    I just recently bought an ELink 512MB and I tried to play Pokemon Fire Red on it. When I first tried it, the froze on the intro, so I thought I'd try to remove the intro with the GBA Tools, but when I did it still froze but it just showed a blank white screen. Can anyone help me with this? Thank you.

    I'm pretty sure you have to patch it with the RTC fix for it to work.

    Thanks ^-^. I'll go try to search for one and see if it works.

    EDIT: It's pretty hard to find one and most of the patches are only for VBA, so if anyone knows where I can find one reply back. Thanks again. =]

    FireRed DOES NOT HAVE RTC. Use GBATA or whatever it is to change/fix the save type and see if that helps. FR uses Flash 1M saves which some carts and emus don't like.

    Isn't that using the SRAM Patcher thing in GBATA? I tried that too but it still pauses. :/
