GameBoy Emulator
« on: July 13, 2020, 05:39 AM »
I just released my first version of a GameBoy emulator here
https://lambertjamesd.github.io/gb64/romwrapper/romwrapper.html
You can use it to convert a gameboy or gameboy color rom into an N64 rom to run on everdrive.
There are a few known bugs but none of the known bugs are game breaking

When state-saving, I get a 'failed to save' message across the top of the screen; any fix for this yet, or just an early-stage bug?

Other than that, every game I tried so far runs perfectly. Excellent work on this, thank you

Did you add the ROM to save_db.txt?
The rom maker should have shown you what to add

This emulator is very impressive

-has resolution 480 pixels
-you can change the color palette  in the gameboy classic games and the sprites
-can be accelerated with C-right
-you can scale the video aspect

Estaré al pendiente por si se llegara a actualizar para alguna mejora, tiene mucho potencial

That's strange, Super Mario Bros Deluxe worked fine for me aside from some sound bugs

Do you know what revision of smb deluxe you used? I tried v1.1, and the converted rom would not work on neither my everdrive nor openemu.

This emulator works amazingly well, I never expected the sound to be so good!

My only trouble is with the saves. Using save_db.txt method, I get the 'Failed to save' message, and by manually setting the rom save type to flashrom in the Alt64 menu, it crashes on saving with this error? https://i.ibb.co/41fT8X8/All-focus.jpg

Could maybe someone share how their working save_db.txt file looks, in case I've let a random typo or something slip in that I can't spot?
