GnuBoy v1.0a: http://www.casiocalc...amp;load_that=1 (included Adventure Island (U).gb - one of my favorite game)

GrayScale is now enabled! I used GaumerieLib for GrayScale... Wait for next ver of his lib (will be faster and support 4 level of grays :huh: )

Use them at your own risk. I curently use the x3 ver and havent seen any crash (I've tested x4 again but It crash my ClassPad again...)

*Plan in beta: Read file from MCS + Save file from MCS to FLASH

@Admin: Recently I can not upload any file to the file sharing!

Go Vanhoa! :rock:
Maybe one day the ClassPad will be as fast as the real gameboy, nice and smooth! :greengrin:
Grey scale is great because some games didnt turn out right with black and white. Nice one!

Btw, what is your favorte games, all of you who uses GnuBoy?

And what is your favorite page to download game?

I seach google with this keywords: download "GB ROMS" -GBA and found this site which give *.gb roms: http://www.globalroms.com/ on the first page.

EDIT: you must paid to download from that site :nonono:

EDIT2: I've fond this http://www.gameboyro...latform=Gameboy (I remember that I found this page before but I lost the bookmark when my reinstalling my Windows). You must use firefox to download from that page, but that page gives roms for free, wothout any count-down, no forced voting, no popups, no ads... or if you want to use browser other than firefox, try this link: http://www.zend3.inf...v...2FtZWJveQ==

But you have to pay for global roms. I use GameBoyRoms.org too. The easiest for me. Although doesn't have every game... Has most of them though, my favorite game is Super Mario Land or Final Fantasy 1. (Final Fantasy 1 can only work properly on greyscale because if on black and white sometimes there are white bits you cant walk though :lol:)

Maybe a good advance for GnuBoy would be able to convert colour games into greyscale for GnuBoy. And maybe more memory space to use games. Just some ideas.

On GameBoyRoms.org, Super Mario Land archive file has some hacked game (ex: Super Pokemon LAnd/ Super Pikachu Land :D )

You can also play gbc roms, but it will be slow.

Dont think about the 4x ver anymore, my ClassPad is still not normal (Am isnt saved to FLASH when turn off; after reset, the maximum number of addins can be shown is 4...) ... Your CP will be broken.

Yes, a kind of timer, programers should understand what it is.

I've almost finished the new version of GnuBoy (this ver should be great) with GrayScale pen&keys based menu + Save gbroms from mcs + CPU reset/pause/resume...

But sorry everybody, my ClassPad is corrupted 100% so I cant test my addins... This mean there will not be any future version of my addins until I could get my next ClassPad... (My parents seem disagree buying new one :()

Anyway, I will try to write this ver in a very clear way to avoid bugs, but I can not say that it will have no bugs... Hope it can be public soon.

Bye,

I can't let you say that <_<
Gaumerie and Stefan K?nig wrote their libraries independantly, with their own styles. But as it often happens in community developments, it just happen that their purposes are similar ;)
What I meaned here is that there is nothing you can do with this file but that you could not do with GaumerieLib :)

I found these file and want to share them, I havent used it yet, and I may not use it anymore since I may not continue my projects

The only thing that these file have more advantage then GaumerieLib is open-source.

One more thing, public hardwares programming shold be shared, it is not like software programming... Because all public hardwares programming are all based from the public-infos of producter. And after all, no one other than the producer could be the author of hardware source... Pap, do you mean Gaumerie and Stefan K?nig are all "Wow, what a skill in copy-paste programming"? (Sorry Gaumerie and Stefan K?nig)... I have nothing to say if you said I copy these code, but you should care about your saying.

One example, Maple gave credic to all the place where provide them the methols. Your LNA also?

I dont want to start a flame-war (the word which The_AFX_Master used :unsure:) anymore, but please think it carefully before saying something like that!

If you disagree with me, just post one more post in this topic (only 1!) to tell me why. and The_AFX_Master, dont lock any more topic of mine.

LNA is 100% written by me (not 99.99%, exactly 100%). I haven't had copied or modified a single line of code from any other project; in other words, I'm the absolute inverse of you, and I'm happy for that. The only credit I must give concerning LNA is the theoretical books I have used. All these books are listed in LNA's documentation, see the "Bibliography" section.

I didnt say that LNA is not writen by you++ You were misunderstood again.
Give credit means tell users what is gave you the info, it can be every thing: a book, a proof, a people, a single web page, ... etc... Look at Maple help you will see that.

Sorry anyway.

Dude, I can't believe that no one has noticed for days about something very serious...

What does GNU mean to you? Or GPL? I'm surprised that vanhoa is able to talk back to PAP about giving credit (all of us should feel guilty that we just let this slip by!), when your package of gnuboy does not indicate:

gnuboy is a Free Software emulator released under the terms of the GNU General Public License ("GPL").


Follow the license! You must not deny rights to other users. And where the heck is the modified source code in the link from the first post. You must clearly indicate that gnuboy:

* Is not your own creation, but you instead have taken someone else's work and modified it
* Tell others that they have the right also to modify the code themselves provided that it is released under the license
* Provide the source code and indicate the changes that you have made to it
* Provide a copy of the license or at least indicate where the license may be viewed

Read it yourself: http://www.gnu.org/l...ses/gpl-3.0.txt

Failure to do so:

You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third paragraph of section 11).


Do not distribute any more of your gnuboy until you have satisfied the license!!! :nonono:

At least PAP takes the time to site his textbooks, not much people bother doing that now these days. For that I give him some respect.

I dont know that :) the oroginal PV source file dont have the license file so I dont know ^^ (so I can give credit to the PV author and Gaumerie only)

I will include the license file in next ver, thank you for notice, I was wrong on this. But as I remember, I published the original file I took from the PV author...

Btw, these days and before days, I must learn 7am-11am on Monday, Wednesday, Friday morning and before is also 7pm-9pm on every night other than Sunday, i is not like the sumer for me :(

Hello Casio People (I am learning English)

I am a new ClassPad user, I want to know how to put the games into the ClassPad, I did put the GnuBoy, I open it and I receive the next message:
"unknown SRAM size FF"
What is its meaning?
How to put the *.gb files into the ClassPad?
Do I need the ClassPad Manager to put in the *.gb files? (I ask it because I had lost my CPM Install Key, Is it on the box? on the CD box?(I had lost it), I can't find it)

Thanks!!!!

Your English is hard to understand, so maybe I didn't understood well what you were saying. Anyway, it's funny you are trying to teach me things about Maple.

Thanks, kucalc.

About the GPL: The GNU Public License is often misunderstood by many people. The new GPL version 3 is supposed to make things clearer, but even Linus Torvalds disagrees with that new version. Anyway, I don't think that vanhoa respects the GPL (version 2 or 3).

EDIT: I've uploaded it again, there's a bug which is fixed...

New verion come now (this could be the final).

Posted Image


What's new?
*Guild
*Key Setting with auto-save
*Turn off the calc, and then tap onto the menu hard icon will not crash it any more
*You can Open/Transfer from MCS to FLASH from the addin
*4 level of grayscale
*On-screen buttons, now fixed the problem act_500ms which make pressing the vitural keys runs as fast as the hard key. Nothe that tapping on 4 sides of the GameBoy screen (The area which display gameboy screen :D ) also acts as 4 direction buttons...

Download here:
*cpa: http://www.casiocalc...amp;load_that=1 (290.77 KB)

*source code: send me a pm

PS: I've found that we can get free 192kByte in the source code, but I can not find a way to get that block of memory. It is a large byte table byte VarName[ 4096 ][ 8 ][ 8 ] but the program only use 2 bits of each element!

WARNING: I havent ever test this version, so if there is any crash dont get angry with me.

Wicked Cool! :thumbsup: No bugs that I have found.
Edit: Oh Dear I found a bug. When you play a game and exit it saves another game eg. If I play mario.gb and then exit it will save a game called mario001.gb

So what does that file do? Will it only happen once each game?

Hello Casio People (I am learning English)

I am a new ClassPad user, I want to know how to put the games into the ClassPad, I did put the GnuBoy, I open it and I receive the next message:
"unknown SRAM size FFF"
What is its meaning?
How to put the *.gb files into the ClassPad?
Do I need the ClassPad Manager to put in the *.gb files? (I ask it because I had lost my CPM Install Key, Is it on the box? on the CD box?(I had lost it), I can't find it)

Thanks!!!!

I got the same message!!! You should make any help file Vanhoa!!! <_< Also the .dll file in the zip archive is corrupted...

Are you using previous version? If so, you should use the this ver (1.0).
In ver 1.0, to play game boy roms, you should follow these steps:

1. Extract Release.rar in a folder
2. Put a rom in that folder, and rename it to file.file
3. Run 2MCS.exe and turn off after it is created
4. Transfer varible main\Memos from save.mcs in that folder to ClassPad, and save it as main\Memos for example.
5. Run GnuBoy addin, select chose gameboy roms and then click the MCS button, select the file, main\Memos for example, and then click Open, input the save file name (in flash) and click Save.
6. Select that game from the list and then press <span class=EXE' /> or click on Open,

That's all.

Nice. Thanks to your awesome program, I found an "easter egg" in the ClassPad system. A quite nice "DRIVER INITIALIZE ERROR" dialog with a sweet out of order ClassPad drawn on it. Should have taken a photo...


:roflol:

EDIT : Wohoo, run it again, I get a BLANK FATAL ERROR SCREEN ! :D Without any information on addresses, just the FATAL ERROR dialog. Your program is pure genius ! I'm going to run it again, to see what happens.

EDIT2 : Duh, I lost all my addins.

EDIT3 : Here we go, I managed to get it again. Good job, vanhoa. :D

1. I found it a long time ago.
2. This ver has never tested by me

I'm currently online, please login to msn, Kilburn. I forgot to warn people: you should tell me how you got any strange error and dont try to get it again... dont let your classpad be like my classpad!

Vanhoa!

I think you should remove your program if it is causing these errors. The ClassPad is probably damaged when they run into errors like "DRIVER INITIALIZE ERROR".

Tell us how you got that message kilburn so we know what not to do and possibly how to fix it. I have never managed to get that error and have used gnuboy since it first came out. Maybe you used a *.gb file over 128kb? I dunno but I would sure like to know how you got that error. And why did you do it more than once???

Maybe because Kilburn wanted to take a photo of the problem of it to better inform and warn us about the problem? <_<

DRIVER INITIALIZE ERROR will occurs after any fatal error because the cpu freq doesnt set to its initialize value. I know about this a long time ago and try to contact Casio a long time ago so I should know much about this than you! You can test if I right or wrong by make an addin with an error code like a=1/0 and run it under double or triple speed!

So, as I know so far, there is some way to get fatal error: Load games larger than 128k, fake file save, and file name error (a FLASH file name can not take more than 2 '.').

Kilburn, Post a error without explain what you did give you nothing... And I should not be interested with the posts like yours any more (these day I'm playing an online game called Boom, and some days after I will be back to school) but I dont want your CP be destroy, I just want to help the users of GnuBoy, if you dont need my help, then dont post. To post a bug, give me the way you reach it, let's keep my topic clean, please.
