    is it possible to convert a pokemon black save into a pokemon white save?
    like change the Game ID or something.
    i need to do this for a friend...
    if it's not possible i guess i can transport all of the .pkm files

    I remember reading about attempts to do this, but some things were fucked up (like the version-specific areas).

    Why would it be trolling? It's a legit question. Many older flash carts used different save types that would need conversion and such to go between carts.

    The only attempt to convert a save to the opposite version was changing the filename to whatever you had the opposite version ROM's file name as. For some reason, the version-specific area is handled by the save, so doing just a basic filename change screwed up the game into showing the area for the opposite version (although, from what I understand, the games don't have all of the resources used by the opposite version's version-specific area, so the area was screwed up and didn't display or do something correctly).

    Without information on the save format that's pretty much the only attempts people can make. :P And yeah the size/look of the area and number of NPCs in it can vary, thus the save holding some of the info.

    i knew it! white forest exists in black's files! it must be from the entralink, i'll make an attempt at this for myself.
    i solved it for my friend by using pokesav to export the .pkm files of the boxes all at once then importing into pokegen.
