Gold Version bug
« on: August 10, 2013, 12:54:22 am »
In my emulated gold version, if a pokemon is put into a box other than box 1, it turns into a glitch pokemon (everything about it is overwritten with 255's)

Is this a problem that spans all gold ROMs or is something just broken with my one?

It doesn't seem to be happening for me. I tried BGB, VBA-RR v24 svn422 and an old version of VBA from 2005.

What emulator are you using? Does there have to be a certain number of Pokémon in the other box for it to work?

I guess you might have a bad ROM. Try checking its MD5 hash and seeing if matches up with the hash here.

Forgiveness is timeless, and moments we look back on humble the soul. Jesus said it best. You must be blind to see and must see to be blind metaphorically is said. I don't think there is one Messiah nor a definitive truth, because we find truths in relative moments. However, there may be unknowable truths and sometimes it feels we have got to embrace the mystery and what we don't know.

Thank you for this lovely artwork Nyapon! :3

Hmm, the hash matches. However my emulator revision is literally 10 years old so I might try downloading a newer revision :P

I have VBA 1.7.1

I downloaded VBA 1.7.1, and indeed, it has some problems emulating echo RAM and switchable RAM banks, causing many bugs while playing certain games.
Downloading a newer version of VBA will probably fix the problem.

Or you could just use KiGB and have no problems at all.

KiGB is known to use game‐specific hacks to fake accuracy. Gambatte and BGB are better options.
