    Yes, I do mean the RSE Contests. Basically, the aim at first would be to add Contest Types and effects and the Poké Block and Berry mechanics, among other things.

    One other thing tonight: how do you program contests? Because I'm going to need to for a side project of mine eventually but was also thinking of incorporating it as a mechanic in TCNS.

    I see. Anyway, is there any way for the ball to remain onscreen for zero shakes when a capture fails miserably (which since Gen II would merit the comment "Oh no! The Pokémon broke free!")?

    Oh, have you finally been able to cleanly give the battling Pokémon EXP points after a catch as well as after a victory?

    I think it's that I forgot to add animation calls in the animations.asm file in the data folder. I just now went back and put the calls in, and the animations started working again.

    Well, she said it was OK, but anyway, I just encountered a glitch as I play through the nightly build as I compile it. When I battle my rival, I noticed that instead of the poofing animation, I see a Poké Ball being thrown at my rival's Pokémon when I summon my own. Any idea what causes this?

    Haha, yeah, I stopped by his profile one day and saw some rather interesting stuff, don't think I saw that one in particular though, lmao. I know the thread on Reddit where he declared that he was quitting was full of similar things. Adventures fans will do anything to get their fix, won't they?
    This one sentence especially made me howl: "This hack will surely be an Hit For Life. A Hack that Lives until next Generations of Teenagers." Adventures fans really ARE a just bunch of whiny emo teens!

    I did some Googling and found Aethestode's Reddit thread. His extremely whiny goodbye post is similarly hilarious:

    In recent years, hacking this game has not been fun anymore. I have people wishing that I would die on PM and people harassing me through Youtube, Email and Pokemon Community. The last straw was a person insulting me and the Pokemon Community Mod punishing me for defending myself. Cbf.
    Edit: I just honestly can't be psyduck anymore. I work and work tirelessly on a project adding things players want. A guy came in and insult me, call me a tyrant and say I don't listen to people. As a person who went to the hospital twice and still tried his best to work on the hack would obvious get upset and defend himself by saying how he's not a tyrant. The mod then came and deleted my comment and said I'm being and disrespectful because I used the word "I don't want to muk out crappy quality work"
    Obviously, I angrily messaged the mod asking how on earth does my comment considered rude and disrespectful while the other guy's one is completely fine and left intact. I even explained to him that the word "muk" wasn't even used as an insult at all. That mod simply claimed "the other guy was just joking and that the higher up gave him the power to judge as he please". So psyduck it.
    Edit 2: No, the guy who insulted me have his original post left intact. According to Spherical Ice, "he (Spherical Ice)" sees it as a joke and funny so it doesn't warrant a delete. Go figured.
    The hilarious thing is that when I appealed one of the mod even claimed that the guy's insulting comment could have warranted a deletion. However, because I'm already banned, he's not going to do anything.
    Edit 3: I honestly don't want to work on it. Hacking the game hasn't been fun for a while but I was willing to push on. This whole incident just left a sour taste in my mouth. Looking at the hack would just make me remember the negative stigma.
    Fun fact: I remember there was a time (few times actually) in Beta 11 where Spherical Ice sent me a message telling me to remove a certain content from the game because it upsets him. I tried arguing with him and say no, I won't remove it. However, he threatened to delete my hack/or ban me (I don't remember which one), so I simply obeyed and deleted the content.
    Final Edit: Anyway, I'm done. Please don't send me email asking me to change my mind anymore. If ever in the far far future I want to continue the hack then I'll definitely let people know.

    So Bobnbill posted about me creating a second account. Interesting that he posted me arguing with the mod (the part that paints me in the negative light), but completely neglect to state the reasons on why I've created the second account (which I CLEARLY wrote and him acknowledging the post himself). Anyway, the reason why I've created the second account was to put one final note on my Pokemon Adventure Red Chapter thread (since I couldn't do so in the first one). I didn't want to wait 2 weeks to post it since the community has already such a negative memories for me (partly due to the mods). Going there just brings so much bad memories. I've even requested for the mod to help me write a final note on my thread, but they simply ignored my post. Therefore, I find it funny that "Bobnbill" chose to not mention the reason why I created the second account or the mentioning of me asking the mod to put final note on my thread for me. I guess they're scrambling to make me the bad guy.
    The final note that I would have written would've been something like this:
    "Thank you for all your supports in the past 3 years. I first started as a diehard Pokemon fan who got interested in hacking due to Pokemon Shinygold and Pokemon Naranja. My hack first started out as very simple and amateurish. I would have never imagined it to get so much attention. I've definitely never imagined that it'll get in Hack of the Year rounds. All this was thanks for all you loyal supporters. I had some great and fun times making the hack and seeing people enjoy it definitely made it worthwhile. I don't get care about awards or money. People who had followed me from day 1 knows that from the very beginning that I stated that I don't care about the Hack of the Year bs at all. Anyway, unfortunately, I think it is time for me to end the hack. I know I've promised so many contents and I do feel bad for not delivering it. However, I just can't take it anymore. Aside from my declining health and busy schedule, recently my hacks been garnering a lot of trolls. I have people attacking me on Youtube. I have people sending me message praying that my family and I would die. I have people making fun and gleeing at every turmoil in my life (e.g. losing my dear friend, me going to the hospital twice, my health declining dramatically, etc). I also have people stressing me to hurry the hack and then attacking me when I postponed it. The constant attacks left me so afraid of reading my emails regarding the game or reading my own PM (that's why I tell people not to send me PM). People sees me as a person who loses my temper very easily. However, if you go through the amount of crap I have to go through, you'll probably lose your mind as well. I've tried ignored so many things, but there's a limit on how much a person can take. Anyway, even with all this, I've tried to push through, but the incident with the mods is definitely the last straw. Anyway, thank you for your support in the last 3 years. Good bye"

    Looks like Tara Gilesbie has a match!

    I probably will try HGSS at some point. But for now, I am still planning to move on to Gen 3. It's a lot better documented now than back in the day, and to be honest, I've always liked the look of FireRed style graphics anyway, and you can't really do that in a HGSS hack. But I will look into it at some point. I've actually already got some sort of map editor downloaded, I just haven't played around with it enough to figure it out yet.

    Well, Gen 3's far more doable right now... Which is sadly why Gen 3 hacking has become associated with crappy fangames made by emo teens with too much time on their hands. FireRed has become easy as dirt to hack.

    You're definitely in the minority for loving vanilla FireRed tiles. Most hacks I see try to use Gen 4/5 devamps, which often don't turn out well.

    Yeah, you're exactly right. While it made sense from a story perspective, it made the second half of the game feel rather pointless. I'm hoping the rematches with the E4 come across as well as I want them to (both in Christmas and Red++).

    I think they will. Gym Leader/E4 rematches are something that should've been in the games right from the start.

    I think I've got it figured out! I think it might be that I typed out the wrong punctuation... yep, that's it. That's what was wrong.

    Well, anyway, Cygwin's yelling at me for a set of graphics required for the EXP bar:

    make: *** No rule to make target 'gfx/exp_bar.h8/2bpp', needed by 'main_red.o'. Stop.
    Any idea as to what causes that error? Because this is the first day of compiling I've come across something like this.

    I haven't actually published the nightly build, yet. That shall come two days from now. I was just making sure I didn't ask her about it without first knowing whether or not she made the original sprite, is all (the concern, of course, being the off-chance that someone else might have made that sprite and I ended up asking the wrong person about it, which would be embarrassing at best in my book)--in short, crossing my T's and dotting my I's every step of the way.

    I ended up going with the original Gen 2 OW sprites, plus the custom Gen 2 Picnicker-style Misty OW sprite (which is a cross between the Misty OW sprite in your hack and the Gen 2 Picnicker OW sprite--would I need to ask Betty Newbie about that?) and an original Blaine ow sprite, along with the Gen 1 Erika and Giovanni OW sprites, at this stage.

    BTW I'm going to edit the Misty OW sprite so she's wearing the Gen II Picnicker uniform like in her battle sprite, which as mentioned earlier I had edited from her RGB battle sprite.

    Another thing I'm thinking of including in future nightly builds is custom OW sprites for the Gym Leaders, now that I know precisely how you free up space in your hack. Question: who did the Gym Leader OW sprites for your hack, that I may credit them?

    That's okay. RL always comes first.

    As we speak, I'm working on the next nightly build (due for release on Sunday), correcting bugs I had earlier spotted and adding stuff I had earlier forgotten to add, and also adding new features as I find out about them.

    Oh, how do you do that Exp. Bar thing? Because I was thinking about doing it for this or a future nightly build.
