Would making a gameboy emulator be possible

i dont think it will but just wondering?

edit: forgot to say “in makecode arcade”


As far as the Gameboy screen goes, we can resize the simulator screen and change the color pallete. But I don’t think it would be possible to make an emulator that uses Gameboy ROMs in makecode arcade. I’m sure a couple simple Gameboy games could be ported, but they would have to be converted to Makecode by hand. Also, I don’t know if the makecode arcade proccessing is strong enough to play Gameboy games at a high framerate. But still, it might be possible. Things like this would probably be doable by some expert, but because this is a very small community, those “experts” probably have better things to do. However, there has been an emulator for the Pokitto, which is similar to Makecode.

Emulators require massive amounts of space and other computery things (CPU or something… I don’t know much about computers) and they need to read a lot from files and roms. It wouldnt be possible without super suped-up hardware that would just cost more to make than a gameboy


I think so! do you mean like a singular game (like Super Mario Land) or do you mean a full on emulator like Dolphin?
