I don't know if this is in the correct place,
But I thought that it would be cool to create a program (to be worked on pc)
Which promotes trading between two game (and game saves of course)
This is because using PPSE or Pokesav to shift an event pokemon from one sav to another isn't enough as because if it ain't done by trading, the event flag won't be triggered
(such as directly moving the Eigakan Arceus won't trigger Hiker event in platinum; Another example is TRU Regigigasu directly implanted won't trigger REGIs trio cave)
Not everyone has two DS, and without the WiFi protocol behind hacked,
Trading is hard (especially if it has a Classic ribbon, so can't use GTS)
If such a program is too tedious and time consuming,
At the very least some kind of plugin to allow trading between emulators
(like give the game a false "wireless network" or something)
So I'm wondering anyone who is good with programming and stuff to be kind enough to pick up this project?
Well first of all, trading doesn't set any "flag" for the in-game events you are referring to. The only thing that sets those off is if you have the correct PKM in your party and it has the Fateful Encounter flag set on it.
Second of all, I'm pretty sure this topic belongs in Save R&D, not Misc.
The data structure of the Pokédex and Pokétch Pokémon History apps have been laid out; to make a program that can perform legal trades between two games, we have yet to discover the structure of the Journal (which I believe will record trades), and there may be other things I am not thinking of just now. Otherwise... it should be possible.
Even better would be if we wrote an app that can directly connect between two computers over the internet to perform trades between save files on each machine.
Actually, I do know the basic structure and location of the Journal. It's some of the details that I don't have fully worked out yet.
Like for example, how it records the day's starting position.

Uh...I think that's about it.
I've only a few questions:
1) No, on both accounts.
2) As I said, I know the basic structure, so I could edit it. The problem is that I don't know exactly what values represent what..
Except for trades, each line in the Journal is a 4 byte value. For something like "Used PC Box", that value is 03 00 00 00. For something more complicated like "Flew to X City", the first byte is again the identifier, and the others clarify where exactly you flew.

this would be so awsome
but could it have the ability to trade to ds? like between computer and ds.

I look forward to seeing the results of this research (especially battle videos!!!)Originally Posted by Jiggy-Ninja
Cool!!! But what do you mean about "Except for trades"? I'm guessing they follow a different pattern?Originally Posted by Jiggy-Ninja
To start out, we need to make a program that "trades", as well as changing the obvious values, such as location, where there is a little problem with transferring from platinum to diamond/pearl
