Oh will the next version also enable the newer abilities as of gen four and possibly ability capsules? I would like it if the shroomish I mentioned in my game were to get Poison Heal in the update patch if I can get an ability capsule somewhere.

Either that or ditch the crap abilities altogether and replace them with the better ones in certain cases while making it so others gain the better ability upon evolving. This would add a nice extra challenge to the game if Shroomish were to start with Effect Spore but upon evolution gets Technician. As such those with a Breloom end up becoming a decent challenge to overcome.

Sorry for the delay on answering. I may add new abilities and attacks later but im not sure. I dont really know how atm.

And be sure to follow the new Instagram account @Pkmn_Blackened_Night I made for this hack. Updates, gameplay teasers and possible release dates will be added there most likely before here, as this site hates my ipod.
But for all you adoring fans, I have more updated screen shots with the new finished overworlds in them! Yay. Big thanks to anonyboy for helping with the sprites!

there's some gen 4 toolkits that work on gen 3 roms, just ask around
Yea but for Emerald? I havent seen any.:-/ From what I've heard though mrdollstreak is making an attack base for Emerald. Not sure if its 100% true though. So, mrdollstreak, if your reading this could ya confirm it?;P

Also indoor tiles are finnaly being inserted. Yay. So the first alpha should go faster now.

Yeah you're right, I almost forgot this was an emerald hack. But yes I actually can confirm MrDollSteak is working on that, I saw him remark on it when I asked him about ever possibly enabling the same thing for emerald. But he is the one to hear it from proper.

But with regards to working things with what you have right now, there's a program called G3T which allows you to edit everything about a rom, weither it's been patched or not. I sometimes mess with it on older hacks prior to the creation of the phys/special split patch made by doesn'tknowhowtoplay to enable the split and to change pokemon learnsets among other things.

Yea but the sequel will be based in fire red. Well hopefully he comes out with it after I finish my hack, that way no overwritten scripts for me.:)

Yea I've got it. Barely used it though.

I like how this hack looks but i must say it doesnt look good when theres a 4th gen sprite in a 3rd gen world or 3rd gen sprites in a 4th gen world. Lol i cant 100% tell the sprites are good but if u put a 3rd gen sprite next to a 4th gen sprites either the 4th gen sprites looks bigger and fat lol or the 3rd gen sprite looks puny id stick with the fourth gen sprites and just implement them. Also why are some of the sprites umm actually why is the females hat sprite digging into the guys head? Haha.
Anyways it still looks like a great hack good luck with this.

Well there are no 4th or 3rd gen sprites. Only 5th gen now. I may have a patch that changes them to 4th gen though.

Her hat just hates him I guess.:P

I think to make the game graphically better you should change the trees imo. I don't really like the way it looks.

Dude, there seems to be a lot of grammar errors everywhere. You gotta fix that :/
Good luck with this, and I really hope you're planning on making every OW the player's style, and not mixing them...

EDIT: I see, you're making them all one style. Well that's great, and looks awesome!

Thx. the grammar is being fixed. I just kinda rush sometimes and mess up.
Yea I'm gonna fix the OP screens cause people keep saying that.

I was thinking about it, but I don't have a tree I want to change it to.

Wow this is coming along wonderfully the updates show promise.
Thx. Been working pretty hard on it.

Alright guys so I think I'll release the first alpha early just containing less story. The first alpha will only go until Flower City. For those of you who haven't played the original release that is just a little before the 2nd gym town. All I need to do is fix grammar errors, make a few more sprite frames, a little testing to smash any bugs that may pop up and if I have time to fix the title screen.

Im glad to see that people still want this.:3


Update. The first alpha is almost done and will go up a little past the first gym. It will include 2 routes, 2 towns and a forest. Lost of trainer battles! And new trees!
Yes those stars glow.:)

Umm, I think the game froze as I was about to battle the first trainer in the first gym. I didn't save either and the Pokémon center's staff were all brain dead and answered to nobody. I'm pretty sure I got the latest patch.

From what I've seen so far, not too shabby, not quite amazing either. Mostly due to bugs though. The things I did enjoy were the big gen 5 sprites. Dunno if starters are final but Poochyena seem a little generic. I think anyone who played through gen 3 already trained it many times. I did like Shuppet though so that's what I choose.

Not sure what you have in mind for music either but may I suggest another battle theme? It's the gen 3 theme we all know and love, sure, but like with Poochyena I think many heard it to death already, especially with OR/AS being released last year. I'm personally more into the gen 4 or 5 theme but that may just be me.

I'd make the maps a tiny big bigger too, like the starter town, it feels a little claustrophobic. When speeding up the emulator I could almost not get back into my house to check if I had missed anything. ( Or rather see if I could heal there, which I couldn't. lol )

I think if you go over things again and tidy things up a little you'll have a good start for a hack, I want to continue playing whenever things come around and finishes up a bit. Don't give up!

Yea I had a few typos in the trainers scripts that locked up the player, they are fixed it the next alpha along with the pokecenter staff being fired and new professionals getting their jobs.

Hopefully I've removed every bug reported as I said above it will be fixed in the next alpha. The starters are final, but there will be nice twists to how the starters will be raised, so keep on the look out for that.

All the music will be changed in the next alpha. for now I am changing it to HG/SS music until more custom music is developed. But I havent heard from my music hacker for a while so idk.

Yea I was kinda feeling the same so the next alpha will have a bigger starting town and the already released maps are supposed to be small. Eventually they get bigger so just wait. Yea you can heal at your house but due to another typo your aunt refused to acknowledge your Pokemon.



Also guys, here's a little update on progress for the next alpha:
most of the routes and towns are already done on mapping and just need to be scripted, I fixed as many bugs as I can and now you don't have an evil looking reflection in the water! As you can see here:
The next alpha will feature another gym and bug fixes to the current gym.
Many tiles are being fixed to look a little better with the gen 5 size sprites
And I'm reworking the shadows on the sprites, I have over 3/4 of the done. the shadows will now be slightly smaller and a little more "dynamic" to go along with the movement..
