    So can the G6 emulate gameboy color games? I don't mean games that can also play on color, which the emulator shows in mono (eg wario land 2), but real gbc games. When I try to play such a game it shows a screen which says it plays only on gbc. I have read about goomba color, but I can't figure out how I add games, because when I add them with goomba front, no file is created. Thanks in advance!!!! [​IMG]

    Goomba Color is your only real choice.

    To add a rom to Goomba Color, you just have to append the rom file to the goomba.gba file. In windows you can do this by putting the rom and goomba.gba in the same folder, opening a command prompt in that folder and using this command:
    Replace ROM FILENAME.gbc with the full filename of the rom you want to use, and replace OUTPUT FILENAME.gba with the filename you want the final product to have. The quotes ARE required.

    Once you have appended the rom to the emulator you just put it on the cart like any other GBA rom.

    You can use a program like the Flash Advance Toolkit to change the rom name if you don't want it to show up as "Goomba" in the G6 menu.

    thanks!!! I tried it and it worked! However, some games are slow and they aren't playable.
