    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. :)

    TWiLight Menu++ contains AP-patches for every game with AP measures, in the form of .ips files, and are applied on-the-fly by nds-bootstrap.
    Alternatively, you can use DS-Scene ROM Tool to AP-patch your game.

    Not recommended, but you can also check out this link.
    https://www.odrive.com/s/8443cc3a-862e-41d7-b064-09378f79f6b3-5965a89a
    OneDrive link, if there's issues: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AqGeeLfCS_WfxxDNO3jz2tL9_Kl6

    The link above contains any AP-patch me and some others have found, including @retrogamefan's OpenPatch app, (howto included, written by me).

    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)

    is someone else having trouble patching Chrono Trigger?, I used the patcher in the first link but I'm still getting the 1st portal loop, I'm using the xenophobia release and twloader 6.6.2.

    yes, it can save but you still need mario kart as a donor rom.

    Basically, for roms that don't work, it injects parts of the rom into another that is known to work.

    all pokemon games up to black are working, you need a donor rom for pokemon D/P/P and HG/SS and a donor cart with the same chip type for pokemon B/W.
