The rom hack is very good and It's like a combination of Fire Red and Emerald. Are there anymore updates?

Hey everyone. I think it's time to say that beta 1 is near completion. All I need to do is fix up some text and things like that. All of the events are finished.

Now, there's something that held me back a little. I decided to completely scrap Azure City's gym and relocate the 1st gym to another location. With that, I also changed the gym's type too along with a completely new leader. I had to completely redo the 1st gym but it was really fun and I feel that it's way better than the former first gym. So here are some screens, enjoy.

Spoiler:


Sprite was made by me.

I may not know much about spriting but that's a darn good sprite!
After all this time, you still have me eager to play that beta. Hopefully it'll be out before I go on vacation. How long is the beta (in terms of gyms)?

Are you going to add the Hero/Heroine/Gym Leader OW's? If so, I am really looking forward to play this awesome Hack!

The gym leader OWs are in but the hero and heroine OWs are not a priority for me at the moment. :x

Seems like a very simple hack. Let me know when beta is out or if you need a tester. Other then that, it seems pretty nice.

I just said that I'm not focusing on overworlds at the moment. :s

Anyway, everything is almost finished. I'm not a fan of giving out relase dates but I'm pretty confident that I'll be finished soon. The first beta for Azure Horizons will be out July 20, 2009 today!!

Hmm... I really hope you can make that release date, as I'm sure I'm not the first to say that this is my favourite hack on PC. Everything about this hack is just perfect, if you are need for help I would love to help you. :D

I like the new hero overworld, and it's nice to see that you edited the frame which plays when you use an HM.
By the way, there are some tile errors on the mountain in the south-west corner of the screenshot that is in your signature. I'll be sure to report any others I see while playing the beta as well ;)

I really like the screen shots; makes me eager for the first beta to be released. Seems to me that you put a lot of effort into this. Can't wait for more updates.

Wow, the new hero overworld sprite is quite nice! This is one of the first hacks in which I am fine with the spriting style that you've chosen to implement. This looks like it'll be quite an enjoyable hack to play, and I simply can't wait to play it. Very good job, again. :D

Wow!

It looks like an official Pokemon game by Nintendo.
Good luck!

Alright everyone, good news. I was really bored and decided to stay up a little and finish up eveything and I did. So, I'm happy to say that after all this time beta 1 is now complete! All I need to do is create a patch and do some other things. The patch will be released later today... I'm really excited to release this.

Awesome! I can't wait for the beta. I like the similarities to Emerald and DPP. By the way Azure Horizons is one of the best rom hack names I've seen for a rom hack ever.

This is one of the only hacks I'm really interested in playing. I downloaded the beta and all I can say is, "wow". Azure Horizons does not disappoint.

While playing, I found a few errors:


You can walk on the flower pot in the player's room.


Some movement permissions are missing in the player's house.


It's possible to avoid the grassy patch there by walking through the ledge.


The player is blocked to his right. The wrong movement permission is used.


As you can see, Gordian Town is highlighted. While looking at the Town Map in Gordian town, the player appears on the far right side of the map.

Alright, thanks.
I know about the world map error, it still has the position data of Kanto's world map. I'll get to changing that later on.

The movement position errors have been fixed. If you've already downloaded the game, download the new file on the first page and patch it to your rom to fix the errors.

Edit: Problem with the 2 Water Pulse TMs resolved, movement errors fixed.

Well done, this is a very well done hack. The events are all well done, and I haven't found a single error (a part from the map). The custom OWs look great and the gameplay is smooth. And it does look very professional.
Rating this I give it a 9.5/10.
- 0.5 point for similarities to FR/LG. (Mainly at the start)
Fun

Thanks, I'm really happy that you guys enjoyed the beta.

I'll try to keep the "professionalism" consistent throughout the entire game.

Pretty good But if you go out of the lab with your first PKMN go in again The profs. name is oak. That should be fixed. A backsprite for the hero should also be made. If you don't know how you gotta use tile molester

If you read the readme in the file you would've seen those things adressed. I already know about them. :/

Edit: I've been working on areas that are later on in the game, just thought I'd share some screenshots with you guys.
