    Thanks a lot for the feedback Mateo. Trying to fit all four Pokemon and all four HUDs in the screen is something that I long deemed non-viable and beyond what I was willing to try. There's just a lot of things that would need to be changed and the final result is far from guaranteed to be optimal.

    I'm seriously considering to prompt the player after each attack (to press the A button), so that they have time to recognize what just happened and whenever they feel they got it, they can press A and go on to the next attack. Since they can press the A button very fast if they wanted, I don't think I would be adding too much forced delay.

    Anyway, I do hope that as you say it becomes more intuitive when you are playing it instead or watching it. That's what I personally think as well. Feel free to test it out if you wish to, you only need to play up to the rival battle in oak's lab, picking the charmander pokeball (it will start as a double battle). I haven't planned too many double battles for the hack (maybe a 1-in-10 ratio at most), so I hope it never becomes an annoyance for the player, but something intersting to look forward too.

    As for seeing the inactive Pokemon's HP and level, right now what I've implemented is that you can check the inactive enemy Pokemon's HUD by clicking the select button when you are selecting the target for an attack, while you can always check your own's inactive Pokemon's HP and level by checking it in the party menu. Do you think it would be better if there was a way to check the inactive pokemon's data apart from these (for example being able to swap pokemon right when you are in the fight/pkmn/item/run menu).

    Hi Mateo, I saw that you and random-man were discussing the double battle system I implemented in Pokemon Red in the Pokemon Red++ thread. The reason I uploaded the video was because I wanted some feedback, so it was interesting to read what you guys said there. Do you think it would look better if the player was prompted (to press the A button) between each attack so that he/she has more time to figure out what's going on? What about slightly increasing the delay between each attack or each sprite slide? All in all, did you find it too annoying or hard to follow that if you were to play a hack with that double battle system implemented you'd rather it wasn't implemented? Thanks in advance.

    Cool that you've already got it looking like good ol' XP! Your Firefox, though, could use some work. Get these addons:

    - Classic Theme Restorer
    - Firefox 3.6 Behaviors
    - Status-4-Evar
    - Firefox 2, the Theme, Reloaded

    And, you can make barfy Chrome-ripoff Firefox 40 look and work like Firefox is supposed to:


    Otherwise, it's good to know that Windows 10 is behaving for you. It appears that the Windows Star Trek Rule still stands.

    Yeah, the new Firefox has been annoying me lately, it's been rather slow and such. My PC has just been acting sluggish and annoying in general though tbh. I hate Windows 8 with a passion, but Windows 10 actually looks like it won't be too bad. It's a free upgrade, and with a free third party tool, I can make the start menu exactly like it was in 7. So what I've been doing this weekend is backing up my important stuff, and I'm gonna upgrade to 10 and try it out with Classic Shell. I figure it's worth a try anyway, and since I have things backed up already and have a Windows 7 install disk, worse case scenario is I end up with a clean re-insall of 7 and still end up with my PC running more smoothly lol.

    I do totally know where you're coming from though. I mean, I have 7 setup to look like XP, and I still use Office 2003, and mainly hack Gen 1 and 2, so I totally feel you there!
    Good to see that I'm not alone! All I care about is whether or not something is intuitive for me and whether or not it does its job. Firefox 40 might be "pretty," but it's in no way, shape, or form intuitive for me. Thank the GODS I have addons that make it look and function like good ol' Firefox 2.

    Windows 10 doesn't look too bad (at least, they seemed to learn from Windows 8's mistakes), but I'm going to hold off on the free upgrade. I'd rather they work out the kinks and bugs first, and I'm about due for a new laptop, anyways.

    LOL, I bet!

    I've been having some heated discussions (really, arguments) with a certain techno geek friend over Windows 8, Firefox 40, and new user interfaces, in general. He doesn't seem to understand why I would prefer the older versions of both, and why I can't "adapt to change."

    From yard work to school, that's kind of a bummer summer... Well, as long as you're happy, that's ok.

    Right now, I'm on my last vacation of the summer. Both the weather and the pool have been nice!

    Things have been going good! I've mainly been enjoying summer (hard not to after the horrific winters we've been getting in recent years), as well as doing some more posting around at my site and other places.

    Nice that you've returned to school. Hopefully, it's not costing you an arm and a leg to do it.

    Just checking in. How are things going?

    I feel bad for kind of ignoring the Red++ thread these past several weeks, but you seem to be getting along just fine without me. The new beta looks great, and I can't wait to check it out!

    It's probably due to lack of accuracy on VBA-M's part.
