        with the maps its just a simple case of getting rid of the black borders since the sides now use 11 squares and the top needs 7 for the borders

          Small update.
          Current map progress: 66.66%

          Next GTS giveaway i'm planning to start on the release of 0.14. Still debating what it should be, i have a few ideas, though i'd like to know what you want.

          Also planning on redesigning the interface for the GTS, now that it has a larger screen i'll be able to add more details to it and make it look nicer. Whether it'll be in 0.14 or 0.15 is undecided at the moment

              That error is normally caused by the game not being up to date. You need to run the updater.exe file located in the game folder before playing

                Version 0.14 is finally uploaded. I had major problems getting it to encrypt but everything seems ok now.

                Unfortunately the file size has shot up to 418MB due to the animated sprites.


                0.14 can be downloaded either using the updater, or the Demo link on the first post has been updated to 0.14. Heres the link for the demo
                http://lightning-yellow.com/Demo.zip

                As usual, let me know if somethings not working

                Looks pretty promising. I'm going to keep an eye on this thread to see how far you progress. If you happen to finish it I'll be sure to give it a try, as I LOVED Pokemon yellow.

                  Thanks.

                  Yeah, the title screen needs updating which'll get done at some point

                  Anyway. Redone the tileset for pokemarts


                  And Route 15 done except for entering trainer battles
                  Route 15

                    Hi, I've updated the game to the new version (0.14) and I got a issue when I try to play the game. I attached some pics to show you the problem.
                    In the pics you can see on the pics there's the annoying gray square in front of the game, I thinks it's a resolution problem but I can't find the option to change it on the Options menu. Someone has an ideia how to solve this? Thanks.

                      does this issue appear when playing an existing game from version 0.13 below, or does it appear on a new game?

                      I suspect its to do with the resolution in the save file being different from what version 0.14 wants.

                      The resolution can't be changed, i had several issues with it when changing resolutions messing up the screen, this being one of them.

                        I played the 0.13 version and then updated the game to 0.14 and got this issue.
                        I deleted the save folder from C:\Users\*username*\Saved Games, and it fixed the problem erasing my adventure and fixing the resolution. This shows that 0.14 version is incompatible with 0.13 saved games and configuration, oh well not too bad because I did only beat Brock :P.

                        One question: Pokemons that need to be traded to evolve like Graveler to Golem, Machoke to Machap , etc. In this game they need to be traded to someone else or it’s by leveling up?

                          I thought that might be the issue. What you can do is redownload version 0.13 from here (http://lightning-yellow.com/download.php) load your save file up and change the resolution to the lowest setting. save the game then load the save in 0.14. seemed to work for me

                          At the moment they need to be traded via GTS, though I may make the final evolutions available somehow at a later stage

                            Yeah that worked but the resolution itself it’s too tiny I think :P
                            Anyway keep up with the good work, loving it so far.

                              Doing that the resolution should change to the new one, like in the screenshots

                              The resolution is bigger than what the DS screen uses, and larger than whats planned for the new essentials. The problem with going with a very high resolution is you end up with a lot of unused space on maps.

                              Anyway, new map and screenshots
                              Route 14 no trainers yet


                              Jr Trainer wants to fight on Route 15


                              Sea View on route 14

                                Wow, its getting much better with every version.

                                Semi off topic: How did you get those map pics on your site (as in, how did you capture the map in such detail)?

                                On topic: The beginning of your game really needs some grammar and punctuation work. I'm really glad to help out if you want!

                                  The map pics are made using a program called MapMaker. Its something someone created using rpg maker xp. I've had it so long now i can't remember where i got it from, though i think i've seen it posted on here somewhere.

                                  As for the beginning, sure you can help


                                  Edit: Thought i'd seen it on here
                                  http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=230646


                                  Its gets kinda funny about trainer events though. They need to be completely empty otherwise it errors

                                    Route 13 finally finished. That was a hard one
                                    Both routes 13 and 14 have their trainers done.
                                    Working on route 12 trainers next

                                    Route 13
                                    Route 14

                                      Those new routes look very much like the games, except tile errors, The fence on the left side to the point of end, the fencing continues, whereas the right side does not...

                                      Again on route 14, the right side also continues.

                                      Just looks odd to me... Like how far the game is coming along though. X

                                              Just pointing out the fence looks odd that it has no end part of the fence... Although if you look on the one end it looks perfect... Both ends should match, it's like building a house, you wouldn't build one wall 11feet one side but 10 the other... Hard to explain but the pictures you can see what I mean... I like the new GTS, been following this for a while and it is actually getting better and better with each new update. X

                                                Background Info: I'm running Windows XP, I saw this a while back but didn't really check it out till just yesterday. I originally installed v0.14, but didn't play it for long before I updated to v0.15. I took the "Patch (v0.15)" file out of the v0.14 folder, deleted v0.14, and extracted v0.15 into it's own folder. From there, I've been playing v0.15 and I've discovered a few problems.

                                                1) I cannot buy anything from PokeMarts. I've made it as far as Pewter City, and neither it's, not Veridian City's PokeMarts work for me. Is there any way we could just spawn pokeballs for use or something? It's going to be pretty hard to Catch 'Em All without being able to buy anything.

                                                2) On the Rival battle that occurs West of Veridian City, in conversation, you're rival refers to you as "Yellow" rather than what you have named yourself.

                                                3) Upon returning Oak's Parcel to him, you are given the conversation: Oak: Oh, (Trainer Name)! How is my old POKEMON?
                                                Well, since we are the ones to catch Pikachu in the beginning, the text for this needs to be modified.

                                                4) Due to Prof. Oak allowing you to use Weedle at the beginning of the game, Weedle shows up in the Pokedex as a Pokemon that you have already caught.

                                                5) This one is a killer, when you enter Veridian Forrest, everything works fine (although I am kind of curious as to why the pathway goes Left and Right when you are going up through the door to head to the forrest), HOWEVER, when you attempt to exit the forrest at the North or South entrance, it forces me to get stuck in a wall. When I exit North, pressing Down then Up allows me to escape and be on my way, but the South exit is completely trapping and glitches for me.

                                                Also, in your post #360 of this thread when you were asking opinions about the battle screen, my suggestion is to make sure that the trainers are always in the center of the disc they are standing on, not off to one side. I like the 2nd image of Pidgeotto where it is in the air. As for option A and B at the bottom, both are fine, if fact, you should use option A for when the user has a larger Pokemon so that things fit better and option B otherwise.
                                                Additionally, I personally do not care for the image I saw for the update where for the user's pokemon healthbars overlapped one another in a 2 vs. 2 battle. Spread out the screen more, such as the circular pads that the pokemon stand upon. This will help Pokemon Overlapping issues.

                                                I messed around with a photo in Paint, it looks very crude, but the reason I made it was to get a point across of how you could spread things out so that they would still look good. Primarily what I did, was spread out the base that the pokemon are on and move them closer to the middle. I will try to post it again at a later date. To view the photo, please copy the link below and remove the spaces in it and replace the DOT's with a (.)
                                                http: // i296 DOT photobucket DOT com/albums/mm193/WandererTJ/new-size-double-battle-close2 DOT png

                                                On another note, I was hoping 1) that the controls could be listed not only at the game's start, but also in the save select screen, or even in a Read Me when you download the game. Also, 2) could you add more to the in-game options such as skipping animations or allowing to skip/speed up text.

                                                Is it possible to increase the screen size at all? It's pretty small on my screen, and while full screen would be a bit too much, I'd at least like to double what it is now.

                                                  gts is being a bit of a pain, for some reason its failing to save after a certain point and wreaking the save file.
                                                  I think i've managed to solve it though, after running tests for several hours

                                                  WandererTJ
                                                  1. Do the marts act as though they've given you the items? Does it just happen with pokeballs or do all items do it?
                                                  I can't replicate this with my version

                                                  2. Thanks, thats updated in the next version

                                                  3. I noticed this and has been sorted for the next version

                                                  4. Thats somewhat deliberate

                                                  5. Those errors are fixed in the next version.

                                                  As for the overlapping health bars, that has been sorted out.
                                                  Moving the bases aren't easy, i had a nightmare just getting them where they are now.

                                                  Screen size can't be increased. It would cause huge wasted space.
                                                  The screensize has double since the project originally began
