  1. This tutorial will show you how and where to access your save files while using a GBA emulator. This guide will cover 3 of the most popular emulators for running GBA games: Visual Boy Advance, NO$GBA (Computer), and My Boy! (Android). This guide assumes that you have already set up and played one of these emulators at least once. Scroll down to your emulator of choice. This is not a setup guide. This guide is meant to show where to find or inject your save files. Visual Boy Advance: 1. Navigate to the folder that your games are located in. 2. Open the folder and your save should be inside with the same name as your desired game with the file extension (.SAV) instead of the file extension (.GBA) 3. MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FILE BEFORE USING OR EDITING IT WITH ANY SAVE EDITORS. NO$GBA: 1. Navigate to the folder that NO$GBA is located in. Then open the folder called "BATTERY" 2. Inside the "BATTERY" folder should be your save files. 3. MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FILE BEFORE USING OR EDITING IT WITH ANY SAVE EDITORS 4. Although the save type given by NO$GBA appears to be the standard (.SAV) file type, all saves created and used by NO$GBA will need to be converted to the proper (.SAV) file type to maximize compatibility with emulators, programs such as PKHeX, and reduce possible errors you may encounter. My Boy!: 1. Either plug your Android device into your computer or open a file browser on your Android device 2. Navigate to the "MyBoy" folder on your Android device (normally located on the device memory not the SD-Card) 3. Open the "MyBoy" folder. Then open the "save" folder 4. Inside the "save" folder should be your save files. 5. MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FILE BEFORE USING OR EDITING IT WITH ANY SAVE EDITORS. View full tutorial

  11. Hey not sure if you ever got that save but here is mine. Just fly to golden rod city, enter the pokemon center, go upstairs, then go to exit the pokemon center and the event will begin. I edited the OT info so I would suggest you change it to your own. Then just inject it into the VC. sav.dat
  12. Hey @Regnum Im not sure if you ever figured this out but I was able to get it working. I think it was a combination of where you were on the map (a Pokemon center) and maybe some of the conversion I just did with VBA. Anyway here is your save. I just injected it into my VC Red and it is working. So make any changes you want to this save file and then inject it and it should work.? sav.dat
  13. If you still havent figured it out. @theSLAYER made a tool a few weeks ago to help with this problem
  14. I know this is an old post but for future reference, all you need to do is right click the game you have a save for and click "Open Save Data Location" ?
  15. This tutorial will show you how to backup your DS cartridge save using a 3ds homebrew program called Checkpoint. 1. Insert your cartridge, and make sure the 3DS menu can see it. This is important because sometimes the system can't read the cartridge unless it's inserted just right. 2. Launch Checkpoint. 3. Use the DPad to select the game with the "DS" logo on it. Then press A to select the game. 4. Use the DPad to select the save slot you wish to use (the selected slot has a blue background). If backing up the save, you can select "New..." to create a new slot. Be careful not to overwrite anything important. 5. Press either the Backup or Restore button on the touch screen. 6. Press "A" to confirm 7. If you chose to create a new save slot, use the on-screen keyboard to give it a name, then press "OK". 8. If the save was exported correctly you should see a success message appear. 10. Your backup or restore is complete. Exit Checkpoint, and your save should be located on your SD card under /3ds/Checkpoint/saves/(your game)/(your save slot). 11.

  16. This tutorial will teach you the basics of creating as well as managing a Pokemon database in PKHeX. Using a Pokemon database streamlines the process of backing up, preserving, and organizing any size of Pokemon collection making it a very useful and powerful feature to take advantage of. 1. In the same folder that PKHeX is located, create a new folder called "pkmdb" 2. There are 2 ways of organizing your Pokemon database. The first way is to Place all of the pk files into the database folder without folders. This is useful for seeing all Pokemon with the same species grouped together by default Note:Because the Database sorts the default view by A-Z, files will not be in generational order (Gen 1-7) but instead file A-Z order. This may cause inconsistencies in the order of Pokemon. The second way of organizing your Pokemon database is by organizing your Pokemon into certain folders with other criteria. This is useful for collections like living dexes or shiny Pokemon vs non shiny since with this method, Pokemon are grouped by folder A-Z instead of File A-Z. 3. Once your Pokemon are organized in your preferred style, your Pokemon database is ready to use. On the side of the database are search criteria to narrow your search of Pokemon. Enter in your search criteria and click the "Search" Button. In this test search I have selected to only show Adamant Nature Pokemon that are in the pk7 format. After you click "Search" your filtered results should appear. 4. Once you are satisfied with your search results, you can click on "Tools" to either export the results of your search to a folder of your choosing on your computer, or you can import the results of your search into the current box of the save you have loaded. For this demonstration I will be showing the import feature. The export feature is very easy to use and self explanatory. 5. Follow the prompts (Most likely you will only need to click "yes" for all of the prompts) and an alert will pop up confirming that the Pokemon have been loaded into your save. 6. Close all prompts and close the database window. Once you are back in PKHeX, you should see your results that you exported in your PC boxes like normal. 7. For more advance search criteria, open the Pokemon database and navigate to "Tools/Search Settings" and click on the "Advanced Search" Option. You will see a text box appear next to the simple search criteria. After you have enabled the "Advanced Search" box, you can input whatever search criteria you want. Note: the search criteria format is the same as the "Batch Editor". You can find an in-depth tutorial on the Batch Editor Here. Once you are satisfied with your search criteria, you can click "search" the same way as with the simple criteria. View full tutorial

  18. This guide will show you how to add the Pokemon cry sounds into PKHeX. With this feature, every time you hover over a Pokemon in PKHeX, it's cry will play. 1. In the same folder that PKHeX is located, create a new folder called "sounds" 2. Place your Pokemon cries into the "sounds" folder. Make sure the cries are in the ".wav" format with the following naming format. 1.wav = Bulbasaur 649.wav = Genesect Pokemon with different cries for alternate forms are 492.wav = Shaymin 492-1.wav = Shaymin Sky Form 3. Open PKHeX and verify that the cries are being played properly by hovering your mouse cursor over a Pokemon in any box. If the cry does not play, verify that you are running the latest build of PKHeX. Also verify that the "Play PKM Slot Cry on Hover" setting is turned on by going to "Options>>Settings"

  20. Works great Thanks. Just to make clear for future reference 1.wav = Bulbasaur 649.wav = Genesect pokemon with different cries for alternate forms are 492.wav = Shaymin 492-1.wav = Shaymin Sky Form
  21. I just tried and I wasnt able to get it to work. Im not sure but I also saw this on the new change resource = $"{pk.Species}"; - path = Path.Combine("sounds", $"{resource}.wav") So does that mean that the cry needs to be called pk.Species 1.wav or pk.Bulbasaur.wav I tried both and what you said but nothing is working.
  22. Hi. I just wanted to know how to use the new pokemon cries feature. I have all of the wav files and I know you need to make a "sounds" folder but what is the naming structure for the pokemon cries.
  23. This tutorial is still here, in case people have Checkpoint, are on the lower firmwares, and Pokémon is on a lower game version. If you have any of the newer firmware and/or game version, use JKSV instead. In this tutorial you will learn how to back up your Nintendo switch saves using a homebrew program called Checkpoint. The latest version of Checkpoint can be downloaded from here. Note: This guide is meant for CFW emuNAND extracting from/importing to CFW emuNAND, or CFW sysNAND extracting from/importing to CFW sysNAND. It's not meant for CFW emuNAND extracting from/importing to Stock sysNAND. In this unintended case, it may work for some of the readers, but note that the sysNAND and emuNAND may unlink at any time, causing this unintended consequence to stop working. The only real fix that we know thus far, is creating a new emuNAND using the present sysNAND. 0. Download Checkpoint.nro from their Github page, from the latest release. Then place it into the Switch folder of your SD card. 1. Launch the Homebrew Menu from your Switch and look for Checkpoint. Then launch Checkpoint by pressing "A" 2. Navigate to your desired game 3. Press "A" to select your desired game. If you are in docked mode click "L" to start the backup process. If you are in handheld mode either click "L" or click on the "Backup" button on the touch screen. 4. If you are in docked mode click "A" to confirm the backup. If you are in handheld mode either click "A" or click on the "Yes" button on the touch screen. 5. Enter a name for your new save. Then click on the "OK" button to complete the backup process. 6. If the backup has completed you will see a success message appear as well as a new save with the name you chose under your desired game. 7. Turn your Switch off, insert your SD card into your computer and Navigate to "Switch//Checkpoint//saves". Then find your desired game in the list of games. 8. Open your desired game's folder. Inside will be the folder you named in step 5. Note: this folder will contain all of the subsequent backups you make of this game. 9. Navigate through the folder of the backup you created and eventually you will get to your save file. Note: this step may be different and the resulting save file may be different depending on the game you have chosen. 10. MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FILE BEFORE USING OR EDITING IT WITH ANY SAVE EDITORS. Note: LGPE -> savedata.bin SWSH -> main, backup and poke_trade. Use main with PKHeX. Note: Switch Cartridges do not store saves. So whether physical or digital copy, the saves all goes into your Switch, and that is what this tool is dumping.
