    Hi as shown above I have the Flash2Advance and GB Bridge. Does anyone know the easiest way to set it up?

    GBATEMP! (why did I scream that out?)

    its been dormant for months now, I haven't tried it out and now I'm itchin' to do so.
    Its been my dream to play GB/GBC roms on the original hardware, especially on my
    "Backlit" DMG gameboys and Gameboy Lights...

    I want to do the exact same thing, but I'm sure I won't be as lucky as you to score such a rare sight :P I'll probably end up getting one of those cheap USB GB cartridge (no multisave support... BOO!) ;)

    I've always wanted to see how a GB Bridge worked, so if you actually get it to work, post lots o' pics :D

    sure I will! My friend Schlupi knows a lot about these things, I'll try contacting him...

    Oh I'll pay someone adept at fixing hardware a fair price if they can get this thing to work...

    Sounds like just the right thing for @[member='emigre']

    I jelly about the Flash Advance + GB Bridge.
    Though there pretty much only one game I'd put on it, so it'd most probably be cheaper to buy a retail cartridge.

    The NGP flashcard is a parallel linker, you just need to get the software for it :unsure:

    I have the exact same F2A and the GB Bridge but need help setting them up also. Any links to software for the Flash2Advance cart would be nice too.


    Edit: I also have a GBA Movie player that came with the bundle. Dise it just play movies or are there other uses for it?

    IIRC just putting the Gameboy roms onto the F2A cart using the F2A software should work.
    It's been a while since I've used mine.

    I have the drivers, software, and the boot loader for GB GBC. It was a bitch to find the right boot loader. I have the correct files burnt to a disc so I'll share them. I got mine off ebay a few years back with 3 f2a cards for $60. I loaded mine with all the supper rare awesome gb games like trip world peetan and avenging spirit

    that's not going to most versions of the software don't work with gb roms then you have to have the right boot loader

    I have a Pocket Linker for Neo Geo Pocket/Color. Love that thing. If you need the software, I can upload it to filetrip.

    You need to use it with a computer that has Windows XP as newer windows don't support parallel ports. And no, you can't just get one of those parallel to USB things.

    You need to have a driver installed in your computer called 'giveio.sys'. Then you can just run the program and it'll work. I can provide that for you as well, if you need it.

    Here are the files that work with the GB bridge. If someone would be nice enough to put these on file trip that would be great. Two things, The drivers might mess with your com ports and make it difficult to use other linkers. I have an old laptop that I picked up for free that I use with the F2A. The other thing is some GB and GBC games don't work like Shante, others have graphic glitches. I have 51 GB and GBC games on mine I weeded out incompatable roms over time. Also if you need some instruction just ask. It's a bit of a pain in the ass to figure out.

    One thing I noticed about the F2A GB bridge and some of the GB multi 101 game carts is that the GB games have messed up color palettes when played on a SP or GBC. I'm thinking that the GB bios is only interpreting color for one game.

    *looks at N64 and GB adapters*
    Oh, you bas***d! And I mean that in the good way. I'm more than a little jealous of that bad-ass classic gear! :P

    Congratuations and good luck with fixing the N64 cart.
