There is still interest in Gen I, but attention has shifted more towards Gen II, both because we're slowly exhausting Gen I's pool of glitches, and because of Gen II being released on VC.

Also, yeah, you should definitely learn GBz80. I suggest taking a look at awesome-gbdev.

Don't. Just... don't buy it. It's a bad remake, honestly.
The musics have not only been remade with a better quality, but also given extra length - which is COMPLETELY different from the rest of the song, and really threw me off.
The graphics upgrade is... rather plain, still using the SAME texture-based engine from Dream Team then Paper Jam. And also the same sprites and a TON of identical animations from Mario and Luigi. Wee. If you wanna see these sprites, I'd recommend instead buying Dream Team (6/10, awfully full of tutorials/speedbumps) or Paper Jam (10/10, rip 4th wall).
The added "Bowser's Minions" crap is basically a shovelware grinding-based mobile game. Unfun and useless.
The game is WAY easier than Superstar Saga due to the features from Paper Jam being ported over. If you like challenge... nnope.
Really, I think it's a better idea to buy the original cartridge off eBay. And a GBA, if you don't have one. It'll cost less, for an experience at least as good.

On the other hand, when you have money, you should DEFINITELY buy Dream Team or Paper Jam.
Paper Jam is made for people who have played Dream Team - a lot of the tutorials are skipped because they are redundant with Dream Team, but you can still check them out in the in-game Guide. IT'S ALSO FEATURING PAPER MARIO, WOOHOOOOOOOOOO
Both Dream Team and Paper Jam have a very enjoyable soundtrack (Paper Jam being the better one imo).

Also, I don't know what bothered you in PiT, but I believe it won't in the later games. Bowser's Inside Story improved a lot, and imo was a "definitive" DS version. They changed quite a lot of things in the 3DS versions, but imo the games are still good.
No, the user can release the A button at any moment. What matters is the D-Pad.
This doesn't, and as I said,
(Note : if the D-Pad is already held when the setup is ran, it will fail.)
It's unnecessary, all that's required it to wake up as soon as the user presses a button.

Megalo Strike Back
Artist : Toby Fox
Album : I Miss You - EarthBound 2012

Basically listening to the entire album, too. Ninefield is rad.
TheZZAZZGlitch made a pretty cool memory editor, which nicely fits in 200 bytes. You can check it out in this video.
Given that the setup's duration basically depends on its length, I made a "1.1" version, which retains the same functionality, but fits it only 173 bytes !

Here is the byte list :
Note that you will need to start with 173 X Accuracies instead of 200.

If you want to check out the source, which is even more messy (but also more commented) than the original :
A CartSwap setup had been made (by Cryo, IIRC), which used the joypad to wake up the Game Boy. It did this, plus fillers :
Code: [Select]
ld a, $20 ; Select dpad
ldh [$FF00], a
ld a, $10 ; Joypad interrupt
ldh [$FFFF], a
stop ; $10, makes the Game Boy "deep sleep" until an interrupt occurs
XX ; Any byte
xor a
ld [$FF0F], a
inc a
ld [$FFFF], a
halt ; Wait for a VBlank interrupt, this helps stabilize the state

The user should simply run the code, swap carts, and press the D-Pad.
(Note : if the D-Pad is already held when the setup is ran, it will fail.)

I played all of them, though to different extents.

Let's be clear : Superstar Saga DX is a BAD remake. You'd be better playing the GBA version, as lacking of pixels as it is.
With that out of the way.

I played a small chunk of Superstar Saga on my 3DS (using CFW), and I really like it so far, although it promises much more.

I finished Partners in Time, and honestly it's a really good game. Bosses, music, ambience, everything. It's got everything. I wasn't such a big fan of that ambience, with the gloomy and dark story, but I have to admit it's great, and man. Luigi saved 'em all.

I really, really enjoyed Bowser's Inside Story, although I've heard it being tossed aside in favor of PiT. Oh well. The bosses are of the classical tactical kind with the bros, but with Bowser, you're much more into packing the biggest punches you can until, well... lol.

Dream Team... no. It's bad. Using sprites on the DS ? Ok. Using sprites on the 3DS ? Ok... but give them more directions, this is a circle pad, dammit ! That's the point of 3D models, they can be animated fluidly... at least keep up with that... oh well. The music was average, or below, though there are some very good pieces. The gameplay is not particularly interesting, and the story... I find it rather plain.

Paper Jam Bros. was a *blast* to play. I love Paper Mario, and I really liked this cross-over, also for its irony with itself and the M&L franchise. The fourth wall... let's not evoke that late fella xP

Finally, I really don't like Superstar Saga DX. Just compare Come On! from Paper Jam (is real gud), and from SSDX (it's... weirdly extended). Things like that ; they are minor, but really do a disservice to the game.

I don't know if they did, but they pressed YouTube to block the video on copyright grounds.

Start at D2F6, and set everything to zero. This will remove all Pokémon from your Pokédex, including Pikachu.
You can set these back after you obtain the parcel.

You mean you have 6 Pokémon in the Pokédex ?

Maybe soon. I didn't plan an ounce of anything scenario-like, so I have no idea what to do :3
