What is an UPS file?

An .UPS file is a VisualBoyAdvance UPS Patch file.

UPS patches, with the ".UPS" extension, are employed to make changes to a game's original ROM. Emulation enthusiasts commonly utilize these patches to repair bugs, refine graphics, and include new components in classic games.

To apply a ".UPS" file, you will need VisualBoyAdvance, which is an emulator for the Game Boy Advance. Once downloaded, the original ROM of the game can be patched with the ".UPS" patch file. This modified version can then be run on the emulator.

It is essential to understand that not all ".UPS" files will work with every game. Before using a ".UPS" file, make sure it is meant for the ROM you wish to modify. Moreover, some patches might bring about problems with compatibility or glitches, so be aware when utilizing them.
