    One can thus expect a bug fix to the game crashing on My OldBoy emulator in a reasonable time. The reason I'm not releasing this bug fix yet is because even though I have confirmed the game to actually run properly using it, there might be other oddities playing with My OldBoy I'm not aware of. BloodlessNS (creator of a certain other neat hack on top of pokecrystal) will however test this bug fix, and if the game seems to be working with it as expected, I'll then release that bug fix in public.

    In short, there will be a bug fix for My OldBoy crashing coming up. I won't be releasing any other new features yet though, but there has been some work on top of Beta 5.00 done already. Those features will have to wait for another release which might come later in the Spring / at Summer.

    Sorry I missed the message where it is reported.
    Thanks for the hack very nice!

      Hello Miksy! This is amazing hack and I'm your fan, really great job! Btw, think I'm stuck, have 3 elemental orbs (deep, ice, north) 5 sidequests ( onix, sages, bird trio, adria, abandoned r.c.) is there any trick should be done in rocky mountain? I read the old writing, saw the girl, found some items.. Is fourth orb obtainable? And it's possible to found the keys to the harbour?
      Cheers!

        Hi,
        Glad to hear you have liked it! Unfortunately you're pretty much at the end of the current beta. At this point if you return to mystery woods (related to "wood" as mentioned by the archaelogists), the game tells you this as well.

        You can keep working on the remaining sidequests if you like, but that's pretty much all you can do at this point. Fourth Elemental Orb cannot be acquired in beta 5, and you can't get HM Waterfall either which is required for progressing forward in Rocky Mountain. If you use "walk through walls" cheat, you can access another room, but that won't take you any further in the mountain yet either.

        The harbour area is also something that will be accessible in the next release (yet I have partially scripted the events there as well :laugh-squinted: ). There will be some funny stuff going on there. If someone wants to take a look with JohtoMap and pksv, what might happen there, be my quest.

          Greetings
          It would seem now that I just finished reading through all 48 pages and made an account I can not figure out what I wish to say, which seems amusing to me. Anyway, I am fairly unfamiliar with even the idea of .rom hacks and only just found out that there are a great many pokemon hacks available. I actually came to this site because I saw a few hacks for sale on eBay, including Dark Energy and a number of other hacks from you and many others in cartridge form, and I was curious to see what they were like before I actually tried to buy them, which led me to a site that was hosting a version of Dark Energy, and while playing that I eventually ended up here.

          Is there a site that is hosting the most current beta? Because the one I was just on only had up to 4.1. I guess I could at least play through that one for now, though I am fully aware that there are a number of changes between it and 5.00, that the save states are not fully compatible and that the differences would make starting over highly advisable.
          It does seem like an interesting game. There are a number of people who seem to love this game and find it to be great, in every beta. As of yet, I cannot completely say much about it, because I haven't played much of it yet, and I have not yet played the most current available version. I do like the Silver graphics, with the upgraded sprites. And it is fun playing a character that looks like Gary, and interesting to have others with you.
          When I first started I was still in basic have to catch them all mode and filled up my party quickly with Caterpie, Weedle (they may not be the strongest in the world, but they are fairly decent pokemon, I think my brother kept his Beedrill with him even up to the Elite Four in Red/Yellow), Rattata, and Pidgey along with the Bulbasaur you get from beating Beauty and of course our Eevee, though it has been a while since I have had to work with low-level pokemon and how much babying they need those first few levels before they can gain decent exp on their own (yes I do know about the battle simulator, you did a decent job mentioning about it, and I like the fact that I don't have to heal pokemon in between each round).
          I think that for a new playthrough I will worry less about catching every pokemon I see though, especially the level 2-3 pokemon seems how this is not a game with the emphasis on catching all the pokemon or even really beating the gyms.
          I still haven't decided on a team, but will probably start with Eevee, and Bulbasaur, and get a Magikarp and Magby from the bp, just to get started on training that Magikarp, assuming I still decide to play the hack.
          I like having the running shoes in the game, (sort of funny too, as I was just thinking I would like to move a little faster but as it was a silver hack, which was before the running shoes were implemented I didn't really expect to see them, and then there they were!).

          I do have to say though that I am not impressed by the English in the game. While it is nothing so drastic as to severely impede gameplay it does detract from my attraction to the game. I do realize you are not a native English speaker, and it may be possible that those working with you to proofread are not native English speakers, or may not use American English. (Of course even amongst native speakers there are some drastic differences in the way we speak or words we use as such.)
          I guess I could offer to help, (yes, I am a native English speaker, American English at that, though not sure that is much to brag about, haha) but I believe you did say you had one person and didn't see any need for others (all things considered it is very easy for one person or even many people to overlook some errors even with multiple readthroughs, and there is the degree of competence to be considered) and as I recall you did mention that it was not so easy a matter as copying and pasting in different text so you didn't want to worry too much about changes in the English.
          As far as the selling of the game cartridges on eBay goes, if they had been in some way connected to you (which I currently don't think is) I may have considered to buy it in order to support you. But as that is likely an incomplete and now outdated version, then I will forgo the idea of buying it.

          The game does seem cool so far, I will see about playing more of it.

          And I apologize, that turned into a really long post.

            I'm hosting the hack as in IPS patch file. You can't run the IPS patch directly via an emulator, but what you can do is to "patch" it over a Pokemon Silver rom file. What "patching" does is to change all kinds of data in the rom file so that that Pokemon Silver rom actually turns into Dark Energy Beta 5 rom file.

            See this tutorial, and download Lunar IPS in order to do that manual patching they refer to:

            Good to hear you have had fun with the hack so far :)

            In case you're interested, implementation of Running Shoes for G/S/C was discovered a long time ago. My implementation in DE would for example be derived from Koolboyman's initial implementation for Prism from 2010:

            I can imagine the English of beta 4.1 is definitely a turn off for some players. For beta 5, I spent a little bit of time trying to correct such text errors that I was aware of there being myself. My English has gotten a bit better since I started this hack. I'm also pretty sure I didn't pay that much attention to the grammar back when I started, and thus the grammar in the beginning of the hack is worse than in late game.

            Also, BlueEmerald did help with grammar back in the day, but I haven't heard of him in a few years.

            If you want to help, I can surely take spend some time handling some grammar errors. If it seems there are lots and lots of minor errors out there, I can't promise I want to spend time taking care of them. The biggest issue correcting grammar errors is that it's, more or less, most convenient to fix them with a hex editor that isn't that suitable for text editing. Thus it takes a lot of time to fix the errors, and I would much rather spend that time working on new features, or developing the hack further.

            But yeah.. if you want to help, you could first of all download beta 5.00 (because it doesn't make sense to play with outdated beta 4.1). Beta 5.00 has also some (or maybe most?) of those grammar errors of beta 4.1 already corrected. I'm satisfied with beta 5.00 grammar myself, and you can expect the text of that one to be comparable with what I'm writing here just now (in terms of grammar). Naturally the text there isn't perfect either (and I'm pretty sure my previous sentence was incorrect in one way or another as well, but I'm mostly content with it).

            I'm aware of them selling my hack, and don't really mind it :)
            I would assume most buyers to be aware of the concept of rom hacks, but some definitely aren't (like you were for instance).

            And don't worry - it wasn't that long a post.

              Was finally thinking of going forward and downloading all the required stuff to play the current beta, but of course, my antivirus does not like with the silver rom or the hack. Ha ha. I don't suppose you have a copy of all the text in the game for editing purposes?

                Nope. But if you join Dark Energy server in Discord (or simply find me there), you can contact me there.

                I have ini-files for a tool called Poketext which can load text data from various parts of the rom file. Those ini-files should cover way over 95% of the in-game text. With Poketext and the ini-files, you could thus view the in-game text. Also I should be able to get you the hack to play via some means as well.

                But yeah... fixing grammar is not my top priority thing to do, but if there is bad grammar out there (and by bad I mean worse than just the order of words in a sentence being incorrect, or there being similar minor issues out there), I can naturally handle that once I know what to change and how.
