    Thank goodness that was it... all I needed to do was change the number of objects from 3 to 4, and the Gym's working again! Now I can test out whether the lines I changed and/or removed for the "infinite TM" bit were the lines I needed to change and/or remove.

    It sort of might of been, upon further investigation. I think there was a syntax error in the Gym's map file. I just hope it was only that... anyway, I'm compiling and will confirm for sure once I get to that point in my next attempted test run.

    Whatever it turns out to be, I hope it's not the trainer (of the Lass class) I added.

    As for Pewter Gym, I seem to be at a dead end. I'm wondering if the sprites had anything to do with the Gym crashing the game.

    I'm honestly surprised you're still watching it. I'm probably not going to actually start watching it at this point if that's the way they're going to be. That's absurd!
    Actually, I'm not watching it. I just lurked through the threads for the Hoenn episodes a little bit.

    I almost feel like Red++ and Christmas should have a dose of "girl power" in response to Generations, if you know what I mean. Christmas is already off to a very good start with having Kris as the Champion, Green as the final endgame boss (assuming it's the same as the 2012 version), and the planned postgame stuff with Lorelei.

    Red++ could also do something with Lorelei in the postgame, as well as maybe do something with some of the female gym leaders (like Misty or Sabrina).

    I hadn't heard that explanation for the Orange Islands, but it makes perfect sense. I know that GS were already well into development by the time that the anime came out, and that that was why Ho-oh was in the first episode, why Togepi appeared, etc. The fact that it had no game connection and was very character-of-the-day driven with random standalone islands, it makes the most sense as a filler arc that they could end at any time when they were ready to start on the Johto side. And of course, the deadline and delay issue is a good explanation for the lackluster Kanto appearance. The things we come to realize later.
    The Orange Islands also allowed them to continue to tease things from GS, such as Tracey having a Marill, the introduction of the GS Ball, and the 2nd movie centering around Lugia.

    While Kanto got rushed to a premature end, the exact opposite ironically ended up happening with Johto. With no new games immediately on the horizon and talks about GS possibly being the final Pokémon games, the anime's writers wanted to make Johto last as long as possible, hence the sluggish pace and loads of pointless filler. For all of the hype and buildup it got, Johto turned out to be a very disappointing anime, which sadly began the downfall of Pokémania.

    That reminds me, I had someone comment in the Red++ thread recently saying they were lost because I had moved the Tea key item. So I had to remind them that Tea as an item only existed in FireRed, and they needed to go get a normal drink out of the vending machine to give him. Haha.

    You probably already know this, but the Tea was an anti-sequence breaking measure GF implemented into FRLG. They wanted to keep people from skipping Rock Tunnel and getting into Saffron early by trading in Pokémon holding vending machine drinks.

    Interestingly, it was actually possible to do this cheat in RBY, although you needed Stadium or Stadium 2 to pull it off (since RBY don't recognize held items).

    But yeah, I assumed GSC was where your love for Lance came from. There wasn't much to his story or personality shown in RBY, but they really expanded his character in GSC and made him a real person. Made him a lot more relatable and likeable too. Kinda like how Flannery's characterization made her come off as more real to me, which is part of why I like her so much. Plus aside from her hair, she looked like a real person too.
    Yeah, RBY Lance had no characterization beyond "Dragons are cool!" and even seemed to act like kind of a brat when you beat him (more like Clair, interestingly). In GSC, we not only learned about his family and where he came from, but we also got a better sense of his personality and the warm, kind, heroic man he is.

    Of course, this is yet another place where FRLG dropped the ball, completely reverting him back to his one-note RBY characterization instead of fleshing him out more and setting up his later role in GSC.

    I love Lance so much that I sometimes get a little sad when he's not in a Pokémon game, and I can tell that you feel the same way about Flannery with the way you always give her cameos in your games.

    Yes, that's what it was! I had a hidden objects pointer in the wrong place near the top!

    After further review, I think I might have figured it out. I'll confirm for sure once I finish fixing the Transgender Nidoran Glitch and compile the resulting game files.

    Oh, I was asking about the hidden items because I added just two--one to Viridian Forest and one to Pewter City, both between existing hidden items in Viridian Forest and Mt. Moon--and that alone appears to have broken the hidden items mechanic completely by accident.

    As for Pewter Gym: did the alpha you received experience any damaging glitches upon entry into Pewter Gym?

    Also: how do you do hidden items?

    OK, now Pewter Gym looks totally glitched up from the second I enter. Do you have any idea what may be the cause of that?

    Here's a picture illustrating the glitch, similar to the 1/256 miss glitch which we've both eliminated in our hacks:

    I just now discovered a bug in the gender mechanic that allows for transgender Nidoran. Is it in Red++, too?

    Reading about the Hoenn episodes of Generations has only further confirmed the special's sexist bias.

    Yes, they showed Brendan.

    Look, I can kind of see the argument for favoring the boys in Kanto/Johto since RBY and GS didn't have female PCs, but there's absolutely NO way in hell you can get away with that argument in Hoenn. There's little question of which Hoenn PC is the most iconic and recognizable, and it ain't Brendan, that's for sure.

    At this point, it should be clear that Generations is just going to show the male PCs and give the middle finger to the girls.

    In fact, even the female NPCs seem to be getting the middle finger. As far as I know, only three female characters of significance even appeared in the entirety of episodes 1-7, two of which were in the same episode: Lorelei, Agatha, and Courtney. Out of all the female characters who exist in Gens 1-3, are they really the only ones who are worth any screentime? Not even Misty, Sabrina, Jasmine, or Clair?

    Generations can go completely psyduck itself. Whoever made it clearly doesn't give a rat's ass about female fans and female characters. I guess I should be used to this treatment by now, but it's still angering.


    The idea that they just didn't have enough space to include a full Kanto is a myth perpetuated by people who have no idea what the inside of the games are like. For example, look at all the new areas and whatnot that Polished Crystal has added without having to make the ROM bigger. In Gold and Silver, there are several entire ROM banks that are completely empty that could've been used for anything. One ROM bank is enough to hold all of the event, script, and text data for most of the towns in Johto, so they could've put tons of events in there. There are also several fully-inserted but unused maps, and plenty of room that they didn't have to shrink the existing Kanto maps. I have heard the anecdote that originally they couldn't get the rom to fit on the cartridge even with only Johto being available, and then someone stepped in and rewrote half the engine to waste less space and they put Kanto in. Sounds like hogwash to me, though. And even still, there was plenty of room in the rom to have filled out Kanto better. I'm guessing it was more a case of laziness and/or approaching deadlines.
    Well, the fact that they ever considered such broken, glitchy messes like RB acceptable to release in the first place should probably tell you that GF probably weren't the best judges of quality.

    It's possible that GS may have indeed suffered from deadline issues. I read somewhere that the games actually had gotten delayed by about a year, which is why the Orange Islands arc ended up happening in the anime. The Kanto arc was rushed to be finished by the time GS came out (Gen 2 was already well into development by the time the anime started, hence Ho-Oh's cameo in the first episode), but since GS got delayed, they had to create a new mini arc to fill time.

    Very true. Most of us who grew up with Gen 1 and 2 all saw GSC as the better games. Sure, Gen 1 started it all, but it was also a buggy mess. If it wasn't for nostalgia, it would be almost unplayable to some of us at this point due to how broken it was mechanically. Yet another reason that I deny being a Genw***er any time someone brings it up. If I was one, I wouldn't think Gen 1 needed fixing, so I wouldn't be making Red++ lmao. But yeah, Gen 1 has a place in my heart for nostalgia, but Gen 2 and Johto are the ones who make it into my top list, and I know other people have to be the same way.
    Same here. The big reason FRLG disappointed me so much was because of how little they fixed from RB.

    GSC also had more polished storytelling than RBY. I can certainly tell you that most of my love for Lance comes from GSC and not RBY, that's for sure.

    I'm sure right. They could've done it if they'd wanted to, but instead they chose to reboot it. Another reason is probably gonna come down to Money, as well. Why make it so you can keep using the ones you have, when they can make you have to buy even more games to complete the Pokedex? That was probably someone higher up stepping in and saying "No, let's not make an adapter that people will buy once. Let's make 2 new games so they'll have to buy both."
    Oh, Gen 3 was probably the PEAK of money-grubbing from GF/Nintendo. The fact that they even made you buy those two mediocre Gamecube games just to fill the Pokédex says it all.

    That's odd. I could've sworn I had the relevant part typed out correctly.
