Zel, may I ask, do you have a hacker working on ShinyGold who goes by the name of Adam, Skyler Blood, Haxormist, Zephyr Hellkaiser, or and combination of those? (or has worked at any time on it)

I would really appreciate and answer.

It should. I see no reason why it wouldn't. Keep in mind, though, that any pokemon achieved on this game are technically unlegitimate, and should not be used for official competitions. I'm guessing you probably don't care about that, but it's always good to make sure.

The thing I don't understand is how they get the cartridges.
It's not the battery, I know that for sure. GBA games use flash memory for storing memory, and even with games that use batteries, the functions are not tied with saving. For example, Pokemon R/S/E had a battery that controlled the clock. If that battery dies, you will recieve a message telling you as much, and time based events (such as battling other people in their bases, gathering berries, etc.) would be disabled, and time would be "stuck". As in, if the game was stuck at 2:38 PM, your game would believe it to be 2:38 PM for the rest of eternity, unless you replace the battery, which, I think, if done correctly (do NOT quote me on this!) would get the clock working again without affecting your saves.

Anyways, they must have a factory for it or something. I'm betting the materials are very cheap and flimsy, and the cartridges aren't official (for instance, saying "NINTONDO" on the back). They can also damage your GBA, so avoid at all costs. Say no to pirates!

Well the battery was actually only in RS and could be fixed by linking up with FRLG and repairing it that way. But it's just the way it's programmed.

Anyway now. I love the implementation of the new Mini-game. It's very unique. So does this mean that other progress will begin such as Music, etc.

Even then, you should always check to make sure. Some might not view it fair that you recieved a Ho-Oh/Legendary Gerbil/Totodile/Celebi/Whatever from a hack while they went to events/bought multitudes of other games/etc. To some, it's the same as using a Gameshark to enable appearance rates, which is also seen as cheating. I personally don't see it that way, but that's just me. Although, I'm sure if you explain it to the "host", it'll be fine. MOst everyone's heard of Shiny Gold by now. ^_^

Hey whats up zel, I just wanted to let you know that you're a genius for this and that this is the greatest Pokemon game ever (besides the original Gold). I say that and this isn't even a finished product. I've been aware you've been working on this game since you released beta 3 but I haven't really voiced my opinion on the game.

The only criticisms I have are small things and even those I can get past, but my biggest gripe with the game is that you used a god awful sprite for my favorite Pokemon: Feraligatr.

I know the sprite in fire Red looks much cooler than that one, so my suggestion is that you change the Feraligatr sprite back to the way it was or even to Emeralds Feraligatr sprite. Also I think that you should've added the Team Magma/Aqua grunts music from R/S/E as the Team Rocket grunts music instead of the Magma/Aqua admin music. Lastly you definitely need to change the wild Pokemon battle and trainer battle musics, they are the most boring tracks out of any songs on all the Pokemon games.

Other than that...keep up the good work and I hope you'll be done soon.

Hello everyone, skipping some questions that could be worth of replying in the Help Thread (you know, this thread), and questions about how to make the game save properly (which I and many of us have answered countless times), again a whole discussion about pirates (which has an easy answer: Never buy unofficial games!), and a comment that seemed to have caused some problems (and that I cant really answer, as we wont know as I only work on this project), avoiding all that, this is what I can reply to...

There are, at least I remember about something like that when I was still working with RPG Maker. Probably things have progressed, because when I tried a program for that, the result was quite bad.

Screenies wont get released till I start to fix bugs and beta test the B6. That'll give me more time to distract people

Should I? I dont know, not like I know much about how important is Bulbapedia :\

In fact, you may not have spotted me, but I was there (taking a break, as usual XD), I dont think I'll change those guys, after all, they did the game to begin with, they deserve their credit

I dont know. According to people who have done it, seems like it would.
One more for the next release, and then one or two more puzzles for the Trick House.

When was it that you chnage to the tiles you are currently using? I don't remember if in Beta 2(?) you had them or the orignial FR tiles.

Also, how often do you restart your game on SG? You keep adding thins in previous maps and you must have to keep starting again to get the full advantage out of each addity. Do you use the same team each time?

Oh yeah, we may have to get this thread cleaned uyp again... There's alot of random off topic posting/flaming/asking the same questions over and over again. Maybe you should create a neg rep systme where off topic posters get bad rep? It's really annoying whenever you check back to see if there are anymore screenies or updates by you and all you find is "My game won't save! Help me!!!".
I wonder... I think it was on Beta4. And I was a bit reluctant to change them, but a comment from Neos made me, at least try to see how the game would look with a few changes in the graphical area, and I ended up liking them. So, I switched to "let's try to make the graphics of this game a mix of every generation", dont know if that'll be nice to everyone, but that's how it's gonna be.

Usually, when I start to do a serious bug fixing or when I'm starting a beta testing with my testers. I dont really like to start a new game (as much as you do, yeah ), but, it's the only way to make sure everything is working correctly.
My team? I'm such a fool, I always want to make my own team (Carlos' team), so that makes playing multiple times a bit boring.

Unfortunately, this is the second thread, and the first one got closed for the same reasons. Starting another would get the same result so in the end, creating a new thread, getting some offtopicness, closing a thread, creating another sounds a bit pointless to me. It may happen eventually, but not anytime soon.
Besides, I think there are a lot of links on the web that would lead people to the less updated thread, and that would lead to more problems.
I'll keep trusting that mods will take care of this thread and the Rom Hacking area with their best effort

Too bad about Feraligatr, it's the first complain I hear, so unless I get more, there's nothing I can do. I thought it was a good work from Marnic, but as always, it's just a matter of opinions, it seems.

I liked the admin music more, it was more like "it makes me eager to battle", but dont worry too much about it. As the original Gold TR battle theme will be used there, anyway.
That goes also for the other musics you mention. Check out clonex25 and Magnius accounts on Youtube to get a better idea of how they could sound (criticism, if there's any, is always welcome, as that's useful to improve)

So, that's it. I'll get back to work on my maps for the next minigame after I lunch.

That's great about the music and I guess I can live with the Feraligatr. The music is an essential part of the game and its good you realize that. Thanks for gettin back so quick.

Bulbapedia is simply the wiki of Pokemon, and not only in looks. They're updating everything to Platinium standards (movesets, sprites, etc.) so it's a bit messy right now, but it's quality is parallel (i mean, considering the gynourmous Wikipedia with the "tiny" BPedia) to it's father's. I say be honored because what could a man wish more than to be an entry in an encyclopedia? XD

You don't need to evict Game Freak, you can just cram your room... oh wait, you're taking a break... meh, map an extra floor, easy stuff XD
Then when we talked to magni or clonex a song would play (pewter jigglypuff maybe? :D)

I also quite dislike the feraligatr sprite, but I dislike every Feraligatr sprite I have seen up to now. Guess I'm not a good reference. xD
Hmm... Let's see... Something to cause impact...

I have a glitch.

if you don't show elm the togepi before you beat the pokemon league, you can't get the master ball, which is too bad because this happened to me.

you can also bike in the lavender town name rater's house.
I believe children are the future.
As such, we can do whatever we want, and in the future, when it's time to clean up our mess, they will have to do it for us.
