VBA 1.7.2

Just started running this for fun. I wanted to know why VBA 1.7.2 is the only allowed emulators? Do other emulators cause glitches or unfair advantages? The main reason I'm concerned about using VBA is that overworld flying runs slow when approaching locations that can be landed in (cities, desert, etc.) I do not have this issue on RetroArch, so I'm not sure what I've done wrong in the set up. If other emulators are not allowed whatsoever, can anyone offer assistance with optimizing VBA 1.7.2 to run world map sequences properly?

i would just use bizhawk

One workaround I use for it is turning off the in game music but that might not be an option if you want keep it on. Other then the mods allowing a different emulator entirely there's not much that can be done.

How would I/we go about appealing for different emulator usage then? Disabling sound, if this is the fix, is an odd choice for optimal speedrunning.

Either by contacting one of the mods of the game or wait until they see this thread. I've also asked in the discord about this so we'll just have to wait.

Ok so I was told that the decision was made because bizhawk ran the game faster than the original console at the time, which isn't allowed. Bizhawk has been updated in the meantime and should run the game more accurately these days but I don't know if we'll be allowed to use it. Other than that I haven't heard anything about allowing other emulators someday. Still, if there's enough interest for it who knows what might happen.

Thanks for the info Flint! I've been busy, but I'll attempt to contact a Moderator soon to confirm any additional options.
