»Intro/Info
Base Rom: FireRed[BPRE]
Hey, LapeFruitz here. I'm a Pokemon Hacker/Let's Player.
This Hack of FireRed, Forest, is the first hack I have
published, even though I've been hacking for like 2-3
years or so. This is a solo hack, I do everything,
except the sprites, like OW's and custom trainer sprites.

»Story
Spoiler:
Far north of the Unova region, Lariûn takes place. This is a really peaceful region protected by the two Legendary Pokemon Latios and Latias. But now an evil Elite Team, Team Khaos and their boss Khalgan, are starting to interrupt this peace. Latios and Latias has kept the two Chaotic Pokemon Torturoul and Dusknoir concealed in great darkness for over 100 years, Khalgan wants to change this, and so does their rival team, Team Taurror. You hear rumours about where Team Khaos' base is, it is said that they hide in a forest behind the Pokemon League. As you know, the Pokemon League is only accessible with all the 8 Gym Badges, so unfortunately for you, you need to collect them to reach their base. Team Taurror wants you to help them, and Team Khaos wants your friend(rival) to join them. You want to stop Team Khaos, so joining Taurror would help you, but they also want to release the Chaotic Pokemon, what will you do?


»Features
(There's not really many..)
The ability to choose!
Great scripts!
Great twists and turns!
New region to explore, the region of Lariûn.
All new half-exiting story...
New legendary Pokemon, the chaos Pokemon.

This thread could use a little work. The story tells us absoultely nothing about the game and is too generic. The features also tell us nothing. So far all I know is that there's some guy that I have to stop. Stop him from what you ask? I don't know you didn't say -___-

The maps look okay I guess, although you don't show much. Maybe you might want to consider using shading on the trees? The hero sprite looks good but his Ow's hat/bandana looks too big from the side. I assume the female will look like the male? Some screenshots of her would be nice as well.

I could say more but I'll wait until you provide more detail.

You know, I was about to say the exact same thing. This thread was pretty much approved because it just met requirements, but you should definitely lengthen the story section. You don't need to give away major plot elements (actually, I'd be worried if you did, as that's always a sign of someone who isn't going to take the hack seriously). But give us a bit of background info on the region, and.. Some of the other things that'll be in the hack or something. Right now, all I know is that I'll have to fight Khalgan at the end of the game, that's it. You should really give us a bit more on this.

Yeah, I will work on the post, and give a little more spoiler-ish story.
Thanks to both of you, I really need criticism about what I can do better, thank you.

The screenies give me hope, and the maps help, but there is no storyline! I know that's just what everyone is saying, but....

You seem to be a very good scripter and mapper. That's good.

I know, I am not a good storyline writer. I tried as good as I can, hopefully people will like the hack.

Nice Backsprites, even though the hair doesn't match from the front.... and a much better storyline. Might want to change the name that appears in the forum though, it still says khaos. And you realize that duskull is an actual pokemon, right? Or do you actually mean the pokemon duskull?

Honestly I haven't edited my thread yet, so no, sorry.

Is the other pokemon you mention with dusknoir a fakemon legendary, or just a fakemon?

You don't have to change it just cause I said so, you know. Just wanted to know you knew that, because otherwise I would be sad.

You need to VM a mod and ask them to change it.

On to the actual hack, the storyline looks nice, and I like fact that you can choose a team to join. The maps look okay, but they'd be much better if you used tree shading. I also think that you should make the dark blue flower tile a little brighter. You don't show that much so that's really all I can say. Good luck, this hack has potential!

The maps look pretty good, but the back sprite doesn't look so good ( I know you're still fixing it). Also,the male hero sprite looks really good. Lastly, I don't understand why you changed the title from Khaos to Forest. I understand the evil team is hiding in a forest, but I don't think that would require a title change.

Anyway, good luck.

Thank you, I am still working on the title. In my opinion Forest sounds better than Khaos.

Haha, thank you. Dad is going to play a big role in this hack, I don't want to spoiler anything, so I won't, just saying that he will be playing a big role.



Other than that, the release for beta one will be somewhere in september, or even at the end of august, stay tuned!

I think it would look better if you changed the tileset, as i really didnt enjoy the preset fire red one. THe trees are way to bright, but other than that it looks pretty good, like the characher nice bandana

All the files are gone, my computer got a virus and the only way to get rid of it was to change the whole hard disc. I didn't manage to back the files up before it was too late.
