another hack from DoMoreAwesome Games
We've been here before, haven't we?
Once again, you're put back into the shoes of either Gold or Kris, and sent on your way across the Johto region. With the most accurate scripts, text, features, and everything else compared to other remakes, you can nostalgically relive your past GBC memories and experiences in full-on GBA style on your way to becoming a Pokémon master.
What you need to patch this to
Based off of Pokémon
Why people want to play this and not
some other remake
Complete recreation of almost everything imaginable; sprites, sound, maps, events, and text all are almost perfect copies of their GBC counterparts, only upgraded
May be based off of Emerald, but most things are taken from FireRed, including sprites, tiles, battle graphics, font, animations, ...
Day/Night system; remade entirely from scratch and now supports light-up windows!
More ASM hacks than I can count; even little things like Mom on the Pokégear have been hacked to make them Crystal-accurate
Scripts are made to the best of my ability; no more exclamation mark without the sound!
No sound glitches; this hack uses the right free space, and uses the built-in FR voicegroups
Get people to play
Screenshots in motion
How far can you go?
Almost everything in Johto and some parts of Kanto
Finishing the Kanto quest
Holy crap, we won something?
What people don't want
When flying to the Lake of Rage after defeating the Red Gyarados but before talking to Lance, the animation messes up a bit, making you appear under Lance for a split second.
Who helped, and with what
Project Platinum (dead remake project) - Some tiles, sprites, and music
MrAPT1 - Music, more music, even more music, and sprites
Jambo51 - His awesome music hacks
Clonex25 and Magnius - GSC music remixes; also, voicegroup and looping documents
Jilly Shears - Even more music! CrystalDust has a lot of music.
Linkandzelda - Support
blase005 - Graphics galore, including the intro and title screen
shiny quagsire - That amazeballs intro he made
If I forgot anything/anyone, please post and I will definitely fix it. But then again, if I missed someone, they're probably in the in-game credits anyways.
