Oh man, this looks awesome!
I can't wait to play! Well, I would play it, but my R4's GBA Emulator doesn't support Emerald :o
Nice hack though!

I have released the next Beta as the previous release had a few outdated errors that needed work on, this release doesn't just focus on fixing any existing bugs, I have also added a few new tidbits here and there. Some of these are minor changes such as type changes, attack changes etc and then some are more notable such as the replacement of the outdated RSE Sprites, Replacing Shuckle with Roserade and Inserting more OW sprites.

Beta 1.3 has been released which includes significant changes, all of which can be found below:

Changelog

- Individually inserted most of the Pokémon Black & White Sprites replacing the Pokémon Emerald Sprites, Pokemon look more fresh! (No Sinnoh/Unova Pokémon)

- Roserade has been inserted, she replaces Shuckle.

- Added Intro Text (At the beginning of the game to verify that the ROM has been patched)

- Updates/Changes to several boss teams including Gym Leaders, Rivals, E4 and Maxie & Archie giving a more
tactical approach to these battles

- Altered some movepools, i.e Chimechos now has eight additional moves

- Changed several abilities and types making things a little more even

- Edited a few Attacks regarding PP, Power and Accuracy. Example: Grasswhistle now has an Accuracy of 100

- Rebalaced the Base Stat Total distribution of Pokemon (Increased & Decreased) for more balance

- Updated Genders to suit respected Pokemon i.e Mr. Mime - Male, Luvdisc - Female

- Fixed some bugs including The Sky Pillar and Route 106 errors.

- Replaced some Ow's to match their species (Jirachi, Eevee, Bulbasaur, Charmander & Squirtle) - Thanks to Reverie_Aion for his Sprite Palletes

Hi, I just started playing this Pokemon hack and found a bug in Rustboro City: After entering the Pokecenter I was trapped in a 1x1 black room and couldn't leave any more.
Youtube video of the bug:


PS: Despite of that the hack seems to be pretty awesome

Thanks for pointing that out, I've fixed that error and I've re-uploaded the Beta. Strange for that to happen cause I tried it myself just now and the same thing happened, it was the Warp that had been moved onto a Black tile which I don't remember editing at any point.

I successfully patched the file but when I extract the file to my android the game is the original emerald and not expert emerald.

What I am doing wrong the the game ends up not being expert emerald though I patched it.

Will I be able to continue my old savegame when updating to the patched version?

The title screen still says about original Emerald so don't worry. You can check whether you were successful by playing a bit and see the Poke encounters on Route 201

Yes you can still play with your old save but Suicune mentioned that it would be wise to start a fresh game.

I fixed the problem. I used the final version of the patch and it worked. I guess I was using the old one before and it didn't work.

So far I beat the first gym boss, so far it's clean no bugs/glitches.

I'm curious, how much harder is this compared to the original? Is this even beatable without cheats and hacks?

Yes definitely this game is beatable. Just use a good team as well a strategy to beat the hack.

Sire, the new patch's great!
Even though the new sprites're not animated at all, at least I could have a fresher look than the last patch.

Ps would it be possible if gen5 moves were added?

This glitch has always been there and as for the corrupted cries, they've also been an ongoing problem since I started the hack really and it's come to a point where it's beyond fixable unfortunately.

Are you using a DSTWO? If so that's been doing that for years and years. If not I'm surprised you can even GBA. :U

Oh, and as for the seedot/nuzleaf, it's beyond fixing and has been since the hack was started. It's caused by Advance Map cutting into the wrong data, and the only way to fix it is to completely start the hack over from scratch. Otherwise it can only get worse (and yes, it has been and will be as long as work is being done). I doubt anyone would want to do that after all the time put into this hack, so I see no problem not fixing it in this particular case. >.<

Also this is a dumb request, but since you have rosa in why not Licklicky or Ambipom? They're both one of those that would be pretty much unphased by Gen III mechanics. It's probably not hard to find something not very used by players to replace or something for it.
