      Soundproof is busted as it blocks all kinds of attacks.

      Although progress with incorporating the new battle engine is currently on hold, I've been at work with making some minor tweaks with Sigma Emerald. The wait for the completion of the disassembly provides (very) plenty of time to refine what is present before adding more new stuff into the game. Upcoming changes will include minor wild encounter tweaks as well as music changes in a few areas.

This is thematically quite appropriate and gives people the chance to hunt for all of them. No doubt there is something else that would work better for Unown's current location in the game?
      I have addressed this concern for the next update. Wild Unown will be found in the inner portion of the Sealed Chamber (after the player uses Dig) and gives the chance for all variants to be caught :)

      Thanks for the clarifications. I'll try looking further into the issue with this move, though the bug merely slows down the gameplay.

      3. Reducing the pokedex down to a custom size, I see no point in a hack or sideshow hack having every gen 1-3 pokemon available, it creates overcrowding on every route and it's really not necessary. Adding in the Gen 4 evolutions and perhaps a few event pokemon from later gens would be cool. But nearly 400 pokemon is way too much.

      4. Perhaps adding in a shard system similar to Gen 4 + with certain moves being allowed to be tutored.
      1. A challenge mode will be considered once the project is finished. It'll be tough trying to maintain two different branches whenever there are new features to be added.

      2. Will be easier with the new engine, as there will be less of a need to add new routines into the ROM individually.

      3. The plan is to add cross-gen evolutions and keep everything else as-is. (and rearrange the Pokedex accordingly)

      4. Like #2 and #3, will be more seamless to implement once the new battle engine is here.

      You might want to consult Tlachtli regarding this, as he was the one who fixed the PRNG in Sigma Emerald.

      EDIT: v1.9 has been uploaded, bringing updated cries consistent with Gen 6 onward. Refer to the changelog for the full list of changes.

      Additionally, the encounter sheet has been updated with the latest tweaks to the locations of each Pokemon (wild, event, and in-game trade)

            I keep encountering a strange bug where the battle music will get stuck disabling all in game music. Saving the game will cause it to freeze. Playing on John GBA.

                Please, add Flare Blitz to the game before the updated emerald engine, it's the last thing that doesn't makes the game perfect for me...

                v1.912

                The 1.912 update is made for players who wish to challenge the Battle Frontier with IV/EV trained Pokemon. Everything that was added is found within the building behind the Pokemon Center. Here's what's new:




                New Stat Judge
                The new stat judge will go through a selected Pokemon's IVs one-by-one before giving an overall assessment. He replaces the Legendary Breeder, who is now located inside the Day Care at Route 117.




                EV Checker
                The EV checker will go through a selcted Pokemon's EVs in the same manner as the new stat judge. Selecting "Info" on the EV Checker and Stat Judge's option boxes will give the player a brief rundown on EVs and IVs respectively (because why not?).




                Hyper Trainer
                Last but not least, the Hyper Trainer will train a selected Pokemon to perfect IVs at the cost of three Heart Scales. (Not intended to be a recreation of Gen 7's Hyper Trainer as I have not played any of the Gen 7 games)

                It took--a lot--of scripting and debugging to get these three to function smoothly and efficiently, but it was well-worth it in the end. I have intended to add IV/EV checking and Hyper Training to the Battle Frontier quite some time now, and it feels amazing to finally have them completed. Enjoy!

                EDIT: Pushed v1.912 with further improvements in dialogue and script execution

                Nope. The difficulty is more or less identical to v1.8

                  Hi, DraconianWing! ty for the amazing hack rom :)
                  you said the sprites would be the last thing u gonna change, but, but, why not the first? :DD
                  I played a hack rom recently and the sprites are perfect(Dinisk H.rom), fired red rom based, sprite platinum.
                  can u add those sprites in emerald rom? Thank you in advance.

                  Dinisk rom with the sprites:

                    Not only are those sprites noticably worse, but since its in firered they don't even move like they do in sigma emerald. The sprites are fine as is.

                    Not to mention its absolutely unreasonable to ask someone to redo the entire sprite list all over again just because of a preference of platinum over hgss sprites (which are the same)

                      Thanks for this hack, Mr. Draco. I have a question, when the new engine comes out, you're going to put mega evos?

                            Around route 112-113 when you get off Slateport theres a few trainers with voltorbs with soundproof. It seems to block all attacks even ones like roar,toxic. So it 's impossible to kill.

                                  The game crashes anytime a volbeat is appears or is supposed to be sent out by a trainer.

                                      To make the new moves animations show in the contests, just go to 0xDE83A to replace B1 with FF.

                                        Great hack! I think its really good idea to update just mechanics without bringing all new generations in 3rd gen. Looking forward for new versions. Would be cool to get tactician scizor and poison heal breloom in 3rd game pokemons. Maybe with toxic and other orbs.

                                        On a side note - I think it would be better to return cacoon pokemons in Petalburg woods. Since final evolution of wurple is dependent on "invisible" stats, it become hard to get both of them for pokedex.

                                        P.S. Sturdy is still pre 5 gen mechanics, right?

                                          I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned in the Bugs Section.
                                          If your pokémon levels up with the experience obtained by catching a pokémon, the pokédex screen that shows up if you caught said pokémon for the very first time looks screwed up.


                                          EDIT: Pretty sure this is Deoxys' triangle.


                                          EDIT2: "encounter guide.txt" is incomplete/not entirely reliable. Nuzleaf can appear in Route 114, yet the document doesn't say so.

                                              If you're using NUPS Patcher, make sure to set "If file is invalid" to "Ignore".
                                              If you're using Tsukuyomi, make sure to check "Bypass checksum validation"
