hey all! just wanted to know if the Z1 on gba was able to stand on the nes leader boards? with eunos darkwing and lack.
iv been running Z1 on the game cube from wot i can tell the only change is the way you (up A) and reset the console. to (up A) you press start like normal then select and up.
to reset you press L and R on the gba and it will bring up and new screen made for the gba that give you the option to continue (does nothing) reset (resets console just like normal) and sleep mode witch is normal for gba games to save power.
so resetting is a tiny tiny bit slower

If you look at the Zelda 1 boards, you’ll see that the GBA is listed as a console, so yes, you can do runs on it. People will deter you from it and will suggest running NES on emulator if you don’t have a console, but you’re free to run on whatever version you choose.

up+a is banned in the more popular categories so that won’t really matter if you’re running those categories. The GBA versions is also slower overall compared to NES so keep that in mind as well when deciding if you want to use that version.

If you have more questions, I’d suggest joining the Zelda 1 discord server as well as asking questions on the game’s forums instead of the Zelda series forums (nobody really checks these). You’ll get much faster responses in those places as opposed to here.
