Are there any 32bit gameboy emulators for RISC OS out there?

Regards,
Mike.

Sort of. GCCSDK autobuilder has a port of gngb. By which I mean it compiles, but I don't know if it ever got tested, and it certainly needs some RISC OSification.

Did he mean (32-bit) Game Boy emulator, or (32-bit Game Boy) emulator?

Looks like gngb only emulates the Z80-based Game Boys, not the Game Boy Advance or Nintendo DS. (Granted, it's probably hard to emulate a GBA on a RiscPC, unless you can virtualize the ARM7TDMI, emulating Thumb instructions when needed. Then again, I've heard that GBA games spend most of their time in Thumb, because of slow ROM access, and needing higher code density, so you'd be fully emulating most of the time anyway.)
