Currently working on a massive set for this game. Going to be a bit different for other sets. A lot of the achievements will be based on the actual series.

Will some be based on the Abridged series as well? :P Like how Nappa thought Chioutzu was a Pokemon?

I don't know this game at all, but when you say massive set, the only suggestion I would have would to try to keep the achievement quantity don't to a reasonable number. Based on a plenty of player feedback I'd recommend keeping the upper limit of a set quantity <= 60 with up 70 really pushing it.

There are a few reasons why:

When I play a set with a high quantity of achievements I'll find that too many achievements waters down the point value of each making them feel "not worth it" for the effort, especially if there are low points rewarded for difficult challenges.

If the set is full of easy progress achievements, or cheeves I'll be getting along the way, where I am getting them right and left on the first playthrough often I will have no idea why I am getting them. I'll find it easy to ignoring if I actually did the right thing or if it's a false trigger because it's just yet another popup, and I have not committed 100+ challenges to memory quite yet... They start to feel not very meaningful.

Even seeing a huge list of achievements is enough to turn off many players, this is something I've heard from many.

That said, you're the dev here so your creative vision is completely up to you how you design you set within the limitations of the toolkit. Good luck!

basically kdecks, this is simply a Pokemon Firered/Leafgreen hack where all Pokemons, some NPC and textures are replaced by DBZ stuff.

hmm i see. Well, in any case, Micky, one idea I have, is "I hate it when they do that" for having a wild Fighter use any sort of "suicide" move. Or maybe one of yours, whatever :P

I added , I got the points by demoting (now covered by ) and (now covered by ) because they were both redundant achievements that asked you to save, unlock one then reload to get the other one.

Looks like the rom isn't linking to the set anymore. Game ID comes up as 10873 when i pull the game page details, not 7825 as it should be.

was working fine on Friday when i played last, but it won't work today.

This means you have a bad rom, be sure to apply the V5 patch on FireRed (USA) v1.0.
The correct checksum is 7944f13e2a3a192958ccf4499120ab74
I unlinked all roms linked to this set after reading comment on game page where they say that set was working with older versions that don't have all the content covered by this set.

Thank you for the information.

The rom i was using was directly from the link at the top of this thread for V5. I downloaded it again but the problem remains.

Is there a different location that we should be getting the rom from?
