GBaccelerator GB FAQ
Why does the Game Boy screen get lighter/darker/flickerier when I change speeds?mastercl0ck
The contrast and refresh rate of the LCD in the Game Boy is affected by the clock speed of the entire system. You can compensate for these changes in lightness by adjusting the contrast pot on the side of the Game Boy.
Can I use different buttons to control GBAccelerator GB?mastercl0ck
Unfortunately, no. Because of the way the original Game Boy reads buttons, the GBAccelerator must look for specific timings on a specific combination of button lines.
Is Up/Down control mode available for GBAccelerator GB?mastercl0ck
Unfortunately, no. Because of the way the original Game Boy reads buttons, it takes all 3 button wires to read the status of only 2 buttons. Therefore, there aren't enough buttons available for Select, Up, and Down.
How much faster does the Game Boy run with GBAccelerator GB?mastercl0ck
Using Fast speed, the Game Boy will run at about 1.5x normal speed. Using Ultra speed mode, the GB will run at about 2x normal speed. Using Slow-Motion speed, the GC will run at about 0.66x normal GBC speed.
What systems is the GBAccelerator GB compatible with?mastercl0ck
GBAccelerator GB can be installed in the original Game Boy (DMG) or the Game Boy Pocket.
What exactly does the flashing of the power LED mean?mastercl0ck
Steady=normal speed, single-blink=fast, double-blink=ultra, and fading in/out=slow-motion. Note: these codes do not apply when using wireless (if equipped) since that also causes the power LED to blink.
