Good job so far. Though it seems that not every evolution change have been implemented 1:1 from Renegade Platinum.
I tested with Grimer and it did evolve into Muk at level 35 like in Renegade Platinum, but then Slugma did NOT evolve into Magcargo at level 32 (like in Renegade Platinum), but rather at level 38 like normally. I also encountered Gligar with Sand Veil, while I think it should be replaced with Immunity.

Those are just few things that I noticed while testing this mod briefly.

Thanks for testing! Abilities are kind of all over the place since RP didn't have access to hidden abilities. Because we do, changing the abilities in cases like that were deemed irrelevant. In cases where Dray added new ones, those were added into the rotation. Regarding evolutions, we'll go back and exit the level ones soon. We were focused on getting unobtainable ones in there asap. I don't think we got around to all the level changes quite yet.

As a side note, we really appreciate all your feedback and we would have been able to help you get the mod running earlier if you joined our discord :P

Given the questions on the Game Banana thread, might it be useful to link to Renengade Platinum as a whole both here and there so others can access the documentation of things you're implementing?

I'm really excited for all this progress! Once the trainer changes are implemented, I'm very excited to go through the whole thing as something new and not as easy as the remakes turned out to be.

Loving this mod. Is there any plan to create a version with the base stats, typings and movesets the same as the vanilla game? Similar to the "Classic" version of Renegade Platinum? I'd still like to have the ability to trade and battle locally with others.

Both versions work on 1.1.1, make sure you're placing the files in the correct place.
I’m still having issues over here.

Grabbed the files on game banana and put the romfs folder in this directory:

/atmosphere/contents/0100000011D90000

Fairly certain this is correct, and I’ve successfully modded other games including very recent releases like the GTA remastered trilogy.

I mention the last point because I haven’t seen this problem before. Having a similar issue with Mario Party Superstars but my title installer (DBI) doesn’t even recognise the title ID folder inside /atmosphere/contents for that.

All I can think of is a bad dump, unless you have any other ideas to try? Only other possibility is that I’m trying to apply the ROM hack to a game save already in progress, do I need a fresh save?

I’m on Atmosphere 1.2.4 / OFW 13.1.0, running BD v1.1.1 if that helps.

The game is working for myself and many other people, I don't have a bad dump. Regarding having a save file in progress, that shouldn't be a problem, as I already had a save too

I meant a bad dump of the game and/or update nsps - can’t be the romfs files if it work for you and others.

I’ll keep poking around with it. I’ve got a good track record of getting this sort of shit to work.

Thanks for your hard work :)

I figured out how to make it work on my end. Paradoxically, install "No Trade Evolutions" on Game Banana and then overwrite it with Luminescent. Now it works. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Are you playing on Pearl? I think I figured out the problem.

Really appreciated your work so far but I haven't the time to play the Hack rom and i was wondering if you are going to make changes to the legendary catchable in Ramanas Park?

No i'm on Diamond. I have a hunch that it might be that my save was made on an earlier version of the game and hasnt been saved since i updated to 1.1.1. I've seen something similar with PKHeX so will try uninstalling/reinsalling tonight.

Plan B is to give @Eevenin's solution a try.

Thank you for your hard work, can not stand playing these games without a proper hack :)
Looking forward to the full release/implementation of the Trainer Teams.

Hello! Amazing work so far! I Will the person who’s doing the trainer be adjusting the AI of all trainers to elite four level like the original hack? Are they also adjusting the level curve as well.

I’m also waiting for the trainer update and am so excited to play through a fresh sinnoh experience!

We've already set them to champion AI. We have all of Renegade Platinum's trainers in the correct format right now, just a matter of copying them over in a sane way now. Renegade Platinum had a lot of excess trainers, or trainers that don't match up 1:1 with the trainers in BDSP, so we're currently deciding how we're going to handle it. We have a lot of tools at our disposal, so once we decide on a way to handle it, trainers will be done within a day or two.

We are concurrently handling movesets, and have full knowledge of how to set moves for each level, and set TM learnsets, and even egg moves, but we have some other stuff we want to play around with before releasing movesets... That might be a later update, for good reasons :) Be excited.

I only hope the trainer updates doesn't release on the 3rd, or I'll have to choose between this mod and FFXIV Endwalker!

Just joking. Excited to hear you guys are all revved for everything you've got planned.
