OhBoy
« on: August 22, 2013, 03:09:28 am »
Here is the latest version of Ohboy (GB/GBC emulator).

Latest build: 20141226

Changes since last version:
- Disabled ROM browser. Now it uses gmenu2x rom browser.




Download links for the latest OPK executable:

primary link: http://www.gcw-zero.com/downloads
mirror link: https://app.box.com/s/pd6bw70g39q3ze3jsj9g


Source code is available here: https://github.com/hi-ban/ohboy

A pack of borders, in PNG format with transparencies (RECOMMENDED) https://app.box.com/s/d373fjejrhgyita3ngam

A pack of palette files is available here (UPDATED  20140731) https://app.box.com/s/l1vpfgddv9t0pqbi6vt6

Delete previous Ohboy OPKs, and copy the new OPK file to the /media/data/apps folder (the apps folder)
Borders go in the /media/data/local/home/.ohboy/borders directory.
Palettes go in the /media/data/local/home/.ohboy/palettes directory.

Are the packs in the links already included in this update?

No. they are separate downloads.

In previous versions, the user was limited to the palettes and borders included in the release, because border names and palettes were hardcoded into the executable. Now they aren't hardcoded anymore, so the user can add and remove palettes and borders, or he can create their own ones.

Note: i've changed the format of the borders and some paths, so old stuff don't work anymore.
If you were using an older version of Ohboy, you should delete it before installing this one.

If you were using an older OPK version of ohboy, you should delete the OPK file and the "$HOME/.config/ohboy/" folder. (new release stores things in "$HOME/.ohboy/" instead).

Could you make the default ROM path to $HOME? I fear some users might be lost trying to get there.
I will try to make you a better 1.5x upscaler, that one doesn't look too great (two neighbour pixels don't have the same color).

This is cool cool cool!

Is there any news on hardware scaling through ipu on the zero. I like it really much on native lion_rsm emus for the dingoo.

fosamax, i have no news about the IPU, but i'm sure it will be high priority for the devs.

All I can say is.....WOW!!!
Fantastic release! Thank you for all your hard work hi-ban!
Gameboy color games look fantastic now with the new full screen scaler(thanks paul also!)
Could the fullscreen scaler  be implemented in other emus? snes9x for example?

This scalers are programmed to upscale resolution X into resolution Y.
For SNES new scalers should be written, as the SNES resolution is different than the GB.
