Default Emerald hack: Pokémon CrystalDust [BETA 2 RELEASED!!!]

Pokémon CrystalDust

another hack from DoMoreAwesome Games

Story:

We've been here before, haven't we?

Once again, you're put back into the shoes of either Gold or Kris, and sent on your way across the Johto region. With the most accurate scripts, text, features, and everything else compared to other remakes, you can nostalgically relive your past GBC memories and experiences in full-on GBA style on your way to becoming a Pokémon master.

Base:

What you need to patch this to

Based off of Pokémon Emerald (U)

Features:

Why people want to play this and not Liquid Crystal some other remake

  • Complete recreation of almost everything imaginable; sprites, sound, maps, events, and text all are almost perfect copies of their GBC counterparts, only upgraded
  • May be based off of Emerald, but most things are taken from FireRed, including sprites, tiles, battle graphics, font, animations, ...
  • Day/Night system; remade entirely from scratch and now supports light-up windows!
  • More ASM hacks than I can count; even little things like Mom on the Pokégear have been hacked to make them Crystal-accurate
  • Scripts are made to the best of my ability; no more exclamation mark without the sound!
  • No sound glitches; this hack uses the right free space, and uses the built-in FR voicegroups

Screenshots:

Get people to play




















Videos:

Screenshots in motion


Progress:

How far can you go?

Beta 2:

Finished
Almost everything in Johto and some parts of Kanto

Beta 3:

Planned
Finishing the Kanto quest


Awards:

Holy crap, we won something?





Bugs/Glitches/Oddities:

What people don't want

When flying to the Lake of Rage after defeating the Red Gyarados but before talking to Lance, the animation messes up a bit, making you appear under Lance for a split second.

Credits:

Who helped, and with what
Project Platinum (dead remake project) - Some tiles, sprites, and music
MrAPT1 - Music, more music, even more music, and sprites
Jambo51 - His awesome music hacks
Clonex25 and Magnius - GSC music remixes; also, voicegroup and looping documents
Jilly Shears - Even more music! CrystalDust has a lot of music.
Linkandzelda - Support
blase005 - Graphics galore, including the intro and title screen
shiny quagsire - That amazing intro he made

If I forgot anything/anyone, please post and I will definitely fix it. But then again, if I missed someone, they're probably in the in-game credits anyways.

All patches, old and new, can be downloaded at DoMoreAweso.me.

Really great job on this, diego. I'm impressed with your focus on remaining true to G/S/C, and also with how much you have complete (up to Kanto and all).

Wow, Diego. This is very well done and has a nice lack of glitches! And by the way, the title screen looks pretty boss.

Played this game before, I think this should be considered a cool Crystal remake (only GBA hack here right next to Liquid Crystal LOL) and the PokéGear feature is TOTALLY hype!
This hack is almost good as another hack I know, Shining Opal.

Just downloaded this a few minutes ago. I'm in Violet City right now, and I have to say that I'm impressed by how far you've gone to stay faithful to the original games. The effort really shows.

Also, its nice to see those old New Bark Town houses I made getting some use. A lot of the stuff I made for Acanthite is unused now that they've upgraded to more Gen IV-looking stuff. (Well, some of it pops up here and there because it got included in that mega tile sheet). But nice to see them in a hack that gets a lot of attention.

Anyway, keep up the good work. Looking forward to continuing my journey tomorrow.

Sorry, but it probably won't be for quite some time.

Oh, I'm using some of your resources? I didn't know who the creator was. I'll add you in to the credits for the next release.

Now that that's out of the way, it's time for what you've all been waiting patiently for.
(also, new [really old but I just found it again] update CSS!)
Intro and Bag Update - 10/14/2013


This has been a long time in the making, mainly because of the bag. The intro actually took shorter to make than the bag. Can you believe it?

Anyways, new features in this patch include:

  • A whole slew of bugfixes!
  • A COMPLETELY NEW INTRO, made by shiny quagsire!
  • The bag interface completely ported over from FireRed!
  • A new Youngster encounter theme from tonti!
  • A new sprite for the Medium!
  • And more? I think so, maybe.

Download it, as per usual, from the link in the first post!

Cool, thanks for adding me. I misread the credits at first- I guess "Project Platinum" and the "And Magnius" line above it somehow ran together and I read "Project Acanthite" so I assumed I was already somewhat credited. It was late when I downloaded it. lol.

Anyway, gonna check out this new intro and bag update you posted. Sounds nice.

Also, I found a possible bug in Violet City. Is there supposed to be a random survey that comes up when you talk to a headbutt tree near that building?
