Welcome to the gbadev.net forums!

We are a community of hackers & enthusiasts who enjoy making, playing and sharing homebrew for the Game Boy Advance.

The scene has been pretty active on Discord in recent years, hosting regular game jams and developing all sorts of libraries and tools for each others' benefit and to satisfy our curiosity!

But a public space for long-form discussion is something that we've been missing, especially since the old gbadev.org forums broke in 2020. Plus, Discord won't be around forever, and we shouldn't keep all our eggs in walled gardens, or something like that.

Please make yourself at home, and come say hi in the introductions thread!

Just keep in mind the rules:

Rules:

  1. Be nice to each other - we're an easygoing bunch but we won't accept bullying, harassment, or bigotry.

  2. Don't spam, demand attention or send unsolicited private messages.

  3. Don't engage in piracy, or share leaked material (general discussion around such topics is fine).

  4. No NSFW content, as this community is open to all ages.

You are always welcome to PM a moderator if somebody is breaking the rules or otherwise making you feel uncomfortable, or if you have a question about the rules.

Yay! Very happy that this place was created! It's been at least 10 years that I haven't stepped foot in a forum, I hope this place turns out nicely!

Why couldn't the old forums be repaired?

The old forums broke due to a PHP version upgrade. For a while they were basically read-only, then at some point last year they died for good.

We were in contact with one of the admins and nudged them to fix it several times, also offering to help if possible, but they assured us it's something only they can do. They are just very busy and haven't found the time to do it yet, and after 2+ years we got tired of waiting 😅︎
