GAME INFORMATION
Engine: 1635 - Pokémon Fire Red (U)(Squirrels)
Creator: Frostbite / Dewgong
Language: English

Story
General plot summary.
http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c292/Polar_Spirit/bar.png

After months of waiting, you finally get your acceptance letter to the regional league. Finally the chance to follow in the footsteps of your brother, a great Pokémon trainer. With goal set, you begin to start your journey as a Pokémon trainer growing with each challenge. Working your way through the ranks and eventually, to the top. However, as soon as your journey begins something has happened. A disturbance has undergone, strange Pokémon trainers have been going around the region causing havoc. Their goal, however, is out of the ordinary. What it is currently is completely unknown... will it conflict with your own? Along the way you will meet people who can either aid or hinder you on your quest. There is more to them then you first thought, however.

Project Overview
Some general information.
http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c292/Polar_Spirit/bar.png

Well this is my first hack that I'll actually try to make an effort on. I'm determined to complete this hack and use the best of my abilities on it. My goal is simple - to create an entirely new and fresh Pokemon RPG using the Fire Red engine but still keep the charm of the past Pokemon RPGs. I hope to implement new features (especially D/P features) and graphics, tilesets, etc. I'll make an effort while making this hack and try to create a nice and enjoyable gameplay experience.

The screenshots are just an example.

Yay it's finally back!
I always looked for updates on this hack, I don't know why people didn't post in the showcase much but meh.
I see you've changed the palettes from that greenish blue colour, I reckon those palettes looked better.
Did you start again from scratch, cause it looks like not many events are put in.

Yeah, I didn't like the older palettes because it seemed a little too green to me. It seemed like the trees and the grass matched. I'm sticking with the default palettes for now.
Yes, I did start from scratch again. That's why it seems that there are hardly any events in the game. However, I've been working on smaller stuff first. I've been repointing text and hex editing some items to my likings. It may not seem like it but I did get a few scripts done.

I got the dish from Emerald's Mossdeep Space Center.

I'm glad that this thread is generating positive feedback so far... thanks to everyone who posted and complimented so far. I appreciate it.

Sorry if it may seem like there are virtually no scripts in the game. There are, but, I just haven't took any screenshots of them, here's some of them.

Now here's someone I'd like to introduce and has something to do with the main plot.

Meet Wallace
---
Wallace is a recurring character that will appear several times in the game, much like Steven in R/S/E but with a much bigger role. Along the way he will help you with several things and help you obtain valuable items. However, what are his motives for being in this region instead of Hoenn?
Find out later in the game![/css-div][/css-div][/css-div][/css-div]

I can't believe that this hack is back! I've been waiting for sooo long...

It looks amazing so far Frostbite. I love the attention to detail you have put in. I can't wait to feature this in RHN. The mixture of tiles are amazing. The mapping perfectly reflects Nintendo's style and I'm sure the scripting will be very impressive. I'll be sure to keep this thread in the first page where it belongs with constant nagging for updates! >.<

Is that a custom Wallace OW or are my eyes playing tricks on me??

The Wallace OW is custom (made by me) and is FR/LG styled.

School started a few days ago so I won't have as much free time as I once did so I'll only be able to work on the hack on weekends. I'm pretty much done with most of the mapping for Beta 1. I've added some screenshots so you may want to take a look at those. I'll try to get more events in soon, hopefully. Beta 1 leads up to the 3rd gym in Dordoran City which leads me to the next update:

http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c292/Polar_Spirit/d5.png

Dordoran City Gym

The 3rd gym in the game which is assessable after completion of a certain event (which I'll show in a future update). It specializes in Electric types. To get through the gym you need to push switches on the walls to remove the beams to open up new rooms. Press the correct order of switches to open up the path to the Gym Leader. Simple, no? Along the way you'll face trainers which will make this a little more difficult. I'd really suggest bringing status healing items when facing this gym.

The new screenshots look great, Frostbite!

So, that last screenshot is of the Pokemon League right? It looks like you've changed how you get there, have you completely re-made the region or have you used some maps from the old Azure Horizons?

The 3rd gym looks like it'll be fun! Its sort of like a mixture between Blaine and Lt. Surge's gyms.

Yeah, I'm going to stick with the traditional plot formula... however, the main plot will have some twits to it later on.

Thanks, the last screen is that of the Pokemon League. I did change how you get there which will require quite a few HM moves.

I've pretty much re-made the region however some of the first towns in the game still have their original maps from the old rom.

I'm back... the hack has been on hiatus mainly because I haven't had much time to work on it. I'm on vacation now so I'm picking it up again. So far I've been polishing up the maps and other things to get those out of the way. I'm working on scripting now, so I hope to have a beta released by December. I really don't have much to show for an update but here's a little graphical change I've made to Scarlet Town...

And his tiles ARE changed, and they look perfect. :P

Anyway, nice new updates, Frostbite! I like how you added some R/S/E additions to it, along with adding the starters of the 3rd Generation. I also like how you kept the basic formula of FR/LG. Good luck!

Those updates look great Frostbite! I love the attention to detail you've put in. I'm not so keen about the starters, I would've liked to see starters that haven't been used in other games. I've played with those starters so much. :S

The new textbox looks beautiful as well. I look forward to playing Beta 1. :D

It's been a while but I'm still working on the hack. Recently I've been editing lots of Trainers with ease with the new Advance Trainer tool (thanks Hackmew!). I've been playing through the hack a little to see how everything is going and everything seems to be going fine, no major glitches so far.

Now, I've been working on some other things in the hack as well. I've successfully made another gym.. this time with custom tiles all made by me which brings me to the next update!

Scarlet Town Gym

The second gym in the game which specializes in Fire types. Navigate your way through this 2 floor gym battling Trainers along your way to the Leader! Simple concept, no catches here! However, the leader is remarkably tough so be prepared.

Hey everyone!

I've been working on the hack a lot recently (and between the time since I last updated) and everything has been going out great. Most of the events are completed for Beta 1 however there still has to be a few scripts that I need to make. The next set of screens will be the last I'll show until Beta 1 is released. It dosen't show much other than mapping but events are there! I don't want to spoil much to you guys right now. Azure City is completely remapped and so are some other routes. I'm hoping to have Beta 1 released around this month maybe.

Ooh, spiffy!
R/S/E music is my favorite :)

I'm curious as to how you enabled running indoors. If you did it the way I think you did it (making an indoor map's settings similar to those of an outdoor map's settings under the Header tab in AdvanceMap) then you would most likely run into problems. The main ones that come to mind are the facts that you can ride a bike indoors (which I think is pretty poor etiquette^^) and being able to use Fly inside (which is just plain physically impossible). Though I'd be happy if you could prove me wrong ;)

Nah, I simply enabled running indoors by editing map's data string (not its settings).
Therefore, biking and flying indoors will still not be possible.

No, Frostbite shouldn't change the tiles, because he already has changed a good amount of them for a FireRed hack. He already has changed many. Also, no, tiles do not make a difference in a hack and attract people to it. Just look at Pokémon rijonAdventures and Pokémon Liquid Ocean, which are some of the best FireRed hacks with hardly any tile changes.

New update: I've finally got the worldmap inserted!

http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c292/Polar_Spirit/worldmap2.png

Yeah I know it's not perfect (since there are blank tiles at the bottom) but it's better than nothing I guess. The map may change slightly in the public beta that is to be released. The position data isn't done yet hence the player being in a wrong area but I'll get that all sorted once I've gotten all the areas named. As for the little tile error at the bottom I'll get that fixed too in time.

A lot of progress has been done recently. I've been doing a TON of scripting (which isn't very fun, mind you). Most of the areas and scripts for beta 1 have been completed but I still have a fair amount of work to do. I've decided to end beta 1 at the 3rd gym. That's all for now.

I'll probably include the program along with the patch but I just wanted to say this to you guys.

Hey everyone. I think it's time to say that beta 1 is near completion. All I need to do is fix up some text and things like that. All of the events are finished.

Now, there's something that held me back a little. I decided to completely scrap Azure City's gym and relocate the 1st gym to another location. With that, I also changed the gym's type too along with a completely new leader. I had to completely redo the 1st gym but it was really fun and I feel that it's way better than the former first gym. So here are some screens, enjoy.

You can walk on the flower pot in the player's room.

Some movement permissions are missing in the player's house.

I know about the world map error, it still has the position data of Kanto's world map. I'll get to changing that later on.

The movement position errors have been fixed. If you've already downloaded the game, download the new file on the first page and patch it to your rom to fix the errors.

Edit: Problem with the 2 Water Pulse TMs resolved, movement errors fixed.

Just finished playing the beta and it was fantastic! Truly one of the best hacks at the moment. Should be a very strong contender for HotY (if there is one this year). The mapping is some of the best I've ever seen. The scripting is really solid too. My only complaint would be some of the RSE tiles. They just don't seem to fit in some areas.

Looking forward to more updates soon!

EDIT: This has been bugging me for a long time (I thought someone else would've pointed it out first). Are what appears to be tile errors in the lower left part of the screenshot in your signature intentional? I noticed you fixed the tile error at the northern part of the ledge so I assumed there was a reason for not fixing the mountain.

Try overlaying those 2 parts of those rock tiles in a-map and see what you get... it results in some black spaces (the transparent color not being filled in) so I used the other mountian blocks that are filled in... it's too difficult to explain I'm just going to pull the screenshot from my signature. :s

New update (kinda).

I've been working on the new areas for beta 2 and they've been going good so far. I would post some screenshots but my rom is on my other computer. Now I've been working on some other things too lately... mostly on the things with the hero. I've made his backsprite but I have no clue which to use. I'd like some opinions from you guys.

To me, they both look the same, except the top one has recolored arms...
If you resprite the arms a little to make it look more cloth-like, then I'll stick with the top one ;)

Good Luck!

In Beta 1, I'd just like to point out that Snorunt's sprite has some strange transparencies of its facial features. I found this out by using Confusion with my Ralts and found that the Background of the attack was standing out on Snorunt's features.

Also the mapping need improvement.

I personally prefer the one with short-sleeves. It could just be the fact that I don't own many long-sleeve shirts (it doesn't get very cold where I live) but I think he looks better with short-sleeves. I'm not a spriter so I couldn't tell you which one is actually sprited better but aesthetically, the bottom one is more appealing.

Lady Berlitz
August 12th, 2009, 06:43 AM
I'd say use the longer sleeves. Simply because it compliments on the name of the game and the temperature there, and it also adds originality to the original Pokémon games. BUT, the sprite needs to improved, because his arms don't look thick enough to have long sleeves.

Recently, I've been working on polishing things up in the hack. I've been redesigning a few old maps and I'm planning on adding a couple of new events in some of the earlier areas to make things more interesting. Scarlet Town has gotten a complete redesign. I don't want to reveal any of its new mapping until you guys play in Beta 2. I also made new Trainer sprites as well. Jay and Leon has gotten a redesign and I've (finally) made one for the hero.

It's a problem when you use a fadescreen command in an area with the dark weather attributed to it. I'll make sure to fix it next beta by using an alternative fadescreen command.

It's another way of saying "goodbye". Hm, I guess it isn't used outside the United States.

Frostbite, the video was great. I can't wait to play the next beta. Speaking of betas, after watching the video, I went ahead and continued playing Beta 1 and it was amazing. The amount of backtracking was somewhat annoying but for some reason I didn't mind it as much as I usually do. I'm going to go play some more right now.

Oh and Quinn's Illumise was a real pain in the neck to bring down. Silver Wind KOed my Ralts, Shock Wave KOed my Pidgey, and Water Pulse KOed Combusken. I had to backtrack (again) to Azure Bridge and train a whole bunch and even then I just barely squeezed by. Eh, maybe that's what you were aiming for.

That's not entirely true. I still hear it used from time to time. Now, I personally don't use it but that's not to say that I don't know a lot of people who still use it on a regular basis.

Back on-topic:
Wow. I just beat the 2nd Gym (as a side note, I particularly liked the Scarlet Town gym. The tiles were amazing, the layout was really cool, and to top it off, Jay's sprite was awesome) and I gotta say, I haven't enjoyed playing a hack this much since Rescue Rangers. Other than a few spelling/grammatical errors, it was a flawless experience. Though I would like to point out that the player can obtain two Water Pulse TMs. One is on Forest Coast and the other is in Scarlet Forest. Other than that, it was perfect. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us next :)

Nevermind about the two Water Pulse TMs. I looked through the thread and saw that they had already been pointed out and fixed. I must still have the old beta.

Haha, I intentionally made gym battles a challenge than most other games (ie. the wide variety of moves illumise has) because I feel that it'll be more fun that way. It'll only get tougher onwards... of course I don't want people breezing through the game. I want them to enjoy it fully and I believe that the difficulty satisfies that.

as I did with Mythic Legends, Ill spot a mini review of this game for those interested.

The Good
- Nice change of pace with the visuals and a decent story to boot
- Very Good Variety on the Wild Pokemon available
- Gym battles are genuinely challenging and thoroughly enjoyable


The Bad
- you could've left the VS Seeker for us the end of the beta to keep things interesting. even though you said you left extras at the end, I didnt really find any unless I experienced them without realizing it.


Comments
honestly, this is a superb job for a debut hack, I enjoyed myself thoroughly, and the challenging gyms were a breath of fresh air, using competitive movesets. only thing Is it took me by surprise when I first battled Quinn, so first time round, and admittedly, she mowed me. so I was thinking to give those with less experience a "heads-up", is to give a few of the Tundra grunts a pokemon with an egg move or two. but if this is your first hack, I cant wait to see what you'll bring in the future. Im waiting for your next release.

8.5/10.

you should release beta 2 to celebrate hoty

Seriously though, I can't wait to see those updates. You can show your minimal amount of doubters, how good you really are!

Is the name of the 3rd Gym Leader Katie? I saw it in an earlier screenshot. I like Azure City, also you inserted Oceanic Museum's tileset which is cool and interesting.

Just a note - this hack seems to be overqualified for Progressing Hacks.

I agree.
As Hack of the Year, it should be in hacks showcase.

Nice game idea! It is simple, but fun. I hope you finish this game, and it may turn out into a great game to play. Does you have a female custom character too? Im a girl, and I play with them. If not, I suggest getting one made. Remember there are some people that likes the female character to play, way more than the male one. I rate many games that does not have the female one simply 4 stars. It is not the bestest ones. Your game really deserves to be the hack of the year. Congratulations!

My Rate: 4 Stars
Why four stars: The game story is somewhat classic, not so many ideas, but that is not poor work! It may be way better than mine, but remember that the idea of Pokémon Trainers getting havoc is a classic of some PokéHacks! Sorry for my critique. I know you worked hard.

My Feedback: Great
Why great: You should edit some of the story. The Pokémon Trainers havoc is classic, and why don't you edit some more of the map? I mean, it could be a little more edited, and not so simple, but, you don't need to do it if you don't want to. However, the game is great and somewhat fun.

Afterall Speak: It is a sucessfull game!
Why: It has everything organized, a great but classic story, and a cute character! Congratulations!!!

Good luck with the game!

How is it? Is it great?

What is a Pokemon Trainer havoc? I seen the seven gym leaders in one of your posts and it looks cool to me. Congrats!

I now realize that this hack is probably the best one here in so many opinions, the overall quality of the maps and the sprites goes above and beyond. If only I would'of looked at this before, it would'of won me over more than Ligh Platinum. To all people that say that someone else should'of won HotY, they are clearly wrong. I Love the beta and I can't wait for next release, keep up the great work!

Here are some screens of Beta 2.

http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c292/Polar_Spirit/beta27.png http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c292/Polar_Spirit/beta26.png

The screens show a bit of one of the big Team Tundra events before the 3rd Gym. There's also another screen of Dordoran City and the Sewage Treatment Plant.

Also, as for the 4th screen, it's a little fun event accessible after you clear Team Tundra from Dordoran City. A little kid want's to play hide and seek with you and if you find him enough times he'll give you something special and useful. He can be hiding anywhere around the city which means he can be in buildings too. Also, his hiding spots are well hidden, so you'll have a tough time finding him. ;)

The OW of the Team Tundra Grunt is very awesome.
And hide and seek eh?

I find this kind of script kinda awesome.
I never lose in finding someone in Hide and Seek.

Hopefully, I'll find that lil' kid.

I like the fence tiles outside the building, is it the Sewage Treatment Plant? Also, I like the Team Tundra overworlds.

I assume it has all the newer legendaries like Darkrai and Giratina?

If they are in it sorry for asking because I havent played the game yet, and if not would it be possible to add them to it?

Nice OW! If I will play this, I'll choose the girl! The hair is so nice, specially the bangs and the hair color. I'm starting to like this hack! Keep up the good work!
