TI Boy – TI-84 Gameboy Emulator

A Gameboy Emulator has been created for the Texas Instruments graphic calculators. It is compatible with TI-83+SE, TI-84+, and TI-84+SE calculators and has advanced far enough that it does more then the original black and white that the first emulator was capable of. As of now it can render 4 greyscales and gives you the ability to switch over the blacks and whites.

The software was written by Brendan Fletcher and it runs on the Z-80 based calculators due to the CPU’s being similar.

3 zoom modes are available along with 2 channel sound and the ability to save and restore games. Games included in the emulator are Tetris, Zelda (Link’s Awakening) and Kirby. A few homebrew type games have also been thrown in to the package.

The speed of games isn’t the greatest just yet but as Technabob points out, the release version is Alpha 0.0.2 which gives an indication that there is a lot more to come.
