GBA Trade Protocol

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Not sure if this is exactly the right place on the forum, but I'm wondering if anyone knows where to find documentation on the gen3 games trade protocol?

Edit: I would also be interested in knowing how the gen1-2 games trades work too if anyone knows.

Not how to do it, but how the games encode and transfer the data themselves.  I'm trying to write a program that can act as one side of the trade.

You do it with Visualboyadvance link, just search it on google. once you have it, open 2 of them with the roms you are using and they act like a gameboy advance you are using to trade.

I'm not trying to trade between ROMs...

Gen 1/2 source got leaked so that is there. Gen 3 is still being disassembles but if the source gets leaked you can use that.

I am not aware of any research into trading specifically though sorry.

I was hoping there was a write-up somewhere as I'm not great at reading assembly or C.  Tried reading Emerald's disassembly (C) to work it out, didn't go too well.

If anyone is fluent in GB ASM and/or C and willing to help me out by working out the protocol, it would be greatly appreciated!
