  1. If you get around to taking a look at it, I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know what you think.
  2. When you say you have doubts about it being legit, which save file are you referring to - the one on GameFAQs or the one I linked to in the 3rd post? The one on GameFAQs is from 2004, and being so close to the event dates (and likely before we had discovered how to to inject Wonder Cards) is a decent reason to believe it's legit IMO.
  3. I found a site that can do it for DS games, but not GBA; that feature hasn't been added yet. Do you know what type of GBA Gameshark I would need to restore the save? I see two different types (1, 2).
  4. Thanks. Unfortunately I need it in the form of a .SAV file, and I don't work with emulation (as far as I know, using an emulator is the only way to convert .SPS into .SAV). Is there anything else I can do?
  5. Thanks. I did run across this. In the description, the author claims to have gotten the AuroraTicket from the PCNY. Any thoughts on its legitimacy?
  6. I'm looking for a save file for FR/LG/E with an Aurora Ticket (with the corresponding Deoxys not yet caught) that was obtained from one of the official events back in 2004/2005. I know the NA version of the ticket has leaked and anyone can get it (and that one such will be indistinguishable from an "authentic" one), but I'm looking for one that was obtained directly from the actual event, if possible. Thanks.
  7. I'm familiar with the two save banks; however, I wasn't aware that I had a choice in which one I edited. How do I change between them in PkHeX?
  8. Awhile back, I edited my game's playtime in PkHeX to force the checksum to be a value that yields a shiny Jirachi from the Colosseum Bonus Disc. I'm trying to do that again; however, I'm not sure what exactly I did the first time, and I'm having a bit of difficulty. Here's what I'm doing: 1. I open the .sav in HxD Hex Editor and locate the checksum. 2. I open the .sav in PkHeX and edit the playtime. 3. I go to File -> Export SAV -> Main and save my file. 4. I locate the file and manually add .sav to the file name. 5. I open the new file in HxD, browse to the same location I found the checksum at in step 1, and view it. The checksum doesn't change though. Why would this be? Am I doing something wrong? I know if I do it properly it should change since I've done this before (with an earlier version of PkHeX).
  9. I took the very first value in HxD (block 00 in offset 0) and changed it to 01, but after opening in PKHeX and saving, my checksum did not change. Why would this be? And thanks! EDIT: I did, however, get the checksum to 00 F5 by changing my TID to 44405 (and keeping my SID the same at 40171). How can I tell if this is a valid TID/SID combo given the vast amount of seeds that could be obtained with a live battery? The only way I can think of is to search each minute of each hour of each calendar day, which is impossible. EDIT2: I got the checksum to 00 F5 by changing my game time to 5 hr 26 min 30 sec. EDIT3: I GOT IT! Thanks everyone for all your help!
  10. Thanks for the explanation! So how do I know what to change the playtime to? Do I have to just tweak it, check the checksum in HxD, and repeat until I get my desired checksum? Also: 1) I don't know about all, but I would think there would be a lofty combination of TID/SID in R/S if there is a live battery at the point of generation, as that gives R/S more seeds to work with. 2) The Jirachi bonus disc is only compatible with R/S.
  11. Okay. So you're saying to change that block first, rather than directly changing my checksum to 00F5? How do I know what to change that block to (either manually in a hex editor, or by changing something in PKHeX)?
  12. Pardon my ignorance, but would you mind explaining how PKHeX regenerates the checksum? I don't see an option for it.
  13. I found my checksum in HxD hex editor at line 2FF0. It's EDED (pic). I'm sure this is it because I claimed a Jirachi whose seed is EDED. My target Jirachi has a seed of F500. I changed EDED to 00F5, then loaded my game in PKHeX. I used the "Verify Checksums" option, and it outputted the following to the clipboard: Block 00 @ 02000 invalid. That block contains the value C8 (pic). What should I change this to so that my checksum is valid? I've looked for guides on hex editing, but haven't come up with anything for Ruby/Sapphire.
  14. Thanks for your reply. What programs did you use for hex editing and checksum regeneration? Also, would you mind explaining to me (or pointing me to the proper resources) how it changes?
  15. I was told that it was possible to edit the checksum in a Ruby or Sapphire save file using a save editor to cause the Colosseum Bonus Disc to give me a shiny Jirachi (or any other Jirachi of my choice out of the possible 65536). Is this something that can be done with PKHex? I opened up a save file with it and I don't see an option to edit the checksum (only an option to verify it). Also, the same source told me that I may need to edit other variables so that my checksum remains valid, or else the disc will catch that I have an invalid checksum and won't give me the Jirachi. What would I need to edit? I've attempted to RNG this Jirachi with no luck, so I've used rschecksum before. Do I need to edit my information in PkHex so that it matches whatever info in rschecksum which causes the output seed to be the seed of the desired Jirachi? Is this my checksum? rschecksum also uses several other variables (starter, Pokémon encountered, time in game, clock setting game options) in computing my output seed, so I'm not sure how I would account for these in a save editor. Any and all help is appreciated! EDIT: Alternatively, what I may do is play through until I get the Pokédex and Running Shoes, save once at a predetermined point using EonTimer (leaving the other save bank blank) and backup my save. When viewing my save in a save editor, I'd like to know how far off I am, so how can I simply view the checksum so that I can see how long I should open the game before I save again? When I do save again, I can then view my checksum again and see if it's what I want it to be. If it is, I get the Jirachi. If it's not, I restore the save file from my initial backup, and try again.
