    I'm not really sure if it's a "resource" but, I'm quite pleased with it.

    ROM Hacking was getting frustrating for me. I've now stopped productions and writing the game from scratch in HTML 5.

    That means it will be playable in the browser, and across multiple devices such as the iPod touch.

      this is a nice skin/setting i made that pretty accurately simulates the look and feel of a Game Boy using VBA.

      There's more to it than the screen shot. I got the motion blur down too.

          Hello PC, today I want to share my latest work for Fire Red US in the effort to reaffirm that selling hacks is bad and copyright holders shouldn't bash rom hackers when their work give support to the franchise.

          Based on this project, I tweaked the code to allow these features:
          - Full palette support with 256 colors (8bpp)
          - LZ77 compressed tileset and tilemap that can be easily modified with unLZ
          - Smooth fade-in and fade-out

          The screen I made shows a short multilingual message, and the patch writes the data in the same place of the previous patch (0xA90000).

          Credit is not needed but surely appreciated!

                I won't be adding these to my sprite project for a while, considering how long it took to make, so I'm just going to post these for the time being:

                Backsprites will come in...a really long time :P

                  Sprites of what?

                  Meanwhile... Resized working Keldeo Resolution anyone?
                  I'll be doing other sprites too, like sprites of a different frame etc. Purely because default frames can be boring sometimes.

                    Idk why nobody has posted here yet, but this is a rom base by WesleyFG. I am not sure whether it has been posted yet but I think it isn't. Credits goes to WesleyFG for making the rom base and you can also credit me (not needed thou) for posting it here ;)

                    Of course, you guys care more about offsets. The images can be found in unLZ, but the palettes and raws are a bit harder to match up, so here, have some offsets.

                      Ok, guys here's a patch that has the Trainer Battle Fixing in Firered, just like in RSE.

                      Here's the patch.

                      Credit the following people:

                      And here are some Trainer Sprites from BW, DPP and HGSS... :)

                      Some of you may remember when I contributed to DarkRisingGirl's hack called Pokémon: Dark Rising by simply contributing a Wii U tile for the ROM hack. I'm sure many of you might want to implement it into your ROM hack as well, feel free to credit me for it (and possibly Nintendo)... even though it didn't take me long to make it. lol

                      Anyways, here it is. It's the Wii U, I've included the Wii U tile and a patch to show that the Wii U is implemented into the ROM itself. ;)

                      Patch for Pokémon FireRed Version; Game Code: BPRE; ROM version: 1.0

                      Here's the image that I made from scratch:

                      Oh and would you like to see it in the ROM right away? Then here you go, here's a screenshot for you:

                              Originally I made these just for the sole purpose of my ROM hack, but since I created them in DS-size graphics first, I figured I should let people use them for DS hacks as well (in my hack, I have these resized to GBA size. I made these sprites in DS size simply because it was easier to edit that way)

                              All sprites were made by me, so please give credit, since it took a long time to do. Both set of sprites use 16 colors.

                              EDIT: Also, if anyone is wondering why the bottom of the sprites are cut off, that's because in the 4th Generation Pokemon games, the last 7 row of pixels from the bottom are never actually shown on-screen. So if you insert these just as they are, everything will look completely fine. I found it unpractical to edit the part of the sprites that aren't even seen because they're covered up by the text bar.

                                Hi guys,
                                I have made a package with neoriceisgood Sprites.
                                I think 140 front sprites are finished. I don´t know exactly.
                                Here is the Download

                                If you want to use it you must at first ask neoriceisgood (Look at deviantart)
                                And then you have to give Credits to
                                Hackrex, S-L, Hek-el-Grande and neoriceisgood.

                                In the package you can find all front sprites of neoriceisgood indexed. But only 140 are resized.
                                Also you can find 1 Backsprite by Hek-el-Grande and Overworld Sprites for the fakemons

                                  Not perfect and could obviously use some touch-up; but for now, here is the preliminary attempt at a non-3D DS style sprite of Fennekin:

                                  Also, Classic-style Red:
                                  Hacks I'm currently working on (at a super slow pace):

                                  Chinpokomon Big/Small (would leave the titles, but apparently exceeded sig limit)

                                    Hello everyone. I've been working on a soundfont lately (you can kind of use it as a guideline if you want to replace the NDS pokemon music, or for your own mixing needs and what not). Anyway, it's the same instruments from Black and White 2. The spoilers will give you more info about it.

                                    Download Link

                                    Hear it in action!

                                    Readme file
                                    An all-in-one soundfont file with all the included instruments thus far. They adhere to the standard MIDI instrument patch numbers, including the drums. Available in both DLS and SF2 format. Also included are the individual instrument soundfonts.

                                    Best results with this soundfont can be used with the BASSMIDI driver. Load the soundfont into the program, and hit apply. If you have any editing
                                    programs open while you do this, you must close them and re-open. Make sure your MIDI editor is also mapped to the BASSMIDI driver.

                                    There are still many instruments that are missing. If you'd like to help (and I'll accept it willingly!) email me at [email protected], or message me on youtube (username: Roman8707) and make a list of songs (only the Black, White and their sequels' exclusive songs) and instruments you hear in them. More specifically, I'd prefer the instruments that are missing from this current soundfont.

                                    This spoiler is a list of instruments included.

                                    I was pointed to this thread to post about my soundfont. Also, if you'd like to help to complete this soundfont, all that you need to do is give me a few songs that include the instruments which are missing from the soundfont. You can contact me via PM, or read the "readme" spoiler. :)

                                        This is a patch for Pokemon Ruby that changes the font to the one used in Pokemon Emerald, and also enables Palette 12 to be used in tilesets.

                                          Since this patch can hardly be called a "hack" I'm going to post it here.

                                          This FR patch allows you to randomize each starter choice from a predetermined list. The default is each of the first three generations' starters, but with a little bit of scripting knowledge you can change or expand the list to fit your needs.

                                          This is not the same as a randomizer, which randomizes the starters but then is the same each time. The randomization is built into the game, meaning every time you play/reset, the starter choices will be different.

                                          Here is the patch.

                                          It uses the space between CFF000 and CFF600 or so, and changes the pokeball scripts in Oak's lab as well as gary's to work around the randomization.

                                          And here are some brief instructions on how to edit the pokeball scripts to make the list whatever you like (uses XSE 1.1.1):
                                          #dynamic 0x800000
