      Wow, it took me a while to finish reading everything (alright, I admit that I skipped the tips & tricks part a bit as I wasnt that interested in expanding roms yet ), but still, it was cool to read those reviews.

      Hope you can be able to put more sections into it in the future, everyone would love that. But meanwhile, it's good to see that it gets to be more stable (in every aspect), I guess the team is working well.

      Alright, I'll be waiting for the next one. Good luck, guys!

        I actually just noticed this thead

        This is pretty cool, and I love how you included interviews with the newsletter. And maybe you can post a tip/trick that most people can do (I'm terrible with hex) and don't know of. Like how you can select more than 1 block at a time in A-Map.

        Good luck with this.

            Issue 5 - Sunday, 29 September 2008
            Introduction
            Opening words

            Argh, damn it! I was hoping to get it in before Monday but its 12:33 PM as I'm typing this. Lol, I just realized daylight savings started today, I made it! I've decided to keep the rating descriptions in all issues from now on for easy reference. For the time being they will be in the Hack News section. We've got our first ever actual report courtesy of Visual this issue so make sure you check that out.

            This weeks interview turned into a sort of one sided debate which gave me an idea. How about having a debate via IM on things in the hacking community? I think it would be quite interesting. For example we could discuss the pros and cons of making teams/rom bases/tools etc. It'll be quite difficult to pull of I think. Please post your comments.

            Hacking News
            Staying current with the rom hacking scene

            Production of Pokémon: Tree of Peace Slowed

            Due to school being too hectic during the week, production has been slowed to weekends only on Tree of Peace. Kawaii, Inc. assures that he will continue to work on the hack at every available opportunity on such days.

            Pokemon: The Dragon Lineage makes a comeback
            Most people won't remember since the thread was closed a couple of days after making it but I have another hack in the works. The Dragon Lineage will be based around Lance and Claire. It is no longer set in Johto. It is completely different to the ideas I had before. If you want to see the first town take a look in the Map Rating Thread. I'll open the thread sometime this week.

            Hack Rating System
            RHN will follow a standardised rating system similar to that of IGN, ratings and their meanings are described below.
            Spoiler:
            10.0 to 9.0 - Masterful
            Its almost impossible to make a hack that is perfect, but ratings in this range get pretty close. These hacks are flawless in all aspects of hacking, they are innovative and engaging.

            8.9 to 8.0 - Impressive
            Hacks that we feel are outstanding and are exceptional in at least one aspect will receive ratings in this range. Hacks that we feel are worthwhile and that everyone will find enjoyable. You'd need to put in a lot of effort to get this rating.

            7.9 to 7.0 - Good
            An excellent hack that is let down by a one or two major problems. Above average in all aspects but just missing a few things it needs to be great. Not amazing but has potential.

            6.9 to 6.0 - Passable
            Hacks that are just above average. Nothing to really get excited about. Nothing particularly horrible about the hack but nothing all that great either.

            5.9 to 5.0 - Mediocre
            A hack that provokes no emotion, standard, run-of-the-mill whatever you want to call it, these hacks are as average as they come.

            4.9 to 4.0 - Lackluster
            Hacks that do not have enough effort put into them. Probably not worth the attention for the time being. Has some potential to be better, but not enough to become something spectacular.

            3.9 to 3.0 - Poor
            Hacks that are flawed in all areas, most likely caused by inexperience by the author rather than effort. Not worth checking out regularly, will probably be cancelled the next week.

            2.9 to 2.0 - Bad
            Hacks that we recommend you avoid, not worth playing. Might have a few interesting ideas but ultimately is just very poorly executed. Major flaws in all aspects.

            1.9 to 1.0 - Terrible
            A hack we believe should not have had its thread accepted. These hacks are not even worth browsing over. These hacks are usually made by people trying to achieve internet stardom.

            0.9 to 0.0 - Abysmal
            Hacks that are not even truly hacks, more like edits. A few small changes to the original game, achievable in mere minutes.

            Spotlight on the Hack of the Week

            Pokémon Distant [Link]
            Hack Author: Disturbed
            Reviewed By: dshayabusa

            Pokemon Distant is a hack by Disturbed aka Maraudah from the Map Rating Thread. This hacks main appeal is by far the mapping. Marudah is a great mapper but his maps seem to be hindered by his choice of tiles. Don't get me wrong, Don Patch's tiles look great but if you're going to use his tiles you have to adapt to them. It doesn't just mean new palletes you'd also need to develop a different style of mapping. If you look at the maps made my Don Patch his mapping is very unique, not even close to what Nintendos looks like yet very professional.

            According to the credits, Megiddo has done the scripts so far. Megiddo is a great scripter but it would be nice to see Disturbed making his own scripts. The story is quite interesting, the start certainly is unique and executing it will be easy yet very effective. There are also going to be 3 starters instead of one, its an interesting idea and I'll reserve judgement until the first beta. Most of the other features are pretty standard. It still needs some work but I can tell it'll be quite interesting hack to watch.

            Hack Review
            Hacks in review

            Pokémon Black and White [Link]
            Hack Author: ҳ̸ҲRichie
            Reviewed By: thethethethe
            Reviewer's Rating: 9.1/10

            I'm usually a bit uneasy when looking at Spanish hacks. They usually have amazing graphics, average scripts, fail in the English Translation and have a bland storyline. Never Black and White shattered almost all of my previous perceptions on Spanish Hacks.

            Graphics is Spanish hacks seem to always be impressive. I don't know how, but they seem to always have the most amazing sprites with near perfect palettes to get a highly visually appealing hack. I'd rate this hack as one of the most beautiful hacks I've ever seen.

            The storyline is somewhat reminiscent of the Final Fantasy games. The player is searching for his lost identity and many plot twists only make this more difficult. Working together with the storyline, the scripting is consistent. When I look at hacks, the scripting is what I tend to enjoy looking upon the most. From what I saw the scripts don't show anything totally outstanding. They only do just enough to compliment the storyline. I'd be much happier, even if it's pointless, is just to see one script that blows me away. Just something that stands out from the rest, and is an unforgettable event.

            The thing I was overjoyed to see was that the text was not lost in translation. Many translated hacks seem to lose their point in their translation to English, and the storyline therefore becomes hard to follow. This hack did not fall into that category. In fact the translation was near perfect. I'm not sure how it appeared in Spanish, but in English, the text appeared almost of a Shakespearian dialect, which is the perfect fit for the storyline. We have text in the style of the cryptic language of Shakespeare working together with the search for the unknown identity found in the storyline. It just shows how well thought out this hack really was.

            This is a remarkable hack which is truly worth playing. This is one hack you can't afford not to play.

            CSS Cool?
            An insider's report by Visual

            CSS Designs, we all love them, we all have them, but whats the point behind them? Most of us just want a fancy presentation that looks nice and simple, some just want to copy others. First, lets get to know what CSS is a bit. CSS is a type of code, just like HTML but it is allowed in threads and signatures because theres no danger behind it. It's nice and easy to understand, basically you create layers on top of layers, first off you would start with a background, add a border and some text and you have a CSS box. Which is where the rest is developed from. But it does look quite appealing.

            Modern day hacking has made a sudden jump into CSS, requesting it from other people or just taking it from their threads. I do find it funny though, hackers have spent so much time learning how to script and change tiles but cannot be bothered to learn some simple CSS. But it doesn't matter that much, it still all appeals to us, we still find it nice, but it does seem to be becomming more un interesting.

            CSS is evolving like our whole civilization, months ago you wouldn't find it anywhere, whenever you did you thought someone had hacked into their signatures and added those boxes, now they're in everyones signatures and threads and still dramatically increasing. But pretty soon something new will be discovered and people will start using that instead, and while that new discovery increases CSS will slowly fade away, but i'd pay to see that happen.

            A cool new trick that you may not have known about

            This weeks tips come from HackMew. This time its all about msgboxes. Below is a description, script example and in-game shot of the different msgbox types.

            0x2

            Spoiler:
            Description:
            This is the msgbox used for normal people. Using this type means that you don't need to use the lock, faceplayer or release commands.

            Script:
            #org @start
            msgbox @hello
            boxset 0x2
            end

            #org @hello
            = Hello my name is dshayabusa.


            In-Game:

            0x3

            Spoiler:
            Description:
            Used for signs etc. No Lock or faceplayer effect. Only shows the sign textbox when used on an actual sign.

            Script:
            #org @start
            msgbox @sign
            boxset 0x3

            Spoiler:
            Description:
            A normal msgbox except for the fact that it does not close. Command 68 must be used to close it. No lock or faceplayer effect.

            Script:
            #org @start
            msgbox @hello
            boxset 0x4

            end

            #org @hello
            = Is this statement false?


            In-game:

            Spoiler:
            Description:

            Interview
            An in-depth chat with... Megiddo
            Spoiler:
            (3:11:48 PM) Malin: So what first attracted you to hacking?
            (3:12:20 PM) Adam: The commonly heard shiny gold. I think I first saw it on youtube.
            (3:13:22 PM) Malin: And did you immediately think, I want to do that too?
            (3:14:14 PM) Adam: Yep and my love of video games also influenced me.
            (3:14:51 PM) Malin: Interesting.
            (3:15:01 PM) Malin: What aspect of hacking do you find most enjoyable?
            (3:15:17 PM) Adam: Scripting.
            (3:15:38 PM) Malin: I see, and what do you find most challenging?
            (3:16:09 PM) Adam: Getting the perfect graphics.
            (3:16:38 PM) Malin: Ah yes thats always a challenge.
            (3:17:51 PM) Malin: You've been in many hacking teams before, what in your opinoin is most effective? Hacking in a team or individually?
            (3:19:00 PM) Adam: I believe hacking individually is most effective. There's not the issue of waiting on someone else. You also learn much more and gain experience.
            (3:20:39 PM) Malin: Good point, its always frustrating when you have to wait for someone to finish something before you can start.
            (3:23:34 PM) Malin: What are your opinions on the rom hacking community today?
            (3:25:31 PM) Adam: I think that there are a lot of original hacks out there. Whether they be on pc or elsewhere. The community is large and diverse. Although, I think some people should wait to post their hacks until they have done a substantial amount of things.
            (3:26:42 PM) Adam: The programmers do a great job with their tools, which really helps everyone.
            (3:27:13 PM) Malin: But aren't tools sometimes the cause of problems in the community?
            (3:27:51 PM) Adam: Only in parts, though perhaps we should create a new system to control the flames.
            (3:29:12 PM) Adam: I know this is an issue in pokemon hacking.
            (3:30:25 PM) Adam: It would take awhile to make a map in hex.
            (3:30:43 PM) Adam: or manually create a sprite
            (3:31:57 PM) Malin: True, what about rom bases though?
            (3:33:56 PM) Adam: Rom bases dock off originality, but provide newbies a good start. I don't find them that bad. It's a personal choice and not something that speeds things up exponentially.
            (3:34:19 PM) Adam: They're less usefull than tools.
            (3:38:30 PM) Malin: What do you think about the vast amount of tutorials that are available now? Doesn't it prevent creative thinking if everything its already written out for you?
            (3:40:34 PM) Adam: I agree it does do that. A scripting tutorial is needed as it's not the easiest to learn without any sort of explanation on usage and what not
            (3:41:03 PM) Adam: Once you learn some scripting it's easier to figure out unknown things without a tutorial.
            (3:41:14 PM) Adam: But in the beginning
            (3:46:06 PM) Malin: What attracts you most to a hack when you're browsing PC?
            (3:47:03 PM) Adam: At first glance there is only the name and posts. Out of the two the name usually catches me most.
            (3:47:50 PM) Malin: By posts do you mean the number of posts or the people who have posted?
            (3:51:02 PM) Adam: The last poster and the number.
            (3:51:23 PM) Malin: Interesting.
            (3:51:41 PM) Malin: Is there a hack you'd like to recommend for our readers?
            (3:52:20 PM) Adam: I enjoyed playing Liquid Ocean.
            (3:54:01 PM) Malin: Who wouldn't?
            (3:54:05 PM) Malin: Any last words?
            (3:54:27 PM) Adam: Good luck to all.

            The guest recommendation this week goes to Liquid Ocean:

            Closing Notes
            Some house keeping

            This segment is starting to become redundant. I actually have nothing to say. If you have anything you would like the rest of the community to know about PM me and I'll put it in the Hack News segment. I think having 1 or 2 reviews per issue is best, anymore will cheapen the concept of it. Uhh, yeah, so thats it. Oh, also thanks to whoever changed the name of the thread, if you could just do that whenever you have the time that'd be great. It would save me having to PM you and you having to read it each time.

            this is an intresting news letter and one of the tips and tricks really helped me in scripting.
            there are 2 great hack viewed on the news letter but there is no rating for pokemon distant
            even there is no alpha or beta yet there still should be a rating for the hack

                    If thethethethe reviewed Black and White, and openly praised it, as well as saying "It's a remarkable hack that is truly worth playing", why, I must ask, did he give it .5\10?

                    And yes, I do know it was a typo, that he gave it 9.3. I just wanted to point it out - not that it matters.

                      I thought I gave it 9.1. I assume it's just been left over from the previous issue when I gave Bloody Diamond 0.5.
                      A debate sounds great, but it'd probably need two sessions, like twelve hours apart, to give most people a fair chance at catching it.

                      EDIT: Just noticed a little typo in the tips and tricks. callstd 0x4 is closed by command #68. You wrote command #86.

                      I would love to be in a debate about the pros and cons of this community. If you ever do have one be sure to include me.

                      This weeks news letter was very nice. I enjoyed reading it, keep it up.

                      even there is no alpha or beta yet there still should be a rating for the hack
                      I'm going to have to disagree. Without a playable version you can't really tell what the hack is going to be like, even maps are hard to judge when there are only screenshots available.

                      It'll probably be done on MSN so someone would just invite everyone to chat. The time is a really big problem, I can do it at pretty much anytime since I've got school holidays.

                      Two sessions? I think we could do it in one, if we had it around this time most people would be online then.

                      This debate idea is going to be quite difficult to pull off. We should discuss numbers and who is involved in the team thread.

                        NIce to read this :D But only one thing it was a little short in my opinion XD
                        But who cares as long as it's fun it's alright :D:D
                        Can't wait for Issue 6 :D BOL!

                        btw the debate thing seems nice :D It would be very educational (not sure if I wrote it good) and very fun to :D
                        But i've got an idea! What if you make some sort of price like HoTW but then Map of the Week It seems like something nice and just too small for it's own thread so you could incorporate it in the RHN :D Just an idea

                        Well again BOL!

                              Yes! This is great, wonderful! The debate idea sounds nice, and It'd be cool to be part of it! I liked the interview, it was nice. Anyways, BOL!

                                That was great! I enjoyed reading it.
                                I completely agree with the rating on Pokemon Never, I loved that beta!
                                I also agree with the CSS thing.

                                The debate idea sounds cool too! I can't wait for that!
                                The interview was alright, I mean, it seemed more like a simple chat than an interview...but it was better than before (and megiddo is cool).

                                Can't wait for the next one!

                                Mm, this thing seems to get better with every issue. I especially liked the tips section this week; it was nice to have the Boxset command fully explained. And you guys lengthened the interview as well. Anyways, overall a great issue and I'm looking forward to the next one (but don't rush it!).

                                well, I enjoyed reading the newsletter.
                                It's longer than the previous one, made my eyes a bit sour.

                                anyways, a debate sounds nice.
                                it'll be complicated, but it'll be fun to read.

                                about the tips and tricks, are they applicable for this format as well?
                                Code:
                                boxset 2
                                boxset 3
                                boxset 4
                                though I also agree that all spanish hackers have really amazing graphics... :D

                                continue the great work, though...

                                  boxset 0x2; boxset 2; callstd 0x2; callstd 2
                                  They are all the same thing.

                                  There are a bunch of nifty tips in Advance Map's readme, for anyone who wants to know.

                                    Wow, I have to admit - very good layout. The description is just amazing. Good ideas, such as interviews etc.
