      Yeah, you read that right. The old and buggy Ruins of Alph puzzles from the first beta of CrystalDust are back, and this time, they don't break everything when used.

      On top of that, the braille on the walls of the chambers has finally been replaced with proper Unown text like they were supposed to be this whole time!

      Some small bugs were also fixed with this update:
      • Using the Escape Rope inside of the first cavern shows the proper earthquake animation upon reentering.
      • Other miscellaneous things.
      As always, you can download this update at the link in the first post!
      I love how you added a FR/LG-style header thingy on the Ruins of Alph puzzle. It makes it look a lot more official.

      Also, may I ask why you have frequent mini-updates rather than infrequent large updates? This isn't a criticism, I'm genuinely curious.

      EDIT: Also about the Johto/Kanto tree thing when you said that you didn't want to initially use the first ones of mine that I posted, I recall there was a newer one that I posted over at RHO that you said you would use, but because that was in a chatroom you might have lost it. Here is a newer one, just in case:

      If you don't like it, tell me what's wrong with it, because at this point it seems like I'm the only person whose willing to make proper Johto trees for you, and this is something that I really want to see done in a G/S/C remake (actually recognizing that in G/S/C, Johto and Kanto had completely different visual tilesets).

        I love how you kept pretty much the same general overworld tileset as FR/LG as well.

              Hi. Nothing special. I just caught Sudowoodo, obtained Rock smash, battled the trainers on the way to Ecruteak and then went to the Pokemon Center. After that, I went to the gym, expecting to have the "you can't enter here" message, but it didn't happen. And then I went to the Burned tower, and Silver was speechless as well.

                Also, may I ask why you have frequent mini-updates rather than infrequent large updates? This isn't a criticism, I'm genuinely curious. Because I'm really trying to work on Shining Opal, but CrystalDust keeps pulling me back in for random things. Also, these mini-updates let me release bugfixes without introducing new ones by way of also introducing new content at the same time.

                EDIT: Also about the Johto/Kanto tree thing when you said that you didn't want to initially use the first ones of mine that I posted, I recall there was a newer one that I posted over at RHO that you said you would use, but because that was in a chatroom you might have lost it.

Inserted, but I'm not too adamant on the way they look right now.

                Thanks, but as you can see above, the trees are now going to be changed!

                Simple: the way you would hack the music of any other Pokémon game this generation.

                No...? That was added a long time ago, with the GB Player update. You only get the call if you didn't get the GB Player before that, though, so that might be why you didn't notice it.

                If you have a save file from just before that happened, I'd love to see it. Send it in a PM.

                Great! Thanks for bugtesting again!

                And now, for a very minor update that has a big effect on visuals:
                Small Vanity Update - 12/15/2013





                Nothing much new in this update, except for a few graphical changes:
                • The title screen now uses a better font! Thanks to FredrIQ for finding it for me.
                • The trees around Johto are now the trees provided by Chaos Rush! (screenshots will be updated soon)
                • Kris has a new sprite, obtained by MrAPT1!
                As usual, the link's in the first post!

                  Also, today I'm putting out a tiny bugfix patch for yesterday's update. It fixes the new girl sprite's palette as well as a random tile error I found. Same download link as usual.

                  Indeed, as far as scripting and under-the-hood coding go, this hack is fantastic.

                    About the new trees, I see what you mean in that they aren't the highest quality (the 'sections' aren't even). Admittedly, it was rushed. I will make a new tree (or a couple new ones) and make sure they fit in with the FR/LG art style as good as I can, and I will take my time on them. It's nice to see the FR/LG trees retained at Indigo Plateau, I will say :)

                      The better logo for CRYSTALDUST in the intro and the new sprite look fantastic! However i'm unsatisfied with the overworlds specifically of Gold, Silver, Kris, and Morty. If i may suggest, maybe you can make them more fr/lg-esque as well sometime? (i seem to notice morty's head looks a bit off); as well as change the spinning icon of the pokegear? and maybe change the sound when someone calls?

                      To suggest, maybe you can use the gold sprite in MrApt's video?
                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUa914UEKDg&list=PL4DEDD6B9CCF1D6C9

                      I'm excited to hear about the Sevii islands quest, just a suggestion tho, maybe you can incorporate the hoenn pokemon there (similar to how fr/lg incorporated johto in its sevii islands).

                      Other than that, i like mostly everything that you've done for this, props to shinyquagsire and the spriters. Notably the bags, the day-night system, the revamped crystal intro, the ruins of alph, and I expect to see more of kanto and the sidequest. I apologize if i haven't reported any bugs, i only started playing this new patch. :)

                          Don't really mind, I think they fit really well in the FR/LG tileset.

                          I wish more people did like you and regularly posted small update patches instead of holding out and only releasing big patches.

                              Hmmm. Seems very weird to me. I remember when I started the game, I was in New Bark Town, the town where I should be at the start of the game.

                                I just started playing this hack, and so far, it looks great to me! However, there are some bugs with the PokeGear.

                                First, it's Youngster Joey. When I called him, he will sometimes say, "It's me, the mountain-loving JOEY! Well, since we met, have you grown to appreciate the mountains more? I rarely see you in the mountains... Next time, we'll meet somewhere in UNION CAVE." And the PokeGear states that Joey is in Union Cave.

                                Then, I registered Bug Catcher Wade inside my PokeGear, but his entry is not found in the PokeGear.

                                  no, that's the right patch
                                  that happen to me too :D
                                  it happen in every stair that you access
                                  you will teleport into semewhere else
                                  it happen if you play on phone (i'm using vbag)
                                  but if you play in pc its working fine

                                    Why doesn't the new "New Bark Town" theme playing? I saw on the update that it changed but it still plays the old theme!

                                      Did you applied the new patch? I applied the new patch and the new New Bark Town theme plays as it should be.

                                        Yes, I just downloaded the patch and used Lunarips to my CrystalDust version that is outdated. Or I should patch it with a clean Emerald ROM?

                                          Ahh, I guess that's why. You should always apply new patches to a clean Emerald ROM, to ensure that things worked correctly.

                                            Better trees. I could tone down the detail just a bit if you want (or you're feeling confident sprite-wise you could do it yourself, since I know you can sprite a little). Sorry for looking at your tileset data, just trying to make things more convenient for you.
