      I was looking at your Missingno info. Do you know more about why the Old Man trick doesn't work in Japanese games?
      Surfing on Cinnabar Island causes no wild Pokemon, but I've yet to see an analysis of the tile behavior change. Or related things like differences in how the player's name is stored (if any).

        I have never checked the japanese games so I can't really tell you much. The glitch (water tile mismatch) could've been introduced when the english version was made instead of being native to the original japanese games.

      Excelente trabajo el que hiciste con Pokémon Pyrite, tienes pensado hacer algo igual con juegos más modernos de Poke? :]

      hi, for your RBY research post, does it say anything about the faint check for the player when Explosion/Selfdestruct is used? I can't seem to find it. We're discussing Self-KO clause, so we are wondering if there ever is a mechanical draw.

        only difference is that player who uses explosion shows all pokemon from both players fainted (in the results screen), while player who took the explosion shows the exploder user's pokeball as alive

      Hey crystal, I love the research you've done for the max DV Coin Case exploit in G/S, and I've asked before about specific DV spreads for Hidden Power, but I remember not understanding your explanation on it. Could you give me an example of what my PC should look like to get a HP Bug/Water in gen 2 (plus max stat EXP)?
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        That's more complex because you just can't write the same value into all addresses. I suggest you first do the trick exactly like shown in the video (thus maxing DVs and stat exp), and then use the coin case as a memory editor setup (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffZjCabeNr4) to write custom values into the DV addresses (for first party Pokemon: addresses D040 and D041).

        For example, if I remember correctly, HP bug requires 13/13/15/15 DVs, so you need to write DD at D040 and FF at D041, where DD corresponds to hexadecimal of 13/13 and FF corresponds to hexadecimal of 15/15.

        In short, set up your items and party as shown in the perfect DVs and EVs video and execute the trick. Then set up your items and party as shown in the "memory editor" video and execute it twice, each time with the corresponding Box 9 name to match D040DD and D041FF respectively. Please, what the video linked above and get back to me if there's something you have trouble understanding.

      Oye Crystal, puede ser que algunos Pokemon no puedan salir Shinies en ciertas rutas/cuevas en el Pyrite? Estuve entrenando en la Victory Road y me encontré 2 Golem, 1 Rhydon y Steelix Shinies. Pero Golbat ni uno, fue casualidad o es que lo hiciste asi? Porque en Ruta 1 tampoco me salió ninguno y estuve un buen rato.
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        no, todos los pokemon salvajes tienen las mismas posibilidades de aparecer shinies.

        Oh just asking. I thought you'd find the glitches they use interesting
        Oct 18, 2015
      3. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        yeah I guess I'm more or less aware of the glitches they use. They are mostly useful "exploits" of glitches that were already known, so to speak.

      Hola Crystal, estaba hablando con algunos jugadores que están probando tu hack y me ha parecido genial que hayas hecho ese trabajo titánico para traernos un juego duro de roer. Por ello me gustaría darle publicidad jugándolo en mi canal para extenderlo al menos por mi público español, y me gustaría saber si te parece bien antes de comenzar el capítulo 1. Muchas gracias por traernos el juegazo y un saludo :)
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        Eso sería genial :D Creo que voy a disfrutar viendo a alguien jugarlo, a fin de cuentas cuando haces un proyecto de este tipo siempre resulta gratificante leer que los jugadores lo disfrutan y sería mas a aún si ademas puedo verlo. Por ello gracias si decides jugarlo :)

        Getting outsped by the NPC's Pokemon is something I'm not used to...and I like it. Bugzy was absolutely brutal.

        The EV system is awesome so far. Love how there's less fodder and more stuff that can actually kill you. Just got to Goldenrod and am fearing that Miltank...I'm also imagining Karen's Umbreon is going to such to face, as is Lance's Aerodactyl.

        I'm definitely enjoying playing through and figuring out some stuff myself (like when stuff evolve) too. Funny thing is that it seems Zubat is the most useful Pokemon early game by far, at least from my experience.

        I do have some feedback on the levels though. I feel it goes too fast. Already hitting the 30s by the time you get to Goldenrod. That's three gyms ahead bad on the normal game. Wonder how high the latter guns are... The level cap was a good idea, but I do think EXP is too plentiful, especially with the expanded enemy teams. Once the better moves roll in, it'll get easier by a lot (like imagine if you didn't bump the levels up from the normal games but still edited the moves/evolutions, that would be even harder).

        Can't wait to progress further. This is loads of fun. Nice job on the mods to level up moves and evolutions. I really haven't done that many hard mods/hacks, but I feel I can say that this sets the bar high.

        Thanks for the feedback. Looking back, I took the route of delaying the evolution and learning moves levels (as well as the TM locations etc) rather than decreasing the experience formula. I probably could've done it the other way around but I still like how the level curve hits levels close to 100 in the very end of the game.

        Anyway, I tried to make it so that you start getting and learning the better moves during around the same points of the adventure as in the original game. I ran into issue that the g/s/c games were sort of designed to culminate in the johto league, in the sense that you go through the kanto part with pretty much the same options (in terms of powerful pokemon and movesets) as in the last part of johto. So it indeed was not easy to keep the difficulty level through kanto without just overleveling the enemy Pokemon. It's possible that you feel the game gets slightly easier as you progress because of this, especially after then E4.

      After the crit step, the resulting damage in RBY/GSC is stored in 16-bits right?
      If so I may have found the most uneventful overflow possible involving 255 atk cloyster and a -6 min def lvl 5 chansey on a critical hit explosion
      it'd end up killing chansey whether it overflowed or not :D
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        interestingly, ohko moves with stab or being super effective also overflow in rby, e.g. rhydon's fissure becoming (65535 + (65535/2)) mod 65536 due to stab

      You should fix the Checksum at 0x14E so some emulators don't display a warning about the ROM checksum being wrong :P

      Felicidades por acabar el hackrom, me enteré de que lo estabas haciendo un par de semanas antes de que lo sacaras y ahora que lo estoy jugando, lo encuentro una pasada y se nota el aumento de dificultad.
      Por cierto, en la batalla contra Urkio en "Cianwood City", perdí porque no me esperaba la lucha delante del Gym, pero pasé por delante luego para reluchar contra él y no se activaba el evento de nuevo.
      1. xJoelituh
        xJoelituh
        ¿Tiene que pasar así o se te pasó?

        PD: El ratio de shiny actual es un poco bastada, me he encontrado bastantes y aun no he llegado ni a Kanto lol
        Jul 1, 2015

        Crystal_
        Gracias :)

        Si pierdes contra Urkio no vuelve a aparecer, eso ocurre asi tambien en crystal con Eusine.

        El ratio de shinys es 1/256, es posible que hayas tenido tambien algo de suerte.
        Jul 1, 2015

      hey crystal_, your rom hack looks really good. i had actually heard of it/seen the thread for it like a year and a half ago, cool to see that it's finally complete lol

      i'm definitely going to play it if i can figure out how to get a GBC emulator on my iphone without jailbreaking or whatever (shouldn't be too hard i hope)
      1. Crystal_

        nice, good luck with that :)
