It's been a bit since I updated, but I must say that Shiny Quagsire did a lot of good work on the intro!

I have a slight problem with the Pokegear... Whenever I talk to people who give me their phone numbers (Hiker on R33 or Bug Catcher on Route 34), it says in the text box i got their number, but when i check the pokegear, their names aren't there

Sounds delicious :D Brought a tear to my eye.
Well all right then, I'm not one to judge others based on which sense they can taste with. XD

This looks really nice ;O;

gonna have to add it to my list lol
Awesome!
Quote originally posted by unknown231:
another update, i hope it finished the kanto quest already.

more ups to come
Nope, no Kanto quest, sorry.
Quote originally posted by Neeragon:
Even after patching it up with fresh emerald(U) it doesn't work.! Why.!
Might be your save settings if it's a white screen when you boot up the ROM.
Quote originally posted by Master_Bait:
Just wanna ask something. Is it possible to patch another Emerald-only patch over a CrystalDust-patched ROM? (for example: patching a Moemon Emerald patch over the CD-patched rom)
It depends on if the two hacks overwrite each other's space. In this case, it seems very likely.
Quote originally posted by UltraMew:
Maybe you could make 2 versions - one official-seeming and one with custom things (Mikachu, newer Pokémon from Gen 3, etc...)
Too much work to make the game branch.
Quote originally posted by robsterinside:
Anxiously waiting for complete Kanto! This is my favorite hack
Thanks for the comment!
Quote originally posted by Lightracer:
I'm so excited to see beta 3! Kanto! Kanto! Kanto!
Not for a while, sorry.
Quote originally posted by ElitePokes:
What i want to see more than Kanto is the new storyline in Sevii Islands xD
Hehehe, that's going to be fun!
Quote originally posted by Lightracer:
Hey, i found a glitch. Talking to the scientist at the 3rd floor of the radio tower lower left corner, will turn the screen dark red and corrupt music beeps will play on the backround.
Fixed in this version.

Not soon, but you will see it in the future.

That's normal. I haven't programmed the trainers into the Pokégear yet.

Bags 'n Bugs - 11/17/2013


Pretty small update today:
  • The bags have gotten a new coat of paint, especially the female bag (which was broken in the bag update).
  • Various bugs have been fixed from reports by various people.
As always, the download link's in the first post!

Hey! Diego,
What about the Ruins of Alph puzzle? Will you be able to implement the fully working ROA puzzle in the next beta or in future updates? I kinda miss them as they were really fun... It will make the hack more authentic...
BTW, the CrystalDust is getting more & more authentic with every little update & effort that you put in this project, making it the most accurate & authentic Pokemon Crystal GBA remake till date... Great work dude, keep it up...
We fully support Pokemon CrystalDust and admire & appreciate your hard work, effort & dedication... Good luck with the project...
Best Regards!

I checked, and the moemon emerald patch works. Just apply it to a clean Emerald rom, and then apply the Crystal Dust patch.
Edit: I spoke too soon. Some encounters cause the game to freeze.

The Ruins of Alph are actually being worked on by someone right now. No idea when they'll be done.

Yeah, as to be expected. Hacks use the same free space, so something's bound to get overwritten.

Why do you think there won't be any original content? I think you're forgetting the Sevii Islands.

Can't wait for this to be released.
If you can pull this off as well as Game Freak would have made it (meaning no errors in the scripting, every animation working fine, everything working perfectly; Game Freak-quality basically):

So many current rom hacks have errors in their scripts that kind of break the immersion for me, I'm having trouble finding one I like.

Well, then why are you complaining on something so simple (I think, Mikachu) but you're adding huge things? (Sevii Islands) Mikachu's sprite is even in the intro already! Meh, still cool. Better than Liquid C------.

That and having extra rivals and stuff. Don't get me wrong, the occasional addition is fine, but sometimes I prefer just a straight Gen II -> Gen III remake style, which is what CrystalDust excels in doing. LC on the other hand makes gameplay more challenging and interesting with new elements making the game a little more 'fresh'.

The ticket for the S.S. Aqua isn't in this beta. You'll be able to go to Kanto in beta 3 and up.

There is a way to get out, I believe it's somewhere at the south of the bottom floor of Burnt Tower.

Also, how do I fly back to Joto, once I entered Canto?

You can't fly back to Johto from Kanto. Talk to the man next to an Abra in the Pokemon Center at Indigo Plateau.

Oh I see. Is that how it was meant to be in the original Crystal game?

Hello. I'm getting a glitch and can't progress. I reached Ecruteak and entered the gym. Instead of the dude telling me that Morty isn't there, he stands in the middle and if I speak to him nothing happens. I can actually go to the back and fight Morty.



But I didn't. I went to the Burned tower and found Eusine and Morty there. When I tried to speak to Silver, the same thing happened: he doesn't say anything and stays there.

Mikachu's in the intro as kind of my "company logo", really. However, I don't want to insert actual fake Pokémon that weren't in the original game. I'm fine with extra plot that doesn't change the actual gameplay so much, but Fakemon are where I draw the line.

This is basically the difference between CD and LC. Nice summation. :D

Sorry, but you can't get the Aqua Ticket in this beta.
By the way, if anyone still has issues with the Togepi egg stuff, send me your save in a PM and I'll try to fix it.

Interesting, people haven't reported glitches with the Burned Tower for quite some time. Tell me, both of you, what you did prior to that (any side stuff, like the Ruins of Alph especially) and we'll see if there's a link.

You can catch a grand total of one for now: Suicune in the Tin Tower.

And now, for something I've been working on for at least three weeks:
Ruins of Alph Update - 12/10/2013

Yeah, you read that right. The old and buggy Ruins of Alph puzzles from the first beta of CrystalDust are back, and this time, they don't break everything when used.

On top of that, the braille on the walls of the chambers has finally been replaced with proper Unown text like they were supposed to be this whole time!

Some small bugs were also fixed with this update:
  • Using the Escape Rope inside of the first cavern shows the proper earthquake animation upon reentering.
  • Other miscellaneous things.
As always, you can download this update at the link in the first post!
