What I mean by being done with 2D hacking is that I'll be quitting unless I get super motivated one day, or someone finally makes a D/P map viewer/editor (not me tho cuz I'm lazy). I actually wanted to stop since June, but I had promised a release and forced myself to work. I'm not moving on to anything.
As long as you understand what you're doing, it would be possible to recode the whole game into something else. There aren't that large limitations in GBA hardware; you can point anywhere in rom which is for example impossible in GB/C. There is also A LOT more ram to work with. I do know most of the ram is "echoed" but still, there is a plenty of room for adding new stuff in the workable parts of it.

If you wanted to create something very unique, it would only be a matter of knowing how to do so.

I meant actual hardware limitations. As in, you can't run an exact copy of a 360 game on a GBA.

I know this is probably a really dumb question...but when is the final version out, do you think? I'd just like a really good idea of when to start playing, since I'm still a newbie to the hack rom world, and I don't want to risk corrupting my saved game and starting over again. (If this is the final version, tell me so and laugh at my noobness.)

Hinkage is really burnt out, so I think he'll either stick it out and bug fix everything that needs fixing, or just call it quits methinks. So, IMO this is probably the final release for at least a little while.

Hinky, can you shed some light on this? :)

Sorry to see you lose motivation, hopefully one day you'll come back (like me :D ).

On the other hand, you will only feel limited if you follow the cliche and obvious route there is in a fire red game. Your mind is not limited, be creative see what you can do.

Giradialkia deleted the links because he and Dr. Fuji are upset I "insulted" Fireworks merely by making an NPC with the name "Fireworks" who brags about how awesome a hacker he is, when in reality he is not so good.

I had asked Gira to make a post informing all of you of the deleted links, so you would be aware I didn't remove them out of the blue, but his lack of a reply seems to indicate he just wants my masterpiece to fail. Nonetheless, I'll be uploading a fixed version without the character "Fireworks".


As for future updates, I dunno. I really want to start doing real, 3D enviroment games. I think Zelda OOT is cool, so I'm going to try to passively learn that; there's not really any tools for it besides Utility of Time (and I dunno how it handles event/script editing), so we'll see how it goes.

Pokecommunity isn't the only place you can show your game off on

There are places like romhacking.net and such, I know places like that wouldn't remove links over something so petty.

Best of Luck to you

Sounds like butthurt, but that's probably just me. Is it not a joke, that ol' Fireworks char?

Disrespect on PC is not allowed, regardless as to whether it is in the form of a post or a hack.

The idea that the NPC is in no way related to the PC member Fireworks is completely absurd, as other members have been portrayed in Hyetology. There is absolutely no room for coincidence or joking in this situation as we know that the two of you have a less than amicable relationship. With that in mind, the NPC is just a poor and troll-worthy representation which has no place on these forums. Members have even posted reactions to the NPC which were in themselves inflammatory and required moderation. I would like to repeat myself from earlier: Disrespect on PC is not allowed, regardless as to whether it is in the form of a post or a hack.

giradialkia and I had issued a warning and our intent to remove the links unless the NPC was removed/ changed completely, but since that did not take place we took action. We did not make a post here informing everybody that the links to downloads had been removed as we had contacted hinkage privately and didn't feel that such a post was necessary - Members could easily scroll down to see that it was myself or gira who had edited the links in the posts.



Now please keep this thread on topic. This thread should be about the hack itself, not future plans or discussions about the NPC. hinkage, if you want to contact us then feel free to do so through PM.

hinkage, it looks like your really burnt out, maybe take a little break from hacking, but remember to come back to it. a good hacker always finishes his projects and you should be proud of what you have here. a near completed hack, i'll biet, with a few minor bugs scattered around, but is has a good storyline, not following the courses of the original games, keeps it interesting, but like i said please do not leave this hack, if you were to finish this hack, it would probaly be award quality~

I'm going to continue to update this, if people want.

Additionally, if anyone has played up until Dead Island, you may have noticed a special cave that leads to faraway places. In the future, that will be important, hopefully.

Rant:
Spoiler:
Hyetology had its ups and downs mostly because I really didn't want to continue. But I had made a promise to finish, so I did. I had a lot lot of good ideas at the beginning, but as time went on I think I tried too hard to make the "perfect" story. I also tried to take a naturally darker game and force it to be light-hearted. That was dumb of me.
I'm still very much interested in 3D games, and would rather do those, but I have no idea (and honestly, no desire to learn) how to do all the nitty-gritty hacking gen IV and V currently require. I love game design, and even tried taking Java but it just wasn't for me (also my teacher was ****, gave me an A and we never did anything). I guess for now I have to wait until one of the awesome hackers like Spiky, etc., makes a completely user-friendly tool for me :P.
I mean, I have knowledge of everything basic, like textures, polygons, some scripting, and collisions for 3D games... Though nothing more, and I don't have time now.



^What is this I don't even... Major tangent.

It could be better. But no matter what I do, this hack will never even make it out of Progressing Hacks, let alone get a nomination mostly because the mods hate me, which is annoying.

For instance, I won the Map of the Quarter contest (got 1st out of 3 bby aw yea!!1) and still haven't gotten an emblem over a month after the competition ended. Oh, and I know Gira saw his shoutouts, too. And he'll probably read this post. GIRA GIVE ME MY EMBLEM. THOSE PIXELS ARE MY LIFE. In all seriousness, I won and deserve what was promised, ****.

Aw =/ I know how it feels to be burnt out from making a hack. If you have any motivation left at all, please keep going though. I was really looking forward to seeing this completed. But I've downloaded the current Beta.

Hinkage, please continue this hack. It has to be the most original ever. No Pokedex quest, no boring dialogue, the Pokemon center nurse sounds like an Irish pub owner, etc, etc. The only improvement that I may suggest would be some sort of Map, so it would be easier to navigate. And there are some very funny glitches in New Gotham. Keep it up with the humor. And If you want to try 3D, try hacking Pokemon Colosseum. That would be epic.
Yours Sincerely,
Khan of the 7 Seas

What's THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? It's tough to continue because of school though, and that's the honest truth. I'd put in a map if someone made a map, but I can't draw for ****.
