This hack looks amazing, but I can't seem to get it to work. If I extract the rom from the zip file (which I tried as a last resort) I just get a white screen. If I try running the .zip file of it, it says it's an unsupported file type. I tried changing the save type to 128k as well. It didn't work. Personally, I've never played a rom hack before, so pardon me if I sound like a noob, lol.

Get a emerald rom from the internet and use lunar ips to patch the CrystalDust.ips file to the emerald rom

I've tried roms from two sites but I get the same result. That result being that VBA says it's an unsupported file type.

Two ROMs are never enough in Emerald hacks. You should try more and more different ones.

They are enough because most sites host the same rom release xD
And the roms you used are different but they both work with this hack i tried both

Hey Diego i wonder if there will be a Valve Easter Egg in this hack xD

That's probably the problem. I was using the original VBA.

EDIT: So how is it as far as gameshark codes? After I beat this I wanna be able to go through it the 2nd time with cheats.

They don't seem to work. I guess with all the changes none of the values match. Oh well.

There's a patch for all versions. The reason why PSS isn't in this is because this hack is meant to be a faithful recreation of Crystal.

Honestly... I've never seen a hack as a great way to start playing anything.
Spoiler:
Unless if it's extremely minor and specifically just for playing the game without constraints like Crystal: Emu Edition

Quote:

It's not in zip file when downloading it from his site, and it's 1.9 MBs.

It's been a while, hasn't it? Blame my desire to not post until the current update is ready.
But... here it is!
Quote originally posted by patrick_20052005:
The new player's house and prof elm's lab look fantastic!

And that revamped crystal opening is stunning, I like the colors used in it, and that seismic toss effect on suicune and the unowns works perfect.

Some problems I've found during my play of the newest beta:
When i turn on the GB Player, there's no nostalgic sounds (mute background), when i go back to the original fr/lg sounds, the sounds do come back though.

edit:

also i'd like to know if this can be changed:

I think the texts went past the margin (to be much near the orange borderlines of the dex entry), can this be adjusted so that they are centered only on the white space?

note that there are quite a lot of pokemon that have this, onix, and bellsprout to name a few, i haven't obtained much in my dex to distinguish each and every pokemon.
Thanks for the comments!
I've never had that issue with the GB Player myself. And the Pokédex is still very much WIP.
Quote originally posted by ElitePokes:
Whoa nice that new intro looks great!

@patrick_20052005

I believe that Diego said he will fix the text bug in Pokedex some time later
Thanks for the post!
Quote originally posted by Жека:
I knew this would come after shiny_quagsire released his stuff. Good work S_Q!
Yeah, he rocks! I love the new intro!
Quote originally posted by alienhunterx:
True but you can add those in this hack right?? Maybe some of them can be replaced with the unwanted ones
They're still programmed in, I just haven't given them any locations in the ROM yet.
Quote originally posted by CayCay98:
I was wondering, even though this is supposed to be a "99%" accurate remake of Pokemon Crystal, are you going to input some aesthetic changes like the BW2 Repel System By Darthatron or mugshots with every battle or even Pokemon following you? But I love this hack, and I hope by the next beta I can still use my old save file.
I'm not planning on adding anything in like that, sorry.
And for Beta 3, you most likely will not be able to keep your old save.
Quote originally posted by jcfan4u:
GOODJOB! this honestly is one of the best roms i have ever played. i thank you so much for putting youre time into this but a few questions.....

1. where is wooper and mareep? it says belove dark cave but i searched for about a hour and no luck:/ i also looked where they usually are but still no luck

2. i thought dratini could b bought in the game corner?
1. Union Cave for Wooper, and Mareep isn't available in CD yet.
2. No, that's in Gold and Silver, not Crystal.
Quote originally posted by CrystalMarina:
It looks like I have another Crystal remake to play! It looks great from what I'm seeing so far. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the praise!
Quote originally posted by jcfan4u:
Sorry idk if im missing something but whenever i beat the elite four ive got no call from elm and when i call him or visit him he keeps talking about the egg and to tell him when it hatched....(it hatched awhile back and i visited him with togepi in the 1st slot yet he still asks about the EGG) please help me anyone
This bug has finally been fixed in today's beta, but if you've already gotten the Togepi egg, you're kind of out of luck. If you really REALLY want that Everstone, you'll need to restart the game.
Quote originally posted by sereb:
Just registered to say that I am having a lot of fun playing CrystalDust even if not being able to catch Ledyba or Hoothoot makes me miss my favourite pokes

I grew up with Red and an original gameboy but Silver/Crystal were the pokemon games that really struck a chord with me, so this is great to be able to replay it ~13 years later.
Thanks for the comment!
Quote originally posted by AF13unown:
is remoraid and qwilfish cacthable with good rod in this hack?
Depends on if you can catch them in Crystal or not.
Quote originally posted by Ksiazek Bartlomiej:
I tuned this hack. And play it now on my NDS with SuperCardSD Device... Good work... I wait for Beta 3. If you need help ask me. Also if you want implement extra Pokemon to 27 empty space. I can help you with fully implement of Gogoat with riding function.
I highly doubt I'll need to implement a Gogoat riding function into a 2nd gen remake, but thanks anyways.
Quote originally posted by eXtremeDevil:
I don't know if this has been said before (I have not found anything) but I get a bug when I try to enter the Victory Road (the last trainer next to the door you cross where the policeman ask you about your badges is corrupted and I can never cross the door).

Is there any solution? Thanks!
It sounds like the game glitched up your rival's name for some reason. Not sure what to do about that besides have you send me your save.
Quote originally posted by Chaos Rush:
I've played through Olivine City so far, and I have to say good job. I'm impressed as to how you ported over many little details from FR/LG, such as the stair-climbing animation.

Here are just little quirks I wrote down as I was playing through:
Spoiler:
-Congratulations on actually using a custom sprite for the mother. I'm tired of seeing G/S/C remakes that uses the FR/LG mom, even though in the original G/S/C, Red's mom and Gold's mom had different sprites. But anyways, good job Thanks!

-Asking for daylight savings time is kinda stupid, and it's confusing to say yes or no. Why not just let us reset the time whenever we want? I know that you're trying to be as accurate to the original Crystal as possible, but asking for daylight savings time is just plain obsolete in today's age, where we can change the time of our smart phones whenever we want. Also this would allow flashcart users like me to play time-based events, such as the Bug Catching Contest. I ask for DST for those few users that have an RTC-enabled flash cart. I always want maximum compatibility for all users.

-I hate the New Bark Town music you're using. I've heard it in so many G/S/C remakes. They're terrible remixes that hardly take advantage of the Sappy engine's capabilities. Although I saw that you mentioned earlier that it's being changed, so that's good. Yeah, I hate most of the clonex25 music in the hack too. That's what I have tonti for now!

-Elm's Lab remix is just plain terrible Yep.

-you should probably change the Emerald Match Call jingle to a remix of the PokeGear phone number jingle On tonti's To Do list.

-Loving the PokeGear graphic! Thank blase005 for that!

-G/S/C had different trees for Kanto and Johto, but you're just using the FR/LG tree, just like every other G/S/C remake :/ But you've acknowledged that in the past, so it's good to know that it will get changed by the final. In regards to the trees you sent me, I'm holding off on inserting them because they weren't quite to my liking.

-Congratulations on actually having a regional dex instead of giving us the National Dex, that's the first I've seen in a G/S/C remake. Good job Thanks!

-Can't stand the regular battle music either. I hear it too much, and it doesn't sound very FR/LG-ish, all I hear is that stupid electric guitar instrument. Yeah, something else tonti needs to get on.

-Should the PokeManiac really be using the male Cooltrainer OW sprite? Knowing you, it was probably intentional, but they have no resemblance to each other whatsoever. I have no OW spriter, so I make do with what I have.

-In the original G/S/C, PokeManiac Isaac (Goldenrod Tunnel) had a Lickitung that specifically knew the move Cut. I'm pretty sure it doesn't know Cut in your hack, might want to fix that for accuracy. Fixed. But I'm not entirely sure that his moveset is correct (did it ONLY have Cut, because that's all I saw it use).

-Goldenrod City music is great Thank tonti!

-The very beginning of the evolution music sounds wonky Ehh, I think it sounds okay.

-The Town Map poster graphic that's inside of many houses is exactly the same as FR/LG, which is wrong because the map depicts the shape of Kanto No GFX designer. All people I have on graphics don't do it as their main thing.

-In the original G/S/C, Psychic Greg (Route 37) had a Drowzee that specifically knew the moves Hypnosis and Dream Eater, hence his dialogue. In CrystalDust, he just has a regular Drowzee, so I would fix that just for accuracy. Same issue with this guy too. Were those two its ONLY moves?

-In the Burned Tower, would it really have been that hard to make the beasts actually jump around, instead of... "fly" around? It just looks really unprofessional. No GFX creator.

-You really shouldn't be using the FR/LG Channler sprite for the Medium Trainer class, because they are two separate, distinct Trainer classes Fixed, finally.

-I encountered a wild Tentacool by WALKING behind the lighthouse Fixed.

-unchanged 8-bit GBC tiles in the lighthouse... this is a joke, right? Those 16-bit staircases look really out of place here. No GFX designer; I made do with what I had.


I'll play through up to the Elite Four whenever I have time. This hack is a great Crystal remake, the only problems I have with it are problems I had with the original G/S/C, so from a 100%-nostalgic-remake point-of-view, I have to say this hack is definitely one of the more-polished hacks that I've played. I love how it doesn't feel like I'm playing a noob hack, it feels like I'm actually playing a Pokémon game. I'll definitely be looking forward to the next release!
Responses in bold as always. Thanks for your post!
Quote originally posted by leshaloh:
I guess, I have some sort of bug: after obtaining the badge in Goldenrod, I went to National Park and Sudowoodo tree, but when I tried to go back for squirtbottle, Rockets were everywhere. They block my path to the flower shop, and I can't get to the third floor of Radio Tower to obtain Basement Key and proceed with Rocket's quest (originally it must appear after 7th gym or something like that, after phone call, and no one should block my way to the 3rd floor in that case).
I have no clue. That's never happened to anyone else here.
Quote originally posted by ElitePokes:
I played again to check the graphics update, i like the new elms lab and Goldenrod looks even better now

2 bugs that i found with My Boy Emu 1.5.10:

* The guy who gives miracle seed is bugged he gives me infinity seeds IF I TALK to him when i face him from ABOVE

* After Togepi hatches if i call elm or visit him nothing happens he just saying to call him if the egg changes

Note that i was using speed up from the emulators menu so that could cause those if you have free time you could check those issues

Btw if you add Mikachu could you add some pokes from next Gens just for the fun after main story is over?
For example add Giratina, Arceus, Kyu, Reshiram and other legendaries in a event or some story that teleports the player to another region where in a small hidden area you can fight those pokes xD
Or portals to enter another dimension to catch giratina or dialga and palkia or some thing like that
I think im asking for a lot :D
Both glitches have been fixed.
And you'll see what I have planned much, much later...
Quote originally posted by ElitePokes:
I never asked this before does this hack supports linking, i tried to trade starters from crystaldust to another crystaldust but i got a connection error with my boy emulator by using local link (to connect 2 roms with the same device)

I contacted the devs of my boy and they told me this hack doesnt support link...

I tried with 2 emerald games and traded fine...
It should support linking just fine. Heck, I tried it with physical hardware and it worked great.

Quote originally posted by ElitePokes:
Which rom did you use to make this hack there is a trm release and another from coolrom they are both usa but different not all hacks work on the trm release
Just wondering and i always used trm for this hack but i noticed that i can patch the other rom too so i wonder if theres a difference
I'm using a clean ROM ripped straight off my cartridge. No save patches, nothing.
Quote originally posted by Andrew13112001:
I have a major problem.I am at Ecruteak City,I battled my rival,and I fall down.Then after the legendary beast left,I talked to Eusine.Then,he got to the place where it was supposed to be a ladder.Then,I needed myself to go back up to...but there is no ladder .-. .I checked on Youtube,and there was a ladder...but on my game,it's nowhere.I can't play anymore this amazing hack ((((
HELP PLEASE!
I haven't had this issue, sorry.

Quote originally posted by AntiRellik1:
This hack is great. How the heck did you manage to get the clock set up immediately after pressing new game? I also want to know how you managed to get it to warp you to your room immediately (removing the ugly truck scene). I'm guessing they're ASM hacks.
Yep. Very frustrating to make but also very rewarding once they were done.

It really depends on the cheat. Some work and some don't. I just recommend not using them at all.

You should play it now! It won't be done for quite some time!

Now that that's out of the way (phew), it's time for what you've all been waiting patiently for.
(also, new [really old but I just found it again] update CSS!)
Intro and Bag Update - 10/14/2013


This has been a long time in the making, mainly because of the bag. The intro actually took shorter to make than the bag. Can you believe it?

Anyways, new features in this patch include:
  • A whole slew of bugfixes!
  • A COMPLETELY NEW INTRO, made by shiny quagsire!
  • The bag interface completely ported over from FireRed!
  • A new Youngster encounter theme from tonti!
  • A new sprite for the Medium!
  • And more? I think so, maybe.
Download it, as per usual, from the link in the first post!

Here's a video for people who want to watch the intro for themselves:

Wow! This crystal remake is awesome! I can't wait for the next beta! You're AWESOME MAN!
Edit: Just a thought, maybe you should replace the boy battle sprite with something like in Shiny Gold. It would look more accurate.

I played up to the first Youngster battle, no bugs found and that new intro is so badass now you have 1 more thing that makes this hack unique xD

You even changed that rijon warning at the startup its so better now :D

And congrats for reaching 2MB on the ips file lol
