Some research in NDS save files

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I don't know if this has already been done by someone, but yesterday I did some research in my Platinium save file.

EDIT : Now in HGSS.

Here is the results (in addition to the wiki) (all offsets are relative to the starting offset of a block) :

Pokémon Platinium

General block offsets :

  • Unsigned 32-bit integer

  • In seconds since 1/1/2000 00:00:00

  • Box 1 is 0x00

  • Remember : all offsets here are relative to their block's start (here, the storage block start is 0x7200)

Software I used / credits :

  • Pokésav

I'll now do some research in HGSS save files, then in BW ones ...

I hope my research will be useful.

0xE704 - Pokewalker Steps (32-bit)

0xE708 - Pokewalker Watts (32-bit)

The documentation marked 0xE708 as the Pokewalker steps when it should have been the watts.

 

Also I am sorry for the giant bump. At least you are getting the right information out of the post though.
