How do you create a GameBoy game?

I was kinda wondering, how do you create a GameBoy game?

You understand how the processor for the system you're working on works and use that knowledge to build your game from scratch.

@Miksy91
I just mean, well, are there any tools to create the memory? -- Wait, is there a way that you can sorta build it LIKE Game Maker?

Re: How do you create a GameBoy game?

If you have no knowledge of programming, and only want to use a tool to make a game from scratch, you would do well to not worry about making a ROM and simply make a game using Game Maker, RPGMaker, etc. There are no tools like those that allow you to create a game and then compile it as a Gameboy ROM. There is a Gameboy development kit, but it is nothing like RPGMaker or Gamemaker. If I remember, it is basically just a tile editor and a C compiler, with maybe a few other things but I don't really remember.

Re: How do you create a GameBoy game?

Use a z80 compiler. If you don't know how to do that, you should start from a template, like the pokemon games. Follow the pokecrystal build instructions, then rip out all of the pokemon things.

Re: How do you create a GameBoy game?

If you want to create a Game Boy game from scratch (and not by, e.g., modifying another game), here is a decent walkthrough. It’s entirely in Spanish though.

But I thought Spanish was evil.


You can try to hide yourself in this world of pretend; when the paper's crumpled up, it can't be perfect again.

Re: How do you create a GameBoy game?

I see. Then I might just stick with RPG Maker VX, or RPG Maker XP. Boy, I do wonder how that guy managed to make Pokemon Gold for the NES?

There's nothing wrong with the Spanish language, get over your prejudice. Just because rules aren't as strictly emphasized in this forum as they are in other forums doesn't mean you can get away with being an idiot.

Delete your message or edit it out if you are truly sorry. Really, why post it anyway?

Hey! You watch what YOU'RE saying. I am NOT a idiot. I hack the Pokemon games to glitchy death, REALLY good. Although, I'm not perfect. So can we forget that? :]

Oh yeah, you're REALLY good at f***ing up a beautiful game by zeroing random bytes. That takes a lot of experience.

Hey Chowdit, I'm pretty sure your native language is English, right? And you are completely aware of what you're saying?
