    Re: PKM froze game when attempting to view it's stats

    what game are you viewing it in?

    e: i don't know how much truth there is behind it, but i only use the beta for editing 5th gen stuff. all 4th gen stuff stays in 2.312, and i've never run into anything like that.

    I'm pretty sure this is a problem on your end. I tested it myself, despite knowing that nothing was going to happen in-game after viewing the .pkm file. It didn't crash. It couldn't crash it. Not without ROM modifications or other codes being active that're interfering somehow. Alternatively, you may be adding an extra party Pokemon without increasing the party count.

    It was sent to a retail game with sendpkm.py the file may not have made it in one piece
    i was not using an AR i do not even have one
    edit sent it again it froze when i views the stats (summary) this did not happen when i made it with beta 12

    The Pokemon has 0xFF for its party status value. This is erroneous as far as I know. A quick glance at the code says this couldn't have been caused by PokeGen. I don't know if it's what's causing your problem either. As I mentioned, I used the exact .pkm file, generated a code for it, put it into HG/SS, and it worked fine.

    Re: PKM froze game when attempting to view it's stats

    I had 6 pokemon in my party and i had sent the file to my ds using sendpkm.py
    it went to slot 2 in box 3
    i made a similar pokemon with beta 12 and it worked fine
    Should i make another PKM and send it and see if it happens again?

    Being able to repeat a problem reliably is the best way to provide me with a way to fix it. I have no idea what all you're doing with the file/data or if you're being completely accurate with what you're telling me. You may leave something out that's significant because you don't know that it's significant. At the moment, this seems like user error.

    1. open pokegen 3.0b13
    2. options->GH/SS
    3. file->load select original latios (you have a copy of this pkm already via Private message)
    4. go to met tab
    5. change ball to premier ball
    6. open Pid finder
    7. set Pid finder [pic]
    8. file->save from tabs
    9. save as 236 byte (non encrypted) *when would we use encrypted?*
    10. Linux terminal: sudo python Desktop/sendPKMN/sendpkm.py Desktop/Latios3.pkm
    11. go to pc
    12. go to move pkms
    13. open box 3
    14. view summary of new pkm
    15. game freezes

    Re: PKM froze game when attempting to view it's stats

    Why are you going directly to box 3 as if the Pokemon is there via sendPKMN? If SendPKMN is putting it there (keep in mind that I've never used the program and know nothing about it), why are you using a 236-byte (party) file for a PC slot?

    Re: PKM froze game when attempting to view it's stats

    it sends it via the GTS system the GTS puts in in the pc
    i have done the same thing with my entire party (did not change ball) on beta 12 with out issues
    I have returned the original PKM and one made with beta 12 with out issues
    here is a vid showing sendpkm.py

    NON-party format gives error

    Re: PKM froze game when attempting to view it's stats

    I'll keep this in mind and might come up with some ideas of what's causing the problem, but at the moment, I'm clueless. I haven't tried using SendPKM myself yet, but I will tomorrow after work. Maybe that'll show me the problem somehow.

    good luck
    i did the same exact thing with beta 12 with out issue

    because the 236 bytes pkms can be sent to either the party or box without issue. 136 byte pkms can only be sent to the box without issue.

    I can't test sendpkm with Desmume like I thought I'd be able to.

    Re: PKM froze game when attempting to view it's stats

    you can use a retail game assuming you have made it to the gts
    you might be able to get desume to work if you use 2 computers (virtual box might work with a bridged network)
