Extra: What are .ZIP files and how do I open them?
With special programmes, you can create .ZIP files. .ZIP files make it easier to carry
different files; it compresses SEVERAL files to ONE file. For example; to get PPRE working,
you need 3 other files. Instead of downloading these 3 other files seperately, you can
just download them all at once via a .ZIP (''package'') file.
You can open .ZIP files with programmes like WinRAR or WinZIP.
Evaluation Versions of these programmes can be downloaded for free from their sites.
Just click one of the links below to go to their official site.
Extra: Where can I download a Rom File?
Please remember though that Rom Files are ILLEGAL. You may only use them if
you have an original copy of the game. I can't help you with downloading a Rom file as
they are illegal. Just Google it and I'm sure you'll find one. NEVER ask for a Rom File
on this forum.
Extra: What is happening during Step 2?
The ppre programme is now 'opening' your rom. It uses the ndstool.exe file to create
a temporary folder, which is needed to edit your Rom. In your PPRE folder, a new folder
should be created, called: tmp_platinum if your game was Pokémon Platinum Version, or
tmp_pearl if your game was Pearl, and so on! This folder is needed to edit with PPRE,
so DO NOT delete that folder.
