Thread: Pokemon Soul Silver (U) rom problems!

  1. #1

    Exclamation Pokemon Soul Silver (U) rom problems!

    Okay, so I'm using an R4, and I downloaded the US rom of Pokemon Soul Silver. The problem is that the game freezes every once in a while. Usually in transitions to and from battles and stuff like that. But sometimes, it just seems like it does it randomly.

    I heard the Japanese rom had the same problem, but that someone made a fix for it. Cuz I know that the japanese rom works great.

    Anyway, I was wondering if there is a way to fix this problem on the US rom as well. If someone knows or have heard anything, please tell me! Thank you so much.
    Oh, and I'm not really experienced when it comes to stuff like this, so if the answer's really obvious, don't make me feel bad about it, okay? =P

    Thanks and bye. =)

    ^ No, that would solve nothing, Alexander. If you read Yoshi's post better, you'd clearly see he isn't having the black screen problem.

    Sadly Yoshi, this IS a problem that is still unsolved. There is no fix available yet that stops the random crashes for Soul Silver OR Heart Gold, and as far as I know, it doesn't matter which language/region your game is; they're all broken if you're playing on emulator. Either there needs to be a patch made for the game, or the emulators themselves to solve the problem.

    I have the exact same problem, as does anyone else trying to play this on emulator (I mostly get completely random crashes like you, but trying to save the game causes me problems too). Many out there are working on fixing this, and some talented folk have it partially solved resulting in much fewer crashes... but they're far from perfect at the moment. Stay tuned.

    Wrong again. That code ONLY fixes the black screen freeze at the very start of the game. Any crashes that occur after that are still going to happen just the same; completely unrelated to the black screen fix/code. And again, if you're playing SS or HG on any emulator (and you play long enough), you're going to get random crashes until a true fix is released.

    A number of people on youtube are claiming they have a 100% crash-free fix for the American version roms up for download, but they're all hoaxes and viruses. Be sure to keep away from these files.

    And no offense Alexander, but giving advice on a topic you aren't familiar with and spreading misinformation doesn't help anybody.

    I sure hope they get a fix on this quite soon, So far I can't even MAKE saves, Much more have problems with the crashing upon save.
    The ".sav" file just doesn't even show up when I make saves, Spent like 5 hours getting the first 8 badges or so, And when I loaded the game back up .. It was on a new game, Pissed me off pretty bad. lol.. And does anybody know of a legit US rom in all english?

    Hey there.... It seems that I have the problem too.. But I not sure it is freezing or what.. Is a micro wave failure.
    But after I download no$zoomer on my no$gba.. No problem at all.. BUT after for sometime a rom crash problem came out, so I am not sure is this the problem all people facing or wat??

    Uber1 I don't have any crashes with no$zoomer and that blackfix code probably the copy of your rom is corrupted or something. although try this code it might work.

    It's easy. ID is listed on page 84 now. And the cheat too. And this is how it looks in my cheat.db

    Alexander, Could you provide me with Links for the exact emulator you use, And the same rom? I'd like to give your exact copy a shot, Obviously multiple ones I've tried won't save .. And that's like, The ONLY problem .. Except when I got .sav files from others, And tried loading them, And when I clicked on the continue game option the "rom-image has crashed" error came up.
