    Is there a way to change the values of Height and Width from imperial to metric units?

    I think it can be done by hex editing, since the original values are already in metric units IIRC. What and where it needs to be changed is the issue.

    This is for FireRed, by the way.

      Directly after 4th gym beaten, preferably. I was playing through platinum on NO$GBA but when I started it up today the save file had been corrupted. Anything other than around the 4th gym in progress doesn't matter as I will just hack the save file to get the pokemon I had.

        I've been using PPRE. I followed the instructions listed in the tutorial. I get to the part where I set the ROM and made my changes/edits. But when I try to Write ROM nothing happens. I did platinumedit.nds like it specified, and no new file was created anywhere. What is the problem? Nothing happens.

        I am only trying to edit movesets/stats/types and boss teams. Could I maybe go to an older version? Or am I doing something wrong.

          I was wondering, what's the last version of VisualBoyAdvance to include Action Replay? Been wondering cause every version I download just has the Game Genie with the Gameshark, but no Action Replay option.

            Hi!

            I am playing Emerald on gpSP 3.4.

            The RTC didn't work with normal saves, so I used the built-in savestate option of gpSP.

            The problem is that players are forced to load a normal savegame after beating elite four. After I did, I again got the message that the game battery has run dry and RTC has been disabled. (This is true as I checked the ingame clock)

            I read about increasing the flash size (?) for the game, but I can't find such an option @ gpsp.

            €: I found the game_config.txt, which has the following entry for emerald german:
            # Pokemon Emerald (G)
            game_name = POKEMON EMER
            game_code = BPED
            vender_code = 01
            idle_loop_eliminate_target = 080008ce
            flash_rom_type = 128KB

            Flash rom of 128KB is the correct size?

              Somehow it started to work again. Not sure what was the reason for this;
              I did things like quitting the programm, editing flash rom to 64 in case the rom was modified, didn't work, changed it back to 128, then started the game again. For whatever weird reason the clock was working again.

              Maybe the savegame wasn't really written correctly before to the rom, I can imagine.

                Random question: Can I continue a savegame if I switch from original to a hacked/modded rom? (I do assume so)

                  If I'm interpreting this question properly, it depends on the hack, I'd imagine. But it's safe to assume probably not.

                    It depends on the size of the patch iirc. If it's smaller, you can use a program called Lunar IPS (or LIPS), which is also a common program for applying patches to roms, so you might be familiar with doing that. There's also NUPS (i can't remember exactly what that stands for) for bigger patches. It should be pretty straight-forward when you launch either of those programs

                      Hey, so I am looking to play a HeartGold Randomized Nuzlock.

                      I already have the desume emulator and the UPR Randomizer, however every "ROM" I download isn't compatible with the randomizer. I don't know if I need another randomizer/emulator or a specific ROM. If anyone can suggest a combination that worked for them that would be appreciated.
                      Thanks!

                        This is probably the wrong place, but not sure where I would post this question and I didn't think opening a whole thread in Resources would be appropriate; is there a superior debugging application to VBA-SDL-H? The inability to go back to previous instructions causes real problems, not to mention the clunky command-line interface. Does there exist an emulator with a built-in GUI debugger?

                        Thanks.

                          hello everyone! i have recently gotten a gba with a sd card cartridge that allows me to play (almost) any gba game.
                          I've tried to load up several rom hacks that would fit on a max size gba cart but they do not work, due to the sd card cartridges setup.
                          so that brings me to this:
                          does anybody have a simple way of flashing a ligit cart. for ex, buying a gba game online and removing the rom and replacing it?
                          if so, could someone give links to any hardware or software needed?
                          (if it breaks the rules of the fourms you could dm me right? or dm me for discord or something.)

                              I am almost finished with an N64 Pokémon hack; specifically Pokémon Stadium. But I can’t seem to finds program that patches, and/or creates a patch for Pokémon stadium files. My emulator is project 64, but I heard there are others. Which program should I use to patch it, and are there any other things I need to have? Please let me know.

                                I need help with the randomizer. I am playing emerald on the GBA emulator NO$GBA..and i'm trying to evolve my graveler without trade.

                                I pressed open ROM and selected my emerald ROM. I checked 'Change Impossible Evos' and pressed 'Randomize (Save)'. Now when I try to open this new edited ROM, it works but my save file isn't there, it just says 'new game'.

                                What am I doing wrong?

                                Can I not hack my current save file or do I have to start a new game if i'm trying to use the universal randomizer?

                                  Hey, hopefully this is still up and running because I am in need of a lot of help. My Soul Silver save will not load for some reason. Every time I hit continue, the emulator (no$gba) crashes. I have tried so much stuff that hasn't work either because it simply does not work, or because I'm doing it incorrectly. Can someone please help me get past this. It seems so many other people have gotten crashing saves after they beat Morty in gym 4 as well. PLEAASE HELP.

                                    I understand that this forum is more for fan games, but given that this forum has Pokemon hackers, I was hoping to help with something.

                                    Pretty much, I was playing Pokemon Crystal on the bgb-1.5.4 emulator. My desktop was accidently unplugged while the bgb-1.5.4 emulator was running and the game was on. When I turned my computer back on and tried to play where I left off, the game will not load my save file. My save file exists as a .sav on my computer, and an .rtc file was created as a result of my desktop being unplugged.

                                    However, I know close to nothing in terms of hacking the game file or fixing the issue.

                                    I really don't want to start over as I just made it into Kanto, and it took me awhile to get to that point.
                                    I hope you are able to help me. Thanks!

                                    It's probably the emulator and not the game.

                                    All you can do is try to make sure everything as was, and if it doesn't work, you might have to restart. Be sure and copy your game folder as often as possible when working to avoid it happening again.

                                      Are you suggesting that I re-download the emulator again?

                                      If the game still boots up, you don't need to. But if it won't read your save file anymore... even after you've put everything back where it should be, you have no option but to just start a new game.
