    I have always wanted to randomize my Soulsilver cardtridge so I could play it anytime. Yesterday I stumbled across the TWL Save Tool which I could back up my Ds games Data with, so I found out a way in order to get a randomized Soulsilver Rom, Export the .sav file and put it onto my SD card and imported the save using TWL. Everytime I do this, the game Isnt randomized. The starters are normal, and the moves they have are normal as well. So I was wondering, Is there a way to do this and actually have the game be randomized?

    Why are you trying to run a romhack by using a save file?
    That's not even close to the same thing.

    On the Emulator Im using (Desmume) There is an option to Export the save data, and I thought that I would work kinda like the ORAS Randomizer

    The randomiser modifies the ROM not the save file.

    As said above, you need to patch the ROM, not the save so the answer is no.

    im not so sure thats what hes looking for. it certainly a potential workaround assuming the code works and he happens to have an action replay, but honestly. for what he had in mind, he would need to randomize a rom, and install it into a cartridge. in that case, maybe a flash cart would work closer to what he wanted?

    Yes indeed it would work closer. He would not need an action replay for this though (Nitrohax)

    When I read "randomize the cardtridge", I feel shocked.
