  1. It works with both; just import/export the CTR cartridge.
  2. Unfortunately, this is not supported by IP.Board. BB code can be used (italics added with BB code), but I'm unable to find a list of supported codes, and there is no obvious way to add custom BB code.
  3. Following our recent hack, we’ve finally restored our infrastructure: the forums have been migrated to IP.Board, and we’ve brought back the wiki. Special thanks to our entire administration team, @xorhash, and @ReignOfComputer for helping to set things up. Invision Power Board Invision Power Board (IP.Board, IPB) is a state-of-the-art forum software with a better security reputation than vBulletin, which we used to use. As vBulletin 4 approached EOL and clearly showed its age, we were considering how to proceed: with vBulletin 5 or something else entirely. The choice, as you can clearly see, has been made. Some of you have already asked why we didn’t choose the software du jour XenForo. This is due to a few reasons: peer, our new technical administrator, has worked with XenForo in the past and repeatedly hit its (and peer’s) limits. We had an IP.Board license readily available, whereas we’d have had to purchase XenForo separately. Looking at the track record of vBulletin for security, and seeing how XenForo is mostly the old vBulletin guys starting a new project, there were security concerns. If you have any questions about using Invision Power Board, please create a thread in the Forums Feedback forum. Staff Changes Due to concerns in real life, @Alpha has decided to no longer be the primary administrator. This means he’ll still be around, but will be less active than usual. We thank him for his hard work maintaining Project Pokémon, and his absence is a loss to Project Pokémon. Helping to fill his place will be myself and @peer, who is our new technical administrator. Furthermore, we’d like to announce the promotion to super moderator for @Kaphotics, @SciresM, and @theSLAYER. Data Loss The hackers deleted a large quantity of data, including some of our more recent backups. As a result, we have lost one year of forum attachments and a up to a few hours of forum posts. The good news is that @theSLAYER, our event moderator, has stockpiled generations of events and several programs, so the situation could have been far worse. @peer is looking into setting up automatic offsite backups to prevent this from happening again. Hashed passwords are still in the wild. We strongly encourage you to immediately change your passwords here and everywhere you’ve used the same passwords. While hashed passwords are not supposed to be reversible (i.e. your password shouldn’t be able to be derived from the hash), vBulletin’s hashing algorithm is very weak, making it that much more important you change your passwords. The Future Let’s not let the data loss get us down; it’s time to move forward. With the recent release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, there still cool things to discover, technical details to be researched, and ROM hacks to be created. (Not to mention there’s some cool stuff going on in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon side of things - more on this later.) As a reminder, the User-Submitted News forum was introduced a few weeks ago to help bring attention to things such as updates to Save and ROM editors, ROM hacks, and other cool stuff worthy of the front page. If you know of anything noteworthy, post it there so it has a chance to be seen by all! Closing Statements We would like to, once more, apologize for any inconvenience caused. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our staff, create a thread in the appropriate feedback forum, or ask in our IRC channel.
  4. What browser do you use on mobile? It works fine on my phone (HTC One M8 using Chrome). Quotes at the end can be selected by touching, then use backspace to delete. On Desktop, select before and press Delete. Emoticon test: (Pressing enter, turning text into images works fine here) Workaround for removing mention on mobile: write and select text before and after the mention then press backspace. Regarding the quote eating your text, I recommend previewing before submitting. Can't test on mobile since the toolbar button hasn't been added to the small editor yet. You can also try tapatalk, since we have the appropriate plugin.
  5. There exists an Action Replay code for Diamond/Pearl that can give the Manaphy egg via the delivery man. 94000130 FCFF0000 B21C4D28 00000000 B0000004 00000000 0000AA3C EDB88320 2000AA68 00000007 <-- The 7 is the thing that gives the Manaphy egg D2000000 00000000 Changing the 7 to other numbers gives things like the member's card to get Darkrai or whatever the letter was to get Shamin. Or the thing for Arceus (it's been a while). This makes me think that the relevant data is already inside the target games. Granted, it could work differently for the prototype but it's probably not too different.
  6. (Pokemon Sun/Moon covers 1) Nintendo has released a patch for Pokémon Sun and Moon introducing the following game balance fixes 2: Battle videos recorded before applying the update are incompatible with this patch and will be unplayable after installing it. With regards to game hacking, this may break ROM hacks, depending on whether or not the ROM hack modified the game's executable. If you are playing such a ROM hack, you will either need to refrain from updating or wait for the author to update the hack. Save editors like PKHeX are unaffected. @SciresM's SMPatcher has been updated to version 1.1 to provide compatibility with the update, and can be downloaded here 3. If you are new to SMPatcher, it will modify the game executable to make QR scanning and PKHeX importing much similar. In order to use it, you will need to have CFW, which can currently be installed using the latest firmware. The recommended installation guide can be found here. Here is a list of patches that SMPatcher can apply to Sun or Moon: Sources: Pokémon Sun and Moon Official Website Serebii SciresM's GitHub
  7. You need CFW, but it will work with either eShop versions and cartridges.
  8. Type the text, highlight it, press the link button, enter URL.
  9. It's handled by Luma, so probably. IIRC, NTR is the only thing that has trouble, since it's not a proper CFW and has to be launched with a cia.
  10. Just paste the url into the editor, and it'll replace the link with a video.
  11. Importing a C-Gear skin from our gallery can be done with PKHeX by following the following steps. First, you will need access to your save file. See this guide for details. Back up your original save file just in case. Start PKHeX. Open your save file for Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, or White 2 using File -> Open... Click "C-Gear Skin" Click "Import .cbg/.psk" Browse to the skin you want to use. After opening the file, click "Save". Save your save file using File -> Export Save... -> Export main.
  12. You can copy/paste your GBAtemp post as rich text, paste it into the text editor, and formatting will be preserved. You'll probably have to use the background-color toolbar button to set the background color to automatic, since that's copied too.
  13. It makes the core code more reusable. It's possible, but unusual, to directly reference PKHeX.exe from other .Net apps to make things like my (very outdated) Pokemon database, where PKHeX does most of the work. Using a code library increases the possibilities.
  14. Bare-minimum, you need PKHeX.exe and PKHeX.Core.dll. The combined file size of the two files should be similar to the previous file size. The PDB files provide extra debug info for us if there's any unhandled exceptions (like line numbers and code files).
  15. Type it in exactly as it appears in the appropriate drop down.
  16. Or, if you're using NDS games:
  17. Normaly, distributing ROM hacks for NDS ROMs involves an XDelta patch applied to the entire ROM. 3DS hacks usually involves tedious ROM extraction and file replacement. Patches applied to the ROM as a whole do not support multiple regions of games, and tedious ROM extraction and file replacement is a chore. DS ROM Patcher aims to fix that: a single easily-distributable zip file contains everything that's needed to apply a hack to a ROM. The supported input and output formats are the same as in my .Net 3DS Toolkit: 3DS, CIA, and Hans. Instructions for creating and applying hacks can be found at the GitHub Readme page. A patcher for @Dio_Vento's Pokémon Star Sapphire 2.1 can be found here so people can try out the patching capabilities without having to make a ROM hack. Fun fact: the zip file I just linked to is about 6.5 MB, while the original distribution file was about 118 MB. Requires the .Net Framework 4.6. Release Page GitHub Download
  18. In order to backup or restore your 3DS saves, you will first need access to CFW or homebrew. Plailect's comprehensive guide on how to set up CFW can be found here. If that guide gives you no options, check Smealum's homebrew website to see if you have a compatible homebrew entrypoint. If you do not have one, you cannot backup or restore your 3DS saves without a Cybergadget, which only works on Japanese retail cartridges and is outside the scope of this guide. Powersaves, the SMS4, and the NDS Backup Adapter Plus will not work because the export the raw save. It must first be decrypted, which can only be done with a hacked 3DS or a Cybergadget. If you're using CFW: Download the latest version of JKSM and copy the CIA file to your 3DS's SD. Install the CIA with FBI. Open JKSM If you wish to backup or restore a save on a retail cartridge, choose Cartridge. If you wish to backup or restore a save on an eShop game, choose SD/CIA and choose the correct game. If your game is not listed, go back to the main menu, choose "Refresh Games", and try again. Choose "Save Data Options". Choose "Export Save" or "Import Save" (depending on what you want to do), choose a save slot, and follow any additional prompts. Your save should now be imported or exported. If you're using Homebrew: Download the latest version of JKSM and copy the 3ds folder to the root of your 3DS's SD. Open the homebrew menu using your favorite homebrew entrypoint. Choose JK's Save Manager, and target the game you wish to manage. Choose "Save Data Options". Choose "Export Save" or "Import Save" (depending on what you want to do), choose a save slot, and follow any additional prompts. Your save should now be imported or exported.
  19. Soundhax was released a few days ago, allowing homebrew access on the latest 3DS firmware: 11.2. This allows the use of save editors like PKHeX and ROM hacks using HANS. From Smealum's homebrew website: It is very likely that this vulnerability will be patched in the next 3DS update, so if this interests you, do not update your 3DS until further notice.
  20. Having fun with image parsing, but colors aren't behaving. 8.png

  21. In order to edit your saves for use with save editors like PKHeX or Sky Editor, you must first be able to backup/restore your save file from a cartridge. There are many ways this can be accomplished, and it all depends on what hardware you have available. The following methods are listed in order of recommendation. Pick the first one you have the hardware to use. When this guide refers to IR games, it refers to games with an IR port like Pokemon HeartGold, SoulSilver, Black, White, Black 2, and White 2, since older tools are not compatible with these. This can be bypassed using a hardware mod of the cartridge that is outside the scope of this guide and is generally not recommended. 3DS with CFW OR a 3DS with Homebrew and either PokéTransporter or Pokémon Dream Radar If you have a 3DS without either, Plailect's comprehensive guide on how to set up CFW can be found here. If that guide gives you no options, check Smealum's homebrew website to see if you have a compatible homebrew entrypoint. If not, then you cannot use your 3DS to manage NDS saves. Usage: Download the latest version of TWLSaveTool and copy it to your 3DS's SD. The cia is for CFW and the contents of the zip is for homebrew. Do one of the following depending on whether you're using CFW or homebrew: For CFW: Install TWLSaveTool.cia using FBI or your favorite title manager, then launch TWLSaveTool. For homebrew: use your favorite homebrew entrypoint to enter the homebrew launcher, then launch TWLSaveTool. Follow the instructions on the screen to backup or restore your save. NDS Backup Adapter Plus OR SMS4 OR R4i Save Dongle. Older variants may not work on IR games. The exact usage is currently outside the scope of this guide. Refer to the instructions given with your device. Look here if you need help disabling driver signature enforcement. Action Replay DSi with a Micro-SD slot and an NDS (original, lite, or DSi) OR an Action Replay Media Edition and an original DS or DS Lite. Will not work on IR games. Not all Action Replay DSi units have a micro-SD slot. Unfortunately, neither the Action Replay DSi with the micro-SD slot nor the Action Replay Media Edition are made or sold anymore. The exact usage is currently outside the scope of this guide. Refer to the manual for your device, or simply reply to this thread if you need help. In order to allow compatibility with save editors, you will need to convert the *.duc files to raw format. My save converter can be found here. An alternative save converter written by @Matt140, with instructions written by @Scarface, can be found here. Original DS or DS Lite AND a slot 2 flashcart that can run NDS homebrew With this hardware combo, you can import/export saves directly to your flashcart using @Pokedoc's savegame manager. Refer to the included PDF for usage instructions. Original DS or DS Lite AND a slot 1 flashcart AND an EZ Flash 3in1 With this hardware combo, your cartridge's save file is written to the EZ Flash 3in1, then copied to your slot 1 flashcart using @Pokedoc's savegame manager. Refer to the included PDF for usage instructions. Original DS or DS Lite AND a slot 1 flashcart AND WEP Wi-FI AND an FTP server (your computer can function as one) Note that WEP is different than WPA, which is more common nowadays and is much more secure. With this hardware combo, you can import/export saves directly to your flashcart using @Pokedoc's savegame manager. Refer to the included PDF for usage instructions. If you cannot do any of the above, and you are not playing on a flashcart or an emulator, then you do not have access to your save file and cannot directly edit it. Depending on what you wish to do, you might be able to create Action Replay codes using PokeGen, but that is outside the scope of this guide.
  22. Are you able to run the games themselves?
  23. You should be able to access them by clicking the envelope icon in the top right corner of the page.
  24. The latest release of Sky Editor only has the save editing features. The ROM editing features are still in development, but here's a link to the last ROM editing beta.
