  1. Yes. The cart is different from the others though, it's much bigger. EDIT: Removed part where I said smaller carts could exist. It was a misunderstanding.
  2. Yes. I live in Italy, but I'm not italian. The "Nintendo Employee" is just one. Although I'm not too sure about what was his role with Nintendo, I only know he had a bunch of carts which I purchased. I paid over 10.000€, and I'm still paying a monthly fee which I'll finish paying in June 2017. I currently have: 1 10ANNIV for each european language, 1 Aura Mew for each european language, 1 Aurora Ticket US, 1 Shiny Zigzagoon UK, and some others I can't disclose any info about currently, but I have told some people about them. I had multiple 10ANNIV UK, Aura Mew UK, Aurora Ticket US, Shiny Zigzagoon UK ( whose cart was different from the others) because apparently these UK carts were not used only in UK, but also other countries in the north of Europe. Aurora Ticket US was used in several US states. Some of those carts were also sold on Nintendoage by some guy in 2012. That's how several people got their hands on them ( I was lucky enough to get some myself), and that's why I'm allowed to sell 10ANNIV and Aurora Ticket US freely. I got them in the past before I had a deal with that guy. Some other people got Shiny Zigzagoon, so it was "leaked" before I got my hands on the lot of carts from that guy. Similar dynamic with Aura Mew, and I think there's a post on here too, so I did sell it in the past, but I sold them quickly and I have no intention to share the ROMs currently. In the past few years I sold a few 10ANNIV, a few Aurora Ticket US, a few Shiny Zigzagoon UK and a few Aura Mew UK ( although these last ones were sold to a single buyer years ago, so I never put them on eBay, but you'll probably find them for sale by someone else sooner or later). I don't have any other carts to sell anymore. I was just selling to get some money back, and now I've finished all spare carts I had. As I said, in June 2017 I'll finish paying and I'll be "more free" to talk about whatever else I have. Check back in July 2017 and I'll have something sweet for you all.
  3. I've been told to come here by a user who contacted me on ebay and explain once again. But I feel like I already have a few months ago: Message: Response: There are several other messages after that. In short, I don't sell carts that I've modified, I bought them all just like I sell them. If anyone doubted me because of the decchi file, it is all explained in those pages, and Purin got mails proving that I was scammed So I learned that carts can be modified, but I don't have any equipment to do this. To be honest, after learning that, I really started thinking I was scammed even when I bought the lot of carts, since it seems that in case you have the right nintendo equipment you can do wonderds with it. I called the guy after that discussion, but nothing came out of the convo. I spent much more than I got by selling a few carts in the past few years, and to my knowledge none of the carts are fake but the azure flute one that I binned months ago. I got a loan in order to buy all those carts when I did and I'm still paying money, that's why I sell some sometimes. Prices are not even the ones I listed, it's mostly just to show off, receive offers and talk about other distributions with other people. I don't sell every time, and usually when people contact me we just end up talking about interesting pokemon stuff, and I enjoy that. I'm done talking about this and I don't think I'll keep reading this convo unless someone points it at me again... You can believe they are fake because they do not come with the system. I do own a few of those distribution systems ( quite a few were sold years ago on nintendoage. Shiny Zigzagoon, Aurora EUR, 10ANNIV, Aura Mew) and it doesn't take much to take the cart out of them. And the guy who sold them to me who I personally met to buy the carts didn't look like a scammer to me. And I'm also almost done selling my spare carts, so I won't be called a scammer anymore. Hope you all guys have great holidays.
  4. Glad it all got sorted out. I'm impressed by all the work of you guys here in this thread, that's amazing! You can PM me for anything related to GBA Distribution carts and I'll see if I can help you in some way
  5. I'm glad all this thing has been sorted out. I hated being called a scammer while I was the scammed one. In page 71 I explained how I got scammed on the azure flute and the decchi.gba file and then I proceeded to send proof of what I said to purin. Moreover, I said I do not know anything about how to alter any cart ( my post history in this forum can prove that I think) and that all the carts I have, including the one I sometimes sell on eBay, are not copies or fakes. I'd have no idea how to do it. And in fact I was scammed by this guy " Ben Smith", who I suspect to be someone in this forum I mentioned before who somehow knows how to make fake carts. About me trying to sell it, knowing it could have been fake, I did. But as you can see from the link Purin posted, I closed the listing for " an error", I did not sell it. And I was still not 100% sure it was fake and I mostly opened the listing to get more people to know about my carts. I think I had also other carts listed during that period. In 2014 I contacted this guy "Ben Smith" again, telling him I had doubts about his cart. Here is the mail: https://www.dropbox.com/s/du6ozpfl2b0pg2i/is%20cart%20fake.PNG?dl=0 As you can see I say that I don't want to fool people by selling a fake cart. His email address had been deactivated though, so I could not receive an answer. Here is proof of it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ssiwd5tg7ncsaq7/failure%20to%20send%20mail%20to%20ben.PNG?dl=0 I know I've been scammed because the cart I was sold was said to be a "unique japanese prototype". But the rom in it was already available to some. I thought that yes, it wasn't unique, but I didn't think the guy who scammed me was able to create a fake cart. And I guess I'll never know
  6. You can contact me via PM and I can send you some screens of the mails and private messages on this forum between me, *EDITED* and Ben Smith if you want. I'd be really glad if you could modify the post of yours I quoted, maybe with just an edit at the end saying I explained everything in the following page. It's true, that was the deal. Money + my 10ANNIV Rom for his Aurora ticket cart. In fact, I still have his cart and his GBA. I'm selling and I sold the carts of the guy I bought the lot from, so I didn't break his agreement, so not his carts and I'm sorry if he thinks I have. He could have contacted him and I would have explained everything. If you know him, you can tell him. Initially, I had bought just a few carts from the guy who I eventually met in Rome. The carts I bought were Aurora Ticket and 10ANNIV, which I already had, so no agreement was needed. I met him in person to sign the agreement and to get all the other carts he had, including carts that were not Aurora or 10ANNIV.
  7. The agreement was only for the "unleaked" carts. I already had 10ANNIV and Aurora and still have them, so I can freely sell the extra copies I bought from him. I'm not sure what you meant though? You mean sharing the ROMs publicly? To be honest, I don't know if I can do that. No agreement forces me not to share them, but I paid a lot for the bunch of carts I bought. Initially, they were just for private use or for trades with other distribution carts. But as a PhD student, with a rent to pay and all the various expenses, money can be tight, so sometimes I sell some carts because I need money. I'm afraid the carts would get devalued a lot in case the ROMs became public ( just like a lot of the DS ones), so at the moment I would not like to share them, but maybe in the future I will. I received some money offer for the ROMs but I'm not too keen on accepting them, I'd like to sell the carts. If anyone who buys the cart asks me for the ROM too I can send the ROM via dropbox so that he or she won't have to buy a Flash2Advance to dump it. You can contact me via PM and I can send you some screens of the mails and private messages on this forum between me, *EDITED* and Ben Smith if you want. I'd be really glad if you could modify the post of yours I quoted, maybe with just an edit at the end saying I explained everything in the following page. It's true, that was the deal.

  8. Hello, XJ55 here. A guy messaged me on eBay and told me what people were saying about me and I came here to defend myself. I have a bunch of distribution carts but I've never wanted to go public with it because I had to sign a legal agreement with the person who sold those to me, so I can't share or sell most of the ones I have. I met that person in real life in Rome a few years ago. I spent a lot for all of the carts, and sometimes I go to eBay and sell some of them. I can sell some carts without breaking the agreement because I bought multiple copies of some carts I already owned before meeting that person. They are 10ANNIV and Aurora Ticket. I bought a 10ANNIV from a forum around 5 years ago and the Aurora Ticket from a german guy from another forum around 4-5 years ago. I don't know who sold the 10ANNIV for 600€ but I'm sure who bought it at that price had a really good deal. False. The distribution carts are carts. They don't always come with a sealed GBA and Nintendo security stickers on them, but most of the times they were indeed like that at the event. Here is a pic of a "sealed" system I own: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6e4aqu1xfnlq50e/IMG_20160919_005332.jpg?dl=0 I had a few of systems like those. They were all special edition GBA SP ( Like Groudon Red in the pic or Torchic Orange) or normal GBA. I unsealed all of them but the one in the pic. As you can see, it can be easily "unsealed". It takes literally a minute. So yes, I unsealed some of the systems to keep the carts, because the carts are the distribution devices. But most of my carts came just as carts without any system, I bought them like that. There's no reason to buy them with the system attached. "Copying"? Fake carts? Altered files? I'd love to know how to do all that. I could have saved a lot of money instead of buying multiple copies of the same carts. I don't have enough programming notions to know how to modify carts. Hell, I even had trouble to find the "Mirage Island" by looking through my Ruby and Emerald sav file's hex. You can see my old posts and check that. I barely know how to program simple stuff in C, and I know that because I studied it in uni. And I have no idea how to copy carts either. I know some GBA distribution carts can be faked of course. All the MYSTRY Mew carts on eBay are fakes. The formula to generate MEWs is well known and putting .savs in retail carts can be easily done with a DS flashcart and a DS with a slot-2 port. But I sell different kinds of distribution carts, with a ROM in them and I'm not sure it can even be modified, it's a Read Only Memory. I have the ROMs of all my distribution devices because I do have a Flash2Advance cable. With that and my old Windows XP laptop I can dump the ROMs. I know how to do it because I received very detailed instruction on how to do it from the german guy I bought the Aurora Ticket from. Our deal was his cart for my 10ANNIV ROM + money. I googled the decchi.bin file and yes, it's exactly like my cart. I had no idea it was available online when I wanted to sell it and I'm truly sorry about that. I've never sold that cart and I never will. I've always thought that cart was strange, and in fact a few years ago a guy told me he had the azure flute file and I knew something was off with my cart I can tell you how I got that cart. Years ago, I didn't know much of Distribution carts and I probably had just the 10ANNIV and the Aurora Ticket. I used to talk with a guy on this forum, called *EDITED*. He told me he knew a guy with a slot-2 japanese distribution cart for sale. He told me it had weird "Japanese pokemon ranger text" when loaded in gba mode, but worked as a slot-2 distribution cart with japanese Diamond and Pearl. He told me it transferred a Charizard. So I contacted this guy through mail, and we had a deal: 2 of my distribution ROMs for his cart. Too good to be true! I was getting an extremely rare prototype for 2 roms, deal of the century I thought. I was very young and naive I guess? Anyway, I get the cart and it doesn't transfer the Charizard, but it transfers a working azure flute and I thought I had just gotten lucky. I posted it publicly on a forum to show and I got contacted privately by a guy claiming he had a rom that did the same thing as mine. The guy who sold me the cart, someone named Ben Smith I think, had told me only he and *EDITED* knew about him. So I contacted him again through mail a few weeks after the sale and his mail address had been deactivated. If you don't believe me, I can provide private mails and messages between me, *EDITED* and Ben Smith if they haven't been deleted yet. I don't know if that cart is fake or real. But if it's fake, it's probably *EDITED* who scammed me. I'm in my university town right now and I don't have all my stuff but a single box of pokemon related stuff I have, including what I'm selling now on eBay. Here's a pic of what I had in that box: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h1m3nnslef8ovbx/UPLOAD.jpg?dl=0 So this is it. When I heard about someone accusing me of "copying carts", making altered files and fake carts" I felt the need of explaining everything and spent over a hour during the night to write this. If you have any another questions you can ask me and I'll answer publicly. EDIT: Grammar fixes EDIT 2: I found all the mails and messages of *EDITED* and Ben Smith. If anyone who doubts me is interested, I can send everything. Publicly or Privately. EDIT 3: I edited the name of the scammer after around a month of keeping it unedited. I was reading the whole thread about your research, saw my post again and decided to edit because I don't want any flame to happen and now I don't really care anymore about this scammer, since it's been years since it happened.
  9. That's amazing, BlackShark! Thanks a lot for your work!
  10. Thanks. After some PMs we sent each other I was able to get there on my Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald Carts!
  11. Hello Bulbapedia says: "Every day, a random number between 0 and 65535 is generated by the game. If this number matches the last two bytes of the personality value of any of the Pokémon in the party (that is, the remainder when their personality value is divided by 65536), Mirage Island will appear for that day. " My Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald's batteries have run dry, so I think the random number generated will always be the same. How can I find out what is that number and check if any of my Pokémon's last two bytes of the personality value match that number or at least create a Pokémon whose last two bytes of the personality value match the Mirage Island number? Thanks
  12. Are we sure the Old Sea Map is legit? I can't see the Mystery Event option in this video: As you can see from here there should be the "Mystery Event" icon in the menu in order to receive the WonderCard.
  13. Yes, I saw it, but the Pal Park Bytes and Gen 4th Trash Bytes are wrong!
  14. I'm sorry for the language, I put the wrong pictures. The new ones are in english. My problem is not the SID, but it's the other errors. Give a look! The in-game ot is correct. It is 10ANNI. But why is Pokégen showing the wrong OT too?
