Goomba Color 2019-05-04

This build is pretty much the same version as the 12-14-2014 version, except a bug that broke 32K save files was fixed.

Re: Goomba Color 2019-05-04

This is indeed a wonderful job and I thank you grealy for continuing to work on this!

I'm playing GB and GBC games through a EZ-IV and I would like to ask you one thing: is it possible to permanently change palette for GB games and stuff in "Other settings"? I appreciate the backgrounds and the enormous amount of palettes, but sometimes I'd prefer to play them as if they were played on an original system, in greyscale or yellow for example (or even GBC games like Link's Awakening DX without the background border).

Again, though, thank you very much for this release (and previous work), my question doesn't change my happiness in any way (just some kinks of mine)!

Does this work on the Revo K101 Plus?

Don't have one, but it should probably work.  No guarantees.

It works. Just Pokemon Crystal is all glitched and broken.

Sorry if I quote myself but I just wanted to know if there's an easy way to get this (maybe some option in goombafront that I'm too stupid to see) or if the default values of the menus are hard-coded in the emulator (in which case I might go and try to change them myself).

Re: Goomba Color 2019-05-04

It's doing what an actual Game Boy Color does, and looking up the game by checksum, and if it can't find a suitable game, it goes with the "Wario Blast" palette.

Re: Goomba Color 2019-05-04

But if I choose a different palette or if I change a setting such as "Gameboy - Prefer SGB over GBC/...", "Auto SGB border - ON/OFF" or "Identify as GBA - ON/OFF" the emulator does not save that preference and when I exit it turns back to the default values.

I get it that it behaves like if it was on an actual Game Boy Color, seeing all those settings just made me think to have a more versatile system (that for example could make the game think to have being played on a GB, GBC or GBA or just could let me to remove borders, which sometimes I find distracting). Anyway, if it's expected to behave this way I'll simply use, for those games, the original Goomba or I'll dive into the code for a bit. I just hope this doubts of mine doesn't make you think I'm picky and unthankful of your work, because it's great and resolved me a lot of problems (one above all, SAVING WORKS!).

Re: Goomba Color 2019-05-04

I do have an issue with sound on Goomba Color.
On the homebrew game 'Carazu', some of thw audio channels for the menu theme are missing. This goes with Sonic Adventure 7 & 8. Is there a chance that this can be fixed at some point?

Re: Goomba Color 2019-05-04

Writes to the sound registers are just passed on to the GBA's corresponding sound registers, so sound isn't really emulated, it's just passed through.

Are you also aware that The Simpsons: Night of The Living Treehouse of Horror does not work on this emulator?

Mini Bug, the version number haven't got update, it still said 12-14-14.

I would be good to fix, so it doesn't cause confusion.

Re: Goomba Color 2019-05-04

Other than compatibility issues, does this version fix the saving issues, where previously it would suddenly disappear when I try to load my save state?
