I've installed VisualBoyAdvanced from the Ubuntu repos and loaded my ROM into the game. However, when I play I can't get it to go at regular speed, it's stuck at 85% throttle. I've tried manually setting the throttle to 100%, but that doesn't work.
Also, when I hold the spacebar to "speed up", it get's choppy and is unplayable. Any fixes to this? Does this have anything to do with frame-dropping?
Edit: I think it's worth mentioning that I'm not using a GUI for this and I'm on an eeePC. Is it possible that the onboard graphics aren't enough. This seems strange because it's just a GBA game. Nothing fancy.
