Thought I would post some previews over here. They are in black-and-white for a couple of reasons.
1) less of a spoiler, since it leaves more to imagination
2) some of these tilesets are still being finalized so I don't have them set up in the game yet.

Anyway, seemed like time to bump this thread a little. I haven't posted here much, but I've been working on the the tileset updates lately. Here are some previews of a couple of things.


The Pokemon Center design. Very similar to what it was in the last update, since I'd already messed with that tileset, but nicer. Credit for the heal machine goes to RED, all other devamps/customs are by me.


The upstairs for Route Gates. I'm planning to add these back in for the ones that had them in Gen I and III if I have time/maps. Not super important, but for continuity's sake it feels weird to have an entire floor of a building disappear between generations. All devamps/customs by me. A few tiles taken from original Red Version.


Cycling Road concept. Still working on this a bit. All devamps by me.


The snowy Pokemon Center design. And a snowy house. Devamps/customs by me.

I have more done too, but I don't want to spoil all of it before release. I'll show off more later, and I'll have actual in-game shots closer to release instead of these black-and-white previews while I'm still finalizing designs.

These look great! Only problem I see is on cycling road is that maybe it should have more of a border or something between the road part and the dirt looking part.

Thanks! After your suggestion, I made a border tile really quick and I think it looks better than without it. What do you guys think?

Hey man, I love the hack.
I'm just curious, where do I get Mudkip? And what level does Piloswine evolve?

@CrunchBuggy - In the 2012 version, you receive Mudkip in a trade in Pewter Museum. However, Mudkip's family are removed from this year's version. It didn't feel right to add 1 line of Hoenn starters without adding the other starters, and there wasn't a good reason for them to be there anyway. If I remember Piloswine evolves at level 42 or so in the 2012 version. I've altered the levels that the Swinub family learn moves and evolve for this year's release though, because you can find them at much lower levels than you could in Gold so it makes sense for them to learn things around the level you find them. I'll try to remember to comment on the updated level that he evolves when I release this year's version.

@Winter Wonderland - Ha! I'll be completely honest, I didn't know you existed when I came up with that tagline :p It was based completely on the song "walking in a winter wonderland". That's pretty funny though.

Oh, I know. I just thought it was hilarious. I sung it that way, too. "Traaainin' in a win-ter won-derland"

The nostalgia that comes from the familiar Team Rocket battle theme is palpable.
Anyway, this hack is great. More power to you, Mateo.

Glad you're enjoying the current version. Hopefully you'll enjoy the new release even more when it comes out!

In that version, let's see. I think I tried to give him a similar moveset to what he can learn in the games he existed in, using moves that were around in Gen II. I think I've changed it a bit since the last release though so hard to say for sure what he knew in the 2012 version. When I release the new version mid/late December, I'll also post the skillsets for all the added Pokemon as well as info on Pokemon with new or updated evolutions to avoid confusion. Something I should have done with the last version, but its a little late for that now.

------------------------

Also, while I'm here, let me post some more teaser pics that I shared on Facebook earlier:



As you can see, its the inside of the Ruins of Alph chambers. I've also drawn the tiles in such a way that you can walk behind the top parts of those walls (like I described in my "[Gen II] Walk Behind Things" tutorial that should be posted on PHO.)


And here's another tileset teaser for you guys:



This would be used for the Power Plant, Dept. Store Basement, a couple of gyms, that kind of thing. It doesn't show off everything the tileset can do though but like I say, its a teaser

Also, What do you guys think of this cave tileset I'm working on? Does it look good, bad, ugly, etc? The dirt/ground would be brown, and the mountain/rock parts would be grey.



Here is another thing from the Cave tileset, for the cliff gate in Cianwood City. Not sure how I feel about the huge sign though. I know it had one in HG/SS, but it feels like it will be out of place here almost. (In the 2012 version, I just used a Pikachu poster on the wall in that map).




And here is one last teaser: The research building at the Ruins of Alph (this can be considered a beta map, it might look a bit different in the final version).



I think that's all the new teaser images I have lying around for right now. Let me know what you guys think if you don't mind.

Hey Mateo! I'm back and I'm waiting for this hack to be completed.

I am waiting for this and for Prism. Unfortunately, Prism won't be finished this year. Do you have any date for this hack? Perhaps this Christmas?

Thanks!

I can't say any particular date, but my goal is to have it ready a little before Christmas. In the past I tried to release a beta on Christmas but with different time zones and other things its hard to release it at a time that is satisfactorily "Christmas Day" for everyone. Plus delays can come up. So I'm shooting for a little before Christmas, maybe around 20 December or so. But hard to say for sure.

Nope, sorry but its against the rules to upload roms here. Only patches. You can download the patch on your computer or a friend's computer, patch it, and then copy the rom to your phone or whatever though.

I've been reading comments for hours. Man, it's so late already...

Mateo, first of all, great job you're doing. Yeah, I haven't played the hack, but for what I've seen AND read, it has to be awesome. I can't believe I didn't know of this earlier. Oh, and thanks A LOT for adding Leafeon and Glaceon. I love the eeveelutions, you just made my day (I suck at hacking, so I can't add them myself).

It's funny that I just found about this hack and this is the first time I comment on a forum (no, really, it's the very first time), and I started playing pokemon games like seven months ago. Hope nothing delays the christmas release, even though I just started waiting for it.

Oh, and as a little suggestion, a pokemon you might add... In Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team, Absol appears in a snowy area. I guess it fits the theme well and since it doesn't evolve, it shouldn't give much trouble. Besides, that's my favorite pokemon

Thanks, I'm honored that your first post was to comment on my hack! I'm still aiming for a Christmas release, and hopefully nothing will delay it. But I've decided that just in case something does come up, I'm focusing on getting Johto done first before I do Kanto. That way if something does come up, I can release it on Christmas with Johto ready and then update it whenever I get Kanto finished if need be. I hope that won't happen, but then again I did get really ambitious with this update. In all honesty it feels more and more like a reboot than just a "new update" since I've been changing things throughout and (as you've seen) completely overhauling the graphics. But yeah, I plan to still be ready to get a release out around Christmas, even if it isn't the full update yet.

Absol is a neat idea. I think I still have devamped sprites of him lying around that either me or Pyro made for Sterling Silver back in the day. He might be fun to add. I was also kicking around the idea of (if I have time) replacing Chansey with Audino, but that left me with Blissey's spot unused. So if I did that, Absol could fill that extra slot nicely. Just have to see what I decide on and how time goes.
