Can someone explain what this means or has a link explaining it? I'm sure this is great but not sure what it actually means!

The link is in the first post: i try to explain it in the video.

There is a page containing that rom and telling something more, but as it has the rom inside, i'm sure i shouldn't link it here,
but searching for "ags aging cartridge" should bring you right there.

TLDR:
- Nintendo Test rom
- available for 20 years
- first emulator(Nanoboy advance) to pass all test in september this year
- GBA core and Nanoboy are still the only to pass it.

My apologies, I didn't see the youtube link. I advise everyone else spend 3 mins and watch the video, this is great work - well done!

I am guessing not passing these tests was in relation to Kevtris saying the core didn't pass the tests he had made?

Brilliant that the core is no even more accurate, great stuff!

No connection to Kevtris.

There is a quiet active GBA emudev community on discord.
In the last weeks they often discussed this aging cartridge,which i didn't know about before, and how they try to get all tests running.

I thought it was a good time to also work on it and solve things together.
All of them except Fleroviux/Nanoboy don't have all tests passed, but i could get hints for subtests, which is very valueable.
