Gen III - Emerald Pokémon CrystalDust

Pokémon CrystalDust
another hack from DoMoreAwesome Games

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.
What you need to patch this to

Based off of Pokémon Emerald (U)
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
Get people to play

Screenshots in motion

How far can you go?

Beta 2: Finished
Almost everything in Johto and some parts of Kanto

Beta 3: Planned
Finishing the Kanto quest

Holy crap, we won something?

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.

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.

Truly, CrystalDust's accuracy as a remake is quite impecable, definitely the aspect that I love the most too. I've been lately replaying it a little bit and I had a blast, no dialogue or event felt unfitting, it was as if GF developed the remake themselves.
I seriously can't wait to see what Diego has in store for us all once Pokeemerald reaches a usable state :love:
Man, I'm so glad to see that Crystal Dust has moved here. It gives me a heck ton of hope that this hack will not be discontinued. Just gotta pray that the emerald disassembly comes along well.
