WLA DX v9.4a (08-04-2008) (GB misc)

WLA DX has stagnated a lot recently but there has been progress since the last time (November 2006). WLA DX is a Macro Assembler Package for GB-Z80/Z80/6502/65C02/6510/65816/HUC6280/SPC-700 and was written by Ville Helin.

Changes:

– data filtering macros (looks useful for non-standard string encoding)
– Mersenne Twister random numbers (not that you’d use them much at compile-time)
– Label and line number bugfixes

Gameboy and Gameboy Color Archive (GBC misc)

kedo managed to reupload 99% of the old PDRoms Archive to the new system we are currently using, this means the Gameboy Archive is fully back!

Content:

Gameboy All Files (340)
Gameboy Games (233)
Gameboy Demos (94)
Gameboy Techdemos (6)
Gameboy Applications (1)
Gameboy Miscellaneous (6)

Most games are are available for download, while some had to be locked, specially the once bearing the name “Tetris” 1:1 in the title. The “Tetris Company” is quite agressive against trademark abuse, so we had to take this step.

Now go and enjoy the GB/GBC Archive with many homebrew pearls, which were released the past years.

In behalf of our visitors, many thanks to kedo for his effort uploading the files and making plenty of screenshots! It was for sure a time taking task.

Pushpin (GBC misc)

Although it was first announced September 2000, Noah Vawter & Brian Whitman are proud to finally present Pushpin, a MIDI synthesizer kit for your Nintendo Game Boy Color. Pushpin converts your Game Boy into a MIDI ready device that you can control from any keyboard, sequencer, or software. It comes as a ROM file you program to any flash cartridge along with simple instructions to build a cable that hooks into the GBC’s Link Port – one end of the cable is a link connector, and the other is a MIDI in.

Pushpin is controllable from every dimension, including 90 MIDI CCs. It’s four channels of multi-timbral retro-video-game perfection. 2 square waves, a noise channel and a programmable wave channel. Each can be tweaked real-time from MIDI Controller messages. It’s a great handheld battery-powered performance tool. Use it with any hardware or software sequencer you choose. Pushpin listens to and interprets MIDI note messages, continuous controllers for every single possible sound parameter of the Game Boy, pitch bend messages, and program changes.

Pushpin requires an actual Game Boy Color. No other Game Boy or Game Boy Pocket or Game Boy Light or Game Boy Advance or SP or DS device or any emulator will work due to the hardware requirements.

Gameboy Sachen 4 in 1 (GB misc)

Well not really PD/Freeware stuff right now, but this morning I thought about writing the responsible person of this company if they are willing to release their old Gameboy stuff, which they probably don’t use in a commercial way anymore, to the public domain pool. The mail has been just sent and did not bounce back :) I will keep you people informed and if the Sachen guys like my idea (I won’t go into deatail here) we have a couple of more freeware games for the Gameboy soon :)

MazezaM v1.0 (GB game)

Another Gameboy game by Ventzislav. It’s a puzzle game called MazezaM and is truly a lot of headache, even if the graphics are not that good.
