Ah, I see. The Araragi thing was when the game first came out and I forgot to edit it ever since then. The Joey script is a problem, I guess that's first on my bucket list. The Accumula Town one is just I haven't finished mapping everything in there yet (but I just got to Accumula Town in Black 2, so now I can fully map and script things out). Everything else is a simple fix, thanks for the help.
And thanks for the Pokecenter compliment, I got the tiles from DarkDragoon but it seems like the counter in front of Nurse joy is a bit big...
I just played the hack so far and it's really good, very buggy, but very good.
-I don't know if you prefer the japenese names but Juniper's name is Aragi in the hack.
-When you meet Joey, that whole script with battling the Plasma Grunt goes on and on, you don't battle him after the first time, but it just traps you there.
-When you and your rivals have that competetion to collect the most pokemon, if you stick with your first Pokemon without catching anything you still win.
-Mom isn't facing towards you and your rivals when you go down the stairs at your house but that is just a little nitpick.
-Cheren's mom's script won't start.
-The flower tiles on the first Route look like huge green blocks (but I think you said that in the thread already).
-There probably is more on the second route but I couldn't get there because of the thing I mentioned above.
-Some warps in Accumula Town are not correct.(i.e one leads to a pokemart, one leads to Giovanni's gym)
I love the way you set up the Pokecenter/Pokemart though, that was amazing.
That's gonna be a tough one, but I guess I'll have to do something like the Pokemon Tower in Lavender Town. Since I have no idea as to what I'd do without stairs to climb the tower in the first place. >.<
Well if you need any help, I can yell at you too.
Oh yeah, I had totally forgotten there was a thread. And now I can finally replace those overworlds, now it won't be weird when an old guy is acting like a young woman. >.>
True, don't worry about the bridges though, honestly if you can make them, that'd be what people would want. I don't know what you're going to do about Dragonspiral tower though, maybe you could just not do the stairs.
And thanks, I actually can picture my reflection yell at me. xD
I'm actually going to start my hack back up again, I have a story planned but I didn't think I can pull it off but I can and I will.
BTW, AimayB or somethinng like that posted on your thread with a Juniper overworld, she probably thinks you still quit, but to make things easier (I hope) you should ask her for the overworld and give her credit.
Honestly, I think it's just when you take a long break from hacking (like I did when I started playing Black 2) getting back into the groove is what makes it difficult. That, and everyone has their own social life that is hard to find time for to pump hours into modifying a ROM. Plus, the Unova games use a lot of advanced things that make it difficult for the GBA games to keep up with (ex: Dragonspiral Tower's stairs, many of the bridges and its use of the camera, and the 3-D cut scenes).
Heh, you sounded just like me. My only hacking skills were badly edited maps and creeping around the scripting threads to know how to do what. I think you'd do great as a hacker, and if you ever get discouraged, you can just look in a mirror and your reflection will yell at you.
I wasn't trying to change your mind I'm just saying that the thing about quitting for the details and not falling out of love with hacking. If you fell out of love with hacking that's a different story but quitting for the other reason just made me mad for a second. Glad I could halp though.
Dang, I should listen to my advice. I use to hack alot (well only basic mapping and inserting pokemon and had no skill in scripting) but I quit after trying to get motivation from other hacks but hacking just gone downhill so I lost motivation..ugh I'ma hypocrite. xD
Maybe I will decide on getting back to hacking.
Anyway, not the point, I'm happy your doing the hack still, it really was one of my favorites since you actually posted the thread.
Nah, I was just planning on getting some progress into the hack before getting back to you. I realize that while I won't be able to get everything exactly the same, it'd be such a shame to not finish what I started, and your slap of reality helped me realize it.
Recently I got Black 2 and ironically, instead of it motivating me to improve the game
and get to the nitty gritty details, it made me realize how outclassed the GBA games are when compared to the DS ones. I have lost all motivation to complete the game.
Really? Who really gives a sh!t about all of the nitty gritty details of the game. Did it stop LAZ when doing Liquid Crystal (Yes, it's a remake of Crystal but still..). The main focus for a demake and a remake is redoing the story onto a different format. GBA games are not that outclassed too. We've all learned alot more about GBA hacking than DS hacking, the only real thing different is graphics and more difficult codeing. Losing motivation for probably the best attempt at a demake and actual hack I have seen lately, is disappointing. I understand why you lost motivation, you think it's impossible for you to make this demake. It's not. Nothing is impossible.
Do what you want though, I'm not stopping you, but at least think it over before you want to give up.
