    I take a peek here in the boards, and what do I find?
    Someone has gone and made semi-working GBA emu (thats faster than GBA, for demos)

    All I can say is W00T!!

    And they said it couldnt be done, HAHA!

    Does this mean it could theoretically play GB and GBC games perfectly (when complete, of course) ??? Sounds cool to me ;)

    Another question: I saw in the big a$$ GBA thread that you could shrink GBA roms by taking of the fluff at the end with a hex editor. Could a similar technique be used to take the sound out aswell? I dont mind not having sound, so this is jsut a thought :rolleyes:.

    This is all just too cool, I know what im working toward this summer! (Yes, I still dont have a GP32, hence my absense from the boards) Im gonna be a lifegaurd, and make $15 an hour to sit on a chair and make sure ppl dont drown, w00t !! Too bad its really hard to get certified...

    BTW: not that u care, but $15/h isnt that much, but its pretty good for a first job :-D

    true
    lol...some said that..but now its on the way
    fGB32 is already doing the job quite good...:)
    but I dont think GPadvance will emulate GB/GBC... :unsure:
    I dont think so : removing all the 000 at the end of the roms is OK but to remove the sound you would have to decompress the roms in something like a folder then remove all the SND data then remake a rom...not possible I think
    LOL.....:)
    15 is already very good. B) ..some are working all the year long for less...

    Why would the GBA emulator have any relation to a GB/GBC emulator?

    I think its because there is a Z80 (the GB/GBC CPU) inside a gba...

    see you :lol:

    Why would the GBA emulator not play GB and GBC games?
    The emulator is a true emulator - not a mere programme but it makes the GP32 thinks its a GBA doesn't it? So why not GB and GBC?

    Oh and $15 is pretty darn good, I only get £4.50 and I have to work...

    A real GBA can only play real GB/GBC games. The GB emulator that will play roms on the GBA is very slow and there is no GBC emulator at all. If it was that easy I am sure the GBA would have a GBC emulator at least.

    they could emulate the gb on the gba the same way like we now try to emulate the gba on the gp32.. only with the difference that the gba has the whole hardware for gb...

    The reason that Nintendo took a patent out on GBA emulation is because of the zodiac emulator, the one they were charging money for... :blink:

    [edit - the primary reason, that is]

    But the GBA plays GB/GBC games, so a GBA emulator should also play them as well, PC ones and that zodiac one do so why not ours?
