i am new in Game Boy Color dev

Hi,
I will start with GBDK 2020 then
Please Topic suggestions in c language to Learn
Pointer ? and something other concept ?
I don't want to waste time with a book with 1000 pages about C language - I think that would be nonsense for GBC dev

thanks

Re: i am new in Game Boy Color dev

I didn't know this tutorial, thanks
Now ....I intend to use two player mode in my project.

about the stuff i found

tutorial about these concepts .. there is something -> main loop.... and assembly

https://gbdev.gg8.se/wiki/articles/Seri … unication_(Link_Cable)_Tutorial

If i intend to use serial communication in my game, I should leave C language and learn Assembly ?

I will just to go,,,, a basic idea like creating a visual flag in top of the screen, indicating of
when both players are on the same stage (room) ...
and nothing more. I don't even need to view the other player in the room.

my game is just static sometime like (Myst - Sega Saturn).. understand ?

Re: i am new in Game Boy Color dev

by the nature of my game, doesn't seem so demanding in terms of performance.
Should i give a chance to gbdk and C.
I will be able to make physical cartridges using gbdk code ? no problem with this ?
thanks
