Issue with pokemon roms
« on: June 03, 2020, 04:26 AM »
Hello, I have been at it for the past few hours constantly trying new pokemon rom hacks.
with red DX i get a yellow screen error, and on red++ i get that yellow screen again but telling me "you need to play this on gb colour or gba)
I am on a gba so this makes no sense.
goomba.gba is in the sys folder
another type of pokemon firered hack works but gives me the 1m circuit board error, how am i supposed to fix that?

ive tried patching original red with red++ and all i get is a frozen game boy screen.

I am all out of options, i just want a playable pokemon 151 hack that can save.
all of my other roms work, but pokemon just seems to have all of these problems with it.

it doesnt help that my battery needs replacing in the everdrive.
that thing died a week from recieving it brand new, yikes.

The problem is you're trying a GB/GBC hacked game inside an emulator (Goomba) running on top of another "emulator" of sorts which is the Everdrive GBA. This is asking for incompatibilities.
First because the rom authors commonly make these hacks with PC emulators in mind.
Second because Goomba's emulation isn't accurate even for regular games.
And last because the only way to run GB/GBC games using the Everdrive GBA is through emulation, you can't use the GBA native GB/GBC mode like when you insert an original GB/GBC cartridge.

You *could* have better luck using the Everdrive GB on the GBA console, but I can't assure you those hacks will work through a flashcart.

Red ++ v3.0.2 by Mateo and Red DX by TheScarletSword, right? I can confirm that they both work* with my GB x7 on my original GBA.

I agree with FeverDrive. Goomba is not recommended for this.

Best to save up for a GB EverDrive to play Red hacks.


*I played them both for about 2 minutes at least.

Even better to get a EZ-Flash Jr.

What about its battery consumption? I've yet to find a comparison between the Jr and a X-series ED. I think It's better to discuss this further on the GB Everdrive board.

I can conform all 3 rom hacks work as intended on real hardware aka EZ-Flash Jr.
