Description:

PSP-gnuboy Release 1!
=====================

PSP-gnuboy is a port of the gameboy emulator gnuboy to
the psp.

Features:
 - Support for Gameboy mono and Gameboy Color roms
 - zip support
 - Battery backup ram support - save your position in
   games that support it e.g. Zelda, pokemon, etc
 - Correct ratio'd graphics, hardware accelerated renderer
 - 60fps on most games
 - built in game select screen

Missing
 - Sound
 - More complete GUI
 - Save states
 - Cheat codes
 - mappable controls
 - Link up support


Installation:
=============
For 1.0 firmware:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Copy the contents of the 1.0 folder to your psps memory
stick.
This should give you a /PSP/GAME/gnuboy folder on your memory stick.
Copy your gameboy and gameboy color roms to your memory stick.
PSP-gnuboy has a file browser so you can copy the roms anywhere.
Personally I prefer to put them in the /GAME/PSP/gnuboy/roms/ folder.
Your roms can either be in .gb/.gbc/.rom/.zip format.
.zip is recommended as it takes less space.


For 1.5 firmware:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Copy the contents of the 1.5 folder to your psps memory stick.
This should give you a /PSP/GAME/gnuboy folder and a /PSP/GAME/gnuboy% folder
on your memory stick.
Copy your gameboy and gameboy color roms to your memory stick.
PSP-gnuboy has a file browser so you can copy the roms anywhere.
Personally I prefer to put them in the /GAME/PSP/gnuboy/roms/ folder.
Your roms can either be in .gb/.gbc/.rom/.zip format. .zip is
recommended as it takes less space.


For other firmware:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Currently I have been unable to test on any other firmwares
but if you have a psp that is supported by eboot loader
then please test this emulator with it and email me any problems etc
to: codeport@blueyonder.co.uk


Controls:
=========

Filebrowser:
-=-=-=-=-=-=
Currently the file broweser is quite basic. Use the d-pad to move up and down, and the X button to select a file or folder.
Selecting ".." will make the filebrowser go back to the parent folder.

In-game:
-=-=-=-=

D-pad: Gameboys d-pad
X button: gameboys 'A' button
O button: Gameboys 'B' button
slect: Gameboys select button
start: Gameboys start button
Left Shoulder button: In-game gui.
Currently exit rom option only but this will change in the next version of PSP-gnuboy.

Contact me:
===========
Email: codeport@blueyonder.co.uk

I am looking for webspace for my psp releases,
as well as a graphic artist to help with gui design.
If you can help, please email me!

PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR ROMS AS I CANNOT HELP YOU!


Thanks

   -HamsterBert.
