    I don't suppose anybody has one of these and is willing to record a video of them using it? I used to have one and I want to nostalgia over it.

    I tried youtube but all I found were broken models, and pictures of codes being used in-game (not the actual menus where you input codes and save/load state and such).

    I might be able to help you out tomorrow, if I can find the damn thing in the piles of old crap.

    How's that? No, its not me. I googled "gameboy colour gameshark" and it was in the first page of results.

    EDIT: The guy using doesn't seem to know what a few things are (e.g. Game Trainer, which is, I believe, a tool for finding cheats)

    Well, I could only find the GB version, not the GBC version. I don't know if it matters that much, as I think they were the same except color in the menus and GBC compatibility. I did find the GB Game Genie as well, though. I took a picture and could still do a short vid I guess, but you do have what SifJar posted.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I've still got the GBC one. I took a quick picture of it:

    Anything specific you want with it? (Besides knowing how difficult it is to turn the damn thing on?)

    Alright. After cleaning the little sucker, it seems to work perfectly, so I took a few pics of the menus. I tried using my GBC, but the screen is too dim for my camera to pick it up. It's still pretty awful on my SP, heh. I can get higher quality pictures later, but right now I don't have a camera with me, so I'm just using my cell phone camera...Which I might add is pretty awful.

    Enjoy

    I had that: [​IMG]
    Don't have it anymore, since I sold it to my friend.

    One of my other friends has one of those Gameshark shown in the earlier posts, but one of the pins is bent so it won't work.

    That was it!

    Yes, that was the model and those were the menus!

    I'm so excited. That brings back so many happy memories.

    I might just get one and some gameboy games some time... since as I can see it works with an SP.
