MeBoy builder 2.2 is an emulator which will allow you to play gameboy and Game Boy colour games ( Roms ) on a java based mobile phone.
A fast mobile phone will provide best results, the newer the mobile phone the better the results.
How it works is you download the file meboybuilder to your pc and run it. You search the internet for the gameboy or colour roms, download them then load them into meboybuilder (it allows you to locate the file on your computer then load it into it. Once you have put all the ones you want into it, you save the file as a jar file then transfer it to your handset and run it like a java application.)
If your handset is old (more than a few years) and it runs slow on it. You can go to settings in meboybuilder and adjust the frames per second one by one until it runs proper speed. Also you can adjust the graphics option to increase performance of the application.
MeBoy builder 2.2 is only limited by the speed on the mobile its self. In saying that you will get a much better speed and result from original gameboy games (black and white). We also haveNDS Emulators
for pc use.
As with most emulators it allows you to save your progress at any time even if the game does not support saving. The amount of saves is only limited by your mobiles storage capacity.
I deeply hope it gets revamped over and over again. It isn't perfect its buggy at best and can require some patience and tweaking of the frames in the settings.
The creator of it is doing great things and these emulators open a whole new world of mobile emulation. Look out for more emulators for mobile phones in the future. It is only the beginning of mobile phone console emulation.
It uses standard gameboy and game boy colour roms, same as if you were using a gameboy emulator for a pc. Do a search for gameboy colour and gameboy original roms not meboy roms. Why, because it uses the normal gameboy and colour roms. There are no special roms, only normal roms.
Now everyone can enjoy such classics as pokemon red blue yellow diamond emerald silver gold crystal fire pearl ruby and that's just the pokemon fans. Well known classics include mario world, pacman, donkey kong, tetris and space invaders.
MeBoy was ported from JavaBoy, a java based gameboy emulator for pc's Created by Neil Millstone. Thank god for javaboy. Its programs such as java boy that many good emulators are built from. Over time with many version revisions it will be flawless but for now its so close to perfect its just not funny.
There are updates or upgrades every now and again. The newest version is version 2.2 at this time. You can download it below. Previous versions are
As you can see there have been many revisions and lots of work done perfecting performance, speed and compatability.Download Version 2.2
For those of you who are wondering, yes there's are nds and nintendo dsi emulators out there. i personally haven't used one in a while so they have probably come along way since then. The ds and dsi should function quite well now but you cant get it on a phone lol im talking about pc.
