Currently learning C (no programming background) with the goal of making a working game cartridge for a multimedia project I've been itching to do for a very long time.
Thanks to Jay Van Hutten (@djedditt) for responding to my YouTube message regarding his Flappy Bird cart for GBA (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNm9kNV9rnw), which led me to
finding Ryan Carson (rychan) and his useful GBDK tutorials.
I'm halfway through "Up and Running with C" by Dan Gookin on Lynda.com, but any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I found this awesome forum and would like to introduce myself.
For some time I wanted to make my own working game cartridge. I am comfortable with Assembly and C programming and also know a bit of electronics. As a first step int he process, I am now working on making my own card reader. A very crude prototype on a bread board is working and the next step is to design a PCB which has both read and write functionality. For the cartridge, I plan on making a simple PCB with a memory chip and 32 connectors.
I am happy to share my results when I've made some further progress. Let me know your thoughts. :-)
just call me Alex anyway here I go!
I've just recently wanted to try my hand on C Programming after countless no go on BASIC To create Sega Genesis games so I've thought I try C programming to make Gameboy and Gameboy Color games, I'm new to become a C Programmer myself and would love to get into C to make games from it to.
I also own and Run a Developer name of Scythe & Genesis Games - and there's a twitter of that too which will contain news and other tweets from time time.
So I'm basically new to C programming since I really wanted to program something for once on this language!
I'm ISSOtm, if you want a name you can call me Panda.
I have some good experience with GB disassembling and reversing thanks to the awesome Pokémon glitch community.
I develop my own game in ASM as well as some cool ACE techniques, and a friend (Mantidactyle) gave me pointers to this site, so...
Let's get rollin' ! I hope we will have good times on this forums >
Hi! I'm Plasma, I've been playing and collecting Nintendo and Sega systems for longer than I can remember!
Besides playing the games, I also like to make and modify sprites and other game graphics. I've played around with game hacking a little, graphics hacks here and there, some Game Genie, Game Shark, and Action Replay codes occasionally, stuff like that.
I've experimented a bit in C programming, I quite enjoy it! I've mostly made a few simple image viewer programs for the SNES and Game Boy so far, I hope to expand on that as I keep experimenting.
I would have a tough time deciding exactly what my dream Game Boy game would be, although I would say one that makes great use of the Super Game Boy's enhanced features like having added SPC music and sound as well as enhanced graphics when played on a Super Game Boy would be a good one to dream about!
