However, the patch file in the attachment is still a playable game, Project Spheal. It's a short game with a few puzzles and an (almost) impossible final boss fight. It should take around 30 minutes to complete, and I'm interested in reading your comments about this "different" kind of hack. Did you enjoy the puzzles? The random storyline? The final boss? Having Went as a Pokémon?

The screenshots are from Project Shinx, an unnamed hack I've been working on. Its features will be a more reasonable version of the features in this thread's first post. Project Shinx is currently recruiting skilled individuals in order to make one of the greatest hacks in PokéCommunity. The current team consists of me and Shinx (Manipulation), so if you're interested in helping in any way, just drop me a Visitor Message.

Pokémon: Chronicles of Soala


Introduction


Hi there! For those who don't know me, I used to be a moderator here a few years ago. I was also working on a hack, Pokémon Liquid Ocean, which won Hack of the Year back in 2006. After many times of restarting the hack, I decided to keep its thread closed and not post any updates until I it was finished, or at least almost finished, since there are still some new Pokémon and moves to be added, but these aren't as important, since the world and story are complete. After everyone thought I stopped working on Pokémon Liquid Ocean, there was an attempt at making a sequel, called Pokémon Soala Adventures. And so, since nothing is the same as in the previous alpha of Liquid Ocean, I decided to call this hack Pokémon: Chronicles of Soala. I'd like to dedicate this hack to everyone who supported me through all these years, you all know who you are, but I dedicate this especially to Spheal, my favourite Pokémon ever.

Features

  • 3 new regions
    Travel through two whole new regions, Soala and Osenia, and explore the Orange Archipelago! Collect all 20 badges, 8 from each region and 4 from the Orange Islands, and enter the Pokémon Championship!
  • Variety of different environments, including space and the past
    Travel through snowy mountains, underwater temples, tropical islands, volcanoes, swamps, jungles and more! You also get to travel to Space with one of the organizations you will encounter to investigate the recent sightings of Jirachi. With the help of the Chronos Tribe and Celebi's power, you also get to travel back in time, and discover the origins of the regions and their secrets.
  • 9 rivals
    Not just one, but 9 rivals to battle you along your way to be the best trainer there is! Some are new, and some are old, including Red, Crystal and Ritchie! The best part about this is that you are able to choose how to interact with each one, which means you can ignore/avoid/get rid of most of them should you choose to. However, you will be rewarded if you keep them all around by the end of the game, since every one of them is important in their own way.
  • Decision-based storyline
    In the game you will encounter several organizations, small, big, evil, good, each with its own dreams. After finding out about their goals and intentions, you get to choose which one to side with, or even two. You can even not side with any organization and oppose them all. The decisions you make will heavily affect the final part of the game and the ending.
  • Latest generation Pokémon
    Currently, there are only 673 Pokémon catchable in this game. the 649 from all 5 generations and 24 from Gen VI. I'm currently working on the sprites of the rest of the Gen IV Pokémon, and I'm hoping to release a new patch with all 719 Pokémon available soon!
  • New moves and abilities
    The majority the new moves and abilities of the newer games have been implemented. Some new ones have also been added as well. Just like with the Pokémon sprites, a patch with all moves and abilities so far will be released in the near future.
  • New music
    Almost all the tracks in this hack have been changed. Some are familiar tracks from the latest generations, some are completely new, thanks to Link and his team from Pokémon: Phoenix Rising.
  • Side quests
    Attend the Pokémon Ranger academy and become a Pokémon Ranger! Rangers can take on side quests to help people in need from all the regions. There are over 30 side quests of varying difficulty, some have special rewards and new characters involved. By completing them, you get Quest Points which can be redeemed for rare items.

You will find the Complete Beta 9.0 attached to this post. The reason it's still called Beta is because the Final release will include all 719 Pokémon and more moves and abilities. All 20 badges and storyline events are included in Beta 9.0. The patch file is quite big, but it should work with any IPS patcher.

Does this look like an Emerald hack to you? Also, pretty much every thread in this section has the ROM "base" in its title.

Omg, clearly his strong point isn't reading! But this hack looks really good so i'm playing it now. Unfortunately I must be having a massive blonde moment since I can't get past the intro part. I don't know what it wants me to do, I read the secretary note 50 times now :p

Edit: I mass clicked the last button and some how it opened up never mind!!

You have to click the buttons under the paintings in the order corresponding to the note.

Wow, nice job!
Not sure if I'm going to play this or not, but if I am to try out any pokemon hack anytime soon, it's gonna be this one.


Sounds like most (if not all the) things about this game should be well-designed and planned. Not sure what to think about the game involving 9 rivals in it although battling (and interacting with) them might be even totally optional. I mean, having so many rivals out there is strange, and the rivals might be totally generic people as well unless you have planned this out really well.

Well anyway, it's still a fangame and not like fangames would have to be extraordinary in every possible way (although I do like trying to make my own hack stand out that way as well).

But yeah... I persoanally see this hack being something else and I believe it stands out from the rest

This hack is really difficult and makes you think, well in the beginning since i'm not far into the game yet. A walk through is seriously needed :p. I'm stuck in this never ending forest. I'm not completely sure what to do either

You don't catch Spheal, Spheal catches you.

So once you defeat the ice goddess the game
saves and you're in hell...and that's it. I feel like this game is actually a massive troll.
