ABeezy's Nintendo Game Boy Advance Carts 1.3.0

About This File

Hey all,

 

I have another set here to release. This took me far longer then I had hoped but I am happy with the result. After looking all over the internet there was no complete set for Game Boy Advance carts in a nice matching template... everything was poor quality and skewed images, etc. I took the task of making this set. I have 981 GBA games and this pack includes carts for all but two games that I simply cannot find images for anywhere. This is an NTSC only set. There are 983 files in the download (i think I had a few duplicates as I only made carts for 981 games minus the two missing for a total of 979, leaving 4 "extras" in this pack. If anyone finds those duplicates/extras let me know so I can remove them and re-upload. Also the two games I am missing artwork for are:

  1. Pocket Professor: KwikNotes Volume One
  2. Crash & Spyro Superpack_ Spyro Orange_ The Cortex Conspiracy + Crash Bandicoot Purple_ Ripto_s Rampage.png

If anyone finds images for those two please contact me so I can get them added. Also, since I didn't get to verify my games against an "official" list it is possible I am missing some official NTSC games. If I am please also PM me the with what the game is and potentially a link. Looking online at various sources there are some discrepancies on a few releases and if they were NTSC or not. Anyways, enjoy everybody!


What's New in Version 1.3.0   See changelog

Released

Four more NTSC carts have been added:

  1. Strawberry Shortcake: Summertime Adventure: Special Edition
  2. 4 Games on One Game Pak: Nicktoons
  3. 4 Games on One Game Pak: Nickelodeon Movies
  4. See below

The fourth game is listed below with a little more context:

  1. Polly Pocket! - Super Splash Island (Vivendi)
  2. Polly Pocket! - Super Splash Island (DSI)

The same game was published by both DSI and Vivendi, both are now included in pack with the following naming (and may have to be corrected to suit how you handle this in your build):

  1. Polly Pocket!_ Super Splash Island-01
  2. Polly Pocket!_ Super Splash Island-02

"-01" being the Vivendi version, and "-02" being the DSI version.

 

As always if there is anything that needs to be fixed or added let me know.

Whoaaaaa, How long did this take!?

Stunning work! thank you so much for posting :)

It took way longer then I had hoped lol. Many, many hours over the past month (with breaks in between to work on and do other stuff). The Covid lockdown and being home allowed for me to do this lol.

 

But thank you very much! There was nothing good online for GBA carts so I wanted to contribute :)

I'm impressed by the workload you took on. ?

If I compare to the latest DB from Hyperspin forums, and look around a bit, not that I'm an expert in GBA games, for the US retail games, it looks to me that you are missing:

Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss, The (USA)  -  Dr. Seuss' - The Cat in the Hat (USA)  There are two games with about the same name, you're missing the cart for the first.

Gadget Racers (USA)

Knights' Kingdom (USA)    This is a LEGO game, not sure why it doesn't have that in the DB name.

LEGO Bionicle (USA)  -  Bionicle (USA)   There are two games with about the same name, you're missing the cart for the first.

Sega Rally Championship (USA)

Thank you very much, I appreciate it!

 

Also thank you for posting these missing ones. I was bound to be missing some in almost 1000 images lol! Give me a bit to get these ones created and I will post them here. If you or anyone notice any others let me know! ( I think LaunchBox combined a few games which is why I missed one; I also now have an official list to reference against too, which is helping for my next project.... that ties directly into GBA carts ;) )

Great work @ABeezy13! The GBA carts was a project long due, and you tackled it like a baws. Scrapping and restoring cart stickers is a frustrating pain in the neck, so kudos for this milestone ?

Thank you!!!! I found nice cart sets for Gameboy and Gameboy Color online and it was bugging me there wasn't something for GBA, so I took on the feat haha. I have a nice template for DS and 3DS too; maybe someday I will be the brave soul to do those as well.

@Kondorito & @diskmach Wow guys, good finds. That's why I couldn't "find" the other Spyro/Crash. I have gone ahead and made the new one with the different code. I will update in a few.

 

Also nice find on the professor cart; was trying to  re-purpose it a bit as its very blurry when enlarged to fit the cart. Need to perform a little more plastic surgery on that one before posting (worst case is its a blurry cart instead of no cart!)

The sticker can be frankesteined, as the only thing that you do not have a resoruce for is the Professor's face, the rest (game clear logo, background from the box and company logos) can be acquired easily in HQ.

Pack has been updated with the missing Pocket Professor and Crash/Spyro cart. If any other missing carts are spotted let me know!

So I found out I am actually missing the following:

 

  • 4 Games on One Game Pak (Nickelodeon Movies) (USA)

 

I am not sure this is even named correctly... I can't find any carts for this game boxes nothing... its almost as it doesnt exist. 

 

I am also working on adding a cart that I realized was missing (I have the art for this):

 

  • Strawberry Shortcake: Summertime Adventure Special Edition

 

So if anyone can shed any light on the Nickelodeon one that'd be awesome.

@diskmach Awesome thanks!! Not sure how I wasn't familiar with that site but wow, I dig it. Random question for you or anyone paying attention to this tread. Launchbox doesn't seem to find this game in the database either when searching/editing the metadata. It locates the other 4 in 1 Nicktoons game but not the Nikelodeon movies (this one). Curious if anyone has ID # for this game in LB?
