View Full Version : Chaos Black gains Chinese illegal awareness

[url-inline="showthread.php?t=38787"]This particular hack[/url-inline] has apparently gained the idiotic attention of some Chinese morons who've been looking around different forums to steal hacks and output them in China.

Go to Pokémon.com (http://pokemon.com), click Mailbag, and view the "International Edition!" mailbag. It's phenominal. @_@;

For the lazy ones:
To Pokémon USA: I am a student currently studying in China and I picked up a copy of Pokémon Chaos Black for Game Boy Advance SP. I have been playing it for a few hours and eventually got stuck. When I went to look for a walkthrough I realized that most people have never even heard of this game.

From Pokémon USA: A lot of people haven't heard about it because Pokémon Chaos Black is not an official licensed Pokémon game - it's an illegal knock-off.

The thought of our hacks being sold as betas in the black market over there. These retards are making money off our work!

... please tell me rijonAdventures is NOT on their market. I can't stand it. @_@;

Thats wrong people work hard on hacks and they just get taken and sold I wonder how many hacks are in the black market right now I heard it was on ebay a while back as well.

This is.. In a word. Disgraceful.

At least they could of made their own illegal knock off.

This is making me begin to have second thoughts about showcasing hacks (or at least public betas) on PC. x_x;

The fact that they're making profits from this is disgusting. I also hope that rijonAdventures isn't being sold. Hopefully they'll stop and focus on some other game but that's more than highly unlikely. ;|

Oh No! Oh No! Selling our Time, Work, sweat and Money? Thats disgraceful, but i suppose we cant stop it... I pressume that Chaos Black isn't the ONLY one.

Pokemon Chartreuse is also apparently being pirated and sold. People on the net are asking for help because of glitches/bugs.

If Solar White was sold, I'd get the cops on it.

Those ripping off our hard work!

I am sorry to say rijonAdventures would be exactly what they would be looking for :( It's a bloody magnificent game mate.

this is old news to me, being the creator of chaos black.


But the main problem for me is that everyone seems to think the alpha is the final version!


and they'll probably overlook the beta when i release that as a result

Pokemon Brown was for sale in china for a while too. I found a website and it was for sale, but the websites gone now. (and no it wasnt another pokemon brown, it had screenshots from the game and everything).

Sorry to hear that too, but at least more people will enjoy your creation!

July 1st, 2006, 08:11 PM

So sweetie, you'll get the cops to arrest the Chinese piraters for pirating your hack, despite the fact ROMs are illegal. IRONY! XD

Well, stearing away from the issue of legalty of ROM hacks...

I'll feel conflicted if Ice or IceBlue made it to my Asian people. (Okie, I'm Vietnamese, but close enough sweeties.) XD
I'll feel glad that more sweeties are enjoying my game, and feel extremely angry when I found out some Chinese guy is making money off my work.

Well sorry sweetie for your work getting exploited for money, but atleast more people can enjoy it.

Being sold for $57CAD. $57 for an alpha? :|

July 2nd, 2006, 09:58 AM
Lmao, I find it amazing that it's in stores all over the world. And why they picked just one random hack like chaos black, that is only in the alpha stages, is beyond me. Chaos Black is a good hack, but there are alot more that are further along, and could have sold better lol.

I dunno, if I saw my hack in a store I'd be like OMG and bust out laughing.

That said, I'm looking forward to the actual DS games.

The cops would laugh at you. I love making hacks, but they are illegal under international copyright law.
Equate it to a car jacker calling the police when the car he stole gets car jacked.

Also I believe that if you own the actual game you can have the rom and it is legal.

Depends what nation you're from. The same laws go for music ripping and create software and DVD backups.

The fnny thing is though, I originally heard of this game off P2P software. And that's how I eventually found the hacking section of this site.

Here's something else that has also been occuring in China.

It just happened, that my freinds bought some hacks which I find here as gameboy cassets!
They went to the shop and bought Chaos Black and Quartz. This is indeed illegal but not that ROM hacking is legal, one cant do anything for the creator isnt even credited!

Its not only china guys, it reached India day before yesterday, indeed its someone here for my freind bought quartz tooo!
We need to put something against Piracy in the hacks so they cant steel!
And the guys steeling may not even know they are not original!!! - Bye Bye Pirated cartridges

Um... I hate to correct a mod but ROM's arn't illegal if you own the game. When I realese my hack i'm gonna change the bit at the start so it says not for sale and release box art which will have not to be sold prited all over it, we have to do something to stop this!
EDIT: Just a throught but you can ask questions on ebay so why dont poeple with membership ask questions like THIS IS ILLEGAL AND YOU WILL GO TO JAIL IF YOU ARE FOUND WITH IT! YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE HERE : [LINK]

I'm sorry I haven't shown up in the board for a VERY LONG Time and I've finally saw what happened in the Chinese Pirates.

1] I hope the Chinese Pirates can make Super Demo World The Legend Continues (http://fusoya.panicus.org/lm/dw.html) for the Super NES. I've always want to play it.

2] What they do to Pokemon ROM hacks is VERY BAD. I don't know how they do it but let's hope it's not on the live action news. I had many DISCLAIMERS on my webpage and some of my ROM hacks as well. Man, I've felt sorry for all Pokemon ROM hackers in the community but we should all stop this madness as a team. This is our privacy on our whole lives.

"Pokemon Chaos Black, LATEST!"
"Pokemon Diamond"
"Pokemon Rocket Monsters
"Pokemon Jade"
"Pokemon Dice Adventures"

These games are on sale as illegal copies all over the street markets in China (I`ve been to china). Maybe these guys go to China, buy the games for a cheap price and sell them on eBay for, what, 30 bucks?

Well Serg, you should put your name behind every corner :p Highly doubt they will check the whole game.

Legal action should be taken against pirate's, its getting abit too far with the scams. I'm surprised the pirate's even know how to edit a rom.

@Yoshimaster - It's not their fault if they weren't aware the game was an unofficial game. And, why are you saying it's bad if they buy it, when the seller is much worse?

@Sweet Love - Don't want to ruin your family reunion, but I'm half viet :)

The only people who can put a stop to this is the Chinese government and more then likely they won't help.

I'm not meaning to be racist or misjudging anyone here, but the Chinese government are probaly the ring leaders behind this.

Why? Pirated games have been coming out of China for years now, and have they done anything about it? Correct me if I'm wrong, China isn't an isolated island like Australia - much harder to ship out the games right? I haven't done any research, I am writing this from the top of my head, forgive me for any wrong detail.

But I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Well, I live in that isolated country of Australia! And we sometimes(I can name a few) get games delayed usally around 6 mounths after the US (or a year after Japan! I can name heaps) So when I went to Malasia in July, I found Pokemon Quatz! I bought it imedialty, since I had no Idea of what a hack was (I ran out of get chaos black). Best $30 (Aud) I spent in my life, (I had some sort image that the person who made the game was getting the profits, sorry tehBaro!). But I now know what hacks are and am curently working on my own (Earthbrown, a pokemon game based in the 60's). But with out it, I would have never known what a hack was. And Sorry for wasting your time by reading this.

But with that sort of publisity, more people are getting into hacks, (But it should be the ones who made the games getting the profit, not some pireter (spelling?)

The sale of hacks is illegal. If the person who made them got profit, the might also get arrested, because you're selling something made from Nintendo's engine (am I right? I know it's illegal, but is this why?) It's dangerous having others sell your work anyway because online, no one knows who you are. ;)

Lucklily I don't hack Pokemon yet, so I should be ready to make one soon and prevent pirates from selling it.

Well, the reason i found this site is because of Chaos Black. I thought it was a real game until i saw the box wit a pic of Chaos from Sonic DX. When i saw that i literally laughed until i fell out of my chair. teh thing is that no matter what you do, pirating will always happen no matter what. it's just like crime anywhere; no matter where you move to, there will always be crime.

But that's not to say that you can try to lower crime rate.

now am i right or not?
