Only .gb files (original GameBoy) are now recognized as supported in Rockbox. Previously, both .gbc (GameBoy Color) and .gb files were recognized as supported.

I confirm this bug on H120 too. The current builds (latest checked r14227) starting from some build between r14207 and 14216 are missing some lines in viewers.config. The file in the SVN is complete. See

Is there any processing applied on the file before including it into the zip archive?
Could not the change of plug-in paths in the revision 14214 cause disappearance of some of the lines?

Below are the missing lines. Comparison was made between r14227 zip and the file from the same revision from SVN.

bugger, it seems I broke and viewers.config ( removes unused plugins from the .config), if you know perl I would very much appreciate a patch, my perl skills are crap :p

either way, ill look into this asap
