They're not actually IN the hack. I said that it would take a long time for them to insert, meaning they aren't actually in yet. It would just take a really long time to insert them, and I don't even have their appropriate overworld sprites, so they would look strange.



Yeah, I know, right? The text now is so grand and beautiful...
oh that's fine. at least there's plans on adding them soon, appropriate overworlds, uhmm, would it be possible for some recolors on some of the old overworlds to match the new ones you will be using? since the transition from rby to gsc used the same overworlds for the trainers (unless of course i believe you wanted it to match entirely, it's better that way since it makes this remake all the more better than hgss). but i appreciate the replies and the updates so far. :)

...There's no plans on adding them soon, and I don't think I said anything about that. That being said, however, there's still the possibility of having the new ones in the future. But probably the far future.

Also, it's time for another update! *cue collective groan from fans*
Yeah, I know, too many updates recently. I think I should either call this the "Diego, stop making so many updates!" Update or... the Beginnings of New Music Update!

tonti is now working with me to bring the GBC music to (better) life with a fresh, new soundtrack, starting with Cherrygrove City for some odd reason. Also, Azalea Town and Violet City have had their pitches changed to sound more accurate to their GBC counterparts. In the future, the missing tracks, such as Eusine's theme, Clair's theme, and the two themes for the Bug-Catching Contest, will be added to the game. Afterwards, revamps of the Pokémon Center and Pokécom Center themes are planned, and after that... Who knows?

Just curious, what did you think of the new Cherrygrove theme that's in-game? I'd like to get other peoples's opinions on it besides myself and tonti's. I made a mistake on the name; it's called the Exhibit II. Its clock speed is 1 GHz and has 512 MB RAM. I doubt its ability to run Gameboid because I've seen it struggle with other, average intensity tasks.

Yeah, only because there's so much things that could be done to make CrystalDust even better and I keep getting distracted by them.

All right, then I have slightly higher hopes now. XD

That sounds like the rival name didn't load from the save file into memory. Are you using 64KB save files or 128KB save files?

Or it could be cheats. Don't use cheats with ROM hacks, unexpected things might happen.

The next beta will either have a partly finished Kanto or a completely finished Kanto, but neither will mean the game is complete.

First off, wanted to say that I absolutely love this hack as well as Shining Opal; you really put a lot of effort into both and I applaud you. Secondly, I want to know if I'm the only one having problems with Sprout Tower. Whenever a wild pokemon or trainer battle is triggered, the game freezes and I can't continue. I have not been able to make it past the second floor, so I don't know if the problem persists for the rest of the tower. I'm using My Boy! Free for Android. I'm hoping someone can find a fix for this; if not, I can always transfer my save to my computer and continue using VBA, because it seems no one else had raised this issue. Thanks in advance!

Ack, my bad. I managed to break the indoor battle tileset with one of my recent updates; today's update fixes that issue.

Also in today's update: more music from tonti (and the proper credits for him in the music section)! This time, it's Eusine's and Clair's themes. Even if this doesn't matter to you, you should still update as the bug reported by eragon_1121 is fixed in this version.

Works perfectly now, thanks! I also wanted to mention that when I battled Falkner, the background was a bunch of red, black, and white lines that looked really weird. However, I was able to finish the battle just fine, so it's nothing gamebreaking. Also, this was on the previous version and not the latest update, so I don't know if it's been fixed already.

By the way, the music is fantastic. Best of luck and keep up the great work!

Any chance that you'll ever fix the hardware saving issue? I understand that JPAN was the one that made the variable-RAM-repointing patch, and that he only re-released a non-glitched version for FireRed. But considering the ASM hacks you've made, I'm just wondering if you can look into it. It won't even save properly on the homebrew Wii emulator for GBA (VisualBoyAdvance Gx).

I would really like to play this hack, and there are very few hacks that I bother playing on hardware. Consider that as a compliment, because it means through just the screenshots I can see the amount of effort you've put in. Basically, if it looks crappy, I won't bother playing it, or I'll play it on an emulator at 1000% speed just for fun. But if it looks like a decent quality hack, I'm definitely putting it on my flashcart and playing through it thoroughly.

(Also would you like for me to sprite a Johto tree for you? I've brought up the point in the past that in G/S/C, Johto and Kanto had separate trees, but in your hack you're just using FR/LG trees, but you said you would change it if someone made a new tree, and of course you'll use the standard FR/LG tree for Kanto)

Argh, not again. This time I found out that I screwed up the gym leader battle palette. Today's patch fixes that as well as adds new Jasmine overworld sprites by Retribution.

I hope to fix it soon, but the issue wi that is the way that JPAN had to rewrite it. Basically, he looked at every save block to find out where the free space was... Obviously, this will be different seeing as it's Emerald and not FireRed. I think I'm going to try to tackle this issue soon, though.

Look out for more music in a new update coming soon!
