How to unlock a locked Rom

I feel like i didn't search deep enough or missed out on some YouTube Videos, and also i might be a ignorant disturbance...

But regardless, for some reason my Pokemon Conquest rom locked randomly this morning, or at least i think it did. The save file just locked me out entirely. I had to remove it from the emulator's files to make it run normally again.

But i wonder, if there's some universal coding hack to remove the lock in the future. Because even the website "https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki … n_Conquest" denoted that the game locks when it detects when it was run by a emulator. So i don't know how to either avoid or stop it.
     As it states on the third note: "If the game detects it is being played on an emulator or flashcard, the game will lock when booted."

I don't know what "locked" means.

It's a literal "lock", when the rom is detected that it is on a emulator, an unlicenced item, rather then an actual DS. The game's programming will stop the game from playing.

Re: How to unlock a locked Rom

I doubt it is a literal "lock". what is there a sprite of a padlock?

you may be using an ancient version of desmume which is more vulnerable to anti-piracy checks
you may need to find an anti-piracy patch or cheat
