I tried to extract the RomFS.Bin using HackingToolkit3ds and while it seems to work I can't extract the config.ini (to change the width to 400x or whatever to fill the top screen/remove the black bars) from it when using RomFSExtractor. I get an error that says it is an invalid RomFS Binary.

I am stumped. It's 1:35am where I am and I can't go any further on my own. I remember being able to find the .CIA for Pokemon RBY all with the aspect ratios adjusted but I can't find one for Gold and Silver (leading me to try and adjust it myself to no avail).

Thanks to anyone in advance who can help me.

Depends on the version of the toolkit you're using... One of them is for decrypted files, another for encrypted ones. When you use the wrong version it won't extract your romfs because it can't..... Are you using HackingToolKit3DS or HackingToolKit9DS? The latter only works with encrypted files while the former only uses decrypted ones.

Hey sorry I am a few days late, I just wanted to let you know your advice worked perfectly. I used the 9DS version by accident.
Thank you so much for your help.

    Right now I'm re-calibrating the laser for my SCPH-1002
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    As many of the earlier models are prone to failure

    I'm so glad the boyfriend his laser still functions without any issue

    The eBay listing said that it won't read discs, but it actually does although FMV is laggy as well as CDDA. So it most definitely needs re-calibrating.

    Why it took so long is because I've been on Discord throughout my life, but have met a lot of toxic people on there and was always treated a lot like shit.

    @cearp,
    Thank you so much! :)

    @DinohScene,
    I know right. I did originally have an account here on GBATemp back in 2021, hardly ever used it so I ended up deleting it.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Reason was because of Discord, was so attached to it that it affected my mental health really bad.

    I'm much better and I am so happy to be with this community.
