Pokemon Emerald Cart PKHex Issues

Recommended Posts

Pretty self explanetory-I extracted a save from my Emerald cart using my return 5 and I cannot figure out for the life of me how to get this to work in PKHex. I have the Retron 5 file converter tool, but apparently the save file is too big for the save editor (139KB)

 

Please help!

Thanks man-is it pretty straight forward to do? Hex Editing I mean, if the file is too big.

It is pretty easy to do.
 

1. Drag the save into HxD
2. Select 0x20000 byte and drag all the way to the end (like selecting a bunch of text to delete)
3. Delete em all.
4. then save the file

I mean, I did it for you pretty quickly ><

 

Also for now, check if this might work:

Sweet! I'll give it a go later:) I guess I can just use the Retron converter to inject it back.

So Im using an online Hex editor but I cant see the 0x20000 bit:/

I took the one from the save,used the Retron5 converter to get the bigger one, then went to that address.

Pokemon - Emerald Version (USA, Europe).sav

You're suppose to use Retro5 converter on the save first (to make it bigger)

Don't make it overwrite the save; make a new save.

So Ive done that, and found the 20000 bit, do I just select from there and drag all the way to the end?

Yes, because select the entire area from there to the end.
then delete that area

I cannot for the life of me find an online tool that allows me to delete stuff that Im hex editing. Im using a Mac with WINE but cant seem to find a downloadable tool that works...

Since you are using a Mac, you don't have to bother with using a Hex editor. Use the following command from a terminal in the same directory as your file

dd if="Pokemon - Emerald Version (USA, Europe).sav" of="Pokemon - Emerald Version (USA, Europe)-new.sav" bs=128k count=1
