Nintendo Gameboy Color emulator
This is a backend library that provides the core emulator runtime, it is designed to be used in conjuction with a frontend.
- gomeboycolor-glfw - Uses
libglfwto provide you a native, windowed version of the emulator.
- gomeboycolor-wasm - WebAssembly frontend to support playing in the browser

This module will emulate the hardware of the Gameboy Color.
You can write a 'frontend' to receive the screen data and render it to a medium of your choosing, along with handling keyboard inputs, and something to handle saving battery saves.
See the _examples directory for a simple example of how to write a frontend. Alternatively, look at the 'Available frontends' above.
⚠️Mostly works. It is not a perfect emulator by any means and some games might not function correctly. ✅blargg CPU tests pass ✅blargg memory timing tests pass
✅Supports battery saves for ROMS that allow you to save state ❌Audio is NOT implemented right now ⚠️Does not support RTC clock on MBC3 (although games can still be played)
How do I build it?
This is a 'library' module, no build required.
