Pokémon: Liquid Crystal ROM Hack for the GBA
Do you need help on how to use and play Pokémon: Liquid Crystal? Or perhaps you are stuck somewhere and would like help getting through? Check out the Chat for more info. Make sure you follow the guides below before asking in the Chat.
How To Play The Game
First of all you will need to get yourself a Pokémon FireRed US 1.0 GBA ROM file (Such as the Squirrels release). These files are not available to download from the Pokémon: Liquid Crystal site, so you will need to find it on your own. Make sure that the ROM file is untouched and unmodified, version 1.0 (1.1 will not work and likely result in a white screen).
Next, you will need to get yourself an IPS Patcher such as Lunar IPS. It’s available for download here.
Once you have the IPS Patcher, you will need to download the Pokémon: Liquid Crystal IPS patch from the Download link in the Navigation Bar, or from the Sidebar.
Once you have your FireRed GBA ROM file, the Pokémon: Liquid Crystal IPS patch and the Lunar IPS Patching Software you are ready to go.
Open the Lunar IPS Patcher, and press the Apply IPS Patch button.
You will be asked to select the IPS patch to use. Browse to the Pokémon: Liquid Crystal IPS patch.
Then you will be asked to select the GBA ROM file to apply the patch too. Browse to your Untouched FireRed GBA ROM file.
Once you have selected the ROM File, Pokémon: Liquid Crystal will be applied to the ROM and ready to play.
Which Software Do I Need To Open The Game?
The software required to play the game is Visual Boy Advance Emulator, and can be found on the Pokémon: Liquid Crystal Download page from the Navigation Bar or the Sidebar. This allows you to play Pokémon games on the computer as well as other GBA/GB games.
