Hello! I am a new member of rockbox and enjoy rockboy ever so much! I am not trying to compare to iBoy but I hear many things in how it is faster. I never tried it myself because I am loyal to rockbox. Can you please (begging) find a different emulator or update rockboy to get these roms working faster? The pokemon ones are fast including color but when I want to play other color games they are really slow! I think if you can take the time to update it many people will be greatful. Thank you for your time.

This task depends upon

There was an update a few weeks ago. Optimization is hard work and takes a long time. iBoy and Rockboy are both based on gnuboy. Each branch has grown its separate way and its not easy to merge all of the changes found in iBoy.

Because there *isn't* another emulator for Rockbox. It's Rockboy or nothing.
