Pokemon Infinite Fusion FAQs Issues and Fixes

How to Install and Update the Game (Current Version 6.0.5)

NOTE: Using the installer will result in an error saying you are missing a .zip file. This is FINE. That .zip isn’t used anymore, you can play the game without it

Current Big Bugs:

  1. New Launcher has a lot of bugs. MANY reports of Crashing, not opening, etc.
  2. If you “Repair Game” with the new Launcher, it deletes all of your sprites. 

Question 1: Difference between Game.exe and Alt Launcher

Answer: 

Game.exe downloads sprites as you encounter them over the internet. You do not need to download monthly packs at all, they are downloaded over the internet.

Alternate launcher you need to download all the sprites beforehand and it runs them off your computer locally. 

Pros of Alt Launcher

  1. Better in Game performance than Game.exe.
  2. If an online service goes down, you can still play.

Cons:

  1. Long loading/black screen before you get to the main menu
  2. You have to manage the sprites yourself and download the monthly sprite packs.

Question 2: Why aren’t my sprites being indexed

Answer:

  • It depends if you have seen a Pokemon or not or how far in the game you are. Pokemon are only indexed as you see them. When you see a pokemon, an index folder is created and all sprites with that number go into the folder. If you haven’t seen the Pokemon , then it doesn’t get a folder and it is not indexed 
  • If you get Sprites.zip from the Base Sprites, it contains all indexed folders so all images in customer battlers will get indexed afterwards causing your game to say thousands of sprites will be imported and replaced 
  • So it just depends on if you download all the sprites locally or how many pokemon you’ve come across. If you see a bunch of images in customer battlers that means you don’t have a corresponding folder in the indexed folder for that Pokémon

Question 3: Is this game supported on Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, Steam Deck?

Answer: No. This game was developed and intended for Windows. We have found ways to have them playable on those other platforms, but they are not officially supported.

Question 4: Does my Save File get deleted updating the game or reinstalling?

Answer: No, your save file is stored in a different folder outside of the game files. Deleting your folder, updating your game, and reinstalling doesn’t not delete the save file.

Common Issues and Fixes

Issue 1: I open the Alternate Launcher and I get an error like this

Fix: To use the Alternate Launcher, it is required to download the base Sprites (Sprites.zip) + FULL custom sprite packs from Download.

Issue 2: My sprites are showing up invisible or with question marks.

Fix: 

  1. Turn off Download Sprites option in setting. 
  2. Leave the menu (if you don’t, this won’t work). 
  3. Go back to Settings. 
  4. Turn option back on.

Issue 3: I get an error message saying Error opening OpenAL Device

Fix: Plug in headphones. You have an audio device issue where it can’t find an audio device, but headphones can fix it.

Issue 4: Wild Encounters aren’t working no matter how long I walk in Grass

Fix: If you recently updated the game and/or are doing a randomized run, you need to randomize your encounters again via the guy in the black suit from the Pokémon Center on the 2nd floor. He has the option to “reshuffle wild pokemon”.

Issue 5: The system cannot find the path specified.

Fix: You didn’t extract InfiniteFusion.zip before opening Install_or_update.bat.When you extract your game files, it should look like this:

Issue 6: I can’t find my Save File and can I transfer to another device

Fix: There is a shortcut in your game folder that takes you to it. Also yes, you can move your save file from 1 device to another as long as you put the save in the same path. 

PATH: C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\infinitefusion

  • Keybindings are also stored in this path.

NOTE: You can’t change the file path of this save file at all. Even if you play the game on a different drive or USB, save file will ALWAYS look for the save file here.

Issue 7: Can I update my game from version 4.x to 5.x

Fix: No. The story has changed so much since then, the game is not compatible with the 4.x version anymore.

Issue 8: Stuck on Black Screen or getting an error on black screen

Fix: Be patient. Especially if you are using Alt Launcher. It is known to have slow load times until you get to the game menu. This is where sprite images are being indexed and sorted. Depending on your internet and computer, this can take some time.

Issue 9: Error from Script ‘<internal:marshal>’ or incompatible marshal file format

Fix: Incompatible save file. You are trying to use an old save file that is either corrupt or too old to play on the current version.

Issue 10: Certificate issue when running the Install_or_update.bat file

Fix: This version of the installer (InfiniteFusion.zip) has a certificate fix : Download

Issue 11: Android: I beat Elite 4 and it gets stuck OR Android is throwing an error

Fix: This game is not meant to be played on android so there are bugs. You need to use: 

JoiPlay and RPGM plugin to [1.20.28 (Public Beta)](https://www.patreon.com/posts/81829260)

Also change engine type to RPG Maker (mkxp-z) Long tap on game icon –> Edit

Issue 12: Android: Map is not loading at all

Fix: Yes this works on 6.0.2.

Long tap on game icon –> Patch

Then re-enter the location

Issue 13: My game is slow. Waiting 30 seconds after trainer battle or in load screens.

Fix: Use Alt launcher if Game.exe is slow for you. You need to download sprites locally for alt launcher to work.
