Lameboy DS 0.12

Considering it’s been over a year since last version released, there’s not many changes in this version. However I just recently returned to the lameboy project and started with some small issues. It is possible that you won’t need to wait another year for the next release.

Lameboy DS 0.12

Change log:

  • fixed: better interrupt timing (should fix Mario Land 2 boss levels)
  • fixed: multipacket SGB messages (fixes Pokemon R/G/B in battle color overlays)
  • added: backlight of the menu screen is turned off when not used
  • added: fullscreen scaling (ignores aspect ratio)

    It’s been a long time since Nutki gave us some news. “I am alive but overwhelmed with personal issues” would suffice…

    I’m just saying.

    Excellent Emulator for all those classic game boy titles.

    It seems to be the most compatible one up to date.

    The only thing I’m not going crazy about is is the stretched screen filter. It could be way smoother.

    Hey, I’ve just recently discovered Lameboy DS and it works great. The one problem I have is that, I’ve been playing Pokemon Silver on an emulator on the PC, and when I try to copy the .sav file of Pokemon Silver into my Lameboy DS file and run it on my DS, there is no .sav file, it’s like I’m starting a new game instead of continuing where I left off from my PC. Anyone know a solution to this? Please and thanks.

    can i use gameshark codes on the lameboy???

  12. Elranzer says:

    Two games, Rolan’s Curse and Rolan’s Curse II, are unable to start for some reason. On both games, you cannot press Start to start the game from the title screen. But the game isn’t frozen, as you can use the D-pad to move the cursor around. A very strange bug.

    It’s not bad ROM dumping, as the two games work in other emulators, such as VisualBoy Advance.

    It’s too bad as these two games are both very fun, Zelda-style overhead action-RPGs.

    This is the best GB/GBC emulator on DS, thanks to the developer.
    Hope for the new version!

    Less than a month and a half for the year mark.

    We know you can do it, Nutki. Keep up that awesome work of yours.

    preety cool emulator, but it missed few things from goomba for gba. I talkin about palette colour – much more about 15 sets other for sprites and background. And X button as regular/wide switcher should be regular/wide/streched. Goomba can also show things out of the screen, so resolution could be wider.

  24. Xenogiaz says:

    The energy bar in the bottom menu flickers like crazy in megaman (1).

    Great Emulator!

    This program works really well!

    Thank you.

    I’m having trouble loading the .sav file from my flashcard (Lameboy DS 0.12) into VBA (Version 1.7.2). I transfer the file (Pokemon Red (U) [S][!].gb) and save to the directory. VBA loads the rom, but as soon as I load the .sav the starts running at 400%+. I select Continue and the rom freezes. Any advice?

  29. Lochie says:


    Does this emulator only support GBColour, or GBA as well??

  30. Radish says:

    @Lochie: Lameboy only supports Gameboy/Gameboy Color Games.

    all of my pokemon games except poke trading card game, let me save but when i restart my DS it just says new game and option. there is no continue 🙁 help?

  33. Radish says:


    Tap on the bottom screen, use the D-Pad to scroll done to “State slot” then change the value to State slot 1,2,etc. Use the save/load function to save/load the game.

  34. Teun says:

    i hope one will be released for gameboy advance

    I downloaded Lameboy DS a few days ago and I LOVE it! I like how the interface is simple yet (very) effective!

    I am wondering about the frame-rate issues with CPU-intensive games such as Shantae: maybe you could look into putting a Slot-2 device (EZ Flash 3-in-1 or M3 GBA Expansion) usage option into your emu since some game like Shantae need a lot extra “stuff” to run it smoother since that’s why Slot-2 expansion packs were made anyway (to provide extra memory and such).

    Otherwise, this the greatest GB/GBC emulator I’ve ever used. You’re going a great job!

  37. Kraze says:

    Lameboy works almost flawlessly for me.

    The one problem I am having is with the sound inn Nettou King of Fighters 96. The sound of the charging up, kicks and punches don’t seem to play. Is there a fix for this?

  38. Marcus César says:

    Lameboy offers suport for gamelink in the “Dragon Warrior Monster 2”? And in other games?
    Thanks ans sorry fot ther bad english…

  39. John says:

    Hi, I dont get it :S, I dont see the games in the lameboy, but i copied them in the same folder as it. help is appreciated :s

  40. Jonez says:

    I have problems booting the Kirby GB, GBC games.
    Can you fix this please?

    Ps: 0.13 must come any moment now. Your year is almost passed…

  41. LameboyFAN says:

    @John at the end of the games are they .gbc? You can not load zip files. If your games are ZIP files then you have to extract them.

    hello all, i noticed also it has been a while since the last comment…I’ve read through all of them and am having what seems to be an undisscussed problem. 🙁 i have noticed, that when i save my game in the ongame menu,
    not the state save, but in game save, im not getting a .sav file. i’m wondering if anyone has/had this problem, and if so, how/if they fixed it. the main reason i’m wondering is so i can put my save on vba for gs codes. so im not haveing very good luck. =[ any help would be appreciated!
