An introduction to your project
This project began because we saw a need for a complete Pokemon experience in a massively multiple online world. Other projects have attempted to bring the full Pokemon experience to a MMORPG layout but have left a great deal to be desired. We plan on exceeding previous projects and bringing even more unique experiences to the world of Pokemon.

The plot
PokeMMO is based currently off of the FireRed version of pokemon. We strive to bring about the closest feel as possible to the FireRed version possible. There is not much else to describe as far as plot is concerned.

I think he meant that the game itself is based off of Fire Red, like the graphics, music, etc, not that a rom is needed.

Hello Khkramer,
Our server requires FireRed rom to operate as we do not provide any copyrighted material to play our server. That would be copyright infringement. You must locate a rom compatible with our server to play. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Roms are not illegal so long as you own the real copy of the game.

This is false. It's a widespread myth.

Quote:
Can I Download a Nintendo ROM from the Internet if I Already Own the Authentic Game?

There is a good deal of misinformation on the Internet regarding the backup/archival copy exception. It is not a "second copy" rule and is often mistakenly cited for the proposition that if you have one lawful copy of a copyrighted work, you are entitled to have a second copy of the copyrighted work even if that second copy is an infringing copy. The backup/archival copy exception is a very narrow limitation relating to a copy being made by the rightful owner of an authentic game to ensure he or she has one in the event of damage or destruction of the authentic. Therefore, whether you have an authentic game or not, or whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet.
(Source)

Essentially, unless the person made the backup themselves, it's an illegal ROM. I know this isn't the time nor the place to discuss the legality of ROMs, but I really don't think you should be telling anyone it's legal either.

Other than that, though, interesting what you've done so far. Is it just the first generation that's going to be available, or will you incorporate the other generations into Kanto in addition?

I never stated how you must obtain the rom so my statement is no invalid. We do not have control over how players obtain a rom. But like you said I do not believe this is the arena to discuss.

Extracting the data from a rom that is not distributed by you is one of the best ideas I've ever seen in the pokemon mo scene.

Kudos to this project

I'm not sure on this but if you are extracting data directly from a ROM, you should also be able to check it's authenticity via the ROM's id. If it is a pirated copy you will probably have multiple people using that ROM's id. See if you can make a log of these and tie them to the user accounts for reference.

I can't help but imagine that's going to be very limiting... not everyone has the means to get a ROM off a cart, and what if they never bought Fire Red specifically? I understand that you want to discourage piracy and whatnot, but I don't think many people are going to be able to get a legit ROM very easily, if that's what your game ends up requiring.

You'd be surprised at how dirty the rom can be and still run fine with PokeMMO. It doesn't really need a perfect dump. Most Fire Red roms should work, including ones downloaded illegally. There is virtually no difference between a self dumped rom and one downloaded of the internet, because they all come from the same kind of cart (well, each version of the cart).

Basically, there is no "legit" rom. All roms are the same if they are dumped properly. And I'm sure most people here have knowledge on how to acquire roms, whether Kosher or not.

Well, if that's how it is, then okay! I'm still kinda wondering why you need a ROM to play an online game that's apparently being programmed from scratch, but whatever.
