    Oh that's really good news. I'm not sure I have the time though, unfortunately I rarely have time to spend hacking these days :(

    Great. I myself have forgot about this lol
    Thank you for the fix and join us on pokefirered if you have time (It's about to hit 60%)!

    Hey, I'm just the most late one can be. But I found a fix to this issue, it's unfortunately a typo in the way I did the logic. The fix is here:

    I'll take a look at it in the up coming days, thanks.

    It crashed on vanilla firered.
    I don't think it can be an issue in the link process, as all the hooks look okay.

    What I did was:
    1. (Say, we use mGBA here) I load the game without a save file and play until the protagonist saw his mom the first time and talked to her.
    2. Save.
    3. Quit mGBA.
    4. Reopen mGBA and Load the game. It will crash after start menu.

    This is my output.txt:

    close + re-open

    It's also possible that something goes wrong in the compiling process tho, like, some symbol's value is not correctly assigned when the object gets linked
    I can test it tomorrow on a clean firered ROM and tell you the result.

    Hmm, testing on a clean ROM and my hack I'm able to get it to work on both mgba and vbam. Restart as in restart without closing the emulator? Or close and re-open?
    I'd like to test on hardware but I haven't got it :(

    Hi, I tested your save expansion on shiny gold. But if I save the game and restart the emulator (mgba/no$gba/vbam), it will crash and try to jump to bios (0x00000000). JPAN's vanilla hack worked.

    Actually it's hard to decide what to do at this point except contributing to PRET projects. Development is more like non sense because with pokeemerald documentation (and some easy function port if we still want to work on FR) it's way too easy and can only encourage people to apply this kind of stuff blindly. For research and documentation PRET people and egg has already did great work and we'd better rely on those information

    I haven't hacked for a few months now, I'm on my seasonal demotivation break atm

    Are you still hacking now? I can see you committed a lot this year
  12. FBI

    Awesome, best of luck on that stuff. Hopefully it'll be useable soon!
  13. jiangzhengwenjzw

    Yes, I've contributed like 15 source files. I'm only doing source code decompiling and some directly related data decomp stuff (but obviously not too much).

    July 2nd, 2019 2:35 PM
    oh I see. And now you are contributing too?

    Many files can be directly ported from pokeem (like, 50% functions in those files with a EM counterpart are direct copy (with some renaming tho) 30% need some tweaks and 20% need a complete rewrite or is tossed in emerald)
    The real problem is that (almost) only pikalax and garak were contributing to the repo :/
