I have actually been keen on wanting to learn how to translate ROM hacks from foreign languages into English. I have been asking around but barely found any information. Would you be down to guide me? Thank you!
Yeah. Definitely. Shoot me a pm on discord

Hello phantonomy thank you for making this game playable for english speaking user and fixing bugs along the way.

And I don't know if this is a bug but sometimes when you use dexnav their eggmove/ability doesn't show.

Hey thanks for this. I think fixing issues like this goes beyond what I set out to do. That aside, I'm not sure that your screenshots show the bugs you are talking about. I think I've noticed some of the things you are mentioning, but as i am not the original creator and I did not insert/configure the CFRU, it's really hard to fix those sorts of features.

Are you ok with people using this as a base and improving it/doing more intensive bug fixing? Either way, thanks for all the work you've done on this! <3 If you're "done" with it, I hope others are able to take it further.

Is there an easy item cheat code to get hidden ability? Want to play a Libero Cinderace play through. The codes used in other hacks just brings up Alcremie berries or Reaper Cloth. Great hack!

Not for me to say. Reach out to PCLG. He's the creator. Keep in mind he speaks Portuguese. He said i he made this for the community and is happy to see people playing and the translation, but i cant speak for him.

I'm not sure honestly. Some fire red cheat codes work.

Hi Everyone!

I've been obsessed with the idea of GBA demakes for later games for a little while now. I stumbled across PCL.g and Jean star's Sword and Shield GBA game.

There are a few versions of this game floating around online. The regular version and an ultimate version. The regular version is in both Portuguese and English, while the Ultimate version is only in Portuguese.

While very cool in concept, these games all suffer from compatibility issues. They can only be played on specific emulators with specific settings. I did a deep dive into all of these roms in order to try to gain functionality on real hardware (ie, flashable repro. carts). The non-ultimate versions have a bug which will not allow you to progress past the title screen and will crash. I have had no success in fixing that version.

That left me with the Ultimate version. The Ultimate version worked...kinda. It contained game breaking bugs which caused crashes when you try to view either your bag or your party. This makes it impossible to catch Pokemon, use items, and many other issues which you could conceive.

I have fixed those bugs and now the game is playable on all emulators I have tested (mGBA, VBA-M, and no$gba) and functions on reflashed reproduction cartridges as well as on the Analogue pocket's openFPGA.

The game was still only in Portuguese. As a native English speaker, I wanted to play in my own language. I have faithfully translated the Ultimate version into English.

Here I am sharing a .ups patch which you can patch to a base Fire Red ROM which you may use to play on any medium of your choosing!

I want to again emphasize. I take no credit for the creation of this ROM hack, I merely translated it to English and fixed some bugs to make it compatible with real hardware. I asked PCL.G for permission to distribute this version and he approved my request.

Credit:
Full credit to PCL.G and Jean stars, and various other members of their team who helped bring this rom to life originally!

Features:

- Full Gym Challenge.
- Full Sword and Shield Story.
- Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra post-game.
- Auto-run by pressing L.
- Dexnav in the menu.
- Dynamax by pressing R on a move in battle when Dynamax is possible.
- Gigantimax
- Mega evolution
- Z-moves
- Ultra beasts

Bugs:
In the Wyndon train station, there is an eevee kid that will freeze the game if you speak to them prior to the piers event.
Do not return to Rose Tower after you have beaten it, Piers will block the way and you will be stuck!

Shiny palettes are not present in this game, so you may run into a non-color changed shiny! I thought this was sorta funny, so I boosted the shiny odds.

Support:
I have created a discord server to support this version:

Download:
Attached zip of .ups file. Left file patch to FireRed USA, Europe (Rev1), Right patch to squirrels. Patch using Rom Patcher JS.
How do i play this rom? No emulator I can find runs it's file type
