  ROM hacking tools in mGBA
Posted by: endrift - 04-18-2015, 07:44 PM - Forum: General - Replies (3)

I've gotten a request for a bunch of tools to be added for ROM hacking purposes, including:

  • A palette exporter
  • text translation table support (.tbl?)
  • A way to trace RAM data back to ROM
Are there any other tools that people would want?

As for these tools, what file formats would be useful? For palettes, I could easily do .aco or .act exporting, two Photoshop formats. Are there other formats that would be useful? And what of .tbl files? I don't have any information on this file format, which would make it a bit challenging to implement. I found http://datacrystal.romhacking.net/wiki/Text_Table, but it's a bit incomplete.

  mGBA FAQs — Please read first
Posted by: endrift - 04-17-2015, 12:02 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

Here's a smattering of common questions that have been answered already. More will be added as time goes on.

Q: How do I use multiplayer?
A: Multiplayer currently only works on the same computer. To start it, go to File > New Multiplayer Window. Then start the games in each window. Please note that this means that you need game controllers to control the individual players, one per player.

Q: The README says that vibrate, tilt and gyroscope are all supported, but I can't seem to figure out how they work.
A: Unfortunately as of 0.2.0, while they are indeed emulated and supported, they are not exposed to the Qt port. Vibrate is exposed as of the 2015-04-17 nightly. Accelerometer and Gyroscope are exposed and configurable as of the 2015-04-22 nightly. The tilt sensor uses two axes, one for X and one for Y, which are recommended to be on the same joystick. Gyroscopes use two as well, but for the gyroscope, games are controlled by rotating a joystick instead of angling it.

Q: Is Drill Dozer's variable speed vibrate emulated?
A: It is fully supported as of the 2015-05-22 nightly, and it may work (depending on the controller) in earlier nightlies.

  HyperSpin / RocketLauncher support
Posted by: suspendedhatch - 04-15-2015, 09:41 PM - Forum: General - Replies (4)

Just wanted to let you know that I requested that RockerLauncher (HyperLaunch) add support for your emulator and they did already. So now people will easily be able to add it to their HyperSpin (and other) frontend setups.

I see you've added joystick support, a RetroArch core and a whole bunch of other good stuff. Very cool. Thanks for making a GBA emulator focused on accuracy. That is very much gaining in appreciation these days. In the future I hope to see you add support for regular GB, GBC, SuperGame Boy etc.

Nice work!

Information Introductions thread
Posted by: endrift - 04-13-2015, 03:36 AM - Forum: Chatter - Replies (11)

Hello and welcome to the mGBA forums! Are you new here and feel like introducing yourself? Looking for a bit of guidance getting started? Here's the thread for you.

Let me start. I'm endrift, the author of mGBA, and have been working on it for two years. Before that, I worked on a JavaScript version of the emulator for several more months. I also wrote a game in a month during that time, called Scrum: A Game (Very) Vaguely About Programming. In my spare time, I mostly program or do design work. My twitter is @endrift. How about you?

Exclamation Rules
Posted by: endrift - 04-11-2015, 06:02 AM - Forum: News - No Replies

The rules on these forums are intended to be simple and clear.

  1. Be civil. Not everyone has to get along, but if you intend to fight, don't do it here. Moreover, excessive outwards anger, swearing or hate speech may be considered uncivil as well.
  2. No piracy. Do not post links to or upload illegal content, and do not request illegal content.
Repercussions for breaking these rules are not yet established, so at the moment they will be decided on a case-by-case basis. As these forums are quite young, more rules may be added as considered necessary.
