First of you need to sit down and learn what is and isn't possible to do in a hack, and what might be possible but would require a lot of time and effort to modify the game's programming to achieve.

No, don't do a remake don't EVER do a remake, there are about twenty and they are all the same.

    Yeah, Before you make everyone think you're a complete newb, trying going through the site and looking around, and don't start a hack before you know at least a little, how to hack, because then it will be doomed to fail.

    So I pop in and out once every few months, I'm trying to get up to speed again.

    What's the word on DS hacks? Are GBA hacks still the most popular around here or have we moved on?

    GBA hacks are still way more commun. There are a few good DS hacks floating around - the one I'm most looking forward to is Aqua Saphire - but they're still pretty rare .

        Hey I'm not sure if this is the right thread to be posting this... but im going to try anyway.

        Im a bit of a n00b when it comes to rom hacking but i do have some good knowledge of scripting, map editing, etc. and i want to make a pokemon ruby hack that Ive been trying to finish for a while now. Unfortunately, i am unable to do so due to my lack of enough experience and knowledge.

        If anybody is interested in partnering up, PM me and ill give you a basis of my ideas and hopefully we can work something out.

        thanks all:D

        There is progress, but it is really slow. There's currently a Map Editor being worked on in the Toolbox.

          Are there any good hacks, apart from that Aqua Sapphire one?

              Yes, it is wrong.

              If you haven't asked the original creator and gotten their consent, then you have no right to remake/ alter their hack in any way shape or form as it's against the rules and common courtesy. Hack creators put a lot of time and effort into their hacks so they generally wish to keep everything about them under their own control.

              No, it is not wrong.

              If you haven't asked the original creator and gotten their consent, it doesn't matter. You have every right to remake/ alter their hack in any way shape or form because that's what every hack is. Video game creators put a lot of time and effort into their games so they generally wish to keep everything about them under their own control. But who cares about them, right?

              Yes if you're not going to give credit for said hack and tiles.
              Also if the creator asks you not to since I'm sure you'd stop if Nintendo told you.

                The only limitation is hardware limitations. So, in the GBA generation, you wouldn't be able to make anything 3D or anything.

                  When I first learned ASM, I had a sudden realization: “I can do anything! Think of all the possibilities!”

                  Frankly, even if you never do anything all that special with it, I think it’s worth learning ASM just to experience that feeling.

Serperior evolves to Snivy by being trained to level 93 in Dragonspiral tower's new hidden area(unlocked by using Genesect with Flash in the top room) while holding a Master Ball which is used up. Also, the party must include a Reshiram and Zekrom lv 100 exactly, the Serperior, Genesect lv 100, Arceus lv 100, Magikarp lv 3, Rayquaza lv 100. It would all be worth it. I might make a hack including it and make a video of how to do it.
                    It doesn't have to be dragonspiral tower. I'm not going to do the hack and I'm just looking for someone else to do it for me. All I want is to make the vid of how to get Kobremega.

                    That's impossible. Nobody can fully edit B/W maps, add complex custom scripting (Especially when you seem to want the player to have a party of 7 Pokémon) or add new Pokémon with moves that don't use existing effects.

                    It's also completely and utterly ludicrous.

                      Hi folks!

                      I have a few hack concepts suggestions to make. Simple concepts that I would really like to play:

                      1st concept: Battles that last longer. By that, I mean doubling every pokemon's health and lowering the weakness/resistance multiplier (from 2x to 1.5x, and 0.5x to 0.75x). Well now, I dunno if the latter is possible to do, but with doubled health, moves that affects health on percentage would need to be modified (Leech seed would be the best move), and maybe even the moves that affect stats would need to be modified (else it would be too easy to boost self). Any version, but I'd prefer games from Ruby/Sapphire up to Black/White

                      2nd concept: Ability to learn more than 4 moves. Now, I suppose that this may not be possible to do and that it may also have been suggested already in the past. So not gonna bother much with that suggestion, just say if it's possible of not.

                      3rd concept: Triple Battle and Rotation Battle only. Maybe even battles with that Wonder Launcher or whatever it was. The latter, I suppose it may not be possible since the AI is probably not programmed to be able to battle in this mode. However, Triple Battle and Rotation Battles are waaaay too underused, and thus I'd love to play a whole game of just those!


                      Hoping someone will start making those hacks. I don't want to throw myself in hacking projects since my school requires a lot of my time.

                        It's possible, but I don't know wether it'd be worthwile. I mean, YOU would like to play that kind of game, but would the general public be interested in it?

                        This might be possible, through some serious ASM. But if it can be done, it'll be popular

                        Well, since Triple/Rotation battles are only used in B/W, and the hacking of 5th Gen is only evolving very slowly. And importing that kind of battles in R/S/E/FR/LG might be possible, but again, if possible, it would require a HUGE amount of source code editing. So I doubt anyone will want to take their time to do so.
