RotomDex text Freeze/Crash on Saving
« on: March 03, 2017, 12:05:12 pm »
So I have a tendency to save my game while in the Hau'oli City lottery building and every time the RotomDex speaks, I wait for it to stop due to how distracting it is if I interrupt it and let it loop.

Well I got in a rush today because I wanted to pick up Mewtwo's mega stones, and I discovered a game freeze with this. If you try to save the game while the RotomDex is still talking on the bottom (text still printing), the game immediately freezes. I did it on both of my games while doing the lottery corner (which requires you to save). It happened every time.

The music still plays, but you have to hold down the power button to do anything. Not sure if this should be listed as an oversight or not.

Interesting, will look into this and add it to the wiki if I'm able to replicate it. Thanks!  :)

Thank you Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

Give love, receive love, repeat. But in order to love others you must first love yourself unconditionally, even if it means abandoning pressure from projects or taking time off work and empathise with the self as you are your own best friend. The key often is simply to follow your heart, your urges and have faith they are valid; use them to do what you want to do as long as it doesn't harm anyone, and/or sympathise and respect it as we all have bad days (even the prettiest rose has thorns but is still beautiful).

The best way to replicate this is talking to the lottery girl as soon as you load your save file, as this is when Rotom ALWAYS talks.
Edit: Couldn't replicate, I managed to get the Battle Tree "person" to save the game while Rotom was still speaking, no crash.

Maybe its only the lottery?
Did you have the text speed on fast and make sure it was longer text? In the 2 instances it happened to me, Rotom still had text being printed and (I think) on the 2nd go, Rotom's text was done printing right as the game began to save (but his mouth was still moving).

You can do it without saving in the lottery building, as in my 2nd go, I was saved at the Daycare and traveled to Hau'oli while looping the text by opening the menu every so often and got it to freeze once it saved.

Kinda wondering if I should attempt to get it on video, maybe I'll have better luck again.

Huh, that's really odd! The game must not expect you to save while Rotomdex is talking on the bottom screen. I don't know why that would cause a freeze though. Maybe a conflict between the scripts?

Honestly I'm just fascinated with glitches and have no idea what's going on.
