    @Gamevet
    Looks great!
    Thanks!

    @DaveMMR
    Ordinarily, you'd be right.
    But I'm spoiled by iPad & it's 10+ hour battery life.
    To have to switch back to AA/AAAs will seem, to me,
    like an unwanted journey back to stone knives & bearskins.

    @Gameguy
    You are correct, Sir!

    @Tanooki
    I'll give "Dragon's Lair" a look see on YouTube.

    Thanks, all!
    And keep those suggestions coming!

    Maybe the first one, which had the jumping issue and Diddy's rolling was too slow, but even that one had better hit detection, and Land 2 and 3 had near perfect physics with more natural jumping speed and spot on hit detection.

    I remember in DKC Color I was in Winky's Walkway, and I kept trying to jump on that first Vulture as always, and it looked like I was landing square on it, but I was actually landing to the left of its hit box, so it kept killing me. I couldn't kill it until I landed perfectly in the center of it. I never had this problem in the SNES or GBA versions. I could let the jumping speed and such pass, but I can't stand such poor hit detection.

    Funny enough, I just found out Amazon's product description mentions the poor hit detection.

    One problem with the translation is quirky hit detection. In other words, players might think that they jumped on an enemy's head properly, but end up dying anyway. This is a small price to pay for so much Nintendo goodness in a portable package. --Robb Guido
    Maybe it was passable back before the GBA version came out, but now other than nostalgia, there's no real reason to play this version. I only played it first this year, so I have no nostalgia and no more incentive to play it. Shame, because I like the 8-bit visuals and such, and I'm a huge fan of the GB Color, being my first Gameboy and all (played the original years before once though, my brother had one).

    You really can't compare the first three Harry Potter GBC/GBA games with the general Harry Potter phenomenon. They're not any worse as RPGs than any other. And this is coming from a person who isn't a fan.

    So what's the name of this emulator anyway if it resurfaces? I want to try it, and it again makes me hate crapple for being so sensor happy over stuff.

    Can you suggest some GOOD GBC games to use with it?

    Once I have a long enough list, I'll go shopping around on eBay or wherever
    so I can purchase the carts themselves & then make legitamate ROMs out of them.

    Thanks ye!
