Well, welcome to round two of Hack of the Year! Here you will choose which hacks progress to the final stage, the judging process. Read on for more information.

Eligible Hacks

  • Pokémon Eruption
  • Pokémon Azure Horizons
  • Pokémon Dark Cry: Legend of Giratina

Rules & Guidelines

  • You may not vote for your own hack.
  • You may not vote based upon the author's personal record or progress; only the hack is being evaluated.
  • Any posts that are nominations or do not follow the rules will be deleted.
  • Make sure that you have tried as many hacks as possible before you vote.
  • Posts can be made, but votes are only counted from the poll.
  • Voting lasts from 17/11/09 9PM GMT to 24/11/09 9PM GMT.

How to Vote

Well, it’s pretty simple. There are five hacks in the poll; you get to vote three times. Choose your three favourite hacks. This time next week, the three hacks with the most votes progress to the judging stage.

Eruption for the scripts and mapping as well as originality which I really enjoyed in the beta. Azure Horizons for the expert mapping, great scripting and all done with original tiles etc. rather than relying on some visual aspects of new tiles and such. Lastely I voted for Dark Cry, it's one of the most graphically appealing hacks out there as well as the fact that the story looks very engaging. It's looking to be a great hack. For those I reasons I chose those three.

Is it possible to give Azure Horizons all three of my votes?

I voted for Azure Horizons, Eruption, and Light Platinum.
I really hope Azure Horizons does better than it did in HotM. It saddened me to see such a great hack lose so many times.

I've got Azure Horizons and Ruby Destiny down for sure but my third vote is up in the air. Dark Cry looks promising but I haven't played it. Eruption was OK but nothing too special. And Light Platinum also looks appealing but I haven't played much of it. Eh, I guess I'll postpone voting for a few days.

I voted for Azure Horizons, Life of Guardians and Dark Cry. Light Platinum just has too many problems and I don't understand what the big deal about Eruption is.

I think Azure Horizons is the best by a large margin (even though there are a few hacks that deserve to win more). Life of Guardians deserves a chance because its the most unique (though it doesn't have much else to offer) and Dark Cry just because its better than Light Platinum.

Pokemon eruption is a go-go for me, for best scripting ever viewed, and also a vote for an overall amazing hack goes to Ruby Destiny: LoG.

I voted for...
Life of Guardians,
Azure Horizons,
and Dark Cry.

Out of all of the possible hacks, that I could have voted for, I enjoyed LoG the most,with Azure Horizons as a close second. As for Dark cry, I think the screenies alone are enough to make me vote for it. All of the hacks I voted for deserve to win, but i want LoG to go all-the-way.

Hurray for favouritism !!! :J

Life of Guardians. One period after that.

I will not assist in eliminating Jagold's chance of HotY. I really was angry with what happened in Rescue Rangers.
