Don't know if this is a legit bump, but I'll go for it anyways:
Thanks to Jambo51 we have the fix to the whole "Trainer doesn't face opponent" issue.
It's in this thread.
Now if only we could get a true Battle Tower System like the one from RSE [not the watered down version that Fire Red gave us]. Also I'm interested in the item fanfare as using giveitem2 [which would allow one to use their own fanfare] does't seem to work.
