Pokemon Amber Version
In the Region of Eora, a new adventure is about to unfold!

Hack Information
Name: Pokemon Amber
Base Rom: Pokemon Emerald
Language: English

Who am I?
I'm posting this to save time replying to people because I just joined PC. I'm not the type to post on a forum but I've been a constant lurker here for a few years. I've picked up bits and pieces how to make a successful hack since then and now I believe i'm ready to go public and bring you guys some excitement, so here we go.

Storyline:
You are child of mysterious father who throughout your lifetime has rarely been in your life. You grew up without his parenting and just your mothers. Ever since you can remember he has been gone for years; vanished perhaps on an "expedition" years ago. Your older brother, Cain, seems to be following his footsteps vanishing from your life also since he has became a Pokemon Trainer himself. You're 22, freshly graduated from school and finally living on your own.

You live in the vivid Cascade Town, home to the old renowned Trainer and now Professor Alfred Pine. You're asked to become a Trainer yourself, along with your neighbor who's around the same age. Alfred traveled throughout Kanto, Johto and Hoenn in his youth, making your starters all 9 total from Kanto, Johto and Hoenn!

The Trainers of Eora are diligent hard workers and getting to the top and challenging the Elite Four is all that means anything as a Trainer. You decide to follow that path and take the GYM Challenge yourself, as does your neighbor.. And his goal is to beat you.

So now the journey begins as you'll get your first Pokemon from Cascade Town's Professor. And on your adventure you'll never know who you might just run into!


Base Features:
- The Eora Region:
Located between Hoenn and Johto. Home to all 386 national Pokemon, all obtainable.
- An assortment of Rivals:
With a range of different personalities, some who try to help you along the way and some not so much...
- A challenge making it to the Top:
Get ready to work hard for your Gym Badges. Don't take the trainers lightly, or you'll be scurrying to the Pokecenter often.
- New Tiles/ Scripts/ OW's/ Trainer Art/ Maps:
Going by the style of game I want, you wont see maps Gamefreak style, Trainers will have modern influences, Script events fresh, New Everything. In time.
- MISC:
-Night/Day
-Custom TM's
-Changed Evolutions (for traded etc)

-Etc.
Im dubbing this as my spoiled goodies that will surprise you throughout the game.

-Eora's Mt. Battle
-Fishing Contest
-Customizable Personal Island (setmaptile ftw)
-Ability to Cut down special trees for lumber
-Grappling Hook to scale certain mountain ranges
- and more to come!

Team:
Alomar - Mapping/ Scripting/ OW's/ Plot/ Everything.


Screenshots:

Eora Region Map:

Ingame:


Game Status:
Coming Soon


Current Tasks:

Things I need help with or am working on:

Town Map - Done


Credits:
Green Charizard - D/P Center/Mart
874521 - Various D/P tiles


Tools used:
TileMolester Alternate <3

i like the tiles, very similar to shiny gold, and the story is pretty good, so yeah, keep at it, and hopefully this comes out as good as shiny gold, (just giving inspiration, i have my doubts that it will be as big as shiny gold.)

I suggest you change the tiles, as you technically do not have permission to use ShinyGold's tiles. Sure, you mentioned them, but you didn't ask Zel and get an answer of yes.

Given that the tiles are definitely from ShinyGold and it's improbable that you got permission to use them, I'd be obligated to infract you. Remove the tiles in question, take new screens, and PM me with them. Until then, I'm closing this thread.
Closed~

Hey everyone this is the Nitox mentioned above. I just wanted to let you know that i will be looking at the thread almost daily to see what you think. Also if you have any suggestions don't be afraid to bring them up to both of us. We both think completely different and take things in different ways. Thanks for all the support that you give and know that we care what you think. Hope you enjoy what you see and we hope you look forward to playing our game.

This looks like a hack of Shiny Gold and hacking a hack is usually a no-no. Even the backsprite is an edit of Zel's Gold backsprite. Other than that the rival looks cool if a little old while the players OW appears shorter than usual heros.

Yeah I know it looks like it with the same color palette, but I can assure you this was already settled when my thread was closed that i'm not using shiny gold as a base. i merely like a lot of the style and im working off that. yeah the backsprite is an edit of Gold, but if you read my first post here..

that is not going to be the hero in the end. this is just merely what i had messed around with before I started getting serious with this hack. For the actual backsprite when my new OW is done (which will be completely different) then i will proceed to the backsprite, currently its only 1/5 frames done, the only one being the first frame in the screenshot. the other 4 are the original firered ones lol.

Glad you like the rival, and Im working on making him appear taller, but the mohawk just makes that appearance. any ideas?

The rival is fine he just looks older than the hero but since you're changing the hero my comment is moot.

Sorry guys, but I won't be posting any update from now till I release a demo in about two weeks tops. Reason being is I have all the mapping down that I need to release a demo, and i'm currently re-rescripting from the beginning up, alot of things are bothering me that I want to change. after that's done, all I need to do is the titlescreen and hero sprites and fixing up the world map.

So check in on this in a week or two for a demo. ;]
(more screens and old ones updated will come then also)

Can I get this switched to an Emerald ROM hack instead of FireRed? no need to close this but i'm switching to Emerald as it has more to offer in the long run, mine as well do it now and not regret it later.

Thank you kindly, sir.
And will i need new screens since in theory its a different hack? If so thats fine just give me like 24-48 hours.. maybe till through the weekend would be awesome if that's alright... Only finished converting about half of my tiles from FR to Emerald and that took a good 4 hours.. Plus a track meet tomorrow makes tomorrow useless, so i need some time to get to scripting etc for screens.

I switched from Emerald to Ruby, based on that I don't want to deal with all the glitches Emerald so easily gives. I've also recently had an idea for getting your starter.

Normally you get it from a PROF. since your 10 etc etc

Well in Amber your 22.. You already have your Pokemon by now but! Based on your personality you'll get one of the 9 starters or Eevee if all else fails. There will be a Pokeball in your house when activated asks you some simple questions and that will determine your starter reflecting yourself. and of course if you dont like the result you can retry. thoughts on this? Ive just begun scripting it but ill be done and have screens to show tomorrow. for now i gotta peace and goto open gym to ball it up.

Well I'll give you a brief review based on the progress I've seen so far.

I understand you have a whole lot of background placed for the main character of the game, but I also understand that most of what you said doesn't tie in to the main part of the hack? It sounds like another heaps of this and that fight gym leaders and rivals type of hack. What's supposed to be the exciting encounters in the game that you are speaking about? At the moment I don't expect any mind blowing events.

Also, your features are plain and usually what's expected in every hack these days. New tiles, maps, sprites, gym leaders, rivals, enemy teams etc. Is there anything special you plan on working with to make this a fan favourite? Because at the moment I'm guessing this hacks reputation is going to be based entirely on graphics, which also aren't that great at the moment.

I expect these 'curve balls' to be that amazing they spark some interest in this hack.

Don't take this as a rage, this is constructive criticism and I hope you work on the points I raised.

Good luck on your future endeavors.

Hey, Emerald isn't unstable. It hasn't got more glitches than Ruby. The only I know are some scripting problems and music corruption, both of which can be easily fixed.
I was actually really happy that this hack will be based on Emerald, but Ruby is a way less attarctive base..
