Introducing a new hack:

MEGAMAN
Battle Network 7
LOST DIMENSION

Rom: FireRed (U)

INTRODUCTION:
Hello, I am known as DarkMidnightNova. This is my second attempt at a hack, and I want it to be great! I've been working on making a new Megaman Battle Network hack using a pokemon firered rom, and I believe it can be pulled off. This is a solo hacking project, and I appreciate the comments you have given me


I also attached a banner for those who want to support my hack

STORY:
Spoiler:


(Takes place 2 Years after the plot of BN 6)
Deep within the depths of the Undernet, lies the Lost
Dimension... This is the dreaded realm where the data of the deleted are sent... (You could think of it as the Trash Can LOL)

One night in the undernet, Bass comes to contact with an evil
being, who plans to open the doors of the lost dimension. This mysterious man (Can't spoil it) promises Bass the power to defeat MegaMan.

Upon unlocking the doors, all the evil navi's and bosses Megaman
has encountered will be revived(eg. Alpha, Duo, Life Virus, Falzar, Gregar,
Nebula). One by one, Bass will fuse with these bosses, and achieve an
apocalyptic form; one that is strong enough to bring the internet to reality.

But there is a stronger force at play. When the doors were
unlocked, what also came out was the first virus ever to be discovered.
Scientists deleted it when the internet was first created, and now it has
returned; even stronger due to its ability to absorb the energy of deleted
data.

The presence of this virus has caused the human world to stop in
time and converge with the net.

Without the help of Lan, Megaman has to find a way to obtain the
power to stop this virus, while Bass wants this same power to destroy
Megaman. What will happen? Who knows....










FEATURES:
  • Play as Megaman and later Protoman joins your team (yay!)
  • New and tense plot!
  • Explore the vast Net as well as materialize into the Real World!
  • Fresh and new gameplay experience!
  • Unique sprites and areas!
  • Recurring characters such as protoman, roll, gutsman, and bad guys!
  • New Crosses (Fuse with old bosses eg. Alpha Cross, Duo Cross, Life Cross, etc.) as well as the Cyber Beasts.
  • Interesting Tiles
  • Possible Future Features: New intro, titlescreen, and music!
SCREENSHOTS:

(See attachments)


CREDITS:
I acknowledge the wonderful people who made hacking tools and
I also give credit to the creator of Alistair Rom Base, since I am grateful for the textboxes and amazing outdoor tiles

NO BUGS OR GLITCHES AS OF YET! (Let me know if you find one though)


DEMO 2 IS OUT!
Now for the Demo 2, (You will have to play from the beginning since the intro is finally added. Your save file from DEMO 1 would be invalid) there are much more treats inside. You get to experience the first chapter to the plot. Megaman starts off in sci-lab as a materialized copybot and you soon learn that there will be a world net battling tournament held soon - - - This is just a vague start to this demo.

Have fun playing MEGAMAN BATTLE NETWORK 7: LOST DIMENSION!

Oh and be sure to check out everything in this game! There are many hidden secrets you may miss if you just skip through everything

Waaaa!! This is awesome! The sprites, the gameplay, the story!
I'm going to try the demo now, and try to give a comment or two.

I'd like to see this finished.
Good luck!

*EDIT:
I played the demo, here are my thoughts:

The CONS:

- MEGA MAN's icon in-battle looks a bit weird. It continuously bounces up and down.

- MEGA MAN's moves seems to be lacking something.. (Though I can't really pinpoint exactly what.)
I mean, MEGA BUSTER(BULLET SEED) seems to be too weak to even lay a scratch on those nasty viruses currently.
Just improve the damage a bit and it'll be fine.. That, or add another attack like SLASH maybe, and rename it to something.


The PROS:

- I like this part of the game(*the beginning.). The OW sprites are well done.

- The ITEMS are well done as well.


That's all. I hope that I've helped in some way, and good luck with this!

I agree.

Ah, of course.
What I'm trying to say here is not to completely remove the icon's movements, but to minimize it.

Like this:
Spoiler:



*When idle the other Pokemon in the party can be that of without movement.


But meh.. 'Guess you're right. It's not that important anyway.

I can think of a variety of reasons:
  • hacking a pokémon game into a mega man game is certainly much more original than making a mega man game into another mega man game
  • the op may not have the hacking know-how to hack mega man and may prefer to hack pokémon
  • the op may prefer the way pokémon plays out as a rpg style game with a solid battling system over the way mega man plays out
  • the op may prefer pokémon over mega man but like them both so wants to hack one into the other to add more variety into a community that needs it
  • I'm nowhere near an expert on the mega man community (heck, I actually know nothing about it) but the pokémon hacking community (particularly 3rd generation games) is very advanced without having to delve too much into the mechanics of the game so it may actually be easier to hack than mega man
Now on to the actual hack, I commend you for actually bringing something different to the community. This very much reminds me of a while ago when someone hacked firered to be a mario themed game and it was both very well received in the community and was also a solid, different game. I may have never played a mega man game but I am quite excited to play this when a substantial beta is released as I believe it can be a breath of fresh air around here. Good job.

The game, So far, looks really good but there's a few things... Like how are you going to evolve things? Will it be like Gateman, Gameman V2 and then Gateman V3? Will we be able to catch viruses!? I don't want to go through the whole game with only megaman in my team. That's about it, keep up the good work

DEMO 2 IS COMPLETE! Featuring even more content

I even added some new screens and a support banner - - - check it out!

@glaceon12 : The evolving process is not like that of pokemon. In this game, megaman will obtain Data fragments from the bosses he defeats. Later on in the story, Dr. Hikari uprgrades megaman so he can use the power/ fragments of the bosses and unite with that data to gain its abilities. Its like giving a stone to let a pokemon to evolve, but there will be an item which will allow megaman to be reverted to his normal state; like devolving in digimon.

Oh, and Protoman will also join your team in the game you will be able cross with him as well as use his varius abilities in battle.

The Megaman battle networks were my favorite GBA games next to pokemon! (Especially the third and second one). This looks great, I'll play it when I get a chance and give a better analysis of it.

One thing though, Megaman only has...four moves. Obvoiusly we can't get around this (yet) as a community, but just, one of the points of the Megaman battle networks was that there were many chips and such. Maybe make a "move learner machine" and you can customize your moveset at will depending on what "chips" you collect.
