    I just recieved my SuperCard SD for GBA, and when I'm trying to play GBC games, they appear to have very glitchy graphics. Is it just my rom, or is there a fix for this?
    Lemme know please!

    You should use a newer version of Goomba

    How do I go about upgrading that? Just download Goomba and put it on there? Is there any way to upgrade the built in emulators?

    Edit - Thanks alot [​IMG]

    Edit 2 - I think it may just be my Rom. I tried 2 other GBC games and they weren't glitchy. It might just be my Pokemon Crystal rom.

    Keep in mind that you're not running the GBC games directly. The Supercard runs them in an emulator called Goomba Color, using a version that you cannot upgrade manually.

    I'd suggest getting the latest version of Goomba Color from http://www.dwedit.org/gba/goombacolor.php and creating your own compilation of GBC games using the guide at http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/Goomba

    You'll then need to patch it with the Supercard patcher before putting it on your card or at least you had to do this last time I checked. True, this is not nearly as convenient as just launching the *.gbc files directly from your card, but it provides you with crucial updates to the emulator. For instance, in newer versions the border is all black rather than changing with the GBC background.
