Can't wait. I'll probably order a Game Gear Everdrive too since the RGB output mod is now a thing for the Game Gear. I could never tolerate that awful screen.

Awesome, can't wait for this thing.
Got a backlight modded original GBA waiting, plus a Gameboy Player on my GC.

I've got the GB USB Smart Card 64M, but I'm sure the Everdrive will be infinitely better :)

Is there any way we can be notified as soon as it's available?

Enable email notification on this thread, and you are informed pretty fast I guess :)

With the GB USB Smart Card 64M you wont have enought Memory to put enought GBC Roms, and it doesnt feel like an original Everdrive. It seems to be not good Quality and a very difficult and unnessary write mode. It automatically deletes all saved Rom files only because you add one more to the GB USB Smart Card 64M.

Not user-friendly at all!

Plus it doesn't have a very good compatibility. Most GBC games I tried and a good bunch of GB games doesn't work properly.

Yes! Thank you Igor!

Please if you can try some games like Donkey Kong or Megaman 5 on GBA/SP to check if they make use of the extended SGB palette on that hardware.
I know that SmartCard has Problems with that.

Here are some known trouble-games and patches from Mottzilla:

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

Updated first post of the thread with links to different parts of EGBG developments. Saving the new people from going through the whole thread.

Has this thing been tested against non black GBC games?
I see pictures on the Super Game Boy but that unit does not support GBC fully.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Game_Boy#Gameplay :
"The Super Game Boy is compatible with the original monochrome Game Boy cartridges, black Game Boy Color cartridges and the Game Boy Camera although it would display the latter two in their monochrome compatibility mode."

So will this be compatible with GBC or only to what works on Super Game Boy (black GBC)?

Hmm... good question. I'm guessing he wouldn't market it as GB/GBC if it didn't.
Also if anybody wants a new GBC cartridges I suggest looking for copies of "720" for black cartridges and  "NSYNC: Get to the Show" for clear cartridges. These seem easy to find and are really cheap since nobody wants these games.

People have been mentioning certain games along with Mottzilla's fixes.

The original thread which also gives some technical information about why those games might not work is at http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=5804

Edit: I noticed I already posted this a month ago, ah well.

You should check if Pokonyan works with all the Super Gameboy features intact.
