the easiest solution is open vba then go >> options >> emulator >> then enable "Real Time Clock". if that works. good. if it doesn't there is one more alternative:
1: create a blank new text file and place it in the same directory as vba
2: rename the text file to vba-over.ini (instead of .txt)
3: open the text file and type the following:
then save it and your done.
this will only work for pokemon emerald. if you want the real time enabled this way in another game simply just replace the [BPEE] with whatever the game code is. find this out by opening the rom then going >> file >> rom information>> then find the game code and replace the [BPEE] with that code. for both codes at the same time, just type it twice such as:
(for both emerald and sapphire)
then save again. done
