    There was a news posting for a new version of Lameboy, version 0.12, but it's gone, along with the download.

    What happened?

    T'was a fake, is all.

    That's all I have to say on the matter. After it was reported a fake on DS-Scene, JPH promptly removed it.

    If it was fake, then would it not work on the DS?

    Funny, I'm using the "fake" release and noticed the improvements right away (some roms that didn't work, now do, all games run smooth as butter). What gives?

    So anyway its not a fake but a modified version which works better than the previouse 0.11 so why wouldn't people want to use this?

    Here is the :Link

    Remove if you must GBATemp but its doing no harm

    What gives is that you're apparently nuts; that or enjoying the placebo effect. 0.12 is byte-for-byte the exact same file as 0.11. Same CRC. Zero diffs in a hex compare. With the exception of the clever rename, they are the same file.

    You really didn;t even try them, did you? Super Mario land 2 boss battles now work (verified by me) while they didn't in 0.11, also the framerate has improved and you can scale it to fullscreen now.
    Next time, do your research before shouting.

    Next time, check your release dates before saying someone is an idiot. It only makes you look like a fool.

    Every post in this thread is from 2008. v0.12 was released June 2009. How could they possibly be talking about a program that wasn't released until 8 months in the future?

    Same to you kobykaan. This thread was from back when v0.12 WAS a fake.

    meh .. I really need to read dates more often instead of racing ahead to post answers lol!
    maby this thread should be closed to avoid further posts!

    I can't even imagine a way in which my post could have been less shout-y. There's no exclamation points, there's no caps lock, nothing. Maybe if I posted in all smalls or something? Nice job making a fool of yourself, anyway; stick around, we could use a laugh.

    It isn't fake.
    It is posted on the offical site.
