    Alright, so I think I have a handle of most of this, as I can extract/unpack the cias just fine, but how do I get to (edit) the code.bin in the DecryptedexeFS.bin? I tried the "FS2" option to "extract contents of DecryptedexeFS.bin", but no new files show up when I do so. It says extraction is done, but nothing happens other than a new (empty) folder appearing. Thanks for the help.

    Not sure to understand what you want to do with the code.bin file?
    Just got the file itself?

    The program won't extract my cxi file, it doesn't have any 'special characters', it's clean, it's in the same folder, etc. Am I supposed to name it something other than the numbers that braindump assigns it, and then use that? If so, that would have been helpful to know, but I don't want to rename it until I get a confirmation that that's what I'm supposed to do. If not, what am I doing wrong?

    I don't quite understand... What exactly is a "clean" CIA? If i can't use GodMode9 or Decrypt9 to get my files how am I supposed to get them?

    "Clean" mean it's downloaded straight from nintendo's servers (using FunkeyCIA and an EncryptedTitleKey), or got using a conversion from a clean .3DS (encrypted too, so not decrypted using GodMode9 or Decrypt9).
    GodMode9 dump a CIA already decrypted.

    Or after dumping it with Godmode9 encrypt it again before putting it on your PC.

    So... I have this weird issue where I download the newest version of the tool and when I go to install it, everything just... disappears. I have no idea what the hell is happening and it is really pissing me off because this thing does a lot of stuff by itself as it is. Thanks Windows 10.

    To explain the issue a little better, I download the stuff from the website, and unzip it. Then I open the folder for Packhack, everything is there for about a second, and then everything just disappears off the screen and the folder reads as empty. All I want to do is randomize Sun and Moon. T_T

    Whatever antivirus you're using is probably detecting HackingToolkit and its associated programs as a virus and that's why it's deleting it. Turn it off an add them to the list of things allowed to go through it.

    Lol, you're welcome. I had the same exact problem with Norton and HackingToolkit.

    So is there no way to randomize field items in Pokemon Sun and Moon? That is like 40% of the fun. XD

    pk3DS might be able to do it though I haven't tried it myself.

    The version I have apparently doesn't have the ability. I feel like this is the most recent version.

    Then I guess it's not possible. I can look into it later if you want and see what items can be randomized.

    Yes, please! I miss this feature so much. I don't recall if it was even in Gen 6 either. I know Gen 5 had it. It was always nice to find that random Master Ball just sitting out in the open, or get a Lucky Egg early.

    I think that is for the ability Pickup. It is a list of items Pokemon with Pickup, like Lillipup, can find after battle if it isn't holding anything. Still a nice little chart to have fun with, though. What I want is to randomize items that are just sitting out in the open. Like... Say in Pokemon Red and Blue, I think normally there is an item ball sitting south of where you get Flash. If I randomized it, it could be a Master Ball or a Fossil or something cool like that. But as far as I can tell, Gen 6 and 7 don't have a randomization option for that.
