In Pokemon Leaf Green, if you fast forward, for what seems like a random amount of time, then it crashes. The emulator or something might just be overloaded bc of the fast forwarding, but I wouldn't know.

Duplicate of #2137 (which got deleted, so you'll find more info in #2138).

it isnt tho
this isnt about the cpu, its about fast fowarding causing crashes
if you are having the same problem as me, i found a solution:
just set the fast fowarding speed cap to 5x
Which you go to:
Tools -> Settings -> Emulation, and after that it's at the top and check off "Unbounded" and put the speed cap at 5x, which is the default, you can try more but idk about it.

You...didn't read enough of the replies. Turn off sync to video.

Alright, try downloading a development build from the website and let me know if it's fixed in that. I'm going to be releasing 0.9.2 soon which has some fixes that are currently only available in the development builds.

it might be caused by switching off of fast forward and moving at the same time

Does it crash the emulator or just hang it? They're different and have different meanings from a development point of view.

well, technically it freezes the game, and you can use the emulator, but once you select an option on the menu, it stops working and you have to end the process in task manager

Ok, that's a hang. It's probably deadlocking for some reason. So to confirm you were able to make it hang in the development build?

ok it seems to just happen randomly, and the previous hypothesis mightve been wrong, since it doesnt happen consistently

your issue sounds like something i had pretty recently as well but with Pokemon Emerald instead of LeafGreen, maybe test this with other games and see if its not just an issue with the Gen 3 Pokemon games?

It's almost certainly every game.

Can you try downloading 7061 or newer (if applicable) from this page to see if it's fixed now? https://mgba.io/builds/1/

i couldn't recreate it after 30 minutes, so it should be fixed

Perfect, thanks. I wasn't able to reproduce it myself but I was able to get it to hang when exiting if I'd been fast forwarding for too long. FIxed in d202cdd.
