What I love about this: is it is open source - community created.
So, while you are complaining about the "owner" and "author" and how terrible your experience is, its not going to fix itself.
All the community apps come with a refund - all you have to do is uninstall (edit: a bit snippy but really...). Or, you could install the NDK - download the source code from Github and contribute instead (I know, wishful thinking).
Edit: Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure Justin put instructions somewhere on how to move the buttons and modify them via INI in a folder. But again, why not just fork, and patch the Github release. Have some users beta-test it. Post the BAR here when its ready and passed testing - and work with Justin to figure out the best way to merge the fork (most likely a merge request will suffice). Just be prepared for a lot of feedback on button positions etc.
Edit: Added github link Added the simple fix from the first page on this one.

Or, you could follow the instructions here and add these files on your PB: Emulators and Emulator News for BlackBerry PlayBook (someone else linked to it on the first page).
There are no awards for attendance You have to earn open source apps with effort sometimes.

In case anyone is interested, this emulator works perfectly on my Z10! Just side load it, and you're good to go (after putting your ROMs in /misc/gbcolor-pb/roms which I needed to create manually).
The single issue I have is that the D-pad is distorted looking, and a little too small. But every game I've tried has been playable, looks great, sounds great, and saves perfectly.

Happy to hear that it is working on the z10. I wonder if it would be possible to link devices in game. At least I can copy the save data over for work lol. Awesome app. Keep the updates rolling.. A gameshark would be cool for this too..

I had to first upload the roms to my Dropbox account, which is linked ot my Z10, and then copy and paste them from there into the proper directory. Or, if you want, you could connect your Z10 to your computer and put them in the directory directly from there.
I originally tried emailing them to myself, but it wouldn't allow me to open the rom files and thus save them where I needed. I bet you could put them on an SD card though and copy/paste them where needed.

Does this even work? vbampb doesn't work for ****, the sound is completely distorted and the gameplay is jerky as Hell. The main version sported by Froggyface (v188.8.131.52) doesn't even generate any game folders so doesn't even load up LOL and the other updated version doesn't have working sound.

VBAm port for playbook ( GBA/GB/GBC emu)
If you want the gameplay and the sound to be better change the settings of the vbam.cfg file using ghost commander.

With this settings the gameplay is fast and the sound is ok in this roms I have: Zelda the minish cap, pokemon ruby, zelda four swords, rayman advance, metal slug advance, megaman zero 3, kirby and the amazing mirror.

Hi guys I'm getting this message: "ERROR: You do not have any ROMS! Add gb/gbc ROMS to: "Shared/misc/gbcolor-pb/roms" using either WIFI Sharing or Desktop Software"
I do have ROMS installed in there which I added manually using Stuff app; what desktop software does it mean? BB Link? Thanks

Brilliant works 100 percent
Sideloading was possible only via wifi development mode as usb port is damaged and using 12volt rapid charger so i used the dpbb software for my laptop and accessed playbook through wifi playbook ip address then went to the folder misc then sideloaded gbcolor pb then google the roms for it then runned it playing pokemon silver for the minute theres 2 issues lags and speeds up went entering new towns and second is there a gameshark or cheat function with the software to have masterballs and rare candy as the gbcolor emulator has no cheat function shame really would be fully complete emulator with added cheat and has anyone ever come up with wifi battle for it like playbook link so other players can battle others similar to link cable via wifi mode even if possible like playbook ip address linked to second playbook ip address
