How are you editing your ROM? The best way is to create an .ips patch and let that program apply it to the rom during the .CIA creation.... Or simply patch the rom with lunar IPS prior to the conversion.

It's not found in the database because it's a new rom you just made that isn't in the database. Only official rooms are included.

The database is just a list of gene names, publishers, etc. Simply enter the information manually.

How? edit the gba converter or the rom?
Just manually type the info in the injector, but now that I think about it, you want to inject emerald right?, you should wait for the next version of the injector to be released as there have been recent discoveries that makes patching the save type of some Pokemon games unnecessary, if you don't want to wait you can do it with the current version just read the next page:
