    Is there currently any gameboy emulator on 3DS which supports the default original color palettes?

    I played gameboy games using my Super Gameboy which had the feature, and I really hate to now play gameboy games without the added colors, its just not the same.

    GameYob does, I do believe. It also supports the GBC bootstrap if you want to use any of its default color palettes.

    Yep gameyob does that also let's you play the few gameboy colour games that had extra features on a gameboy advance in advance mode for example legend of Zelda oracle of ages had a extra shop and more rings to collect in advance mode

    Great, I'll give it a try. Thanks guys.
    I assume this thread https://gbatemp.net/threads/358701/ has the latest CIA of GameYob?

    Im not really sure why the section doesn't have a sticky with links to release threads, for a bit of organization, but whatever.

    Nope, here you go. As for the lack of organization, it's too early in 3DS homebrew development to worry about that. It would take too much work to keep it organized when new things are still popping up every day.

    Retroarch's Gambatte core has a bunch of colour palettes built in as well, but it plays the games in black and white by default (it's easy to change). I'm not seeing anything about SGB palettes, though, which is strange, since the I'm pretty sure PC version of Gambatte can use them..

    Thanks.
    Gotta say I'm slightly disappointed by GameYob. It does support colorization, but the palettes are just made up random combinations, they are not the set Super Gameboy had.
    It also doesn't seem to include any borders, not even a default one & I'm too lazy to go find one.

    Well, a lot of 3DS homebrew is still fairly early in development. If you want feature rich emulation on an affordable handheld, I'd go with PSP or Android.

    I don't think its really a question of development time with the issues I had.
    Its not as if a feature is missing.

    And yeah, I have a silver daxter psp, I know.

    Besides that, I don't really agree with you that its fairly early, a year ago was early, and I don't agree with you that a sticky with a list of homebrew threads would be hard to maintain.
    Less than one new program is released a week, so to maintain it we're talking about adding a new link to a thread once a week.
    Its not like the thread has to be updated every time an update happens to the individual programs already created, since its only linking to the threads, not downloads.

    Anyways I'll give Retroarch's Gambatte a try as suggested by daxtsu.

    Thread over, thanks for your time.
