Hack is still in production - When I get time from GCSEs

Pokémon Alpha - Created By MudMast of MudMast Studios (MMS) (http://www.freewebs.com/mudkip-master)

Done Almost Mid-way Not-Much Nothing
- Twinleaf Town - Mapping Complete, Scripts: 25%
- Route 201 - Mapping Complete?, Scripts 5%
- Lake Verity - Not Restarted yet
- Sandgem Town - Not started yet
- Route 219 - Not Restarted yet
- Sprite - Latest: Hero sprite facing up.
- Write Longer Story - got ideas ready
- Add DP Pokémon Sprites
Pre-Alpha released to Beta-Testers

I will not tell when Pre-Beta is to be done
Or the Pre-Alpha.
The Beta's/ Alpha's will be released when most bugs in previous release are fixed.

This project had been restarted 4 times altogether
I got the idea of this last October
This hack is based on D/P but is 20 years later.
You are the Son/Daughter of Dawn.
The Prof.s Assistant is the child of Lucas.
I am no longer recruiting.

I am re-writing this
- I plan on making the real story into a fanfic.

I have Removed the Screenshots for now.

March 13th, 2008, 3:13 PM
Thanks, its nice to know i have support

ill PM you if i need help


i will get better screenshots in a bit after they were deleted with the other 4.5 days (and my post)

intro is now on first post.

March 15th, 2008, 12:56 PM
Hello all
i'm wondering why nobody is replying to this thread
its a realy good idea
and its diamond/pearl remake-i think

March 15th, 2008, 1:13 PM
it is a de-vamp of diamond/ pearl with extras i will include.

some screens are up
progress report is up
staff list is up
Pre-Beta is not up (yet)

after I have completed those above the pre-alpha the beta-testers will test it out.

i will post some more screens soon.

March 15th, 2008, 2:16 PM
sorry to rain on a parade here (oddly enuff it's parade day in scranton with silly hillary clinton parading round twn...i h8 her so anyway) problem with doing remakes/devamps is that they are not in great demand and appeal is not as great as more original ideas.

Now call me a cynic or merely a stater of the obvious, but I can't see the merit in making a clone of a game w/o adding something to mke it different enuff to stand alone. There are ways to get rid of the intro it's annoying but doable. And trying to mke d/p story fit into ruby's makes little sense to me.

I respect the effort, but as i preach and do myself, work on originality or perish. Now shiny gold would come up now. BUT it was the one who started the trend. Zel's work is respectable and a marvel. However, Prism is perhaps more deserving of emulation. 3 separate hacks based off the world that was created from brown. It's a pinacle of true talent and passion.

I'm not shure of your motivation of a d/p devamp, but consider the many other options you could explore. Perhaps if ur set on 4th gen, mke it a precursor telling back story ot set an original story in the land. Cause no matter how you spin it a remake is a remake no matter the coat of paint it wears.

March 15th, 2008, 5:04 PM
Though some people have actually wanted a de-vamp of diamond.

There will be differences!

And why post saying that you personally dont like this type and try to make this sound like a waste of time!

you could've said when i started this in october!

This hack looks nice. I'll look forward to it.
But I have to work on my hack...

March 15th, 2008, 5:51 PM
Don't take it the wrong way, There's a good chance for it to be a great hack. Mind myself and a few of the people i chat with, a lot of people got gaga for remakes of other games.

Personally I can't judge the story in place from d/p (dont own them) But! i'm just going to say that if u make it less a devamp and more it's own take on the area. Perhaps make it prequel to the story or sumthing. It's just one guy's take on a hack that has some promise.

I liek i said b4, call me a critic or a cynic. Ignore me if you want. I, along with many here, have seen a lot of hacks come and go into the breeze. The more original ones tend to stand out is all I'm saying. There was a time whenre there was around 5 johto remakes going on. They nvr got much support or very far.

i wish you luck on whatever you decide on. It's just my thoughts i'm posting is all. Kinda the point of a critic dontcha think?

March 16th, 2008, 2:35 AM
it is based on a bit after d/p so some places will be diffrent

March 16th, 2008, 5:19 AM
How long after D/P
are u maybe a son/daughter of previus diamond/pearl hero

March 16th, 2008, 5:21 AM
How long after D/P
are u maybe a son/daughter of previus diamond/pearl hero/heroine

EDIT: Sorry fo doublepost i had some problems

March 16th, 2008, 6:57 AM
well, i thought of this earlier:

It takes place 20 years after D/P.

(i linked to the anime - the twinleaf mom was dawns mom)

you are the son/daughter of Dawn.
the other character (the other male/female) is the child of Lucas and works as the professors fieldwork assistant
the rival will be the D/P rivals nephew

i need to think of names for the male/female character
i was thinkin of Luke for the boy?
i don't know about the other two

suggestions anyone?

March 16th, 2008, 8:11 AM
good to hear bout story changes, always as plus in my book. And if you haven't noticed, this is one of the very few hacks i care to look in on.

Good luck mudmast on this noble endeavor of grandiose proportions.

March 16th, 2008, 11:19 AM
after my rom just messed up i am now 2 days behind.

stupid .BAK files that cant be changed

so i need to do twinleaf again.
also on that rom, i was preparing screenshots to post, rom deleted ...
some entire overworlds ... deleted

stupid laptop...

right now i am writing a loooooooonger storyline

March 19th, 2008, 9:40 AM
sorry u musst delete so much

hope i hear the longer story soon

March 21st, 2008, 1:33 AM
on screenshots is just the origonal DP hero
he will be changed slightly as well as the over overworlds

I will just make a TimeLine and add story parts in between some places in the timeline

now laptop works again i can update this project!

hm, a hack that take place 20 years after diamond an pearl? yes why not but, i think you really have to chance the graphiks, i have the impression that the player is as hugh as the house next to him, i also think you have to chance the OW with the same reason, they are too big for the houses and the trees. i think you should make your own OW in firered size, your own because it's boring when you player just look like lucas or dawn, you can make them look similar but special, like making longer hairs or new hats or maybe another haircolor.
and what would be the starterpokemon? i wouldn't make the original sinnohstarters, well because it's simply boring cause you would have the same feeling like in diamond or pearl.
anyway, i wish you good luck an i hope my critisim wasn't too hard

March 21st, 2008, 7:26 AM
that was a test for the overworld editor

they will be changed

(did you read last post?)

just reposting to say:

banner V1 is complete

i wont be online over the weekend - at nans - no internet
so ill update then and prepare for updates on monday

March 21st, 2008, 4:14 PM
Wow... looks like a very interesting hack. I hope to see it out and about when you have time... I don't have much to say as the previous people have already said it.

April 14th, 2008, 2:25 PM
i restarted from a previous version of hack and put maps back in, with text as it was, so i think 1 error has been removed.

i need to re-complete twinleaf now.
though banners 1,2 and 3 are up. (anyone using blurred version 1 of banner, please update).

i have done homework and caught up in lessons,but project work to be completed, lots of revision (exams in about 3 weeks), birthday tomorow (went to london on saturday but it did rain...), school (hours: 8:00-3:30 - 8:00-2:30 on tuesdays).

so I DO have a live to live behind everything.
I hope to update more frequently very soon.

April 16th, 2008, 10:51 AM
wow banners are realy awesome
one is already in my signature:)
great work

April 16th, 2008, 1:55 PM
thanks, as I have updated the first post, due to the reset I did.

I now have XSE so I can make Scripts, I have planned the new Running Shoe Script.

I need help with naming the main characters and giving trainers names, just PM or post the names and i will start a checklist and use them (if they would fit in the game).

AS i said last time, I need to do homework so I have put a list of things on the Progress Report on First Post.

Sounds cool. if you need help, PM me. I can Map for you if you would like.

April 17th, 2008, 10:00 AM
Your making a D/P sequel?
Umm, that sounds quiet good, but I don't think many people will be interested in it. Anyways the story could use some work, you're supposed to add a main point to it, which makes the game unique. Anyways, good luck!

April 17th, 2008, 12:17 PM
there are quite a few updates, though a few places would look quite similar.
Now a quote:
It has only been 20 Years.

I am currently working with my rom, and SERG!O's DP tileset rom, to make Alpha look more "Diamond/Pearl"ish.

April 19th, 2008, 12:25 AM
this is great
it will be an awesome game
cant wait for pre-alpha:)

April 19th, 2008, 12:24 PM
i have added the new trees to alpha, Main twinleaf is complete. I need to do the texts again.

I have added a world map to the first post (the banner has glitched on that post for some reason)

if you read it, there is a world map of 2007 (my original idea)

but after checking advancemap and finding out how far over it can reach, i redesigned it and thought that it could be at a later date.

so, i created it as it would be during 2028.

i will not tell you why things are missed out. (like northern parts) - the upcoming story will explain.

April 23rd, 2008, 8:04 AM
world map is great

it is very changed
keep up the great work

April 27th, 2008, 7:09 AM
my SAT's are approaching (9 days to go!!) so I cannot update as often.

If you read the first post, you will be able to see what obstructs me from updating.

Also, the list of 'Help Wanted' is on first post.

Though, people I have an important message.

Pokémon Alpha will be restarted from the beginning due to an *cough*Advancemap*cough* error, so the ROM will be switched back to a "clean" rom base (though the one i used WAS a clean rom) shortly and will be remade again from the beginning.

So, i will not be accepting beta testers for now.

April 28th, 2008, 12:58 AM
sorry for that crash

i hope u fix it soon

May 7th, 2008, 1:51 PM
once i have done my sats, i will be able to do more on the project

But, anyway:

The A-Map Error has been Found!

It is the A-Map 1.90, which an error occurs when you resize a map, it deletes/replaces other Bytes of the ROM.

Lu-Ho is working on a Bug-Fix, and it should work soon.

Alpha will be restarted for the fourth time, as i had recently resized a map before i knew of this problem.

Why are you gonna lock this thread mudmast?

May 27th, 2008, 3:39 AM
because i dont really need it yet.

and after the reset, i may need to close this.

unless people want me to keep this open, i will just use this for the first post.

June 17th, 2008, 9:49 PM
When do you think you r going to be able to release

June 17th, 2008, 10:50 PM
When do you think you r going to be able to release

I will answer this with a story: I have a lot of things which distrupt the progress of alpha, so i can only make small updates, but in just over 4 weeks, shool ends. so i have 6 weeks of working on alpha :D

June 15th, 2009, 4:23 AM
Is a good hack, but I think Pokemon Light Platinum is better
