    Romhack of: Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (3DS)
    Made by Dio_Vento (ProjectPokemon)

    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. 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.


    Trainer Changes
    • Harsher Level Curve: Balanced to the EXP Share​
    • New Trainer teams, many featuring six Pokémon! Even the rematches have been edited!​
    • All enemy Pokémon have max IVs!​
    • All Gym Leaders have six Pokémon!​
    • Trainers throughout the game have access to Mega Evolution!​
    • Alternate Battle Types are more common in the world!​
    Wild Pokémon Changes
    • Post-game Foreign Pokémon are avalible from the beginning of the game!
    • Rarity within areas adjusted
    • Hordes optimized for painless and early EV training!
    • Lots more Wild Hold Items!
    • Everything caught in these hacks is 100 % legit for trade!
    Item Changes
    • Less useless junk in Poké Marts!
    • Sarcred Asah available in addition to Revive. Revives costs much more, to discourage their use in battle (Sacred Ash is unusable during battle).
    • Competitive consumables are available in standard Poké Marts!
    • Slateport Market is now the go-to place to purchase competitive items like Leftlovers and Life Orbs.
    Evolution Changes
    • Trade Evolutions now have alternate methods. You can still evolve them through normal trade methods.
    Other Changes
    • Eggs now hatch incredibly quickly. Every species now has a 1-cycle hatch rate. Note that Event eggs (Lavaridge Town) glitch out thanks to this, and wrap around to taking a very long time.
    • Level 3 of the Hatching, Experience Gain, Friendship, and Mony Gain O-Powers now last much longer
    • Brendan and May have new outfits/designs.
    • Banners, Icons, and the Title Screens have been edited.

    Notes
    • You need a Gateway 3DS Flashcard and a 3DS or new3DS on 9.2 or lower firmware to play this hack. Sky3DS will NOT work! You can't inject this with the web browser and you can't use PKHeX to apply this to your game!
    • The first three people to beat the second run of the Elite Four in each game will have their teams immortalized in the trainers on the S.S. Aqua. They will also get a custom name and pre/post-battle dialouge.​
    • This ROM hack is capable of trading locally, but it can't go online.
    • Don't update the game when it prompts you to. If you update, you'll lose all features.
    • Text has been edited for the English language only. Traiver (I) will continue the translation in german language. If you wishing this ROM in other languages, feel free to ask me.
    • This is NOT designed for Nuzlocke play. Boss battles play out almost like competitive matches, with them often revenge killing you, setting up, or pulling out surprise moves. It's very rare for all six of your team to make it through any Gym battle, and some of the Ace Trainers are equally difficult. Additionally, since wild Pokémon aren't leveled up, if you were to release one of your Level 40 Pokémon that you'd have ar around the third Gym you'd have a hell of a time replacing it.
    Installation Instructions
    1. Uninstall any OR/AS updates you have installed on your 3DS.
    2. Click the banner at the top of this thread or the font at the top to download the .zip file for the hack you want to play.
    3. Obtain a .3ds ROM of Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. Don't use any Online Patched .3dz ROMs.
    4. Decrypt and unpack your ROM.
    5. Drag the files in the "Distribution" folder you downloaded into the folder where your unpacked ROM is. Let it overwrite everything.
    6. Follow the instructions in the ROM decryption guide to rebuild romfs.bin.
    7. Run the "Rutile Ruby Patcher.bat" or "Star Sapphire Patcher.bat" file. A blank command prompt window will pop up and stay blank for a while. Be patient. Eventually, text will pop up saying "Press any key". Press a key and the command prompt windows will close.
    8. Copy your newly patched ROM (RutileRuby.3ds or StarSapphire.3ds) to your flashcard.
    9. Load your ROM with your Gateway Flashcard on your 3DS or new3DS with firmware lower than or equal to version 9.2.
    10. Don't update the game when prompted.
    11. Enjoy!​

    Great release! Just have one question. Is there a way to change the Unique-ID of the Game? I've already both Games bought on the eshop and installed on my SD Card. Can I install this with another uniqueID to play it?

    So you got both games as a .cia release. You can't use your .cia to hack it into this two ROMs. You need a clean non .3dz release from the internet or you can dump your own cardridge and rename it to .3ds.

    Yea, I know this. I have both installed as cia from the eshop (legit) and a copy of my retail Cartridge (which I've sold).
    I've both cias installed (omega ruby & alpha sapphire) and I want to install Pokemon Rutile Ruby without deleting the eshop copy.
    That's why I asked if it's possible to change the UniqueID when I want to build Rutile Ruby.
    I just want to have Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Rutile Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire installed (without deleting the original one)

    Oh yeah. Sure you can do that. When you have a copy of your cardridge, which you have sold, you can use the ROM for this hack. Every Pokémon OR/AS has a different UniqueID. So your .cia version is not the same as your copy of your cardrige.

    I guess you've missunderstood me^^ the Unique-ID are the last numbers of the TitleID "000400000011C400". If it'S the eshop-version or the retail cartridge, the TitleID (and the Unique-ID) is the same. In BigRedMenu, you can't install a game twice with the same ID.

    You have a Gateway 3DS, right? Your .cia is on your SD Card inside your console. So there is no problem, when you take the ROM hack (.3ds) and put it onto your SD Card inside your Gateway 3DS Flashcard.

    Oh, so there is no option for you to use this ROM hack. You need the Gateway 3DS flashcard, it's written in the descripton.

    This hack is almost some changes of the gamefiles. I translate a Game right now which works without problems on PastaCFW, too. This Hack will work on PastaCFW, I'm sure about it.
    this does not answer my question anyways. Can I change the UniqueID of the Game?

    Does this show up in Play History?

    If so, I would be streetpassing the hell out of this thing.

    I think you can change that in the .rsf file when you decrypt the ROM and before you must change your encryption settings in your .rsf file to "false".

    You can use streetpass on your hacked ROM. But make sure, you dont connect it to the internet. And only local trade is possible.

    I will copy paste the same thing I wrote in the ProjectPokemon site:

    Wow this hack really looks interesting!

    I got just some questions:

    1) Does the edited Wild Pokemon work so we can catch all of the 720 Pokemon currently available as of 6th Gen?
    Sort of like a Emu Edition to avoid having to trade for the ones not available in one of the two versions.

    2) Let's say I want some of the features but not all of them. i.e. if I only want the Wild Pokemon and Evolutions edit, which files should I replace?
    I know 0/1/2 is for wild encounters in Pokemon X/Y but I'm not sure about Pokemon ORAS, same for the Evolution edit.

    I would really appreciate it if you could tell me the files for those two, since I want to be able to run a Vanilla playthrough of the game with only hacked wild pokemon and evolutions to be able to catch whatever Pokemon I want in the wild and evolve them without resorting to trading.

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: Does the Evolutions mod change Mega Evolutions (and also add the Hoopa item too)?

    You say this only works with Gateway... couldn't it work with any CFW that allows for unsigned 8.1 games, (I.E. Pasta) as long as you pack it as a .CIA after you modify the unpacked .3DS?

    Are all 718/721 pokemons catchable in this? Any version exclusives? Any change to dialogue so we know the hack is applied?

    Gotta find some time to playthrough Neo XY and now this!

    What are we talking in terms of hours playtime with the tweaks of these games?
