I'm not going to check a link to a random google drive URL against the html source of the downloads page to see if it's listed there. Even if I had thought to do such a random thing. And neither will anyone else. Thanks, but next time link to the download page instead

#2 Re: Support » Pokemon Platinum Save File Doubled in Size? » 2019-02-11 21:42:32

Sorry, I'm not going to let you link to random builds on google drive when we have a buildbot making all the latest up to date builds. Link to that instead.

#4 Re: Support » save state failed to load error » 2019-02-10 01:21:07

only people who had their system taking automated backups. the battery save may have become broken when you loaded the broken state. loading a fixed state would bring a fixed save file along with it.

#5 Re: Support » save state failed to load error » 2019-02-10 00:44:52

you think I racked up 4,897 posts NOT helping people?

But probably not in this case. First, because I don't think you're capable of delivering the required information. Second, because now it's seeming like some unknown external force corrupted your savestate.

#7 Re: Support » Pokemon Platinum Save File Doubled in Size? » 2019-02-09 21:55:13

that's not the latest desmume version, but thanks for saying which version you used.

#8 Re: Support » save state failed to load error » 2019-02-09 21:54:04

and your evidence that 999 hours has anything to do with it is....?

#9 Re: Support » save state failed to load error » 2019-02-09 16:03:51

you havent told me the whole story yet. you left your computer on for 999 hours, and then.....? you must have done something. saved in-game, or savestated, or something else.

#10 Re: Support » save state failed to load error » 2019-02-09 14:50:31

actually the most likely explanation is that you updated desmume versions and expected the savestates to be compatible

#11 Re: Support » save state failed to load error » 2019-02-09 07:51:24

there's no such thing as a .ds file, so I don't know what you mean.
I'm doubtful that 999 hours has to do with anything. Where did you get 999 from? Define "failed to load" error. Most likely explanation is your computer (for whatever reason) or your kid brother (for whatever reason) deleted your savestate file so that it's no longer there and can't be loaded. The savestate doesn't know anything about how many hours it's been, so that wouldnt affect whether it loads. You must have missed some other detail and jumped to a wrong conclusion.

#12 Re: Support » Pokemon Platinum Save File Doubled in Size? » 2019-02-09 06:27:15

i dont think so. but why are you invading someone else's thead?

#13 Re: Support » Pokemon Platinum Save File Doubled in Size? » 2019-02-09 05:05:29

Well, that's more plausibly a desmume bug than most of the other pokemon save file desmume bugs we hear about, which are more likely user error due to inept cheating and hacking, but there's nothing you can do about it.  Thanks for writing here though, it's a useful clue that somehow maybe savestating pokemon platinum can wreck the savefile. Can you tell me exactly which desmume version you're using (what URL you downloaded)?

If this all went down exactly as you describe, then you're -screwed- and will need to load an old 513KB .dsv or old savestate from backups, else you run risks from proceeding with corrupted files.

#14 Re: Support » how to convert saves in the latest version? » 2019-02-06 02:16:39

then your .duc converter is garbage. try file > import backup memory in desmume and choose the duc

#15 Re: Support » Can't open Desmume (resolved) » 2019-02-03 00:32:29

the link i sent earlier was for the 32bit desmume
use the 32bit desmume or install this … x?id=13523

#16 Re: Support » how to convert saves in the latest version? » 2019-02-02 20:11:09

desmume won't know to import the .sav unless its name matches the name of the .dsv exactly. look at the NameOfTheFile.dsv and delete it; then rename the sav to NameOfTheFile.sav. Now desmume will know how to import it. it should STILL drop out a .dsv, but this time it will contain the .sav it imported

#17 Re: Support » Can't open Desmume (resolved) » 2019-02-02 20:09:22

If those instructions didnt fix that error, then you aren't installing desmume 0.9.11 but rather some other version and you didnt tell me which one. tell me the download link

#18 Re: Support » how to convert saves in the latest version? » 2019-02-01 07:06:22

saves aren't in a ds0 format. savestates are in a ds0 format. you cannot turn a .duc (save file) into a savestate (.ds0 file). You must turn a .duc (save file) into a .dsv (save file) or a .sav (raw save file)

#19 Re: Support » iNDS to Desmume » 2019-01-31 01:04:59

just because the extension is .dsv does not mean it is in the correct format. Your procedure would have worked if it was a correct format .dsv. Open your file in notepad and see if it has a message at the end; thats how youll know it's correct-format DSV

#20 Re: Support » iNDS to Desmume » 2019-01-31 00:25:24

you can't just take a file from ??? and rename it to .dsv and hope it works. You need to find a converter online to convert it to raw save or desmume save format; if it's raw save, you can use file > import backup memory. Or you can just hope it's a raw save file already and rename it to .sav and import it. If importing it doesn't work, one thing to try (you can do this trick with any emulator) is to look where desmume drops the .dsv file it wants to create. close the emulator, delete that, and put the raw .sav in the same place. desmume may pick that up and auto-import it into its dsv format

This isn't the forum for desmume wii. Look elsewhere.

#22 Re: Technical » Ability To Copy RAM Search Results » 2019-01-22 05:19:40

The main reason we made bizhawk is so that it was less horribly painful adding more features to those tools.
My plan was to put desmume core in bizhawk, get the better tools automatically, and stop supporting windows frontend, but it's been a few years and that may still be a few more years...

#23 Re: Technical » Ability To Copy RAM Search Results » 2019-01-20 23:05:58

put a bug in github and maybe one of the guys who works on cheats and tools will do it, or maybe I will

#24 Re: Technical » Eliminate Option and Mass Select Feature for Cheat Search » 2019-01-20 10:23:47

Having a simpler version of an advanced tool is NOT an adequate justification to keep garbage around in desmume's already garbaged-up codebase. I'll leave it because fintogive asked me to but I'm not going to add features to it. If you put a bug on github, maybe one of the guys who works on cheats and tools will do it, but I will warn you now, I will edit your feature request for it to be complimentary to the cheat search dialog. For instance if you say "add a bulk eliminate button to the cheat search dialog" you will discover later that it says "add a bulk eliminate button to the complementary, wizard-like cheat search xanadu-like roses-smelling steak dinner dialog for fine people with discriminating tastes"
