    ok i got all the pokemon roms i could find. some work fine but some have one of 2 messages after i "press start". one says "the 1m sub-circuit board is not installed, the other says something about the internal battery being dead or dry or something. this interferes with saving the game in game like normal. instead i have to use save state which is really annoying with my supercard. is there anyway to fix this or is it just the roms i have and i should search for better ones.

    Its probably because you don't have a real time clock going. I believe you would have to patch them.

    not all flash kits support the real time clock that you require. there are various patches for the roms to get them working, but i duno how it changes game play.

    i am using a supercard mini sd. the i get the same messages even when i use the vba emulator on my pc so its the roms. what patch or w/e could i use to try and fix the problem and will the patched version still run on my visual boy emulator?

    i should also mention the roms that work right on the emulator work fine with the supercard so i think its the actual roms and not my card.

    is there anything that will fix the "the 1m sub-circuit board" problem because it doesnt allow me to save either
