I need to ask a question

question 1: is the Neo SNES compatible with the Retro Duo?

question 2: will the Neo SNES allow you to play game boy color games?

2: No. You need a Super Gameboy to play Gameboy games on your SNES. The SNES Myth doesn't contain any kind of Gameboy functionality.

As far as Gameboy Color games go; the Super Gameboy behaves like a regular Gameboy, so a GBC game will work if it's backwards-compatible with the regular Gameboy.

The Super Game Boy is just a Game Boy that attaches to the SNES. It has ALL the Game Boy hardware inside. You can't really expect a flash cart for the SNES to have all the Game Boy hardware. That's unrealistic.

In any case, as to question 1, I don't know if anyone has tried it on the Retro Duo, but I use my SNES Myth on an FC-16 Go and it works fine, so it's probably okay on most clones.
