Engine: Pokémon Essentials
Game developed by Peaverin

Introduction:
Well... I started this project like three months ago, but with other engine. Then I left it and one month ago decided to start again, but with Pokémon Essentials. I'm trying to work hard, but I don't have much time. Anyway, I think I'm gonna finnish it, or at least present a 2h demo.

Plot:
In your adventure throught the new Zarkhram Region, you have to find out what is the origin of the strange events that are happening around the region. You'll discover that Giovanni, the Team Rocket's leader is preparing again a plan to chase Mewtwo (like in the film). You try to stop it while you challenge the gym leaders to get acces to the Zarkhram's Tournament.
But you're not sure of what Giovanni's plans are, and you're not sure if he's planning to caught other legendary Pokémon.
In your adventure, you'll face many legendary Pokémon and you'll discover new exciting areas, while facing very interesting and sometimes hard challenges.
I'm not writting a long plot because I want the player to discover the story by himself, and I don't want to spoil any revelant information about the game.

Features:
-A new Region: Zarkhram
-Fight against Team Rocket, like in old times, and try to unlock the acces to the secret team rocket bases.
-Receive the help of Mew at certain points of the game
-Get together with your friend Viktor and explore some exclusive double battle zones.
-Some new forms of Mewtwo, like the Mega Mewtwo or the armored Mewtwo.
-A lots of scenes so you'll live the game!

Progress Report:
At the moment the game duration is about 45min or more if you want to explore and catch the pokémon of some accesable zones.

Beta Demo:
This beta demo is only available for the Pokécommunity Members!
Keep in mind that this is only a very early beta (about 50min duration).
http://www.mediafire.com/download/94..._Installer.exe
Password: beta1xd
Note: If you have some problems while catching some Pokémon, report them please. Note also that it may spend some time loading when you heal your pokémon, start a fight or catch a Pokémon every first time you open the game (when you open the game, the first time it spends some time loading, but then it doesn't spend more time loading, this happens every time you open the game).

Known Bugs:
There are more bugs that have been fixed and don't appear on the list. They'll appear fixed on the next release.
Code:
-In some computers, the game crashes while trying to catch certain Pokémon. This is maybe because of the use of any engine to speed up the game. If you don't speed up the game speed, you shouldn't have any problems.

I visited your website (which looks nice by the way), and noticed that you're accepting donations. I would highly advise taking that down, since the chances of Nintendo swooping in to cancel your project increase exponentially when money is involved.

I can't edit the page at the moment but I'll quit donations when I officially release the game for downlaod at the page.

It looks like you're using my location window script and have not credited me for it.
Looking over the thread, there's not much here that really gives that wow factor where the user wants to play the game because it is an original concept of it's own. I feel as if it's just like any other fan game out there. What I'd like to know is what are you doing that makes it different to others out there?
- New systems?
- New graphics style?
- A storyline that will submerse the player into the game?

Just a few questions I'd like to know.

Oh, sorry, I have to add you to the credits list...
Well... No new systems at the moment, and no new graphics style, but I'm working hard with the events in order to create nice escenes.
I'm sure your game is probably better than mine, but I'm working alone (with the help of PokéCommunity, but I don't know anything about graphism so I can not do anything with that, and the same with scripting), and I'm not creating my game with the purpose of being the best fan made game, I'm just creating it because I have fun and I learn things, and I want people to enjoy the game.
I'm sure if you play this game you'll have fun, like, as you said, any other fan game out there.
Anyways you should play the demo and then you'll know if it's a good game or a bad game.

Hey,
finished the beta was pretty fun.Liked most things. The intro was good.The starter where awesome. The graphics are everall good and the starter village gives this nice friendly feeling "We love pokemon".

Here some bugs or annoying things(since some things would be spoiler):
Spoiler:
-the pokedex got entrys from the forest before I got it even got dragonite from the intro
-My game crashed several times when I tried to catsh some pokemon like : Pikachu,Murkrow and I think one or two more but cant remember
-a tree is in the way of the forest entrys I can go around it but its just in the way
-the pokemoncenter UI looks a bit weird and the table from joy is just too big
-game once froze when A first entered the cave to follow me he just didnt speak so needed to restart

PS. Are there pokemon which need trade for evolution with an alternative like lvl or stone?

There will be the alexander's online system in the future, so you'll be able to change Pokémon with other players.
Some questions about the bugs:
Spoiler:

-I'll ask in the forum for how to reset the Pokédex to 0 before allowing the player to acces its menu.
-When you say that game freeze once A first entered the cave to follow you, you mean when he's here?: http://i.imgur.com/VLrmqpS.png?1. If yes, I know the bug. I'll fix it in the next release, but until then, you have to make sure you DON'T press enter while being in front of the little rock that is at the nort just before the event when A enters.
-Are those the "trees in the way"?:http://i.imgur.com/yirzSqU.png?1
If yes, it's the normal mapping and it isn't a bug. I wasn't able to put connections instead of that because they were some problems with the fog and tone.
-Catching Pokémon: I don't know why, but the first time you catch a Pokémon every time that you open the game, it spends a lot of time loading, but it hasn't never crashed for me, so I don't know how to fix this. I'll ask for help. Ah, by the way, the game just crashes or does it show any message? If it shows any message, tell me so I will be able to fix it.

well heres the answer to your questens:
Spoiler:
-yes happened that way tried the scene two times after the crash the Enter was probably the case
-and No I mean at the entrace to the forest the shaded area there is are light green trees and one is in the way so you can only go one way
-hmm the last time I saw it it was about some script thing cant remember and could be caused by me speeding it up with cheat engine with the speed hack(the fan games are just too slow for me I do it with every fan game but I dont use any cheat)
-and again about the pokemoncenter right now I have 4 pokemon in my team and when the healing glow comes a fifth transparent pokeball appears only when it lighens up. I had 5 pokemon in my team before maybe that caused it

Okay, the answers:
Spoiler:

-The light tree blocking the way is because when you team up with viktor, if there wasn't that tree you could pass without teaming up with him. There's a way to make it without the need of that three, but it would take me so much time.
-The catch bug is probably because of the speed up. By the way i've been trying to add a speed up that activates by pressing control, but I just want to implement it on battles because in my opinion, speeding up some things like the scenes isn't good because you don't get the plot at all, or you don't feel like if you were the player. I'll try to include a speeding up option in battles.
-Fixed the Pkmn Center Bug, It will be fixed in the next release, as the other bugs. It was just a graphics fail.

Thank you again, flagge. I'll add you to the credit list as a bugs reporter.
