    Romhack of: Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (3DS)

    Pokémon Rutile Ruby and Star Sapphire are romhacks of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Their main purpose is to provide a more challenging game experience while not artificially limiting the player. The premier feature of Rutile Ruby and Star Sapphire is the ground-up redesign of Pokémon Trainers in the world to increase the game's challenge. Every trainer in the game has been edited, and the level curve expects use of the Experience Share, which means that you level up very quickly. You should be hitting Level 100 by the time you get to the Elite Four.

    This mod's information has been moved to my WordPress.

    Time to spice up a little this game, hope now winning a badge feels like an accomplishment, because pokemon always is dreadfully easy...

    Nice!

    Can confirm that Star Sapphire is fully working on 9.9.0.26U using HANS to load the romfs.

    I decided to make a backup of my save, and delete it to start fresh with the hack.

    Word of caution though, delete the save from within the game itself, do not attempt to delete the save with svdt or any other save managers, as this will simply tell you that the data is corrupted and the game will not be usable unless you copy your old save back in!

    Ok searching trough google i found another Dio Vento's post which says: Fixed a minor issue: the folder containing the garc files in the distribution packs was named "rom" when it should be named "romfs". If you downloaded before this change, just rename the folder yourself.
    So what i actually did is:
    Run romfs builder.exe and selected romfs folder, then i saved as romfs.bin.
    Edited with HxD and then renamed to rruby.romfs -> copied into hans folder (not the 3ds one), but when i select Pokèmon Rutile Ruby on the Homebrew Channel that's what i got: [​IMG]

    How big is your Rutile Ruby romfs file?

    It should be 1.75GB

    If I'm reading this right, you're not extracting an existing ROM to get the main rom contents folder. You need to do that, then copy the romhack files over that, THEN recompress as a bin. Then after that, you open it in a hex editor and delete lines 00000000 to 00000FF0, save it as ssapphire.romfs (NOT .bin) and put it on your 3DS SD card. This works with any region Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby.

    I guess that's a bug, I used that name for some of the development process. You'll probably only see it if you're using Gateway to load it. Fix incoming.

    That'll do it, I probably left some of the non-English language title files with Blood Ruby. I'll fix when PK3DS stops being an ass when I try to edit them.
