http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png~Introduction & Welcome~http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png

Hello there everyone, and welcome to the Official Pokémon: Liquid Crystal forum thread. I'm Linkandzelda, and maybe you heard of me before, maybe not. I started working on this alone around April 2007 with the intention for it to be a one person project, this meaning a solo hack. After the first major release it quickly became popular and the demands rose for higher quality and faster development, so I decided to appoint Synyster_Zeikku as Co-Owner to work mainly on Graphical aspects of the game. After 5 years of development as we enter 2013, we have a small team in place of dedicated ROM Hackers.

Lead Developer & Owner: Linkandzelda

Pokémon: Liquid Crystal is a ROM Hack developed for the GameBoy Advanced system using FireRed V1.0 as the base ROM. It’s a complete remake of the Original Pokémon Crystal game from the GameBoy Color. The story is the same as the Original Crystal with a load of extra events and even a brand new region to explore; the Orange Islands.

While playing Pokémon: Liquid Crystal you will experience the original main story from Pokémon Crystal, with additional events placed in and around it. Expect to see new evil teams, rivals, and other twists throughout.

http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png~Received Awards~http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png

Over the course of Pokémon: Liquid Crystal's Development, it's received a few Awards from different communities where it used to be maintained.

~Annual Hack Award~
The Annual Hack Award is an Award given to a hack which has been chosen to be the best of the current year out of all actively maintained hacks on the community. This Award was given to Pokémon: Liquid Crystal at the time when Beta 1.1 was first released on Pkmn Hackers Online, a popular ROM Hacking forum now known as ROM Hackers Online and actively maintained by me.

http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa92/badman10_2007/d2d2.png

~Hack of the Month~
The Hack of the Month is a competition which goes on at the Pokécommunity forums. A group of people will vote the best hacks from the month, and the public will vote for the best one. In April 2009, on the 25th Pokémon: Liquid Crystal 2.1 was released on the Forums there. It was given this award on the same month.

Hack of the Year is one of the biggest ROM Hacking competitions on the Pokécommunity Forums. They give various Awards to different hacks under a set amount of categories. In 2010, Pokémon: Liquid Crystal received first place for the Best Gameplay Award, along with some other Awards too.

http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png~Frequently Asked Questions~http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png

We get a lot of questions asked every day about Pokémon: Liquid Crystal, so we decided to answer some of the most asked questions here in this list. Please make sure to read this section before posting to ask a question.


Q: Where's the download patch?
A: Look down... The download links are maintained at the bottom of the post.

Q: Why can't I save in Pokemon: Liquid Crystal?
A: Well, in reality, you just can't save in FR. But to fix that just make sure to go to Options->Emulator->Save Type->Flash 128K in your Visual Boy emulator.

Q: Why does the Day & Night not work?
A: You need to use the emulator provided at the end of this post for full RTC support.

Q: I want to offer you guys some help.
A: If you think it will truly benefit Liquid Crystal, let us know and we can see.

Q: When will the next beta be released?
A: We work using a Live Beta, this means we make up to 100 "releases" per day adding and patching things. More info on this further down.

Q: Are all Pokémon gonna be in?
A: Correct. Since Hoenn poke live in Johto and Kanto (but very rare).

Q: How about fourth generation poke?
A: Nope. There should be enough poke to have enough fun.

A: Day & Night and Headbutt trees are in, Pokégear planned for the future.

Q: And the Sliding panels?
A: Yes.

Q: What happened to the legendary dogs?
A: It's just like crystal, and the same event's from that work in LC (Liquid Crystal).

Q: How do the Trading-evolution pokes evolve?
A: Every trade-evolution Pokémon has a new method of evolution.

Q: When will the Bug Catching Contest work?
A: It's on the list of things to add soon.

Q: What will you do after finishing LC?
A: I have a few other hacks planned after LC, we'll see if I get round to finishing them.

Q: When will the final be out and released?
A: This is something we can't say, as you never know what comes up next to halt development. It will be finished when it get's finished.


http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png~Bugs & Glitches~http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png

We make a huge effort to document and fix all reported bugs at some point during development. We can't do that if people don't report them, so here is how to correctly report a bug:

Use the form below as an example:

Build Number: 3.3.00100
Bug/Glitch Description: I can't fly when using Fly from the Pokémon menu, the same thing happens when using Surf and other field moves.

The current build can be found on the Introduction Text when you begin a new game, on the first page at the bottom. It's important that we get as much information as possible in as easy to read format as possible so we can fix it and release as soon as possible. Here's how not to report a bug:

hi am playing pkmn liquid crystala nd my starer ail not evovle what do i do i realy want t play more plz help me!

http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png~How We Release Updates: The Live Beta Explained~http://romhackersonline.com/lc/scon.png

The Live Beta system is a system where we make constant releases and patches by incrementing a build number and uploading the new IPS. We then keep adding to this IPS and people can download the new one instantly. Here's how it works in a nutshell.


We work on a new feature or fix a bug in Liquid Crystal.
We then change the build number on the Game Introduction Text.
We then record what we changed/fixed in the ROM.
We then create and upload a new IPS release for download.
You can then download it within seconds of us fixing it.


If you have any questions about the Live Beta, then feel free to ask, or if you don't understand how the Live Beta works, then read this post (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=7007861&postcount=1605) for a more detailed explanation. The key thing to remember is, check the Build Number and the Diary below, as well as remember the download link and file name never changes.

~The Liquid Crystal Development Diary~
Whenever we make a notable fix we let you know right away. A member of the team will post a message informing people of the change over on the Pokémon Liquid Crystal Project Page (http://www.romhackersonline.com/social/index.php/?do=/pokemonliquidcrystal/) on ROM Hackers Online Social. If you want to get constant updates on what's going on, you will find all the latest updates on that page.

~Build History~
With every build increment we make we write down the date and time, the old Build Number and the new Build Number, along with a short description of what the fix/change was. Here's what a single entry looks like:

03/01/2013 19:19:20: Build changed from 3.3.00089 to 3.3.00090. Fixed various small errors.

The current build can be found on the Introduction Text when you begin a new game, on the first page at the bottom.

http://cl.ly/image/2V2C0x341V0T/Pokemon%20-%20Liquid%20Crystal.png

We have a full list of these accessible from the page linked above, as well as right here (http://romhackersonline.com/livebeta/lc/BuildHistory.txt). It's a good idea to bookmark this link so you can check it to see when something changed and if you need to re-download it.

I introduce the @PkmnLCUpdates (https://twitter.com/PkmnLCUpdates) Twitter account. From now on when I update the build, the changes will be tweeted to this account. Simply follow this and you'll be notified of new builds instantly. Please note however that this is not a Pokémon Liquid Crystal Twitter account for everything, it's only for build update notifications and nothing else, so it will not respond to any messages and/or followers.

Also, if you get into my IRC on the #romhacking or #liquidcrystal channels, you can type ".lcbuild" and you will be given the latest build change automatically. Just a quick shortcut, you can get in via the Official Liquid Crystal site or RHO.

~Required Emulator For Proper Playing~
Due to new hacks performed on the latest version of Liquid Crystal, the emulator required to play the hack is Visual Boy Advance 1.8.0 Beta 3. Other emulators such as Gpsp and Gameboid are currently supported, and I'm working on adding full support for Flash Carts. I prepared a pack which includes ticked options for playing the latest version of Pokémon: Liquid Crystal.

While this isn't my favorite remake of GSC I do enjoy playing it. Coincidentally in HG/SS when you rematch gym leaders they have six Pokemon and the Elite Four. :O By the way will the game be harder than Shiny Gold X or Spirit Gold? (Drayano60's new ROM Hack, a sequel to Fire Red Omega.)

In my opinion, easily one the best hacks to ever grace the PokeCommunity.
I knew this hack wasn't finished; there was alot of things in Beta 2.1 that made me go "WTF?" at times, but I stuck through it. In fact, this was the first hack I've actually finished, even before ShinyGold.
Like the others have said, cannot wait for 3.1 to be ready, and still can't believe this hack is back.(How long since 2.1 came out anyway?)

Hehe yea 2.1 had a few things bad. It was released around april 29th 2009 if i remember correctly...

The rules still apply. And nah i wont release ti as that version is too old and outdated, plus its not ready for a release which is why i didnt publicly release it.

The final battle? im not gonna reveal that but maybe you can work it out from the events of beta 2.1 and how they end...

can i also be beta tester

Sorry but, the list of beta testers is on the front page and the positions are full.

Tbh its not the highest priority. I would much rather spend time working on the beta when i already have a full thread which serves its purpose.

It's been almost two years since I played you game link and it's awesome to see you're back.

I know you are not trying to be Zel, but I enjoy your rivalry. Once he appeared you showed up with Liquid Crystal, too!

Best of luck to you my friend and I hope you do remember what you said in your previous thread. "You are determined to finish this hack"
Let's see then if you can take it to the very end, especially since your plot is very advanced compared to other hacks. (sorry guys, I've lost interest in rom hacks, so I may be unfair with some new rom hacks which actually might be even better than the old ones)

Considering glitches, I remember two freezing points, both of them being pointed out above. Although none happened to me, back at the days of glory I used to read that people's gameplay was crashed either with that Kadabra in the victory road or in Goldenrod City (sorry for spelling mistakes) during team rocket beating event.

Looking forward to see your progress!
Let your graphics man Zeikku to retake the job. I bet he will still amaze all of us.
Best of luck Link, now that the remake duo is back!

Well yes i fixed it twice as i lost the first fixed rom :(. I tested the 3 battles i was aware of which were Price's rematch and silvers kadabra and also Brendan's krumpurt. The battles didn't freeze multiple times so i hope thats not luck :P

And other thing, the champion music (Like Red & Lance) Why do you not use the same music from HG/SS, or similary? HG/SS are smaller than your hack, but i think, you can use some sprites or music to create "the atmosphere" of one remake.

There is not really a special league in LC just battles between the 4 leaders and then the Orange Champion. Maybe there will be some tough puzzles or something to make it different :)

A release date? Well i cant say anything and will not as i never stick too them. Plus it puts pressure on me. But i can say this: I'm already tested and am up to ecruteak city. I have quite a few extras to still add in to the game but nothing major like new story stuff. So perhaps you can work out when the release would be from that. I can safely say it will be before Easter unless something major happens like a seagul attack!!!

Well thanks for the offer but i need LC to have a different feel. I'm aiming for a nostalgia based new feeling which isn't like HG/SS. LC needs a unique atmosphere if you get me.

I havent planned on remaking those sprites for this beta even though they arnt exactly awesome I know.

i have made a request for a savegame for a other pokemon hack


please check that before someone delete this


its in the savegame exchange

Umm... I'm sorry but what has this got to do with the hack?

Hey this hack is back! It was one of my favorite hacks many moons ago (why didn't you come back and finish this sooner >.<).

Just a suggestion -- do you think there's any possibility of adding moves like Nintendo did when they remade G/S/C?

For example --
Charizard can't learn Thunderpunch and Solarbeam (both of which exist in Gen III) in Gen III, but it can in Gen IV.
So maybe you could add in stuff like that for various pokemon for various TMs. I don't know, just an idea to make each pokemon more variable.

Also, try to make the Orange Islands map look similar to the official one. It really annoyed me in Sergio's Naranja that his Orange Archipelago map was merely a broken Hoenn map.

Also, minor detail (from what I've seen on a screenshot) - why isn't Vermillion Harbor a building?

In the next beta there is linking capabilities in the Pokécom Centers only which are in Goldenrod City and the Orange Islands. That totodile bug with beta 2.1 was fixed a while back. Thanks for mentioning it though ;)

Uh, something like that without adding all the new moves Gen IV and V added. Think that's doable?

It's possible. If someone can get me a full list of changes comparing the differences rather than a full list of what they are then i can do it.

Im not removing all the weather only the annoying ones like sandstorms. Theres an updated weather system which reflects the current season your in in real life like summer, winter etc although that currently only works for UK seasons. It's possible that in time I add weather patterns for other regions too. I will miss sandstorms so might add them in like 1 in 100 chance you get them.

With vermillion and other maps ive changed it so there isnt an underhouse for the harbor, same with olivine city.

The orange islands maps will be nothing like what they are in the anime. Infact I'll be mapping each one from scratch and from my head. The town names are completely different unless i add a major event from the anime which is possible. From whats in the beta 2.1 i added the Gs ball event. Its important that people know that my orange islands wont follow closely the story of the anime, infact not at all. The only ones are events i pick out like the crystal onix, the snorlax and stuff like that. Also the island names will be used from the anime like valencia island and sunburst island but again, not the town names.

I hope people arnt expecting to play through the orange islands exaclty how they were in the anime because it wont happen like that. The plot for there is 90% custom and totally different.

If you were fighting one of the Team Static grunts in Silph Co, I think towards the top of the tower, they had a Quagisre that if it used Amnesia, your game could freeze.

Ah that. That was also caused by the battle glitch which caused silvers kadabra to freeze. So its fixed too.

It's great to hear that you guys are back to making this the best you can.
I was upset when I heard it was cancelled and the then-called final beta was only being
released to a limited amount of people, to either continue themselves with your advice or
to just play to its limit...

But now that this is being continued by the original creators, I must say, I am extremely excited!

I did play it to my heart's content after I applied and you sent it on.
But now you're back.
Sincere good luck guys! Make this the best you can!

Good to see this back, LaZ. I've already played some of it, since I was accepted for the continuation, but it'll be interesting to see what you have planned for this. The Orange Islands is something that definitely caught my interest. Good luck, and I hope to see this project completed soon :)

Happy to know that one of my favorite hack is back in Business.
I Love Jhoto more than any other regions.
Hope New beta will be here soon and we can Play it again.
BTW, Is there will be any change of tiles or 4th or 5th generation Pokemon in the next version?

Q: How about fourth generation poke?
A: Nope. There should be enough poke to have enough fun.

This hack is absolutely amazing. Great job. I found an issue though, when in the rocket warehouse in Mahogany, the trainer sent out a ditto, and when it transformed, it froze my game...

Also, I have a question, In the Q/A you said that the dogs will be like crystal, so are you saying that after I confront Suicune, Raikou and Entei will be free and we can find Raikou and Entei in the wild?

How come instead of making guys like Scyther and Onix evolve at high levels you don't just make it so leveling them up once with a steel coat or whatever item the certain pokemon needs evolves them? Then it's more like the real games in that you can evolve it pretty much on immediate access to the item. For the original four- Alakazam, Golem, Gengar, and Machamp...there could simply be in-game trades. There is then no tearing apart the evolution system.


And on a side note...Red's sprite. Zeikku's one bad sprite. Doesn't really look anything like Red, and makes him look like a dweeb.

Also, to your above point about adding Gen IV and V moves...I think a much better investment would be to incorporate the physical/special split that was introduced in Gen IV. Would that even be possible?

How big can a hack can be? I'm supposing it isn't like HG/SS/G/S/C rubbish kanto instead it would be the full sized kanto from Red/Blue/Firered/Leafgreen. I played but never got that far yet. Reason why I haven't in cause I would have to restart for the orange islands because of the changes like the Goldenrod City beach :)

I'll make my return now. It was only a matter of time. :)
I never made those sprites, so your point is invalid. All crappy sprites will be improved, without a doubt.

First things first:
Do you guys like the Tileset I made so far? - There's more to create/add soon. Originally, we were going to strip the ROM of all default tiles, but in a way it'd lose the Pokémon feel. I'd hate this hack to look amazing, but have it's event-based element being awful.

An apology:
I've been out of action for a while now, so I'm not going to lie - I've lost a lot of interest in ROM hacking due to me becoming a Journalist for The Dashhacks Network. I play games and get paid for it, so I have little time to hack ROMs. I've also got a lot more responsibilities now, including a girlfriend, University and enjoying the last year of being a teenager (I'm 19 now).

Linkandzelda asked me to do some sprites last week which I haven't forgotten, but I recently got hit with a temporary ban regarding my PlayStation account due to producing hacks for the PlayStation 3. I've spent the last few days getting rid of the traces of these hacks and beating the games I illegitimately downloaded. I now have my main account with 20 Platinum Trophies back and a lot of free time.

So to Linkandzelda, I'll get the sprites done. This will probably be my last hack with you, but I will help you to achieve the dream we both once had about this. We have other plans, but time will tell.

I'm not going to lie, I can still sprite like a beast. Check it out: My Artwork since I've been away. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/zeikku/)

On a side note:
Linkandzelda recently ended up in hospital. He tried to pick a fight with the Seagulls that once attacked him in his room. As a result, I'm taking over - I am Co-Owner after all? :D

Theres new tiles in beta 3.1 compared to 2.1 and probably a few extras which people haven't seen yet. As for 4th and 5th gen, nope...

This hack is absolutely amazing. Great job. I found an issue though, when in the rocket warehouse in Mahogany, the trainer sent out a ditto, and when it transformed, it froze my game...

Also, I have a question, In the Q/A you said that the dogs will be like crystal, so are you saying that after I confront Suicune, Raikou and Entei will be free and we can find Raikou and Entei in the wild?

We the dogs work slightly different due to on of my mandatory events regarding suicune. On the original you had to find sucune on route 36, route 42 and in cianwood city before you could battle him in the tin tower (i think) so with LC the cianwood event is there with the battle with eusine, but the others are not. Once you battle him the two other dogs are released in the wild, but untrackable by the pokedex.

hi, what about following you starter? any plans with it?:)

Nope no plans, there probably wont be.

The split i will add yes, but not too sure on the trades. I've changed most of them since beta 2.1 and the in game trades already exist for the for real trades of Crystal. Not sure about adding extras as it makes it easier for people. I would prefer they discovered how to do it.

hey guys.i was playing the game and was in silph co.the game messed up and i had not saved for a while so i just saved there.i tried to open the game again but it doesnt open and shows a black screen but i can hear sound in background and also go to the menu.can anyone help me?i really do not want start all over again.appreciated.

Yes theres some odd bug there which im not sure why it occurs.. Theres a long fix which involves swapping the map and all sorts.

Just took another glance at the new screens <3

Hehe theres running up and down it thats fun for sure... but what about surfing up and down?

UPDATE:
I've been rather busy with college and assignments of the past few weeks, but i started half term for a week yesterday. I have some other projects for this term but im sure that LC testing will be done too. So far i'm up to Mahogany town with everything before already tested. I'll aim to get johto fully tested by the end of this week, but of course more will probably be done. Up until now ive probably fixed over 100 bugs since the release of the beta 3 preview!!!

Also thanks to Jambo51 for adding in a ton of ASM hacks to make for an enhanced GSC experience in LC.

Neither are a copy of each other. Shiny Gold came first, true, but it is a Gold remake, whereas this is a Crystal remake. In fact, it can be argued that Gamefreak copied both xD

Anyway, good to hear you have more free time now. Hopefully this hack can have its third beta released within the next few months :)

Good to see you back, Zeikku!
I must say that job of yours in that webpage fits quite well with your motivation judging by the material you give there.

I still remember the day of beta 2.0 release and the seagulls' attack by the way. After that, it was that unexpected bug which fortunately was fixed by Pokemon Prism creater (Coolboyman isn't it?)
Personally, after so much effort it was a shame to abandon it and leave it behind. Fair enough, everything has a beginning and an end, but Liquid Crystal is not finished yet!

I know that "you are not trying to be Zel", Link, but once more it seems that Zel initiated the project. So, keep your friendly rivalry on and good luck to both of you!

What Pokemon are you trying to evolve? This was a feature in Fire Red and Leaf Green to prevent you from having any Pokemon other than the first 151. Although I figured that it was fixed in this hack...

It seems really nice, but the weather is a bit annoying. And the colors are too dark (for me). My suggestion is that you could change Crystal (the girl)' and Silver (rival)'s sprite. Adding 4th generation pokémon would be wonderful (i hate 3rd generation pokés). But keep going, you will make an excelent hackrom!

Excellent hack guys, I love how you remade the Johto region. Anyway I found a glitch regarding the NEW ISLAND mission part.

After getting the CLEAR BELL and touching the pillar to be returned to the Burned Tower, using an escape rope can teleport you back to the cave entrance where you will meet Ho-oh in New Island.It's nothing big but I had to tell someone about it. By the way, can someone explain about the Ouka region, Team Static, Axel and the other guy? This is the first rom hack I've played so I have no idea about all of them. So keep up the good work guys, looking forward to version 3.1 Cheers!

Edit:

By the way, can you improve the look of the magnet train? Because it doesn't look like a train at all and I kinda like the GSC magnet train better. Thanks in advance!

Hm, well i just joined the forums and I am still settling in. I am very interested in this hack, i was hoping to see lugia as a legendary event in the orange islands part of the game(like the movie). Also, if you possibly plan on adding more legendaries(or building upon ingame ones), do like a item event type thing that you can earn ingame. I think it would make the hunt for legendaries more unique and creative.

No... And Double No.

No Fakemon will be appearing in Pokemon Liquid Crystal as it is strictly just a Crystal Remake with some extras thrown in such as the Orange Islands and some Legendaries that everyone loves.

Also, asking for release dates is strictly against the rules of both the forum and this thread.

March 13th, 2011, 08:19 AM
Actually I believe an X version is possible, I've played Pokemon Spirit Gold by Drayano60 and I believe Kanto was as high as the 60's, so if you were to make a hard version the Orange Islands could be in the 70's or 80's. Would you mind if I made a complete X version for the next beta? It would be hard, but that's the whole point of it. Red for example would have his Pokemon in the 80's if you wanted to know. :O

You can give it a go but to give you an idea of how hard beta 3.1 is, falkner has a level 13 and level 15 instead of 9 and 11. Some levels have gone up as much as 10 or more in certain areas. Below is a rough level range for the 3 regions:

Johto: 0 - 55
Kanto: 50 - 75
Orange Islands: 70 - 100

So you can see it might be tough to fit in an X version but if you can do it, i'll gladly accept it.

Also, you should update the world map a bit. Make it so that when you are in olivine city it shows the johto map... lol. There are a few places that show the wrong world map, but yeah. You also should edit the kanto map so that it connects to the johto map.

Unfortunately you can't go on and you HAVE TO restart your game. :(
What you should do now is delete your .SAV file, then change your save type by: VBA > Options > Emulator > Flash 128k.

Hi people!!! This is my first post and im doing it to help all those who have problems with their save type, especially in Pokemon and Golden Sun.
Many of you know that Pokemon cannot work with 64k flash saves, you have to use 128k in order for the save to work. But many still play in 64k and therefore use save states instead of battery saves (.sav files). Then you reach Gary or the Elite 4 or watever the name (I dont personnaly play pokemon, and never reached those final fights) and after you beat them, it says ur save is corrupted and will be erased... You're doom... Now u have to start from the beginning... Well not really. Here is wat to do to ''convert'' ur save state into a working battery save:
1) Keep ur save state.
2) Delete your battery file.
3) Start a new game.
4) Save in game a soon as u can (after choosing ur name and the prof.speech).
5) Close the rom and check if the battery save weights 128kB.
6) Open the game and load ur save (the working battery one, not the save state).
7) Load ur save state AND PUT THE SAVE TYPE BACK INTO 128K Flash!!! Indeed the save state loads also the emulator config.
8) Save in game.
Voila!!! It should work, it worked for me... My cousin had to put it in 128k, then 64k, then back in 128k, dunno why...
For Golden Sun its the exact opposite. Dont u dare to forget this vba-over.ini file. And youd better configure the vba-over file AFTER ur save have been repeared.
Good luck, if it doesnt work, answer this post, ill try my best.

And i read this solution on this forum once, but it was like 2years ago, and i cant find it back, so credits go to the guy who thought of that in the first place. I just hope my english is good enough to be understood, it should but i rarely speak english, so forgive any weird mistakes.

Will the volume of the hacked songs be fixed in the next beta?

Because the hacked songs' volume is much higher than the regular songs which doesn't sounds really good...

PS: still something really diffreant: The romheader seems to be damaged.
I had to paste in the original romheader at your hack to make the game work on the gpSP emulator...

With those levels, an X-version will be sort of useless. :3
Are you going to edit people's lineups though? I found the original Johto Gym leaders had horrible lineups with bad movesets.

Well i didnt plan on changing the lineups. Its part of GSC feeling ya know. Ive changed quite a few things already.

Yea i will auto level the music throughout all songs.

UPDATE:
Been really busy lately so haven't got much progress on LC. I'm still testing but i've got 8 badges now :)
Also heres what to expect in the next version.

* Updated maps - bigger, better, beautiful.
* New music - over 10 new tracks added
* New areas - things that were not in the original, surfing, caves etc
* Playable up to the end of Valencia Island - no more than valencia yet
* Bugs and Glitches fixed - tons, over 200 small things fixed so far!
* New Legendary locations - yep, the last ones were far too easy and boring
* Raised Pokemon levels - Harder, and more ranged out
* Partial Compatibility with non-vba emulators - Things like Android, iPhone and PSP emulators!
* And a ton more!

So there you go just a small update for now.

If I remember correctly then that egg is part of event so it won't hatch...

Hi !

What do you mean by compatibility ? Because I patched the game on a macintosh to play it on my androïd phone with GameBoid Emu and... everything works perfectly ! :surprised:

Hi, I was just curious about the following things...

1. Will beta 3.1 be increased from 16mb to 32mb? I ask because it might not work well with GBSP. (It's a saving issue I assume...) Or have u tested this already?
2. Some of the errors that occur on the gba emulator for PSP don't occur on VBA. Is this normal? (Like the Error:Bad Jump 0x810402)

Your game has come along better than I have imagined! U even put Hoenn in the game! Keep up the fantastic work L&Z! You have my support.

1. Beta 3.1 will be a 16MB ROM at this time. It could be extended in the future but I don't want to do it. It would be great to have such a large game on a 16MB rom.

2. That is normal for other non-vba emulators with beta 2.1. Beta 3.1 will have partial support for non-vba emulators like the one on PSP to make the game playable. There might still be some bugs for it but hopefully not. I've added a neat check for if the emulator is not VBA :)

p.s. Hoenn is not inserted and won't be, it's the Orange Islands that will.

I think he is referring to the ones you get from the people around the region. They wont evolve at all, even if you try to breed for a new one. Their cry sounds like Unown. Ive tried everything to get them to evolve, and nothing works. The only starter that evolves is the one I got from Elm at the start.

Hello, will LiquidCrystal run smoothly on gpsphone emulator on iphone? And also does this game include the FULL Kanto region?

Beta 2.1 includes full Kanto and Johto, as well as up to the first Orange Islands Gym Leader. As for playing it on GPSPhone, the current beta won't work. When you awaken the beasts (Rakou, Entei, Suicune) the game will crash and the event is mandatory to proceed since it is a Crystal remake. I already tried it. But it will work on Visual Boy Advance and GPSP (well at least till the 8th gym on GPSP, not sure about the rest cause I didn't get that far, should work perfectly fine on VBA)

EDIT: Silver's Kadabra at Victory Road still freezes on the PSP, but I went on the right side and it worked fine.
On the left side, it froze when he sent out Kadabra. Don't know if it was just luck but that's how I got past it. Just beat the Elite Four, didn't find any bugs in the E4 challenge, also beat Brendan (no bugs)

EDIT2: Got 3 badges in Kanto, but I found a way around the GPSPhone crash. I just uploaded my GPSP save file and downloaded it on my iPod and now I'm on Cycling Road in Kanto. =P I wish I thought of that earlier.

I've just finished the full beta on Androïd Emu Gameboïd, I got no bugs at all.

For the little story I never played GBC cristal . So a full remake with GBA
graphics was tempting!
To be honest i didn't read the full description of this hacked rom.

I got stuck in the team static headquarter (you know with all thoses teleporters).
So I decided to have a look at a soluce on the net... then I said to myself :
"wait... why aren't they talking about team static anywhere?"
Then I realised that the whole story regarding team static was totaly fan-made!

It's so amasing how it fits perfectly in the game!

Hi guys,

I've played the LC beta 2.1 and first of all
i'd like to say this is thé best POKéMON hack I've played!
(Trust me I've played a load of them!;))
I've found little bugs that really disrupted the game and made a detailed
report on them.
Also, I took the liberty of fixing most of the bugs in the version I own
and I replaced BYCICLE with POKéRIDE and worked that into the story.(You know, riding a PKMN?)
!!I DID THESE THINGS FOR MY OWN PLEASURE AND I HAVE NO INTENTION
AT ALL OF RELEASING THIS "edit" OF LINKANDZELDA's HACK!!!

Again, this hack is a masterpiece and none other then LINKANDZELDA and his TEAM should get credit for this.

BUT,

I have just one question..
You state that in this beta the player is able to travel until
the first gym of the ORANGE ISLANDS and I can see that's true
using ADVANCE MAPS.
So after completely beating the game and getting my TICKET stamped
by OAK, I went down to VERMILLION and tried to take the FERRY.
Now, when the sun shines in VERMILLION, I'm able to sail to OLIVINE
and vica versa when it's dark in OLIVINE but I wasn't able to go to
the ORANGE ARCHIPELAGO.
After many hours of reading LC walktroughs and viewing all the related youtube clips, I found out I had to make it rain in VERMILLION CITY!
Next problem came up.. how did I make it rain in VERMILLION?
Also searched online for the answer, watched dozens of clips made by people who WERE able to get there but no result!
I only get SUNSHINE, SNOWFLAKES AND BIT DARK as wheater types constantly..

Can anyone help me out here?
I'd love to finish 2.1 before 3.1 comes out so I can continue the story smoothly.

grtz,
Jeffrey

It been a while since I last checked this thread, but to my knowledge beta 3.1 will not include all of the orange islands, and I do think it will not be possible to be able to include another region because of space constraints.

@Johtoman Just fyi, the scientist doesn't give you the password. In fact, You don't even need to talk to him to complete the mission. The Woman rocket North of him is one of the rockets that will give u the password. There are a couple of glitches similar to this, such as battling certain team static members after beating the 8th gym will cause the game to freeze. What i did to get past this is open the game up in advanced map and press delete event on the script that caused this. It will then play fine. Don't do it too often as one event may activate another one, which could cause the game to become 'stuck' and not realize what to do next. Hope this helped!

Welcome Back Mate.From my past Exp. I think those thing need to change:All OW and Triner Sprite should be Change. (I will be easy cuz there are already HG/SS ).FR Tiles is not really good. So I think new tiles should be added mainly Burned tower, bell tower, Radio station, light house, tropical house and lab. Pokemart and pokecenter too.Pokemon sprit should be change to HGSS or B&W.Anyway, I thing above all Tiles should have major change.Others are ok but addig new is also good.Thats what I reall think.well, I am waitin for the new beta.

Maybe front sprites from HG/SS are better, but back sprites from all 4 gen. games are uglly and i think that you should not change backs...

Most Overworld's are fine, but a lot will change regardless. Trainer sprites will be changed. There are very little FireRed tiles in the game anyway o_O - So I probably will keep everything in the same style as the trees. All of the tiles you mentioned were already changed in the last beta, there isn't a real need to change them, unless you guys are actually bored of them.

I'll have a look at changing them all, providing there are tiles already made. I don't really fancy making big tilesets. Nevertheless, all sprites and OW's should change as for the building tiles, I'm not sure.

yeah...it will be great to change pokemon's sprites to HG/SS or B&W which IMO are much better than fire red sprites... :D

Problem with that is the resize for them isn't always perfect. So I may just fix the ones that look messed up, like Charizard.

Maybe front sprites from HG/SS are better, but back sprites from all 4 gen. games are uglly and i think that you should not change backs...

Alright. That seems bearable, I may try and see if I can get a 4th gen sprite patch off someone, if not then I'll manually insert everything again.

----

Another thing people have to consider, is that this is a FireRed ROM hack based on tiles, not textures. If I add too many B/W/HG/SS/D/P/P stuff, the ROM will end up looking seriously tacky. I'm trying to give this ROM a subtle yet dramatic change so that it's on-par with the newest games. Obviously this game isn't texture-based, so there's only so much I can do. Either way, I look forward to changing tom ROM up a little. I'll have something to show you guys by next week or the week after. May even work on a new palette. :)

Yeah but the ROM in the screenshots of this page hasn't been played. They already have different tiles to 2.1 o_O. Either way, I just made a new tree anyway. Also new grass, but the grass isn't finished yet.

Why not a new style other than D/P? HG/SS good enough and it will suite perfectly with this hack.

I enjoy this hack a lot, it's very good. I would make a few adjustments to the battle scripts though...some trainers outright spammed attacks like Sand Attack or Tail Whip, and the constant use of Super Potions gets annoying as well. Change those things and I think this hack will make my top 5 fav list.

Right, I'll say this one time and one time only. I speak for myself and not linkanzelda, but everytime an argument kicks off, I'll personally hold hack an update and won't show it. You guys are meant to be supporting us and the hack, fighting and arguing does not help. I've had enough with Pokémon hacking as it is and the only reason I still work on this with linkandzelda is because of the support we get, the popularity and scale of the hack. This is going to be the last hack I work on.

I'm not being aggressive, I'm just telling you guys how it is, be patient and all will be good. I doubt you want another glitchy beta right? No asking for beta's in future, no arguments. This needs to be an argument-free update thread.

By all means you guys can post your opinions, just don't create arguments.

We'll release beta 3.1 when we're good and ready. As for the tiles, they won't be changed this beta as you haven't even played the game which is featured from the screenshots. Tiles will be changed for Beta 4 but not for 3.1.

I'll have something to show in the next few days, but until then - Play nice. :)

Hey I just recently got back into the pokemon games when me and my friends decided to play pokemon on our music trip in the bus. It turns out there's a reason I played Ruby so much in the fourth grade. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for making this hack, I haven't downloaded it yet(waiting for 3.1), but it looks pretty good. Since I only played the GBA generation pokemon games I never really got a chance at the Johto pokemon, and yet Tyrannitar is still my favorite pokemon.

Something I wanted to ask/request though, is that if all the pokemon up through the Ruby/sapphire/emerald pokemon are gonna be in it? Even the legendarys and the starters? Also all the Johto starters. Because in Shiny Gold you can't get all the johto starters you just get the one. I think that the other two starters should be a prize for completing the rest of the pokedex or something. That would be cool, then every last pokemon would be catchable. Anyway good luck on finishing this thing!

Well guys I too am back :). I took a short break due to college and other stuff, but now i'm back working on LC again. I'm in the testing stage at the end of Johto so a lot of things have been fixed and improved for beta 3.1.

As for 3.1, it will go up to the end of the first island on the Orange Islands, so not much progress done since 2.1, 3.1 is more of an improved version of whats already in the hack, working more for the final release. I must say I was slacking a lot over the past 2 years with some lack of motivation here and there so i'm not best pleased about the progress and amount of work done on LC over the 2 years. I wanted to get a lot more done but its still a great update to look forward too :)

Heres a short plan of action for what needs to be done for the release:

Finish testing up to the end of the first island. Currently on route 46 heading towards the league.
Fix all the bugs which I find along the way.
Add in some changes to the hack, such as tweaks and some story changes.
Add in the extra graphics.
Do the final testing for the beta 3.1

Thats all of it in a nutshell. One of the things on that list, is a pseudo Pokégear. A Pokégear i plan on making which will provide the underlining functionality through the use of a script. This would then be changed and hopefully made into the real thing for the next beta, or the final release.

Another extra includes a revamped weather system. Some of you might of noticed for the 3.0 that i nummed the weather down making it less random and more consistent. Well now with the use of the Day/Night I will be making a more seasonable weather system which is based on the seasons in the UK. This means it will be more common to snow during the winter, more sunny in the summer etc. So, also means no sandstorms which i'm sure messed with peoples battle strategy a bit.

There will be more new music including the missing mixes such as legendary battles for the birds, the dogs and more. Other themes missing like the national park will be added, and infact already are in the new beta along with over 10 over new mixes, with more planned.

The other thing I would like to inform people of, is the new difficulty level in the game. I found the old Crystal to be too easy, so for 2.1 i raised most of the levels by 2-5 levels from the original. Well even that I found to be too hard so I've now raised them higher up to another 20 levels in places. For example on route 46 theres a Hiker which has a load of level 15 Pokémon, i raised them all to level 35 which is a 20 level increase over the rest. Now I should note that people who have had a taste of the new levels, have said its very hard. When i do the final testing, these levels might be lowered just a little depending on how the final test goes.

Regarding compatibility for other emulators, those key areas (releasing the dogs, opening stats page, the static battles, silver battle) theres no reason they would cause errors, making it much harder to actually fix them. The emulator I will be working closely with is gameboid for android phones which uses the gba_bios.bin. Working with that would most likely solve the problem with all other emulators that use gba_bios.bin as they all work from the same bios file.

I will also say regarding the planned events in the Orange Islands. Don't expect an anime remake of the same storyline. The teaser up to the first gym from 2.1 might of implied that it would be, but that event is just to start it off and to get the player to go to the Orange Islands. The rest of the Orange Islands, there will be a total of 5 in the hack, will contain some of the main events from the anime but the main plot will be fan made. Just to inform people of that once again.

The release date, most people want to hear right now is planned for.. I'll say again "planned" and, once more 'planned' for the summer holidays. Anything could happen since then but, to be truly honest not much is needed to be done on the hack for the beta 3.1 release.

So until then, keep patient, happy and no more arguments ;)

Welcome back. I like the idea of Pokégear. BTW, don't you think you increased the level a it much?
whatever, waiting for beta 3.1.
Good luck

In my opinion:
Charmander
Nidorino
Nidoking

And if it's possible graveler and golem backs...

Done - Expect them in Beta 3.1.

Well, the level go up higher throughout the game. This starts from after you get to route 30 to do the first trainer battle. From then falkner is around level 11 and level 14, then from then on about 5 levels raised. I felt that the end levels and like having jasmin at level 26 for olivine was too low. Claire is in the 40+ range with the league going to be 50s most likely. Then Kanto trainers will start at about 45+. The idea is for balance them out over the hack making them harder at the same time. Its rather an experiment though.

Regarding compatibility for other emulators, those key areas (releasing the dogs, opening stats page, the static battles, silver battle) theres no reason they would cause errors, making it much harder to actually fix them. The emulator I will be working closely with is gameboid for android phones which uses the gba_bios.bin. Working with that would most likely solve the problem with all other emulators that use gba_bios.bin as they all work from the same bios file.
Gameboid? Ewe, don't support the app developer by downloading his emulators - he steals work from other people without giving due credit, and does it for personal profit.


Regardless. It's nice that you're working for compatibility in Android emulators; however, I was playing the game in Tiger GBA, and the game froze as soon as I walked up to the legendary dogs. :\ I hadn't saved for at least three hours, too, so I lost a lot of work - however, I save-stated while the game was frozen. Obviously not expecting to recover from it... but it's a possibility.

Regardless, you're doing an awesome job, putting so much dedication into a hobby. We need more people like you and the developing team. keep up the good work; I'll be following progress closely. :P

Steals others work are you positive? Got proof? Because they are the best emulators on the market by far... I'm not supporting him either as i'm not paying just using the lite version, half support hehe.

I've never played this hack so I don't know if the Kanto wild Pokemon are still at their extremely low levels [as they were in Crystal]. But I was just wondering if you're going to bump them up at all?
