I already have a SNES emulator up and running and it runs smooth. Cool I figure a GB/GBA emulator would run smooth too. one problem. i cant find one. that works in wary 5.5 Sad

I would suggest MESS, simply because it's awesome and it supports many classic game consoles (like the SNES) and computers (like the IBM PC Model 5150).

MESS also supports the Super Boy adapter as well.

I am not positive on how well the GBA emulation works, but it is also supported by MESS.

I must add: I don't know if there is a mess emulator package for wary or not.

PS: I used to have a SNES, GB, GB Color, and Super Boy.

I don't know... I'm reluctant to suggest MESS as a primary alternative. I'd rather use an emulator refined to one system before resorting to MESS, if possible.
Not that MESS is bad, but it does take a fair bit of getting used to, the emulation I've tried with it (multiple systems) can indeed be a little less refined than you'd hope, and it can also be hard to find a package for it (well, one that wasn't created pre-Puppy 4.3.1, anyway.)

If possible, try for VBA/VBA-M, or Mednafen, first. Packages for those (as well as MESS, probably) can possibly be found in posts in this subforum.

You might also try contacting sc0ttman, the maintainer of Puppy Arcade... if the packages you can find by looking through his archives (below) don't work, he might be able to help get you a version that does. The problem is, I think he might only respond to posts in the most recent Puppy Arcade thread, at the moment. Sad

His archives:
