    Hello all,

    Over the past two weeks I have been working on my romhack of Pokémon Omega Ruby titled Pokémon Sigma Ruby. I have chosen Sigma as this is like Omega and Alpha another letter in the Greek Alphabet as well as that it feels suiting for an improved Pokémon Ruby game.

    The most important change in Pokémon Sigma Ruby is that not just the Inverse Battle trainer battles you with the types inversed, no, ALL battles are now following the Inverse type effectiveness.


    ~Screenshots~

    Icon and banner, Title Screen, Custom Brendan clothes, Custom May clothes, Bust May Mod


    ~List of features~

    A full list of changes such as those made to Pokémon, moves and evolutions can be found in the .pdf file included in the download!
    • The game has a new icon and banner!
    • The game has a new title screen!
    • Many Pokémon have had their base stats slightly updated to make them more viable.
    • Difficult or impossible evolutions (i.e. trade evolutions) have been taken out
    • Some Pokémon have had their typing updated
    • There have been updates on move stats
    • Various Slateport City Market stores have had their items swapped
    • To improve the viability of the above various purchase prices have been swapped
    • Various signs have had their content changed. Try to find them all ;)!
    • Various gift Pokémon have been changed.
    • Various static Pokémon have been changed.
    ~Download~

    Probably the most important section of the post right ;)!?

    Click here to download the Busty May version!

    I'm sorry everyone, I only have the busty version for my re-upload :ph34r:




    ~Notes~

    • This game cannot be installed alongside an already existing omega ruby as the romhack won't have a custom TitleID. Please remove any existing Omega Ruby first. Trust me when I say I really wanted this to be the case but using a rsf file with makerom continuesly resulted in black screens after the "Nintendo 3DS" animation. you can first back up the save with [JKSV](https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-jks-savemanager-homebrew-cia-save-manager.413143/) if you want to.
    • If you're already playing a copy of Omega Ruby you will have to remove all updates from that (CTR-U-ECRA/P/E/J is the ProductID for DevMenu/BigBlueMenu) or the romhack will not work. As much as I want to incorperate the 1.4 update in the romhack this is not only very tedious but it is also dangerous because Nintendo can and will ban your Battle Spot and GTS if not online entirely access if they detect you are online with a hacked game (they announced this a while back and since I've actually seen various reports of it) (as opposed to "popular" belief that does not include pkhex'ed / powersaved mons)
    • Text has been edited for the English version only!
    • Since this hack makes no changes to the save file structure you can inject or extract the save file perfectly normal
    ~Special Thanks~
    • Kaphotics: For creating the amazing pk3ds as well as GARCTool
    • SciresM: For making various tools that are now integrated in pk3ds
    • Asia81: For the tutorial on how to decrypt, extract and repack a 3DS rom
    • Rei: For Ohana3DS which has allowed me to make various texture edits
    • Whoever the heck made Adobe Photoshop: For editing the above mentioned textures
    • ihaveamac (aka ihaveahax) for his continued support while using 3dstool, ctrtool and makerom as well as his amazing work on 3dsconv.py
    • squee666 (aka corrupt mod target) for his support on making the custom icon and banner (requested "aka" name)
    • Astronautlevel for his awesome work on StarUpdater and Luma3DS Nightlies. Also for informing me `py -2` is required when having both Python2 and 3 installed because not even Google gave this one.
    • Everyone else involved in the 3DS hacking community to make CFW possible. Tuxsh, AuroraWright, Smealum, Yellows8, Plailect, derrek, plutoo, d0k3, delebile and everyone else!

    Wait, I tough you can't edit CR0 files, because edit them result in a black screen. It has changed?

    It's against the rules to upload games or roms!

    Could we, you know, have a list of these changes? Would be nice.

    Luma and ReiNAND have RO patches now. I guess leave reverse engineering the actual cros up to Kaphotics & Co.

    I know the rules and no it's not - if you read the instructions on-post it clearly states the user still needs their own copy of the game to gain the exheader in order to be able to compile the game into a working copy.

    I might just actually do it at some point, more likely if I run into more edits to be made. I'll first have to learn how to use Blender properly
