gbc4nspire: Game Boy Color Emulator for the TI-Nspire
Posted by Travis on 14 March 2010, 06:32 GMT

Following up on the success of POTY winner TI-Boy SE without missing a beat, Brendan Fletcher has started off the brand-new TI-Nspire ASM program library with the Nspire counterpart, gbc4nspire. Development had begun even before the public announcement of Ndless, allowing gbc4nspire to be available almost immediately after Ndless's public release. Written directly in ARM assembly, this emulator is designed to run software for both Game Boy and Game Boy Color (using grayscale shades to represent colors).

(P.S.: Happy Pi Day!)

That sure given me much more use for my TI-Nspire. Until it came out I only really used it to program in 84 mode. I have been waiting for thise for a long while. Good job calc84.

Btw i love how we don't even need to convert the GB/GBC ROM files like with TI-Boy SE. All we do is add a .tns extension and the Nspire eats it

Now I actually want a nSpire, now that there's a good (great) program out.

I wish I could install it but I need the math features of the current OS(s) for school so I can't downgrade until either someone makes an asm program to replace the lost functionality, ndless begins to operate on 1.7 or 2.0, or the TI-89 emulator comes out for the hacked nspire OS 1.1

I don't understand the symbols in the update.

I guess they're capital letter pi's or something. Don't ask me though, I'm not the one who added that update. :) *Checks Apache logs and glances over at Duncan*

They are the Greek letter pi in uppercase & lowercase forms (at least, provided you have a suitable font).

Right, I got that. But I was trying to figure out if there was a deeper meaning with the lower/upper case changes. :)

It's a graphic equalizer made out of PI's :).

I'm glad that the first full program for the ti nspire is also one that lets you play plenty of games on it.

I wonder how easy it would be to simulate link cable functionality when two ti nspires are connected via usb and running the emulator. Not that I would expect any programmer to rush into doing that so soon after making a significant development with this calculator. One step at a time!
