AW: AW: [mythtv-users] Myth Game Emulation - Setup

I just looked at the linked you gave me and it was the same. It doesn't 
really tell us how to add GameBoy. This is what you have there: 

Now you only had to a a game starter to Mythtv. 

Player Name: GBA
Command: /usr/emulators/gba/bin/VisualBoyAdvance -F -4
Rom Path: /usr/emulators/gba/roms

I might be blind though. I will have to look at mythgame setup again. But 
for sure, I didn't see any VisualBoyAdvance listed. What I remember are 
MAME, Atari and so on. 

Like for the zsnes, it was easy because it was already there. All I had to 
do is modify the correct path for bin and roms. 

Please let me know. 

Thanks again.
