Game Boy Color games on GBA emulator
« on: December 06, 2011, 07:02:58 pm »
So I know a few Game Boy Color games have extra features if played on a Game Boy Advance, specifically the Oracle Legend of Zelda games. Is there any way to play to GBC ROMs using the GBA emulator? Obviously, just changing to extension from .gbc to .gba doesn't work. Is this even possible?

If you use opendingux with my gnuboy port (http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingux-releases/gnuboy-for-opendingux/), write "--gbamode" on the "parameters" option of the contextual menu on gmenu2x.

Then all the GBC games will behave just as if they were played on a GBA.

Sweet! Will this work with the regular Dingux GNUBoy as well? I don't really want to switch to OD until it's "Oficially" released.

No joy. Guess I'll have to wait until I decide to go to OD. Anybody know a way to do it on native with ohBoy?

Goomba Color isn't ported to the a320, right?

Goomba colour is an application that helps you turn a/group of .gbc roms into a .gba Rom(to use on the .gba emulator). Similar to pocketnes.

Oh, I misunderstood what Goomba is. I tried it, and no joy. The GBA emulator just hangs at the Loading screen.
