    Yes but from what i've heard it's a pain in the neck to to so. Overall that's just something I don't really feel the need to do.

    I could always add Cyrus into the list of challenge trainers available to fight after catching Arceus.

    That would be epic, but could you make a little story along with it?

    Yeah I can. I haven't really put in any stories for the kanto gym leaders or previous champions, because I can't really think of any. But one of the challenge trainers I did make a story for, and if I put Cyrus in, I would do the same.

    Though, the only possible story I can think of for Cyrus would require map editing and importing, which is something I do not know how to do. So for now, Cyrus as a challenge trainer is a no go.

    Well the kanto gym leaders are challenge trainers as well. I'm just saying that I've really only added one challenge trainer that has a story.

    Most challenge trainers might be slightly easy, seeing as most of them are comprised of the same type. But some of them will be a little bit harder due to not having the same exact type for each pokemon.

    Love this hack so far.

    The game freezes/goes black on me in mt.coronet after moving on from the level with 2 team galactic guys and the (hidden) rare candy. This is after 7 gyms and doing the lake battles/team galactic warehouse battles.

    Thank you for telling me this.

    I found this freeze as well while I was trying to test the flag that Arceus sets once you catch him that is used to activate the challenge trainers. I wasn't sure if it was in the current downloadable version or not, so I am glad someone got far enough to see it, otherwise I would not have known yet.

    Is it the freeze that happens just two rooms before the summit(You climb the stairs to the left and it freezes)?

    I tried to fix this, and no matter what I did I could not fix it. This will be one of the biggest issues that I will need to fix with V1.5. It seems to be as bad of a freeze as the cycling road freeze that I had to fix earlier on.

    The cycling road freeze was a pain in the ass to fix as well. I literally had to get a brand new platinum rom, import some narc files, and go in through each map one by one and copying all the scripts to fix. That took a while.

    Since it isn't an easy to fix freeze and requires a good amount of time to fix, I probably won't be able to fix this particular freeze for this version. But I will make sure this freeze is fixed for version 1.5. For V1.5, I will make a quick run through the game, this time doing it all the way until at least Elite 4 completion.

    Since all of the new additions to V1.5 will have to do with post-arceus content, there won't be any changes that you have missed, so once it comes out you will easily be able to switch over.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    To be a little more specific, the freeze happens in a room with 2 floors, 1 galactic guy on the first floor before the first stairs, then on the second floor there is a galactic guy to the left (just before the stairs where it freezes when I enter). The rare candy is slightly to the right on the second floor.

    Interesting about the cycling road freeze. That is the only area where I purposely avoided a couple trainers for no reason other than laziness. I did not have any issues in this area of the game.

    Looking forword for v1.5. :yay:

    See, when I found the freeze, I was testing the post-arceus codes(the freeze wasn't there earlier on when developing the hack), so Team Galactic was no longer there. But it was one of the last rooms in Mt. Coronet before Spear pillar. The following picture is of the room that the freeze occurs. Once you go up the bottom steps it happens.

    [​IMG]

    Cycling Road was fixed a little while back. It posed as much of a problem as the Mt. Coronet Freeze, but since it was early on in the game, it was much worse. But basically the Cycling Road freeze had to do with both Cycling Road as well as Route 206. If you entered cycling road from Eterna City's south gate, the game would freeze in the exact same manner as the freeze in Mt. Coronet. If you entered Route 206 from just north of Oreburgh City, it would simply freeze and you wouldn't be able to move but you would still hear music. If you tried to rename your save file and run it through a regular Platinum Rom, it would work. However, if you did that, saved on route 206 or cycling road, quit, renamed your save back to the origin platinum save, and open origin platinum and loaded the file, it would freeze on a black screen.

    With the Cycling Road freeze, I couldn't simply fix it by just going in and adding a simple line of scripting. I had to completely copy the narcs over except for the script narc, and then go through area by area copying the scripts. That is what I will have to do with the Mt. Coronet freeze as well, which is why this won't be fixed until V1.5.

    However, if you do wish to progress in your game and would like to not have to wait for V1.5 to do so, just save right before the freeze, rename your .sav file and open it via a regular platinum rom. If the freeze I am talking about is the same freeze you are talking about, just run the regular platinum rom until you are at at least spear pillar(2 rooms later) and save. You could also do it until the distortion world. Then save and rename it back to origin platinum and run it with the origin platinum rom. Make sure you do not fight Giratina with the regular platinum rom. This is because in Origin Platinum, Giratina holds the Griseous orb, and the orb in Turnback Cave has been replaced. So if for some reason you catch Giratina while you are still running the regular platinum rom, you will not be able to get the Griseous orb in Origin Platinum

    Please see this post. http://gbatemp.net/t...ost__p__4393598

    If you would like to progress without having to wait for V1.5, load your save using the normal platinum rom, get to either the peak or distortion world, save, then load the save using Origin Platinum.

    I am really sorry for the inconvenience. This freeze is just as hard to fix as the cycling road freeze that I had to deal with a while back.

    This sounds like an awesome modification, but the download links are broken, as the files are invalid. Could you re-upload them please?

    The downloads are still up and the links work perfectly fine. I've been working on V1.5, and since that is almost done, that will be the next thing I will upload.

    Current Progress:

    Challenge Trainers Added: 19 out of 20

    Once the last challenge trainer is added, I will go through each of them again and make any changes I need to their pokemon and movesets. Afterward, I need to do a quick playthrough and make sure the game doesn't freeze.

    this seems very good and interesting, hope you get to release v1.5 soon, by the way, is everything edited up to the 7th gym or is just the freeze that doesn't allow you to continue and everything is edited including elite 4 and champion?, anyways, if i ever reach to the freeze part, i will use the original platinum rom and then the hacked rom as you said some posts back, i'll tell you if there is any problem/bugs after doing that

    The entire game is edited, just not bug fixed. The current version that is out has only one problem so far: It freezes in Mt. Coronet when going to the summit. It freezes when you try to go to the very last room before the summit. This can be bypassed by simply saving, switching to a regular platinum rom, going through the next room and getting to the summit, saving, then loading back the Origin Platinum rom.

    So far I have not heard of any problems other than that, even after telling people to bypass it for now.

    Looks like a nice hack.

    Was going to download it and try it out, but since you said the new version will be out soon I'll wait.

    Go ahead and download. The new version I'm working on is entirely post-national dex completion content.
