    Any news on the new version? I was wondering to play the 1.0 version but my Switch don't let me play pokemon on that version anymore.

    Sad news.

    We made it quite clear in our announcement post that we want to take our time with this project and it can take up to a few months until its completed.

    And we have been supporting your project since the beggining. Unfortunately, on your twitter there is nothing about any updates. Nothing at all. Just be a little more serious.

    There hasn't been any updates because we've decided to not post as much so we don't get everyone's hopes up for a pace/release window. I still plan on posting some of the major parts of my playtesting, but even with the original release I didn't post much more than a few gyms.

    The reason why there hasnt been many updates though is because a lot of the work is done in drafting and applying the changes to Pokemon stats, abilities, and movesets that we want to make. It takes a LOT of time.

    Guys, stop asking for updates. It'll get done when it gets done. I've been lurking this thread for updates too because I'm excited to play the next release but this is something Kobazco and some others are doing for free in their spare time. I am grateful the only personal investment I give up in order to play this mod is my own patience. Thanks for working on this project Kobazco!

    Mate how entitled are you? They don’t owe you anything. They’re doing this in their own free time. They said it will be a long time until it’s ready so just be polite and show some patience.

    Maybe that was worded a bit rudely but I do get his point. Having a more consistent update schedule would alleviate a lot of anxiety that followers of this project have.
    Just going: "Hey, we completed ~X% of the Project" at the end of each month would already be enough.
    And maybe pin the latest so it doesn't drown in the deluge of other tweets.

    Thats the thing though, the project isn't something we work consistently on enough for me to feel like it'd be ok to do that. I don't want to give people false hope because one week I might have a ton of time and motivation and get half the game done but then suddenly I can't work on it for a month or maybe more. Not saying that I won't give progress reports when I feel as if its worth it (I just thought of a cool idea that I'll hopefully get around to doing soon), but based on previous experience with this kind of stuff, I feel as if its better to not give false hope or hype.

    I hope everyone understands that, as well as my twitter is NOT focused on Pokemon/this project. It IS somewhere I will post important updates, but I'll also post them here more likely than not.

    Here's a small update on my plans:

    Before I can do anything that isn't Pokemon stat/moveset changes, I want to try my hand at learning how to do various changes to the game's code in order to implement the following ideas. Here they are and how likely each one is to happen:

    • Reimplementation of cut moves. (Already done! DOESNT WORK WITH ANIMATIONS ON YET THOUGH!!)
    • Soft EXP cap. Would require modifying of the EXP formula, would create an experience similar to Pokemon Radical Red. (Probably possible, but not cleanly)
    • Forced to Set style. (Unsure if possible, if not, removal of knowing which Pokemon is coming in next on Switch style.
    • Inability of using the Bag in trainer battles. (Won't know until I find the relevant code for battle commands. If not, removal of battle items at the LEAST)
    • Editing of in game shops.
    • Reimplementation of the Switch Pokemon AI type. (SwSh AI won't swap their active Pokemon, even with the flag enabled)
    • If I can get the above AI change to work, possible AI adjustments.
    This is the main reason why I haven't committed to making any real progress in terms of trainer battles/game progression. I've been spending a lot of time thinking about what is probably possible and worth pursuing, as well as doing a ton of testing in regards to it. (Like getting cut moves to work again, which IS working outside of animations.)

    I hope everyone understands that when I said I wanted to make this romhack something special, I meant it. That's why I'm sorry but I can't and won't be giving often progress reports or any of that. I want to take my time getting a working framework as well as developing my own skills first. Thanks for everyone who is supportive.


    Oh, and if anyone has experience with code (exeFS) editing SwSh/Switch games in general, please let me know! That's the main thing that I don't have much of an idea of where to start/what tools to use. A hex editor can only get me so far, after all.

    Thanks so much @Kobazco

    We're looking forward your version (since is wayyyyyy better than the original);
    Had so much fun with the 1.0 version.

    Could you tell me if everything works fine in 1.0 version during all game, up to Elite Four? I haven't play Sword and Shield yet, and it takes too much time to wait for the final version of hack..

    This looks very cool! Might be one of the ROM hacks I try out when I hack a switch (eventually)
    One question I do have is would it be possible to replace the NPC with Allister himself? Or is that not possible with the tools available right now?

    I do want to look into NPCs but its probably not possible/worth the amount of time and research that would go into it just for it to probably not work.

    Just wanted to say, what an amazing job you've done thus far. I just tried restarting the game but had zero drive to try new Pokemon because of how painfully easy I gave up after the first gym.

    I'll wait patiently until your happy with the finished product for the main game (not including any DLC) to play through it and finish the main part, don't care for updated DLC, can't wait, thanks again for all your hard work.

    Hey everyone. Just wanted to let you all know that no matter how much time passes between progress being made, this project is always on my mind. I recently just started my winter break and hopefully I'll be able to look into the various code edits I wanted to get working for the mod (starting with modifying the exp formula) I hope everyone knows that its going to take quite a long time to get the base for the romhack that I want working before I can start working on trainers and stuff. Hope everyone has a good Christmas and I'll continue doing my best!

    I ended up doing quite a bit of work, including moving Medicine and Battle items to the "Other Items" tab in order to make them unusable in battle.

    Also got the stat checker added in from the game start and changed the vague words to the ranges of the IVs

    thats super cool. is this (and the mart editor) going to become part of pknx at some point, or is it all custom hex editing on your part? I dont know how involved you are in pknx development
