Looks like the patch author didn't state what country the rom is from... Yay.

Let's assume it's the u.s. edition.

Tivo6, just use LunarIPS to patch the U.S. version of Pokemon Ruby.

Now a note from Moderator I.S.T. rather than Helpful Member I.S.T.: Don't report posts to get more attention. All it does is make mods mad. You don't want that.

Finally, we have a Newcomers Board. Use it in the future for any questions unrelated to this. If it's related t othis, use this topic.

You should be fine using LunarIPS and the U.S. Pokemon Ruby, though.

Almost always with Pokemon hacks it's the US release.  Unless it's in a different language (and this usually applies to FireRed or Emerald anyway so I can't be sure on this), the community tries to stick with one particular version when possible because the games always come in twos/threes (with annoying hexcode differences to match).

EDIT: Can confirm US version is needed.  Proof is in the original posting: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=54546

Considering this is a somewhat older one, if you're still experiencing trouble it might be time to find another dump.  Some older Ruby hacks will use this extremely old and sometimes rare dump, but nothing else will work with these patches.  It's weird.
