Hey, DRG: I noticed a problem with the evolution of Fraxure to Haxorus. It's attack goes down, instead of going up. I checked on YAPE, and it went from 117 to 110. It should be 145 IIRC. Just throwin that out there.
Edit: When Kirlia evolves to Gallade, it's Level goes up by a bit. I went to YAPE again, and the EXP rates do not match. Gallade's EXP Growth should be 1,250,000.

The omni region will be in Dark Rising 2. After Blitz, go through the door behind him to reach Malice Path and then to Draco Village through the building.

Haxorus stats and Gallade exp growth have been fixed in the latest update. Everyone be sure to download it until I return. Thank You.

However nice these grass tiles may look normally, they look *very bad* when the player is walking through them.



Considering that this battle comes with no warning in the first area before you have Pokeballs, it should probably be toned down- that damage was from a single Weather Ball at full HP.



I got lucky with the RNG so this battle wasn't as difficult but I still think it's rather silly to demand the player to defeat level 12s with Intimidate before getting Pokeballs, to say nothing of the fact that you gave the Axew line Intimidate...



This is about as nonsensical as it gets for an area transition. Who sets up shop in a cave?



Every part of this encounter is soul-crushingly awful- the protagonist being railroaded into being an idiot with badly written dialogue is one thing, but then having a tutorial advise the player to use "strategy" in the face of a railroaded level 50 battle is insulting. Up to this point there have been zero opportunities to use any strategy whatsoever, as the player is not able to catch any other Pokemon, acquire any renewable items, or use moves other than Sand-Attack, Tackle, and Bite. The fact that the protagonist is both the tall opposite of silent and an idiot does not help.



I really don't have much motivation to play beyond this point, other than to continue poking holes in it- the writing is painful to read, the maps are a mess, and the game itself looks to be an poorly balanced and actively hostile grind.
The reason why you probably haven't heard anyone else critisize about these issues before is the fact the people who actually care didn't bother writing anything about it.

I personally tested this hack in Vizzed and couldn't help noticing all the things that were also pointed out here; several tile errors and bad planning at some point of the game. For instance the way you encounter that teacher using Roselia there, it shouldn't happen so you're forced to fight her, especially not because she will totally beat you up if you aren't well-prepared to face her.
It could have simply been implemented so that you could choose either YES or NO and that way, actually control the actions of the main character.

About that mart being there in the cave, I guess it makes sense because you have to get "Oak's Parcel" or whatever replaces it in this hack. Should have been implemented some other way, if possible.

Then the Tornadus battle... I can't remember what I was thinking when I had to face it. I probably laughed actually, it felt something so silly. Why should you have to face a level 50 Tornadus in the beginning of the game? If you want that to happen, go ahead but a battle like this one would have required modifying the text shown during those "introductions of battle strategies" at least.


All in all, this is not a bad hack at all (although I made it to sound like that). There are of course many good things about it as well. But just pointing out that there are several issues with it that should be fixed to make it reasonable at times.

As advice though; if you're not going to fix these issues, try to do the job better with DR2. Loaning the words of the guy who I quoted, this is actually an important thing to keep in mind; "The fact that the protagonist is both the tall opposite of silent and an idiot does not help.". There are times when you actually should make the protagonist talk!

In a game that diverts from the original pokemon typish gameplay like this does, you should consider making the main character talk during the cutscenes like this one here. They do that in almost every RPG game there, I might even say pokemon is one of the few exceptions where the main character doesn't normally talk and it's not like a rom hack must follow the same path.

All that being said, I didn't come here to shout "how bad this hack is". No. I personally wouldn't want to see someone to do the same thing with my hack.
But the thing is there are lots of things there that should be improved if you wanted the hack to be good and actually fun to be played.

Great ROM but I am playing via gameboid on my galaxy s3. I got really far but it just ended. Do you have an updated version that is .GBA compatible?! Or a way to patch it so it will play via my boy or gameboid!

Thanks!

Huh, weird. You might have clicked an ad or something. The download link you click is at the bottom of the first page, just fyi.

I've already explained this phenomenon.
Also DrG said that they are already infected by Darugis so those weird looking Tynamos make sense in the hack

Actually she just threw it there to explain it xD

Anyways, I'm continuing with the hack and... for some reason errors keep on coming, nothing game breaking, though...
I'm just letting it pass even though one did make me mad... when you battle the old dude in vestibule, if you do the bad thing and talk with his OW, you battle him and then you must battle him again as tile script... :/ Not cool as you don't get more M-Balls...
But I'm kinda starting to hate the level difference... I mean... in the lab you might walk into an elevator by accident and you are engadged into battle with 6 >80lv Pokémon... not to mention battle with your rival, again >80lv Pokémon... this is kinda overkill for 5th gym... I mean it's nice to have Lucky Eggs and we get nice exps for those high leveled Pokémon but serously... You have, at best, team of 65-70lvs there so you get killed immediately... Not having "overleveled" (75) Lucario and Umbreon, I would be dead meat in no time...
Since you pretty much don't have access to good grinding spot as the desert requires you to beat your rival and new boss (who wasn't that bad, though...)

If you still can't download the patch, here is the way to download it. Cheers!

Spoiler:
1. Go to the first post.
2. Go down and find "Attached Files".
3. Click the "DarkRising1Completed(Updated)" and you should download it.

Gee. That's something. That's not supposed to happen. Just keep looking.. Patch in a clean Fire Red ROM.


Geee.. DRG.. I forgot where to find Cut. Where is it? XD (K. I'm a total noob.)

I don't know if someone has posted this before, because I'm too lazy to read previous post XD, but the answer for the quiz "Does Darumaka has a Zen Mode?" in Millennium City's Gym is set as "Yes" while it should've been "No". Also, since I picked Dratini at the start, my rival picked Gible, but when I battled him at Spirit Tower, he didn't have his Garchomp, but a Salamence. You should fix those things.

Darumakka has no Zen Mode.
Darmantian is the one who has.
And yes, Zen Mode is available.

Btw, this got me wondering... anyone encountered this phenomenon?:
If you battle OW Pokémon (e.g. legendaries) if you catch them, they won't disappear (flag isn't set) but if you defeat them, they do (flag is finally set) =D
