So far, this looks to be a good hack! I may download the Beta when I have time, but the images are great!

December 17th, 2005, 1:09 PM
Wow! This looks good, and i'm pleased to see that Pokemon Gold is still being used.

December 17th, 2005, 1:30 PM
I know that gold is old but the possibilities with it are almost endless!

Okay ^^ Can't Wait For More Screens ^^

December 18th, 2005, 1:33 AM
Seems pretty good, I can't wait for a beta.;)

There IS A Beta, Datriot ^^

December 18th, 2005, 2:21 AM
umm... when i unzipped it, it said the file is corrupt.

December 18th, 2005, 2:59 AM
Mr. Missing I have now uploaded an alternate link. I shall post more screenshots later. Keep watching the first post

December 18th, 2005, 3:14 AM
OMG! You rawk! That beta was EXELLENT! The best gold hack i've ever played! You are a superb scripter! How'd you learn?

December 18th, 2005, 3:19 AM
German hacking docs helped a lot but I mostly figured it out myself. trial and error always wins! I will probably release a doc soon explaining all the basics of G/S scripting.

December 18th, 2005, 3:23 AM
that'd be awesome! I wish there was an automatic script finder, then re-pointing and script editing'd be alot easier. I know a little bit about scrpting courtesy of a doc by ghost. Also how'd you make the title screen work like that?

December 18th, 2005, 3:28 AM
I edited the actual layout. e.g I can make tiles from the bottom half of the screen appear at the top by using a hex editor and no$gmb.

December 18th, 2005, 5:07 AM
this hack is fantastic!!!!! extremly amazing!!!!!!!! whoa! keep on the good work!!!!:shocked:

This looks great, I am always pleased to see G/S hacks.

If you need any help with anything or...anything just ask.
Keep it up.

December 18th, 2005, 7:16 AM
That is just... Amazing. I haven't got time to download the beat now, but it's refreshing to see a good hack (no offence, rookie hackers. But there aren't many good hacks around, nowadays) I love the GFX and font changes =3 Well, keep it up. I have high expectations on this hack.

December 18th, 2005, 7:18 AM
nice shroomish sprite! are there gonna be more hoenn pokemon deamped

December 18th, 2005, 8:09 AM
Cool sprites! Sadly I patched it and now Pokemon Gold is invalid!

December 18th, 2005, 11:05 AM
I've added new screenshots of the 3rd City (look at first post)
There will be a few more hoenn Pokmon Ported to Saffron and I promise to have a new tileset for each town!! Impossible you say? Well I think not....

December 19th, 2005, 8:27 AM
*faints* This hack looks SO good! Although, the font i don't like, this will be AWESOME! You should start a forum with all the hex tricks you know!

December 19th, 2005, 8:34 AM
I will probably do a gold master doc sometime after i finish saffron. And don't worry the font will be changed as I just changed it to that because I don't like the original one. Anybody got any ideas?

December 19th, 2005, 11:51 AM
Um, sweetie, the main character sprite is a sprite I let you have, right? What, me recieve no credit? XD

December 19th, 2005, 2:20 PM
Sorry Jeremy, I forgot about that I had a readme for the beta but I forgot to put it in the zip file/s. Anyway is anybody else interested in this hack?

EDIT: Four more screenshots for you to drool on! (Look at post 1)

December 23rd, 2005, 12:35 PM
Wow I just played the Beta version and it's great! I like how when you step to a certain point in New Bark Town (dont know what it's called) you go down to the lab, that's great!

December 23rd, 2005, 12:55 PM
I just downloaded the beta, and I have to say, that even though the beta is short, it contains some impressive scritpting. This hack is going to be great, I know it :D

December 23rd, 2005, 2:29 PM
Thanks for all the comments and please ignore the title screen It's just for the beta. I will have a few new screenshots soon...

December 24th, 2005, 9:24 AM
nice to see a new gold hack, keep up the good work :)

December 25th, 2005, 1:35 AM
Hey Cartmic BTW I'm really sorry about that silly gfx thing a while back. It's just that I don't people to steal or "borrow" my GFX.

Anyway I've found a lot of data in Pokmon Gold concerning the title screen and I will use this all and show in my next beta
Screenshots soon

December 28th, 2005, 8:41 PM
Looks good, I can't play it right now because I am in a Hotel in Vegas (Even though I live in Vegas) with my grandma and I dont have my roms right now, just the laptop with the net.

December 29th, 2005, 2:46 AM
Thanks Chris-h11 and WOW you live in vegas!

I'm not sure whether this is just me but when i patched my gold rom i got an invalid checksum but the rom continued to play with this emulator. The title screen graphics are glitchy, the name screen is glitchy, when u get into the bedroom the sprite walks off his bed into the black tiles and then u cant move after setting the time....is this meant to happen?

January 3rd, 2006, 11:57 AM
No mate this beta is 99.99% Flawless It must be your rom. As for the checksum that always varies with everyone's rom.

January 4th, 2006, 10:00 AM
cool hack i like the hackof gold

January 22nd, 2006, 3:50 AM
i like teh actual game but i must say that the GFX ar a bit off but other than that it is gr8!!

January 22nd, 2006, 4:47 AM
What do you mean by the GFX is a bit off?

January 24th, 2006, 4:44 AM
:D I played the beta and it was sooooooo awesome! You did a very good job in this hack! Keep going!

March 7th, 2006, 2:50 PM
I have made new discoveries the last while in gold hacking and these will all come to show soon. I know that not a lot of people still support G/S hacks but I will continue regardless

There already is a beta. Downlod it off the first page...

March 9th, 2006, 6:56 AM
it's pretty good but when the starter evolved it became a shroomish what you could also catch :( i hoped into something special :)

March 9th, 2006, 9:28 AM

Yeah i thought exactly the same thing ...
Maybe he has yet to add more pokemon and therefore it evolved into the one other pokemon being available ?
I wonder weather it would evolve into breloom aswell ...

This hack looks wonderful. I think we need some more screenshots.

2 words: GREAT GAME! I can't wait for the next release.

Just a few things:

After finishing the game normally, I decided to "explore" with Gameshark codes. I know this is still the beta, but here is what I found.

In the 1st town, the rival is standing on some trees a bit to the northwest of the top left house. You can talk to him and he will change positions. It's actually possible to get him off of the trees and into the town if you talk to him enough.

If you use the walk through walls code (NEVER use this code in houses, buildings, ect. on any gold/silver game, even if it is patched or not.) to get past the little rug sprite that sends you into the lab, and then go into the lab yourself, you can get the original pokemon that's in the ball, which is cyndaquil. (The game freezes up if you try to leave the lab, though, which was bad cuz I wanted to use him....)

Another thing regarding the actual pokemon, Slobsy is Bulbasaur, and Shroomish is Ivysaur. (That's right kids, if you evolve Slobsy, he'll turn into Shroomish.) But the problem with that is that Venasaur is still the 3rd evo..... I dunno if you're leaving that in or not....

I found a few other things, like the real G/S towns and routes, but some of them were gliched.

But still, great job with the game, and keep up the good work. (Add some more R/S/E pokemon, that's cool.)

Edit- Here's some screenshots.

1. Me on the other side of the fence. The bike sprite is still the same.

2. Pretty Self Explanitory. The sign to the left is unreadable. (as in its not glitched text on it, its that theres nothing on it, so by pushing A, nothing happens.)

3. This is a route with fisherman. Those guys are trainers, (which since I didn't have a pokemon, I didn't have to fight them.) and the green is a bridge sprite in the real game. What I don't get is all the signs. The unreadable A button thing works here.

4. I ended up getting stuck in this building at the Runs Of Alph.... when I clicked on the computer, it said, Bzzt..... You need a pokemon to use this. Wierd, huh? None of the doors worked, so I couldn't leave.

I'll get a screenshot of the rival in the trees later.

Are you like a reviver of old threads? Anyway a really good hack. I want to know how you got to change the GFX.

April 9th, 2006, 6:58 PM

July 7th, 2006, 8:45 AM
Some people still like my hack :) I might be continuing it (if i can find my rom)!!

December 23rd, 2006, 1:34 PM
