Qboy: the gameboy piracy starter kit

Not just the UK's hottest gay rapper anymore: QBoy. This QBoy is a combination of Flash Writer + GBA Emulator + Rom Manager & Downloader. Designed to be as user friendly as possible as an introduction to piracy.

- the USB cable permits the QBoy to be used as a PC joystick.

- No way to write emulated NES, SNES, GB, GBC, Z80, SEGA roms to the card- even though the QBoy flash card is capable of playing these files. The provided download manager is a bottle neck for content - this is not for homebrew games.

Check out the puzzlingly, useful download manager screen - I would think that this device would make an attractive target for Nintendo lawsuits... especially as this lacks the homebrewing capability - one legal usage for existing writable GBA carts.

I believe it's called QBus, not QBoy.

So it's a 'DL GBA roms for Dummys' tutorial and a knock off black market GBA? That's absolutely hilarious. The fact that it can only do commercial gba roms is terrible.

Someone should put the cart in another writer though. The Visoly Xtreme link external usb writer is compatible with flash carts OTHER than just the oversized Visoly Xtreme variety.

I think we've just been tagged by the self-same QBoy - gay pop sensation whilst he was ego-surfing. Googling your name and following the links?

Excellent. We have one confirmed gay reader.
