    I just installed Advanced Wars from ishare and I am not able to play it. When i open the game i see the controls but theres a black screen. It says: "sorry, but ipsp requires a gameboy advance" or something like that. I am running 1.1.3.

    do me a favor, dont give advices anymore

    you need the gba_bios.bin if you are getting that error
    just google "gba_bio.bin" and download it
    after that, put it in your ipod manually
    to do that use iphone pc suite, iphonebrowser, ibrikr, SSH client, or w/e you want (PM me if you need with any of these)
    go to the very first folder of your iPod (hit "up" button till it cannot go farther)
    click applications
    find gpsPhone.app
    drag and drop the gba_bio.bin (dont rename it) into the folder
    now you must chmod this file to 755
    if you don't know how, pm me or post here ill return to check
    if you do know, enjoy playing advance wars (im on lvl 2 after the tutorial... lol)

    from my experience of playing advance wars, it should not lag
    but a lot of other games lag
    all gba pokemon games lag
    i suppose RTS games like advance wars lag less because you take turns etc.
