Share your Super Game Boy Borders Here

Unread post by fenderc01 »

I'm creating this thread to share SGB borders here. I will start by sharing one that I created.

I'm only somewhat of the way there, but this is what i got so far for a MiSTer-Kun Dracula themed one. Hopefully someone with the know-how on getting from this step to sgb can convert it and test it out!

I wrote a PowerShell script to simplify converting .png borders to .sgb borders. You will need to download superfamiconv also. I haven’t done extensive testing with this, so use at your own risk.

Code: Select all

Set-Location -Path $PSScriptRoot

$input_file = "border.png"
$output_file = $input_file.Replace(".png", ".sgb")

Start-Process -FilePath ".\superfamiconv.exe" -ArgumentList "-v --color-zero #00000000 --in-image $input_file --out-palette snes.palette --out-tiles snes.tiles --out-map snes.map --out-tiles-image tiles.png" -Wait -NoNewWindow

$tiles = Get-Content "snes.tiles" -Encoding Byte -Raw
$tiles_pad = New-Object byte[] (8192-$tiles.Length)

$tilemap = Get-Content "snes.map" -Encoding Byte -Raw
$tilemap_pad = New-Object byte[] (1792-$tilemap.Length)

$palettes = Get-Content "snes.palette" -Encoding Byte -Raw
$palettes_pad = New-Object byte[] (128-$palettes.Length)

Set-Content -Path $output_file -Encoding Byte -NoNewline -Value $tiles
Add-Content -Path $output_file -Encoding Byte -NoNewline -Value $tiles_pad
Add-Content -Path $output_file -Encoding Byte -NoNewline -Value $tilemap
Add-Content -Path $output_file -Encoding Byte -NoNewline -Value $tilemap_pad
Add-Content -Path $output_file -Encoding Byte -NoNewline -Value $palettes
Add-Content -Path $output_file -Encoding Byte -NoNewline -Value $palettes_pad

Does anybody have GBC border? Is there a way to autoload borders on a per-game basis? (for example by giving them the same name as the rom)?

Nope, there is no way to do that currently.

The dracula theme conversion worked, thanks to fenderc01!

I made 2 designs with a few variations! Download link

The DE10 Nano one was quite the exercise in SNES tile restrictions. It's exactly 256 tiles.

Since I don't feel like Super Gameboy borders match GBC games, I made some "Super GameBoy Color" borders by converting BlueAmnesiac's mockup borders.

You can grab them here:

Thank you BSeraph for these nice borders.

Could you also create a regular GBC border? Here is NIntendo's 3DS Virtual Console border that could be used as a base:

Hey, thanks! That's a nice suggestion. I remade that border to the best of my abilities - keeping the palette limit in mind. Let me know what you think. If you guys like it I can make more colors.

It's available on the Github page as GBColor Grape.sgb.

EDIT: I went ahead and made more colors. They're all on Github. Updating the preview image here:
