Re: Help--- ROm not copying

I moved your thread from the Documents/Tutorials forum to the Help/Question forum and I deleted your duplicate thread.

It sounds like your misunderstanding is with how to use the CLI (command line interface).

The command you tried executing is actually supposed to be two separate commands.

Using the pokecrystal repository as an example, if you wanted to "clone" the repository then you would execute this command:

git clone https://github.com/pret/pokecrystal

"Clone" means to download all of the source code from the code repository (as well as all of the git history of the repository). For more familiarity with git, I recommend you look for a "intro to git" tutorial.
When you clone the repository it creates a folder on your computer with the same name ("pokecrystal" in this case).

So the next command is:

cd pokecrystal

This means "change directory" to the pokecrystal directory (folder).

When you're using Cygwin (the CLI), there is always a "current working directory". This is the folder from where commands are executed.
It is similar to how a Windows File Explorer window has a "current working directory".

In order to execute commands in the pokecrystal project, you first need to go "inside" the pokecrystal folder with the "cd" command.
