    ALPHA TESTERS NEEDED

    It seems as if retro is now considered "in" when it comes to new games. A lot of Indie developers are using 8bit graphics in an effort to appeal to a nostalgic crowd. What happens when you apply this to Pokemon? You get the Nostalgic Emerald Hack.

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Hoenn happened in Gen 2? Well you're about to find out.

    Features include:
    A massive roster of 250 Pokemon!
    Gameboy era graphics!
    Gym leaders now have Pokemon to reflect the Generation shift!
    A massive amount of Nostalgia!
    Day and Night!

    Obviously it's a work in progress, but it's a start.

    To do list:
    Spoiler:
    • More sprite replacements
    • Music Replacement
    • Day and Night
    • The occasional bug fix


    Known bugs:
    Spoiler:
    • Two water routes will not cooperate with AMap

      Gen 2 graphics in an Emerald base? That sounds so retro, it's fantastic! I can't wait to try this out

            Looks great, man. Definitely fits the trend. Are you going to try and put in the legendary scene as well?

                I don't know why, but there's something about GSC graphics that makes me like it more than any other Pokemon graphic engine.

                  If you're talking about the part where Rayquaza flies from the sky, I'm going to try. But if you're talking about the part where Groudon and Kyogre are just hitting each other, of course, definitely.

                  The main problem is that the cutscenes will have to be sprited from scratch. Considering there won't be any Gen 3 pokemon, Groudon and Kyogre would be replaced with Ho-Oh and Lugia, and I have no idea who's to replace Rayquaza.

                  Regarding Pre-Alphas, I'm sure I'll release one eventually, but trust me, y'all don't want one know. At the moment it's this weird, glitchy mix of Gen 2 and 3 sprites and may just ruin the hype, haha

                    The tiles look good so far - do you have any building tiles done yet / towns mapped out?

                        Yo, sup guys, I thought I would post a small update. I got a few more tiles replaced, and I've started messing with the palettes some. Dewford and Fortree are pretty much done excluding the buildings. I haven't started on them yet (save for the Pokecenter, but that's just a place holder and besides, it's pretty bleh atm)
                        Update images :D :

                        I don't have any of the building tiles done yet, and the towns are mapped out already because I'm changing very little structure wise.

                              There will probably be some custom sprites, or atleast some edits. Not everything in Emerald can be represented by something in GSC unfortunately.

                              However there will be no Gen 3 Pokemon. I apologize, but you can't have Gen 2 in Hoenn if you include Gen 3 pokemon. They'll still be in the ROM, but you'd have to fool with it yourself post release

                                    This looks great! Interesting and original concept. but no gen 3 pokemon!? I'm sure they've made every gen 3 pokemon a gen 2 looking sprite by now

                                      Not as far as I know. And if they did, it wouldn't matter. One of the main points of the hack is "what if Gen 2 was in Hoenn?" As a result, only Pokemon up to Gen 2 will be included

                                          It looks beautiful.
                                          But... can you do something about the dark grass on the flower tile?
                                          It looks really wrong there... the grass should be consistent.
