How does this work?
Although possible, the Lua runtime within ComputerCraft is far too slow to run a GB/GBC emulator effectively.
MineBoy works by using a server/client combo. With a server which runs on NodeJS outside of CC, and a client which is running within CC and connecting to the server by using a WebSocket. The server allows multiple emulator instances on different CC computers and is able to maintain this at an almost native framerate.

  • Streaming GB/GBC from cloud.
  • Saving save files to floppy disk.
  • Multiple clients.
  • Handheld remote controller using rednet.
Download & Install
This is more complicated to use than the average ComputerCraft program, beware.
