Emulation of Crystal's Mobile Adapter
« on: August 17, 2019, 04:37:31 pm »
Of special interest to those interested in game preservation should be the REON Dev Team's successful trade conducted using an online protocol and a software implementation of the Mobile Adapter, most famous for its use in the Japan-only version of Crystal.

As their recent tweet (complete with video footage) reads:

"For the first time in 17 years and 8 months, a trade was done with Pocket Monsters Crystal using the GTS precursor at the PCC. A shiny Gyarados was traded for a Meganium."

Additionally, hardware that would allow for online trades to be conducted in this manner is in progress. On their Discord, you can find other material such as scans and screenshots, and even talk of "DLC content" that was distributed long ago for use with the phone adapter.

Worth reading too if you're interested in the details on what made this possible is Háčky's super in-depth research on how the adapter communicates with the GBC.

I come and go. Apparently still more than most of the other regulars, so hard to say it's a semi-hiatus of some sort. Suggestions for wiki organization are appreciated here if you haven't seen this thread yet.
I don't have a habit of keeping Discord open, so direct inquiries are still preferred through here.
