GameBoy Development Tools
The articles on the GameBoy Digital sampling oscilloscope (GBDSO) did not fail to convince many of you that the Nintendo game console is a veritable gateway to more serious applications. This month we’ll look at the tricks of the trade, or what goes into creating your GB application.Since its introduction on the toy market, the immensely successful Gameboy computer game console has been used applications ‘totally different’ from than those envisaged by its manufacturer, Nintendo. The original game cartridges containing no more than a ROM (sometimes accompanied by a RAM), illegal copies soon appeared on the black market. The next step was to develop Flash-RAM cartridges which could be loaded over and over again (from a PC) with different games. The Internet abounds with websites where this (illegal) activity is practised.
