Gameboy Full Colour Romhacks
« on: March 08, 2013, 01:21 AM »
I know people have been screaming that they want a gameboy / gameboy color everdrive.  For fun I built myself a gameboy cart that runs eproms / flash chips out of parts I had laying around:





Since I bothered building this dev-cart I decided to look into doing some gameboy dev-work.  What a better way to start than to take some existing romhacks that convert black and white games into full colour and make them run on the real hardware as a real gameboy color game.

Marioland:

And Metroid 2:

Both of these games run on real hardware and all emulators start to finish.  I removed all the major bugs / glitches with the help of spikeman.  A huge thanks to spikeman for fixing a lot of difficult bugs I was having trouble with.

And in case there's any doubters:
