Pokemon: Dissension is no longer going to be updated here on the PC. I will still be working on it, but it is going off the radar here for a while. I hope you all keep watching this progress as it progresses, which can be done by watching my DA account for visual updates.

Introduction

Pokemon Dissension started in early 2009 as a ROM Hack of Fire Red. It has since evolved into being created as a ROM Hack of Fire Red, Ruby, and is now meeting the world of RMXP.

Pokemon: Dissension Awards
Spoiler:


Pokemon Dissension is a game that will take you to the new Region of Koen, which will hold many mysteries, adventures, and challenges as you work to become a Pokemon master.


Greetings
Spoiler:


For those who are interested in knowing who I am and what I am about, this spoiler is for you!

My name is Chris, I have been working with game modification for over 6 years. I recently started my first ROM Hack which has since evolved into not only a ROM Hack, but also a standalone game for RMXP.

I have done many projects all of which I am happy to say have been completely finished and set for release. I have done modifications for many games such as, The Elder Scrolls Series, The Jedi Knights Series, Diablo and Diablo II, World of Warcraft, Heroes of Might and Magic, Age of Empires, and Fable: The Lost Chapters.

I am a dedicated person and do not take the idea of vaporware lightly. I hate to see a game halt development for any reason and because of this, I dedicate myself to my projects.

I am a noobish graphics artist but enjoy every minute of it, and using RMXP is going to be a great experience even in that respect.

    Brilliant Chris, just brilliant. I loved this as a rom hack. And this looks even better than as a game! GL Chris!

      Fascinating. Not only is this game being made as hacks of two different games at once, it's also an RMXP project! I can definitely say that I've never seen its like before.

      ...However. I do kind of wonder how this game will tie in with the other two versions-- will they all be the same? Personally, I think it would be a lot cooler if the games were all slightly different (ex. they took place in different periods of time, or featured different main characters, or otherwise told different stories), because what's the point spending all your time making three games that are essentially identical? Also, the plot... doesn't really wow me. At all. I can't boldcomment because it's in an image, but... it really doesn't surpass mediocre: "strange phenomena" and "mysterious emotionless Pokemon"? What in this plot hasn't been used in the official games? :/

      In short: your game is aesthetically very snazzy and has a good track record too, but what's the point of it all? Is it actually an enjoyable game? Does it live up to its reputation? I have high hopes for you as a developer, but I won't automatically assume greatness from a couple of screens and informed features.

        I think that the image with the plot is intentionally vague, so that Slayer can tweak small details.

        Each version will have its differences. The Idea of 2 ROM Hack versions is the fact that you will need to trade from both versions to experience the game in every detail. Secrets can be unlocked through trading from ROM to ROM.

        The RMXP version is the Region of Koen in depth, the region is brought to life by its inhabitants and its locations. It ties both the ROM Hack versions together and allows the player to experience more of Koen than they would get via playing a ROM Hack. The different time frames are not going to be implemented, BUT there will be a sense of time travel within the RMXP version, details will come at a later date, I am trying to avoid spoilers :D.

        As far as the plot, I am not a writer, I am not good at spicing up the general plot outline. It sounds Nintendoish because that is what I wanted it to sound like. It will be spiced up and allow more detail when I get someone to sum the plot up in it's entirety without giving out information that is a dead giveaway to a possible ending. That will come when I revamp this thread with CSS and more detail :D.

        Don't ever assume greatness, regardless of who is developing it, assume the possibility of greatness. Which is not directed to you and your remark, but to readers and onlookers as a whole. I am not looking to wow people, I am looking to make a game for people to play, love, and even hate.

            What's up with that weird effect on the images (this kinda of semi circle of light)? Is that just part of the post, I'm assuming they are not in game- if that effect is i the game, take it out. Of course I'm sure you got this comment in your ROM hack thread, but get rid of that R/S/E overworld sprite- I'm guessing it's a place holder.
            I like the look of your first post- I don't think it needs any generic CSS like every other topic has- if that comment is any use to you lol.

            Chesu complains about that image effect as well, it is not in game it is just a glossy aesthetic touch to the image.

            The NPC's that are stock NPC's are placeholders :D.

            I will update the media section once a week maybe twice, if an when it is possible.

            Generic CSS? I work with webdesign, I am sure it wouldn't be generic. But we will see, one way or another it will have a bit more flare to it.

                  As Slayer said, I've been "complaining" (it's not complaining ) about the effect since the beginning. It's just something he does in Photoshop to, I don't know, spice up the screenshots? As for the R/S/E sprite, this is the first time it's been seen... when I saw it, I commented on how R/S/E sprites seem to be looking up at the player, compared to FR/LG-style sprites. Rest assured, it's temporary.

                      Yeah I was just checking about that effect and NPC sprite.
                      As for your repsonse to my "generic CSS" remark, it's not a bash at you. I don't know you, nor did I know you have interests in web design, it's more about, just use what you have now (your images). What you have now is a real clean look and very presentable to members who get an impression from your game by reading the first post.
                      Speaking of "generic"- this is something I always add.... Good luck

                      As for your repsonse to my "generic CSS" remark, it's not a bash at you. I don't know you, nor did I know you have interests in web design, it's more about, just use what you have now (your images). What you have now is a real clean look and very presentable to members who get an impression from your game by reading the first post.
                      Speaking of "generic"- this is something I always add.... Good luck
                      :D I know. I was just stating that CSS is one of those things where generic can sometimes be an overused term, I prefer the term Basic.

                      I intended on keeping the same style, just implementing it into CSS so it is easier to update and a bit cleaner, as some people use different forum styles, a CSS layout would help blend it in for everyone so it looks nice even to those who are on a darker style and so forth.

                            Why do people think there are Fakemon in this game?

                              Because of the way you originally phrased what Team Dawn was doing... that they were summoning, "new Pokemon". Most people took that to mean original Pokemon.

                                With the strange appearance of strange, dark pokemon in the region, trainers take their owth training paths. Are these heartless Pokemon tools, or are they Pokemon who need to be shown the way? Choose between being a Shadow Trainer or a devoted Pokemon Trainer in your adventure.

                                Does this mean you can choose to be the bad guy because it gets boring playing the hero all the time

                                I wouldn't really say it is being a bad guy, I would say it is a different approach to training your pokemon.

                                The player will have options to 'purify' a shadow pokemon. Depending on if you have shadow pokemon or not, some people might talk differently to you.

                                After all, some might consider shadow pokemon to be abominations :D

                                Please keep in mind the idea of Shadow Pokemon in Dissension is not the same as in other official games.
