    Are there programs that make changes such as those you made to base roms of Sun and Moon? I would like to make something as you, but doing it without GUIs and something like that is too advanced 4 me :/

    No help for this, Dio Vento? Hasn't anyone reported something similar, with some solution for it?

    If you don't have a 3DS, you can't do what I'm about to suggest:
    Re-dump and re-decrypt your game copy. This error is likely caused by you using an encrypted ROM pirated from a website instead of a fresh decrypted dump of a legal copy of the game.

    I can't seem to get this working for some reason. I have a legit cartridge, updated to 1.2 and running the latest Luma. I have game patching enabled yet when I launch the game, it's the same old Moon. Is there a step missing from the instructions?

    You copied the Drag and Drop package to your SD card, right? Try doing that again but do it by plugging your SD into your PC instead of using a wireless tool like FTP or MicroSD Management. You just need the Luma folder, and it should be placed on the root of your 3DS SD card.

    I did that. And it used my PC the first time. The Luma/Title/###### folder is there.

    You're using the latest version of Luma3DS, correct? Technically it will work with anything above 7.0 but it's recommended you use the latest (8.1).

    You know what? That's probably it. I ran the Luma updater and it said installed successfully, but looking at the version, it's at 6.6. I tried two more times and it still won't update, it even says the latest is 8.1. Strange.

    That'll do it. The reason Luma Updater isn't working for you is because you're still on Arm9LoaderHax instead of Boot9strap. Follow this guide to switch to Boot9strap and Luma3DS 8.1 (takes less than 5 minutes). If you're feeling too lazy to do that, use Luma3DS 7.0.5, which is the last Luma release that supports a9lh.

    Added this information to the FAQ/Troubleshooting section in the second post of this thread.

    It's been a while since I installed my CFW and I thought I was on the latest version since it said the update was successful haha. That's my fault for not realizing. Thanks a million, Umbra Moon launched successfully.

    Hey there, this is a brilliant ROM hack and I am enjoying playing through it. Just noting two minor errors -firstly, Ace Trainer Yuki on Route 15 has a Rotom-Wash that knows Blizzard (this combined with the fact that he's got a hail team makes me suspect that it was meant to be Rotom-Frost). Also, my Gengar tried to learn Curse at level 66, followed by Hypnosis at 67, weirdly enough...

    The next build is gonna fix the Rotom, the Gengar moves are intentional. Learnsets have been adjusted for a better experience with the Expanded Build, so you aren't screwed over when you catch something at Lv40+ and it's out of level up moves.

    I don't know if this has been asked before on this thread, but does the edits you've done to egg hatching affect Egg RNG Manipulation?

    It shouldn't. The only change I made to egg hatching is making every species have a one-cycle hatch rate instead of a variable rate.

    I've most likely been counting my eggs wrong. Thanks for the reply.

    Does the patching option for CFW work on luma 6? Because Luma 7 is only compatible with B9S but I only have A9LH
    Also where is the documentation?
