I suggest making the screen a bit bigger because it is kinda hard to see at it's current size.

That has already been accomplished actually. It is now DS size, now all I have to do is make everything fit the new resolution, which will take a while.

I guess you can say I'm temporarily back in charge for a while

Quote:
I've just played the demo (I know I'm behind), and I can say that it was alright. The story with Lance & Clair, I think, is superb and the Team Rocket kidnap is also a sound idea. Some of the Fake Pokemon I encountered were ok, and the starters are quite good. However, some of the maps were bland, the forest was WAY too small, and there way too mant older Pokemon about. I also don't understand what the name 'Grant' has to do with Rocks or the Rock type. If any of these points have been made already, sorry for bringing them up again, if they've been noticed or already critiqued.

It has potential, yet at the moment, it is not at the same level as some other fangames I have played and saw. I wish the project luck with whoever takes over from Houndoomed.
I agree with you 1000%. The sprites are going to be changed tremendously, into DP style of course. And the water starter is being replaced. The maps were a big let down, that's the reason I'm trying to find a new mapper. I've improved a lot myself also, so you should be seeing some new maps from me. Including a bunch of redone, renamed and more exciting maps.

Oh, and about your point on Grant: His name is a pun of granite, a type of rock.

Like I said a million times before, PLEASE don't judge this game by the first demo. It was rushed, everything happened to quickly, had thousands of bugs, bad maps and some bad sprites, the list goes on. I can guarantee the second demo will be a HUGE improvement, whoever continues it.

So right now, I'm working on the battle system, which is working out very well so far. It won't be too long until you see the new and improved Scarlet!

That's probably because you have other programs going at the same time, which makes the game lag.

In the beginning when Prof. Maple is telling you about everything(clair is your cousin, your name is lance, etc.), I think it makes it sound like she's stupid(I would probably know who my cousin was, and I've never been asked if I wanted to change my name).
Maybe you could make her say something like this:
. . ."I'm the POKeMON PROFESSOR in our region KOYOTO."
. . ."Your name is LANCE, isn't it?" The yes or no box appars(if you press no then you can change your name).
. . ."I heard that you live in the town of HAZELBRANCH."
. . ."I have been told that this is your younger cousin, CLAIR, and she's about to start her own journey, too." . . .
This way she sounds a bit less dumb (=

I played the 1st demo only i think. The DS size screen is on what resolution of screen? 800x600 or 1024x768? if it's DS size on a 800x600 resolution screen then that is still tiny.

The his not a hack, it's a game.
I find it quite easy to determine between the two. =P

Anyway, Houndoomed, I hope to hear some updates.
I'm curious to see what the new D/P version of Scarlet looks like.

Well, as of now Scarlet is on hiatus until I can find somebody to continue it. I have a few people in mind, but I don't think I've found anyone yet whom I'm 100% comfortable with.

I think until then I'm going to work on making a whole new region including region map, and remaking all of the maps

Until then, if a mod could close this please.

Yes. It basically means something is on a halt.

Anyone, moving back to topic, I'm now redesigning the region map! The first big change we've had in a while. It's actually going to be slightly smaller than the last map in width, but larger in heighth. This is because I'll be changing some things as we have some more room thanks to the bigger resolution.

Changes will include:
  • A region based on an actual region of Japan.
  • Totally different look and size.
  • A name change.
  • Possibly a different total of cities and towns.
  • Remade maps.

I hope to be done by the end of the week, as I have exams starting Monday.

Sounds good, Houndoomed.
I hope to see some of those maps, as I would like to see the new graphics.

By the way, what did you mean by "a name change"?
