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! :)
Thanks a lot!
Nice 2 more reasons to try the newest beta xD

Btw can u check if u lose gold after losing the 1st battle to Silver in Crystal, i tried the new patch and after losing to him i still had 3000
If you lose to Silver in Crystal, you don't pay him any money.
@Diego
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.
1. Fixed in today's beta.
2. I think it's fine just the way it is.
3. Move tutors are really tedious to add in, but I might think about it for Kanto.
Whether it is possible to add the random weather as in pokemon fire red?
You mean as in Liquid Crystal? Hahahaha no. I personally disliked that feature.
However, if you're talking about just having different weather in some places, I think Sevii Islands might have some.
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
Awesome! Tell me what you think!

Orange Islands is for LC. I already took the Sevii Islands, and well, I don't even have room for them.
Diegoisawesome can u email me at [email protected] plz thanks. :)
Uh, why don't you just send me a PM?

Anyways, today's update fixes a few minor bugs and finally makes Dude's Pokémon catching tutorial work as it did in Crystal. Try it out if you want to see for yourself!

Thx diegoisawesome for a version very interesting. But I have a problem: the pokegear registered only 3 telephone number, one of mom, one of prof. elm, one of Joey, and when I meet a new trainer, it no more registered. You can explain? Thank you.
And at last I'm so sorry for my bad English! ._.

So, Diego, I gave the hack a playthrough until the Pokémon League and I have to say you've done a pretty good job :). I think the only noticeable thing missing from the game is the sliding panel puzzles from the Ruins of Alph. I think you've incorporated Emerald's features well and I'm liking the official stock tiles and stock-looking custom tiles and animations; everything looks consistent which is somewhat of a rarity nowadays :D!

As a suggestion, I think you should change some Pokemon sprite animations because I find Emerald's sprites a little horrible looking at times. I think having some revamped ones from Crystal would make the experience a little more nostalgic. Like I said, this is some great work though!

About this space limit is there any way to bypass it?

Thanks for another small update since i didnt start playing yet i will start from this latest patch if i have any free time (500 updates will be released probably before i can play lol)

As for what Zeikku said i agree, i hate how Rattatas look xD
I Know that its lots of work but could you work on changing all the 386 pokemons sprites in the future
Sprites that wasnt used in any other game or hack would make this hack more unique
Or revamped sprites from Crystal like he suggested

I had problems going into the cave after the random PokeCentre close to the guy selling Slowpoketail. It gave me the black screen (dramatic music). I also got the black screen when I entered the road to the Ruins of Alph (closest to Sudowoodo) and the other one (also towards RoA but the road is from the east). They all give me the (absolutely lovely) black screen.

I haven't figured out yet how to add trainers in to the Phone Card correctly. Joey is just a coincidence.

There's no way to just bypass it easily. Besides, I don't need to as I'm not including the Orange Islands.

This has been fixed in today's update. It turns out that the Ruins of Alph music for the GB Player was broken. Download the new version to continue playing.

Your bug doesn't seem to be a problem with me. Are you sure you're fishing Emerald's way?
Magnemite should still have a 5% chance to hold a Metal Coat.
Celebi's event has not been made yet.

Today, there's a small update to the GB Player. Everything should sound a bit more accurate now.

Based off of Pokémon Emerald (U)
Features:Why people want to play this and not Liquid Crystal some other remake
Awesome! I love it so much and I can't wait for the final release <3 I also tried the multiplayer functionality using the VBA-Link wireless adapter and it works perfect, like the original Emerald version. No lag or communication errors at all. Please DO NOT REMOVE this awesome thing from your game! All the other good hacks I've played ( Liquid Crystal, Flora Sky, Light Platinum ) have the multiplayer removed or it is corrupted and bugged. Please make it like the original Pokemon Crystal and keep the multiplayer feature alive as it is now. Even if your rom runs out of space, remove something else but keep the multiplayet intact!!!!
I am 21 and I love remember the good old times with my friends... We use Hamatchi to play online Emerald, and now your hack offer us a great single player too, exactly like original pokemon Crystal, my favourite game of all times.

April 25th, 2013, 10:00 AM
So i won the elite 4 and lance and i liked the changes in the rooms the hack didnt had any bugs until the end when i won lance i teleported to violet town after the credits
Also finally all the week siblings appear now and the time bugs with gameboid are fixed.. except a new little problem kurt never gives me a ball after 1 day and i cant enter the bug catching contest after i compete once...
And a small graphical glitch when i evolved slowpoke to slowking while i was holding a kings rock some black boxes appear for 1 sec this happened with politoed too so it has to do with pokes that evolve while holding an item

April 25th, 2013, 11:26 PM

Um, hey there everyone. I've encountered a problem with freezing in-game.
I just finished beating clair and i've recieved the master ball from Prof. Elm.
When i set foot to kanto, the game freezes.

I've already set foot here once in order to get the moon stone inside tohjo falls and it didn't freeze before.

Please help! I really love this hack, And i really wanna finish it because GSC was the first ever pokemon game i've played, and out of all the GSC hacks i've played, this is the one I love the best. Nostalgia feels all over.

Please help me :((( thanks in advance

Awesome stuff, I'll be sure to download and give it a play soon.

Two tiny things that I've noticed however, from the screenies you have on show, are that the rocket executives you're fighting in the screen below are both simply called "TEAM ROCKET EXECUTIVE"

http://o15.com/w/images/0/09/CrystalDust_lancecoop.png

(Maybe think about giving them more distinguishable names, like "ROCKET EXECUTIVE MICHAEL" and "ROCKET EXECUTIVE LANEY")

and that you have "CUTS" in all caps in the the next screen below, where it probably shouldn't be for continuities sake.

http://o15.com/w/images/a/ad/CrystalDust_farfetchd.png

(It's typically only nouns that are capitalised. CUT would be capitalised as it's the name of a move, but not the action of cutting)

I haven't thumbed through all the pages in here so I apologize if these have already been pointed out.

Anyways, as of late I've worked on 2 themes that you guys probably won't be hearing until the next beta is released, so I figure I'd let you guys listen to them early.

Awesome! I've been playing the hack for the past two weeks and I have not encounter any bugs or something annoying at all! The only thing it might should be improved in the next beta is the regional map full view. Personally I like the pallete and graphic details better in Liquid Crystal town map.

The first one is simply keeping with the way GSC had it. I don't want to give them names they didn't already have *coughHGSScough*. And the second one? The S after an all-caps word has been capitalized since Gen II. I used to have it the other way, but I ended up changing it back.

I'm really interested in this hack, as Crystal was my first Pokemon game. The main story is finished, correct?
The Johto story is finished. Kanto is a work in progress.
i can't wait for the Beta 3!!!!!!!! i hope there's a new pokemon like 4th or 5th gen :)
What would they do in 2nd generation remake?
Exactly.
We just download the latest patch from the wiki site right? Is there anyway of telling if it is the latest patch?
Well, it does say "Download the Latest CrystalDust Patch" as the download link, so I'd assume that's the latest. ;)

Was it in the 2nd generation? No. There's no point in adding it.

People seem to be too demanding from the other hacks...
You guys should really understand that this is supposed to be 2nd generation remake and quoting diego "Most accurate one". So you shouldn't suggest things that do not exist in 2nd generation.

Ok, I few things:
*Why is the Mach bike put in instead of the normal bike/acro bike? I find the Mach bike not really useful and I'm pretty sure crystal had a normal bike
*I've only got 2 trainers registered on my phone card, Dana and Joey.
*If you look at the area tab on the Pokedex the map is really distorted.
*Berries don't regrow! I know that my Real Time Clock works since the weekdays and lapras work and the in-game time is synced with my actual time.

I finished the newest beta and I liked it very much, the tiles from fr/lg work nicely as well as the custom leaves and trees that can be cut. I just wanted to point out some suggestions and errors that i have found.

errors:
Farfetch'd as a missing animation when moving (it floats), i hope this gets addressed in the future beta.

Suggestions:
Contrary to rby, gsc had a different pokemon used during surf (most likely a lapras) i was hoping if it would be possible to request for a custom surf animation to compensate for this as the current animation (which uses fire red/ leaf greens) resembles the rby surf animation (a seel/ dewgong looking pokemon) (you can search for the old sprites as reference)

*Why is the Mach bike put in instead of the normal bike/acro bike? I find the Mach bike not really useful and I'm pretty sure crystal had a normal bike Well, I don't have Acro Bike sprites, so I'm using the Mach Bike until I can get its speed down.

The first glitch is because I don't have walking frames for it. The second one is because I frankly have no idea how to make the tree wiggle like it did in GSC.
The next two have been fixed in today's update. I hope you like my new custom girl walking sprites!
And the last one is the same as the second one: I don't have sprites for that so I made do with what I had.

So today's update is small: the Pokédex location map has been fixed and so have the female running sprites.

I don't know if it's the issue with your emulator or not, but you should get GBA.Emu or Retroarch (you might want to put down the money for .emu if you don't want to wade through a whole bunch of setup time) either way.

Almost everything else is gpsp based and/or just copies of gameboid which is a HORRIBLE thing for testing or playing hacks audio-wise at least, those two mentioned are VBA-M (basically VBA with all fan projects and improvements mixed inside of it, what most people who know what they're doing suggest now for GBA, much better sound by the way) based, which means if you're still having problems it's not an android issue and should be on PCs as well as they're right on the same mark as them. Your emulation playing will thank you in general anyway if your device is fast enough.

@Ash which is exactly why people are shifting away from old, outdated PSP emulators as their base for applications. I for one find playing portable emulators a bit more rewarding on a portable thingy.

Now that aside... it may very well be a gpsp-only bug, but I have no idea why such a thing would be. o.O

It should work, mine migrated okay. Just make sure they're all matching names and whatnot. One minor thing to keep in mind is that there's one flaw to the emulator: GBA.emu doesn't have a savetype selection menu yet, but it's coming later and that only effected one hack I play. It autodetects for every game I throw at it just as fine as the PC version, just remember that if there's a hack that requires you to do it on VBA you're in savestate land for a while.

None of those emulators are compatible with my phoneThat can unfortunately happen. :/

You can "sideload" Retroarch just fine (it's free, they actually provide alt. links to download in their own forums), you can try it but something tells me that you might not have the power in your phone to run it so you should probably stick with MyBoy (it's better than Gameboid, pretty much just that but upgraded with sound fixes and other improvements. You won't even miss anything if you have the free version.)

Yeah, I ended up finding out what it was: there's a flag that's set when you set the clock that was being reset when the Oak intro sequence was done. I moved where that flag was set and it works fine now. Oh, and it was sporadic about whether the glitch would occur or not: it happened half the time on VBA on my PC too. But only when starting a new game.

I have question, how about legendary pkmn quest (like celebi, ho-oh, lugia)
whether it will be added in the next beta ?

Sorry for my bad english :)

Legendaries will have their story in future betas xD

@Joseph17Prophet
I guess this is a bug and game freezes if you try to catch anothers trainer pokemon or a once in a time only random freeze if you want save game and try to catch another trainers pokemon and see if the game freezes or not

Well i took your advice and tried to replicate the glitch, it wasn't hard. I tried to catch the zubat of the red haired girl rocket in slowpoke well and the game froze again. I wonder what causes a freeze like this?

So while i was battling the first firebreather trainer in union cave I got distracted and when went back to playing the game I thought I was battling a wild pokemon and tried to catch but right as the game said that I used a pokeball it froze. On an unrelated note, this game is awesome! I cant wait for the next update.

I didn.t change anything about the basement in the latest patch. I made it like in Crystal, where every time you took the elevator, it would change the boxes. If you only stepped into the elevator then back out, it wouldn't trigger (like in Crystal).

It was probably that the random number generator kept generating the same number every time (I've had that happen to me for six consecutive tries). And that guy, as well as the other salespeople down there, haven't been added yet.

Joseph17Prophet

What would you say makes this a better option for me to play rather than Liquid Crystal?

that depends on what you are looking for. Liquid Crystal is almost done (if not already, I havent checked in a while) and also has a bit more story added, some new characters, new areas, and and different diculty level. Crystal Dust stops after you defeat the elite four with just some catchable pokmon missing (night, some legendaries, and 3rd gen) but it is as close to a direct gba remake of crystal you will ever get. I felt I was a kid again playing pokemon for the first time. Also deigoisawesome is very active for a rom hacker and has so far been really dedicated to his work (which is a rare feature when it comes to rom hackers becuase a lot just quite after a few betas). The beta on his website get with bug fixs when he finds them and he is currently wirking on kanto region.

Actually Liquid Crystal is on Haitus last I checked, but that's beside the point. Here's why I prefer CD:
>Less bugs
>Story stays true to the original, no extra plot and what's added after Red will probably be avoidable.
>Bug Catching.
>Emerald advantage is used very well.
They're both great, but that's about the gist.

Hopefully it will be finished sooner or later.

It seemed you are the only person who have managed to hack the glowing colour of rayquazas shilouette and the green colour when the Pokémon logo comes in.

That would be really cool for all Emerald hackers.

And that revamped crystal opening is stunning, I like the colors used in it, and that seismic toss effect on suicune and the unowns works perfect. :)

Some problems I've found during my play of the newest beta:
When i turn on the GB Player, there's no nostalgic sounds (mute background), when i go back to the original fr/lg sounds, the sounds do come back though.

edit:

also i'd like to know if this can be changed:
http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/blue_orangepatrick2006/pokedex_listing_zps79e56a44.png
I think the texts went past the margin (to be much near the orange borderlines of the dex entry), can this be adjusted so that they are centered only on the white space? :)

note that there are quite a lot of pokemon that have this, onix, and bellsprout to name a few, i haven't obtained much in my dex to distinguish each and every pokemon.

I've promised myself that I would work on Shining Opal until the next beta was released and not progress any on CrystalDust's story, and I'm going to keep that promise. Though I release periodic updates with new features and whatnot, I try to work on Shining Opal as much as I can.
And as for new legendary events, of course I'll have them in for Beta 3.

Now for an announcement. Coming soon to CrystalDust, an amazing creation by shiny quagsire:
GawzjtiBL8A
Available right after I sort out my IRL stuff.
I knew this would come after shiny_quagsire released his stuff. Good work S_Q!

I was wondering, even though this is supposed to be a "99%" accurate remake of Pokemon Crystal, are you going to input some aesthetic changes like the BW2 Repel System By Darthatron or mugshots with every battle or even Pokemon following you? But I love this hack, and I hope by the next beta I can still use my old save file.

I grew up with Red and an original gameboy but Silver/Crystal were the pokemon games that really struck a chord with me, so this is great to be able to replay it ~13 years later.

I also wanted to report that Elm doesn't acknowledge my Togepi hatched. Using VBA-M 1.8.0 and save states.

I've played through Olivine City so far, and I have to say good job. I'm impressed as to how you ported over many little details from FR/LG, such as the stair-climbing animation.

Here are just little quirks I wrote down as I was playing through:
-Congratulations on actually using a custom sprite for the mother. I'm tired of seeing G/S/C remakes that uses the FR/LG mom, even though in the original G/S/C, Red's mom and Gold's mom had different sprites. But anyways, good job :)

-Asking for daylight savings time is kinda stupid, and it's confusing to say yes or no. Why not just let us reset the time whenever we want? I know that you're trying to be as accurate to the original Crystal as possible, but asking for daylight savings time is just plain obsolete in today's age, where we can change the time of our smart phones whenever we want. Also this would allow flashcart users like me to play time-based events, such as the Bug Catching Contest.

-I hate the New Bark Town music you're using. I've heard it in so many G/S/C remakes. They're terrible remixes that hardly take advantage of the Sappy engine's capabilities. Although I saw that you mentioned earlier that it's being changed, so that's good.

-Elm's Lab remix is just plain terrible

-you should probably change the Emerald Match Call jingle to a remix of the PokeGear phone number jingle

-Loving the PokeGear graphic!

-G/S/C had different trees for Kanto and Johto, but you're just using the FR/LG tree, just like every other G/S/C remake :/ But you've acknowledged that in the past, so it's good to know that it will get changed by the final.

-Congratulations on actually having a regional dex instead of giving us the National Dex, that's the first I've seen in a G/S/C remake. Good job :)

-Can't stand the regular battle music either. I hear it too much, and it doesn't sound very FR/LG-ish, all I hear is that stupid electric guitar instrument.

-Should the PokeManiac really be using the male Cooltrainer OW sprite? Knowing you, it was probably intentional, but they have no resemblance to each other whatsoever.

-In the original G/S/C, PokeManiac Isaac (Goldenrod Tunnel) had a Lickitung that specifically knew the move Cut. I'm pretty sure it doesn't know Cut in your hack, might want to fix that for accuracy.

-Goldenrod City music is great

-The very beginning of the evolution music sounds wonky

-The Town Map poster graphic that's inside of many houses is exactly the same as FR/LG, which is wrong because the map depicts the shape of Kanto

-In the original G/S/C, Psychic Greg (Route 37) had a Drowzee that specifically knew the moves Hypnosis and Dream Eater, hence his dialogue. In CrystalDust, he just has a regular Drowzee, so I would fix that just for accuracy.

-In the Burned Tower, would it really have been that hard to make the beasts actually jump around, instead of... "fly" around? It just looks really unprofessional.

-You really shouldn't be using the FR/LG Channler sprite for the Medium Trainer class, because they are two separate, distinct Trainer classes

-I encountered a wild Tentacool by WALKING behind the lighthouse

-unchanged 8-bit GBC tiles in the lighthouse... this is a joke, right? -_- Those 16-bit staircases look really out of place here.

I'll play through up to the Elite Four whenever I have time. This hack is a great Crystal remake, the only problems I have with it are problems I had with the original G/S/C, so from a 100%-nostalgic-remake point-of-view, I have to say this hack is definitely one of the more-polished hacks that I've played. I love how it doesn't feel like I'm playing a noob hack, it feels like I'm actually playing a Pokémon game. I'll definitely be looking forward to the next release!

I guess, I have some sort of bug: after obtaining the badge in Goldenrod, I went to National Park and Sudowoodo tree, but when I tried to go back for squirtbottle, Rockets were everywhere. They block my path to the flower shop, and I can't get to the third floor of Radio Tower to obtain Basement Key and proceed with Rocket's quest (originally it must appear after 7th gym or something like that, after phone call, and no one should block my way to the 3rd floor in that case).

Hound of Justice
September 13th, 2013, 08:27 AM
I played again to check the graphics update, i like the new elms lab and Goldenrod looks even better now :)

2 bugs that i found with My Boy Emu 1.5.10:

* The guy who gives miracle seed is bugged he gives me infinity seeds IF I TALK to him when i face him from ABOVE

* After Togepi hatches if i call elm or visit him nothing happens he just saying to call him if the egg changes

Note that i was using speed up from the emulators menu so that could cause those if you have free time you could check those issues

Btw if you add Mikachu could you add some pokes from next Gens just for the fun after main story is over?
For example add Giratina, Arceus, Kyu, Reshiram and other legendaries in a event or some story that teleports the player to another region where in a small hidden area you can fight those pokes xD
Or portals to enter another dimension to catch giratina or dialga and palkia or some thing like that
I think im asking for a lot :D

And "some parts of kanto" is an unclear explanation of how far can I go.

Yes this has to be the most accurate remake on the whole internet

Only Parts of Kanto are the Poke League and victory road

Beta 3 will probably have all Kanto or most of it
And after Kanto is completed there will be a 3rd map of Sevii Islands with extra post GSC events such as legendary pokes and 3rd gen pokes and unique events

Btw this hack got a Bug Catching contest, apricorns, headbutt trees and other unique features and its very stable and professional looking :)

Even a custom intro is coming in future update xD

Actually, Shiny Gold is surpassed by both Crystal hacks on this board. Not to be mean or anything, it just is. Also since they're both planned to be finished... well yeah. ShinyGold X is still fun though. :P

It's actually your choice. CrystalDust personally I am bias to because it provides a MUCH more faithful rendition of Crystal than LC. LC isn't bad at all, but the idea behind that is pretty much a demake of HGSS with plot that you'll either love or hate (and I... don't like the new plots thrown in. Not my cup of tea.).

So it's pretty much your preference. I'd play both, they're both well put together items that are among the best here on PC.

There's also a Crystal: Emu Edition by Locksmitharmy running around Romhacking.net that's pretty much exactly Crystal with everything catchable. More decisions, yay!

Only Johto is available which makes this hack a bit small but just look at this Johto
So many cool small or big scripts that make this hack unique and it stays close to the original
And updates only even if they are small add more cool things that bring this hack closer to perfection
And its base is Emerald do i need to say more? xD

Lots of hacks look better than CrystalDust but idk the scripting is just poor and unprofessional looking
No offence just telling my opinion

Edit:

And lol idk about ShinyGold i wasnt into hacks back then i tried to play on GameBoid but the hack crashed every time i pressed Start so i deleted it :D
Maybe if Zel would update this hack it could be better than both cd and liquid crystal :D

Unless if it's extremely minor and specifically just for playing the game without constraints like Crystal: Emu Edition

It's been a while, hasn't it? Blame my desire to not post until the current update is ready.
But... here it is!
The new player's house and prof elm's lab look fantastic!

And that revamped crystal opening is stunning, I like the colors used in it, and that seismic toss effect on suicune and the unowns works perfect. :)

Some problems I've found during my play of the newest beta:
When i turn on the GB Player, there's no nostalgic sounds (mute background), when i go back to the original fr/lg sounds, the sounds do come back though.

edit:

also i'd like to know if this can be changed:
http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/blue_orangepatrick2006/pokedex_listing_zps79e56a44.png
I think the texts went past the margin (to be much near the orange borderlines of the dex entry), can this be adjusted so that they are centered only on the white space? :)

note that there are quite a lot of pokemon that have this, onix, and bellsprout to name a few, i haven't obtained much in my dex to distinguish each and every pokemon.
Thanks for the comments!
I've never had that issue with the GB Player myself. And the Pokédex is still very much WIP.
Whoa nice that new intro looks great!

@patrick_20052005

I believe that Diego said he will fix the text bug in Pokedex some time later
Thanks for the post!
I knew this would come after shiny_quagsire released his stuff. Good work S_Q!
Yeah, he rocks! I love the new intro!
True but you can add those in this hack right?? Maybe some of them can be replaced with the unwanted ones
They're still programmed in, I just haven't given them any locations in the ROM yet.
I was wondering, even though this is supposed to be a "99%" accurate remake of Pokemon Crystal, are you going to input some aesthetic changes like the BW2 Repel System By Darthatron or mugshots with every battle or even Pokemon following you? But I love this hack, and I hope by the next beta I can still use my old save file.
I'm not planning on adding anything in like that, sorry.
And for Beta 3, you most likely will not be able to keep your old save.
GOODJOB! this honestly is one of the best roms i have ever played. i thank you so much for putting youre time into this but a few questions.....

1. where is wooper and mareep? it says belove dark cave but i searched for about a hour and no luck:/ i also looked where they usually are but still no luck

2. i thought dratini could b bought in the game corner?
1. Union Cave for Wooper, and Mareep isn't available in CD yet.
2. No, that's in Gold and Silver, not Crystal.
It looks like I have another Crystal remake to play! It looks great from what I'm seeing so far. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the praise!
Sorry idk if im missing something but whenever i beat the elite four ive got no call from elm and when i call him or visit him he keeps talking about the egg and to tell him when it hatched....(it hatched awhile back and i visited him with togepi in the 1st slot yet he still asks about the EGG) please help me anyone
This bug has finally been fixed in today's beta, but if you've already gotten the Togepi egg, you're kind of out of luck. If you really REALLY want that Everstone, you'll need to restart the game.
Just registered to say that I am having a lot of fun playing CrystalDust :) even if not being able to catch Ledyba or Hoothoot makes me miss my favourite pokes ;)

-Congratulations on actually using a custom sprite for the mother. I'm tired of seeing G/S/C remakes that uses the FR/LG mom, even though in the original G/S/C, Red's mom and Gold's mom had different sprites. But anyways, good job :) Thanks!

-Asking for daylight savings time is kinda stupid, and it's confusing to say yes or no. Why not just let us reset the time whenever we want? I know that you're trying to be as accurate to the original Crystal as possible, but asking for daylight savings time is just plain obsolete in today's age, where we can change the time of our smart phones whenever we want. Also this would allow flashcart users like me to play time-based events, such as the Bug Catching Contest. I ask for DST for those few users that have an RTC-enabled flash cart. I always want maximum compatibility for all users.

-I hate the New Bark Town music you're using. I've heard it in so many G/S/C remakes. They're terrible remixes that hardly take advantage of the Sappy engine's capabilities. Although I saw that you mentioned earlier that it's being changed, so that's good. Yeah, I hate most of the clonex25 music in the hack too. That's what I have tonti for now!

-Elm's Lab remix is just plain terrible Yep.

-you should probably change the Emerald Match Call jingle to a remix of the PokeGear phone number jingle On tonti's To Do list.

-Loving the PokeGear graphic! Thank blase005 for that!

-G/S/C had different trees for Kanto and Johto, but you're just using the FR/LG tree, just like every other G/S/C remake :/ But you've acknowledged that in the past, so it's good to know that it will get changed by the final. In regards to the trees you sent me, I'm holding off on inserting them because they weren't quite to my liking.

-Congratulations on actually having a regional dex instead of giving us the National Dex, that's the first I've seen in a G/S/C remake. Good job :) Thanks!

-Can't stand the regular battle music either. I hear it too much, and it doesn't sound very FR/LG-ish, all I hear is that stupid electric guitar instrument. Yeah, something else tonti needs to get on.

-Should the PokeManiac really be using the male Cooltrainer OW sprite? Knowing you, it was probably intentional, but they have no resemblance to each other whatsoever. I have no OW spriter, so I make do with what I have.

-In the original G/S/C, PokeManiac Isaac (Goldenrod Tunnel) had a Lickitung that specifically knew the move Cut. I'm pretty sure it doesn't know Cut in your hack, might want to fix that for accuracy. Fixed. But I'm not entirely sure that his moveset is correct (did it ONLY have Cut, because that's all I saw it use).

-Goldenrod City music is great Thank tonti!

-The very beginning of the evolution music sounds wonky Ehh, I think it sounds okay.

-The Town Map poster graphic that's inside of many houses is exactly the same as FR/LG, which is wrong because the map depicts the shape of Kanto No GFX designer. All people I have on graphics don't do it as their main thing.

-In the original G/S/C, Psychic Greg (Route 37) had a Drowzee that specifically knew the moves Hypnosis and Dream Eater, hence his dialogue. In CrystalDust, he just has a regular Drowzee, so I would fix that just for accuracy. Same issue with this guy too. Were those two its ONLY moves?

-In the Burned Tower, would it really have been that hard to make the beasts actually jump around, instead of... "fly" around? It just looks really unprofessional. No GFX creator.

-You really shouldn't be using the FR/LG Channler sprite for the Medium Trainer class, because they are two separate, distinct Trainer classes Fixed, finally.

-I encountered a wild Tentacool by WALKING behind the lighthouse Fixed.

-unchanged 8-bit GBC tiles in the lighthouse... this is a joke, right? -_- Those 16-bit staircases look really out of place here. No GFX designer; I made do with what I had.

I'll play through up to the Elite Four whenever I have time. This hack is a great Crystal remake, the only problems I have with it are problems I had with the original G/S/C, so from a 100%-nostalgic-remake point-of-view, I have to say this hack is definitely one of the more-polished hacks that I've played. I love how it doesn't feel like I'm playing a noob hack, it feels like I'm actually playing a Pokémon game. I'll definitely be looking forward to the next release!
Responses in bold as always. Thanks for your post!
I guess, I have some sort of bug: after obtaining the badge in Goldenrod, I went to National Park and Sudowoodo tree, but when I tried to go back for squirtbottle, Rockets were everywhere. They block my path to the flower shop, and I can't get to the third floor of Radio Tower to obtain Basement Key and proceed with Rocket's quest (originally it must appear after 7th gym or something like that, after phone call, and no one should block my way to the 3rd floor in that case).
I have no clue. That's never happened to anyone else here.
I played again to check the graphics update, i like the new elms lab and Goldenrod looks even better now :)

2 bugs that i found with My Boy Emu 1.5.10:

* The guy who gives miracle seed is bugged he gives me infinity seeds IF I TALK to him when i face him from ABOVE

* After Togepi hatches if i call elm or visit him nothing happens he just saying to call him if the egg changes

Note that i was using speed up from the emulators menu so that could cause those if you have free time you could check those issues

Btw if you add Mikachu could you add some pokes from next Gens just for the fun after main story is over?
For example add Giratina, Arceus, Kyu, Reshiram and other legendaries in a event or some story that teleports the player to another region where in a small hidden area you can fight those pokes xD
Or portals to enter another dimension to catch giratina or dialga and palkia or some thing like that
I think im asking for a lot :D
Both glitches have been fixed.
And you'll see what I have planned much, much later...
I never asked this before does this hack supports linking, i tried to trade starters from crystaldust to another crystaldust but i got a connection error with my boy emulator by using local link (to connect 2 roms with the same device)

I contacted the devs of my boy and they told me this hack doesnt support link...

I tried with 2 emerald games and traded fine...
It should support linking just fine. Heck, I tried it with physical hardware and it worked great.
Wow thanks! It feels like I'm playing Heart Gold on my iPod 4 kind of :P. I don't have my laptop right now so this is a good replacement, good job!
Thank you!
thx u i like this very much
Thank you!
Which rom did you use to make this hack there is a trm release and another from coolrom they are both usa but different not all hacks work on the trm release
Just wondering and i always used trm for this hack but i noticed that i can patch the other rom too so i wonder if theres a difference
I'm using a clean ROM ripped straight off my cartridge. No save patches, nothing.
I have a major problem.I am at Ecruteak City,I battled my rival,and I fall down.Then after the legendary beast left,I talked to Eusine.Then,he got to the place where it was supposed to be a ladder.Then,I needed myself to go back up to...but there is no ladder .-. .I checked on Youtube,and there was a ladder...but on my game,it's nowhere.I can't play anymore this amazing hack :(((((
HELP PLEASE!
I haven't had this issue, sorry.
Thank you! I like it how they have to hold specific item and level up instead of being trade, haven't seen it in any other hack.
Thanks!
no physical/special split :(

this is not based of firered, so there is no patch for it
There IS a patch for it, but I'm not inserting it into my faithful Crystal remake, sorry.
This hack is great. How the heck did you manage to get the clock set up immediately after pressing new game? I also want to know how you managed to get it to warp you to your room immediately (removing the ugly truck scene). I'm guessing they're ASM hacks.
Yep. Very frustrating to make but also very rewarding once they were done.
Oh yeah i almost forgot about that anyways looking forward to this :)
Great!
This hack looks amazing, but I can't seem to get it to work. If I extract the rom from the zip file (which I tried as a last resort) I just get a white screen. If I try running the .zip file of it, it says it's an unsupported file type. I tried changing the save type to 128k as well. It didn't work. Personally, I've never played a rom hack before, so pardon me if I sound like a noob, lol.
Hey Diego i wonder if there will be a Valve Easter Egg in this hack xD
Maybe not THIS hack.
So how is it as far as gameshark codes? After I beat this I wanna be able to go through it the 2nd time with cheats.
It really depends on the cheat. Some work and some don't. I just recommend not using them at all.
Does the author even come here?
Yep.
I most certainly am. :D Love this hack!
Thanks!
Waiting for it to be done :3 havent ever played generation 2 :3
You should play it now! It won't be done for quite some time!

Now that that's out of the way (phew), it's time for what you've all been waiting patiently for.
(also, new [really old but I just found it again] update CSS!)
[css-div="width:95%;border-color: #444;border-style: solid;border-width:3px;background-color: #CCC;padding:0px 0px 10px 0px;font-size: small;color: #555;text-shadow: #AAA 0px 0px 2px;"]Intro and Bag Update - 10/14/2013
http://o15.com/w/images/e/e0/CrystalDust_presents.pnghttp://o15.com/w/images/0/02/CrystalDust_introunown.pnghttp://o15.com/w/images/3/30/CrystalDust_introsuicune.png
This has been a long time in the making, mainly because of the bag. The intro actually took shorter to make than the bag. Can you believe it?

Anyways, new features in this patch include:


A whole slew of bugfixes!
A COMPLETELY NEW INTRO, made by shiny quagsire!
The bag interface completely ported over from FireRed!
A new Youngster encounter theme from tonti!
A new sprite for the Medium!
And more? I think so, maybe.

Download it, as per usual, from the link in the first post!

Here's a video for people who want to watch the intro for themselves:

The radio function in the PokeGear isn't working for some reason. It says "The RADIO isn't done yet..." Also, when I enter the underground tunnel in GOLDENROD, the guy that gives your Pokemon' haircuts isn't there.

Well, the radio obviously hasn't been completely implemented yet. It even tells you so when you select it.

I can't say for sure if that's the same reason the haircut guy isn't there, but it seems fairly likely.

Hey Diego, real fan of your hacks here! I thought up something neat for CrystalDust. You should put Mikachu as a hidden event in your CrystalDust! (Like Gary/Shining Opal playable character to give/trade to you) or under the truck with Strength.

No, please no Fakemons. Would be cool to actualy get a secret event for the GS Ball or something. Make it really secretive, and hide it really good. No one must know! It should be so secretive, it will basically not even be there :D Trololololol

I really don't know about that. I don't want to put Mikachu into CrystalDust because it would feel less official.
