Hack Information:
Official Hack Title (Changed as of 1/3/13): Pokemon DarkJasper Version
ROM Base: FireRed BPRE
Creator: shinyabsol1
Hack Status: Progressing


Introduction:

Spoiler:
Hello PokéCommunity, I am shinyabsol1. I started hacking a couple of years ago, and since then it has been a goal of mine to create a Pokémon hack. I could have slapped something together a long time ago and put it on here, but instead I decided to do a lot of learning first. So I have spent much time over the past few years getting experience in many different areas of Pokémon ROM hacking. There were struggles at times, but also many successes. Now, I am ready to present to you the beginning stages of my hack (which, at the moment, truly conveys only the tip of the iceberg of what I plan to do)!


Story:

Spoiler:
Welcome to Somia: a treacherous yet beautiful land far from all other Pokémon regions. Topical coastline alongside pristine waters and countless isles surround an untamed interior filled with forests that rise up to the regions Heavens mountain range at its center. But don’t let the peaceful façade fool you. The region hides a secret that will thrust you into the midst of doings predicted long ago by the oracles of Somia. A radical dream researching team, known as CYPRUS, threaten the security of mind and body alike as they search for “dream cores”, the power behind our dreams. Should they succeed in their attempt to gain the power of dreams, nobody is safe from darkness and nightmares. But getting the cores is not simple, and not all cores are alike in power…it will take time and daring penetration into dreams in order to claim these prizes.

What is your role in the fate of the region? Will CYPRUS be able to collect the power of dreams? And just what IS their motive? Find out when you play Pokémon: DarkJasper Version

Loves the graphics. They all fit well together. Can't wait to see how amazing the world map will look! World maps are actually my favorite part of rom hacks.

Thank you. I tried to make the tiles/palettes fit well together. As for the world map, it is done! I'll upload a screenshot when it is inserted.

Thanks. The reason there are no screenshots of events is because I have not started scripting yet. I plan to start today/the next few days.

It's not out yet. Also, for future reference, no need to quote the first post, you can just say what you have to say, even if it refers to the first post's subject matter.

My only issue lies in this screenshot, the path to be specific. The edges of the path does not blend with the grass (that darky brown bit) when in fact it should at least be the same colour as the grass, as this looks wrong.

I noticed that too a while ago, but forgot to change it. Thanks for reminding me! I'll get it done.

Progress Report!

I was having some trouble with the battle background, but I got a solution for my problem. With that issue out of the way, I should be able to provide screenshots of the battle background, hero overworld, and hero battle sprites by sometime tomorrow!

Thanks.

Update!

Here are a few more screens, showing the new hero overworlds/backsprites and battlebackground!





This one also has the professor's lab in it. And ignore the tile error with the fences: I forgot to insert a tile to fix it.



I was also messing around with the palettes of various battle screen related things, so those color changes are just a draft. What do you guys think of them?


Also, the palette error that Banjora Marxvile noticed has been fixed. I updated that screenshot in the first post.

I have been hacking for around three years. If you would like to do a banner for me, go right ahead!


small Update!

I updated the OP to list a few more features that I plan to have in this hack. And also, I have finished inserting the world map, so I will be uploading a screenshot of that later today when I get around to it.

Wow. Just wow.

We've finally got another hack with great graphics thus far, in progress on Pokécommunity..
So, in case you've not noticed, the graphics I see in this hack are so goodly done I've no complaints about them.

The story makes me think that
Spoiler:
Darkrai may play part in the story
somewhere, which is good, he's a little underloved anyway.

Anyway, I wish ya the bestest of lucks with this.

Thanks Nintendork15! I worked hard to get the graphics the way you see them now! And hard on the graphics you don't see yet as well!

lol, I think your hunch about

Spoiler:
Darkrai may be right


Anyways, here's that Update! I promised earlier:


World Map!

...Along with a couple of other bonus screenshots:


Port area


A route I've been working on


Also, I've been thinking about a name change for this hack--- I'm not particularly thrilled with the one it has right now. So while I'm thinking about that, I'm open to suggestions from anyone.

What does the rom hack player think is a good title for this hack?

Here are a few you could use :

Pokemon Sweet Dreams & Nightmare versions (How about a sequel? >:3)

Pokemon Dream Eaters

Pokemon Legend of Somia (Ripped from RomReaverz's Legend of Fenju Much o.o)

Pokemon Dream Core Adventures

That's all I can think of... And also, once you have decided, please notify me! I could do you a few titlescreens (Just the text 'Fire Red' and I could also change the charizard to another pokemon if you want, but I cannot make backgrounds and stuffs cuz I sux at them )

Yes, it's my decision, I'm just asking for the input of others if they have any...
...and the title 'Pokemon Jasper' was not supposed to fit with the plot, it was just a color that I chose.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll consider them, and I will notify you when I decide (don't know how long that will be). And it would be nice if you could do the text for me! I already know how to insert titlescreens, so I don't think that I'll need help with that, but getting the text to look good is sort of a weakness in my hacking skills

---

Other suggestions for the title still welcome, btw. I'll update the first post at the top to say that.

Loving the world map!
Did you make it yourself?

It's just perfect, decent amount of land space, and the usual amount of required water areas.
Town amount is perfect and so is the shape!!

Well done, again!!
