The various releases can be found here :

I actually ended up making my own little tool to convert image files for this, but there is also a Game Boy Tile Designer in the gbdk-2020 repo :

- what is a good game boy emulator for windows
BGB is what I am using , found here :

- can I debug in C using an emulator (don't know asm)
BGB supposedly has tools for doing this, but I haven't dug into that yet.

- game examples or tutorials of gbdk, where to find?
This video tutorial series got me started : … Grkx4iPGJo
