Gambatte-GCW0
« on: March 22, 2018, 06:38:27 pm »
This is a new port based on an updated Gambatte core (r572) with a few core modifications.

Features:

- High accuracy and compatibility.
- Completely reworked menu with sound and animations which simulates the GB screen.
- Several upscalers to choose from (hardware and software).
- Supports external color palettes for monochrome games.
- Supports external color filter files for GBC games.
- Supports external DMG/GBC  border images.
- Supports using GB/GBC bios to have the "Nintendo"/"Game Boy" logos on game start.
- Supports LCD ghosting effect, to correctly display games like Castlevania II Belmont's Revenge, Chikyuu Kaihou Gun ZAS...
- Supports preview images in savestates.
- Supports Game Genie and GameShark cheats.
- Supports per-game settings



Find the latest release here: https://github.com/bardeci/dot-matrix-simulator/releases

Sample palettes: https://app.box.com/s/eydcx10qx5hy5ffbyc9ph68g40rtmgth
Sample filters: https://app.box.com/s/rw8s44npwjickz6r3ftfhyrsnwiibl1u

NOTES:
- Border images are NOT compatible with the ones from Ohboy.
- Color palettes and filter files are NOT compatible with the ohboy ones. They use a different format.
- For instructions on how to create palettes/filters, or where to place external files like palettes, filters, borders, bios files, etc refer to the manual included in the OPK.

You can read the manual by highlighting the Gambatte icon in Gmenu2x and pressing SELECT. Then choose "Show manual of Gambatte" to read the manual.

Search for "Game Boy boot rom" and rename the rom file to gb_bios.bin

love it, you've outdone yourself again hi-ban :) bios support wooo!  navigating the menu feels (and sounds :-*) like a joy everything is well organized also really like how it changes from a gb to gbc colored background depending on which you're currently playing.  very nice touch thanks for everything!  and also for the added ghosting option to ohboy

Features:
- High accuracy and compatibility.
- Completely reworked menu with sound and animations which simulates the GB screen.

what animations were added?
--------------------------------------

the animations are very slick especially the menu entry/exit :)

any plans to add button mapping?  the standard setting is fine for games in general although there are a few that would benefit from a swap/customizing
