Hack Name
Pokémon Citrine

Hack of
Pokémon Gold

This is my first attempt at a presentable hack & has evolved from others such as glitch version & af. I don't know much more than map & tileset editing so far so bear with me until it gets good (it will! mark my words).

You are a normal boy until one day you are given an opportunity to be the assistant of your local pokemon researcher. Your job is to explore your region & discover the several special types of pokemon. Once you set off you find a rival of your professor is out to prevent your research from being finished. It is now your job to try & stop him.

New Region
New/edited Maps
New pokemon
New gyms.

Mapper: Me
Spriter: Me
Scripter: TBC
Text Editor: TBC
Beta Tester: TBC

im loving the grassy trees

I plan to do more tileset editing.

I will probably release the first beta in mid december to the end of the year.
It will have mainly map & tile editing but some sprite editing. It will have very little or no text editing so there really won't be any story difference.

At the moment I am in no need of help because it is still only mapping I'm doing. I will ask for help when I need it.

Edit: at some point I will need beta testers to check for glitches & stuff.

This looks cool! :) I'd help if I could, but you've seen my sprites. -.- *shudders*

I am going to add several new pokemon that you have to catch to move on. Most of them will be blocking routes until you trigger the thing that lets you battle them.

The beta will end just before the first gym with a pokemon you can't yet battle.

I will soon be posting more screens.

December 1st, 2005, 2:50 PM
Awesome I will be expecting those ^^

This hack is not dead.

If everything goes to plan I should be releasing the beta within the week.

I just hope that more people will take interest with this hack.

Edit: oh crap, AGIXP300 managed to screw up the rom so release will be postponed until I fix it.

You know what?
I think I may continue this hack.

Restoring up to the point I was at shouldn't be too hard, I have a back-up but not a very recent one.

Watch out for more updates.

Cool hack. Keep it up, but old Pokemon game hacks are so boring.

I've already had this argument & don't feel like doing it again. There is nothing wrong with old pokemon hacks.

Yeah, whats wrong with them? G/S/C were much better than R/B/Y FR/LG.
Why else would there be so many remakes of them?

April 14th, 2006, 2:52 AM
Its good that you are going to contiune on that hack. The screen shots looks good. I look forward to seeing futher updates on it.

I am going to chane the name to pokemon citrine. Because onyx sounds too much like onix the pokemon.

I am going to almost completely change the tilesets. I've already done the trees, next is the houses.

April 14th, 2006, 3:00 AM
Yeah, that sounds a good name. Makes it sound unique at any rate.

This is the first ever beta release for this hack.

It is mainly a GFX (tilesets & sprites) & a map edit. But there will be hardly any story difference as there won't be much text edit.

There are some weird events on here, because I wanted to release at before going back to school, & hadn't had time to restore it properly.

*Waves magic stick.* There you go sweetie. Changed the thread's name. ^^
Good luck, sweetie.

Thanks for the name change 'Princess peach'.

Can some people play the beta, & comment on it? Just give me a little feedback as of what to do, or if there's anything that needs fixing.

May 28th, 2006, 2:42 AM
I'll have a go at the beta, and get back to you on some feedback.
