Gameboy on pocket chip?


#5

Mednafen is another option.

sudo apt-get install mednafen

When I enter “sudo apt-get install visualboyadvanced” I get e: Unable to locate package visualboy advance


Dedicated GBC emulation?

Did you to the “apt-get update” first?

Check out my guide:


#11

It installed but now I cant get it to launch

Sorry for being such a newbie, just got the pocket chip and this is my first real venture into linux terminal stuff


#12

It has a CASE sensitive NAME.

So it has to be launched with:

VisualBoyAdvance

I’m still trying to figure out where the game files go, and where they come from, and if any are included in the install.


#13

Thank you Dwaine, Im at the same point now. I have to figure out where to get the ROM files for the games I want


#14

So, I cheated. On my Windows PC, I went to one of the sites that host ROM images, which have an extension of .gba.

I downloaded a Super Mario ROM file, zipped. Unzipped it, and copied the gba file to a FAT32 formatted USB memory stick.

I went to the PocketC.H.I.P Browse Files window,

I plugged the USB stick into PocketC.H.I.P.

The USB stick appeared in the Places list. Opening it, I saw the gba file.

I made a ROMS folder in the Home folder.

I copied the gba file from the USB stick to the ROMS folder.

The file had an incredibly long name with spaces, so I right clicked it in the ROMS folder and selected Rename, and gave it a short name, maintaining the .gba extension.

Then I went back to Terminal and cd’d into the ROMS folder.

Then I typed: VisualBoyAdvance supermario.gba

And Super Mario popped up. Cool.

Have yet to figure out the keyboard controls, and likely additional screen options would make it look better. But this is a start.

Finally, I’ll admit that I did all this using a VNC terminal into the PocketC.H.I.P. That is SO much easier than trying to do complex stuff with the C.H.I.P keyboard. I installed VNC onto C.H.I.P. using the procedure at the end of this thread:

Happy gaming!
