    Man, I remember when Beta 2 first came out, I was still in middle school. Now I'm going into college, and still playing through it. Crazy that I'm more pumped for a Pokemon hack to update moreso than I am for entire games to come out

      Same here. I've been silently watching this topic from the very start, since... 2010? I'd like to wait until it is completely finished and have the full experience. Ever since I was little and played the original RSE/LGFR games, I always wanted a Gold/Silver remake on the GBA. This very hack is my childhood dream coming true! I hope Diego will finish it, and if he decides not to, I will happily play the latest version anyway :D

      All the best to you Diego. This hack is amazing.

        Man, I remember playing Beta 2 when I was in school and now I am in my second year of university. A part of me is really hoping this hack is not dead because by lord, is this gorgeous. A real treat for those who choose to remain faithful to the series without any extra add ons etc. I hope to see Beta 3 one day.

            The Pokégear is not at all what's keeping me from going back anymore. It contributed to the start of the long break I took but now, the disassembly project is what's needed for me to come back so I've just been working hard on getting that to a usable state.

            I will! And yeah, the Pokégear should be able to store many numbers in it.

            Funny, because when I released Beta 2 I was just starting high school and now I'm midway through college!

            Thanks! I honestly can't wait to get back to work on CD and make it even better with the disassembly project.

                  Diego, I really like this hack but I was wondering what the crc of your pokemon emerald is. There are two versions out there and I was wondering which of the two US versions you are using as base. Another thing I'd like to ask is what you said in your site regarding the future of this hack. You stated there that you plan to rebuild it from scratch, does that mean our save files wold be useless in the next version? Lastly, beta 3 says that everything in Kanto would be finished, so is beta 3 going to be a completed crystal experience with a few bugs before being labeled as a final product? Thank you and I've had your hack since 2012 and I've really been waiting for you to finish this. I hope you do. I know there's HG/SS but there's something about playing gen 2 in gba that I really like. So please, I hope you can finish this in the near future. Good luck!

                  PS
                  Why do you use and IPS file instead of UPS? I thought UPS was better than IPS since it wouldn't patch the ROM unless it's the correct one. That way, people won't get any bugs or crashes by having the wrong version of Emerald as base. Hope you would do a UPS one if you do plan on rebuilding the whole thing. Just a suggestion

                      The CRC-32 of the ROM I work on is 1f1c08fb, but the CRC-32 of the ROM I create the patch against is 5df70329; the latter has a (sloppy) patch to 'fix' 64KB save files on older emulators, but is wholly incompatible with the changes I've made to CD's save file structure. I've known about the different copies floating around the internet for a while now so I create the patch against the broken one to ensure no matter which Emerald you use, the save mechanism is correct and mandates a 128KB save.

                      Yup, exactly. Then again, saves would likely not work regardless of the rebuild or not, simply because of the way I go back and make changes to earlier parts of the game.

                      Beta 3 will indeed finish the strict remake portion of the hack, though that doesn't make it a finished project. The Sevii Islands are still planned to be introduced sometime. And thank you!

                      It's really out of habit more than anything nowadays, since IPS hacks were the more common (or maybe only) distribution method back when I started. Beta 3 might come as a UPS file, we'll just have to see.

                          Probably in a week. If beta 3 is not out after a week, wait for a month. If it's still not released, wait for a year. If you have waited an entire year and still receive no updates, wait for a week/a month/a year again and so on. Try it, it works.

                            1) He does not owe you an answer.
                            2) Stop being an annoying piece of Garbodor and let him take his time with HIS hack.
                            3) Do yourself a favor and look up how difficult it is to make a polished Rom hack.
                            4) There is a manner of asking and clearly you lack basic social etiquette.
                            5) You have no right to make demands because you are not funding him to make this hack.
                            5) Learn how to respect people who are putting in time and effort to give birth to a wonderful product for us to play.

                            Have a good day. ^-^

                              I'm so darn hyped for that juicy Beta 3. I remember playing this awhile back. Was really fun and I'm happy you're bringing it back :")
