Thanks almost entirely to the contributions of NewRisingSun, I have a pretty gigantic hhugboy update to release today!

It now supports Sachen MMC1, Sachen MMC2, Mani M161, Mani MMM01, Rocket Games and Wisdom Tree mappers! Wow! (there was some support for MMM01 previously but it was basically completely wrong and didn't work)

Also: you can now use bootstrap ROMs, several bugs have been fixed, and the default controls now make more sense.

Get it here!

What are bootstrap ROMs?

The built-in ROM from the Game Boy that displays the logo(s) at boot

Oh, cool. Thanks. Out of curiosity, have you ever come across any of those 2 in 1 multicarts with Vast Fame stuff on Taobao? I was wondering if you knew whether or not those were just pirate carts, or if VF actually had a hand in making them

It seems like most of the older ROM rips sadly have the custom logos taken out. Oddly, my copy of the Song of the Pipa ROM seems to work, but not when the bootstrap ROM is used

the 2 in 1s, if they're the ones I'm thinking of, might have been made by a company that had a license to distribute Vast Fame games in mainland China, so they're possibly legit but probably not directly made by Vast Fame

Ah that makes sense
