*NOTE* Hello, as I promised, I would release a thread for my hack.
For those of you who have not seen Pokemon Eruption before, or ever heard of it, please read the rest of this thread.


Cheap Introduction:
I am cooley! I started off just like you new guys, confused, and full of questions. So I started with hacking Gold. Apparently I would love to return to hacking Gold someday, but after I complete this project.
If you like hacks, you'll sure like this one. I don't really brag about my hack, but I can conlude from all the feedback, that it is a good one. My hack is not just a hack, it's a collection of ideas, a big CEO survey of other hacks, and some drama from real life. Yes, I get some of my ideas from real life situations...So??

Since I've released a BETA I've been getting really good feedback from other members of PC (Aside from Bugs ). I was surprised myself, because most of the events I made, I felt I could've done better. You guys have made me feel really good about hacking, and because of that I'd love to finish this hack, and make it just as you like it, really good with a cherry on top.
[The intro could've been better, but meh]

Information on this hack

Rom base: Pokemon FireRed (U)
Started: Early 2009
State: BETA v2.1 has been released to public.


What this hack is about

Imagine yourself in Silver's shoes. Yes, Silver from the Pokemon Gold/Silver and Pokemon Chronicles. You're a fourteen-year old boy born, and raised in Johto. You used to be a bad kid, but ever since you're fight with Jimmy(also from the Gold/Silver) at age thirteen, you've changed.

Now, in that decision to change, you'd like to start over. You're mom still thinks that it's 'exciting' to get you're first Pokemon, but why wouldn't she? She loves the new you! Well, you think it would be like the Pokemon show's on TV, where everything runs smooth. But in an effort to get your first Pokemon, you discover another Evil Organization, Team Knox!

They want to control every single Pokémon in the world, to make cash, dollars, yen, euro, etc. Either way you put it, it all comes down to money. They want to make the world fear them, and by doing that they become all-powerful. You see them stealing CYNDAQUIL at Walby Cave terrace, then and there you secretly made up your mind. You want to stop them at all costs! Your goal (without being told, in-game) is to stop them from gaining control of the Legendary Pokemon on an exciting adventure with tons of scripts, jaw-dropping events, and eye teasing tiles in Pokémon Eruption!

But that's not all folks, if more of the story were to be discussed it simply wouldn't be called a story. It would be a summary.
The story is just a general idea of what happens and why some things happen. However, MOST of the story gets expained hand-in-hand with the events that take place. How's that for epic?


There's a reason why I have these Awards.

Older, but somewhat considered Recent:













More Videos on the way!


Time to get your Pokemon!


Cyndaquil Event


New Tiles and Music!


The Legend of the four Ambers!



Why isn't this working?

NOT A BUG:
Cyndaquil evolves when you receive the national dex.
This is to ensure a balanced party, rather than one lvl 40 Typhlosion and lvl 5 pidgeys.
The game was designed to play as a Male (Silver), so pick male and choose Silver as a name

Bugs:

Running shoes does not work in some areas.
Some moderate script errors
Some minor script errors
Text mispellings/grammar errors
Start Menu background error on the bottom text


Oddities:
Cyndaquil OW too big
Walby Town tileset error on entering Route 1
No Silver Running shoes frames

->The hack is best played on "Medium" speed font. Can be adjusted in the Options Menu, >in-game.

          You don't get to choose, but the starter:
          Spoiler:
          cyndaquil
          is from Johto, if you wanted to know.

          I am more experienced, than I was before, so if a problem occurs, i most likely can fix it.

          What do you mean it doesn't look right?

          Thanks! And that pokeball(ITEM) is part of the event. Remember that I said that I will try to design them to look real, so that item is actually very small, so I didn't want it to be invisible to you

              I'm talking about the stairs.
              They should be 2 or 3 tiles wide. Not changing the width right in the middle.

                  The project is very interesting I like the history and of its development
                  but I think on the new tiles, my new improved tiles
                  they would be better I will show a mapeado, for you to see as they would be the combination of the tiles, with improvements in some tiles and palletas, mainly of the tree main of the project that now have a palleta much better than it combines with the soil and the mountain a worked better well.
                  I think would be still better the hack if you are used those.

                      Ah so you've made the thread while i was asleep, huh?
                      xD
                      Anyway it looks really good!
                      I'm playing it when it's realeased, because i haven't seen the other route scripts.
                      Anyway the NEW tiles look cool Wesley, i think Cooley will use them.

                        from the screenshots, it looks like there's a man in your house who's your dad. But the thing is that Giovanni is silver's dad.

                        they would be better I will show a mapeado, for you to see as they would be the combination of the tiles, with improvements in some tiles and palletas, mainly of the tree main of the project that now have a palleta much better than it combines with the soil and the mountain a worked better well.
                        I think would be still better the hack if you are used those.

                        I'd be glad to use them Are they the same palettes as before?

                        Anyway it looks really good!
                        I'm playing it when it's realeased, because i haven't seen the other route scripts.
                        Anyway the NEW tiles look cool Wesley, i think Cooley will use them.
                        Yep, I will. And the Alpha should be lengthy enough for everyone to play. Also thanks!
                        Yep I will. Also, thanks!

                        But you just gave me an idea for a long-term event, wanna guess what
                        ?

                          Wow, Cooley.
                          The Hack has completely changed from Before.

                          I hope there won't be anymore restarting on this.

                              Well, I'm trying to fix the first one.
                              The second screen about totodile, is not a bug. They have to really go out and find all the totodile Lol
                              The people that freeze, they've all been given scripts
                              And the event by Walby Cave, has been remade to be bugless.

                              Btw, here are some updates.
                              Gary? Why is he there???
