I should also mention since the game is not very long the difficulty can be considered very hard at points was made to make the playtime a bit longer. Anyone that has played it please comment and let me know what you think :) !

Yes - It is silly/lazy but I did that initially to stop high lvl disobeying - a bit odd I know, next rom hack won't be like that aha..

I also seem to be stuck after obtaining the oh-oh, articuno won't fight me, and the other entrance nearby is blocked by an old man

You'll have to head back to Victoria Beach (left of Churchill) and in the house on Elk Island to grab the Phoenix stone to evolve oh-oh. Then Articuno will fight you. Unless you have the stone then use it on Oh-Oh. After you beat Articuno (no cutscene but basically the end) after the old man will let you pass for an easter egg.

So great news ... with the release of mGBA 0.9.0 it works on that emulator as well!

I feel like I'm missing something here. After patching the IPS file to my rom, VBA doesn't seem to want to play it. Is there a certain rom that I need to be using?

Should be fine on a vanilla file - if the screen is turning black try mGBA 0.9.0 or a different VBA (Could be if you're using VBA-M)?

Yeah, I am using VBA-M and when I try to load the game the screen turns white. Should I be using a different version of VBA?

Yes Use VBA (Not M or any other variant) or VBA_Next or mGBA 0.9.0

Yeah, I think it's my FireRed file. It'll open on VBA-M but not VBA or mGBA 0.9.0. I'll see if I can find a proper file for this and try again. If you have any recommended sites, I am all ears!
