Re: nokia asha 200 support vbag? Help please

Hi etthealien,

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the forums!

 

It seems that VBAG is only available for Series 60 phones and because of that will not install on your Asha 200, which is Series 40. As the application is a video game emulator, thus making it's legality debatable, it is not something that can be promoted or downloaded on Nokia Store.

 

The likely reason for the lack of Series 40 version is that the application requires quite a lot of processing power and even on Series 60 phones the it reportedly can run only 5 frames per second.

 

Hope this helps,

For Nintendo and Gamboy Color, available. But, for GBA, SNES or SEGA I'm not sure, most of them use Symbian OS or Android.

@ classic_sis Oic looks like we have to wait until somebody releases a program or software for S40 devices to play gba games/roms

@ethealien

Yes, but it seems very hard. Non OS phones have limited capability in applications and developers maybe prefer to develop applications for OS phones. If you would like to instal Vbag, you should buy Nokia Symbian phones or Google from OS (it's better for Vbag).

Thank you for your reply.

Hi Etthealien,

 

Please re-read the answers to your posts on this thread. They have already explained that the app you wish to have is not compatible with your phone, and are simply explaining that the app runs on a different platform (Series60), which your phone does not run on.

No, it doesn't. Vbag is available only for Symbian or Android or maybe other operating system.
