    Might having to modify lines and lines of code in the rom

    Yeah good luck with that. I'm actually thinking @Sonic Angel Knight 's post was reasonable now.

    If anyone wants to take a look at the hex code, get Bizhawk's emulator at http://tasvideos.org/

    But no one's ever gotten to play this rom on a standard vba before! Not because they couldn't, but because they just didn't care

    hmmm just guessing but if you have a new3ds then why not try reinand as it has many patches and yes I know to go through every line to see if the codes are the same (been there done that(stupid x and y)) maybe reinand can have the solution bc if luma is not letting you load it then try a different cfw that is all I can think of or you can just find a patch that allows the injection of unlicensed games to be played on a 3ds

    What does reinand patch though? I though Luma had everything Reinand had and more.

    just an assumption I mean reinand was made just for the new 3ds so I mean yeah keep luma just try to do a dual cfw but it's just a guess not sure but reinand does patch security checks I think let me check..

    You said the game is translated, does it work without translation? If so then maybe the problem IS THE Translation. :P

    Still not many emulators Including 3DS were designed for unlicensed or homebrew games, so it won't be easy to be honest.

    but don't patches for security check exist in the 3ds hacking scene so people can play unlicensed games on the 3ds for example pokemon prism?

    Pokemon prism is a rom hack of a official game, this is a unlicened game since the beginning. There is no record of SNK releasing metal slug for Gameboy color as far as i know. Rom hacks do not require security checks as far as i know, logically speaking cause Is based on official licensed games. This terrifying 9/11 is another story. :blink:

    oh i thought metal slugs was a licensed game thanks for clearing that up but then there is no point in doing this bc it's not going to work for the 3ds

    There is licensed metal slug game for GBA not GBC. Metal slug advance. This game is a pirated bootleg game of a unreleased game, like many common boot legs come from.... CHINA! Some bootlegs are actually just a rom hack with copyright and licensing removed from title screen and box art, some use original coding, like that somari on nes. But this is just a bad rom hack of a unreleased game. For all we know, snk maybe didn't even make the game at all, it could be totally unrelated to the original company.

    but if there is a metal slugs advance then... oh wait the romhack is on gbc ugh tho I am 14 and being able to do algebra 2 and chemistry I still can't find a solution beside going through the codes so I would suggest and give up and play it on a pc it would be less of a hassle and save your time

    i tried searching issues relating to getting games that are unlicensed to run on an emulator and it all I can find is things that deal with ips patching and or just using HHUGBOY emulator.

    the next thing I think worth trying is using a SRAM patcher to see if it will run.

    By the way, what shows up in a hex editor is not the code of the game. Programmers don't write code in hexadecimal.

    I've actually coded gameboy in hex a little.

    Try it in BGB, it's really accurate.

    but could they edit the hex code, and have it... idk do some shit?
    and I agree with @Robert McCoy
    Maybe we could patch out the code that blocks it from being loaded?

    That sounds like an awful time. I mean, writing full scale applications and games in hex sounds like straight-up hell. If it's even possible. I didn't even think it was, but I guess I was wrong?

    It may very well be possible. I don't mean to sound like an expert or anything.

    I am thinking I might contact the person who uploaded the game originally because they seem to know how to patch unlicensed games to run.
