Overview[edit]

The accuracy of the emulator is among the highest and is based off numerous reverse engineering tests and document studies. It is currently available as both a core for RetroArch, as well as an individual emulator. It was used in the Super Game Boy component of higan. Upstream development has stopped and while it has great accuracy, it doesn't support many additional features like Super Game Boy emulation.

gambatte-speedrun[edit]

gambatte-speedrun is a fork with accuracy improvements mostly related to Pokémon speedrunning. The same developers made another fork called gambatte-core to continue the work of upstream after sinamas removed the source code from their GitHub.
