Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire (Cartridge Rumble Patch)

Hack of Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire


Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire is one of the few games that rumble the Game Cube controller when played through a Game Boy Player. This patch unlocks the rumble option on GBA and adds cartridge rumble. The original Game Boy Player rumble events and durations are used to trigger the rumble motor in any rumble flash cart such as:

  • insideGadgets’ 32MB 256Kbit FRAM Rumble cartridge
  • EZ-FLASH OMEGA Definitive Edition

The cart itself will rumble when played on GBA but not when inserted in a Game Boy Player. That’s how Drill Dozer works, which is the only game that officially supports both Game Boy Player and cartridge rumble.

Don’t forget to enable the rumble feature in the options menu.
