Overview

Top features include very high accuracy, debugging tools via a command line, and most standard features found in other top emulators. The UI is very crisp and clean looking.

Sameboy is also available as a Libretro Core. (more info)

Issues

All menu options are handled via the on screen gui, with no menu buttons at the top of the window.

Sameboy can change operating mode (GB, GBC, sometimes GBA) on the fly but restarts the currently playing game on event.

The splash screen of all Gameboy games is replaced with the words Sameboy, and animated accordingly.

WideGB

WideGB is a fork of SameBoy with widescreen support. This allows you to peek beyond the screen boundaries of GB games. Downloads are available on this GitHub.
