ROM Hacking Discussion / Yoshi's Island on GBA
« on: June 19, 2015, 12:07:25 pm »
One of the major obstacles to running all SNES games on a flash cartridge is the fact that Nintendo utilized expansion chips such as the SuperFX. Yoshi's Island on the SNES used a SuperFX2 I believe. Nintendo successfully ported it to the Gameboy Advance in the early 2000s (I think 2003ish).

What I'm getting at, what exactly did they do to negate the Super FX on the GBA? Does it have its own implementation? Is the GBA just that much more powerful than the SNES? If so, is it possible to do whatever it is that Nintendo did and perhaps hack a "SuperFX Free version for use on flash cartridges?

(This is all out of curiosity, I'm not requesting anything)
