Gameboy development and music tool file archive

September 14th, 2010

I’ve just started a Gameboy development and music file archive with the aim to find and mirror Gameboy-related utilities for music and software development. Currently, the only useful section is the music tools folder, but I’m planning to expand the development tools folder as well. If you have any file that you would like to see added, or just want to comment on the idea, feel free to leave a comment here, mail me on the address given below, or join the discussion on

Thanks to Scott Evans for making Indices and thus providing useful information.

    I’m trying to get some drum kits off of the LSDJ section of your website. After I download and unzip the file, I’ve just got one file that is of an “unknown file type”… what do I do!?

    Hello Quinn. As with any LSDj kit, you should use the LSD-patcher application, which can be found here.

    I have the patcher but it can’t open the file? I would assume the file is a collection of all the seperate kits made by rex but I’m not sure, which is why I feel like I’ve done something wrong.

  4. Quinn says:

    It just says “File Error” when I try to import the file that I get from your site.

  5. nitro2k01 says:

    Can you tell me exactly which kit this happens for? Does this happen for all of the kits?

  6. Quinn says:

    Step by step this is what I’m encountering:

    1. Click the file on your page.
    2. Choose “Save File”/Click okay.
    3. After the download is completed I open the folder and click “Extract all files. There are two files present. A MAC version, and one just called rex-42 kits.
    4. I choose my version of LSDJ and then attempt to open the rex-42 kits file in the file patcher… file error.

  7. nitro2k01 says:

    These archives contained special Mac OS X control files which may have caused the problem you’re describing. Rex42-kits should still have appeared as a folder, but apparently it didn’t. I’ve uploaded new versions of all the files. Please try downloading them again now.

    The folder is there now and everything is working perfectly :) Thank you very much good sir! Really appreciate it!

    Hello. This is cool. However, I am trying to find a certain ROM with sha1:FA5287E24B0FA533B3B5EF2B28A81245346C1A0F. I’ve been searching everywhere, and I can’t find it at all. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Alex. I’ve now added the AGB version of the CGB boot ROM to the file area.
