Good news everybody, I asked my friend who gave me the Pokemon game about the F.E. GBA problems... turned out she had sent me a file extension as well and I didn't realise it!
Although I already knew this, it has come to my attention once again that I am just mentally retarded with computers. So my wonderful buddy [ Thanks Anna, I <3 You~ ! ] had to walk me through using it for the first little while.
After sorting out a few problems with controls [ I'm not used to playing pokemon on my laptop ] I'm on my Pokemon journey and loving it <3
I am playing Pokemon Sapphire, btw.
