To answer your question about the Pokemarts, I can enter them, but my character cannot communicate with the person behind the counter no matter what I try. No window or dialogue ever comes up.
I have picked up the Town Map from Gary's sister, and some potions and a pokeball in Veridian Forrest, all of which show up in my inventory. So I believe it is not an item or inventory glitch, but rather the person behind the counter.

On the other hand, as far as I know, the Pokemon Center and everything in it works as expected, I can heal pokemon, and I even picked up a Mew. Professor Oak's assistant seems to be useless though, as he only introduces himself.

As another thing I have found, which I'm sure you may know about, when attempting to communicate with Professor Oak, he asks if I would like my Pokedex rated, and regardless of whether or not I say Yes or No, he immediately then asks if I would like to rest my pokemon. I know I only have 2 pokemon, he could at least tell me that I suck at the game haha.

I wasn't expecting you to respond so quickly.
I edited my last post, and in case you didn't notice the edit, what I said was:
"As another thing I have found, which I'm sure you may know about, when attempting to communicate with Professor Oak, he asks if I would like my Pokedex rated, and regardless of whether or not I say Yes or No, he immediately then asks if I would like to rest my pokemon. I know I only have 2 pokemon, he could at least tell me that I suck at the game haha."

Anyways, I'm glad to hear that the next version will be coming out tomorrow. I've already performed one update, but I didn't care about my save at the time. Would you care to explain how to update the game in which I can transfer my save over to the new version?

Unfortunately due to me updating some parts of essentials the save files are no longer compatible and I've not found any way around this.

Mew is the current giveaway via mystery gift.

The oaks assistant only does something if you have more than 10 pokemon.

I'm hoping the next version will come out tomorrow. I usually have issues getting it to encrypt

Speaking to oak is sorted

Some things tat might great to add would maybe hav a prof. aid give u like 5 pokeballs at the start of the game, i think the original did that. also i saw on ur screenshot pokebattles that the background was fluid but on mine there its like the background wasn't big enough and started to replay the background. hmmmm its difficult to say. keep up the good work :D, and since this is fan made maybe u could take out the traded pokemon not listening/gaining extra exp. wanted to use mew against brock but it stopped listening

As far as i'm aware the original game didn't give out pokeballs, though i might be mistaken, i've not played it from the start for a while

I'm trying to keep it as close to the original, and all games have the stop listening bit in them so i'm going to keep it in.

Another thing that I want to add, I think the guy that stands at the front of all the gyms is suppose to say more than just "Hello". In Brock's gym I think he introduced you to what gym battles were. Not completely sure though. Are you still expecting to put out the next update today?
Since you stated that due to certain updates making it impossible to keep our saves going, would it be possible to make the save an external file to the main game. That may solve the issue by having the game write a separate file. That way it would be much easier to just copy over, however, if you intended to do that, perhaps you would already have it that way. It would be really nice to be able to play on multiple saves though.

I'm having a problem with the updater. It stopped updating due to "Lost connection" or something like that, and now i can't get rid of it. That error message wont go away so I'm unable to close it. What should I do?

The save files are already external. All updates use the same save file. The problem is with the latest update theres changes to the way the save files are done, making previous ones incompatible since information that the new version wants is missing.
The save files are usually stored in C:\Users\USERNAME\Saved Games\Pokemon Lightning Yellow

The next update is actually uploading and should be finished in about 15-20 minutes

You could try closing it using task manager

I don't have access to that pathway since I am using Windows XP, and thus I can't find where my saved game file is. Is there a way to chance the the directory in which the RGSS Player saves to?
I've been looking all through the different users under Documents and Settings, and within Application Data under each, but I can't find anything.

If you do a search on your computer for "Game.rxdata" you should find the save file

Oh, well in that case, it's in the folder with the rest of the game's files. Glad to know that it isn't too hard to find haha.

Anyways, my game is telling me there is an update now, but when I open the updater, it tells me that my game is up to date. So now I could use some assistance there.

I have encountered the same message as the post above mine.

Script 'Interpreter * Edited' line 276: RuntimeError occurred.

EDIT 2: When catching Pikachu, I could not see the pokeball that was catching it.

Those errors are now sorted. The last was was just to do with a missing file.
I guess i need to stop using a save file to test since i don't get half the errors when i do

An update will come out either later tonight or tomorrow depending on how long getting it ready takes

Well, I'm hoping for tonight so I can play it in school this week ;-)
When your Rival challenges you, in the English version, I think he says "Hey" not "Oi" haha, I could be mistaken, but it was kind've bothering me.

yeah, that text has been changed. i've fixed an issue with exp gain, and made it so that eevee can evolve into leafeon on a certain map. glaceon isn't done yet, i havnen't decided where the ice rock should go

The 0.17 patch is uploading, its says its going to take 30-45 minutes so its best to wait an hour before trying to patch

Seafoam Islands would be a decent place to locate it.
Not sure if you would be willing to add any particular part of a map that isn't known to Kanto, but you should feel free to add your own Island or some sort of special location that you cannot travel to until you defeat the Elite 4. You could make it so that the player needs to speak with Bill about some mysterious island, and he could add it to your map as somewhere you could fly to.

Over where the entrance to the Rock Tunnel is, you surf south to the Power Plant, you could open up the rocks at the north of that river to lead to a new area

The Power Plant would be a good place for the Electabuzz evolutionary item, and the Building on Cinnabar would be nice for Magmar's item.
I think you have been pulling elements of Kanto a lot from the newer games, but I would definitely go more for a classic Cinnabar Island, especially allowing the MissingNo. glitch (don't forget that MissingNo. is associated with 4 different images... Iwould love the fossil Kabutos or Aerodactyl haha)

I think I understand the GTS and all, but is there a way for me to trade with another friend of mine that is also playing the game? Can I put a password on my pokemon that someone has to put in successfully to trade pokemon with me?

On your website, when I attempt to view the Overall World Map, all I see is an outline of the image with a message in it that says "The image "http :// lightning-yellow com/Maps/world-map png" cannot be displayed because it contains errors." I can save it and open it though. Any chance you could keep the image as large as it is and reduce the quality of it?

Also, I agree with the post above mine. It kind've lags when you exit the bag, and it is easily to reenter the bag due to impatience. Did it like 3 times in a row once. I exited the bag, quickly selected Fight, and unless I waited briefly, it would keep taking me back into the bag.

EDIT: Rival still glitches into the air when sending out Eevee, but at least it doesn't break the game now. I am still using my old save though, which may affect things.

EDIT2: Rival still says Oi, not sure if you meant that to be on the next update or not. On a new save, Rival still jumps into the air.

EDIT3: Getting a game ending error when Caterpie evolves into Metapod. Tried it twice now and at the end of the evolution the game breaks and crashes.

At the moment seaform seems to be the best place to put it, probably on the first map you come across.

Cinnabar will be the same as it was in the 1st gen games.

MissingNo. already has one version of its sprite implemented, its basic form. The ghost/fossil forms aren't done yet. In yellow there was actually 5 sptites, the 5th being unique to yellow. http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wi...no#Yellow_form

As for the GTS, i'm hoping to have that feature done at some point. its definatly on the todo list. I'm planning on it being used in conjunction with the palpad. You add a users online id to your palpad and then when using the gts it asks if you want to do a global trade or palpad only trade.

The world map on the website needs updating, most of the maps on it are out of date and now don't line up with the newer/redone maps

I'm managed to reproduce that issue with battling, though its fix is unknown at the moment

The glitches with the rival you'll find that most important trainers that have more than one sprite do this. Its on my todo list to fix but is low priority at the moment.

Can you tell me where the rival says oi. I've changed it in one place but may have missed another.

Evolving is sorted. Strange since i managed to evolve my eevee to leafeon without issue testing before i updated the patch

New version will be out later, which will include all the maps between fuchsia and route 12, and 12 will be complete with items and trainers

In the anime, Cinnabar island had more of a volcano theme to it, and perhaps you could expand on the research laboratory on the island and have it connect to an underground volcano or something. I think it would be very interesting.

Your Rival says Oi after he takes the Pokeball when you attempt to leave and he challenges you to a battle. It's something to the degree of "Oi, lets battle our new awesome as **** pokemon." And I did notice that all of the trainers glitch into the air which I think you mentioned.

That extention of the GTS sounds great!!!

Thanks for that, i had missed it out. I'd changed it when he takes the pokeball before you get it.

I'll think about expanding cinnabar, though finding a tileset for it might be a problem unless i go for standard cave tileset, but it wouldn't look much like a volcano cave

Just attempted to use the GTS talking to the either of the two GTS brothers in the Pewter City PokeCenter, caused the game to crash. Not sure what the issue is, although I'm sure you know about it, if not, I can post the error.

In the generation that had Groudon, there was a whole section that had to do with a volcano. I'm not saying to directly steal that map, but you could at least steal the tile colors that were used.
