I'm playing a Pokemon Kaizo Crystal Nuzlocke run, and it's my first time ever using an emulator (VisualBoy Advance.) I saved my game, then tried loading it, and now for some reason I can't get the game to stop running at anywhere between 700-1200% speed. Is this happening because I saved the game while pressing the space bar (speed) accidentally? Or is there some other reason? More importantly, is there a fix to this problem? Thanks.
Are you goings going to make fun of me if I post my very first route here?
>>37957052Criticism will make you better
>>37957052Most likely, yes. Do it anyway.
>>37957052Yes, but how will you expect to get any better without some peer review?
>>37957052No, unless it’s shit. I post my stuff here all the time and get good feedback
Okay... here it is. The first route I've ever made.
>>37957161I fixed it.
>>37957183>>37957161I am sure there are better ways to show off a map
>>37957161Too many big chunks of nothing. The puddle in the sand should be a puddle, not a pool. No point to have a little pool you'd have to surf through. The trainers look all avoidable except maybe the guy in the middle. Tall grass at the top is pointless since you don't need to go through it. Tbh, there isn't much design going on here at all. Just a big open bit of sand and water with a few npcs and buildings plopped down.
>>37957183Make the beach less square and add more details into it. Also make sure you don’t have a lot of open space
>>37957161>>37957183How do you get that Pokeball?Can you just surf away into the ocean?Why are the stairs single instead of double?Why are some zones so empty?Why are bushes lined up so autistically? Make it more random.There is a rock on top of the grass... twice.
>>37957183>>37957161To show off the map better, go into layers and select “show all layers”
>>37957206I don't think players should be forced to go through grass. And I couldn't find a graphic for puddles.>>37957223That was deliberate. It looks like grass is growing around the rock, doesn't it?
>>37957239It doesn't, it looks like a rock over a grass tile rather than a rock with tall gras enveloping the base. You're better off making a new tile. You wanna try to give your map a little more direction so the player understands where the critical path is.
>>37956760Why don't you, /rheg/?
I don't have friends. I have a 2DS with Gold, Silver, and Crystal. How do I trade with myself?
>>37957647I don't want to.
>>37957777BASED & 2DPILLED
Does there exist any spritesheets of other gens in the style of Gen 1? I'd use this, but these sprites are fucking garbage and don't at all fit with Red and Blue sprites.
>>37956858It's not the same anymore :(
Ultra Sun made me realize official Pokemon games will probably never be fun again. Are there any good hacks of the 3DS games?
What do you guys think of EvoCreo? i pirated it yesterday and like the overworld sprite work. touch phone controls are ass though
>>37958629>What do you guys think of EvoCreo?I think that you came to the wrong thread, m8.That's an indie game for mobile platforms, not a ROM Hack or a FanGame.
>>37957647That's a fuck tone of work. People can't even finish 2D projects, so imagine a breath of the wild like.
>>37957647Because we have Pixelmeme
>>37958205Those are garbage attempts at recreating the new Pokemon. Also, why is Red/Blue Golbat paired with JP Red sprites?
>>37956833Are there any fangames that do the thing in OP's pic that aren't Pokémon Spork?
>>37960701>Those are garbage attempts at recreating the new PokemonThat's why I'm trying to ask if there's a better version out there.>why is Red/Blue Golbat paired with JP Red sprites?Don't forget Blastoise, Paras, Tentacruel, Slowbro, Magnemite, Dewgong, Exeggcute, Koffing, and Tauros.
>>37958205You could clearly see the artist's motivation to finish this dip at around Natu lmao
>>37957647Because BotW fucking sucks and putting Pokemon in it would just make Pokemon worse by proxy.
What do you think about this article written by PC Gamer about fan games and hacks?https://pastebin.com/WykEahGM
>>37962542>Snakewood, as its title might suggest, is the Pokémon game for edgelords.Is it? I thought "Snakewood" was gonna be a wild west game when I heard the title but didn't see any gameplay.
>>37957650Rip the saves off your sd card, transfer it to your pc and then use that gameboy emulator with the link cable emulation
>>37961459It was a collab, if I recall properly.
>>37962542>https://pastebin.com/WykEahGM>The weird world of BOOTLEG Pokémon games on PC>Constantly wont shut up about Creepy BlackThis was written by a boomer obviously
>>37962766>There’s an undeniable nostalgia to watching people ask each other if they have a shiny Charmander, in public, for the first time since 1998. No, it's a retarded zoomer whose first game was probably FR/LG
>>37962766This brings up a question for everyone.Fanart is never called "bootleg art". Instead they are hired to do designs for detective Pikachu. Neither is fan fiction, fan animations, parodies etc. They are all treated with respect as fan content even if they find a way to profit off of it. Theres plenty of Pokeporn patreon accounts raking in thousands of bucks per year and nobody ever bats an eye. Many peoples livelyhoods are solely based around Pokemon content, just look at the clickbaiting Poketubers.The only outlier is fan games. People assume the worst and focus on that it might get shut down rather than the work that went into it. Fan games are usually scorned by the public even if they are free.For fan game developers, my question is: how does this hypocrisy make you feel?
>>37962872I've been making my game for myself since Day 1. It's a definite shame but whatever. People who enjoy this kind of stuff will enjoy it, everyone else can get fucked.
>>37962872It drives me crazy when someone goes on about how fan developers are talentless hacks who cant make their own fucking ideas but that same person praises fan art and watches Youtubers who just play video games for a living.
>>37962872Because companies are greedy for cash and they fear some neckbeard in their basement might make something better than they could. Then they might actually have to put effort in their games instead of recycling bullshit and dumbing everything down to get at a lower common denominator fanbase.And people will defend this practice because they're fanboys and the company can do no wrong
For PSDK, it says I need to ask on the discord for something called ruby host. Is that actually necessary?
>>37963189Then why dont they also shut down the fan animations and parodies? They are taking viewing time away from official Pokemon episodes and movies.
>>37963231Those are specifically protected under fair use law, fangames are not
>>37962872>>37963189This reminds me of how people were screeching about mother 4 even though the creators said there would never be another game in the series to the point where the team had to change the name and assets.
>>37963231What >>37963244 said. Its a hypocritical law in my opinion but its still the law.
>>37963222There's a link in the PC topic for that and yes its necessary. It's used to edit the database and the additionnal informations of the maps.
>>37963244Parodies fall under fair use. Fan animations do not.
>>37956833I'm tempted by romhack for the first time because life is boring and I have way too much free time.I'd like to play a rom that's very solo oriented, is already finished and/or has a decent late game, has the phys/special split implemented and, ideally, has an original scenario, do you guys have any recommendations?
>>37963290Protip: Blund it with the next version of PSDK
>>37963320People dont generally understand fair use.Fair use applies to Poketubers (reporting) and parodies. They dont apply to any fan content that dont fall under those categories. So the Patreons who like to draw Charizard's cock for 2 grand a month are breaking the law.
>>37958229Hey you forgot to write "t. essentialsfag" in your post.
>>37957647oh look another "I got everything figured out except making a fuckng game, please do the difficult work for me thxbye :^)"
>>37964077I need one of those people right about now. I'm fresh out of inspiration.
>>37958332Just difficulty hacks, I liked Supernova Sun.
>>37956833Is it really that simple to swap & save a .narc file? I was trying to edit the evolution of some trade mons from white 2 so you could evolve them without trading and I replaced the corresponding file with nitro explorer 2 but it didn't ask me to save the rom or anything. Is it supposed to work that way?
>>37962805It already is
>>37965094I don't remember it being that easy, but I was using the chink explorerJust download one of those "ultimate saves" and try it out.
Random question, but would it be possible, using the pokeemerald disassembly, to make battles outside of the Battle Arena use the rules of it? The whole no-switching 3 rounds and then judged setup.
>>37956833Is this image describing starter Pokemon?
Need some feedback on a farm route
>>37967188Where is the farmland, why is it all trees? The special rock is overdone and weird. Please stop using that log tile, it's you again isn't itThose eggs on the house are bigger than doorways, don't know if you intended for that or not.
>>37967259Thanks for the feedback. I took out most of the logs, and I’ll take this one out too plus the rock. The farms are to the west, but Ill add more. Also, I’ll probably replace the daycare with a house.
>>37967188Could probably do with more tall gras on the route itself and fewer trees. Fences should serve as good barricades. The overall layout seems solid enough
>>37967188Wouldn't make a lake your centerpiece for a farm. I'd shrink it down a little a move it to a corner of the map.
>>37967188I changed it up a little bit
>>37968100Just took out some of the hay in the middle of the pathway
>>37968100>a bitAre those berry patches or just another trees?Add some roaming here and there, hidden items, breeder/berry expert battle, and should be great.
>>37968100Why the one way tho? Can't you just put a Cut plant or Rock blocking the way?
>>37968139You can't get any berries from them, but I'll definitely put some berry patches along the route. I'll add some of your other ideas as well.>>37968156Theres a small ledge on the bottom right to get back
>>37968100this is a million times better

>>37956833Do they refer to you as "xir" or "it" if you pick other?
First attempt at a map, crucify me. And yes, the left water area is supposed to be open, i'll use it later.
>>37968811I don't even care about the tile placement, but mixing in RS' ugly tiles with FRLG's? That's a no from me pham.
why are all the editing tools for hgss so shit?
>>37968923I mean, i kinda like the Hoenn's tiles better. The buildings look a bit less square and the tiles are less saturated.
Some emulators support SGB borders for GBC ROMs (for example, BGB can boot in SGB mode, and then reset to CGB as soon as a border is loaded), so here's a border for Crystal.
hey guys i made a thread about the new alchemist 5.0 beta so check it out at >>37970456 if you're interested. looking for feedback, anything really
I kinda want to update the FR/LG tiles to Gen V style, anyone know how?
>>37972511Advance Map, Google/DeviantArt (for the tiles), GIMP/paint.net/photoshop/mspaint and a tutorial on how to replace tiles.
>>37969337Does this break compatibility with original hardware?
>>37956875I'll take that into consideration with my game, just for faggots like you
>>37967009Gave it a shot and it turns out the evolution tweaks I did ended up getting mangled somehow. I'm pretty sure it's the editor I used because I accidentally tried to open Eevee's page and the tool crashed. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? (I used this tool to edit that: https://github.com/andibadra/ANDT/releases/tag/22.214.171.12440923)
I was playing Drayano's Sacred Gold. First time playing a Rom Hack. Was having a lot of fun with it. Excellent, excellent game. Anyways, I was in the Sprout Tower and all of a sudden I couldn't see my character nor NPC's. Then, battle moves wouldn't display. Then, the top half of Desmume's screen blanked out. Now the ROM won't load. Other games work perfectly. Anyone know what gives?
>>37974181Are you emulating with desmume?
>>37974181do you use savestates?
>>37974247Yes>>37974254Nope, just in-game saves.
>>37974276Well, there's your problem. The dev of desmume for some reason autistically hates pokemon, and has states that he makes desmume to be deliberately unstable for pokemon games. You can fix minor graphical errors by restarting the emulator 99% of the time.
aaaaaaaaaaa where do you guys get tilesetssss
>>37974313That's a bummer. I've been playing Pokemon Platinum just fine on it, though. Already logged about 10 hours. And I've restarted the emulator multiple times now, yet the .NDS file won't load. Other games launch without fail. Aw man.
>>37974337Don't worry, all ROM file types (.nds, .sav, etc) are supported by the other emulaters. Just download a new one.
>>37974355Yup, already on /vg/'s EMUGEN Wiki. Which ones do you/this thread use? One that supports Actiion Replay codes, hopefully. Thanks.
>>37974370Oh, I use desmume. Never had any problems with it beyond the minor graphical glitches. VBA-M for GBA.
>>37974370There's only 2 choices, and sadly, Desmume is the better one.The superior one (which you'll probably not be willing to try.) is to emulate Android and then use DraStic on PC like that, which strangely enough works better than Desmume and doesn't have any major issues with the pokémon games.
>>37974181desmume devs are mad pokemon is the most pirated game so they made pokemon games run like shit or not at all on it, id suggest using any other emulator senpai
>>37956833Anybody got a premade CIA for Dray's Sinking Sapphire hack?
>>37973629You might have to just hex edit it. From my experience, it's less of a hassle to edit pokemon that way. I just wish I hadn't lost my notes from years ago, otherwise I could tell you where to go.
is Pokemon Sage actually any good?
Really interested in Crystal clear but heard apparently its hard to find online? What are vps thoughts on the game is worth recommending for someone who very rarely plays fangames
>one specific Pokemon only shows up when it's a full moon in the real worldgoddamn
How do you edit the TM learnset of pokemon in Black & White? The tool provided in the pastebin only allows you to edit the level up moves.
>>37975743Yeah it is, shame it'll be a long time before its 100% done.
gib cool starter pokemon typings pls
>>37978479grass fire and water hope this helped
>>37978550how about the other two
>>37978496I think I'm going with this, thanks. Sounds like the most fun and unique so far.
>>37973352The original hardware is GBC, so no.
>>37978479allow the player to pick one two-stage shitmon from any type (except maybe dragon), such as arbok, mankey, seel, voltorb, etc. and have them build their entire team from scratcht. someone who thinks official starters are a crutch
>>37967188Reminds me of that route in RS for some reasonthe one with the daycare
Is there any way to play Pokémon Prism on the old 3DS model without gen 3-4 Pokémon having "metallic" cries?The only way I can fix this is having the VC .cia file use the Retroarch Ganbatte Forwarder, but that breaks everything else.
What do you guys think of Pokémon?
>>37968811Is this a ROM hack?
>>37968923There are certain tiles that mix the Hoenn and Kanto tiles and they look neat.
>>37956833The existence of gender identity not in relation to biological sex, is inherently sexist
>>37980955Hot take, here's a hotter one: Trannies are GAY.
>>37956833What game does this? I need to know so I can avoid it forever.
>>37981378Quite a few:Reborn,Uranium and Phoenix Rising do it.And I feel like I'm forgetting more.Insurgence despite it's edge does not and Alchemist doesn't either.
we've tested online battling and trading and they both work pretty well. very proud to be able to include online for our demo.ignore all the unchanged sprites i forgot to verify everything was changed before sending out an alpha build to test.
>>37981746Would it be possible to have parts of the border update while ingame?
anyone know what the password for the ultra sun zipfile is from pokemonlog?Can't find the password anywhere
>>37981832will you be porting it to psdk?
>>37981832Will you be using the online functionality for updates as well? Might be nice to be able to automatically download a patch that makes the game actually good.
>>37982166He already did
Is delta emulator any good? I have iPhone so I don’t think I can use drastic.
PSDK on phone? since it's not RPG Maker ...
Years ago I tried making my own hack based on the Holon region in the TCG. Basically it was an island where some strange power source was mixing up pokemons types.My focus was going to be adjusting TMs and increasing stats of some pokemon and focusing on "shitmon" while reworking movesets and typings for quite a few. Unfortunately I'm really shit at map making and sprite work and didn't understand how to handle events.I'm sure things have improved a lot since 2012 when I started, but how would people feel about say Pokemon Emerald, but encounters, TMs, Pokemon, etc are changed?
>>37982948Are you me? I was setting up something very similar with Delta species, common pokemon, and using emerald as a base. Also in a similar case of not knowing how to handle events.
>>37981852Lots of games do that on a real SGB. But I'm not sure emulators can handle it, since most don't actually emulate the SNES part, they only fake it enough to get an initial border.
Just had an idea. How would people feel about a light mango mod with a few things mixed around? Basically "Rainbow Giovanni" world. Would be a decent field test for my holon concept maybe.I've never done anything like this, so are there any good tutorials to recommend?Any models I can download that at least let me access gen 4 Pokemon, abilities and moves? Ideally all gens as long as the sprites have a consistent style.Any for quality of life such as reusable tms, fairy type, phys/spec split, etc.Any way to change move effects, names, etc?
>>37983649Possible core theme of team rocket monopolizing all the "good" Pokemon so only "shitmons" are left (with updated states/ movepools) and/or an experiment went awry and scrambled up some Pokemon types and such.Basic, but I think that could be ok for a first real try at this?Failing that I guess I could try to fix gen 2s problems, but I'm not sure if any mod tools are able to work with such old things. Also it's probably been done already.
>>37983747Pokemon Alchemist is better
>>37981832How does online work? Do you give your IP to your friend?
>>37972844I want to revamp the Gen III tiles to Gen V style, not use new ones
>>37980928RS buildings are definitely not one of them.
>>37982166Thar IS Pokémon SDK.
>>37982917>since it's not RPG Maker ...It is. The main thing here is that it is not bound to the Win32API.In theory, SDK Games should(?) be able to run on an emulator like Neko RPGXP Player. Don't quote me on that tho.
Pokémon Crystal Clear is a modern-day masterpiece, a revelation. Stood next to it, the celebrated pillars of this community seem diminutive. Gaia, Insurgence, Reborn, Uranium, Prism. All of them, mere specks to the supernova that burns so brightly. Innovative, creative, nostalgic, hilarious, enjoyable. Just some of the words that can attempt to describe its majesty. Perfection.
>>37983747>CC>when Snakewood exists
>>37984152Those are all FRLG styled buildings.
>>37968811its' just trees and water: the route. not really your fault, the tiles for gen 3 are so bland.
>>37982520It's possible (PSDK has an option to check for updates and then download files), but I'd have look more into it.>>37983769Either you or a friend hosts an online connection. You then receive a code and then give it to who you want to connect with in order to connect.Codes can be copied and pasted into game, so no writing it out.
>>37983300It would have been neat to have the border show your party's status, or change color based on the time of day.
can I just make maps as big as I want ? what downs would that bring ?
>>37985398>can I just make maps as big as I wantNo.
>>37983649>>37983698anyone with any feedback?
>>37977966Just found out a tool called Pokemon Rom Changer that allows me to do that. Just throwing it out there in case anyone shared the same issue I had>>37983649>light mango mod>Basically "Rainbow Giovanni" worldwhat is that?
>>37985524Gen 2 hacking has changed a lot since 2012. Ever since the disassembly came out, it's experienced a hacking Renaissance.
>>37983698You can do just about anything you want with the gen 2 games.
>>37958629it's fucking stupid, because pay-to-win pokemon games (quest excluded) are gay.Yeah it's fun, but there's no way for your team to overcome shitty IVs. Movepools are a hassle to construct. Evolution is just specialization, and not an across-the-board improvement. Kinda stupid IMO to make everything a shittier Eevee, but what can you do? If you DON'T want to pay for good IV mons, then you're pretty much stuck with a mono-flying team plus whatever your starter specialized into.
>>37986511>>37986424Nice. Starting simple and seeing if I can get gen 2 to accept a physical and special split, the fairy type, and possibly reusable tms and pokemon abilities sounds like a good place to start I guess.>>37986285typed from my phone while in bed last night, guess kanto translates to mango. "rainbow giovanni" would basically be the alternate reality the Giovanni comes from in Ultra Sun/Moon which as I understand it is a world where Red doesn't exist and beat him.Map would probably be very similar as would events for the most part aside from some things being switched up as per >>37983698
>>37987016Read the wiki.
Does any one know how Ai Levels work in ORAS.I'm trying to make gym leader battles harder but apparently, 7 is the max Ai level for single battles.Apparently the max Ai level for double battles is 135.
>>37962655It’s zombies and random spic shit. Not edgy, just weird and thematically all over the place. Pretty fun overall because of all its idiosyncrasies.
>>37987075Just make every gym a double battle :^)
>>37957161Shit that's good anon
So I checked the pastebin and I don't see a difficulty/full dex hack of D/P/Pt. There has to be one. Recommendations?
>>37987075No idea. Just give the mons good movesets/items and, for the love of all that's sacred and pure, DON'T give Pain Split to anything. The CPU has no idea how to use that move well.
what do you guys think about grass/flying as a starter?
>>37988682I like Tropius
>>37988682Yeah, like pokemon sage?
>>37988983I like this thing!Shame the game may never get actually done.
>>37989105>make a fire cat starter before gen 7>gen 7 has one>so instead they make a fire rabbit >gen 8 has onekek
Would a region based on Russia interest you?
>>37990397Make something that you would like to make first and foremost.
>>37987928Someone else already asked this.Renegade Platinum, Flawless Platinum, Origin Platinum.
what if I made an essentials game using the Pokemon ranger sprites as the basis for the character sprites rather than the typical DP sprites, would it even work in the Essentials "engine"?
>>37991817yeah go for it lad
>>37991817Considering the Ranger games don't have grid-based movement, it would probably be pretty awkward desu.
>>37990397I think I’m gonna go with Russia lads. Should the villains be commies?
>>37993217Too obvious. The villain team should be led by Rasputin
>>37993230Rasputin doesn't have a whole team's worth of subordinates associated with him. He's more of a Trick House or Gym Leader character. For an evil team, there's Bratva if you want an organized-crime Team Rocket repeat... or cosmonauts if you want a literal Team *Rocket* repeat. (Evil goal: bring Pokemon to the Moon. Reason it's evil: Pokemon breathe air. Still smarter than Team Aqua.)
>>37993217>>37993376The Russian Mafia seems more in line to the story of my game. Here's a shitty region map I created for this. The locations aren't perfect. Also the numbers are gyms. Anything I could add or change?
>>37983853Unfortunately, that's not the case because PSDK doesn't use the RGSS. Since it's fully open-source, we can still build everything for Android. (Or add a lot of script degrading the performances to make it compatible with Neko RPGXP Player).>>37982520>>37984995Yep, basically you can take the "update.rb" script inside Plugins, change the url of download (currently pointing to Pokémon Workshop) & use Game_Version instead of PSDK_Version. (You have to update the Game_Version constant each time you make an update).

>>37995271Post something, then.
Finally made my first actual progress in a month, and it was in the form of actually getting scripts to work mostly correctly. Now I just need to fix the part where the player can technically walk to the second gym without the pokedex or running shoes.
>>37996626Have an NPC block the path until you get a Pokedex.
>>37996626Instead of NPC roadblocks just have the prof hand out both of those items as soon as the player gets their first mon.
>>37996652I mean, yeah. Just a matter of actually implementing that and picking a good spot.
>>37996747I'm trying to not mess with the details of any given script too much. My last few attempts at romhacking ended in a broken mess with weeks of work wasted due to trying to restructure things too heavily/incorrectly.
Are there any template games for PSDK? I want to try it out but I don't think I could build games from the ground up.Any aesthetic tilesets you would recommend?
>>37998118Use the FireRed in RPG Maker engine. https://reliccastle.com/resources/193/ You can copy & paste Essentials maps over to SDK.
>>37998174So do all essential resources work for PSDK?
>>37998242Graphics, Maps, and Audio, yes. Scripts don't work the same way but the wiki is super in-depth.
Im sorry if this is not the right thread for this but can someone please help me? I wanted to play Polished Crystal on my Samsung and bought Gbc.Emu and downloaded both original crystal and Polished roms but i cant get any of them to work. I have a pc available if needed.Ill be arround if i havent given enough details.Explaining video links would be appreciated if you cba.Im 25 btw and understand this should be doable for a child to google. Thanks
>>37999299You probably downloaded patches but didn't apply them to a Crystal ROM. polishedcrystal-master.zip in particular is just Polished source code that needs to be compiled to be useful to you. Just use this site.https://gbahacks.blogspot.com/p/pokemon-rom-hack-list.html

Can I have more than 999 maps on PSDK?Fucking RPG Maker cancer limits you to 999, how would that work on PSDK?
>>38004074https://forum.chaos-project.com/index.php?topic=1634.0I found this solution, but how do I make it compatible with PSDK?
>>38004174>>38004074pls save me Nuri Yuri, I almost died when I tried to create the 1000th map and it told me it had a limit
I want to try pokeemerald/pokeruby is there any good tutorial to start?
>>38004074>>38004174>>38004210PSDK replacing not just Essentials but also RPG Maker can't come soon enough
>>38003299>Netplay is a thing on most emulators, I would imagine.When it comes to the pokémon games? HAHAHAHAHA.... No.The 3DS games can be played online thanks to Citra, but anything older is way tougher.GB and GBC? No.GBA? VBA Link and Hamachi.NDS? You'll need a pretty old version of Desmume and WinPCap, not to mention you also need to access an unofficial WFC implementation like AltWFC.Thankfully, the Pokémon Games have a dedicated service called "Pokémon Classic Network" made by fans, for fans.http://pkmnclassic.net/Then there's Battle Revolution on Dolphin which probably works too through the Wiimmfi service, but>Playing BR in 2019

I think I'm going to start out my first ever hack this week with a modest gen 2 rework to get my feet wet.Time to have no clue what I'm doing and fail spectacularly.
Anyone got a PSDK project that's already styled to look like a Gen 2 game? Asking for a friend... he has no idea how to edit the GUI
>>38004796>Battle RevolutionThe only way to use your own Pokemon is through a DS wifi connection, and I don't think Dolphin supports that.
Which rom hack has the most content in it? I don't really know anything about Pokemon rom hacks, but is there any that combines several regions together? Baring that how about the most added content?
>>38004796>GB and GBC?RetroArch.
>>38004210I tried to break the RMXP limit, it just removed the map > 999 when I opened the project.I think you should merge some home maps together to get more map ids. (You'll have to wait for the text_event system before being able to have more than 1000 maps, otherwise we can make some modifications in the MapLinker script to load maps from another directory).
>>38006966Can't you use rental pokémon like in Stadium?All the more reason to avoid it desu.
>>38006997>GB and GBC>RetroArchNo.https://docs.libretro.com/guides/netplay-faq/#can-i-play-gb-gbc-gba-psp-3ds-games-with-multiple-people-via-retroarch-netplay
>>38004827>eighteen towns not counting postgamedude
>>38007322What? That's only like 3 more than Kanto has.
>>38007392Kanto only had 10 towns.
>>38007470Oh, so it does.It's still not that many, Hoenn had 16, Sinnoh had 15, and Unova had 18.
>>38007369Have you tried it yourself? Because I couldn't find any proof of working GB/GBC netplay from one PC to another (i.e 2 people from 2 different countries or 2 different parts of a same country trying to battle or trade pokémon).The article might be talking about the 2 instances in 1 PC type of linking. You don't even need RA for that, the standalone version of TGB Dual also has that capability.
>>38007505>Hoenn had 16 townsno it didn't, it only had 6
>>38007573>City=/TownStop being autistic. They're talking from a map stand point.

Does it matter if I use 32x32 vs 64x64?
>>38007654Every pokemon city has less than 50 people in it, so they're actually fucking hamlets or something.
>>38008393Fucking hamlets. When will they learn?
>>37958205That Medicham though.
>>38006988doesn't look like it, but everyone makes a big deal about the Crystal disassembly maybe someone will add in Hoenn and Sinnoh someday
>>38007000Have you looked at https://forum.chaos-project.com/index.php?topic=1634.0?Or maybe if there are 2 .rxprog files? One edits maps 0-999, and the other edits maps inside a folder ?
>>380088632 or more .rxprog files, one for each directory...the maps can be linked with a scriptlike, PSDK_teleport($subdirectoryname, $mapnumber, $xpos, $ypos)

>>38005644Some guy on the discord was working on a gen 2 UI a while ago, but I don't know what happened to him.
Working on a personal project that adds some of the cut Betamons to Crystal, how do their stats and such look to you guys? Trying to keep them balanced in Gen 1-2 style, before power creep was a big thing.
>>38010060>shivfurI love that name. I called it Shifur in my hack.
For someone terrible at scripting, whats some simple ways to make Happiness play a larger role in battle? Ideally, decreasing/increasing accuracy and/or speed. This is for a hobby project in Essentials.
>>38010576If I could suck my own dick I'd also tell everyone
>>38010060>PangshiI've seen this somewhere... blue
>>38010060I love the names Poppycroc and Ladybuh, I dunno about Shivur and Burserker though. There's something charming about a pokemon just being named Wolfman, and Warwolf is a 10/10 name already
>>38008863I have looked about that, it seems to be a pretty simple solution but there's a huge matter :The map linking system. If you use a "disc" like system there's no way the MapLinker know the map 001 from disc 2 is linked to the map 002 from disc 1 it'll load the map 002 from disc 2.2 .rxproj folder can be a solution but we need to edit Ruby Host (the scripts are in ruby so it's not that hard) to detect the maps from Project 1 & 2.With Tiled the problem doesn't exist but you have to edit the events and actually the only way to do that is to use RPG Maker XP so you won't see the map that have an id > 999.I think we should make a script that allow to swap the maps from 0~999 with the map from 1000~1999. For the map linking we can hard-code the maplinks since it's stored in a global variable. It's just a feature we need to take time on.If you still want to use the Disc System, here's the load Map script you'll have to add (I adapated it for you).Come back to me if you have issue with the game release (I'm on discord).module Yuki module MapLinker # Load the data of a map (with some optimizations) # @param map_id [Integer] the id of the Map # @return [RPG::Map] def load_map_data(map_id) return DefaultMap if map_id == 0 return @last_map if map_id == @last_map_id if (link_data = @link_data) # Une des map linké return @north_data if map_id == link_data return @east_data if map_id == link_data return @sud_data if map_id == link_data return @west_data if map_id == link_data end return load_data(format('Data/%sMap%03d.rxdata', $game_system.disc, map_id)) rescue StandardError return RPG::Map.new(20, 15) end endend
>>38010060>ToxinPoison type is a thing ya know?
>>38010060Will you be including all unused mon too?Including Baby Meowth? ...Plz.
>>38008817Right, so what does have the most content then?
>>38010552New type added, Crystal lets you do it really easily.>>38011143The romhack is mostly for personal use, I'm programming and planning out the Pokemon, but it's mostly just to have the assets and plans, and build up my skill working with the Crystal Disassembly. Until people break the Move and Pokemon limit it's not something big to look forward to. That said, those are just the betamons that are completely new, I'm also testing out a good chunk of the babies and evos to bring back (some designs are also retooled as different forms, like Porygon 2, Girafarig, and Murkrow).One of the ones that I hadn't planned on adding until someone here made a sprite for it was the Lickitung evolution, Tungtyde. It's a Normal/Water with the ability Slobber, which makes every contact move it uses lower the opponent's Speed by 1 stage.>>38010906I'm just a big fan of Pokemon names that work as clever puns, Wolfman and Warwolf just seemed unfitting to me.>>38011105I renamed a few of the types because they bugged my autism, it's effectively the same type though I have made some changes to the type chart to balance it a bit (Currently Water is weak to Poison, Ice resists Water and Flying, and Fairy no longer resists Bug. Still experimenting with Ice and Fairy's type match ups though).
>>37963231Because those are free advertising for the official games. If they get you interested in Pokémon then the only “legitimate” way to fulfill that interest is with Nintendo’s games - they win when it comes to fan parodies, music, cartoons, etc. They lose whenever something comes out that could compete with their money maker. If someone started to make a Pokémon anime that was genuinely a quality anime, it would be shit down, because that has potential as a competitor. A parody video doesn’t
>>37967188Visually extremely boring >>37968100
>>38011228>TungtydeThis is also a really good name.
>>38011083I wonder if there's just a way to patch the 999 limit from RPG Maker XP... because it's going to become increasingly complicated to work with as we approach the 999 limit for everything (Pokémon, items, maps)also, I tried the scripts but I am too much of a brainlet to make them work together, so I'll just wait until PSDK has an official way to do it... thanks for taking note of the issue
Does it make any sense to add regional forms AND retype some Pokémon that need to be buffed?
>>38012105Not as much. Might be confusing to do both at once.
>>38012105Not doing both.If you make Golduck part Psychic but also add a regional that give it Steel type, they're redundant.
>>38011909Since RMXP is using a lot of ruby script command through the RGSS DLL we can probably trick it to support more than 999 Maps but I don't really know. I'll try to see what RMXP does with that script command using Cheat Engine.
>>38012173I think the biggest problem is that it wants the map to be Map###, so you would need to somehow edit that... maybe to M######
>>38012212sprintf("Map%03d.rxdata", 1024) => Map1024.rxdataI don't think it's an issue
>>38012164They wouldn’t be on the same Pokémon, both would just exist on different Pokémon the region
>>38006988Some mexicano rom hacks have multiple regions, namely the Cloud White seriesTheir quality is dodgy, however
>Region is getting colder and soon will be unliveable for humans>”Villains” want to catch legendary to make the region warmer>Doing this will kill off all the Pokémon in the region>Player has to decide to help or defeat the “evil” team in the endThoughts on this?
>>38013732Meant most not all
>>38013732If I wanted hamfisted moral "dilemmas" I'd just play Reborn.
>>38013874>>38013906Alright, gonna stick with my more grounded idea

Found this at local game shop
>>38016018It's 2020. There's no reason to cram 20 maps together into 1 because some proprietary developer set up an artificial limit at '999' for no reason whatsoever other than selling you the version with a '1999' limit at a higher price (because memory sure as hell is not an issue)
>>38017114So..? Just because there are no limits doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't optimize your project.That's basically the exact reason why Essentials has performance issues, or why there's many fangames out eating 1 fucking GB of data for seemingly no reason, and it sucks balls.What a disgusting community.
>>38017220Don't talk about things you don't understand, retard.Essentials has issues even if your project has 1 nearly-empty map. The problem is that it uses deprecated libraries.Alchemist has 1 GB of data because 830 MB are audio files. All the 600+ maps together are only 15 MB. The rest is graphic files (360 MB)Cramming 20 maps into 1 is not optimizing. It's the absolute opposite. You're loading 20 maps and only using 1. Having each place in a separate map is the most optimal.The only disgusting thing in the community are the morons like you that talk out of their ass without understanding absolutely anything.
Why the fuck would a Pokemon game need 1000 maps in the first place?Big games like Prism only use about 500 maps and even with that some people thought it was still too massive.
>>38017389>Alchemist has 1 GB of data because 830 MB are audio files.sweet jesus
>>38017389>Don't talk about things you don't understand, retard.Right back at you, dumbass.>Essentials has issues even if your project has 1 nearly-empty map. The problem is that it uses deprecated libraries.That's engine-wise and specifically in the performance department. It's also absolutely nothing new.It's also an issue born out of Maruno's laziness and unwillingness to do something about it.If you want to add laziness to the list of problems that Essentials has, so be it.>>The lack of optimization and careless bloating on the fangame makers' side is one of the issues Essentials has>Alchemist has 1 GB of data because 830 MB are audio files.Thanks for proving my point, you disgusting mouthbreather.>Cramming 20 maps into 1 is not optimizing. It's the absolute opposite. You're loading 20 maps and only using 1. Having each place in a separate map is the most optimal.And your point is? I'm talking about bloating, that is, the retarded desire of add a fuckton of content instead of doing something more compact and of higher quality.If you need 999 maps to make a pokémon fangame, you're probably doing something very, very, VERY wrong.(Then again, I do understand that Essentials games have to make many small individual maps because of its previously mentioned performance issues. Other engines don't have this issue, and neither does ROM Hacking.)>The only disgusting thing in the community are the morons like you that talk out of their ass without understanding absolutely anything.The irony.Now kill your fucking self, pathetic shill.
Updated my maps and added another section, still very new to mapping, looking for feedback.
>>38017883Oh yea, i'm planning on adding a cobweb ridden Ariados forest above the bottom part. And yes, i see the weird connection there next to the bridge, it will be fixed.
>>38017883I really like it
>>38017883is this a ROM hack?
>>38017883Pic related aside, it looks pretty good Anon.
>>38018228Thanks! I noticed those after editing the images together, they have been fixed, together with the weird area next to the big bridge.
As a shit-for-brains consumer and not developer of these romhacks- why do people like to use Essentials despite the issues people have playing Essential-made games?Is it relatively easier to develop a fangame using Essentials as opposed to romhacking?
>>38018284Essentials is idiot-proof for most applications, and doesn't need to conform to hardware/emulator limitations.
>>38018284>>38018289Gladly, SDK is no different in that regard and it doesn't have the issues that Essentials does either.Once the batlte engine is done, there will be 0 reason to use Essentials anymore.
Which romhack is your favourite to nuzlocke?
>>38018313Nuzlockes are gay and bad and so is everyone who does them.

I need Pokémon - Crystal Version (UE) (V1.0) [C][!].gbc(md5: 9f2922b235a5eeb78d65594e82ef5dde)to play Polished Crystal without the game crashing but i can´t find it anywhere.It seems that everyone at GitHub has used this as the original ROM, but leaves no references where to download it. Anyone here got a clue?
>>38018935I´m on an android btw so .rtc doesnt work out
>>38018935>It seems that everyone at GitHub has used this as the original ROMNo, everyone at Github compiled the Polished Crystal ROM by themselves directly because they're not tech iliterates.https://github.com/Rangi42/polishedcrystal/blob/master/INSTALL.mdCheck the Emugen Wiki btw.
>>38018186what a shame
>>38019645Why? I'm still very new here, what's the problem with it?
>>38019715Essentials is easier to develop games with, but its awful to play as a consumer. Generally speaking, Essentials devs use it to lighten the burden on themselves but not their audience.
