I'm not sure if this is the right board to post this. If not please feel free to move it.
Herds my problem: while experimenting a bit with various glitches I stupidly managed to corrupt the save files on both my Gold and Crystal carts. Its not a huge deal, because no have backup saves on my Mega Memory Cards.
But I'd like to explore the corrupted saves a bit. If I remember correctly there's a problem with a chat cksum causing the "save file is corrupted" message, and most of the data is still intact.
I was hoping someone could share gameshark codes to bypass the error message, and force the games to load the corrupted saves anyway.
I've had interesting results with corrupt data before. When I did a similar thing on my red years ago my name was the default 'NINTEN' and lots of my pokemonhad the species of the Pokemon next to it, but the name and moves of what it originally was.
In a slightly related case, I once played a Gold cart with a dead batters, saving using my Game shark's be nap shot feature. This doesn't save PC Pokemon correctly and iendednup with a bunch of level 100 random Pokemon with garbage names, weird moves location caught data, even though it was gold, and Pokerus.I still have many of those to this day and spread the pokerus around as much as possible.
When I loaded that game into stadium 2, I had a mystery gift waiting for me of a gs ball
Well, enough reminiscence.
TLDR: I have corrupt saves on Gold and Crystal, not the batteries fault. Does anyone know and can share gameshark codes to bypass the error traps?
