[Scummvm-devel] GBA port in the work

Yep, the GBA has a separate area for video and RAM and i can use the ROM as
a location for all read-only data. The screen res is 260*140, so that means
that i'll have to implement either a stretch or a scrolling mechanism. The
screen depth can be either 8-bit paletted or standard 16-bit mode.

It might be possible.

Does the GBA have a separate area for video memory not counted in those
Do you need to put all data you need to access in those 256 kb, or is it
possible to use the ROM as a location of read-only data?

What screen resolution/color depth does the GBA use?

Best Regards,
Ludvig Strigeus
