I guess we can try to back after every event and see if it will happen.
I guess we'll have to do that.
Do you remember, at least, what you had completed?
It wasn't until I actually played this myself that I realized how eerily well the graphics/palettes/etc evoked the genuine GSC "feel" while walking about. Honestly, bravo.
Thanks! It's true, the FireRed graphics do suit it.

Some ridiculous nitpicks:
- Aww, no animated staircase (for instance, in the hero's house)!
- Also, Youngster Joey battles you before the roadblock on Route 30 is cleared.
- DUDE's Hoppip has 40/35 Tackles. ;)

...Also noticed the [very] clever inclusion of your number in the Pokegear as a repairman. Slick. :P

I will always be proud to support zel and Shiny Gold.

I think I figured out what is causing the glitch.

I tried all kinds of ways to activate the glitch but this is the only way that works.
Oh, and if you are interested I think LaZ is releasing LC Beta 3 on thepkmnworld forums.

Emerald's engine has no way to do that, so...
- Also, Youngster Joey battles you before the roadblock on Route 30 is cleared.
Fixed.
- DUDE's Hoppip has 40/35 Tackles. ;)
Fixed.

Thanks! I didn't know what else to put in for Mr. Stone.. :P

Ahh. The infamous Ruins of Alph. I had to remove them as they were screwing everything up, so download the new patch now!!!

Please don't advertise other hacks and other forums, please.
Ah, no initial potion in the PC. XD
Same as in Crystal, remember.

To think even today ShinyGold is one of the biggest influences in the hacking community. This hack looks very professional, but I just have one tip, try to explore the Johto region more. Use HG and SS as an example, they changed the maps a little, added some more places, I think this hack would benefit if you did that too.

Well, I might do that after I finish the original part of the game, but, like I said above somewhere, I like my Johto pretty much vanilla.
EDIT: Small update; Ultra Ball now displays correct text.

What I meant about the shrine is that when you face it, you only face either
the right or left front side and it doesn't look good that way. It would be better if
you can face the center. It would be cool because then your game will have
that difference from every other remake.

Instead of just complaining about how the world map doesn't look good all cramped like that, I come offering a solution. A while ago, I was messing around with some of the world map routines in Emerald and I managed to do this. When you finish with Johto and begin working on Kanto, let me know and maybe we can work out a deal. ;)

Ohh yeah. My bad. Wow, what an embarrassment. What did you mean by "removing" the Ruins of Alph? :-o Just taking out the puzzle and quest stuff for now?

And when you say "fixed," do you mean the o15 download is updated [practically] on the spot?

When I first commented on the map and how it looked bad that it was all cramped together, I had forgotten that Diego was using Emerald. But with this cool thing that you did, now it's possible to have a good looking map.

Check the latest patch. ;)

Sweet!
That's a really handy bit of ASM work there.
And, since I like getting everything done as early as possible in development, maybe we can figure something out now. PM me. :)
nice hack, but I did'nd like the hero overworld.
Okay then.

By "removing" the RoA, that means that the puzzle has now been replaced with, "Would you like to solve the puzzle?" Y/N
And by "fixed", yes, that means that I update it "on the spot". :D
by any chance are you including the kanto starters in later on in the game?
Maybe... Not very likely, though.
Very minor bug, but protagonist gets weird colors when fishing, otherwise great hack! :D
Yeah, I know. Sadly, the sprite pack I got didn't come with those sprites...

Yeah, that rocks.
Also, by saying that you'd forgotten that this was Emerald, that must mean that I've done a good job of porting over FireRed graphics. :D

From the looks of it, this could potentially be one of my favourite ROM hacks of all time; up there with Pokemon Prism. ;) The amount of effort and how it looks like it will have all of the features of Pokemon Crystal are amazing, in my opinion. I have some questions:
  • Will you be able to decorate your room? I haven't really played the ROM much so I haven't checked. Additionally, will the decorations from Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal be in it? e.g.: the game consoles, the beds, the plants.
  • I'm wondering how Buena's Password is going to be done, assuming it is in it. XD
  • Will it just be the Battle Tower, or will there be the Battle Frontier. This also leads on to my next point...
  • What about features from Pokemon Emerald like the Pokemon Contests? Will they get ditched completely, or will they be in Crystal Dust in some fom? Just wondering because I kinda liked Contests. XD

I might get round to playing the Beta fully later. :) Can't wait until it's finished, and good luck. :D

Wow, the shrine is fixed! Your'e like the first person to ever listen to my advice. Other dudes just say if I don't like it I don't need to play their game.
Well, I tried your suggestion, and it DID look better.
If I think it can improve my hack, I'll add it in. ;)
Part of my awesome customer service.
i tried this hack yesterday ^^
it's very nice and bring the memories back...
BTW i'm new here, hello to everyone :D
Thanks for the comment, and welcome to PokéCommunity! :D

Additionally, will the decorations from Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal be in it? e.g.: the game consoles, the beds, the plants. I'll try, but that'll probably be added in after the Johto/Kanto part is completed.
  • I'm wondering how Buena's Password is going to be done, assuming it is in it. XD Well, the radio is planned for later, and, well, Buena's Password will come with it, obviously.
  • Will it just be the Battle Tower, or will there be the Battle Frontier. This also leads on to my next point... There might just be the Battle Tower in Johto, but Sevii will most likely host the rest.
  • What about features from Pokemon Emerald like the Pokemon Contests? Will they get ditched completely, or will they be in Crystal Dust in some fom? Just wondering because I kinda liked Contests. XD Again, Sevii will probably be a host to those kinds of things. My Johto will be pretty much the same as in G/S/C, although the new features will come in the Islands ;)

I might get round to playing the Beta fully later. :) Can't wait until it's finished, and good luck. :D
My responses to your questions are in bold.
Thanks for supporting CrystalDust! :D

This hack looks cool. I'm most likely gonna try it out, even though i'm tired of playing the endless amounts of GSC Rmk's
Okay, nice to see you'll try out mine.
Is the game has day/night system?
or it just me who miss the night lol.....
Yes, the game has a D/N system. If you can't see it, either you have it turned off in VBA or your platform doesn't support it... or maybe something else.
