    Hello!

    Since AP-patches may be disappearing due to built-in patching by flashcard firmwares, and/or dead links, I've decided to create this thread for AP-patches. :)

    Please check out this link.

    It includes any AP-patch I've found, including RetroGameFan's OpenPatch app, (howto included, written by me).
    This also will be useful for nds-bootstrap users, since it does not include built-in AP-patching.

    Posting so I try to remember to look at my old HDD later to see if I have some of those hanging around.

    Just as a heads-up, it seems not all of these patches are made to work on clean dumps. I dumped my Black 2 cartridge for personal use and tried to apply these patches since my flashcart's AP handling isn't the best, but neither of the XDelta patches worked.

    Every time I try to patch pokemon heartgold, I keep getting an "XD3_INVALID_INPUT" error. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, or if the ROM is no good, and OpenPatch gives some weird Japanese text i can't read XD

    EDIT: I had a bad file, I grabbed a different one and then it worked.

    Is it possible to make an AP patch by analysing game arm9 /7 code? (Is it worth it, cause pretty sure it's possible)

    Well of course, that's the only way.
