    Is this an anti piracy measure but no matter where or when I save the game every time I load up my data its still right before the "lets catch the legendary pokemon of the lake"

    There have never been any anti-piracy measures in Pokemon Platinum.

    I'm pretty sure you need YS Menu to run Pokemon Platinum on the original R4. It needs a special 1MB save file which is not supported by 1.18.

    Actually it was working fine on my R4 1.8 - however I then decided to try YSMenu... White screen. Changed back to 1.18 - White screen! So, this is odd - have formatted, tried 1.8 AND YSmenu again and still PP will no longer load!

    Ideas?

    Well, I don't think there was any Kind of Anti Piracy on Pokemon Platinum. I even played the Game with Version 1.18 Firmware on my R4 and it was working fine, no freezes or save problems of any kind. Maybe there's something wrong with the Rom or the Firmware you're using.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    OK, very odd...

    Fixed it by downloading new Roms to replace mine... Thought I was going to have to resort to dragging my retail card around with me!

    Um guys, the save file is still a problem. You see, although it needs a 1MB save file, it will often work with a 512 KB one. Then it will continue to function happily... until that 512 KB runs out and there is no more space. Then you are screwed.

    Some people say that you can hex-edit the save file to 1 MB from 512 KB, but I've never done it.
