Oh look at how mysterious and such this screenshot is, without a trace of placeholder graphics.

Yet each reply to me means you're bumping it without being Yuoaman either, therefore if it were illegal you too would be breaking the law! A-HA!

also at least there's some semblance of hope this time :D

Nearly five years after this LP started, before this sub-forum had even been conceived, I have an announcement to make. It's one that I probably should have made quite a long time ago, all things considered - but one I was really reluctant to actually sit down and type.

The Let's Play of Pokémon Quartz (2.0) is officially over, and there likely won't ever be a proper final update.

Life has gotten in the way time and time again and work on the finale hasn't progressed an inch in months, so I feel it's probably best just to put an end to things before I myself just forget about the project entirely. I imagine there might still be some people that were hoping to see the adventures of Steven, UNHOLYbear, and the rest of the gang, and I apologize for disappointing you - I'm also disappointed in myself.

I am not at home at the moment so I don't have access to the project itself (I may throw some additional stuff at the thread once I am) but I'll briefly outline what the finale would have been like here.

- - -

After some more wacky adventures (finishing off the post-game stuff) Steven would return to Baro's lab and he would black out immediately upon entering the door. The finale would resume with Steven (as the actual Steven from RSE) waking up in his home in Rustboro. Steven would be asked by Professor Birch in a phone call to retrieve something from his father and bring it to Birch's lab.

The areas Steven would visit would initially be near-exact replicas of the "proper" locations from RSE with only some amusing references to the areas that match up to them in Corna. As Steven's journey continued, however, the strangeness would ramp up: with areas beginning to become amalgamations of the locations and with actual Corna Pokémon appearing. Professor Birch, in his phone calls, would also become increasingly erratic.

This would reach its climax when Steven, after slowly regaining his memories, reaches Littleroot Town (actually Breeze Town) and he confronts Professor Birch, who he discovers is actually Baro in disguise (who could have guessed? ) Baro laughs at Steven, claiming that even after he had created the illusion of a perfect world for Steven that he still couldn't let go of Corna. After a struggle Steven realizes that he isn't done with Corna, and resolves that he won't be until Baro, and his evil, are undone.

This is exactly what Baro wanted all along, an adversary worthy of him, and the finale ends with Steven exiting the lab with his team, prepared to become stronger to rid the world of Baro forever.

- - -

Note that this synopsis is missing a lot of details, namely the bad astoundingly funny jokes that would be included. Plus there are several things that I hadn't finalized, but this is as good a summary as any.

I wanted to get this up a couple of days ago, but here are some screenshots from the incomplete Quartz Finale project that I was developing with Pokémon Essentials.

UPDATE
[Note: Blue text is alternatively Steven's narration or his interactions with NPCs.]
[Note²: Red is the default character sprite in Essentials, I hadn't yet changed that before work stopped.]
Spoiler:












Incredibly impressive!


This was a little Easter Egg that my friend snuck into the project while he was helping me. I was probably going to keep it. (Though I would change it so it doesn't also crash the game.)







Torture is a kind of science, right?


WHO DOESN'T LOVE TRADITION?





Yeah, I don't know why the formatting is all funky here, it would probably have been fixed for the finale release.

Probably.







That accent still baffles me.







Why is it snowing indoors?

(Probably just set the flag for weather on the Rustboro interiors map by mistake, honestly.)

Also that last line was supposed to come from Steven, THE ERRORS ARE PILING UP.



Illegal activities sure are neat.




This is actually something that bugs me, because it would be prohibitively expensive to depend on a faraway region (since Hoenn is not connected to anything via land) for their power needs.





Literal best joke I ever wrote.

Probably the final of these updates, here's the final save file from the LP, if you're at all interested in checking out the team and whatnot: -QUARTZ SAVE-
