ROMs "not loading" in SGB mode.

I played through a good portion of Pokemon Red before I realized I wasn't getting any achievements, and played some of Snoopy Magic Show with the same issue. I even searched the CR32 Checksums listed in the forum pages, and downloaded those ROMs, still to no avail. Weirdly enough, the Pokemon Strike ROM hack does work.

When I open the emulator, the prompt pops up showing me that I logged in, but when I boot the ROM, and click on Open this Game's Page, it gives me a pop-up saying "ERROR! No ROM Loaded". After trying to test the Oracle Zelda games and failing due to it trying to run the game in SGB hardware. Once I realized this, I tried running the ROMs in GBA mode, and the achievements loaded just fine.

Not sure if this is something that has been known for a while or not, but I didn't come across any information involving it, so I thought I would post about it for anyone else who might have this issue as well.
