Common Pokemon GBA ROM Hacking Problems and Fixing Information

Games Don’t Play

You might find playing the game too difficult for newbies who don’t have prior experience playing these games. Though it may sound so, actually, it’s not. Technical skills may require, but it’s not complicated as you thought.

When you can’t play the game, there are several reasons; 

  • Your emulator doesn’t support the game or can’t read the file format.
  • Error while in the patching process.
  • The game requires a different version of base rom.

GBA emulators can read .GBA files, while some can also read both .GBA and .zip files. Pokemon GBA ROM Hacks with these extensions can surely play with any compatible GBA emulator. The problem is, most of these games are shared as a patch file; it could be in a .ips or .ups file formats. The solution for this is patching the file to its required base rom.

Note: Some GBA rom hacks require a v1.0 rom version, be sure to check its required version first before patching. Moreover, some rom hack requires special software for patching, so again, check your game if it requires a different patching app for successful patching.
