Okay, so I bet you're thinking "Yeah, right" but it's true. I spent all last night trying to figure it out, and I got it. Here are the steps

I can only post a link to No$GBA, nothing else so don't ask, just google it.

1. Download the Pokemon D/P Rom, no$gba (http://nocash.emubase.de/gba.htm), eNDryptS, Nintendo Ds Firmware, and Nintendo DS Bios. Again, no links to eNDryptS, Bios, or Firmware allowed.

2. Unzip all files into one folder and rename the Firmware from DS_Firmware.bin to
Firmware.bin.

3. Now, run eNDryptS, and press 1. If your rom is in the same folder as th eprogram, it'll patch it.

4. Now, run no$GBA and open your rom. You'll see an error message pop up. Go to your options and change the DS save type to Flash512Kbytes. Now reset the rom. You should be ready to go. Important: Press star tat screen that says gamefreaks or it will freeze

You can change around your options to make it faster. I had no problems but after the intro which is pretty fast, it goes slow, really slow. I'm sure they'll fix the speed in the next no$gba release.

Screenshots:
I'll post some later, since no$gba is acting funny with screenshots, and it's not really funny!lol

I might add that the D/P Emulation is far from flawless yet, which results in missing graphics and very slow emulation of the actual games.

And before anyone asks, eNDryptS, the DS Bios/Firmware, and of course the D/P ROMs are illegal, which is why you will not get a link to them here.
If you ask for either of them, you will receive an instant Warning.

How can you save/load data?I've done this but for some reson every time I try to load data the emu freezes.Is there any way to fix it?

I saw a video like this on you tube. I'm not really one for roms, but maybe i'll get an NDS super card and get all that d/p stuff. And Scizz i like your Luna element theme, but why did you choose a girl?! I know her cap looks a bit cooler, but why the girl?

@Scizz:
Yah, it's far from flawless, but it's not just d/p, It's the DS. I'm still amazed no$gba is the only emu hat'll run most ommercial games, and it's slow. But like I said, hopefully they'll work on that and other bugs for their next release.

@foofatron:
I haven't saved yet because when I was trying to take screenshots for this thread, no$gba crashed, so I gotta start again.

Also, If anyone finds any secrets to making the emu faster, for any games, please share. Thanks

yeah i can play it to that way but until they release a good version of no$gba i prefer playing pokemon diamod & pearl on my nintedo DS with my Super Card :P Cant wait until the American version release, oh well come here japonese xD

This is certainly looking good for emulation for the DS. Surprisingly, NO$GBA has come up with some form of play looks promising. I just wonder, what other DS games it can play.

Those D/P screenshots look pretty good, just like the real thing (sorta)

EDIT: And it looks like a lot to download... XD (not the emulator I mean)

YourNobody

I would love to play this. Even if it was only a tiny bit of the beginning, but...I can't find the firmware! I've tried looking for it before without success. I know you guys can't tell me, but I'm just saying. It sucks!

Umm, how do you get the touch screen working? :X

It is working by default. :x
Once you load a ROM, the touch-screen will work when it gets enabled by the game, such as the Pokéball scene in the intro.
It won't work when the game disabled it, for example in scenes where it doesn't need it.

Sure you clicked on the right places?

I got the windows version of no$gba. Maybe the rom?

Edit: got it, i didnt' have key.cfg

I can understand it, so it's very fun ^^. (I am fluent japanese)

Edit2: omg so slow. -goes off and gets flash cart-

Krishnan
March 14th, 2007, 08:56 PM
Umm.. I dunno Japanese at all so if someone can help me.. I load the ROM into No$GBA and then both the touch screen and normal screen turn blue. An on the normal screen a window will be there and somethings written in Japaneese. I cant take the screenshot because No$GBA crashes andthe screenie doesn't show up.. Please I need help urgently! Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.

That's a japanese error message. You need to switch the DS Save Type to Flash512KBytes, then reset the ROM and it should work fine. You can access the DS Save Type Options by clicking Options>Emulation Setup (or just press F11)

EDIT: Guys, I've got real good stuff. Firstly, I know how to get the best speed; In the configuration, get all of these options (I'm going from top to bottom starting by the left column)

Unlimited MHz-Disaster, 10%
Start Cartridge Directly
24bit True Color
VGA (Poppy bright)
None
Flash 512Kbytes
Bright Sunlight
RIGHT COLUMN
Digital Stereo
Low (10KHz) (fast)
None/Disabled
Fast/Fast (best)
1
Master Only (Single Gamepak)
None

This should run your emulator very fast. Although, it does not change the speed outside. The only places where it visibly applies are in certain buildings, and in battle.

Now for a screenshot...

http://img01.picoodle.com/img/img01/7/3/15/f_DiamonSavem_93258e1.png

Save files work!
Actually, they don't. Once you've loaded, the screen just goes black never actually loads the game. If you plan on beating the game on the Emulator, make sure you can do it without closing the No$GBA.

YourNobody
March 15th, 2007, 08:45 PM
Okay! I actually managed to play a bit of this. I had to stop playing because when you go outside your house, it just gets way too slow!

I can't wait for the next version of NO$GBA. Maybe there will be some progress with the speed.

yeah...I found out about this early last month. I was really excited about a DS emulator! It's been a long time coming! Think of the possibilities in the near future! New Pokemon hacks, translations, etc. The future of fan-hacking looks very bright indeed! :cool:

PokeCreator_09
March 17th, 2007, 10:02 PM
Actually, It's not a lot to download at all, and it's not really hard to find. I'm a master at finding stuff though, cause you have to know the right keywords to use.

And yah, I agree that future fan-hacking is something I'm looking forward to. By the time I finish Liquid, I'll be able to start a diamond hack. And What I love is I can program for the DS in C++.

Anyways...

I didn't really give a hint on finding the stuff, I just said to google it, if they didn't know it by now, they won't be able to find the files in the first place. Besides, its not illegal for me cause I own a ds, so I could just download the bios and the firmware very simply from the ds, and I plan on buying Diamond or Pearl when they come out. I just think it's cool that DS emulations finally getting somewhere.

March 20th, 2007, 01:02 AM
I tried this, not with the right bios and other firmware (do we need that to play it on the computer?) and followed the steps. It worked up to the title screen and then I couldn't play it due to the controls wouldn't work. I pressed Enter to get to the title screen, then it would work again. Any help is appreciated.

YourNobody
March 20th, 2007, 10:47 PM
I used Pearl and it ran just fine.

Prophet, there could be two problems.

1. Check the controls in the options. You may not have set them correctly.
2. The emulation is really slow at the title screen. Hit enter and wait.

prophet789
March 21st, 2007, 02:35 AM
Thanks, Ive done the controls option, but the other one doesn't seem likely because I I wait like 10 mins at the max. At the start screen, I press enter, but after a while it comes up with the "Press start to continue"
Can anybody please help me fix it, also thanks YourNobody.

March 21st, 2007, 06:19 PM
It's just really slow at the start screen so just keep pressing enter and wait.

Don't worry, it works with Pearl too. My friend played Pearl this exact way, and I played Diamond. Both worked.

Wow!
Thinking that D/P is emulated..and maybe if No$Gba makes the NDS feature faster, we could start rom hacking this.

But also, if we do start rom hacking, people will make rare pokemon avaliable in maps or whatever, and some may use WiFi to give the Pokemon to there DS then trade them. That's the only downside I see. But I could be wrong.

None the less, a great day in the world of Emulation! :)

I have one question though. How does the touch screen work? I assume with the mouse, but it doesn't do anything when I click on it. Is there something special I have to do?

EDIT: I actually figured it out. I had to rename DS_FIRMWARE to Firmware, without the .bin. Again, thanks for this! I've been looking for a very long time! :D

Absolitude
March 22nd, 2007, 03:51 PM
No the touch screen with activate when it is necessary to be used. Otherwise it will not be on, read other posts before asking questions please, it really saves time. And i would also like to know how wifi works in this. Will it only work via supercard?

I read through all of the posts. I know the touch screen will activate when the Pokeball comes up, and I know I'm supposed to click on the center of it. The touch screen was not working when it was supposed too, but it did when I re-named the firmware file without the .bin at the end, although the instructions say to include it. Now it works. Just wanted to post this in case someone else had this problem; seems like I'm the only one though :P

If you're having problems with the touch screen, its a problem with the firmware. I didn't have to rename mine, but the firmware is where the touch screen ability is at.

For the record, that's because the file has the extension, .bin, included by default. The only time that isn't true is if you have "Hide file types of known extensions" set to "No", which is set to Yes by default anyway.

Anyway, I got it going after a little bit of tweaking. At first I thought it wasn't working because it literally takes about 80 seconds to go from the "Press Start" screen to the game play. After that, the intro thing works at a decent speed (I sat there for ages trying to figure out why the Professor was saying the same thing over and over before I realized he wanted me to tap on the Pokeball on the touchscreen XD!) and if I set the game speed to double then the house works alright, but once I got outside it was just too slow to really try to play. Still, it was interesting. I got the best look at D/P graphics yet, so I'm more excited than ever about the actual game. XD

You probably got a bad ROM. Try redownloading it from a different source.

The game takes a while to load at that point. After you pressed start (check your key config), wait around 1-2 minutes, and it should continue. If you want, you can continue pressing start or A a few times in that time.

I see....thx. Well I was able to press the start button...but does it also take forever for the guy to keep talking at the start? Right after the title screen was gone, there were some japanese words...and it took like forever for it to recognize the a button....

Is that 30mins normal time? Or DS time? Because mine didnt go that slow in the house.
There are a few settings suggested by Marz on the first page that helps speed things up a bit more, but the emulator is not advanced enough to support D/P at a reasonable speed.

Nope. NO$GBA is a miracle. Most NDS emulators are lucky to even play demos right now. Progress has been extremely slow. I was giving up hope on NDS emulation because there has been surprisingly little to no interest in it

All I see is the white/(kind of very light blue) color in both screens, though there's nothing else there, should I wait there?

or, if I don't make it 512KB or whatever it is, there's three lines of Japanese text in a box, in the upper screen, and when that thing is there, no button works.

Is there any problem with my ROM, or what?

NVM It's perfectly working 90% speed ftw!

NO$GBA 3.0 is far away. They're only on 2.4a at this point. The author seems to release two versions a month and they're being released on April 22.

There may be a 2.4b before it gets released, though. That's more realistic.

The 2.4 can already run basically every DS ROM, with variation in speeds. More 2D based games can run at a reasonable almost real time pace, but partial or fully 3D like D/P runs much slower.

The version I downloaded almost a month ago ran the all the ROMS I tested. One or two had a few problems with pictures, but the speed was very good.

I might also add that other DS Pokemon games work too.

I tried DP on it and it ran pretty well, the graphics have minor errors and it is at least working 60-80%. Still there is no way to save in game or load states.

Hopefully they keep improving it at this speed, cause DS emulators are excelling in production xD.

That's what it's supposed to do...

Anyways, I got annoyed with it taking 30 min just to get to the professor and the other hero in the game, so I'm just waiting til the 22nd =P

Pokemon Ranger works without encrypting, but all of the sprites are clear and it's kinda unplayable :(

I changed one of the Nintendo texts at the start and mine did not crash, you might have to move the rom to another location if you have played it already.

I can't wait for 2.4b or 2.5 of the No$Gba.

I don't believe there is any others that work, I tried the latest Ideas and the latest DeSmume on D/P and still no results besides a blank screen. I have tried a few other games on DeSmume and Ideas and some work eg. Yoshi's Island DS and some don't eg. Mario Kart DS.

Get No$Gba 2.4a and make sure you put Unlimited MHz-Disaster, 10% on. It should increase the speed of the emualtor alot.

You can access the main menu (and therefore the save option) with the Nintendo DS's X Button (on my keyboard the equivalent is the Z key).

Strangely, if I use this with Unlimited MHz-Disaster 10%, the game runs overly fast when inside buildings. However, when outdoors (at either Unlimited MHz or 16.78 MHz setting), the game slows down to about 90%. My computer heats up a lot, too... (I need to clean out its innards.)

Save states don't appear to work, but if you can save in game and the game works nearly 100%, then you can save and load the save in game.

Edit: Just learnt how to load an ingame save

1. Make a copy of your "firmware.bin" file or rename it firmware2.bin
2. Now copy "NO$GBA.INP" and call it "firmware.bin"
3. Start no$gba 2.4a with a rom, change the settings to "Start Cartridge Directly" and have the save type as "FLASH 256kb"
4. Options > Save Options to save the settings. Close the No$Gba2.4a and open it up with a DP rom and now in-game saving should work.

Alright, I set the speed to Unlimited-Disaster, 10%, I get 100%-500 in intro and inside. But when I'm outside, it drops down to 30%-70%. What's up? I have 512 RAM, 32 mb vid card (Nvidia Geforce4 MX 420), and 2.26 Ghz.

By the way, is FlashMe a Nintendo DS Firmware? Because my touch screen works with it.
Also, is BiosDumper.ds the correct file for BIOSNDS7.ROM and BIOSNDS9.ROM? Biosdumper.txt talks about those files, so is it the correct one?

Oh yeah..How do you get the clock to show on the touch screen?

For more details about what i am going to say please go to PHO forums but a.) there is a new version of NO$GBA (Sorry if it has ben posted but i am in a rush)
b.) There is now a way to save and load to do this you must:


Go to Emulation Setup and select 512K Flash in the NDS backup media dropdown and save settings
Rename NO$GBA.INP to firmware.bin (I always keep a back up of the firmware but if you can't find it this helps)


Now you can load and save you can also have setings as you like but default is best the sound can be glitchy and being able to save soes slow down the gam but it is still playable.

Now lets wait for those D/P hacking tools ready for the 22nd April :D

Okay, so I bet you're thinking "Yeah, right" but it's true. I spent all last night trying to figure it out, and I got it. Here are the steps

I can only post a link to No$GBA, nothing else so don't ask, just google it.

1. Download the Pokemon D/P Rom, no$gba, eNDryptS, Nintendo Ds Firmware, and Nintendo DS Bios. Again, no links to eNDryptS, Bios, or Firmware allowed.

2. Unzip all files into one folder and rename the Firmware from DS_Firmware.bin to
Firmware.bin.

3. Now, run eNDryptS, and press 1. If your rom is in the same folder as th eprogram, it'll patch it.

4. Now, run no$GBA and open your rom. You'll see an error message pop up. Go to your options and change the DS save type to Flash512Kbytes. Now reset the rom. You should be ready to go. Important: Press star tat screen that says gamefreaks or it will freeze

You can change around your options to make it faster. I had no problems but after the intro which is pretty fast, it goes slow, really slow. I'm sure they'll fix the speed in the next no$gba release.

Screenshots:
I'll post some later, since no$gba is acting funny with screenshots, and it's not really funny!lol

You just copy and paste the NDSBios files in the ROM folder, uincluding the Endrypts file and there you go, start the Emulator and play.

And yeah, X button opens the menu and the game can be saved... but not loaded. Maybe newer versions of the emulator can load it but too bad this one doesn't.

Kait: There is a patch for the ENGLISH d/p roms that makes things go a LOT faster, and you don't need to rename any files to save =P

My post:

Can someone please screenshot all 8 badges in their case after all of them have been completely shined? (They will have 4 sparkles each). To shine them, rub the mouse across the badges to emulate wiping them with the stylus. I need them for a project I'm doing, and I only got up to Gym 2 on my rom -.-

http://img83.imageshack.us/img83/4448/badgesfx4.png

Example of what I want, but with all 8 badges, not just 2. Person who does this (Needs to be a rom screenshot) will get a shiny marill when I reach pal park in my pearl, if you want it. :)

Im trying to get the US version to work but i get 2 outcomes with the US version. (I find it weird how the US version is only 65Mb)

1) I use the downloaded rom (dont know whether its encrypted already) and when i use it with the emulator it says the "The rom-image has crashed"

2) I use the NDSPatcher then use the emulator in which is case it says cannot read data

I can get the Japanese Version working, but its ridiculously fast, i get around 1000% and i dont know any Japanese.

I have 5 badges so far, lol. I transfered my Japanese .sav file to my English .sav file, so I don't have to start all over again. By the way..I don't think emulators can go online yet..so no shiny Marill =( (not that I want one LOL)

There's a screenshot of the badges at Serebii (at the main site, under the D/P section, under the Gym Leaders section). I'd post it, but there's a reason Serebii doesn't allow saving pics from his site (I know I could do print screen, but Serebii wouldn't want that).

Hey! I recently came across this thread and its helped loads. I finally managed to get the save working. Now the only problem is the speed, any suggestions on how to increase the speed?

Somehow, it was running at around 70% while outside and 100% while inside yesterday. Now its back to 50% and 80%. If you can help me to maintain around 70-100% then it will actually be playable.

Thanks anyway!

incase the save doesnt work for you guys, switch the save options in No$GBA to 256KB NOT 512K IT WILL SAVE AND IT WONT BE CURRUPTED.

also set
Emulation speed to Unlimited 100% disaster, will increase the speed but its risky.

.rar files arent ROMs or anything like the sort. They are files that have been compressed by uploaders to save them time uploading larger files. Use Winrar to unlock it.

I also had a same problem like your "_Prince_" and others also said follow the steps follow the stpes lames..... here try what i did cause it worked for me.

1. Open your emulator.
2. Go to "File" menu.
3. Click Cartridge menu (FileName) f12
4. Click on "Battery" Folder, at the "File of type:" make it "All Files" cause normal will be "GBA ROM Images"(Open the Battery Folder where you have save the game file)
5. Now click at the save game file, and click "Open"
6. When you click ok you will get a "Warning" dialog box just click ok
7. Now a dialog box with the title "NO$GBA -FATAL will appear, just click ok there too :)

And reopen your emulator again and open the rom and now you must be able to load your save game :)

I am totally not sure of it cause i test this myself only, so if you try it please give me the feed back please :D

2.Get the firmware and the Bios.
3. Now put these all in the same folder with the emulator and the rom.
4. And get the patch from here (http://www.4shared.com/file/14687383/41775376/lgc-pkmd.html) and patch it with the rom.
5. Go to option and make these setting below----->

NDS Cartridge Backup Media: FLASH 256kBytes

Nintendo prohibits the backing up of any of their licensed games or products. Regardless if you downloaded the ROM file or dumped it yourself. It is still illegal. If you dump a ROM file from your personal game, your warrantee is immediately void.

Umm...roms aren't illegal unless if you don't own the game already(true statement), also many of us already knew this(we know roms are illegal), so that is the reason people create patches.

You speak of an old rumor that is as old as the internet, my friend. I'm also afraid you are incorrect. Nintendo prohibits the backing up of any of its products. Downloaded or dumped. It doesn't matter.

This(http://www.nintendo.com/corp/legal.jsp#download_rom) should explain, Nintendo finds nothing wrong with having a second copy via a rom if the one you own crashes.

you must set in controls down right game screen filter to scale 2x and set by emulation unlimited mhz-disaster 10%
start cartridge directly vga poppy bright none flash 256k bytes master only (sigle gamepack)

then save in the game by presing a and then choose save and when that's done load you're emulator agian and load you're game and then there's a menu were you're save game is standing

It works for me the patch....Do you sure how to patch? Download it and double click, and search for your D/P rom and click ok.It will say , the rom succesfully patched.
