You might all remember my old hack pokemon dark cry, the hack that has been stolen by japanese people.
But dark cry will come back and well today! this isn’t just pokemon dark cry.
This... is...



A new world to explore:
This... is.... the... trion region


**Hack of** Pokémon Fire Red (U)
**Language** English



**Fan made boxart!**
Spoiler:


-Do not spam!
-Don’t post crap like bugs that already has been told (report)
-don’t ask for beta’s/alpha's!


Hello my name is mitchel1 (does it ring a bell? :P) the creator of pokemon thunder emblem. This time I’ll bring up my oldest hack ever: Pokemon Dark cry. With better scripts, maps and events then Thunder Emblem! I’ll also say i’ll not bring a update every day, because I’m bussy with school, girlfriend and live, like the most people here ^^ that was the introduction.


You woke up and you realised that you were lying in a cave, and you saw everything black and white. Nobody heard you saying. But, you saw two people, standing by a dark altar. On the altar was sort of plate lying, kinda strange. The two people by the altar were talking about a "Shadow Plate". You were trying to attack them with your pokémon, but your pokémons weren't with you, and also, you couldn't scream. Then, you saw a persoon walking with an emblem of an "R" on his shirt. You're trying to stop him, but he walks right trough you.
You saw the person doing a strange ritual, and then, there was a big, big earthquake and a giant shadow was coming to you.

You woke up and realised it was all a dream. You walked out your bed, and looked at the clock, you saw it’s already ... AM, you went to late for picking up you first pokemon. Later you realised that your dream is comming true!

BOLD: Still need to be resolved!
Line: Has been resolved!
Green: I never could resolve!

Bugs: (so far)
: When you're playing solana. her pallet change when you're enter prof. rowans lab. (when script starts)
: Battleground animation is not correct in first look. If you encounter a wild pokemon it's first turn black and after that the new BG will apear. (Only Grass and trainer battle has still the wrong animation)
: When you've cut a tree with aerial ace and enter a house the tree has suddenly grow back.
: When the multi choose box appear there is standing ''Helix Fossil and Old Amber'' still need to find out how to fix it.
: reflection of hero in water has not the correct pallet...
: The intro Hero, heroine and the rival sprite has still the old version, I'm not able to change them, because they has been repointed at an unkown place.
: The song that plays at atlernion city will end after 1:03 minutes (without speed). It'll restart when you re-enter the city.
: Solana has in the intro sprite brown/orange hair.


Minor bugs: (Don't have that much impact)
: When prof. Rowan call up the nidoran [F] in the intro. The POKéBALL ''floats'' left of him.
: There are a few minor grammar errors
: Some words just disappear right of the textbox when your name is longer then 5 words. (Text adjuster made the \n and \p and that cause troubles with the [PLAYER] and the [RIVAL] name)


Progress alpha 1.0 release.
Alpha 1.0 will get canceled and will not be for publiek test!

Progress "publiek" alpha 2.5:
The maps: 80,5%
The scripts: 20,5%
The graphics: 92%
Overall: 35,6%

Remember! My english is not that good. I’m dutch, not GERMAN like most people think! xD

Heres a PM from Mac;
Hey ¦Next Pro I just want to tell you that I don't hate you.
I just get pissed when you call me a n00b when I can script better than you.
Jesse and Jake (Disturbed) Only hate you because you act like your better than all of us.
Just read it and think.


Lol thinks he can script better than I.
And I have never acted like im better than you, if i let people see my VM's
Then you would see all the times you called me N00b. Im just getting you back, N00b.

Disturbed is a n00b, and Jesse.. Well STFU if you think that.

Hey, looks very nice! Great graphics, of course, and interesting plot.

Though now I'm curious... how was the original Dark Cry "stolen by Japanese people"?

They were Pirates. They put his game onto a game cart and made money off it.
Thats the price of fame. Zel has the same problem, they sold his SHiny Gold on fake gamecarts.

And Mitchel I've finished the textbox after chrashing the rom about 6000000 times, so when your online I'll send it.
