Hello! This is my first post, as well as my first rom hack.

Introduction!
This is my project for an improved version of Fire Red: Pokémon Fire Red Plus.
The goal of this project is to improve and re-balance the game, without significantly altering the original experience or the original flavour of the Kanto remakes.
This is my very first rom hacking project, and it's still a learning experience for me. I consider the game finished for the time being, but I still look forward to support and suggestions.

Major features and mechanics!
Pokémon Fire Red Plus aims to improve the original experience while mantaining its flavour. If you're looking for a game that includes dozens of new and updated features, this might not be for you. That being said, several changes and updates to the formula have been implemented.

Other nifty features!

Helpful documentation can be found here.

DOWNLOAD LINK - v2.01
The game is meant to be patched onto Fire Red 1.1 specifically!

Several helpful people and tutorials from PokéCommunity in general
My friends for playtesting and continued development feedback

A huge shout-out has to go to my best friend, dr_krystal! Due to my complete lack of experience in coding and programming, they have been an incredible help in working with me to get this project going. None of this would be happening without them, and I consider them a creator of this project just as much as I am.
Once again, this is our first project: be kind, but do let us know about problems you might encounter while playing or suggestions that you might have. Just have a fun time!

It's been a lot of fun rerunning through FireRed with the QoL improvements you and your team have made! It feels like a good balance of bringing a modern touch to the game while not overwhelming it with features to make it feel too removed from gen 3. Awesome and refreshing hack overall!

A few questions about Pokemon:
1. According to the Pokedex, Girafarig seems unavailable in the game. Is it maybe obtainable by trade? The features technically don't guarantee all pokemon being available, but this is one of the only 'mons I haven't been able to find.
2. I haven't been able to locate Suicune either. Is there anyway to get it?
3. Is there any way to get the second fossil (the one that we don't pick up in Mt. Moon)?

There are a handful of signs/npcs that were game-breaking for me. I've only been playing on the My Boy emulator, so I'm not sure if these are emulator-specific:
1. The lass to the left of the Pewter city gym runs the same script as the guide who takes you to the Pewter City gym. This happens even after you get the gym's badge, and it results in a softlock since she takes you into the trees to the left of the city.
2. There's a sign in Green path (the patch of land above Six Island and before entering the Pattern Bush) that crashes the game if you interact with it. Since it's a sign, even just running into it will break the game.
3. The sign at the entrance of Mt. Moon (the one closer to Pewter City and not Cerulean City) also crashes the game.

it'd be great to get answers/fixes for these if they're not emulator-specific issues, but great hack overall!

Will you add the pokemon following feature to the hack? Looking for something close enough to fire red with first 3 gens and following feature like radical red.

Suicune is a static encounter that triggers in the post-game, it is supposed to appear near Bill's house like in HG/SS.
Girafarig and the Fossil Pokémon were planned to be available...it was a genuine oversight on my part to miss adding them.
The NPC events crashing the game seem to be a consequence of an error in the map editor I've been using. I've encountered and fixed the ones I ran into while testing, but unfortunately it seems I missed some.
I will soon release an update fixing these oversights! Thank you for playing the game, for your kind words and for your feedback! <3

Thanks for following up! I was able to find Suicune like moments after my previous post haha. Looking forward to seeing the next iteration of this, good luck :)

Apparently I cannot use the regular Pokemon fire red charts for the game, not even the rare candy on PC ones.

Is cheating possible on your rom? If so, do you know codes that work?

Beyond that been enyojing the ride so far, good refurbished version of a great remake!

That's odd. I've used that cheat myself and it worked, so I'm not sure what the problem would be there.

Still, thank you so much!

This is my bad for forgetting to specify it in the post. This game has to be patched onto Fire Red 1.1 specifically. I have now added this in the original post! Sorry!

This looks amazing. Gonna start it immediately!

- During the main story, all the original Kanto Pokémon are available, as well as their cross-generational Johto evolutions and pre-evolutions. Of course, this means the game no longer prevents you from evolving Pokémon such as Golbat before the National Pokédex is obtained.
- The locations and encounter rates of several Pokémon have been changed and improved.
- The rest of the Johto Pokédex is available in the post-game portion of the Sevii Islands.

Are any Hoenn Pokemon available in this game?

This is a fantastic game but how do I get back to the Sevii Islands? I've done everything on there except from give the sapphire to Bill. When I go to the Vermillion harbour, I automatically face the npc but there's no text and then I go on to the SS Anne. There's no option to go back to the islands.

UPDATE: Fixed it. Just speak to Professor Oak in his lab.

Would you be willing to share the source code for this ROMhack? I love poking around in that stuff.
