View Full Version : VBA-M (SVN945): Pokemon Emerald Start is Looping
May 13th, 2010, 07:37
This is a strange one: I've managed to get SVN945 of VBA-M working in wine, but I can't get it to actually get past the opening menu for Pokemon Emerald... I've already enabled the 'Real Time Clock', and set the save type to 128KB, but it's still going right back to the beginning of the intro movie right once I select 'New Game,' or even 'Options'. :( Even stranger is that I've not had any issues whatsoever with any other games I've played on it... Does anybody have a clue what the issue might be here? :???:

verify the rom is a good dump.

It seems to be, as it's md5 checks out, and it runs just fine on SVN877... anyhow, here's the output of ROM Information, in case that's helpful:
Game title: POKEMON EMER
Game code: BPEE
Maker code: 01
Maker name: Nintendo
Main unit code: 00
Device type: 00
ROM version: 00
CRC: 72 (72)
Perhaps there's some setting I've missed?

Ensure, you are pressing A and not B.

...now I feel really stupid... apparently it was configured to use Z as B instead of A... Thanks for the fix, and sorry that you had to answer my stupid questions. :emb:
