    I'm considering buynig a DS but I want to know is there an emulator that you can put on your DS to play games from previous gameboys, such as the original and the colour?

    P.S. I'm British which is why theres its spelt coloUr

    The GBC was called Gameboy 'Color' even in the UK.

    Anyway, for GB and GBC use Lameboy 0.12. For GBA you need a slot-2 device for DS/DSLite or an iPlayer for DSi.

    No, you misunderstand. Gameboy Color wasn't a description of the console, it was the registered trademark name. The official name of the handheld console you refer to is a 'Gameboy Color' no matter how the word 'colour' is spelt in other parts of the world.

    This isn't strictly accurate. The iPlayer is in no way for the DSi; it's equally compatible (perhaps more so counting updates which lock out flash cards) with an older DS model.

    yes but just because its teh registered trade mark doesn't meen it's called that, no one calls toys r us Toys "R" Us do they know? Look stop being a fool of a took and just accept that ill spelt it with a big capital U every time and theres no reasoning or logic no matter how infaluble or logical or sensible will ever make me change that

    His name's already "Mangaissofun", I don't think he's really going for the "people who aren't going to think I'm a cunt" market.

    And cool, glad we cleared up that iPlayer deal.

    Has anyone here specified that he needs to get a flash card anyway? A DS by itself isn't going to play any GB or GBC games.


    You need to learn how to type and spell. And until you do that, you have no reason to criticize the way anyone else spells anything, especially when he's right. It is called a Gameboy Color no matter where you are, who you are, or what your spelling prefrences are. It's a product, names are not bound to a correct english spelling.

    I'm currently imagining how much of a success you'd be if you were a webmaster.

    Mangaissofun: NOOOO! Why isn't it working? I refuse to use color.

    For some reason I thought this was the official logo when I first saw it. But then I realized that it was just colored text. [​IMG]
