I heard your comments about Fraps not wanting to record Maize. Are you using VBA as the emulator? If so, maybe switching to a better emulator will do the trick. BGB is the best Game Boy emulator that exists, so I suggest using that instead when playing Gen 1 & 2 hacks. The VBA save file is perfectly compatible with BGB, too! Link:http://bgb.bircd.org/
Edit: The only drawback is that it doesn't have the "space bar hyperspeed" feature. You have to right-click and go to options to change the speed. In the framerate box, you enter a percent speedup. For example, if you enter "500" in the framerate box, it will run at 500% speed, or 5 times as fast as normal. Enter "0" to return to normal speed.
