Hack Of The Month- January 2011

You have until the first of February to vote for your Hack of the Month. The winner hack's thread will be stickied for a month, until the next month's winner is announced. The winner hack will also be added to PokéCommunity's official ROM Hacking Hall of Fame. Only hacks in either the Progressing Hacks forum or the Hacks Showcase forum are eligible for nomination.

This month's eligible hacks:

  • You may vote once per month, per hack.
  • Asking or bribing others to vote for your hack is not allowed.
  • Creating new accounts to vote multiple times is not allowed and will be dealt with accordingly.
  • Voting is done via the poll not by posting in this thread, votes in the form of posts will not be counted.
  • Don't complain that your hack was not chosen this month.


This one's called 'Red', and it's actually kinda Pokémon themed, so have a listen! Check out the links below for more stuff, if you like this!

Wow this is a hard one between Lilac and Super Rising Thunder...
Lilac has great graphics, the best mapping in most hacks currently out there, and is a really fun hack to play.
Super Rising Thunder, on the other hand, is simply an amazing hack. Great scripting, great story...

Ok, this took a while to decide, but I'm gonna go with Super Rising Thunder

I'm going with Lilac. It's definitely one of my favorite hacks of all time. The story is good and the beta was excellent.

Wow, these are all very good hacks. Simply for it's captivating story and scripting, and ideas, I'm afraid, for Lilac and Snakewood, I'm going to go and vote for Pink Parka Girl's Super Rising Thunder!

Also, we have until October?!

Yeah, I think they made a mistake. Shouldn't it be the first of February?

Anyways, I voted for Pokemon: Super Rising Thunder! because of the original ideas and its graphics.

Lol. That... Yeah, I'm not even going to explain that. Fixed, anyway.
I think this month has some of the hardest choices I've ever seen. Snakewood and Super Rising Thunder have good storylines, both totally unique. Lilac has the great visual appeal, and also a nice solid Pokemon storyline. They all have their pros and few cons, but I can't vote for all of them, so this time my vote goes to Super Rising Thunder.
It's not often you see a Pokemon hack where you play as a Pokemon- and it's nice to see it executed as well as Pink Parka Girl has been doing so far. Thus, it gets my vote.

Let me put it this way: anyone who doesn't vote for Super Rising Thunder clearly hasn't looked at it or is clinically insane. It has that magic, and it does one thing that hardly any hack does - it obsesses you. I am addicted to it and if you're not then you don't deserve to play it. It is spectacular in every conceivable (and inconceivable) way. In fact, don't bother with the Hack of the Year comp this year, because SRT has already won it.

PPG - you are AMAZING!

That's odd. Because Super Rising Thunder! was eligible for both the 2009 and 2010 Hack of the Year competitions and, to my knowledge, the only thing it won in either was third place in Best Storyline. :\

Send a message via Skype™ to TheChaosBlue torn between Lilac, Super Rising Thunder, and Snakewood...definitely a hard choice for me personally...
All three have good storylines as mentioned...I'm sorry but Snakewood gets my vote (don't hurt me Kip ).
I've been hooked on that hack more so than any other in a while; it's silly, engaging, and while graphic-wise it's not the best, it's the story and numerous references that got me hooked.
SRT and Lilac both have the story, the good graphics, and of course their own special flare, and for that I give the upmost respect to all the hackers involved. Again, some good contenders here, and I wish them all good luck.

My vote goes to Super Rising Thunder.
I have always admired the PMD games wherein you play as a PKMN.
SRT kinda gives me the PMD feel, and thus, I'm voting for it.

Whereas SRT has all these good things you guys mentioned, I personally prefer the usual playstyle. And as 'usual playstyle' goes, Lilac is my favorite. It's a great hack overall, and to tell the truth, it's the first time I liked non FR/LG tiles in such a hack.

I voted for lilac. It was a tough call between lilac, and SRT, but I eventually voted for lilac because I don't like the clash in tiles in SRT generally this wouldn't be a big thing, but these hacks were so close that it was just enough to put me over the edge.

All these hacks were brilliant, but Lilac is the best of them, in my opinion.

Way to make me have to make a tough call, guys. >:C

TBH I think all three have their own merits and great qualities. Lilac is beautiful, Snakewood is incredibly humorous and Super Rising Thunder! is so damn engaging. I think it's really tough to make a wrong decision here, but I think I'm going to go with Super Rising Thunder!, though Lilac and Snakewood are both equally deserving of the victory. :(

This was very very hard.
Super Rising Thunder- Very very good story, and graphics, but since there is no beta I can't test it out to my likeing, sorry
Pokemon Lilac- I love the tiles and graphics, but to me the storyline and the gameplay has to be really unique.
Snakewood- Really really good game, it shows how r/s/e tiles can work perfectly on this hack, and plus it's really addicting, and who doesn't like zombies in pokemon game? XD

I have to go with snakewood, but best of luck to the other hacks.
