  |   Version : 1.5 Beta                 Files : BOOB!BOY.ZIP		    |
  |  Released : December 22nd, 2000      Platform : Sega Dreamcast (DC)    |

  |  What's New!							    |
  |  ------ ----							    |
  |									    |
  |  Version 1.5  (22/12/00)						    |
  |  -----------							    |
  |									    |
  |  -Frameskip implemented - Boob!boy should now be faster with only a    |
  |  small amount of frameskipping noticeable.				    |
  |  For example, Super Mario Land without doubt now runs at FULL SPEED.   |
  |  -Super Gameboy Support added					    |
  |  -Fixed a memory problem that meant memory wasn't being freed up after |
  |  the game was exited and hence when you had played 4/5 games the dc    |
  |  would run out of memory and crash. You should now be able to play as  |
  |  many different games as you want without having to reset the dc!      |
  |  -Swapped around A and B keys to make it more like a real gameboy!	    |
  |  -New menus - a license screen is now displayed explaining that        |
  |  Boob!boy is not licensed or endorsed by Sega.			    |
  |  Also a menu screen has been implemented which currently only features |
  |  a play game option... (pretty pointless at the moment then!)          |
  |  -Made game-select screen more user-friendly by speeding up page-select|
  |  and game-select movements						    |
  |  -Fixed bug causing a delay before loading the game to be played	    |
  |  -Implemented load from file functions saving much-needed memory...    |
  |  This also has resulted in a speed-up in the emulation since Video Ram |
  |  can now be used for more important tasks!				    |
  |  -Found and "zapped" other little bugs in the code, which although     |
  |  didn't cause any problems in current versions would have done so in   |
  |  the future.							    |
  |									    |
  |  Version 1.1a (17/12/00)						    |
  |  ------- ---							    |
  |									    |					    |
  |  -Up to 2000 gameboy games now supported on one cd!                    |
  |  -Fixed a bug that caused Boob!boy to crash when more than 999 games   |
  |  were loaded onto a cd.						    |
  |									    |
  |  Version 1.1							    |
  |  ------- ---							    |
  |									    |
  |  Controller fixes:                                                     |
  |    - "down" works!  :)                                                 |
  |    - switched to D-pad                                                 |
  |    - holding button down works (i.e. Mario jumps properly/higher now)  |
  |                                                                        |
  |  Other fixes:                                                          |
  |    - Files can have the ".gb" extension now -- no renaming required.   |
  |									    |
  |  Version 1.0							    |
  |  ------- ---							    |
  |									    |
  |  First Version - slight problems with controllers in-game		    |
  |  No sound / No super gameboy support				    |
  |									    |
  |                                                                        |
  |  How to burn Boob!boy:	                                            |
  |  =====================                                                 |
  |  1) Extract the supplied Boobboy.zip file into an empty directory.     |
  |  2) Put any GameBoy games into the ROMS directory. (They can have an   |
  |     extension of .GB or .GBC.)  					    |
  |  3) Burn everything to a cd, making sure that the /wince and /roms     |
  |     directories are also burnt.  Be sure to burn as Mode 1/CDROM, not  |
  |     Mode 2/XA!  You can do multisession if you want and add additional |
  |     ROMs to the disc in a later session.                               |
  |  4) Turn on the dreamcast, insert bootcd, insert Boob!boy cd and enjoy!|
  |                                                                        |
  |  Instructions / Controls:						    |
  |  ============================                                          |
  |   Press the Start button to pass through the 3 splash screens          |
  |									    |
  |   At the Main Menu selection screen, merely press Start to "Play Game" |
  |									    |
  |   Once at the Game selection menu, pressing UP and DOWN on the D-pad   |
  |   will allow you to move the Blue Selection Box up and down through    |
  |   the games. LEFT and RIGHT on the D-pad will allow you to move        |
  |   through the pages of games.                                          |
  |									    |
  |   Once you have decided on which game you would like to play press     |
  |   Start to begin playing it!  Note that you may need to hold the Start |
  |   button down briefly to start the game loading.  You should then see  |
  |   the Boob!boy loading screen... GameBoy black & white games take      |
  |   almost no time to load, whereas 4mb colour games will obviously give |
  |   you the chance to enjoy the splendour of the loading screen!         |
  |									    |
  |   In-game controls are as follows:					    |
  |   Dreamcast D-PAD = Gameboy D-PAD					    |
  |   Dreamcast A button = Gameboy B Button				    |
  |   Dreamcast B button = Gameboy A Button				    |
  |   Dreamcast Start button = Gameboy Start Button			    |
  |   Dreamcast X button = Gameboy Select Button			    |
  |									    |
  |   Press the Dreamcast Y button to take you back to the game select     |
  |   screen!								    |
