Yeah, friggin slow and i can't even get it to work in NO$GBA.
Even the patch codes don't work for Pre-Patch EXP.

Tell me the settings you have so i can speed it up.
MY SETTINGS:
3D - Softrasterizer, Uncheck all boxes.
Emulation - Enable Advanced Bus-Level Timing

So, if you say i should use NO$GBA.
What are the patch codes?
Fix Codes?
And how can i apply it?

Have you tried downloading from an actual Japanese website? Also, remember that many roms have a bracketed letter with them. Look for one with [J] in the name. That generally means Japanese version.

I don't think this question belongs here...
Well anyways you can make ROM LIKE gba in RMXP but not GBA itself.
If you want to have GBA as your base then you need to hack some GBA ROM =)

Maybe a total nUb question.. also may not be in the right place but.. I heard one can obtain a unique FC on an emulator.. if I were to trade Pokemon with someone with a rom/emulator version would those Pokemon damage my game at all?

I was wondering if anyone knows how to properly play a Pokemon ROM hack using the NO$GBA emulator. I ask this because NO$GBA allows me to play Pokemon Fire Red at the same speed I get from Pokemon Ruby using any other emulator. If anyone could help me figure this out, I'd be very grateful.

Don't use No$GBA for hacks It's very unstable.
Use VBA for playing hacks =)

If you want to try your edits, no prob, if you want to play, don't do it.
Of course if you want to be angry for losing your progress because No$ crashed, it's your choice =)

Hey guys! I am trying to play the hack Pokémon: rijonAdventures. I am emulating it on my Android phone using the gameboid app. Whenever I start the game i get an error code 0001 and I am also not able to save the game. I tried changing the save type to Flash 128KB and it still don't work. Guys please help me out, I want to play this hack super-bad!

EDIT: It actually says "A 1M sub-circuit board was not recognized." "The game cannot be saved."

First of all, you don't need to use No$GBA. It's outdated and has issues.

Secondly, what version of DeSmuME have you got? If you've got 0.9.7, then it's all good.

Thirdly, here's the settings on DeSmuME that I have it set to:

3D: Softrasterizer - all boxes checked
Sound: Any of them, make sure the Advanced Bus Timer box is deselected for the sound settings.
Emulation: If you're using an ARM7.bin, ARM9.bin or firmware.bin on the emulator and the boxes are selected, then it will slow down the Emulator. So if you want it faster, then deselect the boxes for ARM7, ARM9 and firmware, don't forget to also have "Advanced Bus Timer" deselected.

If it's working, then the only problem everyone is going to have... is the EXP problem in B/W, which I know is an Emulation problem as well, as no one has gotten to that stage yet (except for a patch, which is permanent to a ROM, so make sure you have a clean one if you're going to patch it with an EXP patch).

Feel free to copy and paste the message below or edit it in any way:

~How to make DeSmuME faster~

1. Make sure the Advanced Bus Timer box is deselected for both sound and Emulation settings, please note that it is turned on by default in Emulation settings.
2. Deselect the boxes for ARM7, ARM9 and Firmware, as they will slow down the emulator.
3. If there's areas with many objects that it renders slowly, try using the frameskipping option, by clicking Config > Frameskip and select any number, the higher the number, the more frames it'll skip per second.

Never, never, never, NEVER use No$GBA for Gameboy Rom Hacks. It's never compatible. Use VisualBoy Advance instead. It will fix everything. Just remember to set the save type to Flash 128K.

Edit: If it's a DS game, you might have deleted those files and it cannot find them. It's a really buggy emulator. Try DesMume.

Yeah, I've heard bad things about No$GBA. My emulator is kind of a mess. It's a VBA Mac version that's a few years old, yet it works completely on my WINDOWS VISTA computer. VBA is the best choice for players of hacks.

Does anyone know of a way to convert save states between emulators? I've been playing Red and Silver on my Android phone using GBCoid. It works great except I tried transferring my files to my PC and use an emulator like VBA so that I can trade between games to get pokemon who evolve through trading. I've tried everything I can think of, but maybe there's a step I'm missing. It may be impossible, but if not, your help would be greatly appreciated.

Desmume is good for comps with around 1GB ddr5 VRAM, and 4 gb ddr3 ram iirc
Try running programs on 7 in XP compatability mode. It's in properties if you right click.

Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere, i could find it with the search. I was playing through a Pokemon Ruby ROM hack and it froze while i was holding spacebar to speed up playing, which i probably should have been more cautious about since it happened with another hack too. anyway i saved while it was frozen and when i loaded it up again it was still frozen.
Can the save be unfrozen or is it unfixable?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

How can I edit Trainers, I know how to do it in Unlz but of course the pallete is different so it looks messed up, so when I try and change the pallete in APE, It gives me a warning that it's 'Dangerous' to change the pallete, the reason is when I click ignore, the game freezes when I view my trainer card.... HELP!

I searched the threads and couldn't find a solution to this so here goes:

My desmume emulator won't let me save in-game anymore on Pokemon Volt White meaning it won't save after Ghetsis is defeated and I can't do aftergame. It keeps saying there's already a save file and it is impossible to save over it. I used save states most of the game and deleted my in-game save (which was very old) just in case it was blocking the new one but it still persists. I do have a previous playthrough I used in-game saves and savestates on in there that went to after-game just fine. What I think the problem is, is that I keep loading the save state that still thinks I have a save file on the menu screen I haven't erased. Does anyone know how to fix this? The fate of the after game portion of my walkthrough depends on it and I really hope I'm not screwed here. Another weird thing about this is that the in-game save I erased WAS part of this playthrough I'm having problems on so it DID save fine at one point.
