    -INFORMATION-
    Hack of:
    Silver


    Hack Name:
    AncientEmerald


    Introduction:
    Hello, my name is Melash. You may remember me from Awakened Legends. After that project was cancelled, I’ve been practicing hacking Gold and Silver, and I now believe I’m ready to publish my second official hack. It seems many people have forgotten what a “Hack” should be. It should not be a few map changes, a several tile edits, and a new script or two. It should be much, much more than that. This hack will be an actual “Hack”, if not more. In fact, you may not even be able to recognize the original Silver Version I started out with. Now then, welcome to AncientEmerald.


    Storyline:
    Many of you have played Emerald, and enjoyed an adventure throughout the Hoenn region. If you have, then prepare to relive it again, but this time in a Second Generation game. This hack, in simple terms, is a devamp of Emerald onto Silver. You will be able to play through Emerald again, but this time on the GBC, with an extended storyline and more features. You will be able to save Prof. Birch, defeat team Magma and Aqua, defeat Wally in Victory Road, and continue the story after Emerald is over.

    Features:
    New Graphics -Every tileset redone from scratch. All sprites are new also
    New Maps -Yes, prepare to relive the Hoenn region.
    New Pokemon -All Hoenn Pokemon, and some Sinnoh Pokemon added in.
    Completely new scripts -Everything will be rescripted from scratch.
    New HM’s -DIVE will be making an appearance to this hack.
    New TM’s -A brand new TM set that resembles Emerald's.
    New Items -Many new items, replacing old and unused ones.
    New Attacks -Many new attacks have been added in.
    New Music -Several tracks have been imported from various games.
    Two regions -Hoenn, and part of another region.

    ....and much, MUCH more!

    Screenshots:

    Here we go, proof that I’m actually doing work until I release a beta. Please note that the graphics are still a work in progress.





    Please note that these screenshots are outdated, but may be somewhat valid:

    -Q&A-
    This hack is a very big project, so I’ve realized that many people will be asking questions. Here is a list I’ve complied of questions that have been asked, or questions that will probably be asked.


    Spoiler:
    Q: So, will this hack have all the same maps as the original Emerald did?
    A: Yes, you will have the WHOLE Hoenn experience.

    Q:Will all the Hoenn Pokemon be added in?
    A: Yes. There will also be other Pokemon added in, including some from Sinnoh.

    Q: Okay, so you’re adding Hoenn Pokemon in. Are all their stats, and other stuff also be correct?
    A: Of course.

    Q: Will all the legendary Pokemon events still be in?
    A: Yes. Several other legendary events will also be added in.

    Q: Will there be a gender choice in this hack?
    A: As for now, no. However, if an experienced coder will help me out, it could become a reality.

    Q: Can we still expect a return of all the Emerald Characters?
    A: Yes, and a few new faces.

    Q: Is HM08, Dive, added in?
    A: Of course. Wait until you see what it looks like underwater....

    Q: Wait, there’s two regions in Gold! Will there be two regions in this hack?
    A: Yes, and no. Hoenn will be divided into East and West Hoenn. However, the East side of Hoenn seems a bit empty, so you will be able to travel to part of another region.

    Q: Will there be new music tracks added into this hack?
    A: Eventually, yes. If someone would like to give me the tracks from the original Ruby, I will insert them.

    Q: What about Secret Bases?
    A: It'll be awhile until the beta reaches that. However, it's something I'm looking into right now.

    Q: When will you release a beta?
    A: Read the Beta Section.

    Q: Can I become a Beta Tester?
    A: Read the Beta Section


    -BETA SECTION-
    Beta Releases:

    As of right now, I have not released a beta. I will release one soon, but I cannot make a definitive date, yet. I can tell you that I will release a short Demo before the Beta, so you won’t have to wait as long for a full beta release. When will that be released? You won’t have to wait too much longer.....

    Beta Progresses:
    Okay, here I’m going to show about how far each beta will most likely go to. These may change, and they may already be changed.
    Demo: Littleroot Town – Route 102
    Beta 1: Littleroot Town – Dewford Town
    Beta 2: Granite Cave – Lavaridge Town
    Beta 3: Route 113 – Team Magma Hideout
    Beta 4: Route 124 – Ever Grande City
    Beta 5: Second Region
    Beta 6: Cleanup and Easter Eggs
    Final Version: Everything

    Beta Testers:
    Before you ask, no, you cannot become a beta tester. The only way you can become a beta testers is if you either become a team member, or if I actually know you. Even then, no guarantees. Here is the list of beta testers:

    Kage-X
    Cooley
    Mateo
    Redstar
    Vednix

    If I have asked you before, and you are not on this list, please send me a PM.

      Woot, first post.

      Anyway, onto the matter at hand, this looks to be a promising hack. And I though I was a beta tester? :/

      ALso, you appear to have posted the same screenshot twice.

        Yes, I see that I did double post a screenshot. I'll have to take that down. And yes, I did ask you to become a beta tester. I'll update the thread shortly.

              Okay, it's official. I am now going to be using Emerald Tiles, not Ruby tiles for this hack. I will get out some screenshots later.

                Wow. A silver hack. I haven't seen a Silver hack. This game looks good.

                Are you gonna have RSE attacks in it?

                    Yeah, I'm going to be changing most of the Silver attacks to fit more like Ruby's set.

                    Yeah, I can redo userbars later.
                    I voted emerald, as I'd like to see the battle frontier. however, it seems like it would be really hard to script.

                      I'm pretty sure I could do it, it would just take time. That will be very far into the future for this hack, so I really won't work on it at all yet.

                      Pokemon Emerald is one of my favorite Pokemon games so I voted for it.

                        Yes, I'm planning on it, it shouldn't be too hard to add in. I'm currently devamping some Emerald tiles, and I'll insert them later today and update some of the screenshots.

                          This looks simply amazing. I haven't seen a silver hack before... I wish you best of luck with this. I'll keep an eye on this hack.

                            So, which Pokemon are being left out to make room for the RSE ones? all the old ones?

                              I thought the GBC Hacks can make room for all 493 Pokemon. So there's no need to remove any.

                              I was wondering, how will you do the Red Orb animation?

                                I truly hope this gets finished. It looks great and I personally hate the Pokemon Advance+ engines, and stick to Red/Blue and Gold/Silver. Good job and don't give up :D

                                    YES this is finally up, and everything i expected. I'd seen a single pic about it, and finally the thread is up. Brilliant idea, a de-make, or whatever you'll call it. Kudos! Well done!

                                      Ah. that looks better. you still have two screenshots the same though

                                      and perhaps putting the last 5 screenshots on a new line?

                                          Will you be including a worthless cameraman in Slateport that follows you? JK

                                          But, what are you doing for the clock and bag scenes? I could see the time set from gsc being for that, but the bag, idk.
