Speedrunning of Pokemon Crystal Clear

This is mostly meant as a record of runs made in Crystal Clear. Definitions for categories are here, if you are looking for a reference, too. There is a lot of information to help with routing in the docs. You may also discussing routing, other faster tricks, or an idea for another category in #speedrunning on the discord.

any%
This Category is about like any other any%, just get from start to finish (beating the E4) faster than anyone else.

Silver%
Beat the Mt. Silver battle and get all 16 badges.

starter%
Same criteria as Silver%, but with just your starter. Any other pokemon are used as HM slaves.

Run Submissions
Runs address to be done in video format. This is to verify validity and honest play, the game screen and a timer should both be in the video. Video submissions should be sent to nephitejnf to be verified and then they’ll be posted on the site. Video submissions should prefferably be done with Youtube videos for ease of embeding.
Submissions will be separated by versions. Submissions for the current version are cut off after a new version is pushed out.

Transferring Save to 3DS

hex

Grab your .sav file. In BGB the proper file is generated automatically, and in VBA-M you simply choose Export > Battery File.

Rename the .sav to sav.dat.

Using a hex editor, remove the last two lines of data from the .dat.

hex

On your 3DS, export your save data. We used JKSM!

On a 3DS with Crystal Clear installed and using JKSM, navigate to Crystal Clear and select Export Save.

You will be prompted to create a folder – remember the name!

jksm-768x153

Turn off your 3DS and put its SD card into your computer (or use an FTP client).

Navigate to the folder made with JKSM and replace that sav.dat in that folder with the one you made. Note that the folder in the root of your SD will be JKSV, not JKSM.

ftp

Back on your 3DS, launch JKSM and import the save data!

Note: Any dumped 3DS save renamed with a .sav file extension will work in your emulator!
