New glitch in Pokemon Emerald

During gameplay, when I'm in a battle and after I go to the backpack or to switch to a different pokemon, the screen gets garbled up when I go back to the battle itself. Here is a screenshot to illustrate. If I win the battle without switching pokemon or using any items then I'm OK. Also, it fixes itself after the glitched battle, but only until the next time I use an item or switch. But you can't NOT do either of those things all the time! How can I fix this problem?

Are you using any cheat codes? I've had similar bugs from certain codes. If you're using any codes, try disabling all cheats, close VBA, reopen it and reload the game (many cheats won't get turned off simply by disabling them) and see if it still happens. If that fixes it, then try turning your codes back on one at a time until you find the culprit.
Nope, no cheats. I tried extracting just the ROM file and running just that and it seems to be fine now. I guess the .ips file that comes in the zip is the culprit. Well, thanks for the help anyways!

Having the IPS file in the zip file with the rom could indeed be a problem. I didn't know how VBA would react to that, so I removed the IPS file from the zip before playing.
I don't recommend using any patches unless it fixes a known bad rom to the correct state or translates it to another language. (Very useful links btw)

I don't think some dumpers test them fully on any emulator and just base their patches on previous problems that keep people from playing similiar games. For instance the clock fix/save fixes are not needed on VBA as far as I can tell. The same goes for the Fire Red and Leaf Green roms.

There is one game that seems to freeze in VBA but the "cracked" rom does not freeze in VBA. That game is called Iridion II and I dunno but maybe it's a problem with VBA. I don't know emulator programming so I can't say why.
I also got a glitch in the game ..
after about 5 minutes .. the game crush my system ..
I play and all of a sudden with no warning the computer is doin a reset ..
this is the error signature I got when system XPSP2 started again :
BCCode : 100000d1 BCP1 : 39C856AC BCP2 : 00000005 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : F7E5E73C OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1
it appears as emerald ... require the author of this VBA emulator to release a new patch or update ..
Do a search on the forum for pokemon. All the pokemon advance games are the same. They will not play unless they are patched, or unless you change your save settings in VBA (to flash and 128k). If people would learn to look before they post, this board wouldn't be plagued with 6,437,895.5 posts all complaining of the exact same problem.
