    Lol at your pm. Thanks for the link, I'll check it out. If all else fails, I'll continue to shamelessly abuse your offer of help .

    The second beta will probably cover another third or so of the full game; it'll be long by necessity. I'll probably end it just before the final legendary, just to tick people off.
    Not sure when it'll be done by, I'll just have to wait and see :\

    You being really happy with graphics means a heck of a lot. I'd love to see those, though don't let me steal anything you were planning to use in Infinity.
    HG/SS style would be great, actually. I really like the look of your Infinity map.
    On my end, I've decided to move up the Rocket/Legend choice, it'll be in the city just after the Beta's end. Today I'm going to start scripting the training process for both teams, as well as preparing a bunch of secondary events base on the team you choose.
    Your thoughts:
    1. Should I include the option to remain neutral, not joining either team? It would complicate things, but it would probably be more realistic.
    2. I think I'm going to leave a "redemption" (or condemnation) option open, so that the player can change sides at a point later in the game. Good or bad idea?
    Thanks yet again for everything.

    If I import the maps, then all the scripts will be messed up. But it's not hard, since I can still import tiles, palettes, and tilesets without messing up stuff.

    I'm not sure how developed the Pokemon hacking community was by the time Emerald was released, but maybe GameFreak put something in the code to corrupt the sound when hacking is attempted.

    Anyways, since my hack is part of a 4-part series, I've first made some modifications to a clean Ruby rom, such as changing the font. The hack will no longer be called ShadowAmethyst, it will now be called, "Pokemon Saga - Adventure". There will also be a sister hack named, "Pokemon Saga - Chronicles" which takes place in Hoenn. Once my GBA hacks are finished, there will be 2 more hacks, "Pokemon Saga 2 - Adventure" which takes place in Johto, and also "Pokemon Saga 2 - Chronicles" which takes place in Sinnoh. That's why I'm making changes to a Ruby rom and then copying it, because I want Adventure and Chronicles to feel similar, just like HG/SS feels very similar to Platinum.

    I'm currently mapping the player's house. Not much progress at all, though I'm gonna try and make better tiles.

    Just remove the gatehouse, the map connections are still there.

    Also I don't think unLZ is the only factor. I remember when I was adding a level script in the Viridian Pokemart (the one where he gives you Oak's parcel), I kept getting sound corruption. I don't know what I did to bypass it, but I wasted a good 30 minutes just trying to insert one stupid script without messing with the sound.

    That is...weird. I downloaded my own patch and applied it to a clean Emerald rom, and the gatehouse looks and functions just fine. But you can still access Viridian City, right? Also can you take a screenshot?

    I don't like the FR/LG graphics anymore. I don't know why, I used to think it looked good, but now I think they look way too cartoony.

    And yes, I have started.

    Emerald font, Emerald textbox. I still have to hack the text box to have wider edges, like Emerald. The reason why it's green instead of blue like in ShadowAmethyst is because if you read the first post carefully, ShadowAmethyst is part of a 4 part series. So I'm making all aesthetic changes to a Ruby rom before separating them. And I've decided that it won't be called ShadowAmethyst either. So far I've modified the font, the textbox, and trade evolutions.

    EDIT: Can you please try my incomplete beta? No one has commented on it at all, and I'm interested in hearing suggestions before I do more work on Ruby.

    Uh..dude. When I was working on Emerald, I made backups after almost every change. That's how glitchy it could be sometimes. It doesn't help that the HG/SS Kanto maps are A LOT bigger than the Hoenn maps.

    I've made the decision to switch to Ruby.

    If I expand the Rom to 32mb, then it will take forever to load on my DS. I've tried with FloraSky, a 32mb Emerald hack, and never got to play it handheld because I got impatient with the loading time. A 16mb GBA game only takes about 10 seconds.

    btw, have you tried my new patch?

    EDIT: Actually, I found out that the long loading time only happens once. However, I would have to blank my EZFlash's NOR data everytime I want to update the rom on it... You might have a good idea. Looks like I might be able to do it on Emerald after all.

    EDIT: nvm, it doesn't work with Emerald...

    Yesterday when I posted that last VM, I thought I was resuming. Later that day, I was playing ShadowAmethyst on my DS and noticed several sound-related problems. Just read the thread for more info.

    Just to let you know, progress has resumed on my hack, but for some reason I get a Database Error when I try to post an update >=-(.

    Yeah, well, Ho-Oh isn't available in Sienna (In normal gameplay, anyway.) so I needed to do something with Ho-Oh's puzzle. Coincidentally, at the same time I was looking for more mini-game ideas for the Poképlaza. And bam, you've got yourself Ho-Oh's Alph. XD;

    Yeah, those are sort of what I'm planning for the other two puzzles. But then again, Kabutops and Omastar could be a tad boring. D:

    Actually, it was posted on March 31st. Also, I've been and gone XD;. I was there from April 1st to April 8th! ^_^

    Yeah, it's everything to do with pteraerial, there's actually a rough outline video of it in my thread somewhere. It's on my youtube if you don't want to bother searching through it.

So, if you like electronic dancey music, check this link out:

I've had it as my usertitle for quite a while now, but.. well, I could do with using my blog a bit more often, haha.

That's my soundcloud. I've been playing music (piano) since I was about... five? Five. And for about four years now, I've been producing music electronically. I can play a bit of guitar/ukulele too, but...

I'm actually quite suckish at using my blog, but... I really don't care. I rarely have anything interesting to post but this is something I HAVE to write down somewhere, because it's just too weird.

So in the late 80s, my parents moved from Ireland to Canada. My siblings and I were born there, and we lived there til I finished Senior Kindergarten at age 5. We then moved back to Ireland, where we lived in the sorta suburbs. I went to school there for about two and a half years before...

Here I am with a slightly more controversial blog post. Definitely in comparison to my previous ones anyway, which have all pretty much been little notes about my life.

Anyway, with the death of Apple dude Steve Jobs a few weeks ago, and now with the recent passing of world-reknowned (have no idea if that's the correct way to say it) singer Whitney Housten at the age of 48, it's got me thinking; when it comes to celebrity deaths, there's something that really, really annoys me....

So, it's been a little while since I last posted in this little blog, and... well, I still don't really have that much interesting things to say, but oh well :P

So if it hasn't become clear by this stage, I'm a Scrubs fanatic. (How one could be anything but is totally beyond me). Most people who know me will also know that I'm quite into music in general. And so, when you cross these two fantastic things, you get...
This little gem of splendiforous wonder.
And here's what's...

(In case the first wasn't enough to make you notice, my title's will all start in "My", like Scrubs episodes).

So yeah, yesterday I met up with my buddy DrFuji, who came to Ireland all the way from Upside-downia :) We had a pretty awesome day, which consisted of much walking around, then sitting down, then walking around some more. It was odd to talk about the things we usually talk about, but in person :P

So a fair bit happened during the day. We got some food...
