Pokemon Brilliant Diamond leaked online ten days prior to release

dial.png

The third time's the charm, as the third major Nintendo release in the past month has been leaked onto the internet a good few days prior to the official launch date. Following Metroid Dread and Mario Party Superstars, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond is floating about online, both in .NSP and .XCI form, and it looks like the game is able to be booted and playable in some form through Nintendo Switch emulator Ryujinx as well. While the leaked version of Brilliant Diamond comes in at around 4.30GB, there is a scheduled 8GB day-one update that won't be available until the launch date, November 19th.

As always, it's important to remember that GBAtemp's ToS do NOT allow linking to warez or illegal content, so please be mindful!

Does it create a new save (for the other version) when you change it, or does it recognize the original save?
It does not. For me personally I got a black screen when loading with my diamond save and had to delete the save to boot pearl, but someone else who tested loaded their save fine.

I just do not see the problems people are having. The music sounds perfectly fine, there hasn't been a single bug beyond a single brief cutscene being a tad low framey. The chibi art style doesn't look like some trash lazy crap just because it's chibi. Do people think that chibi art styles are trash baby garbage like they used to say about cel shading? This game is just fine.
Yeah for real, maybe it's because I'm playing with headphones on but I straight up haven't noticed anything particularly terrible about the music? My only gripes right now are the lack of transitions for wild battles and the weird camera cutting back for trainer battles, but otherwise the bugs are still rather mild and I'll expect it will be patched out rather soon. Hopefully since it's in Unity it'll be even easier to mod though. I'd really like a mod to turn off the EXP Share.

It may not be a "remake" that we're used to, and I'm disappointed for that, but for a straight remaster I think it's still fun. (At least they weren't faithful to the slow movement speed!)

The game has SUCH bad frame drops at random points. Right in twinleaf town when your rival comes through the door and crashes into you it literally moves like a slideshow

VPN or no VPN ...everything gets logged!
I'll give Nintendo 3 months to catch the person or people involved.
it's not that hard to avoid being caught like that. No, not "everything gets logged." There are plenty of ways around activity logging and trace-able account accesses. Unless nintendo has the japanese equivilant of the cia in their pocket, they aren't going to find someone who isn't an idiot using their own home wifi.

Oh no, not the spoilers!

I guess time to go find Pokemon Diamond on those certain shops, and see if I'm let down.

That's not how it works. Logs are only kept for as long as the VPN host decides, and they could very well have them set to wipe after an hour, or have them wipe after you disconnect from the network. "Once it's online it's there forever" is a scare tactic used to convince kids and teenagers online privacy doesn't exist so they don't do anything stupid. It's unlikely the VPN provider (if they're reputable) cares and will cooperate because you pirated a game.

It really depends on what country the VPN is located in. Different countries have different laws. Honestly though, whoever is leaking these games is not just going to use a VPN alone and call it a day

Right, which is why many of the "good" ones are located outside of North America. I have no doubt some logs are kept, but I can't imagine much is kept unless the user is doing shady stuff, in which case they're probably using more than a VPN. But people who get caught either don't use VPNs and other stuff to help anonymity, or they're idiots who post in Discord servers bragging thinking that they'll never get caught when it's actually pretty easy to get Discord chat logs, so they get caught even if they are using a VPN.

I'm really enjoying it so far. It's very cute. And exp share permanently on by default is a no-brainer that I'm glad they did. Grinding sucks.

But it sucks when you constantly 1 hit KO everything that crosses your path

It would be nice if I had to put in effort or thought. The game was already not very hard in 2006 but now it's a snooze fest
