Default Pokemon Hacks Help!

Hi. I am completely new to this whole thing, and am very unsure of what to do. I want to play some of these new Pokemon hacks, like Naranja, Dark Cry, etc... I have absolutely no idea what to do. I have a Mac. What program do I need to play these games on my comp? Can anyone help me? I'd love to try other hacks too. I'd really appreciate any help! Thanks!!

oiy... mac, sucks to be you

even though you are using an inferior product, I guess I can try to help.

firstly, which generation of pokemon games are you talking about? GB? GBA?
In any case, just go to the mac section of the website and grab the emulator of whichever handheld you want to emulate.
Next you need the games (ROMs). You can't get those here, nor will anyone help you as it is against the forum rules.
once you have the ROM that the hack goes with (given the hacks are patches and not patched roms) you need to patch them to the ROM itself. Instead of explaiing how here, here's a link. Chances are hose patching programs are Windows only, so good luck finding one for the mac.

once all that's done just load the ptched rom in said emulator and play.

new-gen macs aren't at all inferior, only the software.

to me, new macs are an overpriced "low-budget" to "mid-range" machine that has the right hardware to do whatever I want... it's just comes preloaded with some crap I have to wipe off the hard drive.

btw, here's your mac patcher

O_o I'm pretty sure there are IPS patchers for the Mac. I remember seeing some.

I downloaded a GBA program from here. VisualBoyAdvance to be exact. I also downloaded one of the hacks. it ends with .rar . can anyone tell me what I need to do now to play this game. Like I said, I am incredibly new to this, and am not the best computer person! Thanks, and again, I really appreciate it!!

you need something like this.

after that, try reading the instructions if you can't figure out how to "unrar" the file.

if you just downloaded a patch, you still need the actual game to apply the patch to. use the utility I posted above. I have not a clue how these things work as I am not a mac person.

if you want a good vba emulator go to 'vba faqs' and download the emulator.when you've finished the download open the vba folder click extract,follow instruction that come after.the open the extract file you'll see the vba file drag and drop the vba rom of choice on the vba file and it will load.if you dont have any roms go *ROM SITE OMITTED*.

**Please don't post ROM sites. Second ROM site posting gets you banned.**
