I still remember how much I liked this game. This is why I decided to make a fixed version of this hack which contains a whole Kanto Region. I know someone else tried to do the same thing, but all of them tried to change the original things in this hack. This makes me think I should make a fixed version in which all the creators' ideas are perfectly preserved. So, here it is. A faithfully fixed Pokemon Shiny Gold Beta5.
The following glitches are fixed:
A small cave in Ice Path is glitched.
The glitched border tiles of Route 2.
You can still enter Safari Zone even though you lost your Pokemon.

What you have is like a batteries-not-included version of the game. You need to apply the patch you downloaded onto a FireRed rom. See a tutorial such as this one- https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=333151

I've created an account here just to report a new bug.

In Slowpoke Well's B1F, you "can get a lot of" Rain Dance. Item pokeballs was replaced by NPC trainers, and one of two appears repeatedly; everytime player calls him, it returns a Rain Dance TM.

---------------------------------

Other thing that's not a bug, but... Is possible to fix volume sound from Zel's themes (Cherrygrove City and Lighthouse)? Are really louder than others used ingame.
The Slowpoke Well glitch is the only thing I can fix for now, so I have fixed that.

I don't know what to do to get past the ghosts on both sides of Cerulean City, as that is hindering my progress. So any help would be appreciated.
You have to finish the events in Sliph Co. and go back to Ecruteak City to find Morty in the Burned Tower first.

The following glitches are fixed:
A small cave in Ice Path is glitched.
The glitched border tiles of Route 2.
You can still enter Safari Zone even though you lost your Pokemon.
The following things are added by me:
Gold/Silver style Pewter City, Route 3, Mt. Moon, Vermilion City, Route 1, Pallet Town, Route 21, Cinnabar Island, Route 20, Route 19.
Trainer Tower, secret areas where you can catch Mewtwo, Rayquazza and Regirock after Red is defeated. (All these things are based on the creator's original map.)
Rival's events in Mt. Moon, Indigo Plateau and Dragon's Den.
Some screenshots:

Here's the download link:

A glitch which was found in Slowpoke Well was fixed. If the changes I have made cause any other glitches, please tell me, even though I believe it won't cause any other glitches since I didn't change too many things.
The old download link still works:

Two new bugs found:
— BERRY POUCH ever empty, even if you pick one from trees or gain it in National Park Contest;
— TM CASE turns only with HMs sometimes, it "fixes" when you buy or get a new TM/HM overworld.
I'm testing this hack slowly on my way commuting every day, and it never happened to me.
Would you mind telling us at what point did these glitches occur?

Again, is there a possibility to add PSS to this hack?
Sorry, but I wish to preserve the old feeling of this hack, so I never add new features or change what the creator had done to the hacks I have fixed.

In the previous patch, it was possible that you can fly to Pallet Town before you go there, I did something to have it fixed, but I'm not sure if this patch can completely fix this, if you have encountered this glitch, please tell me, thanks.
Edit: Jiangzhengwenjz made it possible to fly to Cherrygrove City, and he fixed the wrong flying positions in the game. And this update wouldn't be possible without Mastermind_X's tutorial, thank Mastermind_X for the helpful world map tutorial.

Can someone explain to me why the creator of Shiny Gold Sigma get shunned and banned from the site for “not getting Zel’s blessing” yet hacksrepairman does the same thing (and puts in about 1% of the work) and everyone worships him as a hero?
The main reason Shiny Gold Sigma got banned was because the creator was asking for donations. There was screenshot evidence as well. It's illegal to make money off ROM Hacks.
Track Number 2 of my debut Mixtape, Venting Session Vol.1:
What's it like - https://youtu.be/Qxs6shEpHIo
A lot of emotions, thought and a bit of nostalgia went into the making of this particular track on the Mixtape.

SGS author: claiming a modified ROM (which is mainly done by Game Freak and Zel 2.0) as a new hack with a new name, begging money for bug fix (and even with donation he still did poor work on this, sadly. It's mainly because Zel's ROM itself is never in a stable state and has too many bugs and one won't be able to solve these without solid ASM and debugging knowledge).

hacksrepairman: no credit needed, trying not to change too much done by Zel and focusing on bug fix to make old hacks actually playable, and his version is not even in the main post.

Discussion about legitimacy is probably non sense here, because ROM Hacking itself is done on top of Game Freak's work and is definitely illegal. However, asking for profit (what's worse: with massive other ppl's work) is usually considered ignominious for obvious reason. In a nutshell, ppl are expected to show respect to other ppl's work.

This. I couldn't agree more with what you've brought up here. I find it incomprehensible that someone could sympathize with the Shiny Gold Sigma creator on this, he and hackrepairman are on two opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to members of this community.

Hello hacksrepairman, just wanted to say thank you for finishing up a huge part of my early adolescence. I just wanted to make you aware of a couple minor things. They're not gamebreaking bugs just minor errors.

- A couple trainer's names (up til Violet City at least, that's where I'm at) are a lil messed up. Most have names with an exclamation point at the end, but two trainers are named "1/trainer1" and "2/trainer1" respectively
- The going up/down stairs animation is a lil iffy. Your character still walks over the stairs before it moves to the next area

Like I said, pretty minor, but wanted to grab your attention. Thanks again!

I am so happy that Shiny Gold, is actually complete. The fans have waited 12 Years. I am sure Zel, and Team would be extremely happy. Thanks HacksRepairMan + Helpers.
Also I am happy that it is a, Fully Completed GSC Remake on Gen 3, with very minor; smart changes! This is the most pure, actually completed remake, that exists! Job well done!
All the Pokemon Regions are Awesome!

Probably late to the party but repairman you're an absolute legend. This is the first hack I played way back in 2008-2009, and to see that it's completed is gonna make me play it again.
Forza Borussia Dortmund!

Quick note, I ended up losing the IPS files for ALL my hacks in the Sideshow Showcase, I ended up factory resetting my PC before making backups. Since you can't download them because the downloads are broken, and I no longer have access to them, well, you can figure out the rest -.-

I agree. I played Sigma and even without the scandal it didn't seem as nostalgic, or at least didn't seem the same.

What? "Shiny Gold" is literally right in the title of "Shiny Gold Sigma", he's never once tried to claim it wasn't an edited version of Shiny Gold.

I just find it so dumb that the SGS creator gets so much crap just because he "has the nerve" to actually finish a hack as opposed to abandoning it like everybody else in this community.

He can't even hack properly himself, he pays others to do it for him (source: https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=9853763#post9853763). Which results in a buggy and disjointed hack once you get to the parts he added.

Of course, finishing a hack is not the part that bugs people, but the fact that he asks for donations and takes stuff without permission. Asking for donations and taking stuff from others without permission is against the fundamentals of this community. If everyone would do that, barely no one would have been able to make anything sufficient.

bro, have you played even played SGS, that abomination? I rarely indiscriminate other hacks because I know the creators have put in a lot of effort and hard work, but SGS is the complete opposite. Hacking SGS for a guy who DEMANDS DONATIONS FOR PROGRESS is more than insulting the rom hacking community. But let's not talk about that, let's focus on the actual game itself.

First off, it sucks. Here's why; the TM lists are worse than the original GSC ones (who tf seriously considers Sweet Scent or Vine Whip useful?) None of the newer mons have cries, and it's worse that all of them up till gen 7 are jammed into one single game that obviously doesn't need it.

It also adds another region, which is VERY highly unnecessary. The edits he made to Johto are already unbearable and you expect me to go through Hoenn and Orange Island, when I already gave up trying Kanto? Huh, what's the story here? Furthermore, all the characters added as bonuses are what you call: retarded-decision making. They're just there for the sake of being there but hey, money's the priority.

Overall, SGS is the embodiment of quantity over quality, and it muks on the masterpiece remake that Shiny Gold aims for. Comparing hacksrepairman to SGS' creator isn't any better, it just shows that you can't judge people.

Oh yeah, I once gave feedback on the countless problems SGS has. I ended up getting banned from their FaceBook. Then again, what else did I expect from a group which slogan is "Donate to see more. "

It's not a donation anymore; it's a payment for a ripoff. That's no less evil than pirating the game itself.

to be fair i don't mind shiny gold sigma but i agree the donation part of the hack is stupid. and now that i've read about it i'm a little upset about SGS as well. i think asking for donations for a game is asking for it to get taking down. i'll still play SGS but i don't like the creator and his abomination of asking for donations. honestly rom hacks are to me an art. and don't have to be completed but demanding for money for a hack to be completed is ABSOLUTELY WRONG. i like SGS as a game but the creator is a disgrace for asking for money. he should just go get a job or something.
Rom hacks i support: Pokemon Adventure Red Chapter, Pokemon Gaia, Pokemon Firered Rocket Edition, Pokemon Orange, Pokemon Unbound, Pokemon Masterquest, Pokemon Saffron Version, Pokemon Dark energy

Hacks I have beta tested: Pokemon Masterquest, Pokemon Saffron.

beta tester for: Pokemon Saffron version. Pokemon Chroma Version

i decided since my beta testing is slow to just try beta testing 3 rom hacks. as i'm currently doing 2 at the moment i figure i could pick up a 3rd one to beta test. PM me or leave a visitor message and i will more than likely help beta test your Rom hack.

Can't believe I'm about to ask this considering I made my views against that poor excuse of a hack before but...how are the new reigons exactly? Does Hoenn in particular have the entire region to explore or just limited parts of it? Are there even actual stories or any sort of content you go through in those reigons?

Just curious is all, because I don't feel like wasting my time to play the entire hack to find out myself.

Last time I played it was early 2019 and Hoenn was only Slateport and the routes up to Mauville. Mauville was a glitchy mess, but the creator said Hoenn was unfinished, so it was expected. Orange Islands are finished, but it's very simple to progress through it because a lot of buildings are locked and are just for show and there's barely any NPCs. The hack should've just stopped at Johto and Kanto, after that it just gets more bare and empty.

I don't regret playing it, but I'm not interested in playing it again.
