DesMuMe Conversion Process

Dear All,

First and foremost I would like to apologies if this question is not posted in the correct section - I tried with my best ability if it was or not but couldn't reach a coherent conclusion. Also DesMuMe works surprisingly well (first time user) great jobs from the devs.

My Issue (1):

As some of you might know Apple has completely eradicated the usage of GBA4IOS and INDS on their devices without developer key or using the Buildstore. Due to having experienced a moment of nostalgia me and some friends decided to purchase a BuildStore account and started playing on the iNDS version Heart Gold (Pokemon) and Soul Silver (Pokemon). After conquering the first region before the Final Four and battling the Champion there were no issues but after the game automatically quits post match when you beat the champion a white screen appeared and couldn't be removed to return to the original loading screen of Lugia or Ho-Oh.

I tried some stuff myself and got the file working on the DesMUMe version but then could not get said file working on the actual iNDS using the Dropbox and conversion (shunyweb) feature respectively. If someone could help me with that it would be hugely appreciated.

Tl;Dr - Convert DesMuMe save file to iNDS Emulator for iPad (from Buildstore)

My Issue (2):

Me and my friends all own DS Consoles (some with the original cards and some with AceKard 2i or N5). Mine did not work properly so I decided to play using my IPAd but the original goal was to eventually be able to export the data back into the AceKard 2i. I tried several methods on the internet regarding the conversion from DesMumMe as everything works very well on it (kudos to the developers really nice work here). But I can't get the converted file to work on AceKard 2i (tried Shunyweb etc.), if someone could help that would be hugely appreciated as it seams that is the only possible way to actually play my friends 1v1 2v2 etc.

Save file always seems to be read when opening the game initially showing stats (playing time, pokemon caught etc.) but when entering the actual world fades to black and stays black.

Tl;Dr - convert DesMuMe save file to AceKard 2i or N5 Card

Re: DesMuMe Conversion Process

I've never heard of iNDS before. If it's a fork of desmume then there's no "conversion" required.

The converters are all trash. Open the .dsv in a hex editor and scroll to the end. Follow the instructions.

Hey,

First of all thanks for your quick reply and sharing of knowledge.

It indeed is, as when I checked with the HEX tool the data were identical and it mentioned DesMuMe. Hence I presume it is an altered version for Apple Products.

Downloaded a HEX editor and as you said instructions were pretty straight forward, thank you. But the issue prevails it seems to work on other games as I tried but not on Soul Silver (tried Heart Gold quickly but again before beating the Poke Liga).

Could I possibly send you the save file for you to take a look? Or do you have any other ideas on that particular issue?

Thanks advance.

Re: DesMuMe Conversion Process

Can you actually load your in-game save in desmume? That is, without using savestates? Based on what youre saying, it shouldn't be possible, because it's just broken. That usually happens from cheating. I've never seen proof that it can happen any other way.
