Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon Rescue Code Converter


Recommended Posts

Of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games, Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is the only one with region locked rescues. Recent discoveries have revealed the region lock can be bypassed simply by swapping around some characters, making it possible to convert US passwords to European passwords and vice versa. Project Pokémon is now host to such a new tool called Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon Rescue Code Converter, allowing players to convert a US or European code to the other. Gone are the times where an adventurer in need can only seek help from adventurers in the same continent, now we can all rescue each other as needed.

If you encounter any problems or have any suggestions, please leave them as a comment on this article or post a thread in the Feedback forum.

Glad a web browser version exists now, it's much more convenient like this! I'm wondering though, does nobody read the GtI/Super research thread anymore? I posted my Python script 9 months ago and it went unnoticed until it was discussed elsewhere a few days ago. I'm not bothered by this, I just realized the thread is going unnoticed and I'm wondering why that is

Since this is getting some attention, I'll take this opportunity to talk about QR codes. Does anyone have any experience working with them? I only managed to take a look at the decoded binary data and it didn't seem to be too complicated. If I remember correctly, a section was completely different, but I don't know what that data is, it might not even be important or required. There was another section that looked very similar to the password, with only some bytes or bits being swapped around. If that's all we need to change, converting QR codes should be just as easy.

Additionally, I noticed I didn't mention this in my original post, but here's some more info about the Japanese version. The passwords are one line shorter than the western versions. Also notice how this last extra line is the same in both regions. As I have explained, I can't compare the Japanese version the same way I compared the western versions because Japanese save files are different. Finding out what the differences between save files are might help. I wonder what the extra line in the western versions is for, I don't see why western passwords would need more data
