Pokémon Sigma Σmerald

ROM Base: Emerald (BPEE v1)

Pokemon Sigma Emerald ROM hack of Emerald originally created by Tlachtli. It aims to be a game resembling a 3rd Gen remake de-make, with an unchanged storyline and upgraded mechanics. After a hiatus from mid-2014 to 2015, the project was handed over to me. For a rundown on the hack, the original thread can be found [here].

- Steven can be re-battled once a day**
- Elite Four + Champion have new dialogue and upgraded teams upon rematch

Are you using Emerald (BPEE) as the base ROM?

One thing you could consider doing is re-adding animations (once I'm finished with my Sugimori project), I'll be releasing a patch so that could be useful.

Also I'd definitely recommend adding some more of the new abilities from the ability resource thread. I loved the original Sigma Emerald because it started the boat rolling with Emerald hacking and ability porting, so the more abilities the better!

Wow awesome, I'll definitely be using the patch once it's finished.

I actually do want to implement new abilities into the hack, but it's just that I haven't gone around to learning how to insert ASM routines yet. A lot of my focus for now is being put into getting better at scripting.

I was wondering, could we please get some details on the fix for the glitchy Fortree gym doors? I'd greatly appreciate learning how you dealt with it as I'm having a similar problem myself with my own little projects.

Credit given where due of course if I ever put it out.

I'll post the fix here for easy reference, so you can definitely go ahead and use it. Just be sure to credit Le pug.

Spoiler:
Quote originally posted by Le pug:
The rotating doors are a work of two specials (aka asm br0000). special 0xCC and 0xCD. CC is what makes them rotate and CD is what makes them appear correctly. If you open up XSE you should see at 0x2165C4 this:
'---------------
#org 0x2165C4
special 0xCD
end

and at 0x2165B6 you should see:
'---------------
#org 0x2165B6
special 0xCC
end

simple right? Make sure the level scripts are correct too for the map. 0x2165C4 should be tied into var 0x4000 with a variable 0x4000.

Thanks a lot! I found that it was a simple misprinted special all along.

OP has been updated with Alpha 4.2! Nothing too major here other than refinements on palettes and scripts; from the second champion win onward, the event with May and Professor Birch will no longer occur. Instead, Wallace will say something different and proceed straight to the Hall of Fame record room (just like Steven does in ORAS)

EDIT: a4.2 has been re-uploaded upon discovery that I accidentally overwrote something that was stored next to Wallace's original script; fortunately I have several "rollback" copies. Portions of the scripts that have had commands added to it have been assigned to dynamic pointers and then re-inserted into a stable ROM.

This looks good, and I'm glad that someone picked up Sigma Emerald's development, but my goodness are those palette changes in the OW awful.

Seriously, that's the only thing I would change if I were in your shoes. Otherwise, everything looks A-OK.

Thanks for the feedback! The color changes are really more of an experiment to see what I might have been able to do with how the game looks. They can be changed back to the original Emerald palettes with ease

The location text file says that Aron should appear on B1 of Granite Cave, but according to AdvanceMap, Aron is not set to appear on that floor. It is set to appear on the other floors within Granite Cave that it is supposed to appear, but not on B1.

Huh, that's weird. I don't remember changing any of the encounters in Granite Cave.

Anywho, it's fixed now and will be included in the next update! Thanks for informing me

I think somewhere along the way, possibly even before you started, the text file stopped being 100% accurate. I ran into Marill on Route 112, and Marill isn't even supposed to appear on Route 112, according to the text file.

In case there's any question, consider this my blessing for the project

Looks good so far! I'm glad the sick Lapras is in the screenshots, she was my favorite addition

Alpha 4.4 is up, once again focused on polishing some minor errors in the game.

will there be any difficulty updates? maybe some music patches with songs from FR/LG?
As of right now, no. I think the difficulty is fine as it is, especially with the Gym Leader rematches and the upgraded teams added for the post-credit Pokemon League Challenge. There is still a lot for me to learn before moving onto music hacking, but some of the legendaries in the game do use the FR/LG encounter music (like the legendary bird trio and Clebi)

What I'm looking to do next is probably add some ASM routines when I get the time to learn how to insert them into the game. (like the BW repel system) And when MrDollSteak finishes with his patch I'll be taking a stab at re-implementing animated sprites.

Alpha 5 is up! Now includes some ASM stuff :D (at least ones inserted by me)

The Elite Four rematch mugshots have finally been fixed, and some outdated mechanics have been updated, such as Rough Skin damage and the fading of poison status in the overworld. EVs have also been capped to 252 for each stat instead of the original 255 to match the newer games.

I was playing 4.4 and when I got to slateport all the people outside(in the city) were gone and I couldn't enter any of the buildings. I was using the patch from here, https://forums.pokemmo.eu/index.php?/topic/54115-ips-the-other-moemon-emerald-port-compatible-with-sigma-emerald-updated-8-2-15/ I don't think that should cause any problems though.

This is because I re-pointed the event table at Slateport to facilitate new scripts that were added (more specifically, the berry girls); same with Mossdeep. The creator of the Moemon patch would have to create a new patch based on my branch for it to work.

Any other ones you have encountered? I checked Geodude's learnset through G3HS and it seems to be fine. And was it a wild Geodude or one owned by a trainer?

EDIT: I tested wild Geodude in the Magma Hideout and they have the correct moves.
