Play Pokemon Diamond/Pearl On No$GBA [Saving Is Confirmed Working]
« on: Sunday April 22, 2007, 11:47:59 PM »
Note: This is a test on NDS Emulation.... Do not expect More. As it is Work - In - Progress.

Game Fully \"playable\" on Emulator.

NOTE: Game runs FULL SPEED ONLY During Battles and Houses
Game Lags/Runs Lower Speed in outside world (about 70% speed)

Step 1:

Download The Pokemon Emulator Package from GamersFire.net - Here
(Contains No$GBA, Pokemon Patch for Diamond/Pearl, and IPSWin to patch the game)

Step 2:

Unzip the following items in the same folder:

The Game (Pokemon Diamond/Pearl)

No$Cash
IPSWin
Pokemon Emulation Patch

Open IPSWin, First select the ROM Image, then second select the Patch, click Patch! to patch the rom!.
Delete old Rom Image. (You may also delete the patch and IPSWin)

Step 3:

Open No$GBA, Load Pokemon Diamond/Pearl.
After Loading, Do not play the game, immediatly go to Options>Emulation Set Up
Under NDS Cartridge Backup Media, select \"FLASH 512 KBytes\"
Next go to the Controls Tab in the same window, Select your Keyboard settings press ok.
NOTE: This step is VERY Important!! After you are done with the above go to Tools> SAVE OPTIONS

Step 4:

Go to File>Reset Cartridge,

Have fun playing :)[/spoiler]

Error messages:
Problem: \"the data could not be read. please turn off the power....\"
Solution: Redo step 3 making sure you change the save type.

I froze in a battle:
Enable/Disable sound.

Is full screen possible?:
No.

Screenshots from No$GBA Taken by me:

Yeah it runs slow, it runs at half speed inside houses, and at about 30% outside.
It's probably due to my weak GPU.

CPU: Intel P4 3.4 Dual Core
RAM: 1.5 GB
GPU: GeForce 6610 XL 128MB RAM

I haven't tried it on my Desktop yet. But I'm pretty sure it is not a PC Problem... It is probably an emulation problem...

Our normal everyday Desktop/Laptops shold be able to handle DS Emulation at full speed... It just needs more developing :D

Sorry for the BUMP but little update here:

If you set the settings for the NDS Emulation Options speed to "unlimited mhz - disaster 10%"

It should make it around 10-15% faster.

Also the myth about turning sound on and off ... really doesn't affect the overall speed of the emulation.

And on the iDeas notes: It can emulate Pearl/Diamond too but no sound support, and gfx are slower then No$GBA.

Oh and.. While I was playing... a freakin noob called me a noob... cause i have no badges :(



maybe its because I was carying a  lv 9 Magikarp.... *cries*

Ahhhhhh. Good times, good times. I bought red, blue, and yellow version on a multi-cart GBC cartridge that could hold like 20 games on them. You can only get them in Asia though, but the official copies are the real deal though. Anyway, I thought that when Gary was trying to fight you with Abra first on the bridge north of Cerulean city that it was kinda dumb how all it could do was use teleport. lol. The creators of Red and Blue should have made him a little more challenging during the early stages of the game like giving him more useful pokemon.  ;D

I believe they've made the AI better in this new game, especially the GYM trainers.

not sure about this problem specifically, but bear in mind that NDS emulation is flaky at best at the current time. I would guess this is more of an emulator problem than a rom problem, try tweaking your emulator configuration

I tried it on NOSGBA and it got stuck after the screen where the show at the beginning ends[that presentation thingy] and your mom tells you your friend came to meet you. There was like half a big blue screen on the top half of the emulator. Any advice?

You can't do much configuration to avoid such problems, usually it's just the save type or sound settings which can mess it up etc.

if the battle doesnt end and your game freases, please turn Sound ON. No$GBA is scanning to see if the sound input is present at the end of the battle. Therefore it will continue the game after that.

Ok, I need some help with this, as I'm having trouble saving. I only downloaded Pokemon Pearl, and I've been able to play it, but the game won't save. It says it will, but when I exit the program and load it again, it'll just send me back to the beginning. I tried re-downloading Pokemon Pearl, but the same thing happened again. Anyone have any ideas what to do, or am I just missing something?

If you're trying to emulate it then make sure you followed the guide in the first post.

If you're using a flash card then you have to make sure you set the save type to the maxium to avoid problems.

I've been doing what the guide says to do, so that isn't my problem.

I dunno then, if you applied the IPS patch then it should be working. =/
NDS emulation is in the very early stages though, it could be an unlucky hardware combination, although unlikely.

Well, thanks for your help then. Maybe I'll try Diamond and see if I have better luck.
