Turned out nice, is this the joytech screen? And can it play Gameboy and Gameboy color cartridges?

No, it's an Innovatek screen, had it for a while. Composite input on this screen is very nice, less so with the PS2 JoyTech screen. Keeping the JoyTech screens for RGB systems.

Gave you credit in the first part of the video for your awesome logo work.

Yes, finally made the video, been meaning to do it for a few days now!

No, unfortunately; as those games required 5v to run, the GBA steps-up the voltage to that for GB adn GBC games in the GBA; the AD Adaptor does not do that, so only plays GBA titles. No loss though.

Had intended to show Mario Pinball Land but wanted to show a game that needed dexterity to play (Puzzle League) and the graphic quality (Advance Wars) so didn't show a 3rd game, could have done but didn't.

Video viewings spiked nicely due to this! :party:

Had a few more subscribers to my YouTube channel as a result; getting close on my channel to 5000 subscribers and 2 million hits (both of which are milestones); which will happen first I wonder? :bigwink:

I keep away from making trivial videos that have no substance.
