    This thread is for my Pokemon OrAs Hacks, Rayless Ruby and Shadow Sapphire. These have been on Project Pokemon for a while, so I decided to put them here also. IGNORE THE THREAD NAME I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO CHANGE IT

    Rayless Ruby and Shadow Sapphire are rom hacks that I am currently developing. There are many changes to this game, including plot, wild encounters, trainer battles, and much more! NOTE: The current game only goes up to the 3rd badge, and the game will continue normally after that. I will link several tutorials to this post including how to install it on both gateway and hans, as well as updating the file without losing your save.

    One of the main changes of this hack is the addition of shadow pokemon. Mysterious shadows from within the region are corrupting pokemon into shadow forms, making them more hostile, and giving them slight but noticeable stat boosts. Due to this corruption, pokemon with shadow forms do not have shiny forms, and each shadow pokemon also loses its secondary typing to gain the dark, or sometimes ghost typing. Now, you may think that this is OP to have in a game. I agree, which is why the shadow pokemon will always have 1%-5% encounter chance (with the exception of treecko, torchic, and mudkip), meaning that they are very rare to find.

    There are a lot of evolutions that have also been changed. All of the trade evolutions have been made easier to obtain (so you don't need to trade), and a few other evolution methods have changed. I would list them, but right now they are one of the WIP parts that I'm still working on.

    The overall game difficulty has been increased, giving trainers higher AI's and IV increases, and giving most trainers competitive items. To give you an idea of the changed level curve, the Elite 4 will be around lvls 70-80 instead of lvls 50-60, and the 3rd gym will be at about lvl 30-35 instead of 20-25 (the reason I used the 3rd badge for an example is that it's one of the main level curves in the game).

    NOTE: It is recommended that once the full version (1.0.0) comes out, anyone that had previously played it play it again. There will most likely be changes to battles, some plot, as well as wild encounters. By 1.0.0 I plan to have all 721 Pokemon available without trading. Also, when you play this game, nuzlocke at your own risk. Nuzlocking is not recommended because then you wouldn't be able to see all of the shadow Pokemon that are available (Most of the Shadow Pokemon have 1-5% Encounter rates). This rom hack is made for all 3ds users, as long as you have homebrew access. There might eventually be a "pro" or "full" version for CFW only, but for now there will only be one version.
    Edit to this paragraph: Considering that now most people that play cfw's are either on citra, or have a 3ds with a cfw, the "pro/full" version will most likely just be incorporated into the regular game.

    Sorry That you've been waiting for so long! I've never gotten around to really trying to come back to working on this! I'm going to try to much more frequently (at least every day) so I can increase the frequency of these betas!



    Known Glitches​
    Some of the story text might be messed up; haven't been able to do a playthrough with the full story text yet.
    The DexNav will crash the game on some routes! If you want to try to use the DexNav, save before turning it on and save before entering a new route or a new part of a route!
    Changed Levelups may not be implemented on the version I uploaded. I haven't been able to test though so I can't verify. This will definitely be fixed by Beta 2 (soon)

    Special Thanks​
    To Youtube users Mixeli and Shadowth117 for the player models

    To TyranitarTube, because his Alpha Sapphire Extreme Randomizer series inspired me to make a game based on shadow pokemon.

    To Asia81, for making a tutorial on how to dump and decrypt roms.

    To Kaphotics, for making pk3ds, which I used to edit encounters, trainer battles, pokemon stats/level-up/TM & Tutor moves, and the shops; and also for garctool, which I used to decompress the files within the 'a' folder in RomFS

    To Reisyukaku, for making ohana3ds, which I used to edit the title screen and sprites.

    To all of the Rom Hackers and Homebrew Developers that made these hacks possible

    Not going to be too pushy with this, but if you want to see my progress updates, my twitter is the best place to go(@PrimalKyurem)
    Also, I've been doing livestreams on my youtube channel where I work on these hacks. If you want to see them, I don't remove them after the stream is over.

    Only thing I'm worried about is that the animations might be encoded differently, making importing impossible

    I would not worry. Nintendo is too lazy to do all that.

    True, they did this from xy to oras, though you can just export the model from oras/xy from Ohana3ds and import it into the other games(oras/xy)

    Update: Can't figure out how to change the title of the thread so It'll have to stay like that for now... I'll figure out how to fix it eventually

    Edit: Is it even possible to change the title? If anyone knows how could you please reply to this comment? thanks.

    News Flash: ORAS is dead, don't bother making rom hacks for it. Also, just rip textures with ohana3ds

    OrAs alone may be pretty much dead but its rom hacks definitely aren't. Hacks of GBC still aren't dead (take Pokemon Prism) and the official GBC Pokemon games came out from 1996 to 2001. OrAs came out a bit less than 3 years ago, which is nothing compared to 15 years at the very least.

    I'm not entirely that good at storyline or model editing, but texture editing is pretty easy. For most of the textures that I make I just use the selection tool to separate each different type of color on the pokemon into different layers, and then use the recolor tool on photoshop (Ctrl+U; I know it's also on paint.net but I don't remember the shortcut for it.) to change the color, brightness, and saturation until I get something that looks like a shadow pokemon, and then memorize that set of numbers to put it on the file for the mouth, eyes, etc. As for textures on models, I've only done simple recolors so far, but it's pretty much the same process except I'm not recoloring the entire thing.

    YOu can't convert them unless you have ALL of the romfs, exefs, etc. You can use Luma CFW to use LayeredFS and layer the romfs over a Digital/Cartridge copy of the game.
