    Is there one? I know the games are small anyway, but I got quite a few now and i'm running out of space.

    GBC games can't normally be trimmed. However, Goomba Color does support (or at least used to support) specially-compressed games using a tool that comes (came?) with the download called GBCtrim.exe. These roms would not work on Lameboy however.

    The titles are prety much as compressed as possible. Most are a couple of MB's at most. If you need to save space, simply make room as about 20 titles should fit in 50 MB's.

    @jakob95 there are many 16Mbit titles (2 megabytes) such as most of the pokemon games, more than a few 4 megabyte games and a single 8 megabyte game (Densha De Go! 2)

    No-intro do a good dat http://datomatic.no-intro.org/ and http://www.advanscene.com/ have GB/GBC in their database.
