Gen 3 PkHex?

Hello, so I'm currently playing pokemon ruby on an emulator ... now I wanted to pick up a Pokemon, but somehow it doesn't work. I play on "Retroarch" where the files are saved as ".smr". This was already in Pokemon Gold that I played. There I solved it so that I simply renamed the ".smr" file to a ".sav" file and then dragged it in. But now when I do that with Ruby the following error message comes up:

Attemted to load an unsupported file type / size. This could be caused by loading a different generation Pokemon file on an unsupported generation or youre file is courupt.
File loaded:
😄 \ User \ [My name] \ Desktop \ Pokemon Ruby.sav
File size: 139264 bytes
139264 bytes (0x22000)

It may be important to mention that it is a randomized rom, which was the case with gold and still worked there

edit:

Yeah, that smiley sould ba an C_:

xD

so you're trying to load a save before you pick a starter?

That's the problem right there.
perhaps load the file onto a PC emulator (like VBA), then try to pick a starter.
Or transfer the save to a non randomized game and play there.

You need to grab a starter before trying to load the save on PKHeX.

Ok thanks, is there a reason why it's to big?

I don't know, probably because your emulator uses a big save?

You haphazardly changed the extension from .smr to .sav.
I'm unsure if you load back a .sav sized file to the emulator, whether would it work 😧

You may have to untrim the .sav after editing.

Better learn how to use Hex editor to trim and untrim :D
