Good day/evening. I was hoping you could assist me. I seem to be unable to get your hack working. I have downloaded the rebalanced version of Moon, but when I launch the game (using Citra) all I get is a black screen. The "speed" briefly goes to 9% then ends up at 0% with no activity. I followed all the steps in the hack guide without issue; I even did it a few times to be safe. I also checked the original ROM and it's working. I am kinda stumped on how to solve this :/
So either I am doing something wrong, or the files you have uploaded are somehow corrupt.. Or some obscure third reason? I honestly don't know

Thanks! I'm just happy the community likes these hacks enough to give me all this great feedback. The update might be a little delayed as the power supply on my PC just died, but that will be sorted tomorrow (as long as that's the only problem with it).
As long as you can "hack" a national dex in the future Sword and Shield versions, then no problem in delaying this haha.....haha....ha....ah men the franchise is living a truly very sad moment. I'll stick with Eternal X, Rising Ruby and Prismatic Moon for a very long time in the meantime, so I can negate the reality, but damn what a disgrace. So thanks for allowing me deny the reality haha

Hi, that means you can only find Greninja as an ally Pokemon called in an SOS battle while it's raining.

Hey, I'll be updating these hacks soon (hopefully in the next 48 hours), so I'll make sure the files aren't corrupt at the same time. Until then you could try unpacking a clean update file with the hacking toolkit, rebuilding it without modifying any files, then installing it in citra to see if the original ROM still works with the update installed. If it doesn't the issue is your version of hacking toolkit; it's very unreliable and only certain versions work for some people. If that doesn't fix the issue we can try something else once the hack is updated.

If only haha. I'll try to get the update done tomorrow, got everything working again today. From memory they'll include:
  • Better level up moves for Tropius and fairy types
  • Better everything for Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff
  • Dark Pulse for Greninja by level up
  • Solid Rock for Torterra
I think that's everything I was supposed to add. Also open to other suggestions!

I tried the original unhacked ROM with the hacked 1.2 update (didn't know how to unselect an update) and while I am fairly sure that would have caused problems in the game, it still managed to boot, which kinda rules out the CIA update as the culprit

Edit: Alright so now I tried properly removing the 1.2 CIA update. Same result: the original ROM boots, the hacked ROM does not. Your proposal gave me an idea, and I tried to decrypt the original ROM and then immediately repack it again without altering any files, and it turns out as a 2GB rom instead of the 4GB original. Since I didn't alter any files I am kinda stumped on where the other 2GB went. Obviously it will not boot, claiming a fatal error (so not the same issue as the hacked ROM that doesn't give any errors and is the correct 4GB size). I don't know if this is normal or maybe I have a corrupt version of the 3ds toolkit. Please advice :)

2nd Edit: I played around with my 1.2 CIA Update files. Turns out the original unhacked CIA supports a wrong region; Citra will remove the icon of the ROM (the original unhacked one in this case) and claim invalid region. Despite this it still boots (and I presume will also work during gameplay).
Ironically, the hacked CIA update based on the same file does not complain about any regional conflicts. It still boots, even with the unhacked ROM, but I don't know if this could cause some issues?

3rd Edit:
So to recap:
  • My original ROM is the correct size of 4.294GB. It boots with or without the 1.2 Update.
  • The hacked ROM is the exact same size but won't boot. Does not provide any errors, just gets stuck on a black screen when trying to boot with or without the 1.2 update
  • My original 1.2 CIA update claims regional conflicts with the ROM, yet still boots and presumably also works during gameplay
  • The hacked 1.2 CIA update does not claim regional conflicts despite being based on the same file as the original; still boots with the unhacked ROM. No difference on the hacked ROM
  • Extracting and immediately rebuilding the original ROM without altering any files leaves it as a corrupt ROM of a peculiar 2 GB size. Gives a fatal error when trying to boot.
  • Sidenote: I had to use the v10 hacking toolkit to make my update as the v9 didn't work. Seemingly no issues with the CIA hacking; everything points to the ROM hacking being the culprit

If you have the Google Play Store available, try an app called Datadex. It's really intuitive, and it's what I use for a replacement to an in-game NatDex. It's got a pro version for no ads and dark screen mode, but it's still great and easy to use with the free version.

Thanks, man, for all information. You're a very nice guy.

I found a kind of "poké bank", the name is "PKSM". Do you know that?

Long time since I've been here, nice to see you still doing mods! Quick question, now that i've finally gotten round to playing this on Citra lol.

Am I being completely stupid or blind...but where do you find Geodude? I checked your wild pokemon list and special encounter list and...nothing :s. Did you forget to include it? Or just forget to add this pokemon to the document? I think that's the only one missing.

Loving the hack so far btw, not really sure what i could suggest for features, I know pokemon star mod does some really interesting things and also some really ludicrous things haha but either way, this is looking and playing good so far! Maybe a fewwwww too many encounters inside caves? Took me an absolute age getting through ten carat hill lol without repels!
