    I made my own Boktai solar sensor patches from scratch with changed button activators and decreased sensitivity to make them easier to use/play with.

    - Button activators chosen to interfere with button combinations used by the game as little as possible.
    - Adjust sunlight by 1 bar per button press instead of a continuous increase/decrease as long as the button is held down.
    - Does not affect save format or Real Time Clock.
    - Boktai 1 patch does not have the sensor blocking bug.
    - Boktai 3 patch affects all game elements that require sunlight.

    More details in the readme. Patching tool and instructions included.

    Hi! Do you think is possible a patch to disable the rtc on the Boktai? Or some other way to play it on other emulators - I can't get this game to work on Dingoo or Vbag, and I've tried all 3 possible patches.
    Thanks

    Hi Thanks for the patches 2 and 3 work great however I think the first needs tweaking because the sun is always on.
    For example after defeating the boss in Sol City when you try to purify her coffin her health gets half way and then her coffin closes Otenko says to hide the sensor.
    However the sun seems to shine all the time even when there are no sun bars at the bottom so the coffin will remain closed.

    Its really strange when u get rid of the sun bars in areas with invisable ghosts you can see them so that trick works normally.
    Even the sun platforms work, But the skylights always appear even when theres no sunlight.

    As long as EZ-Flash IV doesn't screw anything up I don't see why not.

    Maybe a little late but thanks for these patches.
    The only problem is that the patch for the first game doesn't work too well.
    In some parts of the game, you have to block any sort of light to progress. But even if you put the solar bar to 0, there's still light coming in.
    Can you fix it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Finally found the motivation to go back and re-do all this. I've now written new patches from scratch for all the Boktai games, that should fix bugs like sunlight not being blocked completely in Boktai 1. These patches also don't affect the save file and Real Time Clock.

    thanks Prof.9 =)
    I actually just busted out my copy of Boktai yesterday.
    Moving w/the d-pad is awkward on DS and GBA, and i gotta say this game is way better via emulation on my psp and 3DS cuz of the analog sticks friendliness towards the diagonal orientation of the game.

    Finally I can play Boktay 1 with RTC enabled instead of setting the time with the old patch
    Thank you
    Prof.9 is possible to change the button combination in the three games to A+R+(left or right) ?

    Going to test this on my EZ Flash IV ASAP.

    I can remember Schlupi was after a Shinbok fix for EZ IV. Let's hope...

    The Boktai 1 USA patch alone makes this release awesome! Thanks for this Prof. 9!

    Ha ! eat that. The GBA is still alive and kicking :)

    I love that little device.

    Even got my brother to play some GBA games *proud*

    Neat patch.

    I love boktai, especially since it has various integrations in my beloved exe series.

    Excellent news!

    The Boktai 3 patch does not break when double patched with the translation on Ez Flash IV!

    EDIT: The game works fine, but saving isn't working for me...

    I think there's something up with my EZ.

    EDIT2: Yeah... For some reason it isn't saving at all. :/

    EDIT3: It IS saving, but it isn't loading. Which is incredibly odd.

    So i was checking the source and found out how to change the buttons on the boktai 1 but on boktai 2 and 3 works wrong, the sun changes when i press left or right and stops changing when i hold A+R, so is reversed
    this is what im using in boktai 2

    ldr r0,=30044E0h
    ldrh r2,[r0] // r2 = BUTTON_HELD
    ldrh r0,[r0,2h] // r0 = BUTTON_DOWN
    mov r3,080h
    lsl r3,r3,1h
    add r3,r3,1h
    and r2,r3
    cmp r2,r3 // if R+A held
    ldrh r2,[r1,2h]
    beq @@sunwrite

    what i wrote wrong?
    thanks
