Gameboy Emulator KiGB And Brainbox Updated
7:44 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story
Prior to his departure to attend Apple Expo in Paris, shareware programmer and roller coaster enthusiast Richard Bannister has released updates to two of his popular applications.
Bannister's KiGB, the OS X version of the free portable emulator for Gameboy, Gameboy Colour, and Super Gameboy, has been upgraded to version 1.6.8, in tandem with the Windows version of the application. As well as addressing several bugs in the original PC code, the update adds support for 5-speed auto-fire, and the option to enable or disable individual game configuration. As of this printing, however, Bannister has received news that the update crashes when attempting to play certain titles in Colour Gameboy mode, so emulation enthusiasts may want to keep an older version of the program around until the situation gets addressed.
Brainbox, Bannister's new, multiple-puzzle game, has also been updated. Version 0.2 of the brain teaser bundle sees the addition of a fourth challenge - Reversi, as well as a few minor bugs, and tweaks of the game's difficulty levels code. The elegant lunchtime distraction, good for a few quick games during your lunch break, requires a $10 USD registration fee to enjoy completely unencumbered.
The 520 Kb Brainbox and the 708 Kb KiGB, which both require an OS X 10.2-capable box with a Quartz Extreme AGP video card, can be downloaded by following the links below -
