BoycottAdvance (occasionally Boycott Advance) is a cross-platform Game Boy Advance emulator with a wide variety of features:

  • Good compatibility with most public and commercial games
  • Full sound emulation (Direct sound and Game Boy compatible sound)
  • Frame-skipping and automatic frame-skipping, throttle support
  • Real BIOS support
  • Load/save states
  • Windowed and full-screen display
  • WAV/MP3 sound recording
  • Input recording
  • Zip/GZip compressed files support
  • Built-in debugger and graphic viewers
  • Joystick support.

It is fairly CPU intensive. Running it on the Windows platform requires at least a Pentium III processor, while the Apple platform requires at least a G4 processor. Joystick support and full-screen gameplay require purchase of an additional shareware component for the Mac OS X version.

BoycottAdvance Online is the Java applet version of the emulator that you can try directly online.

Retro gaming hacks (O'Reilly Media, 2006) recommends it together with VisualBoyAdvance as excellent choices for GBA emulation, but remarks that "Boycott seems to be a bit more stable" and "is a notch easier to use".
