      This is such a great resource, I love everything about it. I almost want to do the same for GBA hahaha.
      Great job on this! I'll definitely test it out and mess around with it.

            I installed all the fonts in the folder manually, every single one, and it's still not showing up in game.

              Now I want to work on a Gen II game. :(

                I've confirmed the issue with the text - it's the computer's region locale settings. My computer is in Native Japanese Locale (for several reasons), and it didn't show up. I had three other people test - two of them had Jap Locale, one didn't. Both the ones with Jap Locale reported the same issues, the one who was in native English locale had no issues.

                    Very well done! Also, will there be any updates to fix where the Pokemon's name is cut off in the battle scene? Thanks!

                      This is amazing! I'm working on a Gen.II styled game right now and I've spent most of the time working on getting it to look/sound the part, and I'm thinking I should just scrap it and use this as a base instead. Looks great!

                        Error when encountering a wild Pokémon in the Safari Zone:

                        Script 'PokeBattle_ActualScene' line 748: NoMethodError occured.
                        undefined method 'isMega?' for #<PokéBattle_FakeBattler:0x8708860>

                        I'm very happy with this kit since one of my oldest fangame ideas would involve the Gen 2 mechanics, looks and devamps of Pokémon Gen 3 onwards. I like the Gen 3 graphics too, but I prefer Gen 2 since making items is much simpler and easier without having a extra icon for every item in the bag.

                          This is great work Comboy, I love it! I know it's not usually part of the "Essentials" experience, but I simply had to add the GSC chiptune soundtrack for maximum nostalgia overload. I've uploaded it here if anyone else wants the complete Game Boy Colour experience

                              Was planning on doing a gen II game in the future, this'll be great. Great work!

I hope it encourages people to make more GSC games. My only suggestion would be to try and port this to Essentials version 15.1 to take advantage of bug fixes and new content

                                  Looking forward to seeing what people make with it!

                                  Another suggestion after poking around the kit: your ripped sound effects are 1411kbps. You really don't need to go beyond 256kbps as it doesn't really make a difference in the quality and results in bigger file sizes.
                                  I started this engine when v13 was still new, but I'm planning to port it to v15.1, or to any post version depending if there's gonna be an update soon.

                                  And about the sound effects, so yeah... that explains me why the Audio folder was so heavy, he he he! I'll fix that next update!

                                  Screenshot, please?

                                  That error was in the original v13 of Essentials too, and the National Park contest had another bug that doesn't let you use the Park Balls, I hope those to be fixed in next version.

                                  By the way, you were in the credits of Essentials GS since the beggining. Thank you so much for your scripts and support!

                                    Comboy, I hope you don't mind that I adjusted some parts of the 'PokemonPokedex' script. I've adjusted the list to show its name, number, and capture status, fitting all names up to 10 characters (though understandably squishing 11 and up like Fletchinder).
                                    Unfortunately, I can't get a transparent green overlay to cover the Pokemon in the list like in GSC, could I possibly get some help with adding that?
                                    I'm still working through the rest of the Dex's functions to get it to behave more like it's rom counterpart.

                                    If you haven't adjusted the script already, I was wondering if you would like to use it? I can update this post with it if you like, or PM you.

                                      Amazing job! Can you do the same for the Bag menu? I mean, Boy and Girl own backgrounds for example.
                                      And yes, the green overlay would give it a nice GSC touch. Welcome to the staff!

                                            I just tested this with Double Battle. The 2nd trainer in double battle their pokeball isn't visible and only the first trainer shown the icon and I assume tis a mishaps.

                                              Voilà!

                                              ...Getting the item list in each pocket to look they do here is proving to be a pain. Any advice?

                                              I'm willing to lend a hand with anything else if you like.
                                              I was thinking in someway removing the moves names from the TM/HM item list, so the letters and numbers won't look so stuck in there, but maybe that could be something problematic for some players. I know the Dex list and the Items list work different in their own scripts, so......

                                              FL? heeeelp....

                                              That's weird, because each Poké Ball launches one at a time, so maybe you see them as one, any screenshot?

                                                What wrong is the pokeball icon where opposing trainer's pokemon sprite shown up
                                                [o] [o] [o] [o] [o] [o] <---- Since there's 1 trainer, the pokeball sprite appear on ball icon, the next one doesn't show

                                                  getDisplayName from class PokemonMartAdapter that displays the TM number and name. There 2 occurrences at PokémonBag, the first is for bag and the second is for PC. I suggest you leaving only the name (or even the first letters), since this is waaaay better for players browse.
