    EDIT: Ok, does life of guardians ALWAYS keep doing that "analyzing, unpacking..." screen? Or does it stop after you save your game once. The weird thing is, I get a "success" on both of the "tests" performed on these screens, but then immediately on the screen afterwards, I get a "This hack may not be legit". Why is it doing that and how do I fix it?
    The Ruby (U) worked fine with me for all the Ruby Destiny games...
    Yeah, it does always do the "Analyzing, Unpacking, Success!" thing, but you can speed through it by holding the spacebar. If you read the "This hack may not be legit" screen, it tells you to click any button (The keys that work on VBA are Z, X, A, S , Backspace, Enter, up, down, left right)

      No, I know how to get past the screen, it is just I want to know if that is supposed to happen. I have to ask you, did you use the pokemon Ruby hack base WITH the MUGS intro or without it?

      EDIT: TC, I am glad you have used the far superior UPS file patching format. Could you possibly create a .ups patch for the previous two games? It would be quite helpful, so I make sure I am patching to the correct ROM versions.

        Hi I really want a scyther / scizor in this game but it seems that I couldnt find the location to get a scyther in the pokedex and for scizor I can never get to the correct tile on the map. Any ways to do so?

          Oh. Sorry.
          It is supposed to happen.
          And I used the one without the MUGS intro.

          You can find Scythers in the Safari Zone in Rainleaf Town. (Don't use the Abra because it's not in any of the other sections of the Safari...) Scyther will evolve in to Scizor at lv.25, by the way...

              Uh...If I remember correctly, Abra and it's evolutions don't exist in LoG. (Meaning you can't get one even if you cheat)

              So I finally finished LoG in these previous 2 days and... this was... AWESOME!
              DJG you've overdone yourself... each beta was better and better than the previous one and I totally enjoyed every part of the game.
              It really deserved the HoTY award and I must say I did not play more enjoyable hack =)
              Even though the difficulty after 8th symbol was HARDCORE xxxD
              Kicking crap outta Richard 3 times without healing, Dragon Gods on 100 levels, Ruby Destiny like 6 times xD
              Though Master 17 was not that hard at all... well especially because of all the Rare Candies that can be obtained :D :D

              And I also I tried to find every possible TM and here they are in order in which I found them.
              TMs - 37, 20, 36, 31, 38, 10, 19 (2 times => Andrew should give out Toxic), 29, 17, --3,13,19,24,35 for sale--, 45, 01, 16, 26, 33, 46, 08, 07, 05, 47, 25, 14, 22, 29, 40, 30, 04

              Once again, thank you for the most enjoyable hacks, DJG, it's really sad to see Ruby Destiny ending since they are hacks that are worth remembering and will always be.

                    In a house on Soothe Path... The Move Deleter, in case you ever need it, is in a house in Silkwind Town...

                        Horsea is only available by fishing. However, since Jagold hasn't done the fishing sprites, we cannot fish for the time being. As I stated in a previous post, Horsea now evolves at lv.25. Seadra now evolves at lv.35...

                          So if I am reading your post correctly, then does that mean we still have a few more updates to go before the hack is complete?

                            Pretty much. The main features all work and everything, Jagold just needs to fix a few glitches and add a bit more of Gento, and stuff like that for it to be completely complete. The fishing rod may or may not return, depending on whether he has enough time...

                                Really? I didn't know that.
                                By Mount Oren, do you mean Mount Krystal, and the Hevah Academy?

                                  Time to get back to playing LoG after a long break
                                  Horsea can be caught during the water event in the city south of Silkwind. I forgot the name of that city thou... Anyways, I was able to catch mine. Right now I'm trying to get Staryu. As for evolutions - do pokemon such as Growlithe (evo stone dependant) are able to evolve via leveling up or do they evolve only by using a stone? Is Occultales the final form of Ninetales or is it a separate pokemon?

                                  Is the PokeNav able to store only 31 trainer numbers? I can't register all the people willing to fight me It would also be nice to have a map pointer to a specific trainer because they are well hidden sometimes...

                                  Destine when will you implement evolution stones other than lightning and water in the game? Could you also implement Poke Marts back in? I've had the mart/ evo stone seller glitch for quite a while now (since beta 9) and it's still not fiex. Healing items can be bought from the seller in Hevah League but I can't get flare/sun/moon stones anywhere else

                                    How do I get my first fragment? I talked to Chaomega and it did not give me 1.

                                    Also, I talked to Rayquaza and it did not battle me.

                                    I have Chaomega, Giratina, Deazone and Devihel in possession already.

Right now I'm trying to get Staryu. As for evolutions - do pokemon such as Growlithe (evo stone dependant) are able to evolve via leveling up or do they evolve only by using a stone? Is Occultales the final form of Ninetales or is it a separate pokemon?

                                      Is the PokeNav able to store only 31 trainer numbers? I can't register all the people willing to fight me It would also be nice to have a map pointer to a specific trainer because they are well hidden sometimes...

                                      Destine when will you implement evolution stones other than lightning and water in the game? Could you also implement Poke Marts back in? I've had the mart/ evo stone seller glitch for quite a while now (since beta 9) and it's still not fixed. Healing items can be bought from the seller in Hevah League but I can't get fire/sun/moon stones anywhere else
                                      Alright...Growlithe now evolves at lv.32...
                                      You can get the stones from the guy in Rainbow City. Moon Stones are not available....The mart glitch has been appearing frequently and Jagold doesn't know what's causing it yet. Unfortuatley, adding marts again won't do anything to fix the problem...

                                      I have Chaomega, Giratina, Deazone and Devihel in possession already.
                                      Go to Krystal Mountain and get Angeallen first...Then you can speak to Rayquaza. After that, bring all four of the Dragon Gods to Chaomega, and you should be able to initiate the Ruby Destiny "quest"...

                                          Yeah...I really like the Ruby Destiny series...Hm...
                                          But apparently Jagold is working on (or at least helping to some degree) a new hack project called SkyLine...He implemented the "Chip Battle" thing into it...But he's only making progress if he has spare time. But, yeah...

                                            Hi guys, i have one question, just where do you train in order to defeat the league? (trainers before the masters?)

                                            I don't know if this has been pointed out but when giratina suckes you in another dimension, when you come back and you travel through the cave and use dig, you come back to the HQ and the event starts again (but i fast-loaded a former save so didn't verify if I had to do it all again or just come out of the cave).

                                            Really amazing hack btw Thank you

                                            F.

                                              Thanks a lot for answering. I can finaly train more fire pokemon! As for the glitch I asked Jagold to implement stone giving events such as the maze giving Thunder stones or water event giving Water Stones. If moon stones are not obtainable then I won't be able to evolve Evee into all it's forms
                                              Jagold finished woring on this hakc already? QQ I wanna see moar of it!!

                                              Another question: some pokemon are missing special abilities. F.e. a scyther can have either Swarm or Technician, according to Bulbapedia. I caught a few of them and they all got Swarm. Is it because LoG is based on generation 3 ROM? Would it be possible to add these missing traits?

                                              Does anyone else think Guibit and it's lower form are annoying? I absolutely hate it!

                                                I have some troubles patching the ups file to ruby. Every time I try to patch with tsukuyomi, it says "Failed! Input checksum is invalid". I tried with NUPS as well. No luck. I've got and tried both the roms with and without MUGS. I am also using the "final" patch
                                                Some help would be much appreciated.
