No, that's the way I've intended it to work.
Jin has a certain role in the development of the story, but that will be later in the game, and until then, he keeps "sending" you out like that.

It works the same way as originally (since there is really no need changing that to anything else).

Anyways,
Spoiler:
You don't even have to evolve your Eevee to Espeon since even if you evolve it to something else, you'll be able to get Espeon by some other means (along with all the other forms of Eevee).
Once you find the first Page in the game, you'll see what I mean.


By the way, I've gotten more stuff done lately, and soon, I should have all the in-game areas finished (even the ones related to all kinds of sidequests). Apart from that, there are some other things that have to be done before beta-testing the hack, and before I can release beta 4.0.
Also, I was planning to make beta 4.0 even "better" than it's going to be, but it's going to take some time, so I'll just release an "update" later on which really won't make the hack that much different (and doesn't involve any more gameplay than 4.0 does either).

Excellent, also when the new beta does come out will I need to patch a clean copy of silver or can I just patch over 3.1, also regardless of that will I be able to use my saves from 3.1 or will I have to start over?

You can't (or more like, should not) use the save file of beta 3.1 with beta 4.0.
There are so many differences between those two versions that there are certainly bugs there, probably even game breaking ones.

Beta 4 will come when it's ready. I'll be informing about the date when the time is right. Until then, I'll be working on it on my own pace.

Yet in fact, I think I can make it in June. But that's all I'm gonna say about it.

Thanks for the comments!
There was nothing extraordinary in any of them, and I was being lazy, so I didn't answer any of you in person in this time. Sorry about that...
Anyway, there is SOMETHING to be cheerful about!

I've re-written the main post in the means of getting ready for the next beta. Lots of stuff has been going on lately and looks like I won't have many things to do for the next beta anymore. So writing a ReadMe along with remaking the first post felt appropriate things to do.

There are lots of interesting, but small, unveilings in the main post so go and check it out. You'll like most of the things you see there, that I can guarantee!

You should start all over from the beginning. But you definitely won't regret doing so

Quote originally posted by czen29:

"Normal" is just the ordinary "SHIFT" battle mode that is automatically set. "Active" is a replacement of "SET" battle mode as a small asm hack that changes SET mode act like my mini-hack, "Active Battle System". You can find a video of it in youtube to check out what it is like if you want. Won't really be that "special" but there is a difference.

Quote originally posted by emilin_rose:

:\

Sorry, I really can't help. You see, there is nothing wrong with the script data that is executed when you talk to Prof. Joke. It sounds like the rom file you're using is somehow corrupted and can't execute a certain movement data that should be executed during the script.

There is not much to do in his lab though so if you can, just load from your save file and don't enter there at all. I'd like to know though, are you playing on an emulator in your PC or in Vizzed for instance? How about some other system, mobile, or something else?

Just finished Beta 3.1. Great all around, just got in to playing hacks and this one is great. Love the plot line, and it's a very interesting idea. Love the subplots too, especially the Magikarp battles.

One quick thing though, I noticed that when I beat the Brightbulb gym, the leader said he was giving me Leftovers and as far as I know, it never appeared in my pack. Not sure if I just lost it or did something wrong or if its a problem with the game. Just a heads up for Beta 4.

Really looking forward to it. Great Job.

Never mind, I found it, I was indeed just being dumb.

Again, great job with the hack. It's been a blast

Thanks Nick! Glad to hear you really liked it

And... here's another update!

I bet none of you has seen this much action going on in such a short amount of time in a pokemon game before. So take precious 14 seconds of your life and click the "Play" button in the center of this video screen. You won't regret it!



And that's not the full event of course

Something may happen when you beat him the second time in beta 4, but in beta 3 beating him again doesn't serve for any special purpose.

But what comes to beta 4.... IT'S PRETTY MUCH DONE!

I beta-tested the hack today and could only find a couple of small errors here and there which are fixed. In other words, the game is pretty much complete and should be totally error-free. If not, at least there shouldn't be any bigger bugs around (although there really shouldn't be any).

There are a few more things to be done which I can finish pretty quickly (< 30 minute job). Once I'm done with them, I could do another test play and release the next beta. One thing it would be lacking though is a new title screen so I may try to insert one that cabusao (creator of Emerald Gen II hack) made me earlier. But that would only be a temporary one so I might not bother with it. So Lugia may be seen flying around in title screen of beta 4 as well, even though it's not even included in the hack itself.

There we go!

I can't promise anything, since I might have to break the promise if I did, but it could appear at a totally random moment in the next week.

And also for everyone who plays the hack right now to know, you won't be beta 3.1 save or rom files anymore - Recycle Bin is a good place for putting those.
You should start over from the beginning anyhow, you'll miss a lot of things if you don't (and game would turn out glitchy too).

Thanks! I truly like how this hack has turned out as well. Wouldn't have imagined doing anything like I'm doing right now, especially not two years ago.

The hack is actually a bit easier than what beta 3.1 was. I haven't changed the wild/trainers' pokemon of the gameplay of beta 3, so you don't have to train more than you did with beta 3. However, now that battle simulators have been added to the hack, you don't have to "bush grind" either (making it take way less time to gain levels when needed).

Beside that, after reaching Milky Village or so, beta 3 was pretty easy too. And the hack will continue the way it ended in beta 3 - making it possible to go on an on without having to "prepare" for any upcoming boss fight.

Finishing some sidequests does require lot of additional grinding though. But that's just because I have added several sidequests in the hack that would be pointless to finish so early in the game if you were playing a complete version of the hack instead. So they're pretty much "add-ons" that shouldn't really be finished yet at that point of the game.

You know who just finished scripting everything for beta 4.

Expect for the things I had planned to do, I re-wrote all the scenes in which Roland makes an appearance (been making him a totally different person than what you see him as in beta 3) and made two new scenes for him while at it.

So, soon people, soon...

Hello again, here is something I was wondering about unrelated to beta 4. On 3.1,just north of highland town, I noticed that my itemfinder was detecting an item that had to be off of the route to the left (screenshot below). I also remembered in the Highland gym the leader tells you that cut can be used on BUSHES and trees, which I thought was interesting. But I tried to cut the bushes on the route and the game wouldn't let me. Is this an element of the game that isn't enabled yet? Just curious because the concept of cuts new trails by cutting bushes is very cool.

Thanks for the error report! I have a habit of sometimes leaving unused event data lying around somewhere in the area - warps, signposts, trigger events or such. What there happens to be is a certain signpost event that works like a hidden item and that's why, itemfinder could track it down. But that's fixed now.

Cutting bushes/grass it possible in original games already. The reason why Arnold tells you this is actually because of a certain event you can access by cutting bushes (in beta 4).
You simply go in front of a grass patch and select Cut from the menu. It should work. At least it does work in beta 4 since I've tested it just recently.
