I like the idea of Mikachu. If you don't then just don't play it.

Hmmm none too shabby. Mikachu??.... Alrighty... Rather have me Torchic but okee dokee. Looking pretty snazzy on the whole.

Edit: Mikachu is too cute I've decided, and I love it!

I don't know why but I don't like Mikachu. Btw. You should update some screenshot so people can see how is going your work. It is your hack, so can make any way you like but please think about people are they like your story. I don't likd mikachu but thats not mean I hate your hack. I really like it. Keep it up. I am waiting for new beta for play.

This is, what, the fourth time I've tried to do this? I really should save my posts to a text document...

Anyways, it's mailbag and update time!

I really don't know what font FR's title screen uses. If anybody could help me out, it would be great.

I really enjoy watching people play though my game. Although, looking back on it, B2 was really crummy...

Yeah, B3 should go double what B2 went. Thanks for the encouragement!

From the screens, it looks quite good, however, there's not very much to go by.
From the Hacks Showcase forum rules, this shouldn't even be in the Hacks Showcase, as it doesn't have 10 screens, or "signifigant progress"...
But, I've played the previous SO(Before the restart) and it was amazing.
I'll play the beta now, and, good luck!
Yeah, I know that I don't have enough screens yet. Don't worry, I'm updating them this week.

I agree with Swimmer Ryan. Nobody forces you to play hacks, or video games for that matter. If you don't like Mikachu, then just go to some other, less Fakemon thread.

Finally, here come the updates!
Updates - 4/19/2010

Guess what? For those who didn't hear it the first time, Shining Opal is currently undergoing a HUGE revamp. This means:
  • Non-cheesy events
  • Better graphics and tiles
  • New music
  • New characters
  • New title screen
  • Better, less square maps
  • A fresh, clean storyline
Not only that, progress has been going along at an extremely fast pace!
  • Lake Zigger finished and done with!
  • Route 1 finished and done with!
  • Vantrek Pass (the new area) finished and done with!
  • Vantrek City is currently being worked on!
I'm extremely sorry that I haven't been releasing updates! I really wanted to get a lot of work done before the public showing (and my post keeps getting deleted).

Now, finally, here are the screenshots!




By the way, the Team Rocket images are just temporary.
Respond with what you like and don't like, and respond fast!

I really like this hack, but when the intro is over, the little message that is right before the start screen is glitched up, but it does not effect anything. Btw, I love the edited music, especially this intro music, keep it going! Hey when I was in the first route looking for pokemon, I was pressing the space bar to speed up, I found one but my game just crashed, can you please fix that bug?

This is a really good hack. I've completed the beta three times now and I am looking forward to the next update. So many things about the hack just click into place and make it a enjoyable hack - probably one of the best on PC. It's too bad that it's so early in production, or I would really consider a recorded play-through of it.

Hello, I'd like to play your updated version of Pokémon Shining Opal, but I can't find the download anywhere. On the first page there is only old version.
Where I can find it? And have you ever released the download for the newest big update?
Anyways, your hack looks very good, I'm looking forward to playing it.

Guess what? I actually know the creator of the game IN PERSON. Play this game, it rules.

...Oh wait, that's beta 3. Beta two is still good I guess. But beta 3 will kick beta two's butt. Trust me.

Lake Zigger's looking good, but the bridge tile looks somewhat messed up.
Well good luck!

Hey Diego, how's the hack coming along? I mean I really hope this doesn't get canceled, your hack was one of the main reasons I joined PokeCommunity. Also, I was wondering if I could help anyway at all. I'm not to go at mapping but I just started and if you need any help I'll try. If you need any ideas I could certainly help. Also, I was wondering if I could beta test. I really like your graphics, especially Lake Zigger, I like the idea of Mikachu, and I think your presenting your hack really nicely. Well, Good luck!

I don't know about the first glitch (probably left over from crappy overwriting of vital data) but the second one was caused by a Pokémon's messed up battle sprite (I believe it was Sentret).

Wow, three times? O_o You must really be crazy about my game. :D
Don't worry, because once B3 is finished and released, it'll be more than double the length of the current one (hopefully making it more walkthrough-worthy).

If you're asking about B3, it won't be out for a LONG while. (But be sure to look out for the B2 Redux soon!)

Thanks a lot. Most tiles were made/ripped/inserted/found by Full Metal, thank him. :D
And, yes, if you hadn't found out already, it is. Why?

I was also disappointed. XD And the next "release" will be coming soon (as soon as I get that new PC).

Well, I'm guessing that today's updates are exactly what you wanted then, huh?
And no, SO is still being worked on (although extremely sparingly, because my PC is getting BSODs every hour or so even after a system restore/format, and my parents still haven't bought me a new PC yet).

Now HERE is the long message that got me to finally start work on this post, even with all the blue screens.
But, really? You joined PC just for SO? :') That just about proves how much people care about my hack (which is awesome)! Sure, you can beta test. Like I said to Konekodemon, just read on for more info on that.

Thanks for the wakeup call, everybody! Here are the long-awaited updates!

Updates - 4/21/2010

The revamp of the areas found in B2 are around 50% done, with Vantrek City being about 98% done! Sorry it's not closer than that, but numerous glitches with my computer (this post has had to have been restarted about, maybe, 10 times) have stopped me from working much. Now, though, I'm getting a new computer!!!!
Awesome, right?

By the way, B3 Alpha (Preview) is ready to be beta-tested! Testers, please PM me your email address (and some proof that you work for my team, be it in link form or referencing back to an old VM or PM, but no copy/paste of conversations) for me to give you a link to the ~48% done B3 Alpha (AKA B2 Redux)!

How about I not keep you away from the screenshots any longer, and just show them to you now? Would you like that?



Tell me a change that I made throughout the course of taking this set of screenshots and you win a... cookie.
Anyways, tell me your opinions on the new updates!

Note: I will not do responses like this unless you are signing up, otherwise you'll get your response in the mailbag (whenever I have the time to make it).
tjwilliams24, you are Accepted for the position of Beta Tester. There will be no more Beta Testers as we already have plenty.

Hmm... the updates and the scripts are great, but
you should remove the hat for the Hero.
It will be better, because it'll be turned into a new OW then.

I like the new tiles that you've chosen and I look forward to playing the new beta, because the old one was satisfying.

Yes the old beta made me want to do a video playthrough but I was dissapointed when it ended so fast. So can we download the new beta already or do we still have to wait?
