Today I published zBoy v0.71, so I thought it's a good occasion to drop a note here on Vogons about it, since I apparently never have.

zBoy is a multiplatform emulator of the classic (black & white) GameBoy. It runs on Linux, BSD, Windows, MS-DOS, and probably some other platforms. Version 0.71 brings improved sound support, some minor optimizations and a joypad-related bugfix.

a new emulator for DOS!

Not that new - I released the first public version 10 years ago... :-)

what are the system requirements?

It's a 32-bit (protected mode) application, so it requires at least a 386. But for comfortable performances I'd rather recommend a Pentium-class CPU.

I'm sure, as time goes on, you'll be able to improve things so it can run on a 40MHz "486" just like old NO$GMB.. 😀 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXAIta5K0ko
Except, of course, you're aiming for perfection/accuracy.. In that case, quality has its price. Just hope it doesn't go sky high like bsnes, hah. 😅
