How to Increase Game Speed of Visual Boy Advance?

speed-indicator-433919_640

While playing the best and addictive Gameboy Advance games in Visual Boy Advance 1.8.0, I experienced an error. I was playing an old Pokemon game in the beta version of the said emulator and wanted to speed up the game while playing. My aim was to boost up the game only up to 200% or 300% only. So, I used the Space key for this purpose.

As soon as I pressed this key, the speed of the game increased up to 6000% that is too high as compared to the average game speed. I tried another method to reduce it. I just muted the sounds, but that was again in vain. It reduced the speed to 1500% only. The same situation happened with my friends who were trying to boost up the game speed to a reasonable level, but they could not. I tried many techniques and finally, I got the way out to increase the game speed to my desired level. I have discussed the methods below for all of the crazy fans of the GBA games.

Method # 1: Set FrameSkip to 2

  • You should go to the Options.
  • You will find here the option “Frameskip.” Just click this option.
  • Now select “Throttle” that lies at the 2nd number.

It is the default setting, and if you choose the “Throttle” from the list, it will reset the settings to default and thus, enables you to increase the game speed according to your desire.

 Method # 2: Set FrameSkip to 0

Another handy trick you can follow is to set the frameskip to zero. When you set it to zero, its’ performance becomes very smooth, and that also increase the speed of the game to some extent. To do so, you should follow the instructions below.

  • Click the “Options” in the game.
  • Go to the “FrameSkip.”
  • Now select its “Options” from the list appears before you.
  • Here, you will see the option “Emulator.” You should choose it.
  • Now select the “Speed up Toggle” feature from the given options.

That will reset the Frameskip to zero and will boost up the speed of the game to give you a smooth performance.

Method # 3: Mute the Game Sounds

If you follow any of the above-discussed methods and also mute the sounds of the game, it will also provide you with a better speed in the game. To mute the sounds of the GBA game, follow the steps given below.

  • Go to the “Sounds” and select “Options” from here.
  • You will see “Mute” and “Off” options in the list. Select “Mute” for better speed.

Excellent Massage Technique For Back Pain

The best option is to use a massage table because it is specially designed to provide ease, complete with a face support that offers alignment of the spine. If you have no massage chair or table then you can go for alternatives such as a couch, bed, or a floor can be used for the massage. Though every option has its own limitations as there are height and comfort issues that might be faced if you choose any one of them.

Place a soft mat

There is no need of any mat if you are using a massage table, but if  you are using something else like floor or any other table, then don’t forget to place a mat down for the comfort of the patient. The mat should be about 2 inches thick to give a complete comfort. Must take care of hygiene and spread a clean sheet to provide comfort and sanitation for the person. The room should be warm, but not hot. You can play a light music to relax the person and lights should be dim.

Pour massage oil in the palm

Don’t use the oil in large quantity. About one teaspoon of oil is enough, rubbing it with your hands and apply to the back of the patient.

Use gliding movements

After spreading the oil, use gliding movement with your hands along with strokes. Make use of your entire hand and start massaging from the lower back and move towards the upward direction. When you apply the pressure go from lower to upward direction as it is the direction of blood flow. Now make your hands down outside the back in a very light manner. When you bring down your hands, then here is no need to apply pressure just maintain a pressure free contact with your hands. Repeat the step three or five times, but you should consider the pressure from low to medium in order to warm up the back muscles. Neck area and shoulders are the vital parts to provide comfort to the patient so must consider those areas during the massage.

Use petrissage techniques

In it, shorter ad circular strokes are used with relatively more pressure. Palm, knuckles, and fingertips are used in this technique with a little-rounded motion. The movement should be the spine core, then go from corner to corner to the whole back within 2-5 minutes. If you are new in this field, then use only low to medium pressure and avoid applying higher pressure.

Apply percussive strokes

Percussive strokes are the collection of short and recurring contacts with the parts of the hand. Keep your wrist relaxed and use instant motion to perform percussive stroke. There is no need to apply much pressure.

Use muscle lifting technique

Just lock your fingers and seize out your thumb. Now apply pressure by lifting movement. Repeat the process 2-3 times.

Use a fanning technique

Use a fanning movement with the help of your hands by standing at the head of the table. This technique is applied by extending your thumbs and push lightly in a downward direction. This massage is only applied on the either side of the spine.
