Daid directed " gb4gb "Game Boy Emulator / Game Boy Color / Super Game Boy for Nintendo Wii.



I know the name is very silly, and I should name it something like "gb4wii" or something.

But it's my gameboy emulator. Which has as main highlights:
-Supports Gameboy, Gameboy color and SuperGameboy games.
-Runs up to 4 gameboys side by side!
-Gameboy 1 and 2 are linked with a link cable, so are gameboy 3 and 4.
-This linking works for pokemon trading!

The UI is a bit tricky right now, the Wiimote that clicks on the "load ROM" button is the one associated with that ROM. So if you want to play pokemon red, and pokemon blue at the same time, linked. Then do the following:
-Have wiimote 1 click "load ROM" and select pokemon red.
-Have wiimote 2 click "load ROM" and select pokemon blue.
-Click on "run emulation" with any of the wiimotes.

Just a huge list of 'problems':
-Zelda: Link's awakening seems to be dog slow.
-Speed for other games is to high.
-Supergameboy support isn't perfect, but works ok for pokemon.
-Kirby's dreamland 2 doesn't do anything.
-Sound sometimes has a high pitch in it which should be there.
-Graphics in zelda intro and ninja gaiden shadow (AKA Shadow Warrior, AKA Ninja Ryuukenden) are messed up at a few places.
-No scaling options.
-No button config options.
-No other controller support then wiimote.
-Saves to the same location as the ROM is loaded from.

It isn't finished yet, but posting it here to catch the early bugs and get a few tips about what I should add.
