Pokémon Dark Cry: The Legend of Giratina - Alpha 1.0.5
__________________________________________________________
Hi there =3! After 2 years of hacking, testing and a bit of downtime, it's now my honor to announce that alpha 1.0.5 now official has been released!
In this alpha version, You're ready to discover a new region called: Trion! So far, sadly enough, only the first peaceful village: Longhorn Village, the rough route 601, The shiny caves of Trion: Mt. Hydronic, the lovely city: Atlernion City and the magnificent Purity Forest are available. Furthermore, you'll be able to challenge the first gym-leader Gesina, play the first 6 unique side quests and reveal the secret of the almighty disorder POKéMON!
This alpha version ends after beating the first gym, and you, unfortunately, will not be able to continue your journey to route 602!

Bugs and Glitches
__________________________________________________________

BOLD: Still need to be resolved!
Line: Has been resolved!
Green: I never could resolve!

: Bag layout seems like to change color after selecting a item
: When entering Atlernion City it could appear the tiles on the news stand glitched!
: POKéDEX mini-map (location POKéMON capture!) has still the old "KANTO" line.
: The fishing side view from male and female are working! the front and back view hasn't been made yet!
: Capture a POKéMON in wild grass works perfect, but when you capture it and it appears in the "flash" POKéDEX the text (information) border remains black! This won't stay forever but it's a bug that we cannot fix for now, it has something to do with the battle background!
: When you use your town map it might occur that your location is different!
: When prof. Rowan call up the nidoran [F] in the intro. The POKéBALL ''floats'' left of him.
: Enter the Torn world might cause that the location art isn't correct (It shows a forest!)
: I would like to apologize about the many grammar errors you might will across! The translator has been booted out!
: Costum trainer battle background has not been added yet.
: Count POKéMON script at Purity Forest won't work with more or less then 2 POKéMON in your party! Be aware of this, it's a small script mistake!



Fun knowledge from Dark Cry: TLoG
__________________________________________________________
: Area's could have been changed by morning, day, afternoon, evening or night! (This makes exploring the Trion Region endless!)
: POKéMON Dark Cry: TLoG also contains alot of side quests and mini-games. These make this hack more entertained to play!
: Regular tiles like a window, radio's and Tree's might contain a behavior byte script! These make more things possible!
: Be sure you activate your RTC! Otherwise some events might won't work! Wonder how to activate your RTC? Options-->emulator-->Real Time Clock.



Don't do the following! (© protected!) (If you do I'll hunt you down with a blunt knife and cut your eye out, the header code hasn't changed for nothing!)
__________________________________________________________
: Don't use/rip the OW's that has been inserted in dark cry: TLoG!
: Don't use/rip the tileset/pallets that has been inserted in dark cry: TLoG!
: Don't use/rip scripts or even part of scripts that has been inserted in dark cry: TLoG!
: Don't decompile ASM routlines and use them for your own!
: Don't use the tilemaps/RAW's that has been inserted in dark cry: TLoG!



Please report any errors you come across, detailing what happened and possibly providing screenshots to help. Make sure you check this list to see if the error has already been reported, though.


Frequently Asked Questions
__________________________________________________________

Question: I can only find one (main) path in Purity forest. Is there a way I'm missing or another entrance?
Answer: This area has been based on time! A path in Purity Forest appears between 5pm and 6pm! This will get removed in the next alpha!

Question: The in-game time show 12:0 every time! Even when it's for example 15:40!
Answer: Be sure you activate your RTC! Otherwise some/many events won't work!

Question: I can't beat super nerd Gary's magnamite! Is there something I missed?
Answer: You might have chosen electric what makes this hack harder to beat! In the next alpha his POTION(s) will get removed!

Question: It seems like I'm stuck in the Torn World! I can't jump to another platform!
Answer: I'm aware of this, the only thing you supposed to do is press the "A" button!
