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 filtered GBC colors, so they look more like in the real hardware.
- 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.



Download link: https://app.box.com/s/xz1ltslz9nq7n1f0uu37eo2josmv62iv

NOTES:
- Border images are 100% compatible with the ones from Ohboy.
- Color palettes are NOT compatible with the ohboy ones. They use a different format.
- For instructions on how to create palettes, or where to place external files like palettes, 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.

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
