It is a FULLY working DS emulator, I am having trouble on 1 part though. I am playing the new pokemon (diamond) and as soon as I go to battle my "Rival" guy that I chose from the beginning, I kill his Starly and the game freezes and won't keep going.
(this is after I got the 2nd badge, according to a guide he has a Starly no matter what but the rest of his pokemon depend on what you started with)

My guess is because that to determine which pokemon he has, it has to determine which one I chose at the beginning and screws up some where around there.

If anyone could help, much appreciated!

What emulator are you using? As a matter of fact I've encountered the same problem with Starly crashing the game, though, in a different place. It seems Starly's game file causes the emulator or the rom to crash, perhaps due to corruption or maybe illegal operations. The only thing I can suggest is trying your savegame on a different emulator. If you say its fully working, then it can't be that the emulator is crashing, but it is always a possibility. By the way, I also have problems saving the game every now and then, how'd you overcome that?

I downloaded all the pieces of the puzzle:

The Emulator no$gba 2.4
The Rom
The Bios

now the problem is that when i run the game. It says, Data couldn't be read. Replace cartridge and reset the DS. What could be the problem?

REmember this.

Change the speed.Im using version 2.4a and in the Options/Emulation
There says ``none``.You should change the speed to FLASH 256.
This way many of your other roms will work.Just like YuGi-Oh! GX Spirit Caller.If u want a bit faster game the first one where it seas something like 16 Mhz...chance it to the last one that seas 10%

Its against forum rules to post emails and also type in all CAP. But for your problem there is a patched Rom and Emulator somewhere on bit torrents. I think i seen it on torrentspy.com named Pokemon Diamond and Pearl English with emulator working

Hey guys, just an update, I'm running Pokemon Diamond as well as Pearl perfectly. Go and download No$GBA 2.4b, then the NDS bios, the firmware, then the rom. Go to options, then emulation options. Set the sound output to 'Digital Mono(fast)', the sample rate to 'Low (10khz)(fast)', set the NDS cartridge backup media to 'FLASH 512KBytes'. Those were the changes I made, and the game just flowed. The early areas will drag, but hang in there, or otherwise try the emulation speed 'Ultimate MHZ disaster 50%'. I've been playing for three says now, and as of yet haven't had a single probelm oter than when I tried linking, which is a bit tricky at the moment. Note: you MUST HAVE SOUND ENABLED when you play the game, no matter how annoying it can get. Having the sound off causes alot of crashing.. There you go, enjoy..

Hello,

I've downloaded all the parts onto my desktop, what do I do with them to make the game work?

I try opening the rom straight into NO$GBA or whatever and it says

The data could no be read. Please turn off the power, then remove and reinsert the DS Game Card.


?? what do i have to configure?

Okay, you need to put the BIOS files and the firmware file in the folder where NO$GBA is. Remember to set the options as I said in my previous message. Oh, I forgot to mention that ROMs are usually encrypted, which means that you will need to remove the protection (decrypt) them. You can do this with an app called eNDryptS Advance, which you can find at mxemu.com, or through Google. Run the app, then hit 1 when it gives you a list of options. Then exit, open NO$GBA, and run your ROM. It should work, provided your system can handle it.

I was wondering whenever you save the game, does it create a .sav file because i want to overwrite it with pokesav
#16
when you save the game the .sav file is in the battery folder. But you will need to change a few things.
Change the NO$GBA config settings. open the file in notepad. it should say SAV/SNA File Format == Compressed somewhere near the bottom change it to SAV/SNA File Format == Uncompressed save then close it. Then you will need NO$GBA to VBA to convert the save file every time before you use pokesav. Also NO$GBA to vba can change the SAV/SNA File Format == Uncompressed if u direct it to the battery folde cick the button/

Hi I'm kinda new to this emu and already got a big problem.Does the save file works for pokemon D/P only or does it work for other game too, caue atleast 3 out of 5 of my roms can't be saved or snap.
#18
The emulator works for different ds games not just pokemon...but the emulator is still a work in progress so it is still very buggy. like i said some roms need some patching to work correctly in the emulator. Gotta google it cause every game is different

I'm having major troubles with my Rom and Emu...
at first i couldnt get past the first starly without the game crashing and then i fixed that by changing the sound part in Emulation options.

BUT...

now whenever i try to load the game it just goes black and freezes does nothing!

I've downloaded everything that CaViE said to and it hasn't helped
could someone help me out or could someone make me a folder with the emulator, roms, patches etc... that i can just click and play =]
that would really help me!

thanx
#22
I've tried until the part where vcbc says to change the SAV to uncompress, but i don't get the "Then you will need NO$GBA to VBA to convert the save file every time before you use pokesav. Also NO$GBA to vba can change the SAV/SNA File Format == Uncompressed if u direct it to the battery folde cick the button/" part. Can someone pls explain.

Okay, I had this problem as well in the past. Downloading version 2.4b solved it. I made no other change. Again I'll say, sometimes the problem is system related. If, however, your system should be running it, then have you perhaps tried downloading Pokemon Pearl and trying that out instead? I have both, but I'm playing Pearl, purely because I mixed them up and got too far on the first day for me to go back and start again on Diamond. Remember also that your save type for NDS roms must be the FLASH 512KBytes option. Other than that, I'm sorry, but I can't help you. But I'll see if I can find you a work-around.

Yea i was kinda lazy to explain. Just download No$Gba to VBA. Open the program up click configure then navigate to the no$gba battery folder. then click save config then click configure again and click change No$Gba.INI It should say change when done correctly. then u can close the configure box. click refresh. there should be a name there. (Well if u have a save file) click on it and click convert file!. it should convert into a new file. Use Pokesav to modify that new .sav file. when done delete all sav files(or put them in different folders for backup) and then rename the modified .sav file with the same name as the unmodified .sav file.
