I've been trying to remember this past few days just what emulator this is.
I remember it being a Gameboy/Gameboy Color emulator that had the option to use custom borders for some games, and also it had the pretty awesome feature of making the games play in actual Widescreen 16:9 without stretching the pixels.

Here's a video for reference:

I keep trying to remember what emulator it was, but I cannot seem to find it anywhere.
I thought it was Goomba Color, but I already downloaded the latest version of that one and it doesn't have any option like that.

I also think it was a GB/GBC emulator made for the Gameboy Advance.

Anyone who can help me out to know what emulator this is and where to find it?

Visualboy Advance has the option for custom borders but very few were made and for some stupid reason the screen is really small. Since the custom border can't be stretched then you have to play with a small screen. Without the custom border you can also resize the screen to whatever size you want. It also supports SGB borders too. You gotta choose that option tho and then there's a black border around regular games, which sucks.

Oh I didn't really specify.
What I'm seeking is the Widescreen hack feature, not so much the custom borders.

I just mentioned that to help narrow down what emulator I was seeking.

I still can't find the emulator with the widescreen feature yet.

That is Goomba (A GB emulator for GBA) running under a GBA emulator.

Oh so it's Goomba and not Goomba Color?
Goomba can't run GBC games right?

Ah I see.
So I wasn't that wrong after all. :p
Makes me wonder why the devs dropped that feature from Goomba Color, might give the source code a look.

Thanks for the help!

Well, it doesn't really work well for most games. One big issue that crops up a lot is sprites "popping" into existence at the border of what the normal resolution is.

Getting GBC to run on the GBA was considered quite the feat. All nonessential features tended to get cut to facilitate it.
