    I'm getting a white screen when I try to run Pokémon Emerald with the GBA emulator. Every other game works, and the ROM for Pokémon Emerald works on my computer and on other emulators on other platforms.

    I can't seem to find anything here on how to fix this. Does this happen for anyone else? How can I fix this?

    Thanks.

    Somewhere near monkat
    Are you using game_config.txt? Check the GBA emulation spoiler in the Beginner's Guide.

    I'm already using game_config.txt. I've tried it with and without it, I always get a white screen.

    Are you using version 1.30 or 1.21 as the game_config.txt doesn't work with 1.30.

    I'm using 1.30. I'll try it with 1.21.

    It should work perfectly with 1.21. If it fails then download the ROM from a different source.

    No worries.

    Usually if someone is having difficulty with a GBA game on the emulator it's fixed by using 1.21 and game_config.txt.
