    Yes, the GameCube's GameBoy player functions exactly the same as a GameBoy Advance so it will play everything.

    Hey, I just sent you a message about this very subject! What a coincidence

    Most original Game boy games should work, it is just the unauthorized releases I don't know much about.

    Hello there!, yes just got your message on ebay regarding game boy games compatiblity with nintndo game boy player, so thought i'd see if anyone knew on here if it would work, the person above seems to think so. Is this where you first saw my listing for mario 4 or was it ebay? Just seen that you was the person who told me abit about the game (mario 4), i reckon it will work but no real way of telling, wish ii knew someone who had a game boy player, i had never heard of it till looking it up just now.
    kind regards

    I saw it here first. I figured you had a Game Boy Player to test it with. Oh well, as long as it works with the Game Boy.

    The GBP is also completely regionless like the GBA as well. It will play any region cart regardless which GC/GBP you have.

    Everything works except for GBA movies and some special carts with tilt, light or other sensors that would break the controls. The emulation used is hardware based, containing a standard Gameboy Advance CPU

    Asking questions is how people learn things.

    That shouldn't be relevant to their query.

    I've played a few original GB pirate multicarts on the Gameboy Player, and some GBA flashcarts, and never had a problem.

    Hi, Thank you for sticking up for me, i have explained to the other member that i am selling the game to someone on Ebay and don't want them to buy it if it doesn't work on their system, i always like to be 100% before selling something, looks as if i will work so thats good.
    Thanks again for your kind words.

    If it works like a GBA then it probably won't play the Gameboy version of Road Rash. My understanding was this GB game was not GBA compatible and that is my experience when I try and play it on a GBA. I think it crashed right after the title screen but its been a while.

    I think the Super Game Boy is superior for playing original Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. The GameCube controller's d pad never felt right to me. It's like it's too small or not precise enough... or something.

    SGB does not support GBC games. GBC games with backward compatibility for GB to run in B&W will work on SGB like they would on GB. SGB2 also does not support GBC games.

    I wonder why there is dislike for the GC d-pad. That thing feels like the d-pad from a GBC which makes sense if you're playing with your GBP...

    It's awkwardly placed. I'd much rather use a DualShock1, the Hori pad, or an arcade stick.

    Well, you can still used those, it's just pretty awkward to be tilting your Gamecube, or dragging it out into sunlight, lol

    Oh, placement. That makes more sense. I felt like everyone kept finding the small form factor of the d-pad to be disappointing instead of where on the controller it is.
