Now that school is finally over and the ACT's are in the past, I can get into the real programming of the Gameboy, which is what this blog is all about.

I found this really awesome program for the computer that is probably the only windows application (not command line crap) for creating gameboy games. It's called Gameboy Assembler Studio, and it can be downloaded right here. Since that site may go down in time, I'll get permission from the site admin to post a zip file of that program on this blog if that ever happens.

Since I have never coded anything in assembly before, I will have to browse around for some good tutorials and post a few links of good tutorials in a few days.

Also, I will be making my own gameboy cartridge reader/writer from scratch, and I'll probably sell it on my main website for $20 to $30 if I can find a low-priced cartridge connector.


  1. Did you end up making the cartridge reader/writer? I'd like to get into GB programming but I'm more of a programmer and less of a hardware hacker so it'd be nice to be able to buy one. Seems nobody sells them anymore.

  2. Yes, I have a few pictures of it as well -- I'll make another post about it now so I can put them up on the blog...

    It's about 2/3 done, since all it does so far is read directly from the rom chip, and needs to be slightly changed to work correctly with the GB cart.

    Check the new post I'll be making shortly for pics and some more info.
