Get a Fire Red Squirrel rom and using a UPS patcher, apply the UPS patch file onto a clean Fire Red rom.

~Beta 11~
In terms of content, Beta 11 has: Kanto Region, Orange Archipelago, Sevii Islands, Mirage Island and a bit of the Hoenn Region.

~Beta 13~
Below is the latest Beta 13 patch (June 25, 2018).
This beta officially ends after winning the Kanto Region's Pokémon League.
Download: http://www.mediafire.com/file/hkym53km70gv8hi/Beta 13 Part 2F.ups

~Real Time Clock Fix~
In certain emulators (more specifically mGBA), the RTC will not work and the In-Game Clock will remain stuck in 12:00 / 12pm.
In order to fix that, you must apply the patch created by Endrift (the developer of mGBA) to your ROM.

There's 2 versions, a .ips patch and a .ups patch. Both are the same so use whichever you prefer.
.ips patches can be applied using an IPS Patcher like Lunar IPS

This is a list of the bugs already found in the upcoming Beta 13 Part 2 and their current status.
Please check it out before reporting a bug in the Beta 13 Part 1.

In this section you can find guides written by the Players of Pokémon Adventure - Red Chapter.

I'm putting this one in a spoiler because it might be a little bit too much if you're not into any kind of Gore.

Cool Updates, can't wait for the Orange Arc.
Well, Beta 13 will only cover the whole Kanto region with its story and bonus chapters.
Other regions such as the Orange Archipelago, Orre, Hoenn, etc., won't be on this very ROM, due to space issues if I remember correctly.
If I'm actually mistaken, please correct me Lunos. :)

Other regions such as the Orange Archipelago, Orre, Hoenn, etc., won't be on this very ROM, due to space issues if I remember correctly.
Nope, that's incorrect. Aethestode will develop the ROM Hack in one same ROM until he runs out of space. If he actually does run out of space, then he'll make a 2nd ROM to which people will be able to import their savefiles and resume their playthrough, or at least that's the plan, if I recall correctly.
And how you think he is gonna make a 2nd ROM where save file will be importable? Cause you don't know in which place or city or island player will save the game. In that case, if map banks number don't match, well there will be lot of bugs. And if you want to match map banks number, you'll have to make regions of 1st ROM again. Correct me if I'm wrong
You are. All the hacker would have to do is warp the player to a map that they intend on keeping the same and then force a save. Then, the player can move the save to the new ROM and continue. You would only need to keep one map the same in this case, and it need not be a complicated one.

hmm...that's a good idea. Although I was kinda expecting that Aethestode will find a way to remove the space limit. But your method will work too, I guess.
There is no way to "remove the space limit". I'm not entirely sure about it, but I think that to run a GBA ROM File bigger than 32 MBs, you'd need a custom GBA Emulator that is able to read it. GBA ROM Files are supposed to have a maximun of 32 MBs of data, anything else goes beyond the console's scope.

If I'm correct, such a thing would kill compatibility with other platforms unless said custom emulator was ported to them too, that would kill one of the appealing points that the GBA has: The fact that you can emulate it almost anywhere nowadays.

ON: Freshly baked small update, enjoy.

The issue with the PC Boxes selection's palette is a side effect of the new palettes for the new pokémon icons​
