    THIS THREAD IS NO LONGER ACTIVE ON GBATEMP.NET, I HAVE A STILL CONTINUED THREAD ON ANOTHER SITE. IT HOSTS ROM'S THOUGH SO I CANNOT LINK TO IT. GO THERE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. IT HAS OVER 18 FIXES FOR POKEMON BLACK AND WHITE, AND I HELP EVERYONE WHO ASKS. IF YOU WANT INFO OR WANT TO VIEW THIS TOPIC IN MORE DETAIL, FIND IT ON THE INTERNET. SEARCH AROUND, IT WILL BE THERE.

    This is a tutorial on how to patch pokemon black and white into English. It also includes the AP fix patch and exp fix patch, along with some firmware patches (if you call them that), the No$Gba fix and now, how to play Pokemon B/W on a TTDS plus how to patch the game if it freezes during evolution. I will update this post with the latest patches if I can, and all the patches here are confirmed (by me) to be working.

    Please leave comments and feedback after reading this post, every comment counts, even if it is to criticize me, I still want to hear it. If you need help of any sort, ask me in a reply or via PM

    The Wood R4 you linked to is out of date, try this: Wood R4 1.15

    EDIT: There is also no need to include a tutorial on patching with the English Translation patch since that is already taken care of in my thread. For one thing, you only included two of the eight English patches, and I couldn't tell if they were the New Logo/Old Logo/Kata Names/English Names/etc. It will also save you the trouble of having to update your patch folder every time a new one comes out.

    But you can keep the other tutorials because those will help a lot of people experiencing those types of situations. [​IMG]

    Also, if you put each section in spoilers, it will make your post easier to navigate through.

    Yeh, I know this post could be better, but it is my first so I am doing a trial and error process
    Thanks for the help spenstar, you are obviously have a lot of experience in this type of thing
    I only posted the two translation patches because they are the most recent V5 official ones, and I do not see why to use an older version unless there are problems, and your post on this probably explained this better than mine

    This tutorial is not useless it has some properties of help, like to fix freezing and such, the translation is just a part of the post

    The original translation topic has links for the freezes. And in an easier format too. You ever heard of Rudolph's Child's Play patches?

    @SDamonCronous

    Actually there are eight current versions of v5:
    V5Black-NewLogo
    V5Black-NewLogo-Kata
    V5Black-OldLogo
    V5Black-OldLogo-Kata
    V5White-NewLogo
    V5White-NewLogo-Kata
    V5White-OldLogo
    V5White-OldLogo-Kata

    That is what I was referring to. [​IMG]

    And yeah, you can keep the other tutorials for the other issues, I just think there really ins't a point on posting instructions for patching the English Translation since it is already taken care of. [​IMG]

    That, and it's in a more convenient manner. I mean, he has the hex fix for the EXP, you have the patch fix.

    True, it is easier to just drag-n-drop your game on the patch.exe to fix the AP.

    Sorry, I misunderstood you spenstar. The patches in the tutorial are 'V5Black-NewLogo' and 'V5White-NewLogo'
    I know it would be easier to drag'n'drop and I have included that in the tutorial. But I also have the hex patch and the xdelta version of the hex patch. I do this so if one method does not work, there is an alternative to try.

    Thanks for all the help spenstar, I have updated the post with all the new info and a new layout and look

    This thread is not my main thread though, my thread on romulation is the same, but update that more often. I only update this one occasionally

    here is the link:http://forum.romulation.net/index.php?topic=49399.msg1133671#msg1133671

    Sorry, but you can't give links to ROM sites :/

    I would edit your post.
    And no problem about giving help on the new layout

    1. Make sure you have my pokemon B/W tools and patches
    2. Go into the folder called 'Pokesav'
    3. Run the pokesav black and white exe file
    4. Click open in the main window
    5. Load your pokemon B/W save file
    6. Edit away as you wish!


    -I followed these steps, but unfortunately when i load my save file it says "error wrong file type". anything i'm doing wrong? or missing?

    The save file needs to be in '.sav' format, the file that most DS carts use, what format is your save file in?

    This thread is old. I have a constantly updated version of this same tutorial on another site, so go there if you want to read it. I cannot link to it because it hosts roms, but I am sure you can find it yourself

    Until next time
