    Update
    [​IMG]

    A new test version of GNUBoyDS, the GB EMU, has been released. According to the bad software translated Web site, it appears that issues with sprites and backgrounds have been worked on. I sincerely apologize for the lack of a proper translation and a change log. Please note that you must currently rename your ROMs to "mario.gb" so that they load.



    Special thanks to Normmatt for the news!

    Cool. Lameboy never gets updates, so it's good to see another project starting up. Any info on the performance of this first version? Does it even work (it is a test, after all), and how is it compared to Lameboy?

    Actually Another World, I tested this with iDeaS a few hours ago (can't find my SD card reader atm) and though it's a port of the same GNUboy emulator, it seems to be an entirely new project. This version doesn't have sound, only emulates the GB (not GBC), and has graphical corruption with the sprites (most backgrounds are okay). For a first release it's not all that bad really, but there's much that can be improved.

    It has DLDI support, but no file chooser menu. You must rename your game to "mario.gb" and put it on the root of your card to play it. I didn't test save support.

    Lameboy works amazing well for me (although I would LOVE the possible gameshark/link cable fetures) why should I change?

    I say, don't bother switching from your favorite emulator. Unless you're hankering for some extra feature like broken netplay or video recording.
