    Ok, so my other thread turned into a different problem solving thread about arm9loaderhax installation. Now though, it's installed and GBA VC's like Pokemon Ruby still aren't working. Help is much appreciated!

    Which 3ds are you using?

    Firmware?

    A9LH?

    Latest version of Luma3ds?

    Do CIAs successfully install?

    Do regular CIAs work?

    What happens when you try to run a GBA VC game?

    Maybe it's a bad CIA?

    (We need more than GBA VC don't work) ;)

    I have A9LH latest version, regular cias work, one of my gba vc games (FFVI) works but I have a hacked rom of pokemon emerald (pokemon emeraude plus) who gives me a blank screen.

    I read some where in this forum, Most pokemon GBA games using the save format that currently not support by GBA VC.
    You need to patch the rom to be able to save it, But I guess you would lose extra save data from decrese in save file size.

    My suggestion is..... you better play it on Emulator.

    You both seem to have problems with Pokemon games, they require a bit of hex editing as their save files aren't compatible with GBA VC as far as I know

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-fix-all-save-problems-for-pokémon-games-vc-gba.433266/

    Or you can look on "That ISO Site" for pre-edited versions of Pokemon VC games, some Rom hacks are available there too :)

    If you have a save problem, those hex editing link could help you.
    Although as I suggest, GBA VC doesn't support Pokemon yet, you would lose some save data.

    But, for the white screen problem, I don't think those hex editing could help.

    Yeah, it's my fault about White Scrren. But, Be able to boot & save doesn't mean it's alright.
    It doesn't change the fact that Pokemon Originally use save type that not support by GBA VC.
    Patching the rom to change the save type would technically effect the save, that's why I decide to give that suggestion.

    Hope you can be able to play it without facing further problem though.
