for a good, realistic emulator; (saying that took some guts). I've read numerous reviews about Visualboy Advance and how loads of people have had numerous saving problems, so I have trashed Visualboy Advance, all of the backups I made, and the .dmg installer files and have finally made the final GBA emulator transition to Boycott Advance. In English: VISUALBOY ADVANCE DOESN'T SUIT MY EMULATOR NEEDS, BOYCOTT ADVANCE DOES. Email me at spyrokid@dejazzd.com if you want more info on why I have chosen Boycott Advance over Visualboy Advance.

My first review was wrong. BOYCOTT ADVANCE IS LIKE FREAKIN' BULL-****.Visualboy Advance v1.7.4 ROCKS!!! It's like the Gameboy Advance on the Mac OS X.

Boycott Advance ROCKS!!! When I tried running v0.3.9 along with v2.2.1 of Emulator Enhancer, I couldn't save at all. I mean, it did save, but when I closed it, all of the saved data vanished. Late last night, I finally figured out why it wasn't working for me. It was something with The Shell. Until Richard Bannister starts working on Boycott again, I'm sticking with the October 5, 2005 release of it and Emulator Enhancer v1.6.0 I'm also going to do the same thing with KiGb.

Anyway, Boycott Advance and KiGB ROCK!!!
I'd give it 5 stars any day
VBA SUCKS LIKE FREAKIN' BULL-****.

I'm using Boycott Advance 0.3.8 at the moment only because Visual Boy Advance dosn't seem to work on me intel based Mini Mac. All I got on VBA were errors which then lead up to it well.... to stop working all together. So I disided (even thought VBA is still considered better) to try Boycott Advance. And it woorked perfectly..with a few problems as well:

1.like VBA (for me) did not save my progress (was playing Summon Knight 1&2).
And just didn't play Tales of Synphonia (Intro movie type thing started to break up anf freeze and Riviera - The Promised Land ( just got a black screen). So in my opinion VBA is porbably better but if dosn't work for you (your Mac) The Boycott might be for you.
