Phoinix, the free Gameboy emulator for PalmOSby Bodo Wenzel
About the future
This is a look into the future, "pie in the sky"... Don't expect anything about it in the next version, perhaps it will never come. The screenshots are taken from a mock-up I once wrote, all names are purely fictional. Additionally the user interface changed, please don't let this confuse you...
Each feature has a comment showing its status...
Many requests for features to implement are arriving; to be honest, too many. Here are some notes how I try to decide when things are implemented:
Categories allow you to group games logically into manageable
lists. In the game manager, categories appear in a popup list in the
form's titlebar to limit the view. To edit a single game, a second
popup list is provided.
No user asked for categories. So I'll better save the time (for me) and the bytes (for you).
Of course you like to share your joy with your friends. Beaming will
enable you to transfer games and saved states. You know about the
legal aspects of copying commercial games, don't you?
There are so many nice tools that can beam everything. It's quite improbable that it will be added...
Linking Gameboys is not often supported, most games can't be played with more than one player. But with some games you'll have much more fun if you're playing with partners.
Please mail me if you know something about the infrared link of the real Gameboy. Wouldn't it be great if you could connect to the original?
Since there seems to be no information on this topic, I'm afraid that this feature will not be added.
