    Defeating Cosmogs in the wild and causing them to faint crashes the game. Is something wrong with the cries?

      (Run the cmd.exe in the main folder.
      You can do this by typing 'cmd' and hitting enter in the url address or selecting 'run command prompt from here' from right clciking on empty space while holding the shift key

        I followed the steps in the opening post and it created the rom, then I created the separate ini file. When I try opening it in PGE the new moves are coming out as random characters and crash it if I click the attack. Any idea what I may have done wrong?

          did you move the .ini file and the rom file to the same PGE folder?

            I did and I still get the same error as the last guy about junk text instead of regular expanded data.

              Thanks so much for this! :chu:

              Also, I don't know if this has been mentioned before but after opening the generated ROM in PGE (with the updated .ini), the last few abilities' names in the Ability Editor seem to be cut-off.

              This was tested on a clean ROM.

                The problem with simply releasing a patch is that this battle engine is meant to be "dynamic", and can be applied to clean or hacked roms in the free location of your choosing. A patch would simply put in a static location, effectively limiting its use more or less only to clean roms. That isn't what the creators intended with their project.

                In addition, the engine has several options that some may want on but others would not. Max possible EVs for Pokemon, max possible level, allowing or disabling wild double battles and the gen6 style of exp share are some of the options. It's all about customization and choosing just what features you want in your hack and what you don't. Release a patch with these options auto enabled/disabled and watch people complain about them.

                I'd never used Python before either like many in this topic, but after reading through it and the other topics for the poke expansion and item expansions, I was able to apply all 3 of them only after a few tries, and the failed attempts were due to mistakes on my part.

                  Hey guys :smile:
                  I have practically no programming knowledge and maybe shouldn't even try this but I used to have so much fun using MrDollSteak's rom base making a Firered hack, that i wanted to try this one too because it looks really amazing!
                  But I seem to be too stupid to even apply this to a clean rom.
                  I followed the instructions and i checked the designated offset of test.gba and there was code written to it but when i start a new game and catch a Ralts it has no Fairy typing. The movesets seem to be updated though.
                  I also get errors when i open the rom with PGE but i wouldn't be surprised if i screwed up creating the .ini as well when i can't the engine to work in the first place. :frown:

                  I didn't change the options in the make.py except for the name to match the one of my clean EMERBPEE01 rom.
                  I'm sorry if this is insufficient information to help but I have no idea what else i could have messed up.

                    Pokemon that became Fairy or part Fairy appear not to get their typing updated to modern gens, so Ralts and family are still pure Psychic types. As far as I can tell from a quick glance, it looks like this applies to any other Pokemon who should have gained the Fairy typing as well. It's easy enough to use PGE to fix their types.

                      I feel so dumb now :pink_blush: Thank you!
                      The PGE problem also got solved by redownloading the newest version.
                      I knew it had to be silly mistakes on my part because the instructions were easy to follow.
                      Thanks for the engine, I'm sure I'll have lots of fun with it and it's future releases. :boogie:

                        I believe to have found a bug:
                        In Wild Doubles, if you use Volt Switch and have no Pokemon to switch into, your Pokemon becomes simply untargetable and unable to perform any action as if it was called back for the remaining battle.
                        And when Volt Switch or U-Turn finish off the opposing last Pokemon, you shouldn't get to switch anymore. At least that's how the original games handle it.
                        Sorry for not using GitHub but I'm not registered.

                          I have literally no knowledge in programming. I've downloaded the necessary things but when I click the make.py it says "windows can't open this file". What program do I still need?

                              Presumably you're missing Python, or haven't associated it with .py files. From the first post:

                              - Download the latest version of python(3.4, 3.5 or 3.6 should be good).
                              After downloading and before proceeding to install make sure that the 'add to path' checkbox is ticked, otherwise you'll have to add the python path in the environment variables manually.
