  1. Not sure, but is this Gameboy (classic), GBColor, or GBA? You might not know that the DS won’t do GB/GBC games natively, you need to run them in an emulator like Lameboy (at which point you’re better off using a PC emulator)

  2. ConstyXIV: Good to know on the DS incompatibility. This will be more the classic GB and GBC level of code. All the development will be done in a PC emulator so a gameboy isn’t strictly required.

  3. Hello Wow what a fantastic article about Hack Sign! Your keen insight into Hack Sign is informative and creative. I look forward to reading other articles you have. Thanks.

  4. I’ll do it on Friday.
