Mysterious Black Screen in Emerald?
« on: May 18, 2016, 05:35:38 pm »
The other day, I got distracted from messing around on my Emerald cart and looked away.. when I looked back, my screen had turned black. No music played; it was frozen. When I turned it off, the screen didn't shift in coloration or change at all. Later, this actually reoccured in front of my eyes. I had just exited a battle when suddenly the screen just turned blank. I have no idea what is going on, so I'd like to consult you guys! I've never encountered anything like this before, so I'm super curious.
I don't understand code, but boy do I understand how fun it is to screw up your game

Remember to properly blow the cart before usage ^^
(Nintendo always failed to put that in their manuals... Maybe it is a strategy of theirs to force us to buy newer consoles O_o)

Guess so. That's what I initially thought, but I really haven't had/used this cart for very long at all. It is used though, so maybe the person who used it before me went to town on it :P

Ooh, yeah, I'll try that next time I start up the game. Thanks ^^
