    Batch Converting GBX & GBC to GBA for EZ4

    Got my EZ4 yesterday so I've been playing around with emulators...

    Came across a YouTube Tutorial which pointed in the right direction;



    I got "Goomba Front (Color)" from the supplied link: DOWNLOAD

    I didnt want convert games together and found the App tedious,
    So I got the "EmulatorFile.gba" and combined the emulator with
    GBX & GBC roms by command line;

    SINGLE CONVERSION
    Windows:
    Copy /B EmulatorFile.gba+gamename.gbc gamename.gba​
    Linux:
    cat EmulatorFile.gba gamename.gbc > gamename.gba​

    BATCH CONVERSION (Linux)
    for i in *.gbc
    do
    echo EmulatorFile.gba | cat - "$i" > "${i%gbc}gba"
    done​

    Obviously for GBX you would change the extention from .gbc to .gb
    It doesnt take long at all to convert all the roms to .gba

    Next up I downloaded "ezgba v0.2.0a-2" from here: DOWNLOAD
    I used EZGBA to batch all the new files over to the MicroSD Card with default settings


    Adding Splash Screen to GBX & GBC roms

    I would really like to know how I would go about adding a splash screen...


    Batch Converting (Sega) SMS & GG to GBA for EZ4

    I downloaded "SMS Advance v2.5" from here: DOWNLOAD
    The App works fine if you want to do each game one at a time,
    I tried using command line to add the emulator "smsadvance.gba"
    but the resulting files do not work, I'm not sure what I'm missing


    Batch Converting NES to GBA for EZ4

    I downloaded "PocketNES 6-13-2012" from here: DOWNLOAD
    Again tried using command line to add the emulator "pocketnes.gba"
    but the resulting files do not work, I'm not sure what I'm missing
