July 24th, 2012 01:00 PMDaleH771Cheers dude!
I took a Firered ROM and emptied the outdoor tilesets completely. May do indoors, may not. I can barely sprite either so I'm sticking with the defaults, with a few sweet colour changes.
It;s coming along great though! I'm really thinking this hack through, I'm pretty chuffed so far!
July 19th, 2012 07:39 AMThe Prince of Sweet SorrowHey, man, nice screenies!
June 14th, 2012 05:45 AMDaleH771Sixth form? As in, where you go to do A levels? Haha. And exactly but yeah, in my spare time that I do get I just like to map basically, and then just attempt to script what I can in the hope people will like and play my hack but Ohhh, that must suck then!
You've already made some of the key elements of an amazing hack, just need to do what I do and try at it, I'm like you, a mapper with little experience at anything else trying to create a decent hack
And yeah, could be anything from £240-£600 a week, which would be nice! And nice training is over it should go up again I can't wait to be hosts, my current job gets me about £120 a week, really isn't enough, but that is only part time
June 14th, 2012 05:36 AMThe Prince of Sweet SorrowSixth form? Yeah, I know what having girlfriend means. ;D yeah man but prob is, I'm so lazy all I want it to sit down and draw/write stuff/map/chat all day.. though if I could get a job, I'd be happy to get paid. I live in Greece, you see, no job will ever be found easily here.
Yeah, thanks man. I hoped I could make an epic hack, a game of my own, but it seems like I've failed, and I realized that a long time ago.
Seriously?! You'll be getting that much? That's awesome man, stick to it! But what exactly will you be doing?
June 14th, 2012 05:26 AMDaleH771Man, I have just left sixth form too and have a girlfriend (now that's time consuming, not that I'm complaining!) - Try studying, working, hacking and spending loads of time with your girlfriend each week, that's work! Haha.
And that's a shame that it's not having any work done to it, I'd love to work on a hack with such well done tiles and good looking OWs so far.
And really? I'll have a look! And I have my first interview next Thursday for an Accountancy job, that's the career route I plan on going down. Some trainee jobs I've seen go up to £24,000 a year in my area, whilst training! Just hope I can be something
June 14th, 2012 05:19 AMThe Prince of Sweet SorrowOh, I see. I don't have any job, I admire how you hack and work. xD
O/ws need attendance, and other stuff as well. I don't want to do it anymore, anyway.
I think there is, check out the Toolbox. Might not be released yet, though.. and thanks, what are you planning on doing?
June 14th, 2012 05:11 AMDaleH771I am, today is one of my few days off from doing anything... Aside from work tonight, 5-10pm -.- haha.
And hmm, surely mapping and scripting is all there is left to it? Tiles, mapping and OWs look covered, title screen too probably...
And ahhh I see, my interest purely revolves around the hacking side of things. I just wish there was a tool like Advance Map for the DS generation games... But good luck for the Arts School etc!
June 14th, 2012 05:05 AMThe Prince of Sweet SorrowYou sound like a busy person.. xD
Yeah but I don't need just 'help' like I said before - it's much more than that..
That sounds completly reasonable, but I don't have motivation. I'm not only into hacking - I'm into Roleplaying and drawing (I'm going to give some exams next year to pass onto the Fine Arts school). For this phase of my life, anything I'd do in the hacking concept would be mapping/tile inserting.
Oh well, lol. It's just much easier to communicate.
June 14th, 2012 04:58 AMDaleH771Yeah, after exams my upcoming new job interviews I'll have a badger at it.
And well, you get people who are willing. It's hard to find someone committed, hence why I went solo although Giradalkia may be lending me a hand with some tiles. Little things like that are ok because they come to you, give you that little help you need and can leave you to it and I'm more than happy to credit them
What I think you should do...
- Learn basic scripting, e.g, simple talking messages, signs, items on the floor scripts, trainer battles scripts and flags, all I know really.
- Get putting those into your hack yourself, that's like 90%+ of the scripting.
- Get someone else to script the major events for you, the ones that require really long scripts.
That way they will only have to do a small amount of work for you and you can say you did most of the hack yourself. That's what I intend to do, just have 'guest hackers' almost to help with small things I cannot be bothered to learn to do :L
And I don't use MSN or anything like that anymore, maybas well stick to this or private messaging over here
June 14th, 2012 04:38 AMThe Prince of Sweet SorrowI see, that's quite the problem. They're alotta different, but imo XSE has more capabilities. Not like I've used it many times, lol
Meh. Who would want to lead such a project, made by someone else? If I wanted someone else to lead it, I'd choose somebody I trust and somebody who knows scripting well, before making sure they would really want to do it as bad as me. Which is nobody xD
It's no serious virus, really. Just an annoying pop up I'll be able to kick off some time. Sure, I understand your desire to map with different tilesets - I'm a mapper myself. xD Can't say no to a fellow hacker. Find me in [email protected], by the way.
June 14th, 2012 04:28 AMDaleH771Admittedly XSE involves a lot less messing around but I don't have the time right now to learn how it works all over again
You do not necessarily have to be the leader, just the founder, tile inserter and mapper? To be honest that involves the best jobs and best title someone else can do the lead work.
Well, I'd get those tiles backed up externally so if the virus messes the PC up atcleastcyou still have those but sweet, awesome man! But yes of course, I'm not going to post them about or anything, they just look like a fun way to pass the time and create some intense looking maps
June 14th, 2012 03:58 AMThe Prince of Sweet SorrowYeah I've heard of this XSE/Pokescript division of hackers. xD
No, I didn't spend 2 years to release it in the public, and as for a hacking team, I was never born a leader, to be honest..
Currently the PC that has the ROM has a virus and I'm trying to fix it, but if I ever get over it, I'll lend you the tiles. You can practice with them - the tileset was made exactly for mapping. But I don't want them running around the section, k?
June 14th, 2012 03:52 AMDaleH771Everyone uses this new program called XSE for scripting, I'm old school and still use a program called PokeScript from years back, haha.
Man there is no way you can let such an intense looking ROM base go to waste!? Have you considered finding a new hack team or releasing it as a ROM base?
Well your years of work looks like it as paid off. Any chance I could have a nosey around and play with the tiles and that on a ROM base? I won't steal or post anything to do with your tiles, I just think they look like the perfect Tileset, cant let it all go to waste because someone left dude?
June 14th, 2012 03:38 AMThe Prince of Sweet Sorrowthe thing is I don't even know how to script. I'm sure I would be able to learn fast, but lol it's just not worth it anymore.. I mean I have taken a massive turn into Pokemon - from wanting to create my own game to reliving previous games such as Crystal or Emerald or Platinum (remakes that are bound to appear). But from time to time I get inspirations for new maps as well.
I see, I see. It's great to see that kind of ambition in people, because I lost it long ago. xD
Oh yes, it wouldn't quite work out. Besides, I've dumped the project... help won't just be enough, trust me. Thanks for your kind comments though, I've worked hard on the tileset/finding and adjusting tiles to my style to fit in a single primary tileset. In fact, that's what I've been doing the past two years, ever since you left hacking.. lol, 0 actual in-game progress.
June 14th, 2012 03:30 AMDaleH771I'd have to say I'm quite the same, I'm not really one for scripting or title screen hacking and all that, I just love mapping and that's what I always end up doing well ahead of myself in contrast to scripting which is time consuming and borng.
I just wanted to create a hack that I could reach at least the Hacks Showcase with and maybe complete. I have so many ideas so it's likely I'll complete it.
It's a shame your friend left, I would offer to help but seeing as mapping is a passion we share and we don't enjoy much else then it wouldn't work out too well.
Regardless though, Aegis' graphics as a whole, just looks brilliant I can do basic scripting (As I'm sure you can), but that's all I can offer aside from mapping skills :L
