Yeah apparently the problem has to do with lua.dll or something. Unsure how to fix.

When you run the script you should tabulate until you find a line field that tells you the errors.
Ok so uh apparently a loooooooot of files are missing. Here's the error log.
.\Inputbox.lua:1: module 'ffi' not found:

[Wow] I do not need to have those directories to run the script.
Why does the PCA-Release directory have another directory called PCA-Release inside?
I never got that kind of trouble with the script.
I'd honestly just redownload the whole thing and start from scratch, I think that's your problem, especially since you said you just downloaded some files you needed and pasted them in.
wait so do I just download the files and put pokemon.lua in the lua folder, or what? How did you guys do this lol.
What I did was download PCA from the site allinaccess.com/pca
nothing else. I ran the VBA, the game and the script following the instructions in the readme.
Now it says waiting at the first rival battle again with no error log like there was before.
Now does not give errors?
No errors, but it doesn't work. It just says waiting at the rival battle.

Have you patched a clean ROM of Pokémon Crystal?
Or I'll have to leave a link with the patched ROM.
The ROM that you must patch is Pokemon - Crystal Version (USA, Europe)
That's the rom I patched. Still same problem for some reason.

Here is the link to download the patched ROM, if for some reason it does not work I could not tell you why it happens.
That seemed to have fixed it. Not sure what I did wrong, but thank you.
I wish I had more time during the week, want to play this more lol.
we seriously need some kind of guide/walkthrough, this is so different from the original, i got lost 3 times and i finally needed to stop playing because i got stuck at some point and didn't knew how to advance.
thanks for sharing this by the way!

As far as I can tell the first part replicates RBY until just before Surge so you might be able to use a guide for one of those games if your having trouble with that part. In the Kanto portion all doors, ladders etc., are listed as warps so unless you change the scripts to have the correct names you may have to memorize which warp is which door. I'm only at Union Cave but the only map change I've noticed so far is to Sprout Tower.
What teams are people using? At the moment I have Charizard, Dragonair, Magneton, Nidorina and Jynx. I'm having trouble deciding what to use for my final team member; with the updated moves/learnsets and limitless TMs you have quite a bit of flexibility.

I used a team from the following pokemon:
PIKACHU (F) although I wish I had had an ANFAROS.
MEGANIUM (M) although later I changed it for a VENUSAUR.
The Red GYARADOS I caught in the Lake of Rage.
And finally an ALAKAZAM; We do not need trade Pokemon to have its final evolutions; As it is in the case of Graveler that evolves in a Golem when trade it with a equipped object, but in this hack it is not necessary to do that to have the final evolutions of some Pokemon.
It is a very basic team that I have, would be defeated easily
How do you evolve the trade pokes? Also where do you get the other starters?

@stirlock The Pokemon evolving through trade, now only evolve by level.
That says in one of the documents of the hack, that I do not remember which one of them is.
Starters Pokémon of Johto and Kanto appear as wild pokemon after completing Johto League if I remember correctly.
Actually there's a rare chance to find them on certain routes. Says in the document.

Well, I'll check it out. I am currently playing it again because I have not played it for a long time; Although I wanted to give the opportunity to another pokemon hack, called pokemon Prism, which is based on Pokemon Crystal and unfortunately is not compatible with Lua Script, I move the camera and yes there is sound, but does not warn you if there are walls, doors, etc. In that hack there are pokemon of the generation III, New music, new region!
Man the postgame looks insane. I love this.

I started playing this game a few days ago, but eventually my Laptop decided to reboot when I was playing, for no apparent reason. My save file was destroyed in the process, but after a lot of hesitation I decided I would restart and make a backup each time I would save.
The problem is, since I restarted, when I continue the game, time is not set and it asks me for it each time. I tried redownloading and repatching the rom but it continues. Does someone know how to fix it?
Hmm. I have never had this problem, I wonder if you have the option "real time clock" checked in the emulator options. I'm not sure if that solves it.
