OK WELL
Here's the code/cheat thing for the black screen after Oak:
Pokemon HeartGold (U) black screen fix code:
020DD9E4 E1A00000
020D3820 E1A00000

Pokemon Soul Silver (U) black screen fix code:
020DE16C E1A00000
020D3FA8 E1A00000

TO ANOTHER THING
When I click to play my file, the ROM crashes. =/ I was thinking maybe it was my method of saving.. but idk
HOW I SAVE: Ok. So I'm saving. And it's saving. And my name is Bichu. You know how it's says "Bichu saved the game." when you're done saving? I close the emulator when it starts saying that, and by the time I close it, it usually got as far as "Bichu sav" AND THAT IS HOW I SAVE
and I close the window and start the ROM again and I'm where I saved at. =D idk if that'll help any of you or save you. If something happens don't blame me OTL

When playing the Heart Gold (U) rom on my R4DS card, this makes my game go whitescreen before it even starts O_o.

I haven't had a problem with oak but every 15 minutes or so it either freezes or stays on black with the music still going.
Has there been a fix for that on the U rom yet?

How many badges you got? You won't get past continue if you have 3-4 badges. This has happened to a few. (Myself included.) The only alternative I've got is just to play the rest out on Desmume. That's what I'm doing.

Just saying, but both me and my bro were able to go past the 5th gym so far with NO crashes on no$gba.

There was a post on the thread which gave information on how to remove the freezing (or at least, drastically reduce the freezing).

You have to unpack the ROM and remove a file called "guru2.narc".

i did the thing with the decrypting of the rom, but now i cant figure out how to get the no black screen code to work. after i choose which game i want, it stops at the black screen like it did before...

Destiny.
March 22nd, 2010, 09:19 PM
mandycat- after encryption of rom (assuming you have No$gba 2.6a):
Go to Emulation Setup and change the Reset/Startup point to GBA BIOS (Nintendo logo)
Now, go Options and Save the options options.
Close the Emulator (Do not reset the cartridge!).
Now open the Emulator and Rom, load it like a real cartridge. No black screen.

Hi, I'm trying to play HG on no$gba 2.6a but I keep getting the black screen after I put my name. I have the black screen fix code inputed and turned on but it's still not working, anyone know what's wrong?
I tried desmume 0.9.5 x86 and it doesn't have the black screen, but the link that Destiny put up says that desmume x86 has been reported to crash often so I don't want to use it (plus it's slower than no$gba)

Hi,can you help me?

I fixed the black screen problem via AR code,and my game is freezing but it´s no problem because I´m saving my game as much as I can....

But when my Pidgey grew to lvl 13,my rom crashed and when I loaded the game,he was at level 10 which is crazy because I saved game when he was at 12....any solutions? :)

NO$GBA right? You gotta save, then close it, then start it back up.

I have been playing Pokemon Heart Gold on my computer using No$gba 2.6, but now I have an Acekard 2i and want to put my Heart Gold .sav file on my Acekard. I found the Shuny Save Game converter and I converted the file. When I put the newly converted file on my Acekard it acted like the save file wasn't there and proceeded to start a new game. I don't want to lose my save data that I started on my No$gba. What am I missing a step?

Note: Both the .sav and the .nds are named exactly the same thing except for the extension. Both the .sav file and the .nds file are in the same folder.

This is what it looks like on the website when I am converting it.

Save Games to convert: "Path to the file"
Source Format: No$GBA (.sav)
Target Format: Acekard 2 | CycloDS | EDGE | M3 Simply....and the list goes on....

I seems like I am doing everything right, but it just won't work. Thanks for your help.

maybe I'm checking the wrong box? I have "action reply DS" checked and I'm using no$gba 2.6a

Destiny.
March 24th, 2010, 09:20 PM
moon_light- Make sure you 'tick' the box every time you load the emulator because No$gba 2.6a doesn't load cheats automatically.
Are you using the Japanese version (with english patch) or the actual USA version?

yes I tick the box as soon as I open it, I even tried enabling the code first and then restarting the rom but it still doesnt work
I'm using the actual USA version

Does anyone know how to get a way to fast foward a SS ROM using DesMume?
I'm told that you can't fast forward on desmume, that's the bad thing about it
otherwise it seems to work better than no$gba since there are fewer crashes

Hey, guys i'm a ROM hacker for HG (check the link in my sig...), but i need to beat the game. On my R4 I got to the 4th gym and, after beating it, the game became horribly unplayable, and it would crash every few SECONDS!!! is there a patch for r4 original (not fake) or M3 ds Real? because My friend also has a m3, and i might be able to borrow it...
thanks in advance for any help Fellow Videogamers!!!

I have 4 badges!!! So far, I've made it 2 the lighthouse with no crashes!!!
I do save often on No$GBA with black screen cheat and Firmware.bin in the No$GBA folder.
This raises the event counter to 66 before a crash!
Has this worked for anyone else?!

everyone seems to be having problems, I don't think there's a non crashing rom (yet) but I hope there will be soon

how did you get pass the black screen? the black screen cheat isn't working for me no matter what I do, and I enable the cheat right after I open the rom

Use the SoulSilver cheat! That cheat is for BOTH US versions.
The HeartGold cheat is for Japan!

Find Firmware.bin and put in your No$GBA folder. Game will crash eventually but will take alot of events (around 66 i believe which is WAY better than 32=0 badges, 24=1 badge, 16=2 badges, 3= 3 badges, not functional after the 4th badge results that we've been getting) so still save often! I have 7 badges and i'm about to enter the Ice Cave!!!

The game is definitely playable and enjoyable!

thanks a lot, I finally got over the black screen :D
the rom crashed the two times I tried to play the game though
the first time all the buttons on the menu suddenly disappeared and I couldn't do anything except completely restart the game, and the second time a window called "no$gba fatal" popped up that said: requires BIOS ROM-image to execute undef opcode exceptions (I dont know what that means)
I'm going to try to find that fireware.bin file you were talking about and see if it will solve the crashing problem

[edit]
by the way, am I supposed to keep the black screen code enabled the entire time I play or can I turn if off after it works? and how often do you save?
also, did you change any of your no$gba settings after adding the firmware.bin file? I read somewhere that you need to select GBA BIOS (Nintndo logo) under Reset/Startup Entrypoint

I changed NO SETTINGS!!! Do not select GBA BIOS!!! Thats not necessary and I don't even think it works!!! Use START CARTRIDGE DIRECTLY!!!

I don't turn the code back off but i've heard of people that do and I don't think it really matters!

I really haven't kept track of how much I save! Thinking back, I save before and after important things!(Rocket leaders, Gym leaders, Lugia, etc...) I do know that I can walk a whole route and battle everybody w/o saving! WHEN YOU SAVE, remember to CLOSE NO$GBA AND OPEN IT BACK UP AFTERWARDS!!! No$GBA does not save to the hard drive until when it is closed by you! If it crashes, and you saved without closing No$GBA directly afterwards you wont start at your last save point!

yeah, I know about closing no$gba after saving. I learned that the hard way when my platinum crashed and I lost my save file xD

the firmware.bin file works and heartgold seems to be working fine now, so thanks a whole bunch for your help! :D
hopefully the rom won't crash later on...

WARNING!!! SPOILER AHEAD!!!

I'm in Vermillion city! The only problems I have is sometimes the sprites glitch out! Especially in Clair's gym! However I messed around inside the S.S. Aqua for a long time W/O saving and when I got off the game froze when Suicune appeared and Enisune walked up! The rom DID NOT CRASH! The game made the Suicune cry, Enisune walked up and then instead of the Suicune running away, the game stopped responding with the Suicune sprite still kinda wiggling around!!! I restarted no$GBA and this didn't happen a second time! Has something similar happened to anyone during a cutscene?!

where can i get the firmware bin file, and how do i install?
just google it and you'll find download links for it
put it in the same folder as no$gba.exe (assuming you're using no$gba)
not sure about other emulators but I think you would just put it in the same folder as the emulator program

[edit]
by the way, does anyone know how I can get both chikorita and cyndaquil? since you can't trade with emulators I don't know what I can do to get both starters, and I've never used pokesav before
also, I restarted my HG to try to get a female chikorita and now when I leave the house my character turns into a black square. The same goes for Ethan and his maril when you first see them :(

Thats the sprite glitch out thing I was talking about! The game never got stuck like this for me. You can ignore this unless it really wierds you out like it did with me! Just walk in a door and walk out or go up and down the steps! You may have to do this multiple times to stop the sprites from glitching! It does this to me when I heal or use the PC in the pokecenter and I had this problem badly in sprout tower and clair's gym!

Also, Pokesav is a great program!!! You should really try it! I wish someone would make a Pokesav for the third generation!!!

EDIT: The Pokeathalon or whatever it is LAGS so horribly that is unplayable!!! Does anybody have a fix for this?!

I downloaded the US version of Heart Gold, but when you come back to the lab and then head out and are intercepted by Lyra to learn usage of pokeballs, the game sort of fails. Lyra comes to me and just stands there. Music keeps playing, and the animation on her Marill continues. Any solutions to this?

Using desmume 0.9.5 x86 if that helps.

You can't. The BIOS (or Firmware of the DS) is illegal, and you can't link to illegal material. Try an anti-freeze code, the game is horribly unstable without it unless you have the actual game.

hey, I gave my brother my files so he could play HG as well, but his game keeps crashing for some reason
I save and quit the emulator about every 30 min and it's fine for me, but his crashes every 10 min
does anyone have a solution to this? I dont even know why this is happening since we have the exact same files

also, is the pokelthon lagging for anyone? it's so laggy on mine that it's not playable, and I need to win a shiny stone to evolve my togetic =P

Using No$gba, and patched the Poke HeartGold Xenophobia version, added the cheat and opened up the .bak file but it still crashes in the same place which is in sprout tower. Should I not be using this .sav file?
PS - Also I am using the...well I guess you could say "pre patched/edited" version of the no$ zoomer as someone recommended it on the site which has the changes such as GBA Bios Nintendo Logo as the reset/startup entrypoint. Also the cheat - does it NEED to be RAW ticked?

Any suggestions on:
* If theres any settings I should change
* Is the Xenophobia version good, if not I have another one called "Panzervitch" dunno if thats better
* Should I create a fresh folder/sav with the emulator and rom patched?

Thanks sorry bout all the questions!

Play on Desmume. Usually when you get around 3-5 badges, the game will have a lot of time crashing. Sometimes when you get the 4th badge, you can't do anything past the Continue screen. The only help I can give is that you play on Desmume. It's slow, but very unlikely to crash like No$GBA.

Recently I have been encountering problems and manually solving them. I came into this thread to look around and noticed many people with similar problems to mine. Because of this, I have decided to type up a summary of the emulation problems I have come accross and how to solve them. That's why I have only just joined the forums. Anyway, here you go.

_________________________________________________________________________

Intro
Over the previous six months or so, many ROMs of new Pokemon games, Soul Silver and Heart Gold versions (remakes of 2nd generation GameBoy Colour game, Gold and Silver), have been released. Starting out in Japanese, being patched into English, and recently having completely English ROMs is excelent. However, there are bound to be problems with these kind of things.
Because many people are having problems with emulating these games, I have made this summary of how to fix many problems I have come accross whilst playing this game so far. All of these I have come accross in the emulator: No$GBA. Here is how to fix these problems. All directions are in said emulator.

1. The Saved Data Cannot be Accessed
When you load the ROM for the first time, the emulator may come up with a screen saying something about being unable to access the save data, and having to reboot your DS. Well, this does not work, however, there is a simple solution to this. First, go to Options >> Emulation Settings. Under NDS Cartridge Backup Settings, choose FLASH512KBYTES. Click OK, then go to Options >> Save settings. Finally go to File >> Reset Cartridge.

2. Black Screen of Death
The common error in the ROMs of these games is the so called Black Screen of Death. This will happen when you finish creating or select a file. You will hear the sound/music but the screen of your emulator will be completely black. To fix this, you need to enable an Action Replay code that fixes the bug. Go to Utility >> Cheats. Then in the first box put this code:
020DE16C E1A00000
020D3FA8 E1A00000
In the second box type in a memorable name for the code, such as Black Screen Fix. Finally, select the option at the bottom saying that it is an Action Replay code. You will need to activate this code every time you play.

3. The ROM Image has Crashed
Occasionally, you will get a pop-up saying The ROM Image has Crashed and the emulator will close itself. You will find that when you reload the ROM, you are not at the last save point. The emulator will have wiped the entire previous sesdion in order to prevent some kind of (unexistant?) bug. This can really piss you off, especially if you'd been constantly saving for the last half our in order to prevent that kind of thing happening/having much impact.
Now this is an unstoppable problem, however, it is preventable. Before it crashes, most of the time, there will be a sign that something is wrong. For me, common signs have been the icons on the touchscreen menu dissapearing, and when walking through tall grass you appear to be walking above it, rather than through it (no movement of the grass, and you can see your feet). If you get a sign like this, CLOSE YOUR EMULATOR! It will mean you will be at your last lave point, but it's not as bad as losing your entire session.

4. Evil Whitney!
A problem I have recently come accross is problems with the ROM image constantly crashing after I defeated Whitney. Other people have said about this as well. I did some experimenting and this is what I managed to work out. Once you have defeated the third gym leader, Whitney (located in Goldenrod City), this will start to happen. When ever you accept any item off of anyone, be it a pokemon, flowerist, passer by, shop keeper, the game will go all glitchy, but you won't notice it. The next time you save, you will see. A couple of seconds after the save is completed, the ROM image will crash. This also occurs when you save after using a TM/HM (and possibly after exchanging phone numbers, though I'm not sure. But probably not worth the risk). To prevent this, you must close the emulator as soon as the saving is completed, before the ROM image has a chance to crash. An alternative option is to reset the cartidge, but it is safer to close it. One you reload it, you should not encounter this problem again, until you accept another item, use a TM, etc.

5. GBA BIOS
Never, ever change the Reset/Startup Entrypoint to GBA BIOS. If you do this and save the options, you've screwed up. Or at least, you will think you have when you realize that every time you load the ROM, the ROM image crashes. However, there is a way around this, and you do not need to reinstall the emulator. You can manually reset the settings without even using the emulator. Go to the folder or location where your NO$GBA emulator is. It should have thrown five pieces of junk into the same location. BATTERY, SLOT, etc. Find the on that is only named NO$GBA, and the icom is a notebook with bits and bobs and cogs or whatever surrounding it. Hover over it and it should say something about Configuration Settings, and be approximately 2KBs large. Delete this file, or move it to a different location. When you load the emulator, it will be unable to locate the settings, and replace them with the default ones. Change them as neccissary, and never make that same miststake again.

6. Freezing on Knockout
Quite often I noticed that when I knocked out an enemy, the game just stopped and did absolutely nothing, but when I closed and reopened the emulator. After a while, I realized that without the sound enabled this would always happen. To fix this easilly, just right click on the emulator screen and click sound. You should hear the target make its cry, then faint.

_________________________________________________________________________

That's all I've come accross so far. I'll add any more I find or add any needed detail. Mail me if you want something to be added.

Thanks

If you get a sign like this, CLOSE YOUR EMULATOR! It will mean you will be at your last lave point, but it's not as bad as losing your entire session.

for crashes and save losses what I do is save constantly and quit the emulator (before it crashes, which means once every 20 min or so) so that the sav file in the battery folder gets updated with the latest save point, then I copy that sav file somewhere as a backup. If my rom crashes I just copy my backup sav file back and replace the original one in the battery folder


here are some other problems I've had while playing:
- menu buttons disappear and the game freezes
- game freezes when using an HM move
- spinning pokeballs during a battle
- sprite glitches (can be solved easily by walking through a door though)


generally, saving often and backing up my sav file has been working really well for me. I haven't really had any problems besides the ones listed above. In my previous post I mentioned how my brother's game kept crashing, and we found out that he just wasn't saving and closing the emulator often enough.
Right now I'm on my way to the elite 4 :D

This only apply to people who don't have the BIOS and Firmware files, as well as having their ROMs decrypted in the first place. So yeah, I always use the GBA BIOS, making sure the ROMs I play are encrypted.

If it is crashing every time you open it, then delete the file called No$GBA with a logo as a notebook with some bits and bobs around it. It should be in the same location as the emulator.

Mine crashes a bout once every 15-25 mins. When I am walking through a door. So I just save before now :/JUst about to battle Faulkner. Fowller (lvl 8) (Hoothoot) Berbattov (lvl8) (Zubat) Aqualani (lvl8) (Wooper) Nghost (lvl8) (Ghastly) and Burnabau (lvl12) (Cyndaquil).

I have tried to catch pokemon I dont usually get:-
eg. In Heart Gold (J) I got Mareep, Pidgey, Geodude, Cyndaquil, Totodile and Red.G.
Now I am going to have Ghastly (which I often get), Wooper (1st time), Zubat (2nd time), Hoothoot (1st) Cyndaquil (1000th :P) and Chikorita hopefully.

The game is awfully crashy... but hopefully a patch will come out which avoids all this. I am praying that I can carry on after the 4th Gym. (yn)

people, stop whining about crashing, just get yourself No$Gba 2.6a and Firmware.bin file. I've just beaten Red and I don't have major problems (besides freezing once about 30 minutes, and only 1 crash in entire game). Just save every 15 minutes and close your emulator once every hour. If you want to increase your chances, use additionally this patch on your rom:

gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=217811

or even use the translation patch which translates 99% of text in japanese rom:

gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=216406


Patch which will fix 100% anti-piracy might not be ever created - only emulator users and some older flashcart users still have problems - majority of people dont have them now, so almost no one is working on it now.

wait, so if we do have the bios and firmware, we're supposed to change the setting to gba bios?

READ THIS CAREFULLY
I have found a working patch and encryption for Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver the US version provided you already have a clean and unpatched ROM. Follow the instructions I have provided in the various text files precisely and you'll get a working unfreezing copy of HGSS. Everything except the Rom and Emulator is included. I played my fix for 2 hours without a single crash.

Includes
- Rudolph's Patch
- A reliable Encrypter
- Certain files you'll find useful if you can't seem to play the game or find them

Download the fix here (it is in .zip format, so you can unzip it using Windows):
http://www.mediafire.com/?aozymwjmh53

To clarify, this works for NO$GBA 2.6a Not sure about DesMuMe

I have tested this fix using a copy of SoulSilver
I beat 46 trainers, 2 gym leaders (Morty and Whitney) fought about 20 wild Pokemon battles, walked through about 50 doors without saving a single time. I didn't get a single crash. I have 4 Gym Badges and have a total play time of 9 hours and 43 minutes. (oh yeah, also played the Bug Catching contest, though I lost, that one's really good when it doesn't freeze up :3)

Why this should work
1) Rudolph's patch fixes everything EXCEPT THE BLACKSCREEN.

2) Because the Blackscreen is caused by Nintendo's anti-piracy detecting that we are running a rom on an emulator, and NOT an actual DS. This is why Rudolph's patch ON ITS OWN works for Flashcarts but not no$gba. So then I put in the BIOS, encrypt the ROM and run the rom from Nintendo Logo which then fools the Rom into thinking that it's an actual DS, hence bypassing Blackscreen.

3) Because Blackscreen AR codes cause random freezes this is why I have to encrypt the ROM in order to bypass Blackscreen, instead of using the codes.

April 11th, 2010, 03:58 AM
Rudolph's patch completely eradicated freezes for all the Flashcarts.

Only for flashcarts as I said before. No$gba users still will have problems

I finally figured out that the anti-black screen AR codes caused random crashes on the Emulators, though Rudolph's patch completely eradicated freezes for all the Flashcarts. Therefore, I avoided using those cheats through the use of encryption.

I have tested this fix

Micadi- This is an altered the fix is for no$gba 2.6a. I included an encrypter to make it work for no$.

This fix should work because:
1) Rudolph's patch fixes everything EXCEPT THE BLACKSCREEN.

2) Because the Blackscreen is caused by Nintendo's anti-piracy detecting that we are running a rom on an emulator, and NOT an actual DS. This is why Rudolph's patch ON ITS OWN works for Flashcarts but not no$gba. So then I put in the BIOS, encrypt the ROM and run the rom from Nintendo Logo which then fools the Rom into thinking that it's an actual DS, hence bypassing Blackscreen.

3) Because Blackscreen AR codes cause random freezes this is why I have to encrypt the ROM in order to bypass Blackscreen, instead of using the codes.

---------------------
Mason69- The patch was made by someone else, namely Rudolph, and I found it off GBAtemp. I used the reasoning above and my experience of the Japanese Rom told me that Encryption bypassed the Blackscreen. So then because I knew that AR codes caused freezes I encrypted instead
And what is the precise error message from no$gba 2.6a displayed on your screen and are you running Windows? (screenshot if you can :/)

and. DO NOT EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER RESET THE EMULATOR, UNLESS YOU WANT THE EMULATOR AND ROM TO CRASH

Firstly in answer to your problem. Are you sure you've done the following?
1) You must have encrypted the ROM (if it's not successfully encrypted it WILL CRASH)
2) Done this? (You must have encrypted first to do this without crashing)

Uchicha. its THOSE AR CODES THAT ARE CAUSING THE random FREEZING -.-
While they prevent Blackscreen (when loading rom) they freeze the game at random points. That's why I recommended encryption, because it prevents the freezing rather than causing it. If you had those codes enabled the entire time, that's why it froze for you, but it hasn't frozen for me yet and I've played for nine hours.

This is a question that has probably been asked a thousand times so I'm sorry if it has but........

I use no$gba. I got the dark screen fixed up with the cheat but sometimes the rom will freeze or get a image rom has crashed message. Is there a way to stop this??? When I re load the rom it goes back to where I had the game saved when I first opened the rom and it doesn't record other saved data between opening the rom and when it crashes

I can save with no Problem but when I open the .nds file and select my game save, the screen goes black.

However if I enable the cheat that stops the black screen after when you first start the game up and talk to Prof. Oak the games works okay.

The game also freezes whenever I reduce a Pokemon's HP to 0, I can run from a battle with no problem but if I fight it the game freezes.

Any help?

I am using NO$GBA 2.6.

No. It will not. There is an IR emitter in the actual game cart, and there isn't one in any mass-produced (or any, for that matter) flash card of any kind. You need a legit version of the game to use it.

April 20th, 2010, 10:02 PM
If anyone is using R4 and the rom is freezing there is a rom that works perfectly on my R4.

This rom stops the continual freezing once you get past the 3rd gym

You'll need a torrent down loader btw.

Requests permission to post link to the rom (ts worth a shot)

otherwise Google 'Pokemon Soulsilver (USA) Working on ALL Cards' and click the link from The pirate bay.

Its 100% virus free so dont worry.

If i have broken any rules please delete this post :)

To all of the people with battle problems. Turn the sound option on in the emulation setup otherwise the game will crash when the pokèmon cries as it faints.

Hope I helped =]

I have the same problem as the two users above. The game runs nicely until I get into the battle. If I run it doesn't get frozen, but If I knockout a wild Pokemon or in trainer battle the screen freezes and it doesn't continue. It just...stops.

If anyone could help, I would really appreiate it. I have no DS and the emulator is the only way to play this kind of game in my country :(

Try turning on sound or the fainting cry will crash.. =]

May 24th, 2010, 12:20 AM
@Destiny..

i followed all of your instructions, however when i attempt to load the new rom, it says " unidentified op code-with no debug vector defined" and then no$gba crashes. do you kno why this did not work for me.

i used Xenophobia (U) as my clean unpatched rom. is this rite or do i need to used a different one.

also, if i am part way through a soul silver game, and have to load a different soul silver rom (such as this patched and encrypted rom) can i continue from my original SS game?



EDIT: ok well i managed to fix the problem. when using the encrypter, a box popped up half way through encrypting saying that it needed to open an unknown file, and whether i wanted to surf the web for a program, or select a program (im sure people are familiar with this). this was because i have windows 7. therefore i repatched a clean ROM, and went into the properties of the encrypter. i ticked it to run in compatability mode with windows XP service pack 3, as well as run as administator. i then ran the encrypter and it all worked fine.

i also figured out how to revert back to my old save by simply changing the name of the file. so for people out there with windows 7, just a heads up that a few things need to be changed.

Sparda_87- It should.
uchiha_madara15 - Amount of time/events after freeze, any Action Replay codes being used? Also, are you using HeartGold or SoulSilver? Version of Windows used (e.g. XP/Vista)? Emulator sound enabled?

ok sorry to bother you agian, your patched worked, no black screen AR code needed and no freezing thus far. i was just wondering, do i still need to exit and restart no$gba everytime i save?

also, if i were using other AR codes such as the all wild pokemon are shiny code, do i need to turn these codes off when saving, and then turn them back on, or can they be left on?

I'm using DeSmuME 0.9.6 x64 and running a HG ROM that's already been patched.
I've already got 7 badges and have been playing using save states on the emulator.
After my 7th badge, I realized that I would soon need to save for the Elite 4, so I tried to save using the in-game save, only to freeze up the every time I tried.

The little spinning dot in the dialogue box's corner you get when you save spins a different distance (i.e. 30 degrees, half a rotation, one full rotation, etc) when I change Save Types to different options (EEPROM, FLASH, and FRAM) but I can never save the game.

Is there a fix for this for DeSmuME? I really don't want to start over, as I've come pretty far into the game already.

The AR code for the anti-freeze is already activated and does not seem to help with the in-game save.


Please help!

P.S. I just realized that when I load the ROM, I just get a blank white screen until I load a saved state.

faospark
May 27th, 2010, 04:16 AM
try this setting for DeSmume
DeSmuMe 0.9.6 x86 (this one is the stable release but this setting can also be applied to your DeSmuMe, but my advice is to get this one)
- on the Config Tab you have to adjust certain things to adjust :
- Config>3d setting: Renderer change it to SoftRasterizer, and tick the enable edge marking and last everything else is unticked
- Config>Emulation Setting: just tick enable bus level timing everything else is unticked
- Config> Frame Skip= 3
-Config> DirectDraw SW
-Config> Hot Key Config: change it to your needs
- change the save to auto

next all of your cheats must be disabled before opening the rom activate them once you have loaded your game. that should do it

Can you play SS on NO$GBA 2.6a without any freezing?
nope you can actually tweak it using AR codes and even if you use those codes give the game less almost an hour of game play and it will crash. I suggest switch to DeSmuMe 0.9.6

Exiting No$ is the only way to write the save file, unfortunately. It's more of a safeguard than anything. Sorry about the late reply, it's been almost a month since I last logged on. As for Shiny codes, they could probably be left on. It's mainly just touch and go. I haven't had any problems with walkthrough wall codes, or that. I create my shinies using Pokesav (HGSS) but to use it with your No$ save file you either need to convert your .sav using http://www.emuboards.com/invision/index.php?showtopic=24627

(but it might not work for Windows 7) or set the No$ config file to SAV/SNA File Format == Raw

Figured I'll share my experiences with HGSS Emulation.

I'm using no$gba 2.6a - HGSS Fixed. Google that and find it yourself.
And I use untouched roms.
I don't use no$zoomer, I use a plugin called myZoom.
Default settings works for me.
I turn the sound to 10khz and emulation speed to Unlimited MHz Disaster 10% to speed up.
With these settings, I get ~250% speed overworld, faster in menus/battles/I think everything else on i7-920.
I could get 150% overworld with my previous C2D T7300 laptop. For reference.

I use the AR codes to fix the black screen problem, google them.

I press F12 to reload every 15 minutes after I save, so that the game doesn't freeze.

Most people may know this, but, there is a new update to the unofficial firmware called Wood R4. Their new firmware was released quite recently, I think in June or so. Whilst the official R4 website's newest update (1.18) was released in 2008.

One were I defeated bell sprout tower. I went outside and could only go to the end of the bridge, then everything was black. I tried going back in the tower but the game froze at the door. Next I just beat the 1st gym leader, then got the egg at the pokemart.
When I left the pokemart it just froze my character but the sign was still moving.
Any help on this? Or any other roms that work fully?
Let me know, and thank you.

When I open the game it tells me that something about saving could not be accessed and to turn off the DS and remove the cartridge. I've tried resetting, reloading the cartridge, but so far nothing has worked. I've tried changing it to the "Nintendo Logo" setting and resetting, but that just tells me that Rom Image has Crashed.

EDIT: I'm using No$GBA 2.6, by the way.

As I realize that this question is asked a number of times,but i've looked around and found barely any results. I just would like to know if there's a prepatched rom for heartgold that will run on no$gba with no problems. by teh looks of it so far no luck at all...:/ I don't necessarily want to have it USA version, but I'd like to be able to read things in english

I actually tried to play using desume a number of times but that usually crashes on me so I play only the no$gba...not to mention neither of the two seem to be updated anymore anyways.

September 2nd, 2010, 05:59 PM
It should run fine on a computer with good speed (unlike mine). You can also boost the speed by going into emulation settings, and do the speed with a *2 in it.
As for putting the code up, that's not allowed.

This only happens on Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver. This is why you have to save often, like what Ooka said. You might also want to try and find an Anti-Piracy patch to fix the problem once and for all, like what Blazichu said.

However, I'm pretty sure there is a way of bypassing the Anti Piracy without the patch or Action Replay code, that is if the developers of DeSmuME were able to do it. Just remember, with ROM Hacking... anything's possible. Nothing is impossible at all. ;)

EDIT: However, I know the crashing from the Anti-Piracy occurs in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, however you can prevent it from happening by changing the 3D settings often.

Using no$GBA, I found out (then found out that it was already known) that if I save and close the emulator really quickly, it didn't crash. It worked for some time.

But now, when I load the rom, and it gets to the main screen, once I click "Start" (I think it's only then, because I tried the pokewalker screen and it worked) it has the FATAL CRASH.

Any known remedy for this?

Do it give some HG/SS hacks? I want to have a challenge like Pokémon Bloody Platinum. So it can be a hack, who are the Pokémon stronger and other sets with other Trainer-strategies. And one inportant thing is, that you can catch all 493 Pokémon.

Hi there! A few months ago I've played Pokemon hg, I've played in desmume (nice emu), and it went good, a few errors, like freeze, stuck, characters disapered etc. but in the end, after i defeated the elite four and the champ, i don't went to the other region, and the game stopped so i don't finished it.

I'll ask you to give me your opinion, tell me your errors and advise me.

tell me your emu please.

this time i would like to play ss, I would like too to play it 100% english (i'm no good at Japanese :P).

send me an email: [email protected]

If there is some patch to fix this problem tell me XD. I would like to play on desmume, (unless it worked for you another, but the save state is very useful...)

OK, well there's two options for this, either search Google for the US version of Pokémon Soul Silver or use Magius's English patch for a Japanese Pokémon Soul Silver, which is found in this (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=194342) thread. However, you might need to also download a patch that removes the coding in which slows down the Emulator 'till it freezes, which also found in that thread.

I am using NO$Gba, I thought I posted that?!?!

I see, I'm sorry... I don't think I saw that post, but anyways...

Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver cannot run properly on No$GBA, due to a coding that the emulator cannot read properly, which means it will easily freeze. The DS emulator DeSmuME will work better with HeartGold and SoulSilver, but still will freeze after like... 30 minutes. This is why you'd have to save often in the game before it freezes again.

However, there is a patch to fixing that problem, but I do reckon that the emulators really do need to have support for reading the codings in the games that is only supported with a Nintendo DS. However I do see that Nintendo has been doing alot of things to use codings that are not supported by an emulator yet. This is pretty much why people think it's an "Anti-Piracy" thing, but I think it's actually a coding that is not supported by an emulator or flash card yet.

hey guys um sorry if this redundant if somebody already posted these problems, my pc is being !#$%%^%$# so it won't let me do much, i can't look at the other pages, i can barely even get to this spot to post this so if it gets up, well wow it made. Anyways, I've had these problems on No$gba with both roms, hg and ss, after the intro it goes to a black screen and one time i got a code (then a few days later my pc crashed and i lost everything, that code included), and after i got a little ways, it just froze and then it wouldn't work anymore. I couldn't even open the rom/emulator together. On Desmume, it would go up until about violet city and then i ran into a shiny, was it a weedle? (lucky me) and then midway through the battle it just froze and the same thing happened, it wouldn't open any more. So um some help?

People,

all you have to do its to put this in No$Gba cheats(utility/cheats) and put 020DE16C E1A00000
020D3FA8 E1A00000 this code and then put action replay ds, but that's for Heart Gold.


Now if the game crashes in the middle like me you have to save a lot of times and you have to have No$Gba_2.6a version and the rom that is ok(the one which i use) Pokemon HeartGold English By GoldndSilver7 Clean.


If you dont put the code that i mentioned before in the cheats you cant play

And thats for all dont put GBA BIOS(NINTENDO LOGO) in emulation setup because it will crash the emulator

ANSWER TO FREEZING AND BLACK SCREEN.

Allright, having browsed this thread in search for an answer to the freezing problem, I thought I would let you people know how I fixed the problem.

- Use NO$GBA and use NO$ZOOMER.
- The rom I use is xpa-phg.nds (google it if you haven't already got it)
- Download the ''nds-bios-and-firmware. (Google it, first result)
- Put all content in your map where your rom/no$gba/no$zoomer is located.
- extract eNDrypts_advanced_v1.2.. and run eNDrypts_advanced.exe
- Press"1", (if it asked you it can't find a program to open with, just press cancel and ignore.) just close it when it's finished.
- Run the game and under emulation options make sure ''Reset/Startup Entrypoint'' is put on GBA BIOS(Nintendo logo)
- Restart the game.
- Loading should look different if done correctly.


Now. Before I did this, the game would freeze, or rom would crash almost continuously.
After this method, the game has only frozen once after about 6 hours of playing. (in the bellsprout tower)
So I still use the save/close method every hour or so to be sure, (also because my computer has the tendency to shut down whenever it feels like)
You also don't need the cheat code for the black screen anymore.

If this has already been explained previously, my bad.
cheers.

ANSWER TO FREEZING AND BLACK SCREEN.

wall

I have done that, except that I didn't find the xpa-phg.nds. How to use NO$GBA with NO$ZOOMER?

Anyway, I get the game to start as a usual DS game, (where you choose with your pen, pictochat etc.) when I then click the game it says "ROm image has crashed"

SO I guess it's the rom's fault but when I try to download xpa-phg.nds it has no seeders..
Then I found it, but instead of it working, I can't even open the game. Worse than before.

I really want to play this game and I would be very happy if you would take yourself time to help me :)

I don't know if this was in HG/SS, but was the sound running? A similar thing occured in D/P/Pt where the game semi-froze as the sound was muted when the Pokemon were knocked out, kinda stopping the game proceeding.

Try unmuting the sound if you have muted it before.

Hi,

I wanted to know how to get some of the poke games working on the Nintendo DS emulator on the computer. All the other games are working like mario olympics and another pokemon perle but in french which is not as fun to play when you don't know the language.

The games that aren't working are soul silver and gold however, I see everything at the start when you setup like choosing your name and selecting either male or female and the sound fully works and its smooth no problem there, but once it gets to the game where you actually start I can hear the song but it stays pitch black on the screen? Exactly same thing happens on both soul silver and gold but the other games work fine? So I thought it had something to do with changing the settings somewhere?

Please can someone help me? Is it to do with patching it or some setiing on my computer or on the emulater I need to change?

Thanks

I know this is my first post, and for that i may be regarded as a leecher (Dunno what this forums views are on leeching, i've known some to be very strict on that front.) Anyway, time to cut the crap and get to the problem.

I have a HG ROM titled "Heartgold (retail) - LW" - Could be English or US.
My problem is this:
I have used an AR code to fix the black screen problem, and for the most part, my game has been relatively freeze free. Recently though, it's started freezing every 30 seconds or so (Just reached Route 31). In the past 8 attempts, i haven't managed to get past KO'ing a wild opponent (Haven't tried a trainer) and running from battle works fine.
If there is a fix it would be greatly appreciated (I did start looking through the thread, but nothing was working, then i tried searching 'battle freeze' which also gave no relevant results).
Since i am an utter n00b at using ROMs and No$GBA, an AR code would be most helpful. Failing that then i'll follow every instruction to the letter.
Massive thanks to anyone & everyone that can help in advance!
EDIT: My sound isn't muted.

I see everything at the start when you setup like choosing your name and selecting either male or female and the sound fully works and its smooth no problem there, but once it gets to the game where you actually start I can hear the song but it stays pitch black on the screen?
If you're using No$GBA, just go to - Utility > Cheats > Add New. Then copy & paste:
020DE16C E1A00000
020D3FA8 E1A00000

CAll it whatever you like, but make sure "Action replay DS" is checked. I haven't checked "RAW" and it works fine for me.
Every time you start, just go into Utility > Cheats & activate that.

I got heartgold to work by downloading winDS PRO (just google it) using the no$Zoomer option
when the game starts just go to others/ cheats
select add new
input the folowing:
020DE16C E1A00000
020D3FA8 E1A00000

Before you click okay, be sure that "Action Replay DS" is checked at the bottom of the window, and "RAW" is checkmarked underneath the okay and cancel buttons
then name it what you want and click okay

Double click the code title in the cheats window to enable it. To make sure it is enabled, look for a check mark next to it.

As long as this code is activated, you will not have any black screens while starting your game or loading a saved game. You can activate and deactiviate it whenever you want

the game will still freeze once in a while so save a lot

----------------------------------------------------
the only problem i still have with this metod is that i cant get the in game clock to work
if you want it to be a specifc time you have to to options and manualy set the date

if anyone finds a way to solve this problem i would be gratefull

Lol uh little bit of help here if you don't mind.....I've been reading through this thread and a couple of others looking for a fix to my latest problem they seem endless lol

anyway I followed some of the advice posted here in this thread and started saving and then exiting right before the crash (this window of time is extremely small). Problem is I think the game baited me or something lol.....I was doing the usual save and getting ready to exit and I missed, but it didn't crash exactly after, and I still closed it thinking hmmmm. Sure enough I reload and now the moment I try and load my game (click on my save file) click continue, it crashes.

I'm running no$gba through wine on a mac which in of itself took about 16 hours of hair pulling, and troubling shooting, so I'm at my wits end with this lol. I tried using eNDryptS, and the patch neither are loading. Some exe. files work some don't, so a PM or something would nice lol.

Hello! New member but, not new to the forums.
Anyway, I have always played hack games from this site for the GBA games.
I just download desmume-0.9.7-win32 and a Pokemon Heart Gold ROM for the first time.
My problem are the follow: I can save the normal way Shift + F1 which will save my game as it remains open but, if I have to close the Desmume, I have to say "Yes" to "Some files extracted from desmume-0.9.7-win32.zip were modified or new files were created. Do you wish to put them to the archive?" Which if I say "Yes" it will save but, if I don't then it won't save my files. Is this normal?

Then more of my bigger problem is that sometimes after battles (Don't know if after other things as I only just began the game) my character and pokemon will have a box around them and I'll be unable to see them but, able to move. Which will then cause my screen to go black once I start an event. How do I solve this? (I do fast forward my game, is this part of the problem? I can't stand playing at normal speed.)

New problem now... Some of screen will be blacked out either, areas unable to go through or my battle screen which fill freeze after the fight. UGH!!! Should I just try a new ROM?
(If another ROM is needed, can someone give me a link? Not direct link to an English Rom, just in general. I keep finding ROMS from before English Release)
Thanks guys! [:

To Everyone:

Playing Pokémon Soul Silver on an emulator is not a good idea. Pokémon Soul Silver has a code embedded onto it so that it can't be emulated properly. None of the DS emulators are perfect, and all of them have many glitches. For example:-

No$GBA Always crashes randomly
No$Zoomer Always crashes randomly
DeSmuME Too slow
iDeaS No sound
Entasta Does not work completely

I suggest if you really want to play the game, buy some cheap Pokémon Soul Silver on eBay for around $20 AUS.

Even though it crashes, it can be played well enough to actually finish the game ;)
And by the way English ROM does not crash as often as Japanese one.

I can't believe no-one has mentionned the Anti-Piracy patch for HG/SS so far.

It plays smooth and looks great.. however it runs at like 10-20 FPS which is truly unplayable.
"Plays smooth"?
Doubt it, it runs at 10-20 FPS.


But it still depends on the actual No$GBA it uses as base
But didn't NO$Zoomer only work with 2.6a?

Hello! New member but, not new to the forums.
Anyway, I have always played hack games from this site for the GBA games.
I just download desmume-0.9.7-win32 and a Pokemon Heart Gold ROM for the first time.
My problem are the follow: I can save the normal way Shift + F1 which will save my game as it remains open but, if I have to close the Desmume, I have to say "Yes" to "Some files extracted from desmume-0.9.7-win32.zip were modified or new files were created. Do you wish to put them to the archive?" Which if I say "Yes" it will save but, if I don't then it won't save my files. Is this normal?

Then more of my bigger problem is that sometimes after battles (Don't know if after other things as I only just began the game) my character and pokemon will have a box around them and I'll be unable to see them but, able to move. Which will then cause my screen to go black once I start an event. How do I solve this? (I do fast forward my game, is this part of the problem? I can't stand playing at normal speed.)

New problem now... Some of screen will be blacked out either, areas unable to go through or my battle screen which fill freeze after the fight. UGH!!! Should I just try a new ROM?
(If another ROM is needed, can someone give me a link? Not direct link to an English Rom, just in general. I keep finding ROMS from before English Release)
Thanks guys! [:

Y U NO use in-game saves?
Using save states makes your game prone to weird glitches like that.

2.6a...? It should work but... it's not matter of No$Zoomer working or not, it's the matter of No$Zoomer with that No$GBA works with ROM.

You must save really often, quit and play again =)

Anyone who has the Black Screen problem after the introduction of the game, add this code below on the cheats on NO$GBA or press F2. Click 'Add,' and enter the cheat code. After that, tick the Action Replay and RAW.

Pokemon HeartGold (U) black screen fix code:
020DE16C E1A00000
020D3FA8 E1A00000

Pokemon Soul Silver (U) black screen fix code:

I've been using the fix that is on page 14 I think and it works perfectly but, I have one problem. I'm at the lake of rage and I captured the red gyrados already but, Lance won't show up. Is there a code I can use to make him show up or to progress through the game? I was using an AR code then when I captured him though.

He should appear anyway o.O This is weird...
Do you have save state before the Lake of Rage?

January 24th, 2012, 11:45 AM
Sadly no. But, I didn't get the red scale either when I caught it so I think if I just get the red scale it could trigger the next event which is seeing lance.

Nevermind, I just had to use the walk through walls code to go down the stairs at that base. But, I'm not the only one who had this problem I think. I looked on a AR code site and there were at least five others who requested a code to rebattle the red gyrados to try to make it work.

Hey everyone.
Just posting to let you know about my experience emulating Soul Silver.
After many unsuccessful attempts running it on Desmume I decided to try using NO$ with the codes that Shadowed Team has provided above and for my surprise the game is running smooth at 100%!
I'm using the lastest release of NO$, which comes with the WinDS emulator bundle. Using only the default settings.

Specs: Core i7 1.6, Win7 x64, 4GB Ram DDR-3, GPU GeForce GT 230-M.

Btw it's also running with many other programs at the same time, whereas I had to close everything else to get 15-20 fps with desmume.
Hope this helps somebody and thanks alot for the codes Shadowed Team!

Yes, Soul Silver/Heart Gold are playable (and I must say better playable) on No$ but that's the last of the line.
Anything which came after HG/SS does not work properly on No$.
I found that out when I tried to play Explorers of Sky. It did work but No$ wasn't able to save so it was unplayable =)
So for anything "younger" than HG/SS, use DeSmuME =)

did you try to force run Desmume with at least 2 cores running it. you have a high RAM use it to your advantage. take note also of your graphics chip in windows 7 softrasterizer is the solution as this setting is compatible with the default graphics chip of windows 7 and windows vista if its still slow find a compatible graphics chip for OpenGl. its opens source so its readily available and for download, by default windows 7 only has OpenGl 1.1 you need at least version 3 or higher

Desmume is for whatever reason is more of a performance hog. It runs slower, but I still prefer to use it because I do not get the freezing issue. I run Soul Silver at around 70FPS when I am not limiting it on Desmume, it is nearly three times faster in No$GBA.

The only problem I have is that Desmume won't pick up the save file. I have to go through an entire process just to save. I have to save in game, export the save file, open it up in No$ and re-save then import that save file into Desmume just for it to recognize the save. Any fix for this?

why fix something that is not Broken?

if my memory serves me right, Unique extension names are required for any type of files that is produced by a particular software that is being developed/processed and or released under any particular type of licence/s, one extension name for a file must have a unique type of structure or compression because all developers are required to do so under the license that their product is under . the .SAV file was conversely accepted by emulator developers as the as default standard extension name for nds(even in gba emulators) for the simple basic reason that the file structure is uncompressed and identical to the original filetype that was developed by Gamefreak and Nintendo under their own terms and own license (they are a huge company) . I believe No$gba was never released under a particular type of license but rather a product of one individual who stopped the emulator's development since 2008. on the other hand desmume is released under GNU General Public License (GPL) which requires the developers to make their own unique name extension. even though the .dsv and .sav files has almost the same size, structurally wise they are different .

just a trivia, before as in not long ago,the import function of the .sav file was not a featured function on desmume , on its original releases way back probably before 0.9.5 (im not really that certain) you just cant import the .sav file like what desmume has now, it will require you to use a different software in order for you to convert the .sav file and replace the file on your battery folder. so therefore we must be thankful the developers that actually made it possible to import .sav files on later releases of desmume. this entire sequence import export process is actually crucial/ important in desmume's development as the main purpose of exporting the game save to .sav serves as a back-up file for your .dsv just incase you lost or messed it up. it was was crucial because the developers may have not perfected another feature of desmume and that is save states. before save states was not as reliable as they are today.

I am using desmume 0.9.8 for Heart Gold. In one rom, the game freezes in bellsprout tower when I face a monk on the last level. The pokeballs keep spinning and the music plays.
In a different rom, after I beat bellsprout tower and exit to Violet City, most areas are blacked out. When I load my save, the game will freeze after exiting the tower. Are there any patches that could fix these problems? Also, I save with save states instead of in-game, if that helps.

Hey guys,

After reading through this thread i have come to the conclusion that nobody knows how to fix the problem that makes the game unplayable after the 4th gym. So i have now decided to switch my save file from no$gba 2.6a to desume to see if that works. One problem i can't find the battery and slot folder where the save file is located!!!!!! I don't know what's wrong, i have re-downloaded no$gba multiple times and i don't get either folder, HELP!!!!

And have you tried to play the game on DeSmuME anew?

as in start the game over on desume? If so, yes i know that works but i don't want to start the game over if i don't have to.........

some guy on emu forums told me to follow the instructions in his sig which are

"I guess you'd need to check back a few pages now, so, I'll give you a rundown:
1) You need firmware.bin, ndsbios7.rom and ndsbios9.rom. You can dump them from your DS.
2) You need rudolf's patch from this thread. This is the eighth time this link was provided in this thread alone, BTW.
3) You have to either set the Reset/Startup point to GBA BIOS or use the AR code in the linked thread above.
4) You need to set your NDS backup media (F11) to Flash 512k or Auto.
5) Turn on sound emulation, under F11 as well. You can still mute the game with the No$Zoomer option.
6) You need to either start the game using No$Zoomer, or encrypt the ROM with eNDryptS Advanced, available here. "

Im trying to follow all the steps but it is really confusing for me as i am not an expert at this. I still have to find a way to get all three files from step 1. Step 2 says to put the ROM on the patch.......then what, i can compress them into an archive. Finally, #6 makes no sense to me, i downloaded encrypts then i don't know what to do next. Im probably going to give up on this I'm too much of a newb...............
