Hello! I'm a new runner and have decided that I really want to get into speedrunning one of my favorite games of all time LADX. I've seen some amazing runs of this game and I would really like to take part as well! I just wanted to know if any kind of emulation software is allowed to be used for a LADX speedrun. 🙂 I have already noticed that VBA isn't allowed and would like to know what is allowed so that I may get started ASAP. 😃 Any suggestions?

You can use either bgb or gambatte, provided they're recent enough versions.

I've linked the emulators below, and you can find ROMs and save states in the 'Resources' section if you don't have them already.

bgb: http://bgb.bircd.org/
gambatte: https://github.com/Dabomstew/gambatte-speedrun/releases

I'd recommend gambatte r604, it's what I used before switching over to console

And also welcome! Have fun learning and running the game!
