I played this game,and when I get my starter after the glitch talking like 3 million times, she's blocking the stairway.I couldn't continue the game,and you can't talk to the professor.
So yeah.
And yeah, my friend hacked it. His DS got drenched in Orange Juice and he cant use it anymore.I put my Feraligatr up here to share the memory of my friends R4 and his SS that he's not really ever going to get a Chance to use again.EDIT: Oh wait, it started working again .
My first ever event pokemon. I screamed like a little girl when I went on the Mystery Gift and actually got results.
pretty much explains how I felt. I know a bunch of people that have better Events than me like the Lv. 100 Arceus or Celebi etc.
but it's still my first event and it has a special place in my heart.

No update in a long while, in fact maybe the longest ever, but hopefully it was worth it!

First up, these amazingly brilliant sprite revamps by blazeknight-94 of the first three baby Pokémon. The last two are one Pokémon, which look different by gender. And for those who don't know, here's a description of the baby 'mon feature:
Once you defeat a gym leader, you will receive a hint to the where abouts of a baby Pokémon. To get the 'mon you'll have to try and figure out what the hint meant. Maybe a riddle.

They're really good in my opinion, so what do you think?

Second part of the update, from the yet to be revealed route 3! Sadly, there's a way to access this route in the demo which shouldn't be there, so you may already have seen it xD Anyway, this route will be available in v2.0 of the demo. These screens also demonstrate the new resolution which XENOTIME will be using, it's basically just the same as before, but 16:9. This'll allow the game to be played in full screen on 16:9 monitors. And doesn't he look cute in his little umbrella?

Just a small preview of the brand new menu system which will be available in v2.0 of the demo. It's designed for ease of use, with all of the controls in generally the same space on all of the different parts of the menu. The X button acts like a kind of home button, bringing you back to the menu. The colour will change on different parts but the overall art style will be the same. What do you think of both the UI and GUI?

In version 3.0 of the demo, I'm hoping for the game to be 100% mouse controlled. From the menus, to the walking around, it'll all be controlled with the mouse. Hopefully the image above pretty much explains itself. but this is a concept I've created for moving around with the mouse, instead of the usual keyboard setup. I'd really like feedback on this, so feel free to post and/or V/PM me about it.
And just so you know, I'd like to keep this system an exclusive feature in XENOTIME, so please don't use it.

As you'll most likely know if you've been following the thread, I was planning on releasing regular new betas up to version 1.0 of the demo. But I've now decided to not do that. Instead, v1.0 is going to be skipped all together, and it'll go all the way to v2.0 instead. This'll include new features such as the menu above, the new 16:9 resolution, and all of the gym leaders. I can't put a firm release date on the demo, but if anyone is willing to help with scripting the new menu, it'll really speed things up.

@shadowtogepi: Yep, better late than never xD Tell me what you think, apart from the errors.

@aquadan: Thanks.

@Ruler Arceus: Yeah, sorry for those. There is a way to avoid them, but I'm not quite sure how now...

@flamemaster: Thank you or the bug report. I actually didn't know about a couple of those so it was very helpful.

Demo Beta out Now!

First of all, in the lab the prof. repeats himself in the end.
Battle system is bugged, and you can't see rivals head.
If you die from the rivals battle when you walk outside of your home you see the message appear straight away that he wants to fight you, but theres no rival overworld there.. hmmmmm.
When you die from a wildlife pokemon, you pay it money????? why would a wild pokemon want money.
If you walk back into the lab you will see him talking again and you cant get rid of it ahhhh now i have to start all over ..
The sound to go into a pokemon center is wrong... its not ment to be a door opening.
In the room with the dude thats playing the computer and says stop distracting, you can walk ontop of the bench with the pokeball in it
DAMM, restart again, when you walk out of the house with that dude in it, you get stuck and have to restart the game

In the first forest route, you cant encounter anything in the grass nor does it move.

Tree walk through error.
@pip, your stair bug isn't a bug when you go down your clicking right arrow and its the same arrow to go up so if you hold it down you will end up in the same room, no bug, i had problem to.

Thats all for today!
Maybe he lost the Switches/Variables.

No information yet.

I like the look of the latest screen-shots! The fakemon look really top-notch. My only comment would be that in the preview shot of the new menu, the text is a little difficult to see with the colour/pattern of the background. I'd suggest making all the fonts white & darken the blue at the bottom or make the transparent black boxes less transparent.

Wow, in terms of story this has got to be the bleakest Pokemon game I have played:

-Rather than starting a grand adventure, your mother kicks you out of the house. ("Get out.")
-Your neighbours are either living below the poverty line or in jail.
-The Poke-Professor hates kids, and would deny you one of her hard-earned starters. Thankfully, "rules are rules".
-The citizens of your home town are either miserable ("I'm going bald!") or terrified of pokemon ("eek, Kinglers!").
-The greatest pokemon scientists have given up on the world, and are planning a hostile takeover! Team Professor, anyone?

There are some wonderful ideas in this game. I would recommend downloading this game for the music alone. Also, I have to give a thumbs up to the interactivity sprinkled around your house: every household appliance and piece of furniture sparks some commentary, whether it's washing your hands at the sink, observing your mom's cold coffee, or glancing into the empty fridge. I especially liked the bookshelves for the addition of Tolstoy and your mother's selection of Pokemon Cook Books!

At the same time, the numerous glitches really detract from the experience (or kill it, in some cases). I made it as far as Larcoon City in my run.

-if you walk past the "enter" tiles in Larcoon's lab and then exit, you can walk out of Aurora Town without acquiring a starter.
-you cannot access your PC from Aurora Town. Ergo, you cannot get a potion to help you out against Rich's Growlithe.*
-there is no way to heal your pokemon in Aurora Town. After your first rival battle, you're stuck with a wounded pokemon until the next town.*
-you can walk over the flooded area of the second town.
-the TM Thief's house: first, the mom will give you infinite copies of the TM. Second, if you try to exit by the front door, your character will become stuck and you'll need to restart.

* If these 'no healing' situations are intentional design decisions - either as a handicap or to illustrate how unhelpful your mother is by refusing to heal your 'mons - then you need to communicate this to the player via in-game dialogue.

Story/Writing Comments:
-in the opening text, Oak tells you to address him as the Poke-Professor and never offers his proper name. A little rude, no?
-is Rich really Oak's grandson? I'm tempted to assume that line is standard text generated by a game-making program since the "grandson rival" scenario has been done to death in G1. Maybe some dialogue about how Rich's mother moved her family away from Pallet could be included?
-Your Mother's dialogue makes her sound very cold ("get out.") Is this the effect you intended?
-Professor Larcoon. Larcoon City. Is the naming scheme intentional, or is this an oversight?

-I like the concept of a conspiracy among the Pokemon Professors to conquer the world, but it feels like you've tipped your hand a little too soon:
1) The appeal of mystery is lost.
If I know right from the beginning that Larcoon wants to rule the world, where's the fun of following the story to discover her hidden intentions?

Let me give you an example: in Ruby/Sapphire, Team Magam/Aqua start off as minor annoyances; the extent of their villainy is robbing a Devon employee ("My Goods!") and overcrowding the Slateport Museum. They seem to be fixated on advanced technology, but why, and for what purpose? As the story progresses, they become increasingly fanatical: they kidnap Prof. Cozmo; they try to blow up an active volcano; they steal magical artifacts from Mt. Pyre and finally - at the height of insanity - they awaken ancient pokemon gods with the power to control the weather. Each time you meet the team, they try something more ambitious and more evil. At the same time, you never discover their endgame (waking Groudon/Kyogre) until the climax.

Pokemon Xenotime includes some suspense as to Prof. Birch's stance (will he join Oak or Larcoon's faction?), but otherwise Larcoon's intentions are declared loud and clear, and it doesn't feel like there's anything exciting to discover.

2) It's too early in the story to consider saving the world.
I know that 10-year old kids can do amazing things in the Pokemon world, but you've just started your journey and have one (1) level 5 pokemon. Seriously, what are you expected to do to fight an evil Lugia? Arceus help you if you chose Bulbasaur!

My recommendation: scale back the conflict in the early game. Establish that there's a rift between the Poke-Professors and that they've split into Oak vs Larcoon factions. At the same time, keep us in the dark as to what they are fighting over. Give hints that they disagree about how to deal with Lugia, but keep Larcoon's world-dominating intentions for the bird a secret. If you're feeling ambitious, portray Oak as a "loose cannon" among the Profs and make the player suspicious of his intentions!

I think you have a great story concept, and I like the characterization of Professor Larcoon - from her dialogue, it's clear she's a miserable grouch. I'd be interested to learn why Elm and Rowan - seemingly pleasant chaps - have become so disillusioned with the world that they'd side with her.

It's quite simple playing these games you just run the game.exe and follow in what ever direction the story and maps take you.

It either doesn't let me talk to the professor, repeats the same dialogue repeatedly without stopping, or just glitches out. Help.

I just took a look at the front page... So i hope that sums up what the game looks like haha.

The tiles and maps look pretty slick, no complaints there at all...
The gyms kinda bother me.
I like the idea of you doing different themes for each one, especially the rock one.
I think it would look better if you took it a step further and actually created a completely original building haha.
But, i know that's quite a bit of work, so I wouldn't worry to much about what i have to say XD

I love the fakemon idea, of the pre evo's of scyther onix and pinsir (i was gonna do the same thing for the bugs, but include heracross haha)
But yeah, i love those pre evolutions (the torkoal one is good... but i could do without haha)

The main thing that bothers me though, is the green hair on the hero. If i could change one thing... that would be it. Just that, haha.

But yeah, pretty solid looking game you got here, I'll have to play the demo sometime when i get a chance :)

OK, here's my BUG REPORT:

Tried a New Game: made it to the Prof. lab and after choosing my starter, the Prof. chastises me which traps me in a continuous loop of her repeating her rebuke over and over. Eventually she does stop, but only after she's moved in front of the staircase blocking me from leaving her lab. GAMEBREAKING BUG. (Although I've discovered a way to work around it. SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS.)

Tried continuing the save that comes with the game, where you play as the Girl named Dia: made it to where you interrupt the meeting of the Professors, and Prof. Oak explains what's been going on, where the background goes black while he's speaking (all you see is text). The problem is that the screen stays black after he's done. You can't see anything (due to the dark screen) and no amount of button pushing seems to move you anywhere or do anything. You're stuck--but the game's not frozen since you can access your menu and fiddle around with that, even saving your game. ANOTHER GAMEBREAKING BUG. (No workaround for this one)

More Bugs & Errors:
* If you enter the Prof. lab, then leave WITHOUT choosing a starter, you can still leave town even though you have no pokemon.
* In the lab there are several passability errors: you can walk onto the counter where the blue monitor is; you can walk onto the counter where the pokeball sits; and you can walk onto the left side of the long blue counter at the top of the lab.
* In the lab, when you choose your starter, if it's Cyndaquil or Mudkip, they're referred to as GRASS pokemon.

* Start a new game, enter the Prof. Lab, THEN LEAVE without choosing your starter.
* Then go back inside and choose your starter. When the Prof.'s words start looping, keep pressing the space bar or 'C' until she finally stops speaking--this will take awhile.
* Now leave the lab--you can exit because she left after you entered the 1st time, so now she's no longer blocking the stairs!
* Proceed to where you interrupt the meeting AND THIS TIME THE SCREEN WON'T GO DARK WHEN PROF. OAK SPEAKS TO YOU.

So, you can continue with your game from there. However, you will skip the 1st battle with the rival that's supposed to happen after you leave her lab. I don't know if this causes problems later on. At least you can now play more than 5 minutes of the demo though.

Bugs aside, GREAT WORK SO FAR!!

Game looks fun! :D
