A Game Boy emulator written in Ruby.
At the moment Mimey is in a very early stage and it was abandoned for 3 years. It emulates only a half of the CPU opcodes.
gem install bundler
Run the tests:
bundle exec rspec
What does Mimey mean?
What games does it run?
None at the moment.
When will I be able to run games?
This is a side project, so I don't know.
Your emulator sucks! Where can I find a decent one?
Mimey is a work in progress. In the meantime let me help you find one.
Why do you want to build yet another Game Boy emulator?
One of my dreams since I first used an emulator was to create one by myself, I enjoy programming and I think this will be a great learning experience. My goal is being able to run Pokémon Red and Blue.
- Nintendo for creating the Game Boy.
- Satoshi Tariji for creating Pokémon.
- Episode 64 of the Pokémon TV Series for making me like Mr. Mime. Before that episode I really hated Mr. Mime (who can hate that Pokémon? I can't remember why I hated it).
- The great tutorial of Imran Nazar finally gave me the motivation to start writing this emulator.
