lol if you want to do a dungeon style then do it don't care about what other people think and just do it. and when it comes time for a beta, they might complain but thats when you say "just shut up and play the hack" and if they don't want to they are missing out ;D
Lies! I was never here! Purple taste like crayons!

I know I already commented here, but don't worry about what everyone thinks. You'll never be able to please everyone with a single hack, and you'll go crazy is you try. If people don't like what you're doing, there's a whole other board of hacks for them to follow instead. Do what you like. Do what makes you stand out and really provide a unique experience. Why do the same thing everyone else is doing? Everyone else has done it!

And even if that's not what you end up doing, just make sure that you really enjoy what it is that you do decide on, instead of compromising because not everyone is willing to wait and try it before forming an opinion. That's the way hacks die.

I'd say that you should go for option C, because it's seems to be the most
exciting, unique of all options.

Don't worry if option C doesn't seem like the "Pokemon" type, 'cause
that's only gonna make your Hack MORE unique and special.

Here's the updated version of SRT's intro! (Well, part of it XD ) ^___^

(I am aware of the text bugs in the "true" intro - this is pretty much unfixable and is the result of building this game upon the old Jersey Quest file, which bears the scars of Rubikon/A-text abuse from back when I was still in high school and had no bloody idea what I was doing when I repointed text willy-nilly. I should have started with a clean Ruby ROM, but using Jersey Quest as a base saved I'm paying for it ' On the bright side, it used to be MUCH worse...)

After a good twenty-thirty hours of work, I finally have something to show for myself. Still have about 17 pages of script left to go through before the intro is fully complete, though...(the stuff in this video was equal to 8 pages of script, so...yeah ' ) Here, we get to see some of the changed story stuff. You no longer start out immediately as "Chosen one" of Raikou (that comes later) - you're just a very ordinary Pichu living a rather tough existence with your parents and your sister, Momo. Today is the day where you and Momo are finally allowed to come with the rest of the town to visit "Wise Elder" and the "Great Black One." It is a visit that will prompt a rash action, born of good intentions, that ultimately leads to the darkest despair...and the renewal of hope.

Dusk has fallen.
Day passes into night and a chapter is closed,
the end of a season, the end of one's innocence.
The scent of berries hangs heavy in the air,
a reminder, sticky-sweet along the tongue...

Hello, Pichu. Turn and face me...

I love proving people wrong too. Especially people who think others are wrong. She replaced the Trainer Sprite with that Pichu sprite, that is all. Basically, she inserted Pichu twice, once as a Pokemon, once as the trainer.
Not to continue the argument, but my past self does have a good point. The summery of the Party Pichu won't have the same sprite as the 'Hero Data' card.

Lol, I love the intro. Seriously, I'm just even more impressed, now that I've seen it in motion. Very best of luck to you, PPG, this is honestly just fantastic.

This one's called 'Red', and it's actually kinda Pokémon themed, so have a listen! Check out the links below for more stuff, if you like this!

I spent the past half hour reading the whole thread because I was so intrigued by the first post I wanted to see how the hack has developed. I've gotta say - I have never seen so much detail and effort put into the story of a hack. I absolutely love it! You have a real talent in that area and I'm very impressed. :D

I'm now so hooked on this game. The Intro looks fantastic and the mapping is very nice, especially considering that it is very hard to get a 'natural' look with the rigid and inflexible grid system. Either way I think it's been pulled off very well.

I really looking forward to updates 'n' stuff Good Luck with it!!

@Gira and Kip - Thank you so very much for your kind words! I appreciate every comment I receive - its stuff like this that keeps me going.

Anyway, this is just a quick mapping update:

It's the first part of the Overworld map! (Tiles by Pokemon-Diamond with additional tiles by yours truly; based on the HG/SS map tiles by Game Freak). It was an absolute pain to insert and to get the palettes just right; but I feel it's worth it in the end, as it looks even better than I thought it would! I am aware of the rather stupid error I made on the right side of the map, where I have two path areas so close together you can step across and "skip" the lowest pink block (what was I thinking? ' Foresight, I lacks it...), but I will fix this with either a script or some minor remapping, so no worries. Anyway, SRT's overworld is broken up into six segments, each with a variety of "towns" and dungeons for our hero to explore. Each two segments of the map envelops a "chapter," or a smaller story arc within the overreaching plot - as for the details on those story arcs, you'll just have to wait a little XD For a preview of the first four segments of the map (though Segment #4 is not quite complete), click the spoiler tab below


As you can see, my foresight improved as I progressed! XD And yes, it is explained in-game why you can't just go straight up instead of having to take the long way. XD

Part Two of the intro is up for your viewing pleasure

The jerkiness in the audio and the random blackouts are NOT in-game...they're a result of editing the video in such a way to sync the sound to the action as much as possible '

We see the overworld; a little bit of the first of the "mini dungeons" in the game; and characters talking...and talking...and talking ' And they're only gonna talk MORE in the next part of the intro...but we'll start getting into real gameplay soon, I promise! =D Just gotta do the world-building and get the plot ball rolling

This looks absolutely fantastic. Lol'd a bit at the Great Black One Maybe I was expecting some sort of god-like monster but it's a nice twist.

I love the whole map system you've got going there - I admit I was sceptical about it at first but you've pulled it off very well. The dungeon mapping is good too; I like how there's a variety of different trees rather than just the one in a row and the whole thing (minus the stairs ) looks about as natural as you can get with that grid system we all know and love. The custom music, again, fits the mood perfectly.

Nice one PPG - really looking forward to the next one! :D
