Well, first of all- I'm back after a break thats been much longer that I expected due to college, exams, a motorbike accident and some other stuff.
Secondly, the reason im hacking gold to remake blue is because MeBoy (mobile phone GB/C emulator) doesnt support GBA games etc. Because of this I'm remaking the game purely for use on a mobile phone but it may still be enjoyed by others.

Hack of: Gold
Story: Pokemon Blue with extras
Features:
  • New ways to get other starter pokemon
  • All 151 original Pokemon will be available
  • A few additions from the Johto pokemon set
  • Shadow Pokemon? (since i only intend to use a few Johto Pokemon i can replace others with Shadow Sprites)
  • Improved Surf Sprite (as seen in my other hack- Bright Gold)
  • Rebuilt Viridian Forest from Bright Gold
  • Articuno's Lair from Bright Gold

Basically, i lost all my Bright Gold data because i was moving onto a new pc so i'd formatted the hard drive and had my data on a memory stick, the memory stick was broken when i was knocked off my motorbike and so i have lost all my data from bright gold: i had done a lot of work since the beta's i uploaded. I have found the odd bit of data laying around in folders on other computers and as a result i am able to recycle some of it into this hack - Bright Gold will be worked on again some day but i still lack the motivation for it as i lost so many hours i spent on it.

Anyone willing to contribute can do so

Progress:
General
<<<THIS PART IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO KAGEX MAKING ME SOME SPRITES >>>
  1. Change Character OW
  2. Switch Hiro and Red Trainer Sprites
Pallet Town:
  1. Change warps to put house in Pallet Town
  2. Change warps for Oak/Elm's Lab
  3. Change events / scripts in Elms Lab - Half Done
  4. Set up Trigger in Pallet to stop player leaving without pokemon
Viridian City:
  1. Add Mr. Pokemon's House
  2. Remove the Battle Club house thing
  3. Alter the speach of the old man outside the Gym
  4. Edit Pokémart (possible swap warps with Cherrygrove due to the pokéball flag)

Aww, I'll miss Bright Gold

Anyhow, do you plan to make us start in Kanto, redesign it as of old?

If so, what will you do with the entire second region?

And are we allowed to vote on which GSC pokemon stay in? I call Houndour/Houndoom =p

I actually intend to recycle a lot of bright gold into this hack- the idea's, the maps,
i think it'll be voting out rather than voting in on the pokemon though
and i have no idea what i'll be doing with the spare region at the moment, but i think maybe if i do just do what i planned - remaking kanto as old with a couple of additions (i.e. the magnet train thing in saffron) it could be a good base for other hacks.

The game will start in kanto, as i type this i'm editing the character sprite to look like the original from r/b.

Any idea's are welcome

I think It gives it authenticity.
Anyway back to subject, you should create a whole new region with the spare one and add new pokemon to it (fakemon).

I need help with my hack I am novice and new to this, all I need is to add a few fakemon. Please someone help. It is pokemon purple, rise of the pokegods.

Just plop out the GSC stuff for full on RBY (except for say, Marill, Togepi, Donphan, Ho-Oh... the early stuff).

I'm thinking that i may scrap bright gold in favour of this game, mainly because this game has the same idea behind it
Or, i finish this as a Kanto only game, then expand it to finish Bright Gold
And the shiny thing wouldn't work because then they wouldn't be able to evolve into the normal pokemon to be purified.

I'm thinking of doing something like that.


And after that: UPDATE



just showing that i've altered the sprite.




What do people think to me carrying more bright gold into this hack:
  • Charmander starter
  • Bulbasaur gift somewhere near the beginning
  • Squirtle given for completing a challenge
  • Fighting another trainer to get legendary pokemon

Is there any reason that my images aren't showing up?
I've began to redo lab events but I'm not too sure
Is it a good idea to alter Elm's lab events or just to script them myself in Oaks lab?

EDIT: heres the images




UPDATE:
I now understand Triggers so i'll shortly be scripting a trigger to stop the player leaving pallet without a pokemon.
The rest of Pallet Town is finished though; ok, admittedly ive just changed the house and lab warps to save some scripting


PROGRESS:
Changed OW Sprite
Changed Trainer Sprite
90% of Pallet Town Finished

Because theres the 20 item bag limit, the TM/HM system in that game annoys me, i dont like the having to go into the start menu to use hm moves / bicycle etc,
i just generally get annoyed by blue nowadays which is a shame really but thats just how it is.

This hack will also be a nice rombase since it leaves an entire region to be played with.

That'd be cool, i'll VM you

quick update:
I've now started to implement a new set of sprites from KageX

I'm using the bottom of the two sets
I still need to find out how to change the backsprite though.

Hmm, no offense, but I think SaR might be a little better. Although, I think you should possibly do something else with the other region, instead of not using. Perhaps you could do some small island region or something like that. Also, you should consider making some more scirpts from RBY, not using the GSC ones.

Still though, I'll definately see how this turns out!

what's SaR?
and i think if i'll need to rewrite the lab scripts to use a proper rival (blue) but for the time being i'll use the pokemon gold script since it makes it easier to progress and i can go back to it

and the reason im not using the other region is because im making this as a base for another hack and releasing it to be used as a rombase aswell as a game :D

Still watching the hack, it's going well by the looks of it. I like it enough that i'll try to stop it from closing, if that's ever about to happen.

Ah, I see you're doing a similar idea to the hack I'm making(Secrets and Rumours, AKA SaR)

It'll be interesting to see how this turns out, haha.

Also, the back pic is compressed but you can insert it with AGIXP 4.11. you load the pic and then DON'T check the box for pokemon/trainer inserting and type in the offset 3F9CB(260555 decimal) for where to insert.

Also, I'm with Melash in that I would like to see some more custom scripts. I know when I first started SaR I used the old gold scripts, but now that I learned how I'm rescripting it all from scratch. It's more time consuming, yes, but its more original (or true to the original, whichever the case may be :p ) and it just helps you learn anyway, which is good for adding features later.

Anyways, keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing how this hack goes.
