      TRANSLATION SECTION

      ///How to translate pokemon Black and White into English V7///
      This uses the Pokemon Black and White Translation Project patch files and is to translate B/W from Japanese to English
      1. Download my Pokemon B/W tools, my Pokemon B/W patches and a clean rom of B/W from the links provided
      2. Extract all archives onto your desktop
      3. Go into the folder called 'Tools' and then 'xDelta Translator and .exp patch'
      4. Once in the folder, run the program 'xDelta GUI.exe'
      5. When the program starts up, click 'select patch'
      6. Browse to your desktop and then into the folder called 'Patches'. Then select the translation patch file that corresponds with your game(eg. white game and white patch)
      7. Once you have done that, click 'Select ROM'
      8. Browse to the desktop and find the extracted Pokemon B/W rom (.nds file)
      9. Once they have both been selected, click 'apply patch'
      10. Wait for a while for the program to run, eventually there should be a rom file with _patched at the end. That is the patched rom.
      11. If you cannot find the rom, try looking on the desktop for a file called xdelta patched.nds or something, that is your patched rom.
      12. You have now successfully patched your pokemon black/white rom into English!

      *The version of the translation patch that is used in this tutorial is V7, and the specific patches are 'V7Black-NewLogo' and 'V7White-NewLogo'. There is also six other versions of the V6 patch and they are:
      V7Black-NewLogo-Kata
      V7Black-OldLogo
      V7Black-OldLogo-Kata
      V7White-NewLogo-Kata
      V7White-OldLogo
      V7White-OldLogo-Kata
      I will try to get the download links for these soon, I do not belive you will need them, but it is always good to have a backup. You install them the same way as the ones in the tutorial

      ANTI-PIRACY SECTION

      ///How to fix general freezing in B/W (Anti-Piracy patch)///
      This tutorial uses Rudolph's Universal Child's Play Patch and is to fix general freezing in the game

      2. Go into the folder called 'Tools', and then the one called 'Rudolph Anti-Piracy Patch'
      3. Drag the rom (.nds file) you want to patch onto the corresponding patching program (eg. pokemon white rom onto pokemon white patch)
      4. Wait for a 'congratulations' message to appear, when it does, that means that your rom is patched
      5. You will see a file with .bak on the end. Delete this, you do not need it.
      6. The remaining .nds file is patched!

      ///How to fix no exp. gain problem///
      This uses the RakuRaku Hex Patch (method 1) and Kiekoes' xDelta Patch (method 2) and is to fix exp. gain problems
      Method 1:

    7. Once you have pasted the code in the box, click 'run'
    8. Eventually a message with code in it will appear, just click ok
    9. The remaining .nds file is patched, if this method fails, try method 2 below.

    Method 2:
    1. Make sure you have both my pokemon B/W tools and my pokemon B/W patches files at hand
    2. Extract the two archives to your desktop. Go into the folder called 'Tools' and then the one called 'xDelta Translator and .exp patch'
    3. Once in the folder, run the program 'xDelta GUI.exe'
    4. When the program starts up, click 'select patch'
    5. Browse to your desktop and then into the folder called 'Patches' and then select the exp patch that correspond with your game (eg. white game and white patch)
    6. Once you have done that, click 'Select ROM'
    7. Browse to your Pokemon B/W rom (.nds file) that you want to patch
    8. Once they have both been selected, click 'apply patch'
    9. Wait for a while for the program to run, eventually there should be a rom file with _patched at the end. That is the patched rom.
    10. If you cannot find the rom, try looking on the desktop for a file called xdelta patched.nds or something, that is your patched rom.
    11. If you cannot find a new rom, then the one you selected is probably patched. If it is not, try the alternative method.
    11. You should have now successfully patched your pokemon black/white rom!

    ///How to fix universal errors (ERROR=-4, ERROR=-5 etc.)///
    This uses eNDryptS to decrypt the B/W rom and replacement TTDS firmware to fix rom error codes
    *Please note you need to have YSmenu pre-installed on your SD card for this to work, if you do not then read my tutorial called '///How to play Pokemon B/W on R4 clones (R4 III, R4 Gold, R4 sdhc)///'. If that does not work then try follow my tutorial called '///How to play pokemon B/W on R4i/R4i sdhc (may work on other carts also):///' to install a slightly modified version of YSmenu
    1. Make sure you have 'My Pokemon B/W Tools' file and the 'My Pokemon B/W Firmware' file
    2. Extract both to your desktop
    3. Go into the folder called 'Tools' and then the one called 'eNDryptS'
    4. Drag your translated pokemon B/W rom into that folder
    5. Run the program called 'eNDryptS Advanced.exe'
    6. Type in '1'. The program should automatically start to decrypt the rom
    7. Once the process has finished, close the program
    8. Your rom should now have been dycrypted
    9. Drag your rom into the root of your SD card
    10. Go into the folder you extracted earlier called 'Firmware Files'.
    11. Then go into the file called 'TTmenu Replacement'
    12. Drag the contents into the 'TTmenu' folder in the root of your SD (overwrite any files if needed)
    9. You can now play pokemon B/W on most carts with no errors!

    FIRMWARE SECTION
    This section fixes errors with your firmware

    ///How to play Pokemon B/W on R4 clones (R4 III, R4 Gold, R4 sdhc)///
    This uses the original YSmenu, a YSmenu DLDI patching program, DSTT firmware and some R4 dldi patches. It is about how to play B/W on R4 clone carts
    Please Note that I recommend you back up your SD card before doing this tutorial
    1. Download my pokemon B/W tools, my Pokemon B/W patches and my Pokemon B/W firmware files from the download links provided.
    2. On your desktop, create a folder called 'YSmenu' and a folder called 'DLDI Patcher' inside that
    3. Extract all the downloaded files to your desktop
    4. Go into the folder called 'Firmware files' and then into the folder 'YS MENU Japanese'.
    5. Drag all the files in that folder to the folder you created called 'YSmenu'
    5. Of those files you just dragged across, find the one called 'YSMenu.nds'
    6. Drag it into the folder you called 'DLDI Patcher'
    7. Go into the folder called 'Tools', then into the folder called 'YSmenu DLDI'
    8. Copy those files from that folder to the folder you created called 'DLDI Patcher' (where you copied the 'YSMenu.nds')
    9. Once the files have copied over, go to your desktop and go into the folder called 'Patches'
    10. Then find the file called 'r4tf.dldi'. Copy that over to the same folder as the patcher and the 'YSMenu.nds'
    8. Back in the 'DLDI Patcher' folder that you made, run the program called 'dlditool32.exe', then where it says 'DLDI File:' click the '...' button
    9. Locate the folder in which the .dldi file is located (in the 'DLDI Patcher' folder that you made)
    10. Where it says 'Binaries:' click the '...' button
    11. Locate the file called 'YSMenu.nds' (it should be in the 'DLDI Patcher' folder you made)
    12. Once that is done, click button that says 'Patch'
    13. In the 'Output:' section, it should says something like this:
    Code:
    Old driver:          R4(DS) - Revolution for DS
    New driver:          R4(DS) - Revolution for DS
    
    Position in file:    0x0002CEB0
    Position in memory:  0x0202D100
    Patch base address:  0xBF800000
    Relocation offset:   0x4282D100
    
    Patched successfully
    
    14. Then drag the 'YSMenu.nds' that you just patched out of the 'DLDI Patcher' folder and into the folder called 'YSmenu'
    15. Delete the file called 'akextract.exe', you do not need it
    16. Go into the folder called 'Firmware Files' and then into the folder called 'DSTT Firmware'. Copy all the files in there into the 'YSmenu' folder you made
    17. Once that has copied, run the program called 'ttextract.exe'
    18. Exit the program once it is done. There should be two new files there now. They are 'ttdldi.dat', 'ttpatch.dat'
    19. Delete 'ttextract.exe' now, it has done it's part
    20. Right click on the file called 'YSMenu.ini' and select 'open with'
    21. Then click 'Notepad' and tick the box saying 'always use the selected program to open this kind of file'
    22. Then in the notepad window, on the fourth line down, it sould say 'LITERALS=LITERALS_JPN'. Delete that line.
    23. Bring the fifth line up so it is directly below the third line, like this:
    Code:
    ; YSMENU Setting File
    [YSMENU]
    ; Section Name of Literals
    ;LITERALS=LITERALS_ENG
    ;LITERALS=LITERALS_FRA
    24. Delete the semi-colan in front of the line saying ';LITERALS=LITERALS_ENG', so it now says 'LITERALS=LITERALS_ENG'
    25. The first five lines should now look like this:
    Code:
    ; YSMENU Setting File
    [YSMENU]

    26. Save the file and exit it
    27. On your desktop, go into the folder called 'Tools'. Then go into the folder called 'R4 crypt'
    28. Open a new notepad and paste in the following:
    Code:
    @echo off
    cls
    :menu
    echo ---------------------
    echo Action Menu
    echo ---------------------
    echo [1] Decrypt Firmware

    :encryptc
    r4crypt.exe -e USRCHEAT.DAT CHEAT.DAT
    goto close
    
    :close
    cls
    29: Save the file in the 'R4 crypt' folder. In the drop down box under the name, select 'All Files'. Then name the file 'GUI.bat'
    30. In the 'R4 crypt' folder, there should now be a new batch file (MS-DOS file)
    31. Drag the 'YSMenu.nds' file from the 'YSmenu' folder you made into the 'R4 crypt' folder
    32. Run the file called 'GUI.bat'. Then type '2' and press enter (If the program crashes, then try again. If the crashes continue, the try typing in [2] and pressing enter)
    33. There will be a new file called '_DS_MENU.DAT'. Drag that file and 'YSMenu.nds' back to the 'YSmenu' folder
    34. Then go to your desktop and go into the folder called 'Patches'. There should be a file called '13249-r4patch.dat'. Rename it to 'r4patch.dat' then drag it to the 'YSmenu folder' with all the other stuff in it
    36. Delete the 'DLDI Patcher' folder (or move it to another place). Drag all the remaining files in the 'YSmenu' folder to the root of your clone cart (overwrite any files it asks files)
    37. Run it on your cart and try to run pokemon B/W. If it does not work, run 'YSMenu.nds' and then try to run the game. It should now work.
    38. You now have YSmenu on your clone cart and are able to play pokemon B/W!

    To soulsin and rockerzz182: This has been moved to the technical help section. the aim of this thread is to give an easy to understand tutorial on how to patch pokemon B/W. I update my posts with the latest stuff and every patch I find gets put up here.
    To darky000: The thing we are trying to patch is pokemon black and white. We are patching the .nds file so it will work on DS carts without freezing. If you followed the tutorial, the .nds file will be patched

    Re: Tutorial: How to Patch Pokemon Black and White

    Ok, I was worried about the TTDS tutorials for I do not have a TTDS. They were the only tourials a could not test, I was going off other sources. Try using the R4i/R4i sdhc tutorial and apply YS menu to your TTDS. That did work for my R4i and as I said in the tutorial, it may work for other carts also

    And try updating your normal firmware

    Reply if I helped

    Wait! Sorry, I know where I went wrong, I forgot to put in the end of the TTDS tutorial. You were meant to run TTmenu.nds and then play the game. That is my fault entirely for not proof-reading my post.

    I have updated it so it includes this step. Sorry to all those who got confused eg. B-rye and triemie

    Sorry again,

    Re: Tutorial: How to Patch Pokemon Black and White

    Hi, I'm a complete and utter newbie at ROMs, so I'm looking for a little help with this process.

    Okay, a lot of help. See, I'm trying to run DeSmuME on Mac OS X 10.5.8, and that works fine. But when I try to use the xDelta GUI.exe program you uploaded, I can't, due to the whole Mac thing. I've downloaded Wine, in the hopes that it would work in that. It didn't, instead giving me the error log "install the Windows version of Mono to run .NET executables". So, I downloaded a version of Mono, and can't figure out how to run that.

    What I would like to know is, is there a snowball's chance in a fight with Groudon that I can get this to work? (and how, how would be nice too.)

    Re: Tutorial: How to Patch Pokemon Black and White

    I will help if I can, but first, what computer are you using and what operating system is it running (Mac book pro and OS X snow leapard for example)

    .exe is a windows exutable file and cannot be run on mac. You were right trying to use wine, mabey find a different one or try to insall it again. You could try an emulator or try intall windows XP on a USB or on your hard drive. Do you have any mates who have windows? If so, use their computer to do it. As another posibility is you could try to find a mac program to run .patch files. As a final possibility you could go here:
    http://forum.deviantart.com/os/mac/543340/
    The first post tells of a way to convert .exe to .dmg, but not sure if it works though

    Hope I helped

    Actually, I think I might have it. Someone has made a patching tool for mac OS X here:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=180142
    There is a video there to explain it an instructions, here is the download link:
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PEN7XOAE

    I have updated my post with a new 'OS section' to include how to translate the game into english on Mac and Linux (I only have the mac tutorial up at the moment though)

    Hope I helped some people

    Re: Tutorial: How to Patch Pokemon Black and White

    Hmm... I'll have to try these tonight. my downloads have been going rather slowly, and I'd rather not leave my computer running while I"m out of the room.

    (I"m running Leopard, btw. Can't remember what TYPE of Mac it is, but I know it's not a Pro, or an Air. It's older than Snow Leopard, and I haven't updated yet.)

    EDIT: Well, I tried your Mac instructions, but when I ran rom_patcher, I got the following message (My name blanked out for security):
    Code:
    Last login: Sat Aug 28 18:32:16 on console

    logout
    
    [Process completed]
    
    
    There's no new rom in the rom folder, like I was told there should be, so did I do something wrong? I had renamed the Black rom that I got from your link to pokemonBlack.nds, and the patch to pokemonBlacktranslationpatch.nds.

    Hmm...

    Re: Tutorial: How to Patch Pokemon Black and White

    Hmm... I'm interested in his part:
    Is the xDelta file in a .rar, .zip or .7z file? (or any archive)
    If it is, put it directly on the desktop. If the file is in an archive it will not work. Make sure that both files (xdelta and rom) are on the desktop. Then try to run it.

    I am assuming this just because '5215 is the name of the file the rom comes in

    Hope I helped

    I got this when I was using xdelta on windows xp and fixed it by using a different version. I heard that someone else got this, but fixed it by just repedently applying it and it eventually worked

    It's not much to go off, i'll try it on my mates mac soon

    Re: Tutorial: How to Patch Pokemon Black and White

    Yeah that was it, it was inside another folder and not on desktop with the xDelta file. I noticed this too when I found another "easy patcher for Pokemon W/B" from Gbatemp guide, the instructions there said to move the rom to the patcher folder for it to work.

    Also if you want to include this in your guide (I found it rather simple to do, not sure how well translated this patch is)
    the link to the easy patcher:
    http://filetrip.net/file.php?id=22612

    EDIT* Delete the spoiler with the link if it's violation against the forum rules, can't remember them anymore :>

    EDIT2* I'm sorry for this nonsense, I missed the 2nd part on your instructions which clearly said to move it to the desktop, unless you added it after this :D Anyway, thanks for this guide mate!

    EDIT3* Yea that is true, but I should've double check the instructions before asking for help :p Anyway, heres the GBAtemp link for the guide I found the patcher in:

    P.S I have added some new tutorials and renamed the post to celebrate reaching the 7000 views mark. I hope that this does not disadvantage people in any way.
