    GOOMBA COLOR
    An alpha version has just been released: it is truly awesome. A lot of GBC games are fully playable, some have graphical glitches and only a very few have slow speed. Remember, this is an alpha version only! It is not the final version!

    You might wonder: what's the point, as GBA already supports GBC games?. Well, the Nintendo DS and GB Micro don't. Also, you can play GBC roms with this emulator on any GBA flash cart.

    Great news! [​IMG], though Legend of Zelda Oracle of ages and Oracle of time hardly work.
    Survival kids is very glitchy [​IMG]

    I'm going to try some more in a minute.

    EDIT: So... can anybody recommend me a good game?
    EDIT2: Resident Evil: Gaiden works, only you can't see the sprites...
    EDIT3:Metal Gear Solid: Playable but glitchy.
    EDIT4: Harvest Moon 3: Playable but glitchy. Names show as "OOOO"

    well, I've tried it, and it worked... I played a little, sneaked in the jungle for a few seconds (knocked the wall...) a little glitchy but playable!
    you should try Wario Land 3, Zelda DX, Tetris DX, Super Mario Bros DX (wow DX games!), etc...
    the next version will probably fix the gfx glitches [​IMG]

    I see what I've done wrong. My bad [​IMG]

    EDIT:
    Harvest Moon: Very glitchy. playable but nearly everything is black and yellow
    Harvest Moon 2: Playable. Same problem with the names that show as "OOOO" and glitchy.
    EDIT2:
    Lemmings doesn't even boot.
    Like Costello said Zelda DX works very well.

    This is fantastic. The GBC has a whole library of awesome games that everyone should play. Pokemon Gold/Silver, Mario Golf/Tennis, Zelda DX/Oracle of Ages + Time, Dragon Warrior Monsters + Dragon Quest, Wario Land, the list goes on. [​IMG]

    FINALLY! I'm so happy about this, I've been waiting for this for a long time, and thought it would never happen. So many people seemed against it, saying it wasn't possible.

    they didin't say it was impossible,they said it was unlikely,as the GBA/GBA SP already had a GB/GBC function that didin't need emulation.it would be like making a Playstation emulator for the Playstation2
