    2. Shame on you please don't be gay it's a massive sin because it was ADAM AND EVE NOT ADAM AND "STEVE" so please wise up before it's too late my non gay brother.

    3. That's quite homophobic.... What's the matter with being gay?

    4. What you fucking gay?
      (Its a meme dont flame me im not homofobic)

      Delete
    5. Its not homophobic lol, that means u have a fear of homosexuals. Its not fear its concern cuz the act is a sin, thas whats wrong with it. Why would you risk burning in hell for personal gratification? Thats something you cant go back from. Why dont they look for it in the opposite sex? You havent sinned till you've done the act, its not a lifestyle, its a simple choice. Finding the same same sex attractive dont make you gay, having sex with them does. You can think the same gender is attractive without it meaning anything. People can say they dont "believe" it but that dont mean that somethin isnt true. If your wrong, you burn, if im wrong i just rot in the ground. Thats a risk im not willing to take.

    8. Sin and god are about as made up as pokemon. Props for being real. Think for yourself dont be mareep

    9. Dude having sex with a female is a sin too. You're fucking stupid as a Christian I abide by the new testament and I've never seen anything I'm the new testament against it.

      Delete
    10. Yes homosexuality is in the new testament rom 1:26. It is sin. Anything we do contrary to godswill is sin. But none can perfect that which is why god sent Jesus to die for our sins. As for the comment of god not being real. Every night when you lay your head down and you have that empty feeling in your heart and wonder what going to happen to me when I die, remember this thread. Misery loves company but don't bash god to drag others down with you. BTW anyone who hates on this thread Jesus said you will be hated because of my name so if you think about it you are making the Bible more true... All my brothers in Christ and those who don't believe. Love you all and remember. God isn't about us burning in hell or going to heaven, although it's a big part of it. It's about creating a relationship with jesus and loving one another here on earth. Yes we are called to live how god tells us yet if we focus on him first all that will fall into place. Peace and love from up above. Praying for love and spiritual enlightenment for us. By the way if anyone wants to strengthen their bond with Christ check out marked men for Christ. Org peace and love from the master Jesus to all who receive it willingly

    13. I can't believe that all this started with a simple meme.. I do believe in god and I think that being gay is not only a sin, but also unnatural..like, take the animals for example..they aren't attracted towards the same sex..the only creatures that are actually attracted to the same sex are plants..and as for the frogs that are "found to be gay" they were actually treated with chemicals that are (in a nutshell) drugs... I really pity those who think that being gau is ok and RIGHT... I pity their fate..

      Delete
    14. Listen up you homophobic (defined by the dictionary as "having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people") idiots. Being gay isn't a choice, you don't choose who you're attracted to. It isn't "wrong" or "a sin" to be gay. First of all, "sinning" is bullshit because we have enough science to disprove most of the bible so that argument is made completely void. Second, since I know you didn't pay attention to the argument against the bible, if being gay was "wrong" then why would God create them? Sexuality is because of chemicals that were given to you as a fetus, and cannot be changed after birth. I can't tell you to "just start liking people of your gender" and expect any change because you aren't scientifically able to like them. I'm astounded that you have the audacity to even think of saying anything homophobic when all of science (things that have been proven to be correct) disagrees with you.

      If on a different OS, the only reason for the white screen is save type not being 128k.
      Remember, extract above zip file (vba.zip) and all it's contents to a folder before running the .exe. Let me know if this helps.

  14. Hey knuckle San! I noticed that you know what to do with the Pokémon games and there is this one part where Percy try's to catch arceus and it freezes. Do you know to fix that without loosing my progress

    Replies
    1. Yes, somebody pointed out the same bug in LP+. Try this-
      Download another version of LP, for example, the Final Version. Save before the event in LP+. Load the save into the different version and complete the Arceus event. Now load the save back into LP+.
      I'm not sure how you load saves on your emulator, but in most cases just rename your .sav file to match the game you're loading for. (gamev1.sav -> gamev2.sav)

  16. Hi, When Percy is about the fight arceus, the game freezes? Anyway to fix with loosing progress?

    I am using VisualBoy Advance.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Someone just reported this glitch a few comments ago. It only seems to happen on Light Platinum Plus. I heard you can get past this by loading your save into a different version of Light Platinum which doesn't have this glitch. Once you complete the event in the other version, you can load your save back.
      I've given a more detailed answer in the above comment.

      Delete
    2. when I try to load it in, it says Unsupported VisualBoyAdvance save game version.

      Delete
    3. Not sure what the problem is but try this method-
      Place the other version rom in the same folder as the current one. Rename the current .sav file to match the name of the other version exactly (gamev1.sav to gamev2.sav). Now when you open the other version, your data should show up on the start screen.

      Delete
    4. It is not allowing me to rename

      Delete
    5. When I rename, it doesnt let me have two files with the same name

      Delete
    6. I don't understand. You should have 3 files- gamev1.gba, gamev1.sav, gamev2.gba. If there's a gamev2.sav already in the folder, remove it from the folder temporarily. Then rename gamev1.sav to gamev2.sav.
      Sorry, I'm not very good at explaining..

      Delete
    7. No no, you were great! Even though I didn't get it, thank you a lot for the explanations. I think something is wrong with my save files and my VBA emulator. :)

    2. It might be due to not receiving (or updating) the Pokedex. If that's not the case, maybe try a different emulator? Also, are you playing the + or the Final version?

    1. Well had you finished all the events before the catch arceus event cause im already on the 2 region bro

      Delete
    2. I think he's talking about the glitch in LP+ (Light Platinum Plus). The solution is to load the save into a different version of Light Platinum that doesn't have the glitch, complete the event, and then load the save back. Here's a simple tutorial if you don't know how-
      Save inside the game, before the event in LP+.
      Download Light Platinum Final (from above) and move it to the folder Light Platinum Plus is in (if it's not already). If you didn't rename anything, you should have the files light-platinum-plus.zip and light-platinum-final.zip (.gba is also fine) in the same folder.
      Find light-platinum-plus.sav in the same folder and rename it to light-platinum-final.sav.
      Now open Light Platinum Final in MyBoy and complete the event.
      Rename light-platinum-final.sav back to light-platinum-plus.sav and you should now be able to continue in LP+.

      Delete
    3. Nuckle sean, we're same problem.. I did that but maybe the save of LP + AND LP final is not compatible although the save was continue but the attack o my pokemon affected.. Every time i attack the foe the game was freeze.. :(

      Delete
    4. Hmm... but other people said that it worked. I will check around and see if there's another solution. Make a copy of your .sav file before you try anything just in case.

      Delete
    5. Please try this link. It's called light-platinum-test.zip, so do the same thing as above wit this instead of final. It probably won't work, but just in case.
      Again, make a backup of the .sav file before doing anything.

    1. Since this glitch only appears to happen in LP+, it seems you can save before the event, load your save into a different version, complete the event, save, load it back into LP+. But I have no idea how to do this on iOS, sorry.

      Delete
    2. Okay, I've changed something that hopefully fixes the glitch. Download the rom here. Replace the older rom with this one exactly, meaning delete the old one and place this one in that same folder. Let me know if this works.

  40. Hey, I've been playing this since yesterday, currently going to the 3rd gym, so far so good. Besides the features you've already added, there's also, Decapitalization on Items in Bag and when you find them, Pokemon names in battle screen, Pokedex and Summary (attacks decap as well) Cities and Town names also decap when you get to the town, but when another trainer or NPC mentions them it's still in capital letters, also Trainer Type and Name in battle are decap, including important Characters as "RED"(Outworld) "Pkmn Trainer Red" in a battle., other feature I've seen so far is that some pokemon of the 4th and 5th gen have their original cries, except for Sinnoh Initials. Just a comment I, personally think this would be the best of all pokemon hacks, if it had Fully decap and Day and Night System. I love the sprites of old pokemon on the 5th gen pack.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It also has new moves post 3rd gen!I've beaten the first elite four, currently going through the 7th Lauren gym, the bug so far is that when you just get Axew on Drakebreath City, sometimes when you go to it's summary the game frezes, so what I did is that I put summary of other pokemon and go to Axew, it sometimes work it sometimes didn't, I did this till I got it Adamant Nature, then I saved, when I got out of the house, I was looking at it's summary it was good, it didn't freeze and no problems with it's evolutions.! Only the exp you get after defeating Aggron, it's a lot less then what you should get. But a lot of others were fixed, such as Salamences, Metagross and others that in the original game did't give you original exp they should at beating them, or the ones that gave you too much, like Venipede.

      Then close the emulator, look where the rom is, and delete the .sav file for the game. Alternatively, you can simply rename the rom.

  45. So your basically telling me final is a gen 3 remake with no PSS?

    1. It's not a remake, but yeah, no PSS. It was made a long time ago, and even now, Ruby's PSS doesn't work properly (I've heard).

    1. Make sure to delete any save files (.sav, .sgm, .sa1, etc.) for the game first.

  50. The level curve is ridiculously steep so prepare for the most grinding you'll ever do in a Pokemon game! As of writing this I have 6 and a half hours clocked in and I haven't even gotten to the first gym!!!

  51. hello knuckle san i hope you can help me.
    I am playing the + version and i now read that there are some bugs, i know i can get out of the arceus bug by renaming my save file and so forth, but can i do this with the world champion bug too? Or do i HAVE to play the final version to complete the whole game?
    Another question, in my lp+ game i cant see my pokemons abilities, the pokedex shows the wrong index (eg spheal has torthics info) and the moves doesnt say if its phs or special - is there a patch for these problems?

    I hope you can help me

    1. Yeah, the World Championship was never fixed in +, so I don't think there's anything you can do. Not sure about the abilites and dex. + is actually an unofficial release. The person who made it said he would release updates to fix the problems but he never did.

      Delete
    2. Okay but can i just convert my save file to a "final" save file when i go to the world championship or do i have to do it now? Or do i have to restart the game completely and play the "final" version?

      Thanks for the answers

      Delete
    3. You can always try. If you use your + save in Final, some of your Pokemon may change.
      If you're on VBA, download and open Final and go to File -> Import -> Battery file, and select the .sav file from +. If not, it's a little bit more complicated. Which emulator are you using?

      Delete
    4. I am indeed using Visual gambeboy advance emulator, so it shouldnt be a problem

      Delete
    5. Cool. Just remember to save inside the game (Saving… please don't turn off the power), in a Pokemon Center before trying it (in +).

    1. + is a modification of the original. It adds new Pokemon and moves but it has a few extra glitches and the World Championship doesn't work properly. Everything else is complete.

    1. Save in-game and then reset (go back to the title screen). If that doesn't, you may have to use the walk-through-walls cheat.

    1. The recent one would be +. But that has a some extra bugs and the final event doesn't work.

    2. Is that the same with the other one? If so which would be better to play

    3. I've only played Final (a long time ago). And I think everything work fine.
      + has the Physical/Special split, and new Pokemon and moves.

  57. Which is better one?plus or final?
    What would you rate each of them out of ten?

    Replies
    1. I've only ever played Final, and that too very long ago, so I'm not the best person to ask for a rating. They're the same game for the most part. Choose + if you want more newer gen Pokemon and the PSS split. Otherwise, Final is the safer bet.
      In the survey I am conductin (link), Light Platinum has got a pretty high rating of 4.07/5.

  58. Hey guys, can someone help me? I have a MacBook, so I use OpenEmu to play ROMS on, but whenever I play Light Platinum, the game freezes whenever I am about to evolve a Pokemon. If someone can explain to me why that's so, I would greatly appreciate it!

    1. Yeah, that's a known problem. I believe it's the mGBA core which causes it. If possible, switch to a different emulator or figure out how to change the GBA core in OpenEmu.

  60. Hello Knuckle San. Can I ask what's the difference between light platinum plus and final? (By the way, it's good but sometimes it freezes). I'm playing the plus version and here are some of my concerns, I can't get into the beauty contest in central town because it suddenly freezes and I tried to get my egg (eevee and ditto's) from the day care man but whenever I say 'yes' it freezes too. Sometimes, when I fight other trainers, the words below were scrambled. And when I ran sometimes, there's this glitch. The pokemon's information in the pokedex is not theirs (eg. Whenever I caught a dratini, the info below says about geodude). And why is there no map? This is my first time playing a hack version hihihihihihi sorry :)

    1. Plus is actually not an official version, but a mod by a fan. It does have extra bugs and glitches, and I believe the final event doesn't work. I wouldn't recommend it if it's your first time playing a hack, as you may have to cheat or do some weird stuff to get around some parts. Although it does have the PSS split, and some extra newer gen Pokemon.
      In general, rom hacks, including the official Final version of this hack, will have bugs and glitches. This is because most hacks are made by a single person who doesn't have the time to test and fix everything.
      If you don't mind switching, I would say try Glazed (link) as your first. It's a really good hack and more free of bugs than this one if I remember correctly. This hack is great too, and it was my first as well, so you can't really go wrong either way.
