View Full Version : Question: Help with running ROMS

August 18th, 2009, 12:27 PM
So I found some cool looking ROMS (Prism, ShinyGold, Liquid Ocean) but they don't work in my VBA. So do I need a different version of the VBA or what? Sorry if this is in the wrong spot, but I didn't see anywhere else for this to go. Thank you to anyone who helps!~

The image is the message I get when I try to open the rom...

Okay, first of all you're trying to run a .zip file, which doesn't work.
Second, you need to have a ROM to patch the .ips file that's inside of the .zip file to.
Third of all, you need a program called LunarIPS to do so.
Finally, you run the ROM in VBA, not the emulator.

To sum it up, you can't run a .zip file in VBA.

These "Prism, ShinyGold, Liquid Ocean" aren't ROMs, they're patches.

1) I normally run games from zipped folders. (The files inside are .gba, however)
2) Where do I download LunarIPS?
3) What? I am running it in VBA.. aren't I? If not, then I have no clue how the heck to open the files...
