The Hottest DCEmu Posters
for the Gameboy Advance and also the Gamecube via the Gameboy Player and now the Nintendo DS (via the GBA Cartridge slot)..
a Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) emulator for the GameBoy Advance.
you already knew that, didn't you?
you can use PocketNES, you need to add some NES roms to the emulator.
do this with various tools (Thingy, NEStoGBA, etc.) found at
Older tools (made for v7a) should
work fine, as long as you don't use any "SRAM
slot" settings, as they aren't
Make sure your flashing
software allocates 64kByte/512kbit SRAM for PocketNES.
navigation: Press L+R to open the menu, A to choose, B (or L+R again)

of the current rom.

wakes up from sleep mode (activated from menu or 5
minutes of inactivity)
Link transfer: Sends PocketNES to another GBA. The
other GBA must be in
multiboot receive mode (no cartridge inserted, powered
on and waiting with
the "GAME BOY" logo displayed). Only one game
can be sent at a time, and
only if it's small enough to send (approx. 190kB
or less). A game can only
be sent to 1 (one) Gameboy at a time, disconnect
all other gameboys during
Multi player link play: Go to the
menu and change Controller: to read
depending on how many Gameboys you will use.
Once this is done on all GBAs,
leave the menu on all slaves first, then
the master, the game will restart
and you can begin playing.
If the link is lost (cable is pulled out, or a
GBA is restarted),
link must be re-initiated, this is done by a restart on
the master and
then selecting the appropriate link and leave the menu. The
have to do anything.
Use an original Nintendo cable!
If you wish to use PocketNES with Pogoshell
just rename pocketnes.gba to nes.bin
To be able to check for the GameBoy Player one must display the GameBoy
logo, the easiest way to get it is by downloading it from my homepage.
you can rip it from any other game that displays it (SMA4 & Pokemon Pinball).
is no actuall use for it yet, but the check is there and I would appreciate
people could test it on their GameBoy Players, it says in the menu
v9.94 on GBP".
because PocketNES supports a mapper doesn't mean all games using that
