VERSION 3.2 AVAILABLE!
Confused by the numbering? Don't be! I chose that because I felt it to be right for my purposes regarding the hack. Plus it represents the -bit system that is the GBA (32-Bit).
Anyways, today's update doesn't really have new features. Instead, I chose to completely overhaul the element that I originally focused on with this hack: the music. Before, the 8-Bit songs in this hack sounded awfully close to the real deal. I haven't heard anything in the ways of complaints since addressing the few that I had when I first released it, so most of you might not even know what I'm talking about when I say that
the old tracks were a bit off
, even after my self-touted major upgrade awhile ago.
Anyways, no more being down on my old work. Recently, I made a few posts in the old GB Player thread in the Research & Development forum. Since doing so, I happened upon something that was a gold mine to me: a major correlation between the structure of songs in the original games and the structure of GBA tracks! With a lot of work, and a bit of frustration, I now present to you the fruits of my labor:
nearly perfect recreations of the 8-Bit tracks
. Listen closely for those wonderful beeps-and-boops of old times.
Oh, yeah: you can now finish your pre-4th Gen Eevee-lution collection! Yay
All of the 8-Bit songs are now based on the original code, resulting in tunes that are almost 100% accurate to their depictions in the old games.
The 8-Bit tracks now all use a unique voicebank, structured specially for making more 8-Bit songs with it.
Various sound cleanup and restoration of the original FireRed ROM's code where appropriate.
Catch 'em All
The most basic Real Time Clock features have been implemented, along with Jambo51's custom time-based evolution ASM codes for Eevee. Now you can get Espeon and Umbreon through standard means.
Bugfix: Raikou now appears where it is supposed to be after interacting with it in Altering Cave.
Enjoy the new version, guys!
