Game Boy (Color) News
XPMCK (15-02-2010) (GBC misc)

XPMCK is a music (expressed in MML) compiler kit targeted towards various video game systems. It currently supports the following systems:

Capcom Play System (VGM output only)
ColecoVision
Commodore 64
MSX (KSS output only)
Nintendo Gameboy / Gameboy Color
SEGA Master System
SEGA Game Gear
SEGA Genesis

Besides the compiler and its source code, the kit includes playback libraries for all supported systems, as well as examples and brief documentation.

Changes:

* Added a transpose command.
* Added support for per-note macros.
* Fixed a bug in the handling of [] loops in the Gameboy and C64 playback libraries.
* Fixed a bug that would occur when the initial delay in an @MP macro was zero.
* Fixed some bugs in the compiler which would result in some AY-specific commands being ignored when outputting for the Amstrad CPC.
* Step values for intervals are now automatically given the correct sign by the compiler.

20Y (GB Demo)

20 Year Tribute Demo to the Gameboy by Snorpung.

20Y is intended to be run on either the DMG, Pocket or the SGB. It’s not compatible with GBC nor GBA and will produce graphical glitches when run on the latter systems.

This demo relies heavily on the precise quirks of the hardware it’s supposed to run on, and there’s currently no emulator that is 100% accurate. So if you haven’t the means to use real hardware it’s strongly recommend to use BGB (bgb.bircd.org) as it is the only emulator to the authors knowledge that only has a few minor issues with the demo, and they are barely noticeable.
