Anyone else have truble playing some rom hacks?
« on: July 03, 2018, 11:20 PM »
IDK. i got the latest smokmonster gb pack for the x7 rev A. it seems some hacks don't play on my gba. like metroid 2 gbc hack and some pokemon one's just some i tried. maybe they worked on a gbc or something or the old gb everdrive. I get the same issue with the gb player for the cube. I tried pokemon black which is just a gb game and get the same issue with my normal GB.
Tried those roms on higan and still does the same thing, but they work fine with VisualBoyAdvance.
I dought that it's a bad download since most of the games work other then those hacks and some hacks actually work.
I only made this topic knowing that the smokemonster pack is picked and tested to work on real hardware. Anyone know whats going on or did he just put a bunch of roms this time and dumped them all in a folder.
The group that puts the smokemonster packs are awsome anyhow.

There were some original GBC games that weren't compatible with the GBA, so in this case being hacks I think the probability is higher.

some of the color hacks only work on emulators. There is a Metroid 2 hack ("Metroid 2 DX", if I remember correctly) that works on real hardware and another one that doesn't. I noticed some of the seperate categories in smokemonster sets often have roms that don't work on real hardware. Still nice packs, though.

meh just went throu the pack with hi gan. then checked again on real hardware. put it a folder called not working. took around half hour. There is prob around 10 roms not working in each hack folder, for gb and gbc. it's not a big deal. maybe i missed some cause i used higan first to make it quicker.
