Holy crap! That's all it takes to capture the front buffer of the GBA screen?! I'm impressed. That's pretty 1337.

Yeah, that's pretty much it. I still need to learn double buffering and Vsync for the gba, though.

Isnt there a typedef or something for GBA C++?

Edit: Yup there is. So you can go


typedef unsigned short WORD;
typedef unsigned long DWORD;

WORD* VideoBuffer = (WORD*)0x6000000;
*(DWORD*)0x4000000 = (0x3 | 0x400);


Reminds me of old DOS programming. Excellent stuff.
