    Some of you might be familiar with my Sapphire hack: Topaz. Essentially, the idea was just a fun hack. Nothing to major. Start with Pikachu, and your rival starts with Eevee. Sound familiar? Catching all the Pokon was a huge aspect.

    However, my lack of knowldge in scpriting is my shortcoming in both ROM hacking and game creation. So if someone would like to join my game, and become my partner, it would be much appreciated and welcomed. I need a java scripter because this game will be done in Sphere.

    These goals are focused on just completing the first events of the game.
    Short-Term Goals:
    Finish mapping Littleroot Town. (COMPLETE)
    Finish scripting Littleroot Town.
    Finish mapping Littleroot houses.
    Finish scripting Littleroot houses.
    Finish mapping Birch's Lab.
    Finish scripting Birch's Lab.
    Finish mapping Route 101. (COMPLETE)
    Finish scripting Route 101.
    Finish scripting enter menu.
    Finish scripting battle engine.
    Finish scripting Birch's "Help Me" event.

    These goals are far-off, and may not come to pass.
    Long-Term Goals:
    Script Pokex.
    Script Pokear.
    Complete Hoenn region.
    Complete Johto region.
    Complete Kanto region.
    Have all Pokon catchable.

    Obviously, I would be lucky to complete Hoenn. I'm a good mapper and spriter. I can do a lot of the design aspects. I pale when it comes to scripting though. Some help is required. Please PM me if you're interested. Then I'll give you my IM screen names, so then we can contact each other instantly, and transfer files.

    The screenshot is an actual shot of a demo I created of Littleroot. The events don't work. I tried to make basic functions and failed. The tilesets were manually inputted. As was the Haruka (May) spriteset shown in the screenshot.

      Just one thing,its javascript.
      But instead,of maping everything yourself,just go to vgmaps.com and save the map images then in sphere use "import image to map",its alot quicker because all you have to do then is sperate the layers which only takes a few mins.
      Also,I love it when games in sphere start up so I wish you good luck with this.

            Thanks, Umbreon.

            I'm having difficulty with importing maps. When I try to, the maps stay blank. Also, how can I make " show up in the game?

              Just press ctrl+alt+e.
              As for the maps,I think it puts the map file in the same folder as the image,so check there.

                For me it's alt (hold) + 1 + 3 + 0 (Num. Pad), but that's not what I mean. The " doesn't show up during gameplay.

                Thanks for the help again, Booda. It was where you said it was.

                  oh you need to put it into the game's font.

                  So open up the font and go to the by pressing what you need to and draw/past it in.

                    Not sure what that means, but I figured out a way to make it work. Thanks for helping out though. I was able to come up with a way from your advice.

                        I have finished the following:
                        Mapping Littleroot
                        Mapping Player's House
                        Mapping Petalburg
                        Mapping Route 101
                        Mapping Route 102
                        Mapping Route 103
                        Calling the Enter Menu

                        I can call the menu, but all I get is the outline of the window, and the rest is black. The middle is black, and the area around it is black too. Not sure how to fix this.

                        How do I make it so that people talk to you when you press the "Z" key?

                        Also, can you make it so that text scrolls like it does in the games?

                          Answer to the first one: SetTalkActivationKey(KEY_Z);

                          To the second,yes you can,you need to script it though.
