Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver Black Screen and Freezing Issues.
« on: Thursday September 10, 2009, 01:51:18 PM »
Please notice this thread is about the JAPANESE version of the game.

I wanna ask, has someone encountered the black screen problem, i get the instant black screen after the creation of a character in both pokemon games *heart gold and soul silver*?

There is a translation project hosted on these forums.  This project has translated ROMs and ROMs that are prepatched with the anti-freeze patches.

http://www.romulation.net/forum/index.php?topic=23083.0

Please feel free to add info on working setups to this thread for consolidation.

UPDATE:



HERE IT IS! Pokemon Soul Silver & Pokemon Heart Gold 100% WORKING PATCH for NO$GBA!:



thanks to everyone who helped out.

My guess is this is about the new pokemon game right?

I think they stopped updating this emulator-so it may be partially incompatibily.

Could you confirm what game your having trouble with?

Oh, I forget to mention it! silly me.

it's Pokemon Soul Silver and guess the other version has the same problem.

My guess is incompatibility-you do realise it's been ages since last update...


If there is a fix or work around (may not be perfect) someone PLEASE let us know.


I unfortunatly don't have it (being in jap is no fun) and I stopped using emulator's for ds for this reason-if you got the cash try a flash cart-if not...then hope someone here has the answer-but don't get your hopes up :(

I still reckon it's INCOMPATABILITY.

The emulators are over a year old without updates-so good chance I'm right (for once).

The game crashes anyway. I believe they're anti-piracy checks throughout the game because it freezes during certain points. It froze for me on Route 30 with an R4 and YSMenu on both games.

So it could be a bit of both errors...

Would an "arm7" patch cure it?

You can't do anything as of now. It has just been dumped and released, wait for a few days (or even longer O.o) for a fix. ;D

-I'm playing it on desmume but my mouse doesn't work with it :(

I actually found something for the emulator guys.

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=960099&topic=51303541

I was able to play Heartgold and Soulsilver on my NO$GBA with only one graphical error to report. The second time you visit your mom before leaving town she gives you an item. After I walked out from my house, My main charcter looked all blocky and glitch right. Then I walked into another building and everything was normal. I left and everything was normal. I battled two pidgeys and just stopped playing. I want this to work for my NO$zoomer (which it doesn't, but NO$GBA 2.6 yea) but if you aren't an obsessed, gotta have it a certain way person then I can show you the links and such to get this to work.

I think flash carts only would suggest no, nothing for emulators yet. At least no no cash, haven't tried ideas and desmume.

Sorry about being a noob but when a press 1 in the eNDcryptS,it says ''Windows couldn't open PatchEngine.dat''.After that it patches the ROM normally then run the ROM and follow the instructions:
                                         
''-Extract firmware/bios files to no$gba folder
-Put ROM in encrypt folder
-Run encrypter
-Press 1

-Run no$gba and open the (now encrypted) ROM
-AS SOON AS THE FILE BOX CLOSES (while the screens are still white)
open the emulation options (F11) and change the option under
"Reset/Startup Entrypoint" to GBA BIOS. After hitting OK,
immediately reset the game (numpad *). If you did it right, you'll
see the DS menu as you would on a real DS. Play it normally from there.
If you reset too late, or use an unencrypted ROM, it will crash.

Make sure the save type is set to automatic (2.6a).''

Then when the DS start screen appears,I choose the game,but then it says the ''FATAL!The ROM image has crashed''.

What am I doing wrong? :(
