Netplay function

Post by FerdinandoPH » February 2nd, 2018, 22:05

Is there a way to emulate the IR transceiver for doing netplay and be able to play multiplayer games?
If not, is there anyone working on it?

On hardware the IR is pretty much a 1-bit on/off switch... the protocol is all done in software at real-time... that's very unpractical for netplay, not even the most popular GBC emulators support IR communication!

Also so far didn't heard anyone bothered to reverse-engineer it from the games or anything in this matter.

Personally i think is not worth all the headache... specially when i don't even have a 2nd Pokémon-Mini to perform tests with IR...
