The Wi-Fi stuff, i can only play (and trade) against others Desmume players, or have a link with the DS users too? (i know this sounds dummy).

And sorry for the bad english.

Hey question here:
This is my first time trying a ROM Hack and I decided to try Pokemon Flora Sky. So I downloaded a patcher and an emerald rom.
So I think the next step is to apply the patch right??

So when I tried to do that I get this
To directly patch source file, a temporary file is being made.
Upon successful patching, the target file will be replaced with this.

Applying patch file 'C: \Users\Wolf\Desktop\Flora Sky Final Main Version.ups' ...
Reading file 'C: \Users\Wolf\Desktop\1986 - Pokemon - Emerald Version (UE)_1.gba' ...
Target file is 'C : \Users\Wolf\Desktop\1986 - Pokemon - Emerald Version (UE)_1.gba.utm' ...
Patch application will take approximately 0 minute(s), 16 second(s).
Please be patient ... UI will not be responsive during this time.

Failed! Input checksum is invalid.


HELP

Link as Infra doesn't work, but you can trade and battle with the Wi-Fi feature.

So I have officially become confused.

I have been playing Pokemon Emerald on my phone using the MyBoy emulator and decided that I wanted to trade a few pokemon so I went on my computer, got the save file off of the phone and used No$GBA to trade a few starters into that gamefile. Now I'm trying to put the save file back onto my phone so I can play it with the new starters and all.

Here's the problem: When I put the save file back onto my phone and open up the rom it doesnn't recognize that the save file even exists. I placed it with the same file extension and file name as before in the same directory as the rom, but the rom just acts like there isn't a save file there. Is there anything I can do to fix this or can MyBoy just not recognize the save data?

My Boy is written in a different language to NO$GBA, they both handle data differently.
My Boy also makes 3 different files (instead of 1) when running a GBA game. The main save file (.SAV), another save file and then an image.
I'm not sure what the other 2 files are for but they seem to be needed when loading the main save.
I'm not sure how to fix this but you are properly better off asking the dev of My Boy for some answers.
His email is on the Play Store.

Any ds emulators that let you use a jailbroken apple device as a bottom touch screen and then use your monitor / keyboard as top screen and button input?

You're going to need an IPS patcher (I use LIPS(Lunar IPS) I can't provide a link, just google it.) And a rom of the original game. Basically you run the patcher and patch the original game with the IPS. That will yield a patched rom of Pokemon Snakewood. Run the rom through an emulator to play.

Awesome cheers for that.

But at the moment i've downloaded snakewood from this site and found Lunar IPS.

So basically I need an original version of the game (which oneruby/sapphire) and then apply the snakewood to the original via the lunar IPS I take it then?

If so, can I get the original file from this site?

Thank you again

Lunar IPS is the commonly used one.

Yes, You download the version the game was created on (Which is Ruby), Load Lunar IPS, Select the IPS file, then the ROM, then you patch =]

We are not allowed to post links to ROM's (Forum rules).

Google is your friend.

Does someone know if it's possible to make a AR code for BW2 to always get double wild battles?
I've searched a lot in google but couldn't find anything.

I've searched and searched and searched for a Evolution Editor, and found a couple (like from 2008) but they don't work for whatever reason. All I'm after is a way to evolve trade Pokemon (Alakazam, Golem, Gengar, Machamp) in FR/LG while playing on VBA. I used to have a program that let you change it so they evolve at a level instead of by trade. It had an Eevee as the program icon. The program Pokemon Editor seems to be what I want BUT keeps giving me an error (InvalidArguement=Value of '15' is not valid for 'index'.) and wound up giving me a white screen when I load my game.

Help!? A method of trading or a editor to change the trade requirement would be great...

I have problems with Sappy mod 17.1. I've installed correctly (first version 2006 and then replacing it with the mod 17.1) I have Windows 7 Enterprise x86 and is updated to the day of the date. The problem is that when I run the application doesn't open. And if I drag the ROM. Gba to sappy, opens correctly, but if I want to file assembly. S, sappy closes saying "sappy 2006 has stopped working" HELP!!

Try finding an older sappy 2006 installer, then run it and install Sappy 2006. It'll register some files in the registry that it requires to run.

It's not bugged. It's full of pirate checks which causes the game to crash due to being emulated. The patch simply freezes these pirate checks so that it doesn't cause any crashes.
As far as I know, you have to use No$GBA for the patch to work.
If it works for DeSmuME, Can someone confirm this please?

It works fine on the latest Desmume, I've played the entire rom without any crashes or errors.

Thanks VERGUNDAI for the confirmation.

BXisAWOL, You can use either No$GBA or DeSmuME with a patched Soul Silver.
You should be able to find the patch through Google.

As VERGUNDAI confirmed, play on DeSmuME isn't problematic, but don't try AR freeze fixes or something, that only makes more bugs.

Hey all, I've just downloaded an official GBA Video ROM containing 2 episodes of Pokemon, I tried to run it on PSP on the gPSP emulator but it's lagging and the sound is slow making the episodes impossible to watch. Is there anything I can do in the configuration to make it play normally? Any help is appreciated

Have you tried VBA on PC if it's actually working?
The PSP emulation of GBA isn't that good... that might also be a reason.
