Pokémon Red/Blue (GB)

Support

You can follow the general setup guide at https://crowdcontrol.live/setup for extra help with the Twitch Extension, the Crowd Control Desktop Client and other options.

We suggest using the One Click Setup to install Bizhawk, which is found in the Crowd Control Desktop Client. Bizhawk 2.8 is required.

If you have any questions or need help with this setup, please head over to our discord, forum or email us for additional support!

Version Support

  • We support he USA Version of Pokemon Red and Blue.
  • We do not support any randomizer or mods at this time.

If the application is unable to use your ROM it will let you know. Also to ensure the game is working, you should see “C.C. Edition” on the title screen of the game!

Gameplay Note

We updated the behavior of the Pokemon Mart, instead of just getting Oak’s Parcel, you now also get the Pokedex here. This solves the issue with not being able to get past the old man. You do not need to deliver the parcel to Oak.

Bizhawk Support

Before you are able to play any Game Boy game with Bizhawk, you will need to get a legally obtained backup of your Game Boy’s BIOS. Import the GB BIOS, Config > Firmwares. Find GB, right click and Set Custom . This will allow you to browse to your BIOS. After selecting BIOS, choose the relaunch option or close out Bizhawk and reopen from the CC app.

An example of GB BIOS may look like:

Filename: bios_gb.bin, [BIOS] Nintendo Game Boy Boot ROM (World).gb, etc CRC32   : 59C8598E MD5     : 32FBBD84168D3482956EB3C5051637F5 SHA1    : 4ED31EC6B0B175BB109C0EB5FD3D193DA823339F 

Bizhawk GBC Support

Here are some tips for getting Pokémon Crystal set for GBC, which can look much better for streams. This will require the same ROM as before, but this time we need the GBC BIOS to continue and the GBC setting enabled.

Import the GBC BIOS, Config > Firmwares. Find GBC, right click and Set Custom. This will allow you to browse to your BIOS. After selecting BIOS, choose the relaunch option or close out Bizhawk and reopen from the CC app.

For reference, GBC BIOS may look like:

Filename: bios_gbc.bin CRC32   : 41884E46 MD5     : DBFCE9DB9DEAA2567F6A84FDE55F9680 SHA1    : 1293D68BF9643BC4F36954C1E80E38F39864528D 
  • After starting Pokemon, change the console from GB > Settings, and change Console Mode
