Most importantly an option to move the GBA screen around on the phone screen would be awesome. Also I would like to position A/B individually (or swap them around) my optimal right thumb placement would be to hover over A not B, since A is used a lot more. But everything else is great

I've tried a bunch of GBA emulators, and this one, while not perfect, overall is the best one for me. There's some light stutters, but the sound quality is excellent. Also I contacted the dev with a performance issue I had with a new update, and it got fixed within a week. Highly recommended

My only problem is the cheat codes, when I tried to endter the cheat code to get into the debug room in Mother 3, it didn't work, I really hope you fix this issue
