Damn, I cannot beat the first gym leader, you made her so uber hard... (for me at least. XD

But, it's still a fun game, and I really don't care losing, the good thing is, I'll eventually win, since I'm at least beating her Yanma. ;o
To me, Quinn is uber easy. I have Geodudes and stuff in my team, ya know. And I really, or to say, extremely care if I lose or not, 'cause it weakens my personality of being a strong PKMN Trainer.

i enjoyed the beta, the maps felt original and the little things made sense, like getting a town map after taking a tour of gordian tour

New update (kinda).

I've been working on the new areas for beta 2 and they've been going good so far. I would post some screenshots but my rom is on my other computer. Now I've been working on some other things too lately... mostly on the things with the hero. I've made his backsprite but I have no clue which to use. I'd like some opinions from you guys.
Spoiler:

Top one has long seelves and the bottom has short seelves.
I personally prefer the one with short-sleeves. It could just be the fact that I don't own many long-sleeve shirts (it doesn't get very cold where I live) but I think he looks better with short-sleeves. I'm not a spriter so I couldn't tell you which one is actually sprited better but aesthetically, the bottom one is more appealing.

I'd say use the longer sleeves. Simply because it compliments on the name of the game and the temperature there, and it also adds originality to the original Pokémon games. BUT, the sprite needs to improved, because his arms don't look thick enough to have long sleeves.

I just started playing this and I have to say this is probably my favorite hack at the moment. The maps and blend of tiles really make it fun to play through. Also, about the backsprite I prefer the short sleeve to the long sleeve one. never really liked long sleeve shirts. Hope to see this hack progress even more. Good Luck!

I like the top one with long sleeves more. In Azure City Trainer School there is an invisible object and when I talk to it the game freezes. It's the table below the Youngster.

I like the above backsprite with long sleeves more, Since there is a winter area in the game.

Recently, I've been working on polishing things up in the hack. I've been redesigning a few old maps and I'm planning on adding a couple of new events in some of the earlier areas to make things more interesting. Scarlet Town has gotten a complete redesign. I don't want to reveal any of its new mapping until you guys play in Beta 2. I also made new Trainer sprites as well. Jay and Leon has gotten a redesign and I've (finally) made one for the hero.

Spoiler:


All of these will be in Beta 2.

All of these are nicely sprited.
Especially for the Hero and Leon's Sprites!

This looks very original. I'm really looking forward for the next beta!

Honestly, I think that this is very well thought out and it's really a fun game to play. I wanna see what happens next!

I wasn't originally going to add new battle backgrounds but I thought it would be a nice touch. So after a couple of hours of trial and error I managed to insert new BGs.



Very tedious but worth it I guess. Look forward to these in Beta 2.

Not sure whether you know this, but after you leave the Lab and enter it, Prof. Alder says one of Oak's phrases.

You never cease to amaze me, Frostbite. I think I admire you most for your well-roundedness; you excel in all major areas of hacking. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed playing Beta 1 and how much I'm looking forward to the release of the second beta. You should know that this hack provides a lot of inspiration for me. Keep up the excellent work!

Very nice! Yes, it does add a nice touch. I love how you're mixing D/P/Pt stuff with the game, it makes every smoother. Good luck, Frostbite! :)

I think he means it was tedious work to insert it, not the outcome. :P

Well, it is the engine. :P

Nice new updates Frostbite, one problem. In the first screen, you've misspelled 'tough' as 'though'. Good luck on beta 2! :D

EDIT: Lol you fixed it now. (:

What is the city in the first picture with the rival? I like the Tundra Warehouse mapping, and the Team Tundra Grunt sprites.
