    I had created another day and night-system now with seasons. It's based on interdpth's RTC and supports R/S/FR/LG/Em in all languages. Unfortunately you must install interdpth's RTC in R/S/Em too to use this DNS-System. But this tool can install it, so you need only a few bytes of free space in your ROM.

    Additionally...
    • ... Offsets in 32MB ROMs are supportet and you can decide if you want to write the Offset with the 8, 9 or nothing, 1.
    • ... the DNS supports battles.
    • ... I had to split the 5th time period in the script at midnight so I had decided to make 6 time periods.
    • ... you can decide to install all, the RTC and DAN, the RTC and seasons or only the RTC.
    • ... finally both systems (DAN and Seasons) writes an statusbyte in the RAM which represents the current time period and Season.
    Screen:

    Unfortunately i'm not allowed to post any links or pictures from the DAN, because i have less then 15 posts. So i must post censored links...

    I must say that this is a really nice tool! I saw that it was supported by A-map 1.95, so I decided to try this out, and I was seriously impressed. This is a very nice tool!

          Hmm it seems that turning off the DAN Battles causes the game to crash upon entering a battle.

            Seems both very useful and very interesting.

            Being a beginning hacker, I hope you build more tools like this--there are many trainer editors, etc., but few things like these.

              Other than the fact that setting the clock in RSE (and also Jambo's custom day-of-the-week setting routine) is no no longer supported, I like this tool. At least the clock is displayed correctly. If you could just add in support for these two things, I would be grateful.

              In other news, I seem to not be able to remove the old RTC/DN system from my FireRed ROM. It gives me an unhandled exception and quits.

                    Great tool, but the screen make flickers when using DAN in battles (which you can't disable without crash).

                    May I suggest to not use dynamic checking of the time during battles in order to not refresh palettes everytime.

                            Good news is it worked fine..
                            Bad news is I don't know how to use it. = (
                            Can anyone post a tutorial?

                            Thanks.

                              I had intalled the RTC and DAN system in Emerald rom (Japanese version) and used the GBA flash card with the RTC to play it. I found out that the background palette won't changes along with all the time periods, it always the dark night (dark blue palette). If I use the emulator to play it, the background palette will change along with the RTC that inside the computer. May I have a DAN system that the background palette will change along with the RTC which inside Emerald rom itself? Please help me to achieve it. Thanks a lot.

                              PS: Sorry for my poor English

                                  how can you find 0x3DO bytes? i can't do that with Free space finder.

                                  and when i apply them, nothing happens in the game.

                                    Nice! I installed the RTC in my hack, and it's pretty nifty!
                                    One question though... how do I access that "statusbyte" thingy that displays the time?
                                    I mean, it showed a statusbyte thingy offset but how do I display its status in the ROM?
                                    Please help.

                                    Nice, but there are a few things you might want to fix.
                                    - The Rom crashes upon entering a battle if you un-check "Use DAN in battles?".
                                    - No Palette editor for seasons?
                                    - DAN palette editor would be nice too.

                                    Something I think would be pretty cool is if you could load up a certain tileset and palette from the ROM, and edit the tiles/palettes for the seasons and DAN. You know, like you could have a tree full of leaves in Summer, and then it loses leaves when it gets to Autumn/Fall, is covered in Snow when it's Winter, and when it gets back to Spring all the leaves are back, with the addition of some cute little pink flowers.

                                        ok, it's fixed. More at the end of this post.

                                        @diegoisawesome
                                        Maybe a R/S/Em-RTC will be supported in another version, but i didn't have planed something like this.

                                        I didn't know Jambo's custom day-of-the-week setting routine but i can try to make such a Routine which shows the day of the week.

                                        @joshblevins
                                        In the left corner (at the bottom) will be a little buttom. If your ROM is supported you can erase the system (no warranty).

                                        @Crimson Stardust
                                        The RTC writes only some bytes in the RAM. If you didn't have any scripts which use the RTC, you can't see anything.

                                        @Halfshadow, r0bert, Crimson Stardust
                                        The season-system changes the tilesets. Therefor it uses an header. This header can be edited with the Season-Header-Editor.
                                        If you install the System it will only install a blank header.

                                        @Meta Paradox
                                        you can use the XSE and comparefarbytetobyte or ASM and something like this
                                        Code:
                                        [...]
                                        .equ Statusbyte, <here your Offset>
                                        [...]
                                        ldr r0, =Statusbyte
                                        ldrb r0, [r0]
                                        [...]
                                        @Fireworks
                                        If i make a "custom pal at time period"-script or something like this, it isn't a real DAN anymore. (imo)
                                        If you want such a thing, i can edit my season-system an let it change the tileset every few hours.

                                        @Joshuablevins
                                        Maybe the RTC is diseabled in your emulator...
                                        If you use VBA try Options->Emulator->Real Time Clock


                                        @DNS
                                        A new Version is released! It'll fix the battlebug, so you can now diseable the DAN-system in battles.

                                        If you have already an old version you can use the updatefunction. Otherwise you can download the tool with your browser. (h**p://memoryresources.de/DNS/DNS.zip)

                                        I mean so that it's possible to have Lampposts glow at night, as well as windows.

                                        Well, this isn't exactly what I meant.
                                        I meant that this new RTC does not have support for RSE's clock that you set at the beginning of the game. Usually, setting the clock only changes the default Emerald RTC, but it would be great if setting the clock in-game could make interdpth's RTC change as well.

                                        Also, the custom day-of-the-week routine is simply making it so that you can set the day of the week in-game. you could probably make the RTC read from a byte in memory and add or subtract the required value from the actual day-of-the-week byte in interdpth's RTC.

                                        If you want the routines to set the day of the week or any information about Emerald's clock setting from the beginning of the game, feel free to PM me.
