View Full Version : <<Hack of the Week>> - Have you voted this week?

Pages : [1] 2 3

March 3rd, 2008, 6:44 PM

We'll try to get this to be more organized this time, so, we'll start this thread for all the weekly votings (instead of making one each week, which'd annoy everyone... XD)

The idea will be to start the weekly voting on the first hours of Sundays and finish'em on the last hours of Saturdays

Alright, as always, the first thing are the rules...

1. A hack can only win the HotW once. Obvious rule.
2. In order to prevent any possible kind of manipulation, only votes from users with more than 30 posts will be accepted.
3. Voters MUST include a reason for their vote. Think about it carefully: What do you like about that game? Put some thought on it and dont just say "because it's good". Dont worry about not being original, just express your thoughts in your own way.
4. You must only vote for the hacks in the list of elegible hacks. These hacks are those whose topics were created in the Hacks Showcase at most 31 days ago (as old as Oct,23th inclusive), or the ones who have chosen to use its "second chance", or the ones that were in the Scrapbox and meet the following requeriments:
*its topic must have been started more than 31 days ago (Oct,23th inclusive) but it must not be older than 62 days (Sep,22th inclusive)
*the thread must be in the first four pages of the Scrapbox
*it must be marked as a "hot" thread (that's gotten after receiving lots of views)
*it should contain at least some in-game images through its thread, we are not voting for ideas, but for hacks in overall
5. If the hack's thread is closed by the time I run a search for the valid hacks, then it wont be considered elegible for the current week.
6. Once the list of elegible hacks is made, it wont be changed during the week. Meaning if new threads are created, moved from the Scrapbox, or closed, the list wont change (but it will do in the next week). Just what's present on the first hours of Sunday is what counts.
7. Hacks which havent made it into the HotW due the 31 days rule can participate in the "second chance" one time. If you are interested, keep reading further.

The idea is that the hacks whose topics are older than 31 days can enter a "second chance" in the votings. This will give your hack a whole month of possible nominations (four consecutive votings).
Basically, your hack must meet the following requirements:

-It mustnt have won the HotW previously, lol
-Its thread must be older than 31 days (couting from the date the thread has been started)
-Its thread must be active in the Hacks Showcase (if it hasnt received a post in more than a month, then it cannot participate)
-It must not have used its "second chance" some other time
-It must not be one of the 10 hacks which have reached the finals in the HotY for the last year (else it'd be unfair to the 31 days hacks, I'm sure any of those 10 would win over the newer ones)

If your hack meets those requirements, just send me a PM on the last days of the current month/first days of the next one, and that way it'll start participating in the next month's four votings. Sending me PMs on the middle of a month will surely make me forget about them. That's why I'll add the second chance hacks only at the first Sunday of the new month. Dont worry, because I'll mention when you could send me PMs about participating in the second chance after the month's last voting finishes. Just check that out.
If you have doubts, just PM me and we'll check if it can use the second chance.

And that way, while the 31 days rule is a kinda automatic thing, the second chance leaves the rom hacker the option/responsability of picking when to participate. Be wise, as I wont tell who'll be using their second chance till the list is made. Be confident or make sure you'll be showing good stuff on that month, you can always wait to use it, if you want. It's up to you.

in alphabetical order

---There are no candidates as Season 1 has ended, look for a new HotW thread---

Example of a VALID vote:

"I Vote For: Secrets and Rumors
Why: This hack can really take advantage of the crazy theories we had as kids, and make them come to life. I think this is a very good idea, and should have been done a long time ago."

Questions about the Elegible hacks? You know you can PM me about that ;)

March 3rd, 2008, 10:40 PM
I vote for Topaz/Garnet
Why: The most graphically appealing hack out of the possible choices. Mapping is great, looks like there will be some awesome events as well. Also a lot of tile and pallete editing has been done to make it look like FR/D/P because of the Ruby rom base. Looks like a lot of care and attention went into making the hack.

March 3rd, 2008, 10:45 PM
Pokemon Omega
It's a cool hack with good graphics and good scripting,thats all I gotta say for now

March 3rd, 2008, 11:04 PM
Pokemon Zephyr
Its a good hack, and I like the story^^

March 4th, 2008, 2:28 AM
Pokemon Omega
Because it's amazing
Good graphics and good scripting
I don't have much to say,but it's great

March 4th, 2008, 3:46 AM
I vote for Mystical Glacier.

It has an amazing story line, good 4th Gen Pokemon. Also game-play is awesome. :)

March 4th, 2008, 6:08 AM
I vote for Pokemon Grey

A rare "orignal"(it could do with some tweaking but it could be really good) hack. There are not many RBGY hacks around these days.

Well, restored everything. Of course, Week No.2's voting was already done, with Xiros' Omega winning it (if you still want to congratulate him, do it in his thread, this one's just for voting)

Now Week No.3 has started so it's time to vote again!

It's a pain that the other post got deleted, but, just remember this voting is not meant to be a competition. It's just a way to express an overall opinion on the hacks around here.

March 11th, 2008, 9:57 PM
Eruption is a month old,but I'll vote for that casue it's cool with some good scripting
And it has a good leader and EVERY Good hack has a leader dong most of the work,unlike Pokemon R-Sun,LS,MW,Aurora and MG

March 12th, 2008, 2:40 AM
Umm...4fetter0_0 the competition is finished, also zel want this locked seeing as it has finished?

March 12th, 2008, 4:28 AM
No, Blazichu. I thought we better make just one thread with all the weekly votings (because if we had to make a new thread each week for each voting, we'd fill the Rom Hacking section with such threads... That'd look like a mess, dont you think?)
That's why I said that we can start voting again, for Week 3, on this same thread.

And, if we count 31 days back (from Mon, 10. That date the voting started), that leaves us at Feb,8(inclusive), so all the hacks as old as that date are participating (And Eruption is barely over the limit, but I dont like to say those things as that could lead to some manipulation, so, just vote for what you feel like voting, and write a valid reason)

March 12th, 2008, 5:50 AM
What happens if a hack is moved into the showcase from the scrapbox? Are all eligible set or can new choices be added? Not that I don't want to vote for any.

In fact I vote for Psychic Pink for its awesome graphics and originality.

March 12th, 2008, 12:47 PM
I Vote For: Topaz/Garnet
Why: Obviously the graphics are impressive and distinctive (Not all FR, not all DP, not all Custom, but somewhere delightfully in between). I think the story has as much potential as the visuals. Also, I'm impressed with the professionalism that seems to accompany the hack.

This one seems to have a lot of potential.

March 12th, 2008, 1:36 PM
I vote for Mitic Island.
Its graphics are great and it has good mapping. There are some things that i don't like but i still think it deserves to win the "Hack of the Week"

March 12th, 2008, 1:48 PM
i vot for Pokemon Zephyr because its taking sometime the graphics are good and it shows a lot of unoriganal storylines

hi sir tomato my password is syvniti
March 13th, 2008, 5:48 AM
I vote my mitic island! Because it's a game that always facinated me.

March 13th, 2008, 10:05 AM
@megiddo: To answer your question, it'd be the same thing as if it were a new thread popping on the Hacks Showcase. It'd be considered in the next week's nomination (if still possible)
To make things short: "Once I have to search which hacks accomplish the 31 days rule, I make the list and that list wont be changed till the next week. No matter if threads are created, moved, or closed"

And, megiddo, Psychic Pink is not in the list of elegible hacks. Unfortunately, by Monday, March 10th (the moment the new voting started) P.P was a couple more days older than 31, and I cannot make exceptions. So, you'll have to vote for something else, if you want.

Well, have fun picking! :D

March 13th, 2008, 10:22 AM
Wow, this is a pretty hard vote, there are some amazing hacks that are eligible for voting... I'd have to go with Pokémon Mitic Island! It is terribly difficult because my favorites are Mitic Island, Thunder Emblem, Zephyr, Omega and Topaz/Garnet! :P

The reason I'm voting for it is that Lex is one of my greatest friends, and his game's palettes and tiles are amazing! I mean, he's inserted as much tiles as I can imagine... So many different trees, maps, and other things that have amazed me. He's inserted like a million palettes for just a single tree, and I also respect him for all of his other hacks. So, Mitic Island is my vote!

March 13th, 2008, 3:23 PM
Vote Of this Week: Pokemon Piratite

Reason: This hack takes the Pokemon world into a completely new breath. You must risk your skin to save a young, almost drowned, child. In addition to the amazing new type of story, it posses a VERY nice looking new evolution to the Clamperl family, Narquiem.

March 14th, 2008, 6:58 PM
Thunder Emblem, i like the title screen and the story sound nice and interesting.

a new killer, ramoteh
March 15th, 2008, 12:02 AM
I vote for Mitic Island
I don't want to repeat what other people said
It has very good graphics
When I saw this hack,I got amazed with it's graphics
In my opinion,I think this hack has the best graphics
But hopefully it ain't all on Graphics

March 15th, 2008, 3:20 AM
I vote for Eruption, because of it have great graphics. And i cannot find any other game, with Entei as the spotty!

March 16th, 2008, 10:39 AM
Ups, it's true, the backup killed my vote.

Then I'll vote for Piratite for its great maps and interesting plot.

March 16th, 2008, 6:01 PM
Okay. I vote for Mitic Island for its amazing graphics, sprites, and cool story.

March 16th, 2008, 7:05 PM
Okay. Voting for this week is closed. And it's clear that this week's winner is Pokémon Mitic Island, by Lex (and alexmad and other people in the past... XP)

Voting Results
Mitic Island, with 5 votes
Eruption and Piratite, with 2 votes
Zephyr, Thunder Emblem and Topaz/Garnet, with 1 vote (I personally sent a PM to pokepal2007 a few minutes after he did his post so he could edit his vote with a reason for his pick. Guess he wont be able to change it now...)

Well, hopefully we'll get more voters in the future. This is just the start, but we have to make of this something important! :D

Alright, once again, if you want to congratulate Lex about getting the HotW, do it on his thread (this thread is only for the weekly votings)

Okay, people. Week No.4's voting starts right now. Please proceed with the voting (it's gonna be an interesting week this time, good hacks on the list :))

March 16th, 2008, 8:15 PM
I vote for PKMN Never B&W...
Why, you may ask? It's because i love the screenshots, for it shows great talent in mapping and tiling. It also has a nice story and a very pleasing male and female sprites.

March 17th, 2008, 12:27 AM
I also want to vote for Never B&W. For its really interesting plot, its good scripts and because it has the best tiles I have ever seen in a hack.

March 17th, 2008, 1:00 AM
I vote for Pokemon Never B&W. Because of its tiles and palletes and the sprites.

March 17th, 2008, 5:13 AM
I vote for B&W for it's fantastic scenery, interesting story, and great scripts.

March 17th, 2008, 5:29 AM
Reign Of Legends, of course. And with that i mean that i vote for Recue Rangers! You will need to be a good hahcker for making a new Dungeon gamme. The graphics could be better, but i think it´s a nasty Plot, if you want create a game like that, with good graphics :P

Sarcastic Prince
March 17th, 2008, 5:57 PM
I vote for: Pokemon Never B&W.
Reson: Because of good scrips, like the Earthquake script after Skoria's battle.

March 18th, 2008, 4:11 PM
I Vote For: Pokémon B&W
Why: This hack has the greatest tiles I've seen on a GBA hack. It's the first I've seen to show a third dimension. (And do it well.) The "You don't remember anything" story is hardly new, but certainly offers a chance for an interesting change of pace to the average hack. I see tons of potential here.

March 19th, 2008, 1:57 AM
i vote for....ruby destiny-rescue rangers.
why? because destinedjagolds an amazing hacker, i mean, to create a mystery dungeon style game out of a ruby rom! pure brilliance...absoulute(can't spell) brilliance. the way he's made healing plants too, and one way warp systems. he subtley tested these ideas in reign of legends and it has paid off. so once again i vote for ruby destiny-rescue rangers

March 19th, 2008, 10:32 AM
I vote pokémon shiny gold !!, when i was young , i've played whole the time everyday on pokemon gold/silver/crystal, it's a long time ago that i've got so much fun like when i was playing those 3 games... now i'm so glad there will be a remake of it with extra events! THANK YOU ZEL !!

I'm glad that apparently there are new people voting, but dont forget to give a reason for your vote, even if you end up posting the same reasons as someone else, just post it in your own words.
Well, basically, write a reason or the vote becomes invalid.

March 20th, 2008, 12:46 PM
Hm, well I guess I know who's winning what now, so I'll pick Pokémon Never Black & White! I bet you know why, but to make my vote valid, I'll tell you why. xP It has incredible tiles and palettes, and the scripts and events are timed out perfectly, from what I've seen with videos. The choices of music are perfect, and the hack is very original. Not to mention that it'll be in English! (Thanks to me and Alexllew!)

March 20th, 2008, 2:29 PM
I vote pokémon shiny gold !!, when i was young , i've played whole the time everyday on pokemon gold/silver/crystal, it's a long time ago that i've got so much fun like when i was playing those 3 games... now i'm so glad there will be a remake of it with extra events! THANK YOU ZEL !!

This post is pure fail.... This is not what HOTW is for. It's like a perfect example of what not to do in this thread.

Anyway, my vote goes for Pokemon B&W. Mainly due to it's superb mapping, and cool story line. I feel a lot of time has been put into it.

March 20th, 2008, 3:03 PM
Please put in a reason

I vote for pokemon amnesia.
Why: I like the storyline and graphics mainly but it has a couple of jokes here and there(from the screenshots) w/out it being complete nonsense or cursing.
it sounds really good also.

March 21st, 2008, 8:31 AM
I vote pokemon B&W because of its awsome graphics, scripts and effort from the author. It is exactly in my view what a hack should be :)

March 21st, 2008, 8:41 PM
I vote for Pokemon Ruby Destiny- Rescue Rangers...
...because it uses amazing scripts to make a zany game. I think it is a fun idea with good sprites and tiles.

Shiny Gold, with 1 vote (aka "the lol vote" XP)

As always, if you want to congratulate him do it on his thread (this thread is only for voting, I know I repeat it a lot, but it's better to be safe XP)

Alright, the next voting can start now. While checking the threads a few elegible hacks had their threads closed, so, that's why the list is a bit shorter this time. But fear not! I'm trying to organize my ideas for something like "a second chance" for hacks, but, I need to write it in a clear way. For now, this week's elegible hacks will be the ones in the list. There will be no changes.
OK, happy voting! ^^

March 23rd, 2008, 7:57 PM
I vote for Pokemon Grey
Because I like the new tiles,and looks like the author is learning more and getting to do better stuff

March 23rd, 2008, 9:07 PM
I vote for zephyr for its great story and cool events.

March 23rd, 2008, 9:57 PM
I vote for : Pokemon Grey
There are hardly any blue\red hacks around here.
This one is looking pretty good
And the new tiles look great.

March 23rd, 2008, 11:58 PM
I vote pokemon grey because it nearly has the same feel as Pokemon Brown did!! The author may also be putting ASM scripts in.

March 24th, 2008, 12:11 AM
I vote Pokemon Ruby Destiny Rescue Rangers. it is a unique hack with a nice feel to it ive started to hack MD because i saw this hack of ruby.

March 24th, 2008, 12:37 AM
Ruby Destiny

Great new storyline that appeals to me.

a new killer, ramoteh
March 24th, 2008, 12:53 AM
I vote for Pokemon Grey because Gengars is one of my favorite pokemon.
Also,there are hardly any Blue hacks around here,I think this hack needs more attention
He's doing a good job inserting tiles to.

March 24th, 2008, 2:01 PM
I vote for: Pokémon Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=129528), because if the amazing originality found if you play it. The player is literally a Pikachu, which I've never seen in a hack before. (Though admittedly, my knowledge of hacks goes back only about a year.) Also found in it are amazing scripts. destinedjagold (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=48504) has already completed one hack, so he has experience, and I'm sure he'll do a lot to make this hack great. Very deserving of hack of the week in my opinion, after just missing it last week.

Edit: Anyone else notice each of the four winners was based either on Gold or Ruby? No Firered, which is easily the most common base I've seen.

i vote for ruby destiny - recue rangers, the idea is very good to play a pokemon and it's much better than MD, also the beta is really large and the scripts and the missions have a new game feeling

TB Pro
March 25th, 2008, 1:05 PM
Vote Of Week 5:Pokemon Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers(RD-RR)

Reason: A very new feel to the Pokemon Universe. NO existing feel of Ruby. New Tiles created by Destinedjagold. Wonderful OWs. Great battle sprites.

March 26th, 2008, 6:58 AM
I vote for: Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers
Reason: This hack is not something you see every day, its a great idea that no-one in the history of pokemon hacking has done( I think so). The OW's are great and alot of effort is put into them, so alot of hard work is done in this hack.

Sarcastic Prince
March 26th, 2008, 6:14 PM
I vote for: Pokemon Ruby Destiny- Recue Rangers.
Why? Because it's very hard to make a MD hack out of a Ruby rom. The graphics are very good, too.

March 26th, 2008, 7:04 PM
I vote rescue rangers, for it is the definition of unique at the moment in the hack scene. also looks great for a ruby.

March 30th, 2008, 2:24 PM
My vote's for Pokemon Thunder Emblem cause I like it's tiles and the overworld sprite for Ash.

March 30th, 2008, 7:55 PM
Ding, ding! Voting's closed once again. And, even though it started as a close fight, in the end we have another clear winner, which is Pokémon Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers, by destinedjagold. Making Ruby the most winning base... Amazing, eh? (I knew I should have started my hack on Ruby >.<)

Voting Results
Rescue Rangers, with 8 votes
Grey, with 4 votes
Zephyr and Thunder Emblem, both with 1 vote

So, as always, if you want to congratulate him, do it on his thread (because, well, you know, this thread is only for voting)

Alright, a new voting can start. You'd probably be surprised at the low ammount of options this time. I guess there werent a lot of new threads around the Hacks Showcase -_-
Anyway, that's when I have to introduce the "second chace". Which basically means that, a second chance for those hacks who havent won the HotW in the past, and for those hack which couldnt make it in due to the 31 days rule. Of course, I cannot really explain everything again, so I'd suggest you to read its section on the first post.
During this whole week I'll receive PMs about hacks wanting to participate in the second chance. Once the next list is made, they'll be added for four consecutive votings. And the hacks that dont want to participate in the next month, then, they'll have to wait for the next one (no additions mid-month, for my sanity reasons)
(PMs are the prefered way, because posting your petition here sounds a bit odd, and this thread is only for voting)

Oh well, this week's list remains as it is. I just hope people still vote '^^

I vote for waterfall for its interesting story.

March 31st, 2008, 5:42 AM
PKMN Waterfall is my choice to vote for it kinda caught my interest, and the Suicune event was cool.

April 1st, 2008, 10:13 AM

Please, write in the creators:

Hehe, good luck in the next contest.

April 1st, 2008, 10:41 AM
i vote for pokemon waterfall, because i really like the story and the events, it really caughts my attention with the suicune event!

April 2nd, 2008, 7:20 PM
I vote for Pokémon Amnesia. Of the three hacks up for vote this week, this one seems to be the most developed, and has a much more original story(Read: Something we haven't seen before, for the most part.) than either of the other two candidates. The palettes are soothing, and the original tiles look good. Also, the creator claims to be aiming more towards events than badges, which is always a plus in the hacking world.

April 2nd, 2008, 7:41 PM
I vote for Pokemon Waterfall since there aren't many hacks that contain Suicune as a mascot... (except Crystal remakes)

April 3rd, 2008, 4:27 PM
I vote Amnesia. 1st post!

April 3rd, 2008, 6:30 PM
Pokemon Waterfall. It's very good. Especially the Events and scripts.

Theres alot of hard work done on it, because he had restarted it xD. The story is pretty good with the suicune, and there are nice events and scripts in the hack. The titlescreen looks good...and thats about much....

April 4th, 2008, 7:02 PM
I vote for: Amnesia
Why? Er, I just forgot (okay, lame joke). It has an intriguing plot, and looks to be of professional caliber. It was a hard choice between this and Waterfall, though.

April 5th, 2008, 6:35 AM

Well, time to finish another HotW, this time the winner is Pokémon Waterfall, by Horus. Hopefully this will give his hack an extra impulse :)

Voting Results
Waterfall, with 9 votes
Amnesia, with 3 votes (had to ditch rednano12's vote because it lacked a reason for his vote)

Do the congratulating on his thread, as always.

Alright, since I havent had requests for participating on the second chance, and that'd only give us just two hacks for the voting, and since I didnt want to cancel this project, I decided to include some of the most popular and with the best potential hacks from the Scrapbox, I know that some will not see fair to not see their hacks in the voting, but I tried to do what I could (everyone cant participate), because this was something I had to do while I'm waiting to see if someone will want to participate in next month's second chance, or if more threads pop up in the Hacks Showcase.

Meanwhile, the threads in the Scrapbox will have a chance to be considered to enter in the list of elegible hacks, so if a hack gets posted there, attracts people's attention, and shows some potential, it'll be added in the next week.

Well, that's what I had. You'll have a harder time picking this time, at least >.<
Happy voting!

April 7th, 2008, 2:18 PM
I vote for silver current for its nice scripts and I like the story.

April 7th, 2008, 3:19 PM
Its a hard decision but i have chosen this hack:
Pokemon silver current.
the scripts are amazing and so is the story.
maps could use a little work though.

BTW what if there is a tie?
will both people get an award or will there be a final decision between the people?

April 7th, 2008, 3:37 PM
I had to check them all out as I hadn't heard of any of them before, but I choose Pokemon Amnesia.

Why? Very original story and looks promising. It will be fun to see how the author pulls all the amnesia story-plots off. Then again, I've always been a story person over graphics...

I vote that we throw your hacks away and play the copyrighted games Nintendo produces. It's extremely silly in my opinion to try and steal something from its creator, and making hacks of Pokémon games is no different.

Furthermore, I'm also against hacking the copyrighted games themselves, using a cheating device such as Action Replay, etc.

April 7th, 2008, 7:18 PM
Just because you're a supporter doesn't mean you can insult us hackers.
If you don't have anything nice to say, don't post anything.

Sorry, I have to post. The report button doesn't work.

~~~merging my vote to make my post valid~~~

Well, I vote for POKéMON: Tale of Baby Deoxys...
Why? Becaus it's the only hack in the scrapbox that I find very interesting and it's the only one active with updates in maps, commonly. :P

April 7th, 2008, 7:34 PM

i don't want to spam this board or complain at a person who is at a much higher rank then me.
We hack because nintendo won't let us make a game where we think the game should revolve around entei.
we basically hack to entertain people,use it as a hobby, and to make a game where we think something can be right if we want it to be when we just don't like game development or aren't experienced at it.
and it is extremely immature how a high ranked person such as you would spam.

April 7th, 2008, 8:25 PM
I suggest that u guys plz delete ur posts and forget this ever happened.
And they're right, just because u don't like hacking doesn't mean u have to be so uptight and such a jerk to people who enjoy hacking for others amusement.
So can we plz be nice to each other.

I vote for Tale of baby deoxys because it has the imaginative idea of making a baby deoxys and raquaza which seems pretty cool.
Goodluck, mon94key!

Good for you. If you don't like it, keep it to yourself, amirite? Hacking games legally is no more silly than mixing your Pepsi with your Mountain Dew, and not near as silly as a Community Supporter trolling on the boards. Come on now.

On topic, I vote for Pokemon Hokum Trilogy: Part One. (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=132845) The story is the basic one we all know, but honestly, exploring in that sort of atmosphere on the GBC brings a refreshing sense of nostalgia I've felt here only a few times before. Something about it just gets me excited to play, the way I did when I first read about Gold/Silver way back in the day.

His scripts are nice and is working on most of the hack,unlike most hacks there are.

The best thing to do in that case is to consider both as winners (which would give Barker a harder time making awards lol)

I had to check them all out as I hadn't heard of any of them before

I just wanted to quote this, as in the end, it's one of the main ideas of the HotW, to get people into knowing more about the new hacks around :)

April 9th, 2008, 5:04 AM
I vote for flame of rage...
It was a close rage, but I mean that flame of rage has the best chance for becomming a great hack..

there were many other good candidates this time, though..

April 9th, 2008, 6:24 PM
I vote for Flame of Rage
because the story was great and the events too

April 10th, 2008, 2:59 AM

April 10th, 2008, 2:48 PM
I repeat my decision of last week: Amnesia. There's just something appealing about the graphics and the relatively original story. Besides, I hope winning HotW will help motivate Hedgehogger to keep it up!

It has cool scripts,all I care about is scripts

April 11th, 2008, 12:10 PM
I vote for Pokémon Flame Rage:

Reason: I really liked the videos of the sripts and its a nice storyline too. ;)

April 11th, 2008, 6:10 PM
i say and vote pokemon flame of rage, an original storyline and you can see your starters. plus too i like fire pokemon and that is all of the starters. i mean, a police officer father, never seen that in a game or hack.

April 12th, 2008, 6:10 AM
Just curious, are we able to vote for Brown 1.2 in a future one? You said scrapbox included =p

April 12th, 2008, 6:32 PM

Because the storyline is so cool

April 12th, 2008, 10:16 PM
flame of rage
the three starter pokemons are cute when the are in OW forms

April 13th, 2008, 1:58 AM
i vote flame of rage coz have a potential to finish it soon and nice palletes,spirites etc :D hope the creator and the team add d/p pokemon to make there hack better :D

April 13th, 2008, 2:28 PM
my vote goes toward Amnesia.

why may u ask? the cool storyline and nice looking graphical touches of course.

Congratulations and the like on F.of Rage's thread, please ;P

OK, let's start with this new week's voting. There were some new threads, and that means more voting options :D
But still, I decided to keep Scrapbox's hacks as part of the votings, however, they'll have to meet certain requirements (mainly to pick those that show potential, seriousness and that they attract attention ;P)

-its topic must have been started more than 31 days ago but it must not be older than 62 days.
-the thread must be in the first five pages of the Scrapbox
-it must be marked as a "hot" thread (that's gotten after receiving lots of views)
-it should contain at least some in-game images through its thread, we are not voting for ideas, but for hacks in overall

Those who meet the requeriments will automatically be added each week. Just two this time, but a huge ammount will be coming on the next weeks. Keep working on your projects, and good luck! ;)

April 13th, 2008, 9:51 PM
I vote for: Pokemon Silvercurrent...

Mainly because of it's scripting, and because I think it can go far...

April 14th, 2008, 4:36 AM
Silver Current is starting to look great. I love the way scripts were inserted. I also love the way Team Rocket captured Lugia (my precciiiiiooouuusss!!! No!!! I'll get you Team Rocket! :P) So I vote for Silver Current... ;)

April 14th, 2008, 2:46 PM
I vote for Silver Current for the same reasons I voted for it last time.

April 14th, 2008, 10:13 PM

Pokemon SilverCurrent. The scripting is quite good, and the story looks quite decent. It also seems to be updated fairly often. :)

Voting Results
Hunting Mew, with 9 votes
Hokum Trilogy, with 3 votes
Steel, with 2 votes
Septo Conquest and Shimmering Pearl, both with 1 vote

Edition finished. Let's start the new week's voting! There are some interesting options, so I hope you all have a hard time choosing :badsmile:

Oh, by the way, let me remind you that you can only pick the hacks that are in the list in the first post. Dont go voting for Shiny Gold or other hacks not in the list because it has stopped being funny (at least, I've run out of jokes for such situations -_-)
Just take some time to review the first post, and then make your vote (and spend some time thinking about your reasons for your pick, since we are at it ;))

May 5th, 2008, 5:37 AM
I vote for tale of baby deoxys. The story is interesting and it has really nice maps.

May 5th, 2008, 6:33 AM
Darkblue. Why? I know if we give something like that to lex he is gonna definetly try finishing this one. And he always has the best graphics and stories hand down.

May 5th, 2008, 3:07 PM
i vote for shattered dreams
the story is really original and looks amazing =]

May 5th, 2008, 3:14 PM
Well, I vote for Shattered Dreams, for it's a very interesting hack.
I also like the screenies, since it gives nice mapshots in the game, and I kinda like the story...

May 7th, 2008, 9:47 PM
Pokemon: Shattered Dreams (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=134206) gets my vote...

I love the story involving Lucario and Mewtwo, including the involvement of Jirachi (never involved in any storyline in RSE), Latios and Latias...
I also like hacks that have 4th Generation Pokemon...

May 8th, 2008, 2:47 AM
I vote for Darkblue... Nice graphics and because the maker seems like he really want to finish he's hack..

May 9th, 2008, 6:00 AM
I'm vote for Topaz because the helicopter is amazing and the game is in the team rocket side.

May 9th, 2008, 6:04 AM

May 9th, 2008, 9:18 AM
I vote for Pokemon Shattered Dreams, it looks like a good hack, the sprites are bad, but the maps are nice and the storyline is decent.

I would vote for my hack, but probably I can't, so I won't vote for anybody. Sorry if this is spam.

May 9th, 2008, 10:52 AM
I vote for Pokémon Shattered Dreams, because it has nice tiles. :)

May 9th, 2008, 2:28 PM
I vote Baby Deoxys because I think that a baby legendary is a great idea and it looks cool.

May 9th, 2008, 8:05 PM
I vote for Pokemon Steel
Reason: It is very original and a lot of effort is put into making the story as original as possible even though Xray recieved a lot of critizim on how it was a dup of SG. He put loads of effort into making a new storyline.

May 10th, 2008, 8:01 AM
My vote goes to darkblue.
The reason is because lex_14 really seems motivated this time.
also because the palletes,tiles, and story is good.

This hack has very good maps.
It also has a good layout...

May 12th, 2008, 2:37 PM
I vote for Pokémon DarkBlue, it deserves to win because the mapping and the graphics are amazing!

May 12th, 2008, 2:39 PM
I'm voting for Pokemon Steel. It looks good and the features appeal to me.

May 12th, 2008, 3:57 PM
I vote for Pokemon Amber. The story is awesome and things look great.

Pokemon Darkblue I Vote For

clearly, you haven't read the rules in the first post and zel's post (which was just above your post)...

Hey people, dont forget to include a reason for your vote.

I vote for Pikachu's Tale, for I really wanna play a POKéMON Game which is really based on the animé series. :3
Also, the maps are really nice. :3

May 12th, 2008, 11:56 PM
I vote for Pokemon Amber. Theres a lot of things I don't really like about it but the amount of work that has been put into is very impressive. With a few adjustments it could become really good.

Platinum Lucario
May 13th, 2008, 2:50 AM
I vote for Pikachu's Tale, because Pikachu and Ash are just one sprite.
But of course, it would be good if you could have a Pokémon folowing you. ;)
I like it because it's based on the animé.

May 13th, 2008, 7:55 AM
i vote for Pikachu's Tale because i think it has the potential to outdo Nintendo at an anime based pokemon game and it has nice maps and sprites :)

May 13th, 2008, 10:51 AM
i vote for - you guessed it - pickachu's tale, because it bring back one of the best games (if you dont know what im talking about, its yellow) and has new features and storyline. following the anime, with all those sidequests and all, its going to be a really great one...

May 13th, 2008, 11:27 AM
Pikachus tale cause its a bad pun and the maps are great. Also go anime type game!

May 13th, 2008, 5:21 PM
Steel gets my vote for this time for giving fresh life to the land of johto w/o retelling the same old story.

May 14th, 2008, 2:49 AM
I vote for Turquoise: Aqua Egg because although the starters make about as much sense as deep-fat-fried salads, the story and graphics are good.

Hardy Har Har
May 14th, 2008, 5:10 AM
I vote for "Tale of Baby Deoxys," because it has a unique storyline, and an awesome, all-new region.

May 15th, 2008, 4:09 AM
i notice something, should be "Week No.01 - Pokémon Secrets and Rumors (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=125910), by Skeetendo" was a Hack of Silver and not Gold..?
I was just wrong..!^^

May 15th, 2008, 3:16 PM
I vote for pikachu's tale .. it looks so cool!

May 15th, 2008, 3:46 PM
Pikachu's Tale. It's like the Pokemon game I've always dreamed of, It carries almost every exact detail of the first season of Pokemon, from meeting Misty at the lake, to the almost perfect landscape tiles that resemble Pallet Town, Viridian City, and Route 1 exactly, it's a sure win. Even carrying Pikachu on Ash's back was included :D I'll be absolutely ecstatic when Barker finishes it, but I know it'll take a while, so I'm waiting ever so patiently.

May 16th, 2008, 9:00 PM
Steel gets my vote for this time for giving fresh life to the land of johto w/o retelling the same old story.
uhhh.. i don' think you know but the author changed the hack completely, custom region...

The anime accurate game i've been wishing for years...

(By the way, making an award for yourself? O.o)

Islander Jon
May 19th, 2008, 2:37 PM
I also vote for Pokémon Destiny. The maps look simple, balanced, and well-made all at the same time, the story is very unique and unfamiliar (always a plus), and the fusions are very nice.

May 19th, 2008, 3:22 PM
I vote for Clear Diamond
Why : Because it really has a good title screen,good maps,and Silver as the player!
And doing it most by himself?

May 19th, 2008, 3:27 PM
my vote is for Pokemon Destiny,
why, cuz its really unique and i can tell he is putting effort into it.

May 19th, 2008, 3:53 PM

One Winged Angel
May 21st, 2008, 9:30 AM
Ok thats spam.
I don't think there is a rule stating that MD hacks are not allowed.
If you think that because your Hack isn't on the list, thats because it's
date doesn't meet the Quota. Read the First Post.

May 21st, 2008, 10:30 AM
Actually, will you guys ever start getting Mystery Dungeon hacks on the list? There's one in the scrapbox- but then again... it sucks... for NOW!

Actually, there's just one Mystery Dungeon thread in the Scrapbox, with just one screenshot, so why post that?

May 21st, 2008, 3:42 PM
Pokemon Destiny for sure! It just looks cool, I like the mew and pikachu mix sprites.

Shadow Arcanine
May 23rd, 2008, 1:17 AM
i vote for pokemon destiny, because i think it's a great hack with much potential and because i really like the idea of pikamew and mewchu! ^^

May 23rd, 2008, 8:48 AM
Pokemon Destiny

Well, the thing is that since for now MD hacking is not that "supported", I doubt it'd stand a chance for competing against hacks that look more like hacks (and MD hacking still has a long way till the first "hacks" start showing up)
Of course, if MD hacking starts to get more serious, hacks'd be considered as selectable.

Before you ask, same thing would go for DP hacking, in case you are wondering.

May 25th, 2008, 2:06 AM
i vote Pokémon Darkblue because the tiles look good and they fit witht eh pallet and i aalso like the sprites on it.

May 25th, 2008, 5:34 AM
Pokemon rockets revenge....why?

Because its so original! ^_^

May 25th, 2008, 5:50 AM
Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back. Who knows how long people have wanted a Pokémon game based off one of the movies.

Well, the voting will be finished now. And, from now on, the next votings will be finished at midnights of Saturdays, instead of Sundays, since it'll be easier for me.

Alright, about this week's voting, the new HotW is for Pokémon Destiny, by yunghove. Congratulations! Specially after one of the toughest HotW votings ever! :D

Destiny, with 13 votes
Clear Diamond, with 9 votes
Lucario Legends and Darkblue, both with 1 vote

Finished editing the nominations list. Happy voting! Again, dont forget that from now on, voting'll end at the end of next Saturday!

And, by the way, use this week to tell me if you will want to use the "second chance", if you want to. So far nobody used it, so I dont know, but, still it's there, in case someone will ever want to use it... :P

May 25th, 2008, 6:30 PM
I have to go with Clear Diamond again for the same reasons as last time.

May 25th, 2008, 7:01 PM

I love the music and the graphics in this game.
I also like the idea of how D/P pokemon are going to be in it.

May 25th, 2008, 8:17 PM
Ok, Pokémon Mewtwo Strikes Back is elligible this week so I vote for it.

yup! it's eligible now! ^^

anyways, hm.., I'm having difficulty in voting, since my two favorite hacks; Clear Diamond and Mewtwo Strikes Back are both in the eligible hacks, yet, we can only vote for one hack only... This is difficult... -_-

well, I guess, I should go with Clear Diamond for now.
It has a great D/P sprites, the Giratina 'worm' sprite is great. :3
the graphics are okay, as well as the story. :3

I votes for clear diamond like I did I think last weeks. Its a good demake and will become something hopefully.

May 26th, 2008, 7:09 AM
Do i vote through this?

THen i vote for Clear Diamond, great effort is put down, gives the opportunity to those who don't have a NDS to play the game. It also continues somehow GSC, that's smth i think.

May 26th, 2008, 7:13 AM
I vote pokemon Dark blue, Lex looks more motivated this time, the quality of his hack is top notch

May 26th, 2008, 12:55 PM

mewtwo strikes back gets my vote because it hs good tiles and there is finally a pokemon game from a movie.


May 28th, 2008, 7:22 PM
PikachuEX, you have to say what you like about it for your vote to be valid.

May 29th, 2008, 7:17 PM
I vote for Darkblue.
The tiles r excellent!
Though there r a few glitches...but I'm sure Lex will fix them!
GL, Lex!

May 30th, 2008, 2:10 PM
and my vote goes to...clear diamond
well, i cant play d/p emu, and this game is looking way better than the original one, if everything that is wrote in "features" happen to be true

May 31st, 2008, 3:40 AM
I vote for Pokemon Darkblue, since its OW sprites and tiles are well-made.

May 31st, 2008, 3:43 AM

Sarcastic Prince
May 31st, 2008, 4:06 AM
