Debate Wars / Re: Should downloading video game ROMs be illegal?
« on: June 19, 2009, 11:52:25 am »
I think 75~120 years is too long for copyrights, if you ask me...

I think they should be more like patents, 20 years with no renewals allowed, but knowing Congress, that probably won't happen -_-

Anyway, I think these "ROMs are illegal" people are crazy, as not too many people have actually been busted for downloading a ROM, AFAIK o_O;;

(besides, I see people getting busted more often with movies and music than ROMs, so the police probably generally don't care, lol)
Is there any way to do the Celebi glitch on an emulator? I'd like to try it on VBA and see if it works there...

(I would assume that you press Ctrl-R to reset when the "SAVING... DO NOT TURN OFF POWER" screen comes on, but before "POWER" ^_^)

Have you ever regretted anything you've done in a Pok?mon game? I can name a couple of recent things...

I tried everything to catch Uxie... False Swiping it down to 1 HP and sleeping it... I had to reset a fuckload of times! I eventually just gave up on Uxie and just killed it (and it gave s**t for EXP, too!) I tried every type of ball (Ultra, Dusk, and Timer), but Uxie just wouldn't stay in the ball...

I had to reset four times, and I still had no luck, and I was saving the Master Ball for Giratina or Cresselia, so I just decided to kill Uxie instead... on my first try, I blacked out because I was out of Pok?mon, and had to reset; the second try, I ran out of balls; the third try, I ran out of Dusk Balls and actually banged my DS so hard that it froze; the fourth try, I used at least 30 balls, with no luck at all (at this point, I gave up and just killed her instead) >_<

Another, rather minor one, is wasting an Ice Beam TM on Weavile, who is probably the Ice-type with the lowest Spec. Attack... (and I don't want to blow all my Pok?money to buy casino coins for another Ice Beam TM, so I'm stuck with Blizzard for Gyarados...)

Yet another one is wasting a Thief TM, which I accidentally overwrote with a False Swipe TM on Sneasel so I could use it for catching Pok?mon -_-
Pokémon Discussion / Problems with G/S/C on VBA
« on: June 17, 2009, 06:14:29 pm »
I'm having some problems running Pokémon Gold, Silver, or Crystal on VBA emulator o_O;;

When I save and reset, it always asks me to reset the clock, and it says "TIME NOT SET" on the NEW GAME/CONTINUE screen, and I go into the game and it gives me a "The clock's time may be wrong. Please reset the time." error after I select Continue and it shows the time as "???"...

This never used to happen to me with VBA until recently. Any idea of what might be wrong? Is it a problem with VBA, my GSC ROMs or just my save files?

EDIT: Never mind... problem solved... could someone lock this?

Yea, there's always the possibility that the CR2025 save battery has actually leaked in the cartridge o_O;; (I think it happened with my Red version...)

A leaking save battery can cause stuff like the ROM chip being glitched, the game not starting, etc...
Pokémon Discussion / Shinies and Pokérus

How many shiny Pokémon have you gotten? Besides the red Gyarados, I caught a shiny Tauros in Pokémon Crystal back in 2003 or so, and a shiny Electrike in 2007 on Pokémon Emerald o_O;; (as a stroke of luck, when I traded a Cranidos for a Shieldon on the GTS recently, the Shieldon I received was a shiny, too!)

So, yea... I've had three shinies total ^_^

Now, onto Pokérus... I remember getting it when I was EV training a Swablu/Altaria back on Sapphire (I still have the Altaria in my box, not taking it out because it would remove the Pokérus...)

Yea, have any stories about shiny Pokémon or Pokérus you feel like sharing? ^_^
Generation I Glitch Discussion / Re: Dead Red cartridge ..

Yea, my Pok?mon Red's battery died in like 2006...

I found it at my dad's house just a couple of weeks ago, and I think the battery has actually started leaking into the cartridge o_O;;

Yea, when I tried it the first time in years, I got a Missingno-like creature instead of Charmander on the startup screen, and it froze after the introduction (before it dumps you into your room).

The second time I tried it, the game ran for about 15 minutes, then froze with the Striped Screen of Death. After that, I reset the GBA and it actually played for over 40 minutes and the game didn't crash or freeze o_O;;

I wonder if something like Play-N-Trade can change the battery in it? It's probably too late now, though...

OTOH, my Blue, Crystal, and Silver still work fine (my sister has Gold), and I probably don't have to worry about the later games (Gen 3 and up) for a long time, lol

iDeaS doesn't need the BIOS, AFAIK...

(I prefer that over NO$NDS, and you don't need eNDryptS for iDeaS ^_^)

I used to watch the Pok?mon anime, back in the Kanto season and part of the Orange Islands, but stopped by the time the Johto episodes started...

Anyways, I'm kinda sick of Wheel of Fortune, as it's the same thing every time, almost...
I remember when I put in "MORE FEEBAS" as the Dewford phrase because I couldn't find any Feebas on Route 119, lol
Really, a ROM hack actually promotes the video game that's being hacked.
Yea... but Square-Enix is a lot like a Viacom or WMG in recent times, especially after the merger, which was a good 5 or so years ago... (another Chrono-related project, called Chrono Trigger Resurrection, got C&Ded in 2004 or 2005, IIRC)
Well, ROM hacking is technically illegal, and creates a derivative work of a copyright work. What Glitch City does is not creation of derivative works, but using GameShark/Action Replay and other methods of glitching (such as the Ditto Glitch, etc.) to find glitches.

However, Crimson Echoes changed the storyline, maps, and spirtes of Chrono Trigger, and highly publicizing the ROM hack just weeks before release is probably what raised a red flag and caused SE to issue the C&D for Zeality and the CE team.

Yet the Pok?mon and Sonic communities (and the Mario community, AFAIK) have never gotten C&Ded, from what I can tell...
I don't know if anyone here is a Chrono Trigger fan (and sorry if this is the wrong forum), but...

Crimson Echoes, a fan-hack of Chrono Trigger, received a cease-and-desist issued by SquareEnix last week. This also brought down all of the other Chrono Trigger hacking-related sections of the site, including the Retranslation and the Temporal Flux hacking tool.

I'm disappointed at what happened, but at least this hasn't happened to the Pok?mon hacking sites yet (goth forbid Glitch City going down due to a C&D, as the entire site revolves around research and hacking for glitches)...
