Hardware – How to use
1. Insert the device between your Gameboy and the Gameboy Camera.
2. Once powered on, you will see which mode you are in by the corresponding LED – Record, Time lapse or Picture.
3. Select to take a picture with the camera like you normally would.
Record mode – the LED will start blinking each time a picture has been captured. The frames per second depends on the lighting.
Time lapse mode – both LEDs are on. Configurable from the software from 1 second to 60 seconds. Both LEDs will blink each time a picture has been captured.
Picture mode – the LED is on. Press A to take a picture like normal and wait 1.5 seconds, the LED will blink 3 times to indicate the picture has been saved. You can now press B to return to the live view.
This device will record or take pictures where you last left off after you powered off so it won’t overwrite any existing data.
Software – How to use
Once the device is plugged in, select Connect and it will load up the last image on the device.
Using your mouse or keyboard, you can change the image show on the screen. You can change the colour presets on the top right and move the slider bars around.
– Convert exported image range to GIF / MP4
Once the command window has closed, check the for the file in same directory as the program.
– Time Lapse setting
You can change the amount of time (in seconds) that the device will record an image. Press “Set” when you wish to store the change.
– Number padding
Add zeros to the front of the file name, e.g. 000001.bmp. Useful if you are importing all the bmp files to a different program so they stay in order
– Show erased data
Useful if you have erased the data previous but haven’t overwritten it yet. Select this option and then scroll through the device’s images that were previously shown as “X” error.
– Erase data
You can wipe the “master file table” which tells the device where the next picture should be stored. The next picture will be changed to position 1. If you don’t overwrite the existing data on the device, you can select the “Show erased data” to see it.
