Pokémon emulator self-trading issue

Hi! I am playing Pokémon Crystal on mGBA emulator. I opened a new multiplayer window to self trade with my Pokémon Gold rom. However, when I try to initiate a trade on both windows, it says “your friend is not ready.” I mapped the second window to a controller and pressed the buttons at the same time but still nothing. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

What are patches in roms? sorry I'm a bit new to this... Also, is downloading the release of mGBA in the link the same one that is posted on their website?

As far as I know, it is possible with the paid version of the app; I'll check it for you in a moment...

So it appears to function similarly to GBA emulation. In that case, take a look at this. (It's specifically about how to trade between two instances of the same game to obtain trade-exclusive pokemons; however, instead of launching another copy of what you're currently playing, simply launch another ROM.) (Oh, and it's also important, at least for me, to have savestates in both games before trading in case something goes wrong) (and, obviously, save both games afterwards, not only one)
(Also, if you don't need to load from savestates, you might break your clock.)

This is similar to what happens when you press B during evolution. Level it up again, and it will continue to try to evolve, just like any other Pokemon that evolves beyond a certain level. Make sure you're not pressing anything while it evolves the next time it levels up. If that doesn't work, I'm not sure what will. Maybe look at the FAQ on the site I linked to?
