PSA: The Virtual Console is not an accurate emulator
« on: March 09, 2019, 07:52:23 pm »
The 3DS Virtual Console may behave differently than a real system or an accurate emulator in particular instances related to glitching. If you have a question about performing a particular procedure, please indicate what system you are using to play the game.

More details can be found here. (This applies to both R/B/Y/G and G/S/C, as the assembly instructions are the same.)

However, there are still options available if you want to stick with using the Virtual Console for ACE, such as this and this. In non-ACE cases, there's also a good chance that what you're trying will simply work anyway.

GBA VC is the only exception to this, as it's hardware-backed.
Ask me about betrayal.
Ask me about depression.
Ask me about death.
Ask me about destruction.
Ask me about hardship.
I've been through s**t.

It's not an exception, while it's hardware-backed it's not confirmed to be 100% true to the original GBA. Particularly for timing things.

that's fair. At least it's not total s**t like the others, though.

Which, I should maybe add, you (and me, I guess) are willing to help users get around if they're able to dump the ROMs from their VC copies.

Overall though, I feel like if you don't want to play them through VC, just don't play them through VC.
