    If someone could suppy me with a save with and without the additional missions I may be able to write an injector myself.

    It's emulator independant, meaning you have to copy your .sav file, inject the missions and then copy back.

    Any of you know an updated mission injector for guardian signs, including the giratina/arceus missions? I can't inject those and I wish I could.

    I have the same problem, except I already downloaded them before. But now they're gone. I tested this in DeSmuME, and apparently the injector actually ERASES the extra missions.

    There are save files on GameFAQs that have all the DLC content. No story progression what so ever, so you can still set up your own file for the story but you'll have access to all the DLC missions

    Would I be able to restore the game I already beat, and keep the DLC missions?

    Well you could try to mess around with a HEX editor. Meaning that you'll just copy the DLC content from the downloaded save file into your file with your completed story. You'd "just" have to find the correct offsets. IIRC I actually did that once but that was a couple of years ago.

    Nice idea, but I don't know jack about hex editing. The most I did in hex editing was character cloning in Fire Emblem Awakening.

    I found a guy who made a fresh save file with all missions. If you DM me I can give you a file to download or the link to find the save file.

    Can we get a mod to delete this? Internet pooped out and sent it many times.

    Little bit late, but do you still happen to have the link to that save file?

    This program's pretty old, but it almost works perfectly.

    I've used it now with both Shadows of Almia and Guardian Signs (physical carts), and there's an issue when dealing with real copies of the game. The save file for each game is 256KB, but when you put it through the injector it comes out as a 512KB file. Opening it up in a hex editor reveals that there's 256KB of nothing at the end of the file, and because the file size is wrong it won't load onto a real cartridge properly. Deleting the last 256KB of the file makes it work perfectly fine and emulators don't care so they'll load the larger file, it's just a bit of a stupid thing that the program does that only a very small number of people would ever encounter.
