Pokémon Diamond & Pearl (Mar 17, 2006 prototype)
|Pokémon Diamond & Pearl (Mar 17, 2006 prototype)|
A prototype of Pokémon Diamond & Pearl, dated March 17, 2006. This prototype was compiled from a source code commit dated March 27, 2006.
While this prototype refers to a single point of development, several different builds are associated with this development snapshot, due to the game being split into both Diamond and Pearl versions.
Note that these builds were not pre-compiled and were instead manually built from compilable milestones in the source code repository. These builds represent early builds of the Japanese version of the game and were compiled with debug mode enabled. Oddly, despite this build being able to be compiled as separate "Diamond" and "Pearl" versions, both game names will appear on the title screen, with the name that appears seemingly being random upon each start-up.
The .gmm and .imd files are used to date these builds, as they appear more representative of the actual changes between respective builds than the commit dates. That is to say, the data that is included within each commit appears to be quite a bit earlier than the commits themselves, and so dates baked into the files themselves are used instead. Note that these are not technically build dates, as the files were not pre-compiled and were instead manually built from compilable milestones in the source code repository. The commit dates that these builds were compiled from - as well as the commit dates on some of the most important and notable files within the code - have been included for the sake of completeness.
Note that the MD5 hashes listed here are obviously dependent on how the builds were compiled, and are instead representative of what is perhaps the most common compiled version of each of these files currently in the wild.
