How far into the game does this go?
I would like to thoroughly play an actual DECENT Crystal Remake.
The current Beta 2 covers all the events of Johto and the Kanto Elite Four battles. I am sure he will add Kanto session in new beta 3

Argh, not again. This time I found out that I screwed up the gym leader battle palette. Today's patch fixes that as well as adds new Jasmine overworld sprites by Retribution.

Really appreciate the fast updates. Unfortunately, I've noticed a few other problems. The pokedex doesn't register the pokemon I catch, so my starter is the only pokemon that my pokedex says I own. Also, the pokegear doesn't register any trainers, except for Youngster Joey, even though the dialogue it triggered, so the only people whose phone numbers I have are Mom, Professor Elm, and Joey. Hoping you can find a fix for these, thanks.

Actually it does.
You have to leave the route, then go talk to the . One example is Fisherman Ralph (He is south from Violet City)
I talked to him after the battle. Nothing. I went to heal up, talked to him again, he asked to register me. I said yes and now he tells me when rare Pokemon are available to encounter in the water. :)

This is true, Beta 2 finishes right after the first credits (after the Champion).

My tiles? Haha, most of them are FireRed tiles. The custom ones, however, you can thank Pokémon Palladium Project for.

The first one, I'm not having. Pokémon register fine for me. The Pokégear not registering any trainers is because I haven't programmed them in yet due to a lack of knowledge about how they work.

...No, this doesn't work. Like I said, I haven't programmed the trainers in. So he can't call you for any rare Pokémon in the water...

Let me just make it clear that any and all trainers you can register the phone number of have not been programmed into the game by me and thus will not work properly. None of them will call to rematch (I think) and none of them will do their special event.

By the way, if this isn't too much of a bother, can you please, for fun, add in a Battle Frontier-ish place with the original Emerald Frontier Brains and Frontier Brains Theme (It's my 2nd favourite theme in all of Emerald)? And maybe get a passport or something from the old man on the SS Aqua (I think it was) after finding his granddaughter?

Hound of Justice

Yeah none of them ever call for a rematch or event some times the rematch icon my appear near a trainers name but nothing happens if you try to battle them again.
The only calls you get so far are the 4 from elm (stolen pokemon,egg,team rocket and master ball) and 1 from mom if you dont take the running shoes.

Anyway i tried one of your latest patches and liked the bug fixes and the changes like the new music and the ability to use the bike in gatehouses thank you for that.

In my playthrough however i found 2 new bugs:

1. Weird letter in the Dialogue with 1 of the WISE TRIO Members who dont let you to go to the Tin Tower after you get the Badge from the Ecruteaks Gym
Sorry i dont have a pic because theres no option to take a screenshot with My Boy! Emu
2. This is a weird one, something is wrong with the Pokedex my starter wasnt registered and some pokemon that i saw wasnt either, when my cyndaquil evolved the quilava was registered and the pokemon from the odd egg was registeted too.
I was near in the end of the game and my pokedex only had like 10 pokemon registered as seen and 2 as catched...
And the pokemon data always changes after a while other pokemon get registeted as seen and other just dissapear idk what could be wrong all my emu settings are fine so i think something is wrong with the hack i never had this kind of bug with the older versions

And the Sunday bug is back again even on My Boy! emu, Its again Wednesday instead of Sunday and some of the npcs who give you items on different days of the week dont appear idk whats wrong with the Android Emus :(

Edit: Heres the dialogue with the weird letter:
We, the WISE TRIO, are the protectors of the legendery POKeMON.

Btw @mikethepokemaster i didnt got the bug you was talking about it must have been caused by cheats like Diego said n you could try VBA-M its better

Edit 2: The Pokedex bug appears on Gameboid aswell can anyone check if this happens with VBA-M

That's the plan, once the rest of the game is done. Although since the Battle Tower is right off of Olivine, I don't think a passport would be needed.

Wow, my bad. The patch from a short time ago that enabled sprites to be seen from other maps screwed up the Pokédex... That has now been fixed and uploaded, as well as the small text bug with the Sages.

Also new in this update: inescapable Pokémon, new music (and Silver sprite) from tonti, and new Falkner overworld sprite from Retribution!
And now more in-depth:
Pokémon that were inescapable in Crystal (such as Suicune or the Pokémon in the Rocket Hideout) are now inescapable in CrystalDust!
New music from tonti includes the two Bug-Catching Contest themes and a new Goldenrod City theme! The Silver battle sprite has also been updated by him.
A new and not-crap Falkner overworld sprite, made by Retribution, makes its debut!

Please share your opinions on all the new things in the thread!
(Don't worry, Android testing coming soon)

I wonder how could the sprites cause the dex glitch 0.o
Can you give an example of a use of the sprites that can be seen from other maps?
Thanks again for fixing the Dex for a moment i thot that its another Android exclusive bug :(

ElitePokes, you forgot to mention Baboa in the Safari Zone. His calls are scripted after you meet him and he registers you. ;)

But that was an addition to HG/SS and wasn't in the original Crystal. The question becomes whether diego is including the Safari Zone, in which case we have to account for this.

It was because the address that the mod was using accidentally overwrote the Pokédex caught/seen locations.
And an example of that would be the border between Routes 38 and 39; you can see a Beauty from Route 39 and a Cooltrainer from Route 38. That, or Azalea and Route 33; you can see the Hiker from Azalea.
ElitePokes, you forgot to mention Baboa in the Safari Zone. His calls are scripted after you meet him and he registers you. ;)

I will not be having Baboa in the game, nor the Cianwood Safari Zone; you'll just have to wait and see for the Safari Zone.

That Shiny Magikarp is legit, nice job! Also, I'm not quite sure what you mean by that first sentence.

I have some questions regarding Kanto:

1) Are you going to keep the maps the same size as they were in FR/LG, or are you going to shrink them like G/S/C did? (hint: please don't shrink them)
2) Will Cerulean/Fuschia & Cinnabar actually have their correct music like in HG/SS, or are you going to just make them use the Viridian City music like G/S/C did? (hint: please let them have their correct music)
3) Will Cerulean Cave be included?
3a) If Cerulean Cave is included, will it use the Rocket Hideout music from FR/LG, or will it have generic Kanto cave music like in HG/SS?
4) Will Seafoam Islands be fully included (and by fully included, I don't mean just Blaine's Gym like in G/S/C, I mean Blaine's Gym AND the actual cave like in HG/SS)
4a) If Seafoam Islands is fully included, will it use Viridian Forest music like in R/B/Y & FR/LG, or will it use Ice Path music like in HG/SS?
5) Are you considering restoring Route 23, or at least adding an explanation as to why it magically disappeared?
6) Will the Kanto Safari Zone be included?
7) Will Viridian Forest be included?

It's not possible to do since nobody's figured out how to make a sprite follow you. Besides that, I would have to have every single sprite of every single Pokémon in the game, and I can't do that.
I have some questions regarding Kanto: (Please be aware that my answers only represent the planned Kanto, as I haven't gotten there yet)

1) Are you going to keep the maps the same size as they were in FR/LG, or are you going to shrink them like G/S/C did? (hint: please don't shrink them) Sorry, they're being shrunk.
2) Will Cerulean/Fuschia & Cinnabar actually have their correct music like in HG/SS, or are you going to just make them use the Viridian City music like G/S/C did? (hint: please let them have their correct music) Sorry, they're having the same music as in GSC.
3) Will Cerulean Cave be included? Possibly.
3a) If Cerulean Cave is included, will it use the Rocket Hideout music from FR/LG, or will it have generic Kanto cave music like in HG/SS? I haven't even thought that far yet.
4) Will Seafoam Islands be fully included (and by fully included, I don't mean just Blaine's Gym like in G/S/C, I mean Blaine's Gym AND the actual cave like in HG/SS) Possibly.
4a) If Seafoam Islands is fully included, will it use Viridian Forest music like in R/B/Y & FR/LG, or will it use Ice Path music like in HG/SS? Again, still haven't gotten there.
5) Are you considering restoring Route 23, or at least adding an explanation as to why it magically disappeared? Not really, sorry.
6) Will the Kanto Safari Zone be included? No, the Safari Zone has been moved to the Sevii Islands.
7) Will Viridian Forest be included? If you mean as its own map, then no.
Responses in bold. I'm sorry that most of them aren't what you wanted to hear, but that's just the style of this remake.

I was thinking if it would be possible to resize the gold, silver and crystal trainer sprites in order for them be with the same height with the fr/lg red, green and blue trainer sprites. If this seems confusing, i can post a picture for it. Since i think they look tall for their age. :D

Hopefully not shrunk, but if my idea holds, they might all be connected by Surfing Routes (and thus the actual minimap, if you were to envision it, would shrink). That was my proposal to this. There would have to be dark water that is not surfable as rocks all over the place would make no logical sense (though a middle between the two for Dive spots is logical and could connect all islands).

Magnemites do, in fact, hold Metal Coatd; I'm not sure of the chances though.

So yeah, here are the sprites in the game if i'm not mistaken. I put the number of pixels on top of the sprite to indicate how many pixels off or under the actual ones are. I tested the protagonists of fr/lg, and they have the same height. Although this doesn't simply imply that reducing the pixels vertically anywhere on the sprite in order to lower their height, we still need to make their height proportionate to the official ones.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/blue_orangepatrick2006/size_comparison_protagonist.png

For the rival, i believe the frlg rival is a pixel or something taller than the protagonists, so i had it separated from the rest.

I think what helped me was having a Lv.70ish Scrafty knowing Thief against Lv.48 Solrocks on Route 13 (again, in Unova). Thief at times knocks them out in one blow. When I finally got my Sun Stone (which got cloned immediately, and my original post about that adventure is in the Unova Journal thread at the top), the Solrock fainted on that first attack despite it being only 40 base power.

And yes, that Sun Stone was a 5% chance. And yes, I saw a couple dozen Solrocks in the session where I got it - plus enemies that keep you from running away and force you to waste time (yes, they stopped Lv.70 Pokés from running away).

Alright, thank you for your consideration. I just played through the latest patch, i haven't found any bugs, but i haven't visited much homes in the towns though, I only just collected badges quick and i've made it to ecruteak city.

Here are my thoughts, only minor suggestions though:

1. The pokegear background picture features a pokenav, not a pokegear.
http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/blue_orangepatrick2006/change_pokenav_bg_image.png

Yes, i know the pokegear is still a work in progress, but may i suggest that the background picture on the pokegear's menu be changed to the pokegear instead of the pokenav?

2. The mystery egg sprite, well i was wondering if you could replace it with the hg/ss one, since you used the squirtbottle..
This:

Omg i started a new game and did set the day to Sunday and everything was ok but now that its Monday ingame its Friday and if i change my Androids day to Tuesday its Saturday ingame :(
Anyway the new Silvers sprite and Falkners OW sprite look better and i like how Goldenrod looks now and the new theme is just epic
And i forgot to mention about the new colours in Pokemon Stats they are great!

Edit 2:
If i set Monday as the current day ingame everything is normal and all days of the week work
Why on earth is this bug so hard to kill? I don't have the Android device with me right now but please let me know if this new version works.

Also new in this version: a new Pokégear background! And some big news: I've finally figured out generic trainers in the Pokégear! However, please note that this does not mean that all the trainers will be able to call and give you items and all just yet; this is still in the preliminary stages. Also, I'll need someone to come up with what they say when you call and what is said when you choose to "check" them. I may just take their "what they say" straight from Crystal, but I'll still need someone to do the rest.

I have my spriter making the Pokégear sprite now, and I may swap out the egg sprites in the future.
In today's update: Goldenrod City Revamped!
Thanks to a new palette and a few new tiles, Goldenrod City feels completely different!
Personally, I think it's much improved over the last version. Tell me what you guys think!

Awesome work, thanks a lot diego. i want to replay the game again with the new patch, thanks for the updates. :)

edit: just noticed elitepokes' post, i agree the falkner overworld looks perfect! the frlg feel is really there. :)
I'm thinking that there maybe a possibility that the falkner trainer sprite would be changed to accomodate the overworld's colors?

I'd just like to ask a few questions.
When was Beta 1 and Beta 2 released?

In a few page back you said you have a schedule between Shining Opal and Crystal Dust, on what "stage" are you in now?

and lastly, after completing the pokemon league I went to Olivine Port and tried to get into the SS Aqua (or whatever the name is) but instead there was a TM 02 (Headbut), why was there a TM 02 there? (the boat I can understand)

Thanks for your time, keep up the awesome work.

Thanks guys for the comments about the Falkner OW. :D I should hopefully be able to update a lot more of them soon. :D You'll also want to check out Jasmine too. She's decided to get a makeover too. ^^ Also, just thought I'd let you guys know I'm nearly done with Bugsy's new sprite. ;D

I'm replaying through the game at the moment. :) I think it's been mentioned before, but I think the Mart's early items (pre-first badge) is different to that of Crystals- notably, you coulnd't buy Escape Rope's at Violet City's Pokemon Mart in the original Crystal iirc (I have been playing Gold a bit recently so I might be getting my facts mixed up) but you can in CD. A bit minimal, but eh. Every little bit counts. ^^

Hey Diego ill try the new version later when i get home to check the new Pokegear Background and the RTC bug also thats greats news for the Pokegear if you take the Trainers dialogues from Crystal it will be great.

Retribution i checked Jasmines OW aswell its great but my favorite is Falkners you did a really awesome job there i cant wait to see Bugsys OW :D
As for the market items i played Crystal not a long time ago when i was testing this hack and i think this hack got the same items for sale

At this stage this hacks Johto is the best Johto i ever saw its better than other hacks and even the original GSC (the only thing i miss is Pokegear and the other Legendaries but those will probably be available in future betas if everything goes well) keep up the awesome work guys ;)

Please don't post direct links to the download, I'd rather people go through the download page for multiple reasons. If you could please edit the link out or change it to the download page, I would be happy.

Also, just letting you know that when I posted that I fixed it last night, I mean that it should work on Gameboid as well. And yes, it will flash correctly.

I also found a Hoothoot in a tree near the Sudowoodo event and the Pokedex shows that Hoothoots can be encountered in many places which is strange since night pokemon are not supposed to be in the hack for now
And something is wrong with those 3 apricorn trees there is nothing on them as if i already picked the apricorns

I can explain that. You are seeing what happens at the map border. If diego keeps the maps EXACTLY identical, there's nothing he can do about this. Otherwise, he'd have to change a border tile, thus screwing up something below.

There IS one possible fix; he can add a small map covering the height of the area between Route 45 and Route 29 (to the east, and this can just be a continued downward extension of Route 45 to where it will meet Route 29) and fill in an appropriate border there. This might be the best option so that everything ties in the way it should. He'll need to cover the entire area or it will look wrong anywhere on the right of the map. (diego, if you're confused by this, send me the working copy on MSN and I'll do it.)

In some cases, no you shouldn't. However, in other cases, there isn't any problem whatsoever. It depends on the updates.

At this point, I'd back up that save so you can keep the Shiny Slowpoke. However, since you should not be able to trade it off (unless you work out a connection between your computer and DS, in which case I would love one :P ), it's pointless to bother keeping.

Quick questions.
Is this game going to implement the Phisical/Special move categories introduced in gen IV, or is it going to be like in gen III and bellow?

Next Question.
Do the Pokemon in CrystalDust have GenII learnsets?
(I ask this because I tried to teach Dig to my Piloswine and I couldn't, after some research I discored that Piloswine can only learn Dig in Gen III or above)

I hope something like this happens in the future on the final version of this hack :)
Id go crazy if id get a shiny steelix :D

@Whitney
There will be no physical/special and i think the pokemon learn the same moves they could in gen 3 games

@Diego
Is Dunsparce available in this hack or it will be when you add trainers special events from phone card i believe that in crystal you can get this pokemon if Hiker Anthony calls you and tells that they appeared inside Dark Cave or something like that
And can you check if a npc inside Dark Cave gives you the DarkGlasses i think there was a bug in a older version i played some time ago he would not give me this item idk if it works ok now
Also will you add different sounds after Oak rates your pokedex like in Crystal?
Finally, since you changed how those pokemon evolve maybe you will want to change this guys dialogue

Uhm, have been reading arround but I couldn't find another case like mine, so here we go:

After letting the radio director free, he hands-off a Clear Bell which allows you to enter the Tin Tower. The bug appears when I try to head up to the third floor, the whole screen turns black and the game seems to keep going on (the speed shown on the VBA tool bar keeps in motion and so does the music).



Is at that place were the beta ends or is, in fact, a glitch?

O.o Sorry i removed the link, i tried the patch which i downloaded before this final fix for the day of the week and the new OWs and the time was fine except one thing Wesley who gives a Black Belt at Lake of Rage on Wednesday is missing maybe thats related to the time bug and maybe it got fixed with your last update i cant check it out now bc i just stopped playing the previous version at lake of rage :D
I also found a Hoothoot in a tree near the Sudowoodo event and the Pokedex shows that Hoothoots can be encountered in many places which is strange since night pokemon are not supposed to be in the hack for now
And something is wrong with those 3 apricorn trees there is nothing on them as if i already picked the apricorns

http://www2.picturepush.com/photo/a/11587560/img/11587560.png (http://picturepush.com/public/11587560)

Those trees on Route 46 seem to be out of place

The Apricorn trees and the border on Route 46 is fixed; I'm going to do a bit of research into Headbutt trees soon, because apparently, Bulbapedia is wrong.
Quick questions.
Is this game going to implement the Phisical/Special move categories introduced in gen IV, or is it going to be like in gen III and bellow?

Next Question.
Do the Pokemon in CrystalDust have GenII learnsets?
(I ask this because I tried to teach Dig to my Piloswine and I couldn't, after some research I discored that Piloswine can only learn Dig in Gen III or above)

Gym Leader Whitney~
1. Nope.
2. Gen III learnsets, but Gen II TM/HM programmings.
@Cyclone
Haha i deleted the save already this was my best playthrough ever i got a pitchu from the Odd Egg and catched a male shiny slowpoke within a couple of hours :D
I hope something like this happens in the future on the final version of this hack :)
Id go crazy if id get a shiny steelix :D

@Whitney
There will be no physical/special and i think the pokemon learn the same moves they could in gen 3 games

@Diego
Is Dunsparce available in this hack or it will be when you add trainers special events from phone card i believe that in crystal you can get this pokemon if Hiker Anthony calls you and tells that they appeared inside Dark Cave or something like that
And can you check if a npc inside Dark Cave gives you the DarkGlasses i think there was a bug in a older version i played some time ago he would not give me this item idk if it works ok now
Also will you add different sounds after Oak rates your pokedex like in Crystal?
Finally, since you changed how those pokemon evolve maybe you will want to change this guys dialogue

http://www2.picturepush.com/photo/a/11599525/img/11599525.png (http://picturepush.com/public/11599525)
Dunsparce does not appear in this hack as of yet. The BlackGlasses bug has been fixed, and the text about trade evolutions has also been fixed.
Uhm, have been reading arround but I couldn't find another case like mine, so here we go:

After letting the radio director free, he hands-off a Clear Bell which allows you to enter the Tin Tower. The bug appears when I try to head up to the third floor, the whole screen turns black and the game seems to keep going on (the speed shown on the VBA tool bar keeps in motion and so does the music).



Is at that place were the beta ends or is, in fact, a glitch?
Uh. What. The Tin Tower is not yet programmed into the game, except for the first floor. I'd be inclined to say that I have no clue how you even got to the second.

Also included in this update: a new wild Pokémon theme from tonti:
zP-_eXeouvk
Not only this, but (not shown in the video) a new battle backsprite for the male player is inserted, as well as a slightly updated female backsprite and new battle sprites for the male, female, and rival main characters!

I've come with another bug, although I think I've seen this somewhere before on this thread, but I'm not too sure. The bug I've come to mention is the phone memory bug, in which (my own experience so far) you only get one trainer's number (Joey) and you can't get the rest (so far Wade and Liz)

Thank you for the quickfixes and the new changes, i only checked the new male heros sprite and its better than the previous one maybe i will have a speedthrough to check the rest of the new content some time later or ill just wait for more content to be added before i play again.

@ Dingopongo lol glad to hear that the problem is solved now

@ PokeReject Thats a very old bug, you can register only a few trainers and Mom & Elm dont worry though after reading one of Diegos latest posts im now sure that soon there will be huge phone card update :D


Btw Diego what about the Week Siblings and the Dudes Catching Tutorial bugs i posted earlier did you found a way to fix them and will you change the music that plays every time when Oak rates your Pokedex?
In Crystal a different music would play every time that you have catched 9-10 more new Pokemon.

Theres 1 weird thing about the animation that plays when a Pokemon or more in your party are poisoned,When playing with Gameboid theres only that sound playing when you are walking but On My Boy! Emulator there is the same sound playing but also an animation...
I guess this is an issue with Gameboid because its outdated and there is nothing wrong in the hack

Prof. Oak's PC might have different music in the future.

I believe that there is a hidden Nugget somewhere in this place but i didnt found any

I have 1 space left in my party but i get this when i try to get an ABRA
I can get it if i have 2 free spaces

Some times theres no option of YES/NO for this npc when she asks if the player wants to register her in the phone but some times she asks...

The reflection of the player appears in those flowers when you surf in that spot

Both npcs who are near the sick miltank got weird characters in their dialogues while the miltank is sick and when it becomes healthy their dialogues dont get updated and remain the same

And this happened after i left the Farm
http://i50.tinypic.com/ay0uuf.png

The clock stopped and its always night ingame i stopped playing because of this bug :(

Btw is it normal if my pokemons current hp wont incease when it lvl ups while its max hp increases
For example if my pokemon had 2/34 hp and by lvl up it gets +2 hp and it haves 2/36 hp instead of 4/36
This happens when my pokemon are almost ready to faint and the hp bar is red.
Edit: This Doesnt happens in Emerald

And i wonder if getting stars in the trainers card will unlock some ingame dialogues (after the crystal original events are over) with some npcs like in hg/ss with nurse Joy having extra dialogues when the player gets some stars.
Also will npcs recognize the player as a champion after he becomes the champion?

As for the updates the male and female heros sprites and Bugsys & Whitneys OWs are awesome and the new wild pokemon theme is very cool nice job guys

Hmm i guess you will have to get the Ruby and Sapphire and have all the other requirements in your fr/lg games as for CrystalDust i think you will need to have the national dex because you needed it in emerald but since Diego changed the pokedex now Johto and Kanto Pokemon are registered so maybe he did enabled the national dex from the start of the game...

I love the new Pokedex design great job tonti!

I found a small bug, Im not sure if you are aware of this problem so ill just let you know that i get this when i try to compare the size of a Pokemon with the size of the Player

You shouldn't be able to go there yet. Within the last page, this was addressed:

I found my heracross near the pokemon center near the union cave i used headbutt on a tree which can be blocked in Fridays when a weekly sibling stands there.
You can also encounter Aipoms in that tree ;)

Diego do you plan on having team magma & aqua on sevii since there will be 3 gen pokemon there those teams would fit well and make them search for Groudon n Kyogre or something like that and make those 2 pokemon be encountered after you defeat the teams
You could even add team rocket there and have some epic war between them with some strong trainers (Silver, Lance or key characters from other regions) helping you fight the teams :D

I was also wondering if you can make buttons l or r to open pokegear

1. It's Orange Islands that he's putting in, I believe.
2. I vote no for this, even though Diego said OI will have it's own story. If OI's going to have it's own story, I feel it should be less "fanfic-like" than say... Liquid Crystal has been inserting for some unknown reason.

Btw a question about the pokemon that appear at different times of a day you said that you will add them even if Advance Map wont be updated but will you add them in the same locations from Crystal or different locations?

And lol will you add pokemon OWs in sevii islands it would be nice to see pokemon in towns there are not many pokemons outside of the grass and battles id love to see more pokemons rather than always seeing only human npcs :d

Btw a question about the pokemon that appear at different times of a day you said that you will add them even if Advance Map wont be updated but will you add them in the same locations from Crystal or different locations?

And lol will you add pokemon OWs in sevii islands it would be nice to see pokemon in towns there are not many pokemons outside of the grass and battles id love to see more pokemons rather than always seeing only human npcs :d
The Pokémon should pear at their normal locations from Crystal. And I might add in more Pokémon overworld in Sevii, but anything related to Sevii is still a long way away.
That's good :)....btw I just got a poliwag how can I evolve it into a politoad without trading???
Level it up once holding the item it needed to hold during a link trade otherwise.
Awe man! This is just sweet, just what i hoped for a Crystal remake on a Emerald based rom! This is going to be great!
Thanks for the praise!

By the way, small update today which fixes the bugs recently reported by ElitePokes (minus the HP bug; currently looking into that). However, a few small bugs from earlier still persist. These will be fixed within the next week or maybe as soon as tomorrow.

I apologize if this has been asked already but is there a physical special move split in here? I understand the original didn't, but when it was remade to HG/SS it was found there too. It would be really awesome if this does include it, if not its still cool as I can shred teams up with elemental punch alakazam. On another note, so far everything is amazing. It's unbelievable what you have done, I look forward to the next update.

I think you're getting Togegetic and Togekiss mixed up. xD This hack doesn't contain any 4th gen or 5th gen Pokemon to my knowledge so I'm fairly sure Togekiss is unavailable, I'm sorry to say. I personally love it (serene grace ftw) but yeah, it's not available. Having said that, I wouldn't mine 4th gen being introduced, but I guess that's up to diegoisawesome (that, and I would doubt they would be implemented until at least the hack was finished/reached the Sevii Islands.)

And awwww. :( As many would agree, you were amazing at picking up errors etc. Good luck with life and a merry Christmas to you too (and everyone else of course.) :t225:

That would ruin the point of him saying that movesets are now based on 2nd gen. He changed it to that for a reason, instead of leaving it (as it is a 3rd gen hack so it was there by default)

I think they tried to make LC be a little later than the original Crystal, in that the characters may be different, new things may be added, etc. However, I do agree; if you plan a "remake", then things should be identical. Thus, this is the better hack.

This is true. People have different tastes and interests, and I think LC, CD, and HG/SS together fit into the main remake niches.

I'm trying to change the starter Pokemon in CrystalDust using the Universal Pokemon Randomizer. I select Psyduck, Mantine, and Mantine, and save to a new rom file. But when I play the new rom, it still presents the starter Pokemon from CrystalDust, not the ones I chose.

What's wrong?

--

Are Mew and/or MewTwo catchable in Pokemon CrystalDust like in Emerald?

If not, is there a reliable Emerald code that spawns a random Mew?

Can we get a definitive list of catchable Pokemon and compatible movesets for Pokemon CrystalDust?

It's unclear whether Mew and/or MewTwo are obtainable in CrystalDust.

It's also unclear whether movesets are closer to Gen II, where very few Pokemon can learn specific HMs, or closer to Gen III, where most Pokemon can learn many HMs.

Could we clear up some of the differences between CrystalDust, the official Crystal, the official Emerald, and the official HeartGold?

I've fixed the first bug in today's patch. The second one isn't a bug, it happens in Crystal too. The third one may be because you have too many things in your inventory. I'll fix it later.
And yeah, the colors are a lot better now due to the new DN system.

If not, is there a reliable Emerald code that spawns a random Mew? You shouldn't use GameShark codes on hacks.

Can we get a definitive list of catchable Pokemon and compatible movesets for Pokemon CrystalDust? Catchable Pokémon are the same as in Crystal daytime, and learnable moves (not TM moves) are the same as Emerald.

It's unclear whether Mew and/or MewTwo are obtainable in CrystalDust.

It's also unclear whether movesets are closer to Gen II, where very few Pokemon can learn specific HMs, or closer to Gen III, where most Pokemon can learn many HMs. TM and HM assignments are identical to Crystal.

Could we clear up some of the differences between CrystalDust, the official Crystal, the official Emerald, and the official HeartGold? How about ou play the game and see for yourself?
Responses in bold. And please, if I don't respond right away, give it a few hours or days. Please don't spam posts with essentially the same questions.

And now, we bring you today's update: the GB Player update!
The GB Player from HGSS (or GB Sounds in English games) has been inserted into CrystalDust! However, it's of a much higher quality. Some songs still have issues and sound effects haven't been ported, but it's pretty much working as it should.

To get it in-game, go to the questionnaire in any Pokémon Mart and type in the phrase "GAME BOY MUSIC PLEASE". The clerk will then give you the GB Player. The next update should have a way to be informed about this from within the game itself and have a questionnaire within the Goodenrod Dept. Store.

I'm actually playing this game, just have to beat the rockets in the radio tower at the moment.
I just wanted to say that i really like this remake version of crystal with the emerald rom. One thing that impressed me a lot, was the graphics: not a genius in this sector, but i don't know why, i like them so much, feels like playing the original game but with more life.
The story is much like the original game, and so i can't judge that. I just wanted to say that this hack is coming out pretty well and i'm really enjoying it. Have all my support for it, great job, soon i'll try even your other hack that i only started but haven't continued. Keep the wonderful work ;)

We should always praise hackers as they really put lot of their life in making a hack. Both LC and Crystal Rock in different ways
Everything needs criticism. If it wasn't for criticism, hacks turn to crap because the hacker assumes that everything doesn't have any bugs, nothing is unbalanced, and everything flows well.

Many get missed. It's just the whole thing about having more than one pair of eyes looking at the same thing.

But anyway, back to the subject. I was wondering, since Diego's last post was about codes and such... will there be a merchant that will sell every TM/consumable item there is VERY VERY late in the game for use in postgame? Just curious is all. Yet Another Fire Red Hack had one right before the E4, and it was a neat idea that worked well but this is GSC so it should be in faaaar later.

Found a bug with the GB Player if you turn it on or off very fast (with they SELECT key) when you enter a new area there will be no music at all.

Hey i was thinking if you can a make a repel system for emerald similar to the Port of the BW2 Repel system to GBA released by a guy in this forums for firered version

And you could add weather in Johto and Kanto too atleast in special towns or routes or extra places you may add in those 2 regions after GSC story
Like adding snow in the town with the ice gym or near the cave etc
Weather didnt exist in the original crystal but that was most likely due to limitations and it has nothing to do with the story so you could add it lol :P

I agree about the Repel system- I loved that from B2/W2 and it wouldn't have a massive affect on the 'experience'. :)

As for weather, eeeeh. It was one of the things of LC I didn't really like and why I know you're not suggesting the same, if it was intended I think they would have done it in HG/SS (which they didn't.) :x I think weather in the Sevii Islands would be cool where Diego can pretty much do whatever he likes. :)

Also, just wondering, but did you get my Chuck overworld sprites? :) /kindapostingthisatadlate.

First off, I just wanna say I love your hack. But the way the time works just isn't the same as in Crystal. If you want it to be more accurate, I would recommend removing the dark tint you added for evening. It just looks like someone turned down the brightness setting. Doesn't look to good imo. Morning, day, and night all look amazing though. Just that evening.. oohh.
Also in gen II, night starts at 6:00 PM. You had it set so evening began at 5:00 which is a little early, I think. Night should start where you have it, it's perfectly fine. Just that evening seems kind of unnecessary.

I understand that you're probably busy at the time, but please just consider these changes. It would make the hack so much more like Crystal (better, too!) and maybe adding Phanpy on Route 46 and Hoothoot on Route 29? :D

Is it possible for you to make the date/time customize-able? You see, I foolishly picked Sunday when MOM asked what day it was, and now it is always Sunday. This is inconvenient because I do not have access to the Bug Catching Contest, the Move Tutor, and all other events that don't happen on Sunday.

I know you are trying to make an exact replica of Crystal, but why not correct some the original game's faults? For example, Houndoom is only catchable in the Kanto region. I have no clue why they would have a JOHTO Pokemon exclusively in the KANTO region. I can't think of any others right now, but I'm sure you know of a few other faults.

P.S. Fantastic job on the music. I played SoulSilver and their music SUCKS compared to yours. Seriously, on the replayable scale, the music is 10 for 10.

The RTC is enabled. The time changes but the day does not. I just think it would be extremely convenient for us, Pokefans, to be able to change the date/time to fit our individual needs.

It would definitely be a distinguishing feature for this crystal hack. More people would want to play this one over others such as Liquid Crystal.

Looks like you already posted the reply of my question. So i have nothing to say more except the game play which is way too cool. Reminds me quite a lot of the original story.
Thanks!
Awesome work with the Day/Night system actually being proper and real hardware finally working! Definitely what I've been waiting for to get back into playing again.
Awesome, can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!
where can i get evo stones like leaf for my weepinbell ?
You can't in this beta, sorry.
This game looks promising, with lit up windows at night, and the GB player. Question, what are you going to do about the 25 extra slots between celebi and treecko?
Does anything say I have to use them? I might use one for Mikachu for a Shining Opal crossover, but that would be all.
I'm actually playing this game, just have to beat the rockets in the radio tower at the moment.

Well, it wasn't really due to the fact that I'm busy. It was glitches, problems that took me ages to solve, and then I guess life did have an impact on the delay, especially since I had driving classes which were every day after school until late at night for a while.

That's really limiting your options for hacks. Most hacks aren't done and will never be because they were abandoned by their authors.

I might add in some weather in Sevii, but the repel system still has bugs and it's not something I would want to take the time to port anyways. I mean, I've ported less important things in the past, but...
Also, just wondering, but did you get my Chuck overworld sprites? :) /kindapostingthisatadlate.
/kindareplyingtothisatadlate
Yes, I did get your sprites, and they're in the newest beta if you want to check them out in-game.
this hack is good and I play it on my phone and the tiles bring back some memories of Siver/Gold like with the headbutt trees but I'm only at Violet City so far

You can beat the Elite Four and Champion and watch the credits, and then you can't go any farther.
First off, I just wanna say I love your hack. But the way the time works just isn't the same as in Crystal.

I understand that you're probably busy at the time, but please just consider these changes. It would make the hack so much more like Crystal (better, too!) and maybe adding Phanpy on Route 46 and Hoothoot on Route 29? :D
To me, I felt as if the transition from day to night was a little abrupt, so I added in the afternoon colors. Before, it was pretty much really, really red before I made the colors how they are now. And I am not going to go through the effort of changing the color tint now, sorry.
first of all,i really love your hack about crystal version.Support u to keep go on~

The first bug is an issue with the phone which I am hoping to sort out sometime when I get the chance. The second bug has been fixed in today's patch.
lets skip the shining opal and finish this first. we all want it!
Except me. I want to work on Shining Opal as much as I want to work on CrystalDust, maybe more because it's my original story and I get to have more fun with it.

Currently iam in blackthorn city
If you need to know where a Pokémon is, look up where it is in Crystal. They have the same areas in CrystalDust.
The RTC is enabled. The time changes but the day does not. I just think it would be extremely convenient for us, Pokefans, to be able to change the date/time to fit our individual needs.

It would definitely be a distinguishing feature for this crystal hack. More people would want to play this one over others such as Liquid Crystal.
Well, that's why I went through the trouble of making a settable clock and day of the week in the beginning of the game, whereas LC just spits out your computer time. If you update to the emulator on my site, the day of the week should work fine.
hey i just finished pokemom league stuf, now what to do?
Am i, go to explore KANTO, or any thing else, w8ing 4 the reply thanx
Sorry, that's when this beta ends.
Does Diego still read this forum?
In fact, yes I do. I've also been known to post updates occasionally and respond to posters when not working on an update.
Have some more faith in me! I'm not abandoning PC.
Idk if Diego reads this topic but i know that he visits PC...

Tho i would love to know whats going with this hack and Shining Opal there was not any updates or posts for a long time lol
In fact, I get email updates every time there's a post here. I've just been trying not to post here because I wanted to focus on the update.
Anybody know where i can find a HootHoot? I've checked on Route 29 like in the original game, but I haven't found it. Just started playing it, great hack!
Night and morning Pokémon haven't been added yet, sorry.

Well, that's what I get for abandoning this thread for two months.
Now, onto what I've been working on for that time.
I present to you...

The Perfectionist Update
In this update, I've done two big (to me) things:
1. Moved the clock setting sequence in the intro to be before Oak's introduction speech.
2. Made stairs have the stair climbing animation from FireRed.

I realize that this may seem like something small, but I assure you, it took quite some time to get it all working just the way I wanted it to. And personally, I think it improves the professionalism of the hack by a great deal. Download it from the site in the first post, as per usual.

Oh yeah, there's also a little something I wanted to bring to everyone's attention:
http://i.imgur.com/c5piqc5.png
When I saw this, I was stunned. To think that CrystalDust beat Liquid Crystal... It was a huge honor to even get into the top three, let alone get second place! Thanks, guys, for all your support. This award wouldn't be possible without your bug reports, your ideas, and most of all, the fact that you play the game. That's what keeps me going. You playing this. Without that, I think this wouldn't be half the hack it is today.

Once again guys, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

And now onto the more minor, but still awesome awards:

Thanks again, and let's make sure we get first this year!

So I think (if I understand correctly) that there was an update today.

I went to o15.com and downloaded the Beta 2 version. Is that the latest update, or is there a small patches section I missed?

Yes it is the latest version you get it from the same link

Dude! How can you NOT check the most important event of ROM hacking section?!
Obviously Light Platinum won (because everyone wanted it finally out of nominations xD).

I decided to give this hack a try after seeing the screenshots of it. Although i haven't reach the first gym leader yet, i can tell by all the details regarding the environment and the character models that a lot of work was put into this. The sounds of everything is magnificent, and the lights of the houses at night really make this game stand out from the rest. Even the main character's sprites are beautifully done. I will provide you more feedback once i advance more into the game. Overall, this is the best hack i have played so far because of the quality of it

Thanks for the comment! And about the year: 2012 is the year I released Beta 2, so it's going to stay 2012 until I update it to Beta 3.

The issue with Shining Opal is that I haven't really been working on it as much as I'd like. But once I have some big news, I'll inform everyone about it.

Uhh... what?

Anyways, today's post is about a small new update that probably doesn't affect many people: the stuff that happens when you lose to Silver and the choice boxes that overlap the textbox (the day of the week and the apricorns). I've added in the gloating text for Silver and the fact that you can lose the first battle against him and still continue playing. Also, the choice boxes scroll down instead of overlapping the textbox.

Download the new patch from the same link as usual (in the first post).

I've a question regarding pokemon evolution o.o
At which lvl evolve those pokemon which are supposed to be transferred to another game in order to evolve? (Kadabra -> Alakazam, Scyther -> Scizor, etc...)
Ps Great work you did, this game is awesome.

Try changing your ROM and patch it again by the IPS file.

Hey! Diego...
Good Going with the CrystalDust...
I was thinking, is it possible to add the level up effect(the blue things or lines that pop up around pokemon while leveling up) from firered to crystaldust...
I know its a small detail but since u r making it FR style, it would be nice...
Good Luck! & keep us updating...

I think you should redownload the patched you did so before today, because...

Today I bring you guys the Indigo Plateau Update!
Changes:
1. Made the Indigo Plateau and the rooms of the Elite Four and Champion resemble more closely their GSC counterparts. Credits to Project Platinum for making the new rooms and to tonti for egging me on to import them.
2. Finally fixed the tiny bugs with the legendary beasts (bad sprites and wrong cry order).
All I can say is have fun!

Even though i have already beaten the Elite Four, i am still enjoying the game by exploring it more. The small updates that you keep making is worth it because it shows you really care about the game and the people that play it. I am glad to see this kind of responsibly. I must say that this hack is the best i have ever played! :)

Nice 2 more reasons to try the newest beta xD

1. Why can't we get into the bed at home(New Bark Town)? It's blocked, i can't go to sleep, lol...
2. I think, the overworld sprite for Gold(Hero) can get a little more better.
3. BTW, have you considered about adding some move tutors for 3rd Gen moves since CD contains all the TMs from the original 2nd Gen Crystal...you can add some of the move tutors aroud johto & kanto just as Firered did... I think, it will not hurt the authenticity of the game as its Gen 3 remake.

Awesome to know that my sprites are in. I'm glad you liked them. ^^ Also, a massive congrats on the awards- they're very well deserved. :D I think I might try out the newest version right now- I'm quite curious as to what the League looks like now and it seems to have been a while since I last played. xD
