  1. Hello. I have a copy of Pokemon Emerald with a dry battery that I have been playing on. While playing, since my battery was dead and so berries couldn't grow, I just skipped past all the berry plants intending to return to them later once I had a working battery and would be able to immediately plant and regrow them after picking. Skip forward to today, and I just got another copy of Emerald with a recently replaced battery. I used an R4 Flashcart to back-up my save from the dead-battery cartridge and restore it onto the working-battery cartridge. I loaded up the game (I did not get the usual message about the battery being dry and clock based events no longer occurring, which I took as a good sign), but I then found that all the berry plants within my world had completely vanished, as though they were never there. (If it matters, I am able to plant the few berries I have collected in those spaces). I have PKHeX, and I have tried messing around with the RTC Initial Time, Time Passed, and my Trainer time played, but I haven't found a solution. I have planted some berries to check if they will grow in the meantime, but that will take some time. I also checked the clock in your house to make sure time is progressing on it. I don't know if any other clock/time/day based events will occur. I do still have my save on my original dead-battery cartridge and backed up on the R4. Is there anyone out there who has experienced this sort of issue before and/or knows how to solve it? It would be greatly appreciated, I'd really like to be able to grow berries without making every plant in the game disappear first. Thanks Update 1: The berries I I planted have grown, so berry growth occurs. I also talked to the girl in the flower shop and she gave me a berry, so it appears daily events occur as well.
  2. I'm sorry for wasting your time. I've had all five of the GBA Pokemon games for years and thought they were legitimate, but after doing some more research online I have found out they are in fact all reproductions. That is likely why this wasn't working.
  3. For comparison, I downloaded an Emerald save from Project Pokemon which PKHex successfully opens. I downloaded a hex editor and loaded up both my Emerald save and the downloaded save. Too me, it is all unintelligible, I don't really know how to interpret any of it, but they both looked essentially the same to me. I didn't see any recognizable significant differences in how the data looked in the hex editor. I'm sure it may be difficult to explain over simply text, but what do you mean when you say it looks like "random garbage", and what should it look like instead? The first photo is the file I downloaded, the second is my file.
  4. I have a legitimate GBA Pokemon Emerald cartridge and a Nintendo DS Lite. I used a new R4 cartridge plus the GBA Backup Tool 0.21 to back up my Emerald save. When I try to open it on my Windows PC using the newest version of PKHeX I get the following error message: "Binary is not compatible with save file. Current SAV Generation: 8". This is my first time ever using any of these, so it's always possible I am doing something wrong. Hopefully someone can help me figure it out. POKEMON_EMER_BPEE00.sav
