yup...cant wait to get flash advance to start some good old fasion portable nes gaming... next all we need is a gameboy/gameboy color emulator for it (seriously...i understand why the gba borders the sides of the games, but why border the top and bottom? when you "fullscreen games, they are even more distorted because it goes all the way to the sides, but still doesnt use several lines on the screen)...

I agree with you on the GB/GBC emulator, DiscoStu. I'd also like to see one that brightens up the screen on the GBC games. Some of them (Super Mario Bros DX, Donkey Kong Country) play really dark on the GBA. I can't even see them!

I think thats more down to the GBA screen than any programming issues - I suppose a GB/GBC emulator *could* make everything with a lighter pallette, but it would probably mean the games would look kind of 'washed out'.

And if the TV De Advance gets released they would look *really* crappy....

There is a GB emu for GBA in the works, but not colour :cry:

It's not just the GBC games that are dark, you need a floodlight to play Castlevania: COTM.

I think I'll order a Flash Advance next month, not just for PocketNES or that Speccy emu but because I want to try out that DivX codec for it.

I was thinking the same thing about the Flash Advance... what with Xmas coming up, and me wanting a 'switched' GC from Lik-Sang, I was pretty much thinking, yeah actually, I *might as well* get a GBA Flash linker...

and I *might as well* get a DC coders cable while I'm at it...

and those GC LCD monitors look pretty cool as well...

And I've been hankering after a copy of SNK Vs Capcom 2...

Oh yeah, and Garou...

Damn you Lik-Sang for making me want to spend so much money!!!!

He we go, GB On GBA, I'm guessing this is what you were talking about Syntex, it's a port of Virtual Gameboy.

Ah yes the emu for the Gameboy on a system thats already backwards compatible with it, makes sense. This seems to be a odd way of spending your coding time, this is why I didn't mention it in the non dcemulation thread after all whats the point of it?. :?

There could be a lot of improvements to the GBC emulation on the GBA that a port of another GB emulator could have.

1. Built in Game Genie/Game Shark
2. Super Game Boy support
3. Custom Colors
4. Brightness
5. Save State Support

Label me if newbie if you will - but how do you get an emulator onto the AGB. I understand burning them to DC and having them on a computer and on my pocket pc but how on the AGB?

Thats quite neat, ive never seen anythingof the like. But why a Serial port? I have one for my MP3 played and it SUX! What about USB, or IEEE1394? Is there anything like this for say, GBc, or any other cartridge based system?

Oh and if you were to transfer just a AGB or CGB rom to this rampack would it be able to play or is an emulator needed? Not that i would do such a thing...

hahahaha I believe BUNG had a lock on that idea many years ago...

AFAIK theres been such devices (purely for backup purposes... obviously ;) ) for every single cartridge based console system ever...

How did you think ROMs were made in the first place?

Hey I was just someone who believed emulatorZ were things that changed your cmputer into a system and you play ROMz which were gamez. That was 2 years ago

Now Im thoroughly interested in the emu scene and i have very little knowledge going into it, so I had no clue wha tthe first emulator was and how the first roms were made.

here is another quick dumb question :P how do they get ROM dumps off of Arcade systems (not NEO Geo, but CPs2 and System12 and the like)
