So bassically this is a GBA remake of a diamond version... I like it!
But I'm suprised that nonone posted anything on the thread so far as it is two days old... anyway good luck as you have a lot of work to do with scripting and sprite inserting...

If it weren't for those DPPt tiles, this hack'll look good.
You should try and use custom/default tiles, they're better! (b'-')b

I hope you succeed in this hack of yours.

Fixed, although you have a point about changing them- I know those DP tiles are perfect, but they're over used. I know they're appropriate for a Diamond... 'port', but I suggest changing them.
Will you be changing the battle backgrounds too? I just think the DPPt ones look nicer with the DP sprites .

I will change the battle backgrounds to the DPPt ones, because the FRLG ones don't look very well. Also, this is not an exact port of Diamond to the GBA, it will have changes on the plot, and the name is not definitive, so feel free to say possible names for the hack

After re-reading the story, yeah, I realised there'd probably be changes
Names... Perhaps...
*Pokemon SparklingDiamond (bit too letter-y?)
*Pokemon RoughDiamond (bit... Meh).
*Pokemon DarkDiamond.
DarkDiamond sounds cool, but you'd need something to make it Dark in the first place, so... I dunno. Just my suggestions

Why does he need to change the name? The only reason I came into this thread is because for once I knew what I was getting myself into. I may look further into this if it nears completion, good luck.

I like "Dark Diamond", and I can create a "dark" story. Maybe I could make Giratina, Zekrom or Darkrai the main legendary pokémon of the hack. And if I choose Giratina, of course the Torn World will be included. I will reflect this afternoon, and we'll see what happens...

Primal Dialga is a good idea. But I have a "beta" idea of a story: Team Galactic wants to find all the species of Pokémon to clone them and use them to conquer the world. But, because the machine they use doesn't work well, the Pokémon they create are shadow pokémon. With this story, we can make Primal Dialga or Shadow Lugia a part of it. What do you think?

Yeah that's a good Idea but stick with the Primal Dialga but you should chuck Palkia in their Shadow Palkia/Dark Palkia/Devil Palkia xD

I like those tiles, and the idea of a Diamond premake for GBA is good!
Can't wait for the first release!!

Nice! I would love to play as Dawn!!!

BTW maybe you could make the rival different? Have the other sex be the rival? So if you are Ash your rival is Dawn and if you are Dawn your rival is Ash? That'd be interesting to do because that way both are in the game

How to fix the house glitch:
Just go to block editor, then save tileset 2, open it up in paint and move the house tile in a different place (the top) and I'm sure it'll be fixed. :)
Anyway, you should change the tree tiles as they're overused.
Good luck! :D

The rival will be Barry, but you will also have the oportunity to battle the opposite sex during the adventure. The rival "Gary" that appears in one screenshot is only in the game for testing purposes.

This is not a problem, because if you try to jump you can't, but I will change it for safety. Also, the house glitch is already fixed; it was caused because the tileset I used was a bit corrupted
