I have been keeping up with this hack for a long time since back when it was named just Dark Future. I hope this hack gets made well and when the final version is done, I will be downloading it. Good luck with this hack and any other hacks you have ideas for.

Why wait? :D Yeah, I do see your point here but, it just sounds so silly waiting for me to complete this thing first (especially since playing a beta release won't hurt at all).
So, go and get beta 4 when it's up! You'll be surprised!

But thanks! I don't think I'll be making any (not even minor) hacks beside this one though.

It was actually put inside the PC for a reason, and you were mentioned "The Item was put inside your PC" (although, it's true that it's easy to miss that part of the text).

The amount of items that you can have in your Key Item pocket is limited. So, it's always a possibility someone manages to fill up the Key Item pocket before fighting Neal, and then, you wouldn't have room for the Page at all.

So, I put this "hidden script" in the hall of Grand Tower where the sage in there (who also checks whether you've Signet or not) checks if your PC is full. If it is, you may not compete in Grand Tower (because if you won, Neal would try placing the Page inside your full PC).

Spoiler:

#org 0x10C530
= Although you have\na Signet, you may\lnot enter because\lyour Pc is full\hF2 \pTake at least one\nitem off your Pc\land you may enter\hF2\e

As you can see, he saying this literally makes no sense. But hardly anyone will ever even notice it (really, who succeeds into filling up the PC with 50 items in it...), so the implementation doesn't have to be more "creative".


I could work this out a little bit better, but it works just fine in the game. It could always try to add the Page inside your Key Item pocket first, that ought to be a little better way of doing it. But I wanted to try something out of ordinary at the same.

Thanks, yet I have no idea what you're talking about here..

If I remember correctly, the scene is implemented like this in beta 3.1 (I've changed it to work out better by now):

1) If you talk to the guard, he will tell you to go to see his wife in Milky Village, and grab the Key to the gate. Go and see her and bring the Key to the guard and he will open the gate.
2) If you go to see his wife first, you should even now be able to pick up the Key and deliver it to the guard (if you agree you'll do that for her).

But no matter which way you go for, the guard won't check if you have the Key in your item pocket if you try to pass the gate by stepping on the tile below the guard ("the gate entrance"). So, you have to talk to the guard (while having the Key in your key item pocket) yourself to be able to pass instead.

I was kinda lazy when developing the gate scripts for beta 3, but worked it out later though.

That's a good question...

I really don't know yet though. I've certainly gotten more and more stuff done, and the thing is, if I didn't want to include all those sidequests and redo some original events, I could release the next beta already today (the "gameplay content" is 100% done). But if I did that, beta 4 would feel almost as "incomplete" as beta 3.1.

And apart from what I've to do myself, BlueEmerald has been helping me out with grammar, and we have yet to decide, "will he help me out with rest of the grammar for beta 4 or not" (if he does, this is also going to delay the release date of course).

But it will come in time. If not next month, then probably in June.

1. There are still two more pages to be found.
2. Neal's team has improved (along with the whole Grand Tower but not until the next release) if you go through Grand Tower challenge again.
3. Sounds like you managed to beat Dustin's Carp. How about Flounder? Or Piranha ?

There may be some other things you can do as well (like enter the Big Shoe) and such. Explore more if you want to achieve everything you can possibly achieve in beta 3, or just wait for me to finish the next release first (you'll eventually have to start over from the beginning, yet things will be quite a lot different at the same time).

One is easy, but the other one is very tricky to obtain.

Hint:
Page #1: Re-explore areas where there is water.
Page #2. You need a certain Key to obtain this one.

Also, I feel like I should have something better to say than to answer to questions here but nope.
I probably won't post any updates in a while until I've gotten things in such condition that I can almost start tracking for possible bugs in the releasable version so it may take a while. New screenshots may come in the meantime though.

Sounds like you've already hit 3 pages instead of 2..
Well anyway, you can probably find the page you're looking for in the locked house in Western Lake.

Spoiler:

Get the Key from a guy in the Area between Greenwood and The Jungle, and you'll find the Key inside a desk in that locked house.

First result by google search: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=205244

Of course, "dark future" is the name of that old beta you would have been looking for.

Unfortunately, no, you can't get Exp. Share back unless you modify the save file / memory of course.

This actually gave me an idea; I'll make it so you're somehow warned by the NPC you can trade with that your pokemon is holding an item and ask whether you'd like to trade with him/her or not.

Anyways, if you're using an emulator (like VBA) to play the hack, you can easily get that Exp. Share back.

1) Open "Memory Viewer" under "Tools" category.
2) Input "D5B8" in that box you see there and click "Go".
3) Change the value (two-digit hexadecimal value) in the top-left part of the screen that Memory Viewer shows to "39".

Now, the first item in your item pocket has changed from whatever it was before to Exp. Share (and amount of those items won't decrease).

I'm really enjoying this hack, I'm not super far but it's a really well made hack. For the first time (bar gen 1 & 2) I'm actually going around talking to everyone just too see what they all have to say, and I'm actually rewarded for it. I LOVE IT!!

Anyways, thanks for all your work and effort on this game I can't express how thankful I am

Probably in June like I said earlier.

But I'm no way pushing myself to finish it or anything, so it was kinda stupid leaking out possible times I could release the next beta in the first place.

Thank you!
And you know what, I also respect you for paying attention to what's going on. I didn't take time building all the events for random places without a reason you know

Also if you're interested, some people may have different dialogues (and scripts) depending on the situation when you approach them. This is mostly (somewhat) noticeable though.

I am thoroughly enjoying this hack and the uniqueness of the story.
Though I would like to know if the squirtle that is met just outside of Little Stone, is that a one time event or is it possible to get squirtle later?

If you'd have somehow managed to lost the battle, you could have encountered Squirtle there again, but it's natural to script the events so that it doesn't matter whether you catch/defeat the encountered pokemon, so no, you can't encounter Squirtle again.

Thanks though

Update post of "what's going on";

-Many new sprites (new pokemon overworld sprites mostly) have been added to the hack, thanks to Blue Emerald for creating them
-The counting algorithms used for Battle Room BP gaining didn't quite work, so I just spent a two hours fixing things up.
-And beside that, I've been doing a bit of adjusting with several events that were already implemented in beta 3.

Here's a video of a new intro sequence in Dark Energy.

(Interesting stuff starts at 1:04, but before it, there's some background information so you might wanna watch that too.)

O.o

A cutscene not involving the protagonist before the game starts!

Spoiler:


I think that's a first for a 2nd generation hack!

And I like the new sprite for Team Darkness grunts!

The tricky part wasn't actually that but making it so this house works as the starting place, but you'll still end up in your room ("2nd map") when losing a battle before visiting any PC out there. But, the general idea behind this thing is practically the same as the one for Team Darkness cutscene you wrote about back then.

And I find the sprites for Team Darkness members neat too. Captain is still unchanged though, but I may want to leave him like that actually. It is done by Poketto(-Monsuta) btw so credits to him.

But hey, thanks for the comment!
