    Hi there,

    I want to play Pokémon Leafgreen (German Version) with VBA bot it does not work. I tried several sources for the VBA and several different sources for the Pokémon Rom. When I start the game only a white screen appears. With other games the emulator runs just fine.

    How can I solve my problem?

    not the save state... save states don't have options...

    battery save...

    i can confirm, change battery save size on options->emulator->save type to 128kb,
    it solves it...
    i had it on default and was working, changed to 64k and the white screen show up

    I changed the Save typ to 128 but the problem still appears no matter if I use VBA M or 1.8

    Make sure the rom is good according to no-intro.

    Also if you use VBA-M there should be a vba-over.ini next to the exe that will set the save type automatically. Don't use VBA 1.8.0beta3 and consider using mGBA.
