Info:
Hello there, my name is .//HackZoroark//. and this is my hack, Voltage Version.
It's a kind of different hack, in the sense of, it's on Fire Red, but it uses Gold and Silver Graphics, simply because I find those graphics the utter most appealing. The hack itself is something I've been working on for only a week and a bit now, since I'm new to hacking, and this community.
But, hey! Without further ado;

Story:
You find yourself taking the role of a young child whom today is about to move out of their home in Mondas Town, to move to an academic city known as Terserus City, to take part in the Trainer School there, and take on the City's Gym. As you leave for your adventure, your mother gives you new shoes, and a map, and your father gives you his last Pokémon. A Mareep. Wishing you well, he sends you on your way.
As the Train's journey progresses, it eventually comes to a grinding halt, as large boulders block the path, most people see this as just a small problem, and venture through the route nearby, and make their own way to Terserus City, while a young lad called Vexx investigates, he explains how Static Co power the machines that keep the rocks out of the way, if they've gone down, then power has been altered or turned off. He then wanders off muttering and thinking to himself, as you're left to make your own way to Terserus City, with just a small Mareep with you.
Your adventure begins...

Team Static:
Team Static are the guys behind Static Co. the Tolbi region's main power source, they own over 20 of the large power stations around the region, and power almost every major city.
They announced recently to try attempting to move to more "eco-friendly" ways, and have been experimenting with "alternate power", but all research was and has never been released to the public. People of the region begin to think Dark Motives are behind Static Co...

Planned Features:
  • Able to catch all 251 Pokémon from GSC
  • Retro-style Graphics throughout the whole adventure!
  • Retro Music played in every map
  • A couple extra Pokémon from future Gens.

Screenshots:





*Images not 100% final*

Music:
All music will be 8-bit, and made to replicate Gen II music style.

Is Mareep guaranteed to be your first Pokemon? Or are there more starters?

Mareep is the main "starter". But you get the choice of Johto Starters later on in game. So, you don't have to keep Mareep.

A classic GBC format in Fire Red! Good luck with it! I am okay with a Mareep for a starter! Plus, it makes sense given the titlescreen. Gotta admit I'm awed completely!

Awesome, thanks! But, like I said up above, you do get starters, proper ones, later on.

I don't really like to give out Percentages or Release Dates. (I know you didn't ask for a date). It gives too much pressure to me, or too much expectation to the viewers of the thread, making them thing it could be released sooner than thought. :c

New Screens:


These shots show the player entering the train, on the train, and on the route the train crashes.

It's 2AM here, I'm off to bed, tommorow I plan to insert more music. (2nd Town, Gym, and PC/Mart THemes), and also, maybe de-vamp the battle screen.

Oh man, I love the G/S/C sprites, it seems pretty beautiful, one chance to change the battle panels? Congrats, I also believe that is a lot of responsibility to do all that when the hack really looks promising. Good luck!

I love your mapping style! Now i'm ashamed of mine. Also you don't need to apologize, shh. It's not like my idea of "GSC on FRLG" is something that nobody thought before, haha

Really looking forward to it. Maybe we can exchange experience in the future, since our hacks have a similar concept. Good luck!

EDIT: Also... Is that a Doctor Who reference?

Yush, I'm not good with original names for towns, so, so far I have three Doctor Who named towns. Mondas = Cybermen's original planet. Terserus = A planet of the bottom burpers. (Comic Relief episode) and Skaro = Dalek's home planet.

Kavos City, and Skull Cave. c:

Neat! Always good to see Doctor Who references (Saiken has some too).

Loved the cave theme.

Ba-Boom?


Working on the first gym.
he Gym has a lower path, for fighting trainers, and a higher path for skipping them and going straight to the gym leader.

Also, as shown in the screens, you walk under and over them, just fine. c:

Just a couple screens, of maps scripts and OWs inserted.


The Town Map, inserted by JoltJolteon, a guy who is friggin' awesome.

And a couple maps:
Kavor City:
Spoiler:

A city containing the First Gym, but unfortunately, the Gym Leader doesn't seem to be around, and if he was, this guy in front the gym says you need to train a bit.


Vaires Town
Spoiler:


A small town containing the great Professor Jim's Lab, and a place known as Hama Tower, which seems like a good place to train.


Other News:
Unfortunately, the summer is now over. :c
So, I've got to go back to university, which wouldn't be so bad, except my parents have forced me to move out, and into Student Housing for the year, so, for about 1-2 weeks, I might have no access to a Computer, so no access to hacking, but, yeah. I;m basically saying, I'm not giving up this hack, I'm just unable to work on it for a week or 2.

Zoroark, out! ~
