Heya and welcome here. a lot of C programming skills.
Is it harder to program to the Plus CE because its been done with many other calculators I dont understand why its been taking so long?

The method used on 84CSE, 84SE can't be directly used. And given it is a particulary hard task, I doubt it will be done in one day..
Wouldn't C be fast enough for such emulator on the CE? Also the app issue isn't a problem if you can manage to read multiple 8xv files at the same time (with all games being split into 64 KB appvars)
It must be carefully implemented to emulate the gameboy's z80 code as close to metal as possible or else it will simply end uptoo big and fail rly hard lel.This was possible before because it was using an actual z80 processor and the only real issue he had was to emulate was the graphic chip and some hardware-specific crap.Now we've got the CE with its 24-bits addressing mode, which means it's not fully compatible with the z80.If it was simple to program it, he would have done it a while ago but the thing is we're still waiting for it and it seems like calc84maniac has dropped outthe surface of earth.Also, there isn't 256ko of free RAM, only like 180Kb.
Ah right. I am fairly sure that some ASM games do that, though (copying OS-used RAM to flash), but it's kinda risky if the user pulls a battery in the middle of execution or something. That said, I am fairly sure that even 128 KB of RAM alone would be enough to get a GB emulator to work on the CE if your nickname is calc84maniac.
