There's been too many threads asking for help on how to run and save Heart Gold/Soul Silver with emulators, so one general thread would be much better. From now on, every thread posted in Emulation about this will be moved here.

Rules
  • Heart Gold/Soul Silver emulation problems only.
  • No linking to ROMs.

When I try to play HeartGold on NO$GBA when the game starts it goes all black and nothing happens.

Anybody who is having the black screen after Oak issue, follow the megaupload link posted below:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XYATR5X1

This is a download for the pokefix patcher. Simply follow the instructions that come bundled with.

This does not contain the rom, ofcourse.

Anybody who is having saving issues, I don't really know what to tell you. Make sure you have your NDS Cartridge Backup Media set correctly in the No$GBA setup. I have mine set to "Flash 512KBytes."
After the patch and making sure it's set correctly saving turns out just fine for me.

I need some help. Everytime I play, eventually after like 20 minutes I get a "ROM Image has crashed" and even if I saved, it won't say I did and I have to start from a random save point before. How do I stop this?

You may have a bad rom, which is a little hard to believe.

Another thing; Under your no$GBA emulation settings (if that's what you're using), if you are playing the patched version of HG/SS make sure you have it set under Reset/Startup Entrypoint to GBA BIOS (Nintendo Logo).
Make sure the save type is set to Flash512KBytes under NDS Cartridge Backup Media too.

I've had the rom image crash error before, but it was because my computer had too much running which resulted in the rom running incredibly slow until it just crashed.

The only other thing I could recommend if it still doesn't work is just try it with another emulator.

1. In your emulator, go to your emulator settings(F11). In Reset/Startup Entrypoint, choose GBA BIOS(Nintendo Logo). Then press OK. After that save the settings.
2. Get biosnds7.rom(16 kb)* , biosnds9.rom(4 kb)* and firmware (It is a bin file. 256 kb)* If you are a pro in DS hacking, get the files directly from it, otherwise download it.
Now if open your emulator, it will show the ds starup and menu. But still, the game won't work.
3. Get eNDryptS Advanced*, place the rom in the directory where you have stored eNDryptS Advanced. Open eNDryptS and choose the first option. The rom will be encrypted.
4. Open the encrypted rom and have fun!!!
NO$GBA is much faster than desmume and ideas.

Also, remember to save often. It may freeze sometimes. You won't be able to use the reset option after this.
*Linking to these files is illegal
When I do this, I get to the main DS startup screen. I click the Game, and I get a "Rom crashed" message.

EDIT: Also, when I do NOT do this, my game freezes after I KO a pokemon (in my first battle)

When I do that, it says it crashes everytime it opens in No$GBA and I cant get to the settings so I have to re-download. ;;

Yes, that can be one of the problems.
That's actually happened to me before too. xD

My game runs fine until I get into a battle. Then it freezes as I knock out the wild Pokemon.

Yeah, that's my problem too! If I run form a battle it will still work, but it freezes whenever I knock out the pokemon. Trainer battles make it freeze too.

I downloaded your soulsilver, but it freezes during my first battle (with a pidgey) right as I reduce the opponent's health to 0.

Has anyone gotten this to work on a DS flash cart or R4?
If so let me know! That's basically the only way that I'll play it

I can tell you what you can do not to play again. Save often. After you save, File -> Cartridge Menu (Filename) -> choose ROM and open it or turn emulator off and then back on. Then you can continue where you started. It is important, that it is you, who ends the game, not the error.

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

ive been playing soul silver on dsemume, but that runs at about 70 percent. ive also tried no$ and put in the code to make it work, but after a while i get the "rom image has crashed" message, and i have to start from where i restarted my emulator last, which is a big pain. so my question would be either how to make dsemume run at about 150 percent or how to make sure no$ doesnt give me that message.
