Goomba Color and Pogoshell

Hello, i'm trying to use goombacolor_3_31_2008 with pogoshell-2.0b3-mod5-beta5.7.
I've copied "goomba_mb.gba" into "\root\.shell\plugins" directory and have renamed as "goombac.mb".
Then i've added "gbc 2 goombac.mb 1" in the filetypes section of pogo.cfg.

Building the pogoshell rom and testing with VBA, it seem roms aren't loaded by the emulator,
anyway i can open the menu with L+R and exit back to pogoshell.

Any suggestion?

It is no longer a multiboot program, so don't rename it to .mb.

Using "goomba.gba" as a plugin the program does not start at all, Pogoshell simply reboot.
The latest Pogoshell-compatible version i've tested is 1-13-08.
Could you restore the multiboot functionality?

Re: Goomba Color and Pogoshell

Are you even using a compatible flash cartridge?  Pogoshell is really only intended for the F2A or XROM, and maybe a couple other cartridges.  If your cartridge is incompatible, it can't run non-multiboot programs, and can't use its save system which creates individual save files for everything.  It just becomes a glorified Multiboot Menu type program.  There is also a specially compiled version of VBA that comes with pogoshell, which simulates a compatible cartridge.

The reason I switched from multiboot to nonmultiboot was basically because games crashed while saving because I ran out of RAM.

I just built a new multiboot version with Pogoshell functionality restored, but it looks like it's broken right now.  I'll go fix it...
