    Well, it really boils down to how well the Dragonball EZ processor can handle it. The problem with many emulators is that the games end up rather slow and sometimes buggy. On the other hand game boy color games should look really neat on the IIIc .

    You're going to buy thr ROMs of course. Right? heheh

    BTW how will you transfer the ROMs onto the Visor? If there a converter?

    Peace

    I guess you can download the ROMS from some obscure Warez-site.... The probably use one of those 'copyboxes'....

    Of course I won't buy them! I'll just download the ROMS of games that I already have (which is the legal way to do it!) or I'll keep them for only 24 hours (another legal way to do it!)

    Also, they updated the website. See my previous post to get the new link. Notice how small the files are for the games!!! Some of the games are big, but Tetris is only 64kb! Being that I only have a regular Visor (and have Tetris on my Gameboy-that I haven't used in years): Sweet!

    This is a great thing to happen, but as a note, please do not post links to ROM sites, as I'll remove the links.

    There have been discussions on PalmStation for almost a year now on this. It has been coming "any day" from at least last November.

    I think they had a beta loaded on a warez site last December, then pulled it.

    Good call James.

    Also, I want to appologize for putting this thread in the wrong forum. I had put it there since in your springboard soundoff, people had been talking about a gameboy springboard.

    Bret, are you sure it was this site? I think this is legit! They changed their site from yesterday to this morning (moved the announcement to their main page). I think they're really going to release it soon!

    Btw, is there a gameboy rumble pack? Any gameboy games that use one? If so, the Innopak would be perfect if this emulator can access it! You could use the Vibrating alarm as the 'rumble'!

    But I'm daydreaming now...

    Isn't Nintendo going to go ballistic over this? Has this be given offical santion, or will Nintendo cry havok and unleash the Lawyers Of War on Gambit Studios?

    This is Legal. As long as you own the games, and a gameboy, you can legally get an emulator and the games. Otherwise, websites like EMux wouldn't still be up and running.


    Now if they charge for the emulator, that's a different story!

    Of course there is the small matter of how you get the games from your GameBoy cartridges into your Visor...

    Nintendo might become more agressive about shutting down Warez sites with ROM images.

    or I'll keep them for only 24 hours (another legal way to do it!)
    How is that legal? Technically you CAN make a backup...but only as a BACKUP. In otherwords, it IS, technically, illegal to backup your gameboy game and then play it on your Visor.

    Will Nintendo sue? Most likely. Do they have a case? Probably doesn't matter...Nintendo clearly had the upper hand financially to battle this. It's the same as with the Sony/Connectix Playstation Emulator lawsuits.

    So...get it while you can!

    At the sites with ROMS that I've seen, they say that you can keep them for 24 hours if you don't have the game, otherwise, you can keep it.

    I'll give you a perfect example of how it's legal to play the ROMS on your visor:

    You buy a CD and make a tape copy of it as a backup, but also so you can use it in your car tape player. Since you own the CD, and no one else is using the CD while you are using the tape, it's the same as using the CD in your car, for all intents and purposes.
    I think this falls under the "acceptable use" clause in some law in the US.

    Now let's go to the ROMS. You own game A, and a GameBoy. You don't want to carry your gameboy with you because of the bulk, so you bring your visor with your ROM installed. Since no one else is using your gameboy, or the game, you are, for all intents and purposes, using the game boy. You payed the same price for it, so Nintendo made their money, and everyone's happy.

    At least this is how I interpret it. Correct me if I'm wrong

    Well said. I don't know if that's the exact legality of it all, but it's a pretty good explanation.

    BTW, not to be a dork or anything, but it's intents and purposes not intensive purposes. Sorry, I'm kinda anal.

    <A HREF="http://"http://www.palmstation.com" TARGET=_blank>Palm Station</A> just released a full review on the Liberty emulator. Looks like there's going to be a free version that plays games that are 32kb and less, and a verson that you pay for to play the rest. Check the website for details.

    ***Update***

    It appears as if the Gambit Studios web site is undergoing remodeling, since I can't get to a main page. However, if you go to http://www.gambitstudios.com/toc.asp you can view the sitemap, which was formally restricted!

    Liberty will cost $16.95 for the full version or bundled with Afterburner 3.0 it will cost $22.95. The site has links to free ROM images, but it looks like you could use any GB ROM with the software or create your own with a GB Exchanger. The download will include a PC program to convert ROM images to PDB files.

    And therein lies the problem...the only people that can "legally" interpret it are the courts...which usually means that those with the $$ tend to win these type of cases.

    Liberty 1.0 is now available for download at PalmGear! Check it out! http://www.palmgear.com/software/sho...53&prodID=7928
