Hi guys, I'm just wondering what hacks can I play in GBA that are already complete. Many of the hacks that I'm interested to play are still not finished. Any suggestions?

I'm in the very same boat as you, I try to find interesting hacks, but, the really good ones are either discontinued or haven't got a release date yet, or I have finished the current Beta.

Not GBA but Pokémon Brown is the best complete hack of all-time.

I'd say the very first Ruby Destiny hack. Reign of Legends.

That or Flora Sky.

Ruby Destiny Series, but I suggest you try Life of Guardians. Difficulty is great, the story and music as well. When it comes to graphics and more. Maybe Light Platinum or Flora Sky, either way. Life of Guardians have the best game play that I had

If we're talking Ruby Destiny, I say start with Reign of Legends and go forward; it's pretty interesting to watch as DJG's hacking abilities have grown overtime.

Oh, and Rescue Rangers is so much fun. Probably had the most fun playing any when hack playing that.

I enjoy Light Platinum and Glazed for their story plot and have amazing effects also glazed can be quite a challenge. Try them out and hopefully you will like them

I am playing Liquid Crystal and its really cool. If you are a fan of Ash Ketchum and want to try old charm of Indigo League (Kanto region), go for AshGrey.

I know of Victory Fire which in my opinion is poor design, and Dark Rising which I've beaten already. Are there any others?

I wouldn't know, but I would like to ask why you're hunting for them. A Dragon type starter is quite impractical because you wouldn't be able to train it at all, and it would be too strong for the early game if you don't nerf it. Note that most games don't have Ice-types early on either, so it's basically a cruise for you. If you want, you could make a hack yourself on it.

Victory Fire was actually too easy.

Dark Rising had scaling difficulty that ended up becoming pretty ridiculous, but still fun all the same.

...You know, nothing against DRG, and I've never played the game myself, but...I don't know if I'd call massive amounts of overleveled enemies and level spikes "fun". I mean, to each his own, but I'm on the same boat as Hoenn. I just can't see why you're looking for a game with Dragon starter.

Simply for fun and as a model if I can create a ROM hack of my own some day.

I won't go the DRG/Victory Fire route, though. I'll see if I can make the difficulty near perfect.

I've seen someone battle the Champion on a YT video, ♥♥♥♥ me that ♥♥♥♥ is hard. He keeps trying to stall out your PP with constant Hyper Potions and withdrawals.

It's ridiculous.
