Made this for my Cartridge, Mario Land -> the first GB Game I owned :D

Couldn't find a matching FONT for the title, could be nice tho. :)

Edit: Can't wait for it :D



Nice! But wouldn't Tetris technically be the first GB game anyone has owened (or those who bought a DMG-01 when it was first released)?

Link's Awakening also came bundled with some Gameboy.  I'd like either that (Zelda fan here) or Tetris themed label.

That's true, but doesn't the EDN8 say you don't have to reset to save except with FDS?

I always reset anyway, just to be extra safe (and out of habit)
Yes because the N8 has a battery.

You still need to hold the reset button when powering off to not risk loosing the SRAM data though.

I've designed a label for my everdrive whenever I get it:



What do you guys think? Either way, I've got a backlit GBP now which is awesome, but I'm slightly concerned at how the battery life will fare...the backlight takes a toll on the battery life as it is, even without the everdrive on top:

If I was to buy a system for this new everdrive what would you buy?
Seems many nintendo handhelds are backwards compatable.
Would be nice to have it rechargable and backlit.  Thoughts?

GBA SP is really your only choice if you want backlit and rechargable batteries (unless you count modding).

If you want to use linking as well you'll need a GBC (or older model). Some games have GBA only features as well, like the GBA shop in the Oracle series.

Are you sure? Last time I tried, the GBC cable didn't even fit. Or maybe it was the GBA link cable that didn't fit GBC?
