authors comment

The latest free VGB 5.5 was released on July 15, 2018. It adds emulation for the "GameBoy Advance Compatibility Mode", where someone plugs a GameBoy Color cartridge into GBA. Some games, such as Shantae, will sense this and enable additional features. I have also added ability to pause replay with UP button and single-step through your gameplay with LEFT and RIGHT buttons. Once satisfied, press UP to resume, or any other button to continue playing.
