Quicker Soft Resetting (QoL) - A Request for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Request Open

This Request is available to take on. You could deliver it and receive the point bounty as a reward for your efforts.
Currently, soft resetting in this game is garbage. It takes about 50 seconds to get from the home menu, into a static encounter, then back to the home menu. So I was wondering if anyone could either make a mod that adds in a soft reset combo like the pre-switch days, where it loads back to the current save, or just fix the 30 second load time that BDSP has.


In order to receive the points bounty, you should fulfil the following requirements.

  1. Method to speed up soft resetting

    Just as an update with this:

    WK_SCENE_GAME_START was found. When this flag is set to 0, the game launches directly into the save -- bypassing the intro cutscene. This is used on first launch to go straight to the Rowan cutscene, and can be changed back to 0 after a save is made.

    As such, all that's left to inhibit SRing is the 25-30ish seconds of loading time, which definitely feels like it could be reduced.
