    HGSS - Kris as Female Protagonist
    Rom info:
    Hack of: Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver (USA)
    Language: English
    Current Version: 2.0
    Last Updated: 18th July, 2012

    Summary
    This is a simple hack of HGSS, where Lyra is replaced by Kris, the female protagonist introduced in Pokémon Crystal. There are a few minor glitches, but these are mostly negligible. All that is changed in this patch is the graphics, as well as any mention of 'Lyra' with 'Kris'.

    Kimba616 - DeviantArt – for making all the Kris sprites. Link

    S-Laughtur - DeviantArt – for making the full-art Kris sprite in the intro. Link

    Someone – a kind anon on 4chan sent me his work on a rom hack like this one, entitled 'Pokemon SpiritCrystal', from which I extracted Kris' backsprites from.

    Bugs:
    Spoiler:
    - The backsprite will temporarily revert to Lyra's palette when entering a Wild battle, though it corrects itself soon after. I don't quite know why, but it is exhibited in the video.
    - Trainer Card sprite and the overworld sprite shown when naming your character is still Lyra. I don't know where the sprites are located, but they will be changed if I can find them.
    - The large art mugshot in the intro is still Lyra, but this is because I haven't found one made for Kris. When one is made, I'll replace it.


    Changelog:
    Spoiler:
    - Version 2 - Most bugs fixed, added more supplemental sprites, and corrected compatibility with both versions.
    - Version 1 - pretty much everything except that which is listed in the Bugs section

      For a sprite hack, this works well. Kris' palettes and OW need slight changes, but no big problems.

      Apart from the slight changes I can see this being popular, alot of Gold & Silver fans will be made up with this so kudos to you for this project.

          Am I the only one who thinks there shouldn't have -had- to be a hack for this, and that Lyra shouldn't have even existed?

          Why do I see the meme instead of your post?
          Well... anyways... the majority of fans prefer Lyra maybe due to nostalgy or something so you may not be the only one but you belong to minority that don't like Lyra

            New patch is up! Changes detailed in changelog in original post.

            Interesting note: while I was searching the rom for the location of the mini-sprite used to denote the location of the player on the Town Map, I found a file with the icons of the playable characters, Raikou, Entei, and Suicine (as expected). But, instead of Lyra, it had a blue-haired female, which I assume is Kris. I'm not sure if this has been found by anyone before, but it's confirmation that Game Freak did in fact have Kris in the game at one point (or at least used her as a debug for the map icons). Just thought this was pretty cool :D The file is located in a/1/4/2 for anyone that's interested (in Tinke, it's file 22 IIRC). This Kris mini-icon is the one used in the patch, and is pictured in the original post.

            Let me know if you find any other bugs not noted in the original post!

              Thanks for the awesome patch. Kris has a much better character design than Lyra. Everything works great as far as I can see (Mr. Pokemon's house if you really need to know). However, I tried combining this with the pre-alpha of Moemon soulsilver and I ran into graphical glitches. The strange part is that this hack by itself doesn't have these glitches and neither does the moemon hack, but when I use this patch on the moemon hack, the totodile on the intro cutscene and the marill that Oak releases have palette problems. Does your hack change any of the palettes?

              Very, very cool! Good job with this; playing as Kris is really nostalgic since she was the "first" female character we could play as in the main Pokémon games, in Crystal. Well done, sir. I'm replaying the game just to be as Kris! :D

              Uh, so this patch is made for a minority of people who preferred Kris?

              So to answer your question, this is patch for majority of fans that like Kris more than Kotone.

                Which tools you use to find and hack Kris sprite in the intro?

                I don't know how to make me find and hack the image of intro.

                  I used Tinke to look through all the files in the rom (fun) and then Tile Molester/CrystalTile to change the files and palettes.

                        This is so cool, Kris shoulda been there instead of Lyra :I
                        I just wish I had a DS emulator that didnt run so slowly!

                          - Trainer Card sprite and the overworld sprite shown when naming your character is still Lyra. I don't know where the sprites are located, but they will be changed if I can find them.
                          - The large art mugshot in the intro is still Lyra, but this is because I haven't found one made for Kris. When one is made, I'll replace it.

                          Have you made any progress on squashing these bugs yet? I'm kind of sensitive to the idea of encountering them…

                            I'm sorry for talking on kinda a dead zone, but, I found a sprite set with a complete set for Kris except for Pokeathelon sprites...

                            I mean, if it's still be worked on and all. If you aren't, do you think you could help me hack into this game so I could try it myself...
                            Sorry for the spaces there...

                              If this thread is so dead, why don't you try to revive it by pinging the guy who started with a personal message or an e-mail and ask him if you can take over the project?
