Demo 6 is finished and uploading - 6/9/2015

Hello everybody. My name is DerxwnaKapsyla. For roughly 6 years now, I've aspired to create a Pokemon fangame, starting with hacking the rom. Unfortunately, even after years passed, my patience wasn't strong enough, and my determination to finish wasn't persistent. I'd occasionally break the roms and lose all interest. The scripting language made no sense to my younger mind (and still, to this day doesn't). I gave up on hacking when my game just broke for no reason I could figure out. That's when I remembered that RPG Maker XP existed, as well as Pokemon Essentials.

For about two years, I've been working with Pokemon Essentials to try and develop the game that I had been envisioning for the past 6 years. While it never came to fruition and is currently undergoing revival, I didn't remain discouraged. I set out to create a new game, Pokemon Inferno Red - a Gen II remake of Gen I. This was going along relatively smoothly, little-to-no complications. While I waited for people who offered to help bug test to actually bug test it, I had discovered that I wanted to make a Touhoumon game, since I was (and still am) currently hooked onto the Touhou series. I realized that, since the only Touhoumon games were GBA-made, I'd have to work to extract all the assets myself and then port them into Pokemon Essentials. That's where the Touhoumon Development Starter Kit got its start.

The DevKit was originally to be a side project to Pokemon Inferno Red, but as time drew on, I found myself much less interested in a simple Pokemon Fangame, and put full effort and devotion into the DevKit. After undergoing constant revisions, a change in generation mechanics, and numerous people yelling at me, I managed to finish and release the Touhoumon Development Starter Kit.

While I was working on that DevKit, I was working on my own Touhoumon game on the side - Touhoumon Faith & Prayer Version. To me, I always felt that there was a story that the Touhoumon world should have, instead of just a generic Pokemon replacement. This game is my attempt at conveying my vision of Touhoumon, as I see it. I can only hope that you all will enjoy it.

Terminology:
Spoiler:
Touhoumon/Puppets:
  • These are the invaders that invaded the Pokemon World a decade years after RGB. They are capturable and trainable versions of the inhabitants of Gensokyo, a mystical land that exists on an alternate plane of existence. How they got into the world is not quite know, but due to them being there, Pokemon in general have gone into hiding. Some across their respective regions, some fleeing to the Kokoto Continent, south of Kanto, where they are now under close watch. Regular Pokemon will not make an overwhelming appearance in the wild, but some Pokemon can be found. Also, some people may be willing to trade you Pokemon in exchange for some Touhoumon. After two years' time, Touhoumon are now the dominant species in a majority of the Pokemon World, with Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos being the only regions virtually untouched.
Gensokyo:
  • Gensokyo is the mystical land featured in the game series Touhou Project, produced by ZUN. There are a variety of games that extend off this series (Currently up to TH14: Double Dealing Character), and a multitude of fanmade games (Koumajou Densetsu/Touhouvania, Touhou Puppet Play/Touhoumon, Fushigi no Gensokyo, etc)

Plot:
[Notice: The Introduction phase (Act 0) is based off of the fanfic "Touhou Puppet Play: A Viewpoint, by Lone Wolf Neo. I do not take credit for writing it, and have received his permission to use its likeness as the Introduction phase of the game.]
Act 0: The Invaders

Spoiler:
"So far, we are unable to determine the cause of this massive outbreak of this invasive species, and researchers are working around the clock to identify these humanoid creatures with characteristics unlike anything we have come across before. Until a conclusive answer can be achieved, we will refer to these creatures as..."

Lots of stuff has happened in the years after Red had beaten the Kanto League and disbanded Team Rocket. Many youths from all over had followed in his footsteps (Even if they didn't quite know it.), such as Gold in Johto. Ruby and Sapphire in Hoenn, Lucas and Dawn in Sinnoh - they all saved their respective regions from takeover by factions that sought to destroy it. Natural disasters have stricken and been recovered from, such as the Cinnabar Volcano eruption, and the mudslide of Route 23. Things have tested the resolve of humans and Pokemon alike in these past 8 years. But none of these events were anything compared to what was happening now - an invasion.

Two years before present day, Professor Oak, head professor of the Kanto region, led an expedition to the Cave of Origin located in Sootopolis City, Hoenn. It was there that the first of the invaders were spotted. Upon first glance, they were mistaken as normal Pokemon, but various tests proved otherwise. Eventually, these invaders started spreading all over.

Eventually, Pokemon were driven out of their habitats by these species, now called Puppets, and their fighting. Pokemon have gone into hiding since then, some even taking refuge in an island preservation south of the Kanto region. Very few trainers have Pokemon left with them, and those that do seldom fight with them.

Within a year, Pokemon became the minority to the Puppets.

Two years have passed since the invasion of the Touhoumon, and humans have adapted to the new ways of life. Trainers capture and train Touhoumon, and enter them into the various Regional Leagues around the planet.

You play as either Maribel Hearn or Renko Usami, two females who are on a search across Monsekai, the Pokemon World, to discover why the Puppets have invaded, the rumors behind this mysterious alternate dimension, and how the both of them are connected. However, the questing won't be easy, as corrupt factions from a decade ago -- Team Rocket, Team Magma, Team Aqua, are all beginning to make their return, and embrace this new opportunity with the Puppets, and restart their plans for world domination. Your quest to find the Land of Illusions will be interrupted by Team Rocket, who seek to do the same. And as you do that, Team Magma and Team Aqua rise up from the depths of the earth and ocean, and begin to hatch a scheme to take all of Monsekai for themselves this time around. Will they be successful, or will they fall to the might of your team of Puppets?


Main Characters:
Spoiler:
Maribel Hearn

One of the two members of the Sealing Club. Maribel is able to see the boundries of all things. She uses this power to try and search for the Illusionary World, Gensokyo. Somehow, she ends up stumbling around in the Kanto region, alongside her friend, Renko Usami, and they both get attacked by a wild CChen near Pallet Town. Eventually, Red comes to their rescue. After spending the night, Maribel obtains a starter Touhoumon from Professor Oak. Maribel and Renko then go out on a quest across the Pokemon World, trying to learn stuff about the Puppets, and more info on Gensokyo. Maribel is one of the two playable characters.

Renko Usami

One of the two members of the Sealing Club. Renko is able to tell the exact position of her location by looking up at the moon. She uses this power to try and locate the Illusionary World, Gensokyo. Somehow, while traveling through Kanto with her friend, Maribel Han, they get attacked by a wild CChen. Red eventually comes to their aid and drives the CChen away. After spending the evening, Renko chooses a starting Puppet at Professor Oak's lab. Maribel and Renko then go out on a quest across the Pokemon World, trying to learn stuff about the Puppets, and more info on Gensokyo. Renko is one of the playable characters.


Features:
Touhoumon Faith & Prayer Version comes with numerous features both similar and different to Vanilla Pokemon. Some prominent examples are:
Spoiler:
  • Touhou characters, from Touhou 1 to Touhou 13.5, will all be obtainable within the game.
  • Pokemon will make appearances throughout the game, however limited. Very few Pokemon can be found in the wild. Others will be found by protective trainers, special in-game events, or the Southern Continent Pokemon Preservation.
  • Being able to visit regions from Gen III and downward (Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn), as well as the ability to traverse the Land of Illusions, Gensokyo.
  • The game runs the Touhoumon 1.8 Mechanics, which means a different type chart (Provided with the downloaded), as well as the Physical/Special Split on moves.
  • A Mystery Gift system, which can be accessed as soon as the first town, with already accessable gifts. To use Mystery Gift, you must go to a Pokemart and examine the piece of paper on the counter. This enables the Mystery Gift function.
  • There is a fully functioning Speed Button for the GBA-aholics here who enjoy their speed. To toggle the speed up, press the S button while there isn't a dialogue box of sorts on the screen. Preferably on the Overworld. This cannot be disabled unless you repeat in the same manner.
  • Game progression is less linear than Pokemon proper. It draws more heavily from the Gamecube games than the actual handheld games. The gym challenge is optional, and the Elite Four is not the End-All-Be-All of the game.
  • Since gym badges aren't required for game progression, the use of HMs is replaced with items that don't require badges. Examples of such: An Axe for Cut, a Lantern for Flash, a Pickaxe for Rock Smash.

- Related, the Pallet General Store is now properly set up! As you clear certain plot events across the game, the store gets a larger and much more diverse stock, and older products go down in price! Useful if you find yourself strapped for cash, or for some reason want to buy 300 Pokeballs for just 30,000 (100 per purchase) as opposed to 60,000 (200 per purchase)! (4/22/2015)

Those two blogs are where you can keep up-to-date on all the information regarding Faith & Prayer Version.

Something to address before the download link. This is relevant if you are updating from Demo 1 or 2. Demo 3 should be fine
Spoiler:

Quote:
I am going to say this now to get it out of the way: You will need to start a new game - there is no getting around it. I have edited something in the Intro phase of the game that will be required for a later segment of the game. It's not yet implemented, but a precautionary measure - better to have it now and force people to restart while we're in Demo 2 than we implement it in Demo 10 and force people to restart that late into the game. There are a few other things which may break if you don’t start a new game, so I will restate what I said: YOU WILL NEED TO START A NEW GAME - THERE IS NO GETTING AROUND IT.

Another thing I want to address is: Read the Readme included with the game! I'm not writing it for my own benefit, as I know what's going into the game. I write it to keep the user base informed on what was fixed from previous versions, as well as ways to get in contact with me if there are bugs. Heck, it's even broken up into Table of Contents so you can skip to the section you want without scrolling. It's for the convenience of you guys that I made the readme! Sometime after I release Demo 2, I got complaints about bugs and issues addressed in the readme - as a developer, the last thing I need to be is reminded about bugs I know exist when I'm the one informing you of their existence.

If you're updating from Demo 4 to Demo 5 or onward, please read this:
Spoiler:

Quote:
Demo 5 onward fixes the Black Void border around Kanto's exterior maps. Due to how I did it, maps are going to be shifted around a bit. To be sure you don't get stuck in a new area: PLEASE SAVE INSIDE A BUILDING BEFORE UPDATING BEYOND DEMO 4


Touhoumon Faith & Prayer Version Demo 6 - Mediafire Link
Touhoumon Faith & Prayer Version Demo 6 - Adf.ly Link - An Adf.ly link was included because, while I am in desperate need for money, I wouldn't feel entirely right forcing someone to sit through advertisements to download my game which isn't even entirely legal since I don't own Pokemon. You're free to use this link if you want to help fund me and my projects just a little bit.

Quick Patch Fixes:
The following links apply ONLY to Demo 6.
Spoiler:
Demo 6 has two rather inconvenient issues in them. The first of them is an RGSS104E.dll error, the second is a warping issue. This quick patch fixes both of them. Apply ONLY to Demo 6. Instructions on how to use them are provided in the folder. Other issues made themselves apparent after Quick Patch 1 was released, and Quick Patch 2 is now available down below.
Download Link for the Patches:

The rest are for legacy purposes, and will not work in later versions. The download links are set to private.
Spoiler:
It's come to my attention that Demo 5 has several bugs I wasn't aware of, probably due to my lack of testing of certain things. I apologize for this, I should have been more thorough with my checks. All I can do now is try to do better in the future and hope it doesn't happen again.
In the meanwhile, for Demo 5, there will be no new recompilations of the build. I've prepared quick patches that should fix the smaller, individual issues.

Download Link for the Game:
These patches fix the EXP Share not being obtainable, and fix the gatehouse on Route 7 linking into trees instead of Saffron City. The installation for these is simple, but easy to get wrong. All you need to do is extract the contents of EXP Share Fix and Route 7 Gatehouse Fix into the "(Game Folder)/Data" folder. I'd say do it in order of patch number, just to be safe, but I haven't really tested out what happens if you do the second patch first.


This demo picks up where Demo 4 and 5 left off, at New Bark Town, and goes into Johto Proper, taking you all the way to Route 32's end. Ruins of Alph is explorable, the east half of Route 36 is explorable. Dark Cave is not explorable.
I hope you all enjoy the game, just as much as I enjoy making it. I’ve hammered out a majority of the bugs that my testers have reported. If you find a bug or inconsistency, please contact me with where the bug is, so I can get on fixing it. The same goes for typos and grammatical errors. I've done my best to iron out as many kinks as I have for the public release.

Ah, forgive me for that. Since the process of submitting a thread for approval on Pokecommunity takes a few days, I didn't have time to edit the download link, which contains some bug fixes and the sort.
And yeah, there really isn't much done outside of the GBA Rom hack department. There were efforts to do a Duamond and Pearl hack, but it eventually fell through.

Could have swore I added that into the topic post. Ah well.
The current demo release goes up to Pewter City, ends after the First Gym battle. You are not allowed access onto Route 3 just yet.

Figured I should make a quick addendum to this thread, and the first post.
I post more frequently about updates to the game on my three blogs
Spoiler:
http://derxwnakapsyla.tumblr.com/ - General Purpose blog, but gets more information about the game updates
http://chaoticinfinitydev.tumblr.com/ - Specialized blog for ChaoticInfinity Development related projects, mostly used to post releases or important and critical information regarding future versions and releases.
http://chaoticinfinity.wordpress.com/ - Same as above, however used less frequently. Release posts go there as well as the Tumblr Blog.

Those three blogs are where you can keep up-to-date on all the information regarding Faith & Prayer Version.

Good luck on the game. I hope to see this thread get more activity and popularity soon. I loved Touhoumon hacks a long time ago, and it was probably one of the first times I've experienced 'custom' pokemon or 'fakemon.'

Thank you for the compliment. As for the bugs.
  1. Green's House, as well as a large majority of NPC houses, are all inaccessable. There is no interiors currently, and those will be done for the next version.
  2. Ah yes, I forgot to reenable that after I disabled it a while back to check something. I will go and reenable that right now, it'll be fixed in the next release. Thank you for pointing it out!

Haha, I dunno, if the thread becomes more active and popular, I may have a harder time keeping up with it! Touhoumon was one of the few Fakemon hacks I could say I enjoyed, mostly because of the dyanmic, and how there seemed to be a small community behind it, various hacks that were (almost) all different. Not to mention that Touhou is one of my favorite series.

Minor bump in the thread for a moment to link something.
The other day, someone asked me if I had compiled a locations text file. Unfortunately, at the time, I did not have that file. So I went and compiled one just now.

This link contains Locations.txt

It will be part of all future updates, and completely up to date with locations in the current release. If you don’t want to wait till the next update to get it, you can download it now.

Figured I'd make a quick update to the thread, even if there isn't that much activity, and this'll be triple posting.

Items that do the job of HMs are currently implemented into the game.

Here are screenshots showing off the currently working ones. I'll add them to the first post.

Quadposting? What is this! I'm not sure if it's against the rules is what it is, but I digress. I'm making a quick update to the thread to show that I'm not dead yet and neither is the project.

Demo 2 is trucking along at a decent pace. All the content in it is almost done. I have just a few more trainers that need to be placed, and the conclusion of Demo 2. After that, it’s bug testing. Demo 2 will go up to a bit past Vermilion City. There will be some noticeable changes, as well as some. new features and things which are from other games.

I’m going to aim to have Demo 2 out sometime before the end of May, and I’d hope to have it out before the end of April. To be honest, if I worked diligently enough for the remainder of today, I could finish off all the stuff needed and be in bug-test mode by nightfall, and presumably have the demo out by the 15th, but it’s unlikely that this’ll happen. But hey, if it does, that’s cool beans bro! Till the release, see you next time folks!

C-C-C-Combo Breaking your Quad posting!

I like this. It's good to see Touhoumon no longer restricted to emulation.

Loving every bit of ti just playing through it, my only query is, if Puppets came along and wiped out all wild pokemon, what happened to the ones caught by trainers?

thank you for stopping my post chain i was getting worried there for a moment

Anyways, The Puppets/Touhoumon didn't eradicate the Pokemon Species. While it doesn't happen in the game, within this incarnation of the Pokemon World, Pokemon and Puppets eventually end up existing side-by-side. As of present, a lot of them are in hiding, or at the Pokemon Preservation on the Kikoto continent (The Kikoto Continent is something I don't want to go into on here, so if you have further questions about concepts of the game like this, feel free to direct them at this link).
As for ones captured by trainers, a lot of them don't battle much with Pokemon anymore, mostly out of fear. There are some trainers that still do, however. I have it planned that, once you enter Johto in the game's plot, Pokemon start showing up more frequently. in fact, the first appearance of one is in the planned rival battle with Red, who uses his Pikachu, alongside a trained team of puppets.
I'll restate it, Pokemon were not "wiped out" by the puppets, merely driven into hiding.

Like I said on Tumblr, I have finished Demo 2 of Faith & Prayer Version and released it. There is a change log provided with the download, so I won't be posting it here. I'll be posting the download link in this post, and attaching it to the first post for easier downloading.
Touhoumon Faith & Prayer Version Demo 2

One more thing I will address:
While this isn’t a bug, i have not yet programmed NPCs into the Vermilion City houses, and there are some item balls across the game that are not able to be picked up. I have not yet programmed in the items, that will probably come in a stealth release or Demo 3.

Do you have the type chart for this?

Every touhoumon game use different type chart, that makes me confused.

edit: oh I got it. Sorry, will test the game out more.

anyway will you use the dex I can find here for this game?

http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Touhoudex_2

Finish this demo (up to power plant right?) and I noticed

- No evolution shard in the game up until now. At least not what I can pick up or buy. Or maybe I just don't know.
- Many items is there that you can't pick up at all (all items in power plant, the item on Route 25, and many more...)
- The house near the west entrance of diglett cave is just wrong, I can walk all over its tiles.

One old balance issue from every touhoumon game (okay... every touhoumon game so it's not really your game's problem): Choose Marisa as starter and you play the game in easy mode basically I'm joking. But you know... seriously.

I will stop here and wait for Demo 3. My team are: Chibi Marisa, Cirno, Momiji, all level 32.

Update on the progress of Faith & Prayer Version, November Edition.

All maps for Demo 3 are done, all tethering of warps and connections are done. I need to finish Wild Encounters. After that are generic and special NPCs. Generic Trainers come next, after that is the Rival Battle that'll be in Demo 3. After that is Plot-Relevant Events (Trainers, game progression, etc).
The game is not dead. I just got a new computer. I am back to working full time on it.

The support is appreciated, very much so.

As for status on the game, I've gone through a few computer changes, but I'm back on stable grounds and can play and bugtest properly. Unfortunately, I ran into a minor bump - nothing too severe, but it is a bit of a future setback: My text file which contained all my script files for future Essentials updates got corrupted and is likely impossible to recover. I do have two backups, but they are minorly outdated. I will have to, at some point, go through my script files and manually recompile the entire list. That shouldn't be until Essentials V14, though. For now, I can work with a dated scripts text file.

Game status is still the same as last time, though. I haven't added any new trainers since the last post here due to other priorities (Working on another game on another, entirely different engine and different genre), and I felt I deserved a break from working on this for a little while. Can't burn out all in one go, it'd be bad. Nevertheless, I'm ready to get back to work on the game. I'm hoping for a release sometime in February or March, but I wouldn't slate it for then.

I fail to see why this is not more popular.

Touhoumon is amazing, your version stands out so much, since it's not like the emulated versions, where it's just emerald or fire red with touhoumon instead of pokemon.

I played the demo again, and loved it even more that the first time.

Touhoumon as a whole is sort of a niche thing. It usually only targets a specific target audience - the target audience being both fans of Touhou and fans of Pokemon. If it hits anyone else outside that niche, it's not uncommon but it doesn't often happen. Surprisingly, Touhoumon was how I got into Touhou in the first place.

I do thank you for the complements, I'm trying my hardest to make this game be distinguished from the rest. I think I've done a farly good job at conveying the story I want to tell, as well as keeping the game both enjoyable to the player and balanced with as little grinding needed to get further.

Wow!
I have to say this game is fantastic!
I haven't made it very far, but I love everything so far!
It's been a very long time since I've enjoyed a fan-game as much as this!
I just love it, I enjoyed everything about it, and an interesting mechanic to mess around with as a player, trying to figure out what works and what doesnt, and also exploring an entirely new and different game, in a familiar setting.

I had a lot of fun playing it and will continue to play until I've gotten as far as I can, great work! and I just CAN'T believe this hasn't gotten more popular! It's a great game, more people should look into this

I hope you continue to enjoy the game, then! I have plans for it, even if they seem unrealistic I believe I can make them work really good. I really appreciate the complements, very much so.

I take it by "interesting mechanic", you mean the new type chart? That's the only new mechanics I can think of that would be a bit confusing to understand at first. What makes things moderately humorous was, until I had decided to do a mass addition to the type charts, there was a bug with how Essentials handled the Types (It would read the weaknesses/Strengths/Etc from the Displayed name, not the Internal Name like it should have -- or something along those lines).

I'd love if more people got into this game, heck even Touhoumon in general! It's one of many things that makes up my favorite part of the Touhou franchise - Fan Made Content. Touhoumon, unfortunately, has such a small appeal audience. it saddens me because, even without the Touhou background, it's still technically a "Fakemon" gane, which kind of throws it under the bus, despite how interesting some of them are.

I really hope I can make this game good, as much as I want it to live up to everyone's expectations, I want it to live up to my own, and be the best possible game I can make it out to be.

I saw there was a type chart, but I had a hint of nostalgia of trying out the game without looking at it, and learning as I go, much like i had when i played red/blue all those years ago

I really have not enjoyed myself playing fangames as much as I have playing this one, I havn't had the chance to play much else, but I'm looking forward to the rest of the demo, and the rest of your game as a whole! you have my full support for this!
