I'm going to have to shoot you down here, FR/LG tiles are the best tiles out there. Along with Emerald, FangKing Omega and Ruby. Our tilesets fit together sweetly.

I love the Fire Red tiles. They're beautiful and simplistic and they work. We'll be adding custom tiles as we see fit to work with events. We added new houses and what not.

And I find most custom tilesets to be hideous tbh :3

Harry edit: lol beaten

I'm not going to make the assumption that you are a lazy hacker but I will say this: there is usually at least one way to activate the event without narrowing the path down to only one tile. However, seeing how I am limited to only a few tidbits of material to view, it could be possible that there is absolutely no other way to ensure that the player activates the event but I am doubtful of that.

Careful there. Generalizations like those will get you into a lot of trouble these days (especially in this thread given that Manipulation is a huge fan of Azure Horizons).

edit: I rest my case. :P

It was a one tile width before the event was made. So, whatever. It's up to Luke, but I'm pretty fine with scripting another tile. I just had it there because of how the map was.

I'm pretty sure the player can deal with walking down a small stretch of one-tile path. I don't see why it's that big of a deal and why hackers constantly have to point it out ~_~

One tile, two tiles, red tiles, blue tiles. As long as it's fun to play I don't see any problems. This looks like you're trying to get the story and game play done first and I'm glad to see that (but maybe I'm biased because of the contest :3 - thanks by the way and awesome concept for a game). I'd rather see a game that gets moving even if it's not perfect than one which nitpicks and gets abandoned with only the introduction finished.

    An extremely interesting storyline. This reminds me of the Oracle Betrayed series, in which the one person who can speak with the God (the Oracle) is lying and declaring her own desires as sacred law.

    I'll be very interested in playing this game, and taking out that evil acolyte!

    The story is some of the best I've seen in a ROM hack. You've shown some great initiative and are really flying through this. It's looking great, some good hackers on your team also. I think you know how well this is doing so keep it up, I anticipate a release, as I know it will be great.

        That's very good for a first try. Thanks for the support.

        Also, I think it's time to reveal that there is going to be a site with all of the info, downloads, and everything else you need to know about Broken Beacon. It's being maintained by my favorite Mexican person in the world: Forgotten Memory! And here's a preview of the site:

        Spoiler:


        Stay tuned for more as we've moved on to mapping the next town. And goon has finished an amazing hack for the next city with a gym in it :3

            This hack seems very nicely laid out, with story, features, and...Pastors?
            Aren't pastors supposed to be preaching, and not battling some child? I mean, sure, if that's your story, go ahead...

            And my Full Metal Alchemist senses are tingling...

              Yeah, I sprited/made/inserted us a boot screen. :> Aren't I awesome? It's simplistic, hell you only see it for three seconds. It's nothing major, but whatever. Just adding some eye candy to the ROM haha.

              Cardinals & Acolyte


              Name: Minerva
              Gender: Female
              Art: None
              Age: 40
              Hometown: Pietr City
              Abilities: None
              Embodiment of Gluttony

              Pokémon:
              • Solrock Lv.54
              • Cradily Lv.52
              • Golem Lv.53
              • Aerodactyl Lv.54
              • Aggron Lv.56
              For years Minerva was the runt of her family. Overweight, lazy and slow. Terrible traits to carry in a family of athletes. What she lacked in physical attractiveness and athletic ability she made up for in training Pokémon. She always managed to beat her numerous brothers and sisters in a convincing matter. Eventually she gained the attention of the church and was made the Pastor of her town. Her first order of business was to have her family evicted from their house and made her personal servants. When this was found out, she was kicked from her position and imprisoned. However, when the new Acolyte took over, she was released and promoted to one the four Cardinal positions. Her room is full of food, wine and other excesses of luxury.

              Name: Gustav
              Gender: Male
              Age: 38
              Art: None
              Hometown: Stalwart's Oasis
              Abilities: None
              Embodiment of Lust

              Pokémon:
              • Armaldo Lv.55
              • Venomoth Lv.56
              • Heracross Lv. 54
              • Beedrill Lv.56
              • Pinsir Lv.57
              Gustav was known for his ability to charm any woman with his dashing good lucks and charm. He married almost every rich widow in the country. Inexplicably, they died soon after but it was never proven he played a part in her death. He used his new found wealth to seduce every woman in the country. Eventually he charmed his way into a position of power in the church. However, he was discovered poisoning a Pastor's drink and thrown in jail. Much like Minerva, when the new Acolyte took over, Gustav was promoted to an Cardinal position.

              Name: Simone
              Gender: Female
              Age: 12
              Art: None
              Hometown: Olympia City
              Abilities: None
              Embodiment of Envy

              Pokémon:
              • Magneton Lv.55
              • Forretress Lv. 56
              • Metagross Lv.58
              • Skarmory Lv.57
              • Mawile Lv.59
              Born into a life of religion. Since her birth, she has been groomed to be the leader of the many sisters who served Ho-oh. She was angered by her life and wanted nothing more than to break free. She was kept under tight supervision and eventually Simone gave into what was expected of her. She quickly showed great aptitude at what she did. However, if any other girl started to outshine her, she had them removed from the order and forced into some form of servitude. Her dolls had to be the best, her dresses made of the finest materials and no other person could have better Pokémon. Due to her position, she was automatically made a Cardinal, making her the only one of the four to not be handpicked by the Acolyte. She admires him though and does whatever he orders.

              Name: Peter
              Gender: Male
              Age: 27
              Art: None
              Hometown: Hoenn
              Abilities: Piracy
              Embodiment of Sloth

              Pokémon:
              • Whiscash Lv.58
              • Tentacruel Lv. 58
              • Ludicolo Lv.57
              • Lanturn Lv.59
              • Gyarados Lv.60
              Known around the world as the "Scarlet Marauder." His piracy knew no limits: trade ships, cruise ships, rafts or submarines. If they were on the sea, they were prey for Peter. His days were numbered when his ship crashed into Ho-oh's Crest and he was captured by the church. He was convicted of numerous crimes and sentenced to death. Fortunately for him, the day of his execution also marked the day of the new Acolyte taking over. He was immediately pardoned and made the top ranking Cardinal. In gratitude, he is overly loyal to the Acolyte. He would do ANYHING for him.

              A mysterious man who appeared on the island after the previous Acolyte's death and came forward with a legitimate claim to the position. With no other choice, the church anointed him and became the newest Acolyte. He made sweeping changes, including adopting policies from the Pokémon League, canceling many festivals and bringing three new Cardinals on board. All former criminals, he declared the theme of the year to be 'Repentance.' However to some, they sense something malicious behind his decisions and a resistance movement has been growing in opposition to his rule.
              REAL SPOILERS UNDER HERE:
              Spoiler:
              Vladimir is actually a former Team Rocket Member hired by the Pokémon League to infiltrate Ho-oh's crest. His brother is actually the legitimate heir to the position but he apparently died several years earlier. Assuming his identity, he moved in and claimed the position. His goal is to bring the island under the League's control and the start collecting taxes from the immense wealth the island holds. Along the way, Vladimir discovered the festival celebrating Ho-oh's Wish. Being a former Rocket member, he knows a golden opportunity when he sees one. He decides to use this chance to revive the Gang with him as leader and more powerful then before.

                Just thought I'd mention that lust isn't necessarily sexual, even though it's usually meant as that. It can be for anything intangible, like power. And I'd think power would work better in this case.

                Other than that, it looks epic.

                    wow luke your hack is soooo epic developing nicely :D

                    Your character detail is more than just looks and simple natures, you can imagine the character, and then the lil twists you make it even better :)

                    But enough of the praise, let get on to what i hate about this hack. oh wait there is nothing. :P

                    Although it may be a bit out dated; someone said that why people would treat a pokemon like a god, when pokemon are pets and all i can say is:
                    Indians have cow's as there god.
                    different cultures see things differently (like Chinese people and cats)

                    Oh there was something Luke, the 3rd gyn leader likes mexican food.
                    This is like your only refrence to earth. maybe change it too spicy food?

                    Only a suggestion!!!!


                    Good luck

                    There are several references to the real world in this game and Mexican food is a reference to the person the character is based on.

                    UPDATEUPDATEUPDATE



                    Yes, Honey Trees make an appearance in Broken Beacon. About a year ago, an organization of Flora & Fauna enthusiasts traveled to Ho-oh's Crest. They brought with them numerous trees from Sinnoh to increase the insect population on the island (hence why the trees stick out in comparison to everything else on the island). The trees function like Headbutt in this game.

                    One of two rivals in the game. When we find a reliable OW spriter, his appearance will change. His role in the game is an enforcer from the Church sent around to take care of issues that may hurt the church. As you move along, he becomes more interested in your goals. Whether he supports them or wishes to stop them is unclear.

                    We'll have a video soon of one of our awesome events.

                    I like the implementation of the honey trees. It would be cool if they could work like D/P whre you wait for a while, it's possible if you check the amount of steps the player has walked as a form of time. :3
