Visual Boy Advance is an emulator that you can download on to your computer. The emulator allows you to play a number of Game Boy Advance games on your PC. When playing a game on your VBA emulator, you have the option to both speed up and slow down your game play. Slowing down your game can help you get past areas of the game that are too quick for you or difficult to complete.

Open up the folder that contains the VBA file. Double-click on the file to open it up.

Click on "File" and select "Open." Find the game you would like to play in your folder and click on the "Open" button.

Select "Options" on the toolbar and scroll down to "Frame Skip."

Select "Throttle" and then "Other" at the bottom of the drop-down menu.

Enter a percentage between 5 and 99 to slow down the game. For example, inserting 50 will cause the game to run at half speed. Click on the "OK" button to save the changes.
