So I've been playing Pokémon recently, and I was able to get Platinum working with my Emerald playthrough to transfer various Pokémon to Pal Park. Everything works perfectly and completely as expected there. However, when I do the exact same setup with my Fire Red playthrough, Platinum doesn't recognize it. I have the ROM and the save file in the exact same place as the Emerald ROM and save file, I've beaten the game and unlocked everything (so it's not a matter of me having to do something in FIre Red first), so I have no idea why this isn't working. My only guess right now is the ROM is "version 1.1", so should I try to find a ROM of 1.0?

I've successfully set up linking between Fire Red and Emerald with mGBA, so for Pal Park purposes I can just trade any Pokémon to Emerald first, but there are other in-game features like dual-slot mode that I need Fire Red specifically for. Has anyone run into this issue?

EDIT: I know that the DS itself sees the ROM, because on the boot screen it says "Start GBA game." instead of "There is no Game Pak inserted."

EDIT EDIT: I figured it out! Turns out I'm a moron and was dragging the GBA saves to the wrong folder. For anyone else having this issue, make sure you're putting the GBA saves in the folder with your DS saves.
