PocketNES X (beta 2) for GBA Movie Player

EDIT: BETA 2 appears to be buggy right now.  Stick with beta 1.


For the GBA Movie Player (CF version) only.
This is basically the same PocketNES that I just released for flash cartridges, but with a few things missing:
* does not yet accelerate games as much
* does not yet fix Magic of Scheherazade

Run the flasher tool to install pocketnes onto your GBAMP's firmware.
Any time you want to use pocketnes, run "run_pocketnes.gba"

Pocketnes also has a multiboot GBA loader, which is more compatible than the builtin one.
Please do not try to run NES files from the GBAMP's graphical menu system.  It doesn't work.

Beta 2 is released now, it's mostly a fix for malformed savestates created by GBAMP X Alpha 1.  Also has changes made to pocketnes between 3-13 and 3-18.  I built it because the previous version wasn't loading my Megaman 5 savegame (which incorrectly contained a VRM1 tag)

Nice to see that you're working again.
I'll be sure to test this.

Awesome.

Woah, it loads multiboots! Seriously DWedit, just write over the whole firmware now. Or, make another version. Sorry to be demanding...

EDIT: Also, it appears that this makes cart_save work! (But only when booted with PocketNES... Weird.)

Re: PocketNES X (beta 2) for GBA Movie Player

If I write over the firmware, I'll lose its amazing ability to play horribly compressed video files!

Re: PocketNES X (beta 2) for GBA Movie Player

Nooooooooo!

EDIT: To make this post meaningful, I also noticed the .GB files also show up. Are you planning on integrating goomba?

EDIT AGAIN: Oh, and I never told you what site I'm from, DWedit. I came from DCemu.

Re: PocketNES X (beta 2) for GBA Movie Player

I'm planning on integrating Goomba Color and SMSAdvance in there, so GB/GBC and GG/SMS files show up as well.  Right now, only NES and multiboot GBA files work.  Even .mbap files show up, for compressed multiboot games, but I haven't written the loader for them yet.

Re: PocketNES X (beta 2) for GBA Movie Player

I don't own the GBAMP CF but I'm planning on getting one. My problem is that I don't really understand how to update the firmware. Do I have to connect the GBAMP with my computer via a special tool or can I just download the "update.e19" file from movieadvance.com and copy it to the CF card together with the two files contained in your zip file?

It's all a bit confusing to me... I'd appreciate it if you wrote a little step by step guide starting with "Get the GBAMP out of the packaging" for all those who just don't get it (including me).

You dump files on the CF card.

Dwedit is a fast guy, didn't they ever tell you that one mythical story about how he once coded so fast that the universe collapsed upon itself?  That is why MAME.net goes down once in awhile I hear.   Or that other mythical story about how he saved loopy that one time, he did so.  I promise you, for loopy.

Dwedit is a fast guy.
