    And so the brand new Demo is being released!
    The game is a big change from the original just another in their cannon series of Pokemon games, but I'm sure some of you will still enjoy it.

    This is a Pokemon Red hack.

    Although in the readme I have asked not to report bugs, If you somehow find a serious game affecting bug please report it.

    PLEASE READ THE README ON HOW TO PATCH.

    Pokemon Violet Demo One
    By Cartmic.



    Crion was a relatively uninhabited land until survivors of the French speaking Vieuxcrion
    quake moved onto it in the early 1860's.
    Christian Missionary's from the Islands of Croy also moved over and helped the Vieuxcrions
    build new towns and villages.




    1974 Councillor Delia Ingrid became Minister for the land of Crion, in her 35 years of power she
    systematically removed all known sources of written history before the 1970's, jailing anyone who
    got in her way. 2009, Arthur Ernshaw is brought over to Crion from Naljo to help David Yew a
    Pokemon Researcher and leader of a resistance group with an aim of bringing Crion out of Ingrids
    oppression.






    Rumour has it that this bridge will be fixed soon



    Poor guy, he was in an abseiling accident.







    New Marts!









    * 3 Towns
    * 1 Routes/1 Route Quarry
    * 1 Forest
    * 1 Town Hall



    Please do not report any bugs, apart form spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. as this is a stable Demo release and not Beta material.

    I now realise that I've spelled 'systematically' wrong, this will be fixed in the next release.



    Professor Oak's image is still in the intro screen, I am working on changing this to the
    correct image of David Yew.

    Yew's wheelchair appears to malfunction when he takes you to his lab, this is because I need
    to rewrite the script from the orignal Oak script. (also I shall redraw him a little)
    .
    The two people that attempt to give you Coffee will not give you Coffee, rather, they will give
    you their original Pokemon Red items. Again this problem is a script issue and I hope to have it
    fixed by the next Demo.



    BG, ER, Colloseum Translations, and Dtyler, For inspiring me to hack in the first place.

    Dtyler, ER, and Koolboyman for showing what you can really do with a hack.

    Blazichu, Christos, eMer, Hat/Black_Pantom, Mateo and others for encouragement over the years.

    Phillip Ruben for writting Pokemap, BreakPoint software for Hexworkshop, Kent Hansen and Mr. Click for their tile editors.

        So you finally released a demo
        Nice job I'm going to play it for sure

        EDIT:
        I'm going to give you some critic already
        The mountains in the beginning look weird since you try to put too many different blocks next to each other.
        If there isn't enough space for putting them nicely use only the border- and the mountain-top blocks.

          Thanks for your feedback, yeah those tiles crossed my mind, if they are the ones I think they are it would look better in say Ruby, where the map engine enables you to set different tiles at different layers.
          I'll sort something out.

          EDIT: I'm going to spruce up the thread in a bit.

          This should get more response, all the work looks top notch, only crit I have is I hate the font the official one in R/B/Y looks better. But that's my opinion! it's your hack
          Keep up the amazing work!

            Ahhhhh. Your hack's plot is like a history geek's fantasy. IE, my fantasy. Finally, a plot that makes perfect sense. (It's also a bit like the storyline in my nonexistent hack - some guy vs. opressive dictator. Yaaay dictators.)

            I'll download the demo and play it, but I'm a little disappointed that you're hacking Red. Why hack the oldest base in existence? R/S/E and FR/LG are so much easier on the eyes.

                Why, though? Does the nostalgia element really outweigh the monochromatic palette and sucky graphics? If you want to preserve the old skool feel of the game, you could at least go for a 2nd gen base and inject some colour into your hack.

                  As I can see from your attitude you're one of the young people here :D
                  For example I grew up playing pokemon blue and yellow myself so I just like the "bad graphics" feel.

                  Red hacks are my favorites, I loave when people judge by the base though.
                  Well, everything looks great so far, though I don't like the font, only thing wrong so far.

                    I had no idea that there was a similar story, but thats expected, there are countless stories being made up both in here and the scrap box, though the problem is that the majority never come to fruition/completion, this however has been an on going project that I started when I was 16.

                    I'm not a fan of ellipsis, but now is a good time to use them...

                    Pokemon Red is my favourite game to hack and always will be, though strangely enough Ruby is my favorite game to play, but thats it I would never want to hack it.

                    A note to all other 10-16 year olds and all other newbies that only care about the overused RSE FrLg, get out of this thread and leave your de-motivating comments to yourself. I've kept this up as I've promised for years to people that it will get released eventually, and thats whats going to happen, I'm not giving up on it. I've worked really hard on it so far. I'd love to see you people struggle with a hex editor for the majority of your ROM hack and use little bit of trial and error, to produce something similar.

                    On a lighter note, I'm going to fix a few things(font included) then release Version 1.2 asap.

                    EDIT: Version 1.2 Now available, with some fixed text, tiles, and a rather embarrassing last minute change that messed up a Town Map tile has now been fixed.

                    EDIT: I'm starting work back on this in the New Year, The next release will include a trip to the Island south of Crion. I am also putting up a poll on whether I should somehow adapt my story back into a standard generic Pokemon Game story, with a little less government stuff included.
                    It seeems I'm a little late for adding a Poll the the post, so I'm going to do in this way,
                    If you want a story implemented that joins it up with the rest of the Pokemon Games PM me a with the Subject: Cannon, then in the message: Yes, otherwise Subject: Government, message: No.

                      Wow, another retro hack...
                      I'll download the demo.

                      I like the retro hacks, because I wanna play it on my phone (use meboy. my phone is java)...
                      And when I play on VBA, the speed is VERY FAST. So, I can train my Pokémon fast.

                        I love it when people hack the old games, mainly because theyre just so classic.
                        A hack isn't about making the best, it's about hacking it how you want to, and thats what your doing

                          This is seriously the most underrated hack around Progressing Hacks right now. Only 12 replies at this point? Seriously?

                          Anyways, I forgot to post back after playing the demo. I enjoyed it. The inclusion of GSC tiles is nice, and some of the ideas and places are nice and original. I dig the mapping style, too. I'd actually love to remake this once it progresses enough...

                          When I talked to the guy near the center in the second town, though, to get the TM, the evolution music started playing. xD. I just went into the center because the map had different music, so it went back to normal, but still. Soz. Yes, it's a bug report, but I couldn't resist. :3

                            Maybe, most people doesn't like the red hack...

                            Oh, the tiles from GSC?
                            I didn't notice it. And yeah, it is nice.

                              Most of the ROM hackers here are aged 11-15 so it's no surprise.
                              It's a real shame that people can't look past face value, this version of the hack has had months of hard work put into it, hours have been spent within Hex Editors editing connection data, town map, text, and repointing etc.

                              Thanks for the feedback. No worries about the bug report, I'll have to look into it.

                                  This is a great hack. I've played through this Demo and it's very nice. Most other Red or Blue hacks just seem to be simple map and text edits, but Cartmic has changed the connection data to make it much better.

                                  Great work on this hack!

                                    Short but sweet, though I liked what I was able to play. I can't exactly say I get the historical references (if there are any) but the plot is unique in what it presents. Aside from the plot/enemy lineups/tile changes, what else are you going to do to the game? Will there be additional challenges to the main quest, changes to some of the moves/TMs or the addition of Steel/Dark types and can you get all 151 (or maybe more) Pokemon in the game? That being said I look forward to what happens from here. Keep up the good work.

                                    Hmm, perhaps if Youtube is co-operative enough I'll upload a run of the Demo...

                                      EDIT: Now the thread has ten screenshots, I believe I've qualified for the Hacks Showcase, I'll ask Christos if I can get it moved.

                                      Glad to see this in the showcase, Whenever I try to find this it gets buried in a mess. >.< I do love the GSC tiles in this, and your style of mapping is quite well done (As I expected) I hate to see Red hacks so under appreciated.

                                      Oh yeah, god that text is so much better, thank goodness ya changed it, much better! And those trees on the world map are a nice touch.

                                        I love the GSC tiles too...
                                        Keep working.

                                        Java? It's an island of Indonesia, isn't it?
                                        or Java (something with coffee icon)?

                                            Java? It's an island of Indonesia, isn't it?
                                            or Java (something with coffee icon)?
                                            Or Java, As in the scripting language used in coding many websites, Why do you bring up Java anyway?
