Virtual Game Boy 5.5


OS Platform
Windows 32-Bit
Ein Gameboy Emulator vom 29.10.2014

Quelle VGB HP:
As of December 29 2014, VGB-Windows is free for everyone to use and share. The new VGB 4.6 fixes window display (Duke Nukem) and wave sound pitch (Pokemon Yellow, Baloon Kid, etc). I have also optimized the wave sound code and removed audio interpolation for more realistic, "metallic" GameBoy sound.

If you like VGB-Windows and want to support its further development, consider downloading VGB-Android for your phone or tablet. The Android version comes with many cool extras, such as built-in Cheatopedia with codes for dozens of popular games, State Exchange for exchanging gameplay states with other users, and more. Give it a try and report any encountered problems in the discussion group.

Being fascinated with GameBoy as a cheap handheld computer, I started writing VGB in 1995, after finding some GameBoy programming information on the Net. When developing VGB, I relied on my prior experience with the fMSX emulator. At that time, emulation was still a novelty, and VGB became thefirst usable videogame emulator available.

Since its creation, VGB has progressed to support all existing types of GameBoy hardware and cartridges, as well as many add-ons, such as GameLink, Pocket Printer, Rumble Pack, Super GameBoy, etc. Since I initially made the VGB source code open to the public, many other people started their own GameBoy emulators based on that code. Starting with version 0.8, VGB source code is no longer public, but I still share it every now and then, if the person asks nicely and I like the project.


Licensing VGB
The Virtual GameBoy is written in portable C language and will work on any sufficiently fast computing platform, be it a computer, a videogame console, a PDA, a cell phone, a DVD or MP3 player, or even a digital camera. If your company considers using GameBoy emulation in its products, you can license the VGB source code from me. I am also available for consulting work in the software emulation, embedded programming, and other fields. See my resume and contact me if interested.
