View Full Version : Hack of the Week Voting! (For 2/24/08)

February 16th, 2008, 8:35 PM
I thought we should get this idea started. Basically, HOTW is used to let the newcomers know they're doing a good job, and to get people interested in their work.

1. A hack can only win HOTW once.
2. You may only vote for a hack that had it's topic posted at most 31 days ago. Anything 32 days or older cannot be entered. (As in, any topic made on January 15th 2008 or earlier cannot be entered.)
3. You cannot vote for a hack that is closed, or the author quit.
4. Give a reason why you want to vote for this hack. Not just "It's good".

There will be two categories. One for Pokemon Hacks, and one for other. You can vote ONCE for each category.

Eligible (Pokemon):
Secrets and Rumors (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=125910)
Neo Thieves (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=125782)
Psyichic Pink (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=125734)
Enemy Red and Blue (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=123845)
Blue Fire (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=123590)
A Rising Legend (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=123567)

Eligible (Other):
Mario World X (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=126455)
Super Luigi 64 (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=125965)

Example of a Vote:

"I Vote For: Secrets and Rumors
Why: This hack can really take advantage of the crazy theories we had as kids, and make them come to life. I think this is a very good idea, and should have been done a long time ago."

I vote for: Pokemon: A Rising Legend
Reason: It has a fantastic use of Palette Editing, New Overworlds and Tile Editing. Also from what I've seen it would appear to be well scripted. The story could do with a bit of work, but it can't be perfect, right? I believe this will be an even great hack in the near future. :)

I vote for Pokemon Secrets and Rumours
Reason: It is a very unique hack and I think it will be great to see all those R/B/Y rumours from when we were younger

"I Vote For: Pokemon a Rising Legend
Why: This hack has outstanding graphics, which is very important to me, also the author posted a video on youtube of a script, which looks quite nice."

I vote For: Secrets and Rumors
Why: When I was a kid, I can remember that I thought "maybe its a mew under that truck" and stuff like that, and now It may be true ^_^

I Vote For: Mario World X
Why: As good as those Pokémon hacks look, and since I'm not going to vote for myself, my vote goes to Mario World X. Simply because it's a hack of a great game, and I've played the beta and it's quite good. Makes me feel like hacking Super Mario World. Besides, it's quite unique. It's not a Pokémon hack, it's something... different.

I vote for: Pokemon Secrets and Rumors
It's a nice twist on a Pokemon Hack and I have always wondered is mew really under that truck??? :)

February 17th, 2008, 1:55 PM
pokemon secrets and rumors

I really am interested in this hack, and i want to see how all the old rumors are brought back.

February 17th, 2008, 2:28 PM
Pokémon Secrets and Rumours
No offence to the other hacks, they're all great, it's time for a hack that's just fun. I spent months trying to get onto the ladder on Cinnabar Gym, now I will finally claim Pikablue for my own!

February 18th, 2008, 7:20 AM
I vote for: Pokemon A Rising Legend
Reason: Just look at it, the graphics look so great, it also has very good ideas in it like mud, which is very hard to put into a hack. The tiles and palletes look amazing but the story is not so good, thats the only let down. But the overall hack is brilliant.


February 18th, 2008, 1:17 PM
I vote for: Pokemon Secrets and Rumors.
Why: I'd love to see a pokemon game, in which I can do all the stuff I spent hours trying to do in my old gameboy playing Pokemon Red and Blue back when I was 8 years old. And also revives me old memories of my old friends when we spent probably days talking about GB Pokemon and the TCG. It's a brilliant idea for a hack, as we shall be playing Pokemon Red&Blue with the possibility of doing everything we couldn't do back then, thanks of all of that stuff being made up and not real.

Secrets and Rumors
It's a nice hack with many nice features.

February 18th, 2008, 1:59 PM
Secrets and rumours hands down.
It is a mix of pokemon and dumd stuff our friends told us about.
It can't get any better..can it?

February 19th, 2008, 1:43 AM
I vote for: Pokemon A Rising Legend.
Why. Awesome graphics, paletts looks briliant. Story needs work but ok(I'm not the best story maker too). Scripting is verry well done.

February 19th, 2008, 1:38 PM
I vote for: Pokemon Neo Rocket Thieves
Why: The game sounds ingenious. I have played (and beaten) every Pokemon game out there, but I have never been as amazed by a plot as I am with this game.

February 19th, 2008, 2:32 PM
My vote goes for secret and rumours...
Why?What I can say besides that everything was told here?
I want to cut the truck and get my mew @_@

I vote for: Secrets and Rumors
Reason: Solid looking game combined with an interesting idea. Graphics still need some development, but out of the elegible hacks, it's the one I'm most interested at (and the one I know a bit more about, since it was around on other ocassions)

February 20th, 2008, 5:23 PM
I vote for Pokémon: Secrets and Rumours because it is nice to see a Pokémon Gold hack and it looks like it'll be good fun when it's done...

February 20th, 2008, 5:33 PM
I vote for.....
Secrets and Rumors
I always thought that starting of in kanto in Gold would be good,and later I can
Well,not just that,it's to see how the rumors would feel like if it was real
Omg,Orange Islands in gold,thats cool

February 20th, 2008, 6:23 PM
Pokemon:Neo Rocket Thieves.
This hack looks very interesting and looks like a good one to wait for a beta/alpha.
A trillion thumbs up.

Psychic Pink
Why: I love their detailed towns and I liked their storyline as well.

Well, 24th has passed some time ago, so I guess the voting should have ended, and by the looks of it, Secrets and Rumors won this time.

I'm not good at awards making stuff, so, if there's someone who could do something nice, then we could give it to Skeetendo so it can be put in their thread, don't you think?

(Oh, and I'm not sure if the "Other" counted as another category with its own award. If so, then there should be another award for Mario World X... the only voted hack in that "Other" category)

[EDIT]: Oh, yeah. Congrats to Skeetendo for winning! Hope it helps you to keep yourself(ves?) motivated!

February 29th, 2008, 8:35 AM
Oh crap i forgot about this, I'll start a new voting on Sunday. I'll prepare the awards later, gratz to Skeetendo.
