GNUboy for Gemei A330 v1.0.5 beta 3 by David Cervilla
=====================================================

This is a beta release of the GB / GBC emulator GNUboy. This work is based
on the original GNUboy port for the Gemei A330 released by cex, and the
latest GNUboy v1.0.5 source code from https://code.google.com/p/gnuboy/

Changelog
---------


09/07/2016 beta 3

- Fixed sound channel 3 (wave). Now music sounds much better :)
- Other minor fixes I don't remember


07/04/2013 beta 2

- Fixed "Select" key assignment.
- Savestates working without .rc file editing:
"Select" + "L" = Save State
"Select" + "R" = Load State
- Changed default savestate behaviour. Now each savestate has the same name as
  the rom filename. You have one savestate for each game (for now).


03/04/2013 beta 1 - Initial release

- Updated to the latest GNUboy source code.
- Disabled sound channel 3 (wave) that was causing sound problems (until I can
  solve them). Now it sounds pretty good.
- Added preliminary volume control.
- Added the CPU high speed initialization code used by native emulators (now it
  runs at full 60 fps for most games).
- Reassigned key bindings

Installation
------------

Extract the file "GNUboy.cc" and copy it to the desired installation folder on
the GA330.

Usage
-----

Go to the "Applications" tab on your system menu, navigate to the folder were you
previously installed GNUboy, and run it.

The emulator starts in a file explorer to select the ROM you want to execute (only
plain unzipped GB/GBC roms for now). Select a rom with 'A' button to run it.

In game keys are assigned as follows:

D-Pad   UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT
SELECT   Button SELECT
START   Button START
A   Button A
B   Button B
X   Exit emulation
Y   Reset Game
L   Volume Down
R   Volume Up
SELECT + L   Save State
SELECT + R   Load State

Download link: GNUboy-GA330-b3.rar

Source code: gnuboy-latest_src.zip

Thank you very much!
I tested it, the SELECT button doesn't work.
And could make it save.
Build a file named gnuboy.rc in the same dictionary, add a few words:

Code: [Select]
set vmode 216 144 24
#set vmode 230 154 24

unbind R
unbind L
unbind C   # Y button
unbind tab

bind R savestate
bind L loadstate
bind tab +select

set savedir A:/GAME/GBC
set savename "save"

So you can save with R button and load with L button.

Hope you could improve the simulation and add a menu.

Ok. I'll have a look and try to add this to the executable, so people don't have to manually edit the .rc file.

I hope to be able to add key combination support, so we can keep volume controls, and adding a basic menu is next on my to-do list.

gnuboy.rc should be in the same folder with gnuboy.cc

Hi
I have unzipped the gnuboy rar and put the gnuboy cc file in a folder called gbc,then I go to applications and open the folder and try to start the gnuboy.cc file but nothing happens.
Can anyone give me a help to run this emulator.
Thanks

On mine, I have the Gnuboy.cc file in the Stock Memory\GAME\3D folder and it works great. Not sure if that's the problem, but it's worth a shot.

Thanks for your help, i put the gnuboy.cc file where you said and it didnt show up on my gemei.
i noticed the only files showing were with c3s extensions,so i change the gnuboy.cc file to gnuboy.cs3 and everything worked.
Thank you again for your help.....

I've stopped working on this emulator for some time. I've uploaded my latest version on first post with sources.
