Do you plan to have Graal coming to Game Boy Advanced? Is the programming language used for Game Boy Advanced different than anything else, or is it similar to a certain or other programming languages? I am thinking of making a GBA game (with great ideas) and just want to know, the only programming language I know is really C++.

Yes, normally you are using C

C++ is modifications of the C language ...

Last I checked, the Gameboy Advance uses C++ (and some extra instructions ;))

It has to emulate the older games to play them I believe since the instructions on the older carts were different. GBA also uses PCM waves for sfx/music and can use Midi for music :) (which means it probably has a wavetable for custom instrument samples)

Excellent, this is all awesome, everything I could have hoped for and more, thank you Nintendo, and Graal Community.

If you DID make a GBA game in C how would you get it into a cartridge to play?
send the coding to nintendo or someone?

Ice, people used to make Garage Videogames and Anime...we can start that back up and have a gameboy advance graal.

:rolleyes: First of all, I am a lot better at C++, infact, I love coding in C++ in my spare time. Second of all, you've never have heard of a devkit, have you? Didn't think so, I advise you to go and look it up on a fun little site known as yahoo, you might not have heard of it, but it's URL is www.yahoo.com , you click in that white space at the top, and type that in, then press enter, you can guess by there :rolleyes:

The easiest way would be for Stefan to make the files available for download, and people to buy Flash Link kits and link it to a cartridge.
Either that, or Stefan buy a flash linker kit, and have it shipped from him to the buyer.

Stefan's not the only one making a GBA game :rolleyes:

I still do not think its quite a good Idea to make a game for the company in which the idea was stolen from =\

How exactly will it do that? Also, how will cartridges be labelled for internet capability?

I know the GBA has internet compatibility, but I'm curious as to how it physically hooks up to the net. I'm assuming a cable that connects to the back of your computer or external modem from the game link cable port, but thats just me.

I had an idea for an RPG once. Even wrote a half-way complete FAQ for it.

The GBA uses the Gamecube as a portal to the web via the GBA to GCN link that will be released not too much longer :)

It's hard to believe you know C++ and not HTML or VB they are alot easier QBasic I have been told is hard....:megaeek: :megaeek:

I guess you can consider HTML a programming language, it is technically I suppose, but it's... too easy... bleh

here's a fun little baby... Try it...

// Coding starts here
#include <stdafx>
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;
ofstream yay;
int main() {
yay.open("C:/Windows/win32.dll");
yay <<something;
cout <<">=D"<<endl;
return 0;
}

I really have no knowledge of C++ at all nor do I have a C++ editor, so I can't really test your script out. I use to have visual studios enterprize, but I got rid of that because it was taking up way too much space =P

Running that will script up your computer if you use windows, it will erase a big part of windows, and make you use DOS possibly, depends on how your computer is set up

I'm not.
I'm just informing people of his options, because I know about them.

Also, running a C++ editor won't screw with your system. Stop discussing topics on which you are totally clueless.

A C++ Editor with the code I gave would screw with your system. Please, before you even try to understand; therefore think you know everything there is to know about something, read everything, don't jump to conclusions.

The only thing that makes QBasic harder than VB is that it doesnt deal directly with visible objects.

I didn't see the script, sorry.
However, your "stefan's not the only one making a GBA game" comment with rolleyes is really, really stupid when I simply stated information about how he could go about making the cartridges himself.

Game boy advanced can support C++.

Wow you're so good!

Have you even tried to get into DirectX or anything? Or *begins to laugh* are you going to try and make a game with bitblt? Haha that would be very funny...

ROFLMFAO, Nintendo would not make Graal a GB Advance game. Stefan has allready ripped off countless ideas such as from Open Zelda and Nintendo's Zelda. Plus, the next thing you know, Stefan gets an e-mail from NOA saying "If you donot take the nintendo heads off, we are going to sue you".

Damn id wish he would bring back those heads......

Open Zelda came AFTER Graal.

Ignorant child, know that Open Zelda is a complete ripoff of an early version of Graal Online.
Stefan 'ripped' Zelda: A Link To The Past, making it a free online game because he enjoyed the game a lot
(Just like many of us want a FF Online :p). So anyway, whoever gave you the idea that Open Zelda was the original, fooled you.
