To everyone who keeps on saying "Disable the Events" or "Change the Events to ####", you can't. The people who have been working on this have tried that, and it only leads to more problems.

As for "Use the (U) version to patch the (J) version", they can't do that either. There's a number of things that are different, including the text. There was a picture on the old thread of someone who tried and it jumbled up the entire script.

Exactly what problems does altering the event counter cause?

The data we have really match this equation. But maybe there is another one. The "+ 24" is sure because when you have 0 badges it's 24 events needed

But if this is known, don't we know where it is, it should be possible to just delete it or change it, isn't it?
IT'S BEEN TRIED! It means you can't even start the game up...

Maybe it's something very obvious and were just missing it?

Probably already asked, but who is this "they" that is working on the fix?

Same question, can someone confirm that there is a group of "hackers" working on a patch or are people just assuming it?

All we know so far is that the AP is linked to the badges and the number of 'events' that you go through. It is the one constant that's visible in almost every flashcart.

Souldragon is one of the actual few who are working on a fix, but it'll take some time.

The equation was found by a computer, you enter all your y=f(x) results like that
x=0 y=24
x=1 y=21
x=2 y=15
x=3 y=3
And then the computer give you an equation.
I don't know how an equation can be written in Hexadecimal, nobody know where it is, nobody know if it really exists. But if it is a coincidence, it's weird.

okay, messing with the number events and such will not work, we need to find where the AP lies in the rom and fix/edit it and what not.

Guys just thought I'd mention this, it seems to work fine on R4DS with 1.18 firmware but it crashed the first time for me when I walked around Cherrygrove City. I would like to see a solution (preferably a patch but AR code can work as well). It's not black screen, the game just freezes up.

I have a lvl 7 Totodile btw

It has been confirmed that Xenophobia, along with others, is working on it.
Furthermore, there are endless other groups scrambling to find the fix.
It is not their responsibility to assure y'all that they are working hard.
