So, downloaded Beta 2 today. I plan on taking it a bit slow - not completing it in one sitting, I mean. I applied it to the same ROM as the original Beta, played away, got as far as Vermilion (accepting the Egg along the way). I was delighted to catch a Magby, because Flame Body. Decided I'd hatch the egg because I could abuse VBA's speed-function.
Then, er, this happened.
The Eevee can be used and is now level 4. I will name him Scrambled.
Prooooooooobably gonna restart on a fresh ROM - I'm using the correct dump, but something clearly went wrong my end. :P
Just so you know, Beta 2 only goes up to Saffron City, which was the original planned length for Beta 1. So it's not like the whole game is complete or anything, but you can get seven Badges in the current release (yes, I said seven, not six. Sabrina is the 7th Gym Leader of DarkViolet).
Hey, I'm just wondering, is my hack eligible to be in the Hacks Showcase yet? Since there's now a playable Beta with 3 Gyms. I've been wanting more feedback (I love reading and responding to feedback), and I think having it in the Showcase would help a bit more
Hey giradialkia, as you've told me before, if there's any music help, I can ask you.
Would you like the honor of composing Giovanni's battle theme for DarkViolet? Also, my hack has the 5-DirectSound limit removed (I can now have up to 12 DirectSound samples playing at once), so you don't have to worry about the instrumentation.
EDIT: Also, I forgot to mention, Giovanni will have 2 battle themes in DarkViolet. In DarkViolet, there will be 4 total battles with him, the final of which will take place in Cerulean Cave. The music for the final battle with him should be a more "epic" or "beefed-up" version of his regular battle theme (kind of how in Pokemon Black/White, N's final battle theme is a "beefed-up" version of his regular battle theme). If you want, you can just compose one theme, and I'll do a "beefed-up" rendition of it.
EDIT(again): Also, if you agree to compose his battle theme, do NOT make it a remix of the Team Rocket Grunt battle theme. Remember, Archie & Maxie's battle theme sounded nothing like the Team Magma/Aqua Grunt music, Cyrus's battle theme sounded nothing like the Team Galactic battle music, and Ghetsis's battle theme sounded nothing like the Team Plasma battle music, so I'm asking that if you decide on doing Giovanni's battle theme, it should sound nothing like the Team Rocket battle theme.
Remember, you don't have to do any of this if you don't want to
