Force GBC/SGB mode in GB games?
#14

That said I have been working on integrating those palettes into mGBA so you don't need the bootrom.

  1. Can you apply a Super Gameboy border (at least as an option) to all games including those without SGB support, showing the simple SGB general border as you can see it here?
  2. For games supporting both, GBC and SGB (like Dragon Quest Monsters), would it be possible to show it's specific SGB border?

  3. To be honest I don't know whether games that support both have the same color palette on both (GBC and SGB) or which is superior, but if the GBC is superior could you enable it while having the SGB border around it at the same time?
  4. Last but most important question, not only to me but ShadowOne333 as well: Can this be done to the Libretro core of mGBA using RetroArch as well?
    If so, how and when? Smile
Thanks for all your great work man!


  1. That's not a planned feature, sorry. Although I may do overlays at some point, as I want to have scriptable overlays be a thing.
  2. I'm not sure what you're asking here vs #3?
  3. GBC is generally superior, but doing both isn't possible without doing terrible hacks, and I'm not inclined to do those terrible hacks, sorry.
  4. This might already be possible. I'd need to check. It might just be broken though.

  1. You're right at 2. -> 2. and 3. was almost the same question, sorry about that. However: If you do overlays, all problems would be solved. We could search the internet for SGB borders for every rom while mGBA plays them in color (either by a simple color sheme for GB games or their real colors for GBC games). Overlays should be named as the roms then I guess. So if I have a Dragon Quest Monsters.png where the middle is alpha (so the game screen can be displayed there) and I have a rom called Dragon Quest Monsters.gbc it should be loaded automatically. You would only have to think about the scaling.
  2. see 1.
  3. see 1.
  4. Whatever you do, I'd appreciate it very much if the Libretro core gets that as well as I'm a huge RetroArch fan and user. Smile
