- Emulating The original gameboy (DMG) and gameboy color hardware.
- Passing most hardware tests (see TESTING.md).
- Bettery save support.
- Accurate RTC emulation for MBC3 mapper.
- Accurate APU emulation with 48KHz audio.

The SFML front-end provide these keyboard bindings:
|+||Increase 5 to FPS**|
|-||Recude 5 from FPS**|
* I made this because in
Zelda: Link's awakeningyou need to press all of these buttons on the same frame to bring the save menu, which is annoying.
** FPS here is not the same with normal games FPS, where low FPS just makes the game laggy, here FPS control the emulation speed. Normally it will run on
60FPS. If the user set FPS to
30it will emulate in half the speed, this include audio, and CPU emulation.
|C||Clear current image buffer|
|S||Save image buffer to file|
Gameboy Printer is a serial device that can be connected to the gameboy and used by some cartridges to print images. Popular cartidges that uses it are:
- Gameboy Camera.

The printer can be opened by pressing the
The printer emulation allows to save the printed images into disk. The window
will only show
160x144 pixels, but the image is scrollable.
For installing or building
mizu we would use
If you want to use the development version of
mizu you can build the project
yourself. After downloading/cloning the repository, it can be build with:
$ cargo build
With release option:
$ cargo build --release
If you want to use the latest stable version from
$ cargo install mizu
Why not?. it is fun and educational, but even though I'm planning to make it as accurate as I can. If you want to see cool emulators, check my previous work Plastic.
