Trying to view diploma again

Recommended Posts

I appreciate all the work done on this website (my save file would still be corrupted without this site's help!) so i just want to make a shout out to the programmers on here.

I was wondering if it is possible to reset the event of receiving your national diploma in Heartgold (or previous generations, but Heartgold is the game I'm currently playing) using PKHeX.  I can see that there are certain events that can be reset and edited, but I did not notice the diploma event.  I tried to see if I could delete one Pokemon (Ratatta and Raticate specifically) from my box and Pokedex, and catch it again, but that didn't work.  If anyone has insight into this particular manner I would appreciate the help!

If there is an event flag for this, that would be great. I'm not seeing that available though 

What you can do is find a HeartGold savefile at someplace like GameFaqs, fill the pokedex with PKHeX, make a copy the edited savefile, receive the diploma with an emulator, then do a before/after comparison in PKHeX's "Event Flags" tab. It will pinpoint the flag that triggers it.

ugh the saves that i tried using from GameFaqs weren't recognized by either DESMUME or PKHex

When i load the rom and import the save, it crashes the program.  The files available on the gamefaqs are .duc and .dst--a .dst i made a while ago works fine but not the one from gamefaqs

I'll attach my modified HG save. I'd do the flag tests myself, but I currently working on a couple other projects.

okay thank you! and i was able to get the diploma using your save.

There does not seem to be any difference between before and after receiving the diploma unfortunately...it may just not be an option in the PKHex program at the moment.  I can attach the .dst files before and after receiving the diploma if anyone wants to analyze.

It is nice seeing the diploma again at least :)

dst files are (d)esmume save (st)ates, not save files. The save states are specific to the emulator version & ROM you're running, so it's not guaranteed to be loaded. You'd have to attach save files instead (sav/dsv).

You should compare with actual .sav/.dsv files, not save states.

mhmm when i made the comparison i was using .sav, i thought .dst would be easier to load up and export but that's not the case apparently

That worked thanks a ton! Is there a good place where I can learn how you were able to compare the flags checked as well as constants? I probably could not see that without help at the moment...
