Emulation SQ Thread


Well, seeing as we’ve had an influx of moderated threads that revolve around simple questions that can be easily be answered in a thread like such. We’ve decided to make this thread; it will be used as home for most Emulation problems. Such as ‘What is wrong with my ROM?’ But, questions like ‘What is the better Emulator?’ Still merit their own threads.

Rules


1.Search the forum before asking.
2.Do not ask for or provide ROM links.
3.Do not flame spam etc.
4.Follow all Emulation and PokéCommunity global rules

Further Information


If you need any further help, PM a section moderator.

But DeSmuME doesn't have the cheat system in it.

Edit: Also this makes the sound lag badly.

I downloaded Heart Gold with a semi english patch to play on my NO$GBA 2.6a. I'm learning how to RNG Abuse in it, and to do that, I need save states. However, whenever I make a save state and try to load it, it says either "The rom-image has crashed." or "Undefined opcode - with no debug vector defined." and my game crashes. Usually the second one. Is there anyway to fix this so I can use save states?

I can't use Desmume either, too slow and no cheats. xP

There's no AR in PMD as far as I'm concerned...
There are only Wonder Mails...

Shawk : I don't think ya can use other saves then the game ones...

Hello all,

I have a relatively major issue relating to Pokemon Centers. Namely, whenever I try to enter one in a Generation 1 rom, the game freezes. I've tried multiple roms, so I suspect that it's something to do with my emulator. I use VisualBoyAdvance version 1.7.2. If anyone can solve this issue, I would very much appreciate it as it is rather difficult progressing through the game without Pokemon Centers. I am aware that I could use a different emulator, but I like VisualBoyAdvance and I would much rather solve the problem than avoid it.

Cheers.

Ok, I am having trouble with the Dolphin emulator. The one that's supposed to play Gamecube and Wii Isos. But I can't get any Isos to play on this. How do I fix this?

Ok, even though my other question hasn't been answered yet I have another one. I found an Emulator to run Mobile games but I can't get it to work. It keeps saying,"Fail to download Jad File". How do I fix this?

Edit again: How do I play DS Roms where you have to speak into a mic to play the game?

It's because of games... HG/SS are too hard to be emulated on No$GBA...
Ya have to have special version of it to make it work... but this sentence and lags will be there too...

When it starts working slow go to the menu and click on,'Shut Up'. That should fix it.

I am having trouble with the Pokemon Dash Rom. I can't get Pikachu to run. I have to keep rubbing the icon in the direction the arrows are pointing and Pikachu walks it doesn't run. And it won't keep on moving either. It moves one step, then stops. What am I doing wrong here?

When I record videos of me playing games on VBA how do I format it into a video file so that it can be opened up with other things besides VBA?
