    Yes, it's been a long time, but the GBA is still a really nice emulation machine, much better than smartphones.
    I've been working on Goomba Color again, mostly to try to get Shantae working at a nice playable speed, and I've pulled it off! Many speedhacks and code optimizations later, Shantae is decently playable on the GBA.
    I've released a (buggy) test build, warning, it may be buggy.

    Great to see you on here Dwedit, and even happier makes me the news that you're still working on Goomba Color!

    Definitely my favourite GB emu of all times :D Too bad I don't have my GBAs with me, otherwise I'd have given this a spin immediately!

    I'm surprised you're still working on this. Just for old times sake, I loaded this up on my Micro. Great job.

    Smartphones are better emulation machines if you have a BT gamepad :P
    That said, I love the GBA and Goomba Color always impressed me with its features and speed. Used that quite a lot when the GBA was my primary handheld gaming machine. Nice to see you're still working on it :)

    I haven't been here for a few months so it was a pleasant surprise to see that Goomba Color lives!

    You've made me and my GB Micro very happy.

    Thanks for sharing and the best of luck with your continuing work. :)

    Released a new build, go to the usual site. Hopefully fixes all the crashes and SRAM save craziness.

    reprep: nope, it's limited to 64 KB. If you need more space, make more goomba compilations for now.
