I'm making the 2017 boot screen and I decided to try antialiasing the font. It looks way more readable and it fits in 16 colors. Do you think it looks better, too? Shall I go for it?
Kazuno Leah
Looks infinitely better, go for it

I'm considering dropping PewterWhite altogether in Beta 4. If it wasn't obvious, I actually manually "create" it from ObsidianBlack right before I release it and despite my detailed list, there's alwa...

Or put them in not so obvious locations

Once ObsidianBlack is finished, then you should go and convert it into PewterWhite (assuming you still want to do the two-game thing). For development purposes, I don't really know why you'd go through the hassle.

Speaking of ASM routines I made today, I made the trainer card load in a different set of badges (both tileset + flags) if you're not on the Kanto map, so badges officially won't be key items anymore.

I finally got off my lazy butt and made the four world maps use different separate tilesets. Any comments on these two maps? I'm about to insert them.

Tried writing a shader. Instructions unclear, got dick stuck in GPU. Send help.

I want to buy it and hang it on my wall

I'm experimenting with cover art. This is what I've put together so far (it's high quality, yet it remains faithful to classic GBA box art). How'd I do? (Warning: biggish image, decided against upload...

I think you should increase the earnings for both games, way too low to be efficient when you can just grind out $ and buy the coins at a faster rate.
Telinc1
Will do. Only thing which worries me is you can buy money for coins, too, so if the earnings are too big, you can get a ton of money easily. Maybe about 8 or 10 coins for the 50/50 game? The player can pick the amount on Blackjack, maybe do 6/8/10/15? That seems reasonable to me.
Aizawa
Assuming you have Vs. Seeker I don't think fast cash farming should be a big concern. I'd just focus on making it fun for players, personally.

I have succeeded at creating Blackjack within Pokemon. That 2 kB script was totally worth it. Video soon.

Pokémon with blackjack and hookers confirmed?
Telinc1
Funny thing is, you'll get something similar to hookers (gays to be exact) in the after game.
Kazuno Leah
I am really curious as to how gays and hookers are in any way related
Telinc1
They, uh, both have, like, unusual sex and uh... No idea, actually.

So I seriously half implemented DRM in this thing.

Now the ROM contains (in seemingly random locations) a specific string and its CRC32 hash. Upon loading, the game will calculate the hash of the strin...

SO for those that aren't tech savvy, what's the process?
LucasThePlatinumMaster
If the game is modified from the original, the GBA will go night-night.
Telinc1
Not really, just if somebody removes my name. To prevent plagiarism.
Banjora Marxvile
OK, I mean I get why you'd do that to some extent but... OK

New map! Stepping on those weird-looking tiles will paralyze your entire party (sans electric and ground types). The guy closest to the entrance sells you Cheri Berries in bulk.

You should mod the stair tiles to be double-wide without that part in the middle.

Here comes another attempt at making Flan look less like Silver!

Many people have reported a bug right after you go through the Earth Tower. Does anyone happen to have a save file I can test it with?

Never mind, I did it the save file from my mobile playthrough.

That one time when you want to script a certain event and aren't in the mood to do anything before it. Darn it Zap Cave, w u no make yourself? I want to make the nuclear reactor event already.

Time to start working on Beta 4. Two new cities, two new routes, two new dungeons and two new Team Rocket events. It's gonna be a fun ride.
Pokémon ObsidianBlack Ver
Beta 3.0 is ready! I don't have time right now to release on PokéCommunity, so I guess you get an early release! (go to the project page and look at the menu on the right)
