    Whats yours? I personally like the 2004Mbit compo game from gbadev, PocketNES, LOCKJAW, Luminesweeper, and GSMplayer.

    It goes by one name.

    POWDER

    You could get the superior PC or DS version though.

    Goomba: For games that need savestates and problem games that don't work in Lameboy like Donkey Kong, Pocket Bomberman, Super Mario Land 2, etc.

    That's about it...anything I think of has a better DS equivalent.

    Just put wav's in the wav folder and press go or run or whatever. Make sure the wavs are 24bit.

    Herg's Solitaire. The graphics were brilliant and it was miles better than any version you could find in stores.

    No, once your run the "Go" file, all you need to do is copy gsm.gba to your flashcart.

    I second the mentioning of Herg's Solitaire. Tons of card games in one small multiboot-capable file. Luminesweeper and Lockjaw are other good homebrew games.

    GSM Player was probably my most often-used application. GBA JPEG viewer and Gameboy Book Reader are also good for media viewing.

    Other good applications are the emulators, though most of them are superseded by DS versions. PocketNES, SNES Advance, Snezziboy, Goomba, TI83emu, etc.

    Probably Blast Arena Advance. I liked that game so much I bought it when it turned into one of those 'homebrew cart projects'

    I got another one: how could I forget Bookreader (and its PC application Makebook). Text file reader with a twist; it was designed for e-books so it let you set chapter and page breaks within the text files before packing them for the GBA to make them easier to navigate. Fantastic for carrying half-done character sheets or walkthroughs to bail you out if you get stuck and are nowhere near a PC.

    So yes, Herg's Solitaire and Bookreader. [​IMG]
