PocketGB FAQ:

Q: Can i use the PocketGB injector with command-line like PocketSMS injector?
A: No, the PocketGB injector is totally different and needs you to fill the configurations

Q: Can i load games like Zelda in MultiBoot?
A: No, see the top of this document to see the MultiBoot GB-ROM space limit

Q: Can i play Game Boy Color and see the colors on the PocketGB?
A: No, the PocketGB is only Game Boy, but work with some GBC games that is Game Boy Compatible

Q: Can i edit any color on PocketGB while i'm playing on GBA?
A: Yes, you can edit the palette in the menu, but remember that you can only edit 1 palette called "Custom"

Q: And the others? Like "Def 1", "Def 2" and "Def 3" are for?
A: They are palettes that you can define in the injector, but only on the injector

Q: Cool, but i can replace "GB LCD Color" and "Black & White Shade" too?
A: No, they are fixed palette colors

Q: Can i import *.PAL files into the injector?
A: No, only the palettes generated by no$gmb emulator for PC

Q: That means i can't export the cool palette i made?
A: Yes, you can import/export if you right-click on the 4x4 colors bar

Q: The exported palette will work again on no$gmb?
A: Yes, but it will loose a little (not visible) intensity quality

Q: What is that "Easy MB2GBA" for?
A: Is a special ROM i made in pure ASM that allow MultiBoot and GBA-ROM to be merged, so both
media will work in the same ROM file

Q: Cool, can i find that "Easy MB2GBA" tool alone and use it?
A: Yes, it's on "\bonus\" directory and you can use it for free

Q: Oh no! Bad opcode and some weird letters are on the screen, how can i solve the problem?
A: It means that the game executed an undefined opcode, and the weird letters are the status of the CPU
before the freeze, you can press the L button to reset...But is normally an incompatible game

Q: The game i load is making the screen shaking and i can't play, how can i solve this?
A: Maybe you used the Text/Tile mode or Hack mode, use the Bitmap mode to fix it but runs very slow

Q: The game crash, but "Bad Opcode" is not displayed and also the PocketGB Menu still working, what happened?
A: The compatibility is very low, maybe your game/demo crashed or is in infinite loop, and again,
normally is an incompatible game

Q: Can i play with my friend using the Link Cable?
A: No, the PocketGB don't support Link Cable because it will slow down the emulation and also may happed
unsync over the Link Protocol since the emulator is not running at fixed 100%

Q: What is the best display mode?
A: I can't tell, some work with some games, others don't, some give better sync VS fast speed
There is a little section of this document called "Games problems/notes" that can help you with some games
