A few questions...

Where do you get the Silver Wing?

How do you trigger the Rayquaza (Groudon and Kyogre?) and Regi events?

What's with that "fishy" rock near Whirl Islands?
You can get Silver Wing in Pewter City, just like original G/S/C. Those legendary Pokemon can be caught after you beat Red. As for that fishy rock, I have no idea about what Zel was planning to do with it. I always add legendary Pokemon events to make full use those fishy rock things, but that one is different, if I do something to that one, then some random events will be damaged. This happens a lot in this hack. so I decided to not to touch it.

Hey! Hacksrepairman, do you plan on adding GDC remixes to shiny gold?
Sorry, but I'm not planning to do that, because Zel changed the music before even though the changed music may not be the actual GSC remix music. I want to keep the original flavor of these old hacks, so I never change things which were done by the original creator(Except for things which may cause glitches/things like "end of beta").

I still remember how much I liked this game. This is why I decided to make a fixed version of this hack which contains a whole Kanto Region. I know someone else tried to do the same thing, but all of them tried to change the original things in this hack. This makes me think I should make a fixed version in which all the creators' ideas are perfectly preserved. So, here it is. A faithfully fixed Pokemon Shiny Gold Beta5.
The following glitches are fixed:
A small cave in Ice Path is glitched.
The glitched border tiles of Route 2.
You can still enter Safari Zone even though you lost your Pokemon.
The following things are added by me:
Gold/Silver style Pewter City, Route 3, Mt. Moon, Vermilion City, Route 1, Pallet Town, Route 21, Cinnabar Island, Route 20, Route 19.
Trainer Tower, secret areas where you can catch Mewtwo, Rayquazza and Regirock after Red is defeated. (All these things are based on the creator's original map.)
Rival's events in Mt. Moon, Indigo Plateau and Dragon's Den.
Some screenshots:

Here's the download link:

I checked out the whole game again and found that there was something wrong with the wild Pokemon encounter table. You may encounter ???????????? Pokemon in the Ruins of Alph(While fishing with Super Rod) and Route 28, so I fixed it. The old link still works:

Thank you so much for the reply, Hacksrepairman! I was also hoping to ask if you have any intention towards completing the Shirt Gold X difficulty mod as well?
Thank you!
Track Number 2 of my debut Mixtape, Venting Session Vol.1:
What's it like - https://youtu.be/Qxs6shEpHIo
A lot of emotions, thought and a bit of nostalgia went into the making of this particular track on the Mixtape.

Hacksrepairman thank you again for your work! This game is awesome, very smooth to play and not as hard as e.g. Liquid Crystal. So you can just go around and enjoy the game and the story without heavy grinding.

I see you can't fly to lake of rage, is it a bug/miss or state of the art? I know it is not the intention of the creator (zel), but I would love physical/special split and b/w repel system here. There are some modern aspects in hacks like Ash Gray oder Liquid Crystal that would make Shiny Gold better playable without destroying the basic idea of the hack from zel. But I know also that this is not your intention when you update old hacks!

All in oll - Shiny Gold is very old, but still one of the greatest hacks I've ever played - just classy, a kind of heart gold for GBA! :)

Hey guys can i ask how to trade Pokemon from this game to the other Pokemon games like Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald. I know that you must have Prof. Oak's permission to do it, but it seems I can't get Prof Oak to give me permission, is there anyway to trade to other games?


Note: I already finish the main story and have already beaten Red and I'm using MyBoy to trade Pokemon using the link cable support they have

Everything was kewl till I had to face Red: https://www.mediafire.com/folder/kporm144kzp4r/ (don't mute or ban me, the link show two files to run a video on vba-m because it doesn't record videos in another format), check it out to nerf Red team or make some available spots to grind exp then facing him lighter. Btw once u download the files, open the vba-m emulator then click on File and Play, once u're there, u can pick the file to play the video and watching.

I found out the same, also I can't get Regirock and Rayquaza, only Mewtwo is available. And there is also a bug with Lavender Town Pokemon Center, the game freezes after the event in Rock Tunnel.
When my pkmn used teleport to Mahogany, it ends up in like those attachment show. Also Idk y I can't battle Rival in DD (after beating Red and I forgot wut it said before it showes on the image), I got the ticket (from attachment also) from an oldman in Pewter city, where it suppose to be found the Silver wing, now Idk if going to Whirl island to check it out if it'll trigger Lugia or waiting for response if anyone know how to use it. I might go l8r to see it since Regirock or Rayquaza didn't trigger for me also, just got a Timid Mewtwo with awesome stats (after failing to catch it 19 times due critical hits to it mostly).

I like how Lavender town glitch so bad, maybe u need to get first the poke flaute ("radio exp card") before healing there and u could void the fun glitch that force u to restart, I didn't I could get Celebi till I used phone to call prof Elm, and talked to me to get him the GS ball from SS Anne 2, I even didn't have or knowing about it, so I took the SS Anne "2" and let the glitch begin, the whole event triggered and if u talk to the npc that showes up there to ur eyes but they shouldn't be there, it get freezes, so I manage to pass the whole thing by just voiding these stuff (just to get a modest aggron), I'm glad I could use a bike to pass that place, cuz walking and running, ew. BTW, anyone here got something from the 'White ball game' from radio Goldenrod tower, cuz I spent my savings (all) trying, ofc I saved up it first, and lost lotta of time cuz this thing didn't work the autofire. It sux but it has to be that way, just anyone tell me wut's the drop from winning there. I might try again (nah)

That's strange, some of the glitches you have mentioned didn't happen to me. So I have no idea about how to fix them, sorry.

In the previous patch, some players may not be able to catch Rayquaza and Regirock, and it's possible that you can't get Silver Wing. And there is a chance you game freezes when you heal your Pokemon in Lavender Town. All these things should be fixed in the newest patch, the old link still works:

For some reason this patch soesn't work for me - when I try to load it I get error beeps and nothing else. Tried on several emulators with several roms - problem stays. Is there any specific patch requirements here? Like program used or special rom release?

Nevermind, look like fiirst time patch itself was corrupted

So I've been playing ultra shiny gold sigma for a bit now, made it quite a ways through kanto and finally caught celebi. But recently I've been getting into breeding my pokemon because I wanted a decent froakie to raise.

Well at some point I decided to breed my gardevoir and everytime he lays an egg it hatches into a mega gardevoir, which sounded cool at first, but then I realized that I won't be getting the stat boosts from evolution. You get huge boosts to your stats when you evolve your pokemon so starting as a mega form Pokemon it's not going to grow to be as strong as the gardevoir I already have (also as a side note, a few bad eggs appeared in my PC and I have no idea what caused them. But I was uh, pretty shaken up. Luckily it allowed me to release them with no problem.)

Jiangzhengwenjzw helped me to apply JPAN's save patch to this hack. Now all flags and vars should be safe, which means you may not see any bad eggs in the PC anymore. However, if your save file is from the older version, then don't update it, because this update may not be safe for old save files.

In case someone wants to contribute:

Technical details for this update:



At first the hack works on JPAN's save block recycle.

This hack is to solve flag/var abuse problem in shiny gold. A wide range of variables/flags are used and many are not safe, so I made a small routine. For flags it reads in sequence from 0x203C000. And for vars, it maintains a global u32 variable at 0x203C324 to record the number of current tracked variables in the array at 0x203C328.

Memory Layout for variables:


Black is the global u32 counter variable, red is currently tracked var name, and green is the corresponding var value. The array grows when a new variable (do a linear scan in the array to find if it's already tracked) is found.

The routine only handles flag No. [0x900, 0x2000) and var No. [0x4100, 0x8000). Otherwise it's handled with vanilla logic in-game.

Source code (in armips syntax):
.gba
.thumb
.open "pokeshinygold.gba", 0x8000000

gRamFreeSpaceStart equ 0x0203C000

gFlagRamStart equ gRamFreeSpaceStart
gArrayCount equ (0x203C324)
gVarRamStart equ (gArrayCount+4)

flagNotInRange:
	ldr r0, =0x806E5C9
	bx r0

.close
But, clearly it will need more test cases.

An alternative is to keep the var list sorted, so that we can do binary search instead of linear search. But I don't think it's really necessary here. Ofc, you can change the offset 0x203C324 to 0x203C2E0, but there's no much difference as there're already sufficient space for var access.

Remaining Bugs:



This is a memo to list the remaining bugs. Hacksrepairman and I didn't touch these bugs because Zel wrongly reused data snippets several times, so you won't know if fixing one bug will cause a more severe problem.

Please report any bug you've found!

I've created an account here just to report a new bug.

In Slowpoke Well's B1F, you "can get a lot of" Rain Dance. Item pokeballs was replaced by NPC trainers, and one of two appears repeatedly; everytime player calls him, it returns a Rain Dance TM.

---------------------------------

Other thing that's not a bug, but... Is possible to fix volume sound from Zel's themes (Cherrygrove City and Lighthouse)? Are really louder than others used ingame.

I went to the download link, and applied the ShinyGold Faithfully Fixed Beta 5 ips to Fire Red.

Somehow, Shiny Gold does not start at all. Not sure, why its not working. I downloaded the 8/23/19 Version. Thanks!
