YouTuber and Director named Rodrigo Alfonso has used his amazing modeling and hacking skills to build Game Boy Advance games for Mega Drive, PlayStation, and SNES. To do this, use custom cartridges with Raspberry Pi 3 running the simulator.
In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Alfonso gave us a quick explanation of how the cartridge was modified and GBA rendered it inoperable. Boy Games has also released a demo showing some of the games working on the console, including PlayStation's Crash Bandicoot: Warped and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Battletoads and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars for SNES. and Megadrive's Snow Bros.
In short, Alfonso upgraded his 20-year-old 16-bit GBA to a 32-bit console via supercharged cartridges. In most cases, GBA was available, and to achieve this, Modder heavily customized 3D printing cartridges and installed them on a Raspberry Pi 3 with RetroPie.
Games are rendered with utmost precision. 240 x 160, but users can reduce it to 120 x 80 to increase the frame rate. To fill the GBA screen while playing games at half resolution, users can use 2x mosaic technology or play with the surrounding black border. Alfonso also mentions that those who like an old CRT monitor can use raster to create artificial black lines between each row of frames. The video stream is sent via the Game Boy Advance link. p>
