    Decryption will be in the next nds-bootstrap version, so those patches aren't needed now.

    Great news! So you managed to decrypt roms using Desmume method? What a relief it was open sourced.

    Same.

    I wonder what causes the lags.

    Pokemon Platinum doesn't have AP. I just bypassed 2 checks

    Incredibly smooth now, thanks for your work (:

    edit: It feels a bit jarring after the game has been so laggy for so long :s this is going to take some time to get used to :P

    Thanks to @retrogamefan concept and the attention he brought to the Pokemon Platinum games, I learned today by a bit of Google searching, that the NDS Pokemon games frame rate cap can be removed to run at 60fps, but the speed events duplicate as well, making the game to run unpractically faster. I will look if I can make a hackrom that reduces event speed by half then remove frame rate cap, so it will run at the same rate as the gba ones looked.

    I don't think such a thing exists. You could install HiyaCFW and use it to autoboot to TWLMenu++, as to my knowledge the only downside is the fact that it's a slightly longer load time.

    And, I believe there's an Unlaunch thread here? I'm really not sure, though.

    Edit: Whoops, I just now noticed your post in the other thread.

    Any reason why the mic doesn't work on some games? (Altair chronicles, lost in blue 3) also the last patches will be includes in an update? I haven't been keeping much attention

    You can already have them by downloading the latest Nightly for TM++.

    Also, I have made a patch specifically for "Nanashi No Geemu: Me" English translation - "The Nameless Game: Eye", since it refused to boot despite the existence of the original version patch (It changes the header CRC so...).

    I'm not at home until the next weekend, so I can't make a PR to add it @Robz8, so here it is, tested by me in New 3DS and DSi, no issues so far.

    I made corrections for B74J and other games here but they must not have been included in Twilight Menu/nds-bootstrap yet.

    Still I think that the translated version has another header CRC, so TM++ can't detect the patch for the original because of that, correct me if I'm wrong.

    You are correct :). I overlooked where you said english patched. My mistake :wacko:.
    You need to make a correction to your patch though. The 1st patched byte should be 37, not 36.
    I really need to update the rom tool on GBATemp with all the new corrections I've made.

    EDIT : @Robz8
    I've been testing alot of games in between making patches.
    The following games need the AP message to appear in Twilight Menu/nds-bootstrap :
    Maeilmaeil Deoukdeo! - DS Dunoe Training (Korea) (ANMK)
    DS Vitamin - Widaehan Bapsang - Malhaneun! Geongangyori Giljabi (Korea) (YVKK)
    Chrono Trigger (Japan) (YQUJ)
    Chrono Trigger (USA) (YQUE)
    Chrono Trigger (Europe) (YQUP)
    TOEIC DS - Haru 10-bun Yakjeomgeukbok +200 (Korea) (CT5K)
    Hotel Duskui Bimil (Korea) (CWIK)
    Princess Maker 4 - Special Edition (Korea) (CP4K)
    TOEIC Test DS Training (Korea) (AEYK)
    Spectral Force - Genesis (Korea) (YW4K)
    Hwansangsuhojeon - Tierkreis (Korea) (YG4K)
    Jeoldaepiryo - Yeongsugeo 1000 DS (Korea) (YEOK)
    Jeoldaeuwi - Yeongdaneo 1900 DS (Korea) (YE9K)

    These 2 games currently show An error has occured in the nds-bootstrap loading screen :
    Pokemon Bulgasaui Dungeon - Siganui Tamheomdae (Korea) (YFTK)
    Pokemon Bulgasaui Dungeon - Eodumui Tamheomdae (Korea) (YFYK)

    Yeah. When I run any DS game with the widescreen option from the TWL menu activated it just show the game with an Orange color temperature.

    That's actually called a redshift/blue light filter.
    Try redoing all of the steps.

    As Robz8 said, you're somehow enabling the Redshift filter.

    In your .bat file you should have, like in the OP, the following text:
    Code:
    mkpatch_b asd 1010
    That means the last four characters on the line are a one (1), a zero (0), another one (1), and another zero (0).

    You don't really need to understand exactly what the ones and zeroes mean, but basically each "1" is a feature you want on and each "0" is a feature you want off. It works like this:
    Code:
    1010
    ||||_Redshift
    |||_Debug text
    ||_Trainer
    |_Widescreen
    Or if this helps you visualize it better:
    Code:
    Widescreen v v Debug text
               1010
        Trainer ^ ^ Redshift
    As long as the last digit is a zero, Redshift shouldn't be getting enabled. Is it possible your .bat file has something like "101" instead of "1010", meaning the Trainer and Redshift are enabled but widescreen is not?

    A long time ago, I read about the method to uncap the frame rate in Gen 4 Pokémon games and just recently tried Soul Silver. It ran pretty good at first, even better than on emulator, since you can use TWL CPU speed, but even that didn't help in some cities. Does Platinum run at a more stable 60 fps than Soul Silver? The game's speed gets tied to the fps, so, you can really notice lags, because the game slows down. So, if you halve the speed, laggy areas will run really, really slow. I can't test how well Platinum runs atm, since my PC broke yesterday ^^'

    Also, I'm impressed, that Robz got Infrared stuff working. And fun fact: Uncapping the frame rate does not break Pokewalker functionality.
