  1. I did have some trouble with an updated hekate and a sorely outdated atmosphere. I'm not very good at CFW, haha.

    Which might explain what happened- after a save comparison, it turns out that it didn't wipe anything. It just grabbed the last save file I made before I had installed CFW. I... don't know how or why it did that. Reimporting my last save worked a charm!

  2. Well, I'm also pretty darn confused, but I gave myself a shiny morpeko and a full set of alcreamie and everything is GONE.


    EDIT: Whoops, sorry, should I upload my backup and my new save? I can do that if you need. I'm going to try reimporting the backup with checkpoint and seeing what happens.

    Update: I created a mini-program that hopefully rips saves out from the bootleg ROM. Program here.

    So far, it works on your copy (from what I can tell).


    The saves dumped by the program is also more accurate then the ones I sent you;
    the saves I sent you doesn't work when imported into an emulator, but the ones this program dumps does.

    You are the hero of our times. Praise.

    I used the these bytes to try to find the save

    from here

    Once I find that part in your save, I take the first address of the 0xFF, and minus 0x1E000 from it, so that I find the starting address of the save. That's how I got the two locations in prev post.

    (not sure you saw it, but I added in a part that both saves seems to be the same)


    I'm also not sure that the saves are in fixed spots. Any further dumps may have them in a different point, so you can use that method to search.

    Anyhow, the two files

    Again, thank you so much! I'm really not good at this, so I appreciate you taking the time and effort to hand-hold me.

    Erm, that's if we assume the data you sent isn't an encrypted save.

    Otherwise, the data you sent it garbage data and isn't the save.

    If you can hex edit the rom, try looking for the save inside. or screenshot any area that have blank spaces and data at the end, that might be the footer of the save.

    Also take a look at the bulbapedia link I sent you, to help you figure out if it is or isn't a save.


    edit: Your save is in the game you uploaded (but I removed). Location..

    This is your save, right?

    There it is! That's my save!

    So the moral of the story is that I just suck at breaking into the rom lmao. Thank you!

  6. I hope this is the right forum.

    I've run into an interesting situation with a bootleg. From what I'd found with research, most R/S/E bootlegs flash the save directly to the game files, so if you rip the ROM and boot it up with an emulator, you can access your save file that way. This one didn't have a PKHex-recognizable save, even though it wasn't bringing up an empty save like those bootlegs usually do, and the save wasn't part of the ROM, so I ended up contacting the bootleggers directly (I bought a special edition Kyogre gameboy, and got the bootleg sapphire as a freebie with the gameboy, and checking their site indicated that they don't pretend that their reproductions are original cartridges).

    They say that they added a save chip- it's just apparently not compatible with PKHex or Pokemon Diamond.

    FWIW, as far as bootlegs go, this was a pretty well-done one. It's got a battery, and it had me totally fooled until I checked the label.

    I don't have a special screwdriver yet, but I'm thinking of ordering one just to take this apart. In the meantime, does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do with the bootleg?

  7. Got it out of wonder box, and to wonder box I regret to inform you it has returned. After having to gen my shiny collection from scratch after it got wiped, I'm leery of doing something to attract the Eye Of TPC.

    (I mean, right now everyone's on my ultra sun cart with a backup saved to the laptop, so they're for sure safe, but I may still have to transfer them through Home eventually, yanno?)

    PKHeX doesn't have checks in place for the Home gifts yet. If you obtained these yourself, you don't have to worry about them. It will get added to a later version of PKHeX.

    I was pretty sure that's what was going on, but I figured it couldn't hurt to yeet the files here anyways.
