Hey. I was trying out PkHeX on my Pokemon Emerald Kaizo save. I play on a FlashCart(EzFlash Omega), and I have gotten my starter, opened the PC, and saved twice via the in-game menu. When I try to load it into PkHex it says "Binary is not compatible with save file. Current SAV Generation: 3

PKHeX is not programmed to work for any ROM hacks.

Any modification made from the base game will likely change how the data is saved, and thus, the interpretation for save data will not match the natural supported games.

That said, the data in your attachment does not look like a save file with any discernible progress. Progress in game and try again, and still remember that PKHeX does not support ROM Hacks.

Tried it on a mostly-normal rom. Randomized pokemon and items, but otherwise no changes. Got up to the first pokecenter, saved twice, then tried PKHeX again, same issue. Also, I remember seeing PokemonChallenges(A Nuzlocke Youtuber) using it to get information on his Emerald Kaizo pokemon. Attatched is the randomizer save I attempted to use. Pokemon Emerald (U)(TrashMan).sav

Open it in a hex editor. There's nothing in that file.

Save and export your file correctly. This is not an issue with PKHeX.

How would I go about exporting it properly? I thought I was supposed to just pull the .sav after saving via the in-game menu.

Use the extra in-game menu (like press Start > save), then close the emulator fully, then go to the battery folder.

Hi guys, I'm new to pkhex. anyways I read through the whole topic and it didn't really help me with my problem. When ever I try to load my .sav file for emerald into pkhex it says "binary not compatible with save file." what do I do?

Use the dev build until the next stable release.
