It will play GBC ROMs but not GBA ROMs. I tried using ROMs from other sources, I downloaded a later version of VBA, nothing worked. I really don't know what could be wrong with it... All it shows when it says 'loaded battery' after I load the ROM, is a blank white screen. Nothing happens, the game just doesn't play.

They were working just a few days ago and I can't think what would possibly have happened to make them stop working.

Does anyone know what could possibly have gone wrong or how I can fix it?

Thank you for the suggestion, but after changing it, the emulator still wouldn't load GBA ROMs.

Options > Emulator > Real time clock...
You may have to delete/remove all battery save files and save state files from the folder before it works

Thanks again for your response, I really do appreciate you trying.

Right, now clicking on Real Time clock... *tries a ROM* still not working.

I don't have any battery or ROM saves in this folder but I'll look elsewhere.... I only found one save and it was in a totally different folder, but I'll delete it anyway and see how it goes......

Whadya know, it works now. Thank you so much, I would have been so stuck without your help ;

Does anyone know if it's possible to get a cable that trades from the computer's USB port from a Pokemon FireRed ROM to a Pokemon LeafGreen GBA game? I would like to trade my Pokemon from my ROM onto my game so I may get Pokemon like Lugia since I live in Australia and can't get them from events over here. :)

Thank you very much. ;D

I swear if you took a GBA link cable and chopped it in half with the wire sticking out and do that same for a USB and then tied them together in an electrician fashion then it would work but you'd have to have a running file with it.

Your best bet would be to get an action replay or a gameshark and then adding Lugia (or whatever other pokemon) to your game with codes. That's my advice.

Or, if it must be the ones you have in the Rom, buy a flashcart, put the Rom on it, then trade it to your Leafgreen through the standard way with link cable or wireless link

Search 'bamboogaming' on google and you'll be taken to a site which sells them.

That's where I bought my R4 from and I'm from Australia. They took about 4 weeks to get it to us because they kept delaying the shipment. But in the end it was worth it.

A person who goes to my school is a mod on the bamboogaming forums(sasuke_kun12) xD

Hmm...well I will get back on topic, I tend to use a Gameshark as you can download a game state from your computer via a USB port. In VBA, you have to go Export > Gameshark Snapshot...

All you need to get is a gameshark from an online retailer.

PS. I am from Australia and I do own a gameshark, got mine off eBay.

I'm not so sure, while the game do sell here in Australia, games as a whole are slow sellers here.

That said many forums about ROM Hacking and Emulation tend to be littered with Aussies (I swear GBAtemp is like 1/3 Australians), not entirely sure why.

When you write a rom to a FlashCard it doesn't transfer the sav file.My friend and I tried it even with the normal save.
