Of all hacks that had increased difficulty, what's the hardest hack that you ever played? Tell us on how you tried to adjust to it or your team. Have you raged on this somehow?

I'll answer my question later.

Pokemon Shiny Gold got on my last nerve, I couldn't beat Carlos in New Bark Town or at the Pokemon League

I think Bloody Platinum is up there with its legendary E4.

I think Pokemon Snakewood was quite difficult, even though I've only played that and Vega (but haven't made much progress in either)

On the general side, Sonic & Knuckles Master Edition is downright insane.

I've returned. Be afraid, be very afraid.

I don't see anywhere where this asks about a pokemon game, so I'd have to say Cool or Cruel. The creator of this hack must have hated humanity. Took me upwards of fifty hours with savestates to beat. I threw my controller at the wall because of how one level had to be beaten... Yeah... I'd even rank this harder than an I Wanna Be The Guy hack I played...

Its Ruby Destiny - Life Of Guardians for me.The Final event was seriously hard.Enemies having lv.100 Legendary pokemon and battling the Ruby Destiny countless times was just frustrating.

And Snakewood comes close given its seriously high Lvs.

Pokemon Shiny Gold X, it was nearly impossible for carlos in the beginning of the game. Level grinding is a must. if you arent the best pokemon trainer in the UNIVERSE its hard. I quit it at the 7th gym. Its a great game though.(I played the game for 52 HOURS)

So far, Shiny Gold X has made me cut myself. Snakewood comes in second place.

Pokemon Vega is one of the hardest I've played. Pokemon Procyon/Deneb is right behind it in terms of difficulty.

Pokemon Dark Rising almost made me rip my hair out. The final event was also seriously hard. xD

Hands down, hardest hack in history - Zelda Parallel Worlds. That game is pure hell and amazing for it. Heck, you don't even get the sword and shield NOR the ability to save until very late in the first dungeon! (The dungeon itself is already very challenging) Hidden mechanics such as seemingly locked doors that can't be opened, you walk through them, upgrading your sword is optional, (and can't even be done until AFTER one of the major bosses, while in the original game, you're required to have the Master Sword before that part) and the sheer challenge of the dungeons make this game unbelievably difficult!

I highly recommend this hack and prove just how hard it really is!

As for Pokemon games, I'd say Ruby Destiiny Life of Guardians provides quite a challenge. The Master 17, the final bosses, and generally the overall game is nice enough to never be too easy for you. Also Light Platinum is very well balanced and can be quite difficult if you choose to avoid trainers and/or level just the starter. Trust me, you really want to be balanced in that game.
Hacks I'm currently working on:
Pokemon Sapphire Hoenn's Ruin - My own hack, "actively" making progress.
3rd Gen Multiplayer Project - Research and development, occasionally testing, sometimes with support.
Pokemon Ruby Destiny Broken Timeline - Mapped assigned maps. Hoping for more some time.
Pokemon Cursed/Creepy White - Group project, on hiatus for now with plans to return eventually.

Been super busy with work, life, and laptop problems. Hopefully I can get back into it soon, I fear I'm already rusty. Meanwhile I'm considering writing my hack as a fanfic.
