Ey, good work Nicolas.

As i have never used a real Gameboy Advance, i don´t quite know what to expect. However i tried with Aladdin for Gameboy Colour, and was disturbed of the choppy scrolling (even though the emu was running 102%). Can someone recommend a cool game or games for testing?

Anyway, good work man, when do we see a nice gui then.

Edit:
Gimme some hints for finding the easteregg?

@Nicomen
Nope, didn´t help, but it shouldn´t be necessary as it runs at full rate. Perhaps it´s just bad coded scrolling in that game. ;)

@Samo79
Well it has been in 98% finished state for a while now. It is just a stupid thingy that makes it
all unusable, and that is that when scrolling the game area, it just looks like it looses the screen memory position (Walking 2 screen pages in Addams family, and then it looses the gfx when changing direction, seems like a bankswitching problem). However i transplanted the rendering-code from AmiGenerator to see where the bug was, and indeed then it worked fine, however then the sprite-priority was wrong instead, also emulation was alot slower. So i am still to fix this problem. All endian-issues is fixed.

As i am home and sick this easter, i perhaps will have time to investigate this further.

Cool now I can continue my GameBoy projects on the AmigaOne. One more reason to use my aging A4000 less and less.

Thanks Nicomen!!!

Here is something which will be appreciated by the true Amiga fans. Almost perfect conversion, except for the music. Plays fine under VBA-AmigaOS4.

The emulation works really good! I have tried "A Link To The Past" and it runs perfectly (Note: I own a GBA and the game, so I hope that is ok).
Great work! Thank you!

Alex.
