INTRODUCTION
The Lunavi Region: A region full of exotic monsters known as Pokémon. Humankind plays with them, battles with them against others and they help each other. There has always been a balance between Pokémon and humans. The creatures were a major part of everyday live. Tournaments were held for the best “Pokémon Trainers”. There were little serious issues in the world, aside from evil organizations and bad willing people wanting to use Pokémon to accomplish their goals. The world has been terrorized by the Pokémon-stealing gang Team Rocket, the continents have almost been changed by Team Magma and Team Aqua, a whole new world would have been created if Team Galactic had achieved their goals, an evil man would have dictated the world if his plan had succeeded… All these people have been stopped. Stopped, by a young, talented boy or girl with a passion for Pokémon. Now is the time for such a person to rise. Again.

Hi there! My name is P-Sign (AKA Pharetra) and I'm the lead developer of this fangame. Over the past few years I have been actively working on this project, thanks to your great support. It all started back in 2010, when I stopped ROM-hacking and learned about RPG Maker XP. Thanks to some good friends (Looking at you, Chris, Luka, Olivier and Ryan!) I learned quite a lot about the software and started working with Essentials. This game had a few different names in the past: first it was known as Pokémon Climate Clash, then Pokémon Deep Balance, and now, after a lot of visual updates and just as much updates to the storyline, it is known as Pokémon Nova Luna.

I have learned so much the last few years thanks to this project and I think I can say that I have become a way better artist and maybe person thanks to this fangame. I am very proud that I am able to present this to you and I hope you will have loads of fun playing it. Enjoy!

STORYLINE
Our hero is a teenager living in the calm Neta Village. Our protagonist isn’t the ordinary teenager though: His dad, a generous man admired by many, is one of the best Pokémon Trainers in the region. He has developed a strong bond with his Pokémon and made his way to the finals of the Pokémon League in the year 2017. He managed to win the tournament, not because of the raw power his Pokémon had, but because of their bond, stronger than diamond. He was The Champion for about a year. In 2018 he had to defend his title in the final of the Pokémon League. To everyone’s surprise, businessman Duncan made it to the final battle. Duncan was known to be a decent Pokémon trainer, but good enough to come this far? The region was excited to see our hero’s dad and Duncan go to the peak of Mount Vibal, Hawk’s Peak, a legendary peak in the Vibal Mountain Range where Pokémon battles have been held for over a decade. Many Trainers became a legend on this peak.


The Lunavi Region, a vast region with many different biomes.

This time, however, is different. Not in the way the battle went, it was very close. Duncan was holding its own against our hero’s dad. No, it was different in the way it ended…

The Lurna Region has changed. All you see is peace, but that is a mere shadow from the truth. Fear, crime, danger: It’s everywhere. Yet you do not see it. No one sees it.

Our hero emerges from the shadows of his or her father when he and Duncan disappear. Travelling through the whole Lunavi Region, our protagonist embarks on a journey. Bigger than he or she would have imagined.

On his adventure, our hero has to find out what in the world happened to his dad and his challenger. Defeat Pokémon Gyms, unravel mysteries and rescue your father. But watch out, as no one knows what awaits in the shadows…

Just ran into a bug in the beta: When I entered the elevator again in that Battle Challenge place before the first gym, going from B1F to B2F, I get stuck inside the elevator on the second basement floor.

@above It's working on my xp lol.



Due to the lack of time thanks to the examinations I have played only for five minutes.There are few suggestions...
Well I am not a game developer like you guys so what I throw might be impossible :x
But I liked the game map very much, the only fault being that the sprites are off (but you happen to mention that you don't have a reg. spriter so that won't be much of a problem for the next versions hopefully).
I find the youngster battling the player very abrupt, a word of introduction is important?
Well at least something more than a "Hi let's fight."
Also this guy called Dennis happened to gift you a Pokemon.And isn't that something noteworthy? Then certainly your mother would happen to say something about something that important right?
A sentence of motivational speech or something?
Also in the scenario in which the weavile and Aggron battle the cries of Gliscor and Blaziken are heard.
I think it's supposed to be the cries of weavile and Aggron.
Here are their Pokedex Numbers(Weavile-461,Aggron-306)
Maybe you should consider adding sometime of pause at few points.Like your mom calling after you reach your new home,its very abrupt.
The Numel standing beside the old woman should say something when you talk to it right?
These are things I noticed while playing the five minutes.
Thank you, the things I pointed out are in the customer(/what ever the correct term is)'s point of view so I hope I am not asking you to something that's impossible to do.

The flaws I pointed out are simple and small ones which spoil the gamer's attention, I think your game has a great story line judging from the prologue.

Thank you so very much for pointing these out! I really appreciate your criticism. All of these are fixed in the new version.

Fixed in the new version.

I've uploaded a new version of Pokemon Deep Balance, fixing the elevator bug and edited the stuff Dracoflare mentioned. It's pretty different from the previous release because I was already working on Beta 3. I didn't mean to release this new stuff to the public, but that probably doesn't matter ;) Tiles have been changed in this release, there is an overall better feel thanks to the updated palette, the changed music and some edited graphics. Some maps have been changed too, and the Pokemon sprites are now animated again :3
Download here:
http://www.4shared.com/zip/xy185vgn/...B02202261.html

I had to use 4Shared for this release, the packages are getting way too big for MediaFire to handle xD Probably due to the animated sprites. If any of you now of a good replacement, please let me know :)

I got excited when the new version retained my save file. However, in order to get past the bug, I still had to restart. I must say, the beginning is much more well done (yay no misleading unclimbable staircase!)

Unfortunately, I ran into another, rather large bug: after the initial conversation with the mom, when the protag leaves the house, the sound cuts out and it has yet to come back for me. I don't personally mind playing without sound, but it's generally considered kind of important.

EDIT: Found another bug: now I cannot overwrite save games. It tells me that the save failed every time.

That's rather strange. Are you sure your sound is turned on? If yes, can you press F1 while running the game and tell me if the "Play BGM and ME" box is ticked on?

Also, is there someone else with this error?

About the other bug, is the old savefile the savefile from an old version?
If it is, go to Users/[yournamehere]/Saved Games/Pokemon Deep Balance/ (assuming you're using Win7) and delete the files located there. The problem will probably be solved then. If it isn't there, search for Game.rxdata (make sure it's in a folder of Deep Balance!) and delete it.

Okay, here's what to do:


  • Open the Game.ini file in your installation folder and check your installation folder for the .dll-file mentioned in line two. If you do not have that file, download a new one. Google helps.
  • Try running in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Hope it works ;)

The box is ticked and has always been ticked. No sounds still.

However, deleting the save file did repair the saving issues. But still no sound.
