And I remember you too - I was always in awe of your CSS skills
Judging from your conversation with Glitch, there are only a few things that would require us to move the ROM back and forth (So long as no two people are working on the same part at the same time). I think that if we quickly establish a ROM base first we won't need to exchange over nine thousand ips files. This would be made up of the things that would drastically affect the game and take effort to reverse (e.g me changing the Pokedex) before we all set to work on our individual projects. Things like mapping, scripts and tiles can be easily sent to other member without the need of a continually changing ROM base. Eventually when we need to have a ROM with everything inserted onto it, one person can recieve any remaining uninserted maps/ scripts that others have made and insert them. This could also happen more regularly (every one or two towns) so that everyone is up to date enough to have a good basis to work from while also allowing new members to pitch in.
It would take a bit of time, but it will allow everyone to be busy rather than playing pass the parcle with a new ROM base every couple of days.
EDIT: Wow I rambled, but I'm not sure if my logic is entirely correct :/

hey thats smart!
im impressed, i think i might have remembered you from the first time i was here (this is my 4th time back haha)
when working on hack would we have to email the rom file back and forth as we all edit it?

To properly limit the Pokedex to 75 would require heavy ASM, but I believe that I can arrange the Pokedex in such a way that the 75 in-game Pokemon you want will take up the first 75 slots and therefore give no indication that it may be longer.

so your a full on scripter.
as for the poke dex, i wanted it reduced down to 75 pokemon, could you do that?
January 17th, 2011 8:41 PMDrFuji
I'd consider myself to be an advanced scripter while I know how to do a number things in terms of Pokedex hacking (Creating/ repointing new descriptions, changing the size comparison, icons/ sprites etc) I'm not sure how to classify myself.
If you need any proof, you can check out my hack which is currently up for HotM .

heres the copy pasta version:Quote:I have a new idea for a hack and was wondering if you wanted to help out.
its not a BIG hack, basically you travel to a small region and explore it. the region only have 4 towns, and 5 routes, the routes are longer and more graphically fancy
its not a game you have to play for 329382634hrs and spend the whole time leveling up your pokemon and catching them all. (the region only has 75 pokemon)
Its a game with smart concepts, an each HM has a difficult task you have to complete to obatian.
(unlike in HG/SS were you just walk out the gym and get a HM).
You start in the water city (since you live there) but you cant fight the gym leader.
You caný go north(strenght needed) east (cut needed) or south (surf) so you head west to the grass city, and you fight the leader and get the badge.
North of the grass city there is a haunted forest and a big puzzle. once you complete the puzzle you get the first HM, Cut. you then head north of the water city and to the flying city.
while there are less that 15 maps, but all of the them are very big.
most of the maps will be bigger that saffron city or viridian forest.

Hey there. I'm interested in helping with your hack, but I'd like to have a bit more information before I decide on anything. I can't do music stuff, so it would be the other two positions if I do choose to apply :)
