Pokemon Citrine

This is a Hack of

STORY
Team Rocket Members Attila and Hun have continued their chase of Raikou into the region of Citrine. They have decided to split up and have their own teams in order to take over the whole region and finaly capture Raikou. Meanwhile you are a kid in the small town of Frostvile whose dream is too follow in the footsteps of your family and become part of the Elite Four (your 2 brothers and your sister are current members). Your older brother helps you out (just like Steven did). Throughout the game you feat both Attila and Huns plans till after you visit the Volcano, Crystal Lake which awakens Entei and Suicune, then they have a battle in the final gyms town. You have to journey to the Sky Mountain and awaken Raikou to end this fued. But when all 3 cats meet a climactic battle ensues. One of your brothers and your sister come to help you by capturing Entei and Suicune, but it is up to you to silence Raikou before the citrine region suffers irreparable damages.


^Thats Hun(Left) and Attila(Right)^


FEATURES
Arg, Caution, thar be spoilers

Spoiler:

Snow Tiles

Forget the original routine of Pokemon Emerald, we are kinda going backwards on the west side of Hoenn.

I am going to try and edit the little animation at Sootopolis to feature Suicune(in place of Kyogre) and Entei (in place of Groudon) then Raikou will replace Rayquaza


Im not going to say all 386 pokemon are in here but, you start off w/ the ND and pokes from all 3 gen will be featured

Gyms will be in different towns (Dewfords gym was put in another town) But the gym types will be deferent than they were before(That also means diff gym leaders and diff Elite Four Trainers)

I am thinking about Flushing the Battle Frontier...but in its place will be somtin kool

Two New teams (Team Attila and Team Hun)

Thats it for now:D



TASKS
Just some stuff that comes to mind

Released the Alpha

Edit Cycling Road - Events up to the Volcano experiance(beta will have 2 gyms)
Release Beta 1
Edit Events after Volcano- 6th Gym and maybe some sidequests(Beta will end at Fortree)
Release Beta 2

Edit Events past Fortree - Finish the Elite Four
Release Beta 3

Tie up looses ends then i will make a final release

OTHER STUFF
(This is thr stuff i would like assistance with)
Find a person or program to feature the 3 cats or just Raikou in the Title Screen

Change the name to Pokemon Citrine on the Title Screen

Find a decent sprite editor and inserter

Find a program to change the pokemon sprites in the intro movie sequence

An advanced scripter(i can edit dialogue, sign posts, and make items and make NPCs give items, but i need help with the more advanced stuff)

Some one to make me some support banners please

Thats about it for now.




CURRENT STATUS

Well i finish the mapping for beta1. Yay!!! I am currently learning level scripting so that i can hopefully redo the gyms and such...after i redo the Gyms and gym leader and stuff i will move on to trainer editing, and then finaly the scripting. But right now i am taking a break waiting on some sprites...but in the meantime i may find a nice picture to edit make as the title screen. There is still much to do before i can finish and release.


VERSION HISTORY


Pre-Beta/Alpha (Released 6/29/08)

Beta 1
Beta 2
Beta 3 (possibly, not sure)
Final Release

SCREENS/SCANS/WHATEVER



Screenshots








These arent the final screens for the towns. They may change in the next beta!

KNOWN ODDITIES, BUGS, and GLITCHES
1. the red arrow at the end of each text bar, its glitchy but it doesnt effect gameplay
2. The scripts in snowbrink city, when you leave with wally and when the dude leads you over to the gym is in the wrong place
3. The place where the female gets off of the truck is in the wrong place
4.

TEAM
Me: planner, mapper, scripter
Cirothe: Spriter
Eveeon Wind~: Map Fixer Guy Dude


Beta Testers
Mabbiba
Eeveon Wind~


THANX
Dshayabusa (help with scripts & tiles)
PHO [rombase(Green Charizard might have made it)]
Mabibba (banners)

XTRAS
(basic info, news, stuff you can help me with, random)
Everything is going according to how i planned it. i have began learning scripting and am getting better at it, thought it isnt that hard(most people make it sound like its the hardest thing to do). OW mapping is going great i have some excellent ideas i plan to implement in the next beta, though i need someone to go in a fix some tiles that i cant(like the snow in Seabreeze town from the Gym and Mart tiles). I realy need some help with spriting, im not very good with art and color editing so i need some help in that area, plus i would like some help making attila and hun sprites out of the Maxie(since he is thin he will be Hun) and Archie(since he is bulkier than Maxie he will be Attila) sprites. Well tha covers the major areas of what i need help with.

If you want to help, post it here and i will see if i can use you. (i dont want to seem like those guys that are begging for help, but a little extra wouldnt hurt)

Wish me luck, Khaos

BANNERS
(Want to show support for Citrine, put em' in your sig)







DOWNLOADS
THE ALPHA IS HERE, it goes to the first gym.
(Hint: untill i get better at scripting i cant control what gym leaders and others say yet so even though your dad says go to Rustboro, instead go to Snowport...just follow the route numbers)
The RE-ALPHA is the most recent version!!!!

Yeah i didnt know this was approved yet...but i fixed the screens(i also noticed that Baro did the same thing in the Marble thread)

I noticed that i didnt fully check the movement permissions on some of the Mt. sides and in snowport city...i will try to upload a new fixed patch if it becomes a problem

All i can say now is...WHOO i made it in the Showcase...time for sleep

Hmmm, this hack could use a bit more work, sorry to say. You probably should have spent a bit more time practicing the basics (mapping and scripting). The story is good, but perhaps go a little slower with this hack and spend some time getting more experience with hacking.

Well the event with Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza won't be too hard to change. You only need to edit the OWs. If you want to change what happens then... most of it will be easy from what I remember its done all by scripting. The cinematic bit, well thats a different story. The intro cinematic can be edited with UNLZ. You just need to change all the animations.

Well I hope I haven't offended you or your hack, just wanted to say what I thought.

Looks good, except for the mapping errors (Seabreeze Town)
And the maps all look almost the same...

But I like the story, sounds cool.

Good Luck,
Bombah!

Ps.: They are the 3 DOGS, not cats...^^

I agree with dshayabusa. This hack could use a little work. I would put my hand up, but I don't know the first thing about hacking.

Can I suggest something?
On the map of Snowbrink City, there is a rock on the left side. It makes the water's edge and the jumping over ledge (or whatever you want to call it) look... weird. I personally think that rock is not needed and could be removed. However, you can move it a little if it is I suppose.
xP But then again, I'm just a newb to this.
I do love the story though. Raikou is one of my favorite pokemon, and I adored that movie.

I however, did make a banner for you... It isn't too good, but it is my first try.

I would give show it, but I'm not allowed to do so until I get 15 posts. -shrug- So I'll just PM it to you.

Good luck! I'll keep a watch on this hack.

Thank you i will try to improve the maps, and i read on bulba pedia that they are cats...Suicune is a cheetah and Entei is a lion and Raikou is a sabertooth tiger. To me they look like em...except for Suicune...he puzzles me

Thank you very much for the banner and your support

Ok since the maps in the Alpha were a little... unoriginal i updated them and releaesd a new alpha with some tile, MP, and other fixes. It has some maps redone, like Seabreeze town, i didnt like how it was so i redid it(sorta).

I also updated the Screens to match the RE-ALPHA

I know it may have been a mistake to Re-release but i was in such a rush to release the alpha i didnt thoroughly check it enough so it was kinda messy...

Well i hope you enjoy the new Alpha and show me some support by putting the banners in your sigs...BTW i have to give an awesome thank you to mabibba for making the banners anf hopefully making more

Thanks for all of your support, Khaos

I decided to give some updates and take some screens.







The beta will be released soon, i am having a few scripting problems but i will get them fixed. I am also looking for 2 or 3 beta testers so the next beta can go of without a problem. The beta will feature two gyms and the Volcano experiance.

Hi khaos here just dropping a quick update.

Uh, mapping for beta 1 is complete there are a few things i need to do but for the most part its finished.

i have become a little better at scripting, i can understand most of the commands now and can implement them. Plus i made my first working script

Check .gif attachment

I still need to do spriting, finish up some scripting, and release to some beta testers...


I ONLY HAVE ONE BETA TESTER, I WOULD LIKE 3, PLEASE PM ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

oh yeah, and i changed the main post so check that out every so often, and i decided to use 3 betas and then a final release so i hope you continue to support me in this project(i have seen little, and would really like to see more) I am also looking to win a HotW(i want to be the 1st Emerald Hack on the list) its just a little goal of mine :D

bye for now,Khaos

The Re-alpha is the most recent one but the both end at the same gym, the re-alpha was just released to fix some things(though there are still some errors)

please dont make an instant judgement when playing the alphas, Beta 1 will be so much better

Hmm, well i have started this game game countless times to test things and it has never reset on me i will look into it, BTW in the truck if you are a female you get off in the wrong place, but i fixed that in the beta. but remember you have patch it to a clean EMERALD rom

Yes i answered your PM, it seems i mght have overwrote some data some where or something but the way you fix it is to enter a building...i have noticed this behaviour in other hacks as well....

Thank you very much, i am looking forward to seeing them

Well i wanted snowtiles for the hack, and no Ruby's tiles dont strike me as the greatest, but i like them for this hack



And a word to those playing the hack, you have to play through the events of you going to help wally catch his pokemon, then you can go west on route 3(dont forget to get the GOODS :D)

Hi all i stopped by to post an update.

Its been real laid back, since i took a break, and now that i am bored i decided to make a title screen(attached)

Its not finished,i plan to maybe make a mountain like thing that raikou stands on and maybe change up the lightning. This is just a progress report of sorts

i made it using the thunder and thunderbolt attacks from wormintheworks attack sprite sheet i got from The Spriters Resource. and a raikou sprite from google

Now that is an awesome title screen.
It's a little similar too thex4's though, except it doesn't have a custom Rayquaza! XD
Maybe u shoould have a custom Raikou sprite on the title screen instead of a regular, game freak Raikou sprite.
