    How-to convert GBA/GB to .COD/.ALX

    Advertisement



    Okay for those of you out there who are crazy GBA/GB addicts heres a tutorial on how to convert your ROM's into playable games for your BB.

    To begin with you need these files:
    1. You must have java downloaded on your computer
    2. Download http://arktos.se/meboy/ver/latest/MeBoyBuilder.jar
    3. Then download my rapc packet ive made up http://www.uploading.com/files/5MRCI6NH/RAPC.rar.html
    4. Then download my premade .alx http://www.uploading.com/files/HZV3W96Y/MeBoy.alx.html
    Once thats done, then find a website that has .gb or .gba roms, any other roms i havn't tested and i doubt they work. Once youve downloaded your rom, save it to your desktop where meboybuilder should be. Run meboybuilder and click "Add Rom", and search for your saved rom (should be on your desktop). Once youve added it click "Finish", and it will make your .jar/.jad. Don't Change the filenames of the files it just created! Then move them in the same folder as the RAPC stuff you downloaded. Okay here are the steps for the RAPC to get working correctly:
    1. Open up your rapc.bat file and edit the following lines : Change MIDLETNAME to the name of what your game is (NO SPACES ALLOWED IF YOU HAVE TO USE A SPACE PUT A "_"(Underscore)); Change NAMEOFJAD.jad to the name of your .jad (Should be MeBoy.jad); Change NAMEOFJAD.jar to the name of your .jar (Should be MeBoy.jar)
    2. Then double click the rapc.bat and run it, it will export alot of files and a .cod and a .jar.. All you need is a .cod. Then you need to put the MeBoy.alx file in the same folder as the .cod, and open it up and edit it accordingly.
    Sorry if this is not as descriptive as you would like. I am in a rush to start working on a project for school :\

    Thats a problem in the gb/gba file.. i noticed its a .class file so that means its in the file your trying to convert.

    Are you sure they are .gb? I have learned that alot of .gba roms don't work too well.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you have to edit the alx to the correct .cod file name... But the rapc should work IF it has the right filenames of the jar and jad's in it. You can check it if you right click, edit the .bat file and make sure they all align.
