Just like to add that I did use the programmed "skip credits cutscene" text box and still got the glitch after trying to get a pokemon to evolve after beating elite four. What's interesting is if you cancel the evolution, the game froze the next time I tried to change zones (going from lance to gary, in my case).
Great rom hack though! Definitely the best way to play FireRed ( <3 Larvitar Starter)
