Hi everyone! I'm Submachine39 AKA Mechakhan and I'm relatively new here on PC. Anyway I, like many other people here, decided that I wanted to create a ROM hack. I've been ROM hacking for about 1 year and this is my first public work. So, without further ado, the details!

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0B_JgxBmB0U

Story:
Spoiler:
A new island has been discovered in the middle of the ocean. Not many people are sure how or when the island appeared, but ever since it was discovered, people started to immigrate to it. Eventually, you and your familly did as well. There, you and your brother recive your first Pokémon and venture on a journey across the Secrien region! However, some things are not as they seem...


Features (So far):
Spoiler:
A new region, new storyline and new characters. (And a few old ones...)
A level limit (Pokémon will stop obeying if they are overleveled and you don't have enough badges.)
Full decapitalisation, cause capitals are annoying.
Physical/Special Spilt.
All trainers have maximum AI and 50 IVs instead of 0 for added difficulty.
Pokémon and moves from gens 4, 5 and 6.
Custom level-up movepools. (They're very similar to XY/ORAS though.)
A fakemon. (Yup, just ONE fakemon.)
Some references to different games and anime.
Reusable and custom TMs.
Move tutors can teach moves multible times, in exchange for Shards.
HMs contain more useful moves.
A Hidden Power checker.
Some cursing words, nothing mayor though.
BW repel system.
Running indoors (Obviously)
Some trainer classed music.
Some Pokémon have their hidden abilities available.
The items sold at Pokémarts are based of how many badges you have.


Credits:
Spoiler:
Game Freak, for creating one of my favourite gaming franchises.
Amethyst, for creating Pokémon Reborn and giving me the idea to use a level limit.
JPAN, for creating the documentation about the Special and Special2 commands, the Pokémon Decrypter ASM routine and his post about Battlescript command 0.

Jambo51, for his custom trainer music and for his research about commonly used FireRed ASM ROM offsets.

If you notice that I have included something that you discovered, please tell me and I will add you to the list!


Progress:
Spoiler:
The alpha covers one gym, but does not stop right away!
In the Alpha, the hack is about 10% finished.
Currently, the hack is about 20% finished.


Screenshots:
Spoiler:





Bugs:
Spoiler:
The professors glasses flash as he withdraws his Pokémon in the intro: Really minor and probably someting that's not worth fixing.
Also, the Pokémon has a seadra cry, which it shouldn't: Again, very minor.
Your position on the town map is sometimes in the wrong place: I honestly don't know how to fix this...
If the rival fight is lost, the script wont run again: Fixed, uploaded new patch.
Let me know if you find anything!


Downloads:
EDIT: I accidentally used a FireRed 1.1 rom for the old patch. The updated patch is for FireRed 1.0. If you downloaded the old patch I would recommend redownloading, as there are probably many bugs in it.

Looks interesting. Probably will get put up for hack of the month next month, if this month's precedent of tossing new hacks into the fray continues.

Check out the crappy hacks that I made:

Looks promising, I'll try this one out.
Thank you for the positive feedback! :)

So do I have the wrong version of the game?

Oops, I just realised that I used a FireRed 1.1 rom when I created the patch. That might be the cause of the problem. Really sorry about that! I've uploaded a new patch in the first post.

Good luck with your hack, however, your thread needs more tweaking and information, for instance "Story" section doesn't give any idea of your hack concept, I personally do not feel attracted to the plot neither motivated to play it.
I hope you won't take this negatively but positively to improve further your experience and skills! Good luck mate!

Thank you for your comment! My intention was to explain the story in a mysterious way, but I agree with you that it's somewhat lacking. At the moment, I haven't got everything planned out. In the next beta when the game will be about 50 % done (Which will probably be released one or two years from now in my current pacing :P) more of the story will be revealed as well as other features which will hopefully make my hack stand out more.

Thank you for the amazing hack submachine39! I had a great time.. Plz tell me youre still working on it? Hows the progress so far? Cheers
First of all, thank you for still caring about this project. During the past 1,5 years, I lost a bit of motivation to work on it and finished "Pokmon FireRed - RNG Strikes Back", a hack in which the opponent has perfect RNG and the player has the worst RNG possible. However, I have been working on Pokmon Classified and finished content up until the second gym. But I don't think it's ready for another release yet, as I would like to give players more than just 20 minutes of gameplay. I plan to release a beta version when I've finished the 4th or 5th gym, which wont happen any time soon I'm afraid. This is mainly because of other things I have to do (school, etc) but also because I was inexperienced in the beginning and therefore my coding is a mess. :P So to summarize, I am working on it, just very slowly. Don't expect to see a beta version in 2017, possibly not even during 2018. However, I will try my best to finish it. :)
