[/css-div]
The Pokémon Gold, Silver & Crystal Versions were the popular second generation games from Nintendo, they inspired this hack. I've always wanted a G/S/C remake on the third generation of the Gameboy Advance console and with the Fire Red & Leaf Green graphic set.

With this, you will wake up one day and find your neighbour Professor Elm looking for you. Upon visiting him, you get a request to visit his acquaintance and your very own Pokémon as you have always dreamed of having. After visiting Mr. Pokémon, you decide to embark on your own adventure and a quest to complete the PokéDex that Professor Oak just gave.

Along the way, you'll face tough challenges, meet friends & foes, discover secrets, make legend and most importantly - have fun. Do you have what it takes?

Since I've used Pokémon Ruby Version as base, there's a lot of lackings. To overcome this and to make sure that certain features are possible, I've resort to ASM hacking - hacking of the game's original code, one way or another to accomplish what I intend to do. In the future, there will be more and more ASM hacks applied which will contribute to the success of this hack as a remake. My sincere thanks goes the people who've taught me the GBA assembly language.

Fire Red & Leaf Green Graphics
Although the base game is Ruby version, the graphics of it in plain words is that it sucks :P A lot of modification has been done to the tilesets, backgrounds, textboxes and so on. In the future there'll be even more :)

Time Events
It is known that Ruby version has a Real Time Clock (RTC) but it wasn't really used to the full extent, in this hack it will be misused - badly. There you have it: Day Night System[Morning, Day, Afternoon, Evening, and Night], Apricorn & Berry System, Seasons and other timed events will unfold.

Classic Tunes
The classics that you loved from G/S/C is back. There will also be different tunes for the different time periods, just be sure not to doze off to sleep..

Miscellaneous
Most of the other features of the G/S/C will be implemented if possible, this is all thanks to ASM work eg. Ruins of Alph puzzles, Phone call system, Clothes System, Money Savings, National Dex... There's just too many to name.

With all these features, all I can say is Ruby has been hacked extensively lol

This are mainly scripting and programming errors that tend to mess up game play, usually due to my carelessness and error. There are three sections: Bugs, Oddities, & Glitches.
To make sure that Pokémon Pure Gold is as clean as ever, I'd need all your help; so let me know if there's any weird things going on - Be sure not to use save states when playing. Oh and no cheating ;)

Bugs

Currently there's nothing.


Oddities

The following contributed to this hack in one way or another. Please note that this list is not in any particular order.

The G/S/C Platinum
A lot of graphics from them have been used either directly or as inspiration purposes.

HackMew & Mastermind_X
You two are one of the greatest hackers I've known in all time, I'm glad and honored to know you XD You both are what I'am now, I remember those countless hours of bothering you. My heart felt gratitude goes to you both :)

Matt & Cearn
Matt aka interdpth and Cearn helped increased my GBA knowledge, you have to say that ASM works hand in hand with the hardware so without the hardware it's null. Matt also gives me advice everytime I ask - hope it wasn't a bother :nervous: We don't call you old skool for nothing huh Matt?

Nitram & ~Teh Panda~
Gratitude goes to Nitram aka Martin :) for teaching me CSS long time ago and ~Teh Panda~ for reminding me about the CSS bbcode used in this thread. Thanks guys.

Aminex
Dude... Thanks for doing the music for my hack. I'll ask you to do more when you're active ^^

Zel
For some of the resources used in Shiny Gold. While working on the hack I had to refer to Shiny Gold, Gold Version, and so on. Shiny Gold sure is guidance and inspiration to fellow G/S/C remakers. I'd leave a personal message to Zel here, "Don't give up, you've come too far to give up on Shiny Gold :)"

ash2000
He's my beta tester. Speaking honestly here, beta testing can be boring and takes a lot of patience and loyalty - especially when you're torn between keeping the private beta to yourself or to someone who keeps bugging you and pleading and all. So... Thank you ash2000 ;)

The Tool Makers & Myself :P
Tools are always easier than HEX and those gibberish numbers. They are deserve a thumbs up and a round of applause XD

White screen problem
Help, I patched my ROM and when I run the game I get a white screen. This is most likely that your save type isn't compatible, goto Emulator=>Save Type=>128K. If not, then there can be chances that your ROM is corrupted or wasn't patched properly.

First post ftw =]

This looks pretty legit so far. I love RSE GSC remakes, but the only other one I've really seen even up to this date(besides my own confections LOL) was CrystalShards. This is esque to that, of course, which is legit in itself.

I'll be looking foward to a release. :)

Btw, some advice, the features are pretty nice in this, but I hope you don't let them and tools take over the hack. Gameplay should be the main focus. Just saying.

Also, would you mind showing us something on the clothing system? =]. Seems interesting...

Thanks :) What do you mean by let the tools take over? XD Yes, I agree - Gameplay comes first... Therefore I'm open to your suggestions and tell you what I think also.

Clothes system? :P Sure... I wasn't the first to do this though - On Ruby maybe yes :D I can't do the screens though, cause it doesn't look real XD

I mean, like, let the hack gain popularity only by its features and tools involved in it, and look past basing it around fresh gameplay too.

and why does it matter if it doesn't look real? lol. But really, if you're up to it besides that, it would be nice to see ;)

Okay... I hate to see people say I edited the palette in Photoshop or something like that.
http://i48.tinypic.com/nohk3o.png http://i45.tinypic.com/54akus.png
There it is. One's normal or default clothing and the second's changed after talking to that old lady. Currently, the clothes change will take effect after the map refreshes. But there's simple way to overcome it, simply copy the new clothes palette directly :P

Whatever floats your boat my friend ^^ Shiny Gold isn't completed yet and HGSS is still different in some ways.

Thanks :) That's my major goal, to make people playing the game think that it wasn't built on Ruby :D I guess I'll study how the map works on Fire Red and port it to Ruby. If its just a plain kanto map than it's easy but with labels and all... It becomes harder.

Yeah, that's do-able. But like I said early, it becomes way too easy if I just show the map and only the map XD

Well, all I have to say you probably already know. This hack looks amazing, especially because its based off of Ruby. Not too many people hack RSE nowadays.
Anyways, knowing you, you probably inserted a crapload of ASM stuff in there... Can't wait!

question, what are you using in your hack for daytime events

also on a critics note:

I think that the fact that you are using almost everything FR and LG is extremely well executed

also on a other note:

the intro does not look as the FR and LG one completely, which i like

that is all

P.S. i would totally put a banner in my sig if you had some
P.S.S. i like the fact that people who r da bomb at hacking only make G/S/C remakes
P.S.S.S. no one will stop making G/S/C remakes when HG/SS come out in engrish (oh yes i said ingrish)
P.S.S.S.S. i like puddin

Thanks ^^ Uh, what do you mean what I'm using? It'll be scripting of course? Oh and about the graphics, I really need to change the menu navigation arrows and some other stuff, as for the intro I'll have to find a way to recode it and use the bigger sprites just like Fire Red and Leaf Green. Thanks for your comments ^^

You have seasons and a day/night system, but no fan bars??? THIS IS MADNESS. Maybe I can make you one?

I'm a big fan of G/S/C but I find it painful to play because of the graphics, so I wish you luck and will wait for something downloadable. Are you planning to add anything new to the storyline?

December 3rd, 2009, 09:43 PM
Aha! The thread is up. I must say it looks quite good so far and I am loving all your unique features. It was no problem helping you out with CSS. I must say also that the clothing feature will be awesome. I remember seeing a vid by Sebbe where he had something like this. One thing I thought was odd was the size of Oak in the intro part. But this is probably a limitation or something in the intro routine? Everything else is wonderful so far and I am very glad to see it here on PC. Another great addon once you finish it will be the lit windows at night and seasons! Im so anxious to see how that turns out.

Best of luck :D

And what's so good about 3D?
A 3rd gen hack trying to look 4th gen entirely, doesn't work.
He's being original by not trying to put in 4th gen tiles/ 3D looking tiles.
If you wanted a 3D-esque hack, play a hack like Shiny Gold. Simple as!
I like the Tiles Makes the hack seem like an official game!

I have nothing against Shiny Gold I'm just saying, if all remakes were the same, would we even enjoy them as much as we do!

OMG, this is my ideal hack except it's on Ruby >:O. Well, if it's Fire Red style I like it. :D

This is probably the second best G/S/C remake I've ever seen. :3 Don't kill me, I liek Shiny Gold (:

I have some advice for you. Firstly, I wouldn't recomment using those custom tiles from Zel, soley on the fact that they don't match the other tiles and don't lookk nice in those palettes.

Secondly, your mapping. Try and use the other variety of Fire Red grass a little more. :3

And thirdly, Please change some of the D/N palettes, since they look a little weird to me.

Apart from that, good luck my friend!

Exactly :) Having 3D tiles on a game that's coded with 2D graphics will make it still 2D... No amount of tiles will change that, I think. I think having a Ruby game with all the Fire Red stuff is a challenge indeed.

Hey Zeikku, thanks for the offer. I'll send you PM's or messenger you later, there's this backsprite of yours that I'm gonna use ^^

Yeah, I understand. Thanks for your comments anyway. But I just don't agree with having those tiles will make the game more 3D... Okay, well maybe on the surface but not when you walk around with the overworld. If you wanna know more of my opinions VM me ;)

Thanks Pokepal17. Nah, it's okay, Shiny Gold's great.. I like it at first when Zel started off with Fire Red tiles but didn't after the change.
1) Couldn't agree more! :)
2) I'm disappointed with that too. Cause you know Ruby's major tileset isn't as large as Fire Red's and I've tried my best to fit in all the important tiles and couldn't get space for the grass. I've included them in Littleroot's tileset though - So some maps you'll find it and some you won't. I'll see what I can do about this in the future but if I can add more space for the tileset then everything will need to be remapped or something Oo
3) I think it's mostly the afternoon palette but yes I'll do something sooner or later.
Apart from that... Good day to you ^^

nice game looks awesome what prgram you use to make cover
What cover? :P I don't understand, could you be more specific?

Its the one you posted in the Resources thread a long time ago. I sort of recolored it to fit some of the other sprites I planned to use. I'll give you the link in a VM.

Well, again good luck then. :3

About the tileset size, the size data could be copied out of Fire Red couldn't it for the primary tileset?

Oh and I would adivse you to make a worldmap from D/P worldmap tiles because they looks a lot more nice, imo (nut it's your choice, I'm just giving my opinion) :3

And finally even though you made a tool for this I hope the door animations don't give you problems. :3

Good luck, I'm rooting for you^^

No, you can't copy the size... I tried back when I first started hacking and although it seem to work my ROM crashed :( Nah, the world map will remain having 3rd generation tiles. About the door animations, I overcame them with my new tool Door Manager, now the doors work the way I want.

But doesn't R/S/E have more tileset space?

According to AdvanceMap, R/S/E tilesets have space for 512 tiles, while FR/LG only has space for 384 tiles. How are you running out of tile space, if you're using FR/LG tiles, meaning you should have at least 100+ free tile space?

Fire Red uses 640 and R/S/E 512 in the major tileset. The tileset it self is small, don't believe me? Checkout unLZ in 1640 for Ruby and 1990 for Fire Red. So, Fire Red has more and Ruby less.

You should change the text to say GEAR instead of NAV. Of course it still would be for the nav, but it would be a nice little cosmetic change imo. =X

I get it now. You see, I thought you were talking about the amount of tiles you can have in your tileset in AdvanceMap (the 16x16 tiles), I didn't know you meant the 8x8 tiles that make up the 16x16 tiles.

If you're talking about the font then, most people don't notice this, but Emerald's font is slightly different than FireRed/LeafGreen's. The R/S font is huge, the FR/LG font is tiny, and the Emerald font is slightly bigger than FR/LG's.

Anyways, I have an idea: Why don't you use different trees for Johto, instead of the FR/LG trees? In G/S/C, Johto had "pointy" trees, while Kanto had round trees, so I think you should use the FR/LG trees for Kanto only, and use a different tree for Johto, to differentiate them a little more.

Actually, I wasn't talking about those pointy trees in the FR tileset (wonder why they're even there, are they even used at all?).

I meant make a custom tree that's pointy shaped, and then use the FireRed tree for Kanto only. Here's a Johto tree I made a long time ago:
http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/1675/treesr.png

Now I know that the tree on the left looks nothing like the Johto tree used in HG/SS, but that's because I made that tree way before HG/SS was announced, so I used the 8-bit G/S/C tree as a reference. If you were to use that tree, then use the left one for Johto only, and use the right one for Kanto only.

Plz release the demo soon!

1) I disagree, but whatever floats ya boat. (I'll just hack your hack and switch it to GSC Platinum's anyway, but it will be just for me. :p

2) RSE's tiles and people are as if your looking straight at them while the tiles and people are as if your a little above the ground, so it makes them look as if the have huge heads.
To make it simple RSE = looking straight and FRLG = Looking at slight elevation.

I like the idea because it'll please everyone, but I really don't think you should do it.

Why?

Because to me, if a G/S/C remake starts to use HGSS tiles, it seems that they are competing with HGSS. And the style of graphics is the same as D/P/Pt and yet I've heard "Remakes shouldn't use D/P tiles" So why should they use HGSS tiles?

Not to mention it'll be more work for you and deep down in the end it'll be the same game. Who cares about FR style tiles in a remake? WHy do people need HGSS in a remake which looks fine the way it is?

Anyway it's your choice. :3

No it doesn't. The hero may look the same but that's only until a replacement is found. Shiny Gold did use Fire Red tiles but then Zel inserted other kinds of tiles. So unless you are talking about Shiny Gold beta 2/3/3.5, this hack bears no resemblance to it. :3

For some reason every Ruby rom I tried didnt work, but after many downloading and deleting's, I finally got one to work (I can't find the AXVE one).

Anyways, I didn't go into much observation, so this is what I'll say:

Music - The Intro music (Route 30) was terrible. I can constantly hear a C note beeping on and on, and whoever composed that midi you have doesn't know how to correctly make chords in the correct key. The song is in the key of G, but the midi you have has notes that make wrong chords that don't correspond correctly. Also I kinda don't like how the New Bark music is in a different key than the original. And the Pokemon Center music is crap. It sounds like a 4-track 8-bit theme with GBA instruments.

Also for some reason when you start in your room, you can hear the PokeMart music.

Graphics - Amazing. When playing it, it's hard to believe that it's a hack of Ruby.

Glitches/Bugs - You said you don't have any, but there are. One of the houses in New Bark Town has a TV saying that Latios is flying around Hoenn.

Anyways I have a few questions: Since the PokeNav (Gear?) map shows Johto only, what are you going to do for Kanto areas?

Uh, I know Route 30/Intro theme has a problem, it'll be fixed later. The PokéCenter theme is already there, in built in Ruby - I don't think it sounds bad. New Bark is also good, I guess this is just how different people have different tastes XD I'm not saying they won't be changed, maybe in future versions.

The Mart music is in the room, because I changed it with Advance Intro Ed, surprisingly not all music can be used.

As for the TV, how the heck did you get the Latios message? I tried all I can but no Latios/Latias message. So, this must be due to cheats or dirty ROMs.

About the Latios message, for some reason I went back to the house and there was no message. I guess it's because earlier I had a WtW cheat on (lol I managed to make it to Fortree City).

Sorry, but from my point of view it seems a waste of time to copy an idea and made by Nintendo, it is assumed that the ROM hackers should demonstrate to Nintendo that the fans can do much more than their in-class job scheduling may but in terms of creativity do not have much to say.

The possibilities that can be done in the ROM Hacking are many as to copy an idea that others did, that's my opinion honestly do not know anyone says about uu

Could Basarte in the Anime or Manga perhaps ideas that nobody has the look.

Haha, I don't mean I want your ROM. It's just odd the patching wouldn't work then, because I have a ROM up to par with what you describe yours is... It's definately not because I didn't patch correctly, it's just not working, I guess. I'll try other ROMs around and see if that helps.
]I had the same problem, but I downloaded another copy of the ROM, which worked fine.
Yeah, try with other ROMs, things will eventually work out.

Sorry, but from my point of view it seems a waste of time to copy an idea and made by Nintendo, it is assumed that the ROM hackers should demonstrate to Nintendo that the fans can do much more than their in-class job scheduling may but in terms of creativity do not have much to say.

The possibilities that can be done in the ROM Hacking are many as to copy an idea that others did, that's my opinion honestly do not know anyone says about uu

Could Basarte in the Anime or Manga perhaps ideas that nobody has the look.

But anyway, it's your project ... Good luck!
According to my point of view - no time's waste at all and as you said it was made by Nintendo but not for the Advance Generation, and it could be counted as creativity when you turn a game like Ruby into something else. This is my honest opinion - there are all sorts of creativity ^^

Anyway that's your say and I appreciate it pal, good luck with your project as well :)

I like gold and silver remakes. Liquid Crstal and Shiny gold. Heart gold seems like it will be ok but... I wish someone would complete these hacks. I really don't think any remake could be as good as fan remakes.

So if you plan to do this please stick through till the end.

I love them as well, the GSC years were my favorite for the Pokemon games, with Silver being my favorite out of the three. I'm still waiting for someone to do a remake of silver, Gold and Crystal remakes are fine and I do enjoy them, but Silver will always be my favorite in the series.

I'd also like to see a complete version of fire red as well....

The ROM is not expanded and is a clean ROM, I use Lips IPS patcher.

You do realize that with the walk through walls code, you can make it all the way to Ilex Forest, don't you?

I think because Ruby has the real time system (which is used for the day/night system and the apricorn system) and FireRed doesn't.

Well, that's one of arguments in favor of Ruby. But now that custom RTC's has been made the one on Ruby sucks :P So, I'll find the time to remove it in the future and add my own with features such as Day Light Savings :D

Anyway, I guess the main reason why I used Ruby is because I liked it and I wanted it to be like Fire Red, a lot of you didn't know that when I joined the hacking scene all you see is Fire Red hacks. Making a Ruby like Fire Red is quite a challenge indeed ;)

Think of it this way, Ruby has:
*Eevee can evolve in to Espeon & Umbreon
*Golbat and Chansey can actually evolve (before fighting Elite 4)
*You can actually breed Pokemon (before fighting Elite 4)
*A much better PokeDex system (FR/LG is too cluttered)
*Lots of Free Space
*An actual Battle Tower (Frontier in Emerald :P)
*Mach Bike (the bike in FR/LG is basically the slow Acro Bike :/ )
*POKENAV!!!!!!!!!!!
*A LOT more map data, since most hacks don't really use Secret Bases
*More music for different Trainer Classes (for instance, Team Magma/Aqua Grunts have unique music, unlike Team Rocket in FR/LG)
*More music in general (Even MORE in Emerald)

What does FR/LG have? Well:
*Four World maps

Yep, that's pretty much the only advantage in choosing FR/LG over R/S/E. I still don't see why many people hack FireRed, hacking Ruby or Emerald seems more ideal to me.

Zodiac, is there any particular reason why you choose Ruby over Emerald? Because I'm assuming that the Battle Tower will be in this game, but the R/S Battle Tower only has Pokemon in the Hoenn Dex. If you choose Emerald, you can have an entire Battle Frontier, and Pokemon sprite animations in battle, and when you battle a Team Aqua/Magma Grunt, the team logo appears, which can be hacked into a Rocket logo to make it even more epic. I know it's too late to switch now, but I'm just wondering why Ruby was chosen over Emerald.

Mach Bike (the bike in FR/LG is basically the slow Acro Bike :/ )

Hey, don't be dissin' the Acro Bike! (Although without tricks, it really is lame, but it makes for easy Latias/os catching with them.)

Oh, and a lot of tools don't work for Emerald, but work for Ruby. And if you really tried, you could probubly put the Battle Frontier in Ruby.

The Ho-oh animation is a bit too fast, and a bit plain... Would it be possible to add some movement (instead of just alternating the sprites), and slow it down a little?
I'd also recommend you get a custom Ho-oh sprite, rather than using the in-game one. Maybe you could get one where the animation makes it look like it's flying?

Also, could you move the selection window in the bank system to the bottom right? When it's at the top middle, it looks like it's in the way...

I might be able to help with sprites, if I have some free time...

I agree but I think that it would look better in the bottom left so that it would be directly underneath the money box. It's really a personal preference but I think it would look neater if both boxes were on the same side.

And I also agree that the Ho-oh sprite's animation looks a little weird. You should try to make it a little smoother. But the fact that it is animated in the first place is very impressive. :)

January 5th, 2010, 04:54 PM
I have been talking to Zodiac and I am pretty sure he uses the sprite from in game, so if he were to change t the one in game would. Also I believe he is using the animation from the battle sequences. So yeah... Can't really make it different than the one it is without using another "sprite" which will be in game.

ZodiacDaGreat
January 5th, 2010, 07:53 PM
No, actually... That's the sprite from Emerald ^^ For all who haven't noticed and you know, the battle animation is meant for a fast movement. What I really need is a good Ho-0h sprite with perhaps more frames :P

Exactly.

People who are saying there are already remakes out there... Yes, there are loads, if you don't like remakes say it else where in a 'I don't like remakes' thread or something. HG/SS is also a remake, but official versions and they are superior because they are made on superior hardware. Stop whining in my thread about how you hate hack remakes or how good HG/SS is, if you don't like Pure Gold then don't waste time here go get yourselves HG/SS and play till the sky falls.

Just my opinion, I strongly suggest using some of that guy on Youtube's music, rather than using the music in your beta so far. I noticed that you used New Bark Town & Cianwood's music from LiquidCrystal, and to be honest those remixes aren't that great. You said in the first post that the G/S/C tunes will be present, so why not use music that's actually in the same key as the original. The New Bark Town music you're using is in the key of Bb, while the G/S/C New Bark Town music is in the key of D. If you want, I can change the key into D, but then you would have to re-loop and re-insert it.

Also I don't recommend using FR/LG's Johto Music on Five, Six, and Seven Islands, because none of those are in the same key as the original.

Honestly, being in a different key from the original isn't bad. Maybe if they had music other than beeping variations back then it would have been originally put in the remade-esque key. Either way, it's just opinion ig.

Well, IIRC, not very many people liked FR/LG's music, because they changed the key of over half the songs. But from what I've read, it appears that many people love HG/SS's music, because every single song is in the same key as the original (Except the Ecruteak, Cianwood, and Rocket Encounter themes).

So if you want nostalgic music, it's best to keep them in the same key as the originals.

It shouldn't sound off, chances are people are being picky. The music sounds great to me.

IMO the music isn't bad, it's in the correct key, only difference is that GBC used synth instruments, GBA uses up to 5 direct sound instruments and 3 synth. Key changes aren't bad, Nintendo changed keys for Heart Gold and Soul Silver completely. Because having 10+ instruments per song would obviously change the key...So people saying Nintendo never did that, are talking nonsense. Not to mention Heart Gold/ Soul Silver Music Sucks. I'm sure fellow remakers and the decent hackers will agree. The additional bits added to songs in HG/ SS and the bad instrument choice was a turn-off but the key was okay.

Make sure your instrument choice is decent and not like Heart Gold/ Soul Silvers.

Either way, I could Remix songs for you, Zodiac. You have my MSN anyways. I'll have proof of work. However, I'm so awesome that I'll doubt you'll need it. :)

You don't understand the concept of keys. HG/SS songs are in the same key as the original. The amount of instruments you have has absolutely nothing to do with what key a song is in.

Now really, I bet you can't even identify what key is what. The HG/SS songs are in the same key as G/S/C, and no amount of instruments can change that. And the music that clonex made is in a different key, his New Bark Town music is in Bb Major, while the G/S/C/HG/SS New Bark music is in D Major.

Because having 10+ instruments per song would obviously change the key...
That is the dumbest statement I have ever heard.

Considering I'm a musician. I'd watch it. One key doesn't make up a song, a song can start on one key and change, it's not consistent. Playing on one key, all the way through a song makes it predictable. Like your posts.

The songs in-game sound near enough the same. And who knows, maybe clone wanted to make it sound original. Do keys matter that much?! NO! They don't. Stop finding little pointless things that bug you personally, and making a big deal out of it.

Oh and Keep your panties on, when you're talking to me. Have some respect. Especially, when all I did was post my opinion.

You call yourself a musician, yet you actually think that the amount of instruments automatically changes the key of a song? O_o...

Now I respect people's opinions, but I don't respect the false facts you used to back up your opinion. By what you said, I'm assuming you think that you understand the concepts of music more than me, but seriously. You actually thought that the amount of instruments can change the key of a song despite the notes being the same.

One key doesn't make up a song, a song can start on one key and change, it's not consistent.

The fact that a song can change key in the middle has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that clonex's music are off-key in comparison to the original. It also has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that for some reason you thought the amount of instruments can change the key even though the dominant notes behind it are exactly the same.

(And the New Bark/Cianwood songs don't even change key, so you mentioning that is completely pointless)

I apologize for sounding rude, and I should have respected your opinion more. But the facts you used to back up your opinion were incorrect. Really, saying that adding more instruments to a song will automatically change the key is ridiculous. D Major is D Major and no amount of instruments can change that. The only way to change that is if the notes that were being played aren't part of the D Major scale, which is not the case.

Like you said that it's your opinion, it is mine too. It's my opinion that I don't like the new keys that FR/LG used, and there's nothing you can do about that. IMO, the keys do matter, because changing a key is changing the entire feel of the song. Sometimes the feel might not be that different, and it may even sound better or worse, but since Zodiac said the "classic tunes from G/S/C are back", then changing the key of the songs isn't "classic".

I pointed out something simple and you flipped out and for that, you're probably the dumbest person I have heard.
You didn't point out something simple. In fact, what you pointed out wasn't even correct.

Considering I'm a musician, and that can read standard musical notation, jazz musical notation, have perfect pitch, know how to play Guitar, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, and band-geek, can instantly identify what key a song is in, and when/if it changes, memorized all 12 major and minor scales. I'd watch it.

My opinion was, I think if Zodiac is going for a nostalgic feel, he shouldn't use clonex's music. Now this whole argument was pretty pointless, because it's just over a song, but my opinion is still the same.

Pretty true. But just wanted to correct you and tell you that GBA actually has 4 synth instruments, synth 1, synth 2, the wav channel and the noise channel.

Also, watch what you guys call "remixes" around here. A remix is NOT the exact same song with changed instruments and an added drum beat. That's an arrangement. Now if you add instruments that weren't in the original and maybe change up the melody a bit, it can be considered a remix.

So if you take the exact same song and put it in GBA instruments, it is not a remix, it's an arrangement.

My opinion on key changes is, use or don't use them, it really doesn't matter. Both the official remakes of Red and Blue and the official remakes of Gold and Silver used them.

I don't care about originality much, making a remake means no originality remember - 'remake'. What you'll see different from other remakes is mostly the ASM and features which I'll try to bring on the GBA.

Being a remake means well a remake so it should be same lol Most of the tiles such as the buildings are custom made but besides that no. No 3D looks and all, 3D isn't meant for the GBA with its hardware capabilities - the best you'll get is from Mode 7 but no.

Most hacks here aren't completed if you take a look around properly. Beta - it's a test version of the hack with partial progress. If you want to find a finished hack, search for the thread which conatins records of all the finished hacks. And it not being completed doesn't make it bad quality either, so I see no reason for it not to be in a poll.

Fixed. After all, despite this game being a remake of a GBC game.. It really has nothing to do with the GBC system.
But I really doubt it's as easy as comparing the two. And.. You probably shouldn't try to rally everyone in his own thread. It's... Not very subtle.

For some reason it doesn't work on the VBA for me. You should try the No$GBA. Which can be found here (http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/gba/nocashgba.html).

Bringing to all, 1 new screen - I've decided to use Omega's well tiles for Slowpoke Well - thanks to Thrace for pointing me to it.

Go read the FAQ. It tells you how ^^ And Obviously, uploading a ROM is against the rules.

The well looks nice.
It would be cool if when you warped down it, you'd have the warp style of falling through a hole. :3

I've got a good set of tiles for the Sprout Tower exterior. They're not mine, I got them from PHO, but I think.. Yeah, credit Alistair and PHO, I'm pretty sure. I'll post later with them- I'd link, but I think PHO did a cleanup or something, and now everything's gone. So yeah, later.

Judging by the currently inserted tiles, he has a sheet with some Sprout Tower tiles in Fire Red style. The tiles you're talking about are not Fire Red style, so they will probably not be used. :3

EDIT: I see he doesn't. Kawai, I'll send you one in Fire Red style on MSN.

Okay. Right now I am really confused. This is the forum for finished, or pretty closed to finished, hacks. I get to Cherrygrove and that's it. I can't find anything besides the Alpha. And, I'm obviously crazy because if that's all you had, you wouldn't have won HotM (Congrats, btw) But maybe I'm totally wrong and there is just the alpha. So if someone could just point me in the right direction, that'd be cool (:

Uh, hi, I'd hate to say it, but my computer won't patch the rom! I've downloaded 3 patchers and 3 Pokemon Ruby roms, and then I would try patching them, the program says the patching is complete but when I start it with NO$GBA it still shows the Ruby start screen!

Can you help, please? I'd love to play another high-quality Gold remake. My OS is a Windows Vista x86.

If you would've played on to check and see whether the game is hacked then you'll know whether or not the patch worked, the titlescreen isn't there in the Alpha yet, after all I made it after the Alpha's released :(

There is a bug.
At Cherrygrove City, there will be a guy who offers you a tour of the city. If you agree, he will lead you into the sea, and talk about blah blah blah and then walks off, leaving you trapped in the sea. The only way to get out of the sea is to fight wild Pokemon there until your Pokemon faints.

Well, basically there wasn't :P Only happened because of the extra event I placed there while my previous events on that map had wrong 'Person Number' values hence causing mayhem. I've fixed that already, so since I had to put the extra event for the Alpha only, I don't consider it as a bug.

Yo zodiac, i know its hard for you to keep information to urself about this hack and that alot of people are annoying you for a beta and stuff but i think that you should release a beta when u feel the time is right. you will feel more pleased with urself and the people at this community will thank you for making such a good game for us to enjoy. We all crave for some pokemon fun!

Hey, thanks. I also want to do the same since we are all on a tight schedule aye? Anyway, I got some progress on my Mobile system so I'm gonna shed some light and how it works.

Basically, G/S/C has 27 trainers that will call you - alot, besides Mom, Prof. Elm and Bill. Pure Gold may have more ;) So, here are your 27 trainers which I copied from G/S/C platinum's site since they did the research so credits to them ^^
Youngster Joey (Route 30)
Bug Catcher Wade (Route 31)
Picnicker Liz (Route 32)
Fisher Ralph (Route 32): Informs you of Qwilfish in the area.
Hiker Anthony (Route 33): Informs you of Dunsparce in the area.
Pikcnicker Gina (Route 34)
Camper Todd (Route 34)
Juggler Irwin (Route 35)
Bug Catcher Arnie (Route 35): Informs you of Yanma in the area.
Pokefan Beverley (National Park)
Schoolboy Jack (National Park)
Schoolboy Alan (Route 36)
Lass Dana (Route 38)
Schoolboy Chad (Route 38): Informs you of Snubbull in the area.
Pokefan Derek (Route 39)
Sailor Huey (Olivine City)
Fisher Chris (Route 42)
Fisher Wilton (Route 44): Informs you of Remoraid in the area.
Bird Keeper Vance (Route 44)
Hiker Parry (Route 45): Informs you of Marrill in the area.
Blackbelt Kenji (Route 45)
Picknicker Erin (Route 46)
Cooltrainer Reena (Route 26)
Bird Keeper Jose (Route 26)
Cooltrainer Gaven (Route 27)
Cooltrainer Beth (Route 27)
So, to have them all work. I will have a table for Phone Calls using this format:
[Index of Trainer][Pointer to Trainer Name][Pointer to Trainer's Script]

Elsewhere I will have a counter that does some magic and then generates a random number, which will be use to call a certain trainer from the table and execute it's script. The script itself will have the conditions and if they are met then you get your call. Thoughts?
