    I'm so glad that I will be able to finally save games with Goomba Color. I can't wait to try the new build. :)

    Once again, thank you.

    both 12-03-14 and 12-14-14 builds work fine on my ez flash IV. For save-patching it, i used ez4-64.exe, after that fixed the header with GBATA and copy it to the sd card. drag and drop not with ez client.

    EDIT: Little bug report: If i load a savestate from a different game than it is created, super gameboy borders don't show up.

    That's actually by design, not every game wants to load the border immediately upon boot, so I don't let it boot up in Border Loading mode when loading state. Blame Conker's Pocket Tales for this.
    There's also no point in wasting space by saving the border into the savestate.

    thanks for the explanation. It isn't hard to start the game and load savestate after that and it is well worth for saving the precious SRAM space if border has to be contained in the savestate.

    I am perfectly happy with this right now. All i would need is a way to load my custom palettes and custom borders, but not a big priority. savestates on goomba color was something i was looking forward to for years and now it came true. Thanks a lot.

    Bug report: Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone has problems in text boxes and slowdowns. Do a new game and go to the Wand shop to see it clearly.

    So nobody has found any showstopping bugs or anything here? Should I elevate this to a full release?

    I haven't found any problems, though my GB/C library isn't that large.

    I'm happy to see Goomba Color still being worked on and improved, this is great news. I'd love it if the speech in games would work properly, like in TMNT: Back from the Sewers, Pokemon Yellow, and Pokemon Pinball. Custom SGB borders would be cool too. :3

    Such an awesome emulator!! Keep up the incredible work. Personally I most appreciate the recent Beavis and Butthead graphical fix :yay:

    Persistent problem titles with the Dec-15-2014 build (all GBC-only games, many high-color-mode ones):

    Perfect Dark (playable with moderate graphical glitches)
    Mortal Kombat 4 (bad menu, unplayable)
    Army Men (bad menu, unplayable)
    Pokémon Crystal (playable with moderate graphical issues)
    Commander Keen (Keen's sprite color is wrong)
    Conker's Pocket Tales (very minor cloud sprite glitch in title intro, otherwise good)
    Crystalis (bad menu)
    GTA 2 (slight background texture flicker when walking around)
    Lufia: legend returns (moderate background texture glitches)
    Resident Evil Gaiden (glitch in dialogue screens)
    Tomb Raider (bad menu, unplayable)
    Tomb Raider: curse of the sword (bad menu, unplayable)
    Yoda Stories (one bad sprite frame when walking)

    What can I say? just great you are working again on the GBA.Was sick and in the bed its the perfect Handeld to play with:)
    Is there a compatibility list ? Are you interested to know if games are working or not and the bugs?Shantae is nicely playable:)What a great game.

    And last-not related to goomba did you gave up with pocketNes?
    Because I was sick I played again with my gba and spend a lot of time making compilation on the last build on Pocketnesheaven.Current version of PocketNES (2013-07-01),
    And I have questions.Better to ask here or should I open a new thread?

    How is this compiled? Or do you write your emulators in ASM? If so, is there source code available? Iv recently learned some MIPS and have some experience with TI's ASM for their micro controllers, I would be very interested to know how this emulator works.

    Whoa! It's been a long time since the 2008 build. Would like to try it on my SP.

    Update: Shantae runs pretty good. Slight lags do exist, but they don't bother me.
    Also tried Tokimeki Memorial (a Japanese dating-sim), voice samples are laggy and sometimes the dialogue box will disappear. Wonder if the playback of voice samples requires too much processing power.

    I decided to mess with Goomba Color more, since I tend to have my micro around more often than my 3DS. I've been out of the loop, being spoiled by lameboy and GameYob. Do splashes work with the newer revisions, and if so, how would I go about making one or finding one? I figured it would be fun to setup a GBC BIOS splash.

    Also, is there any way to have Goomba Color save the settings for the emulator, or change the default settings when compiling?

    EDIT: I did some searching and figured out the splash. Here's what I threw together:

    I thought it was a cute idea.

    I can't seem to figure how to select borders on your latest release of goomba. Did you possibly take out borders completely?

    Any plans to port Goomba Color to 3DS? We need MOAR emulators. Lol. Either way, nice work! I haven't had a reason to dust off my old GBA in a long time. :)

    It's awesome to see you're still working on Goomba!!
    I don't have my EZ4 handy, but I read that it runs wonderfully!
    My only dream would be to have a perfectly functional LSDJ on my Micro :cry:

    For anyone wanting to try it out, injecting Goomba Color onto the 3DS GBA VC works. It's a good way to play GB games with SGB borders and palettes.
