Hi everybody! This is a thread I am making for the game I made on RMXP using poccils starter kit. Since my old version of the game (which i never posted) got deleted somehow, I am trying to remake it bigger and better than ever. Enjoy!

Fixed. Continue to comment and vote in the poll.






The Setting:
The game takes place in the new region called Zentor. The Zentor region is divided by a large volcano named Mt. Deravan. The volcano has many entrances and can sometimes be a shortcut to new areas. Mt. Deravan has been extinct for many years so it's safe. Or so, people thought. There is one man who plans to reactivate the volcano using the powers of the legendary pokemon Heatran. So, where does Darkrai fit in to all this? You'll just have to wait and see...........

The Rise of Team Dark:
A long time ago, A man name Cassidy lived in a mansion Route 516. He was an inventor and one day, he invented a machine that could capture and control the legendary pokemon Darkrai. But the experiment went horribly wrong. Darkrai was too powerful. He destroyed the machine and sentanced Cassidy to the only thing worse than death, an eternal nightmare. Cassidy had a son named Landon. Landon inherited the mansion and once, when he was looking through some papers, he found the blueprints to Cassidy's machine. He gathered a group of people together to help him build a better, working version of the machine. And pretty soon Team Dark was formed.

Your Journey:
You start out in the small town of Newberry where you are given a task by the professor to investigate a rare pokemon sighting at Lake Malapa. He gives you your first pokemon to help you out. It turns out, there was no rare pokemon, but there is something else, or rather, somebody else. It's a man in a black suit who attacks you. When you beat him you have to go to your friends birthday party, who gets a pokemon for his birthday (which just happens to be the starter strong to your own). Anyways you have a battle with him and then the professor send you out on your journey's. You must now make your way to Vardon Town, where one of the professors assistants will greet you and show you some of the basics that you need to know along your journey. He tells you that the professor told him to tell you that you must go to Vividia City and challenge the gym leader. And that is the beginning of your adventure........






Spoiler:

Male Hero:





Female Hero:




Rival:




Professor Maple:




Landon:




Flora (Vividia Gym Leader):




Rainor (Dampwood Gym Leader):




Brett (Rockbeach Gym Leader):









- Gym battles and frontier battles

- Able to visit Hoenn after defeating the Elite Four

- Various moves can be used to access secret areas (by this i dont mean HMs though there will be HMs)

- Many other new areas that can be accessed after defeating the Elite Four

The Zentor Region:



Newberry Town: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/newberryscreen.png
Newberry Town is a small town in the southwest part of the Zentor region. It is where you and your friend live. It is also where you will recieve your first pokemon from Professor Maple. It has a lake named Lake Malapa which is small but will end up being a bigger part of the story than you thought.

Vardon Town:
http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/vardonscreen.png
Another small town that isn't very important to the story, though it is a nice break between Newberry Town and Vividia City.

Vividia City:
http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/vividiascreen.png
A bustling city that has some nice sights such as the broadcasting station, and the first gym you will face along your journey. The gym leader's name is Flora and she uses grass types. The city is near a cave which you will have to travel through to get to Dampwood City.

Dampwood City (not a full picture):
http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/dampwoodscreen.png
A city built over a large gulf. Dampwood consists of three small peices of land that lead to three differents parts of the region. Just north of Dampwood is the volcano Mt. Deravan where you will have to make many visits in order to finish the story.


Rockbeach City:
http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/Rockbeach.png
A large city with many landmarks such as the bike store, Team Dark's factory, and your first frontier battle. It also has a nice beach where you can challenge some of the beachgoers to a quick battle.

Route 501: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/501screen.png

Route 502: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/502screen.png

Route 503: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/503screen.png

Route 504: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/504screen.png






One interesting thing about this game is you meet up with Brendan from R/S/E a couple times. After you finish the elite four you may travel to the Hoenn Region with him and challenge the Hoenn Pokemon League. The following are some of the Hoenn maps redone for Pokemon Midnight.

Littleroot Town: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/littleroot.png

Oldale Town: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u298/vavalar/oldale.png

First Rival Battle:



Vardon Town/Route 502/Vividia City:

Second Rival Battle:

(up to the 3rd gym / Team Dark Factory)

http://rapidshare.com/files/22025132...dnightV0.3.exe (look, it really works now! i said it before but im telling the truth now!)






I know my game isnt very big yet (meaning on pc) but I just have the audacity to put these here. If you support my game put one of these nice little userbars in your signature and make CDrew a happy spaz.










Well that just about wraps it up. More updates coming soon.

To take screenshots (if your using windows)- press and hold the "Alt" key then press "print screen" while the game window is active.
Open up Paint and right click on the blank image, click paste. Then save the image (as PNG as it's clear and small in file size). That will get rid of the need for hypercam just for screenshots.

@xelios - most of the bluriness and dullness comes from hypercam. in the future i will use Alt + Prnt Scrn to take pictures

@blueguy-some of the music is original and the male character is too (and of course the story and maps). im working on making more custom stuff (such as a female main character) but for now im just using this.

I would at least make your own tiles; using Kyledove's tiles exclusively will just lead to accusations of unoriginality. Other than the way overused tiles, it's not too bad actually. Although there isn't really anything that could be deemed 'unique' (such as new Pokémon or features not in any other game).

I've been working on using more tiles that are not kyledove's. Although there are still a lot that are. I am going to redo the whole thread soon with better screens and maybe videos. And maybe later a demo up to the second gym?

EDIT: I replaced the screenshots. at+prntscrn wouldn't work but I found another program. I also put in some full area pics of some of the finished maps. as for the videos and demo, they will take me a little while to replace. but at least i'm making progress. As for some unique features. I am thinking about having a battle frontier along with the gyms. and a battle tower for when you beat all the frontier brains along with the elite four for gym leaders.

Seems like you did quite a bit of work on this. I almost completly disagree, with blueguy. The tiles are new, the overworlds of the main characters are new (except that the female was just a recolored FR/LG OW) and there's new maps and a new story. Good work.

@gubgub - i'm more focused on actually making the game rather than making vids of it. Maybe when I have a litte free time I will.

@Beedrill Lover - I've considered it. I do make games other than pokemon. I just havn't ever posted them.

UPDATE:

I posted a demo up to the Team Dark Factory. It should work without problems but if you find one please report it.

What will come in the next demo:

I will not release the next version of the demo for a while. I am aiming to make it at least up to the 5th or 6th gym before releasing the next version.

We ( ok...atleast, I) don't need eyecatching backgrounds to keep ourselves interested... Just sure, confident, frequent (maybe,mini) updates would do (Maybe sum screenshots of the new areas would help too...!!!)..
