Could you possibly make a mod for Pokèmon Emerald version?
If so, the mod would allow you to capture Gen. 1, 2, and 3 Pokèmon starters. Another thing is that I would like the story line changed, new rivals and gym leaders, and a new character (if possible) and add something like Lavender town (and possibly even more creepy) Thanks, I'd if something's to hard, just tell me.
StoryLine Change - A bit hard since Gen3 games have cutscenes and stuff, plus, it's focused around the legendaries so much, it's hard to change completely.
New Rivals and Gym Leaders - This isn't too hard... but it may be hard to do if they are totally new and not leaders from Kanto or something. I'd have to make OW sprites for each which will take a while, plus I need new battle sprites for them. As for Rivals, Wally is easily changed, but Brendan/May is complicated. What's complicated for them is the fact they use the same sprites as if they were chosen as the player. Ex: I replace May with say, Flannery. If I choose to reset the game and play as a girl, my character will look like Flannery. Get any of that? If you did, congrats.
New Character - I'm not that good of a spriter, so maybe I can change the palletes of an existing character to your liking and name it the new character?
Lavender Town/Creepy - I love this type of stuff... Hmm... I can't make a whole new area as of now, because AdvanceMap has been giving me trouble, but I can sure as hell make an area creepier. I got you.
So.. there you go! Make sure to check out the other mods on here!
Seems good, and the game can take place I guess in a older version. By the way, would this be for VBA (Visual Boy Advanced)? And for the creepy part, maybe custom music? Slightly like Lavanders, but lower (so I don't go Insane).
Also, May and Brendan's new look would be Okay if they are how you said they would be. It would just be like how the games are now.
What do you mean by older version though? You want it taking place in FireRed or LeafGreen or something?
Yes, most of my hacks thus far have been for the VBA emulator. There is also a way to put it on your Android phone, if you're interested. Flash Carts are also available to use, but I can't provide that for you, sorry.
Custom music? I can try, but I'm not that good of an audio editor. I'll see what I can do.
Alright, May/Brendan need a new color scheme now, anything in mind?
Haha... you do know that's a hat Brendan wears right? His hair is naturally black and the hat is white. I'll get started on this as soon as I can. I'm releasing a sort of demo for the Kanto Minimod, so check that out.
I sent some messages to friends and stuff, they said they would, "take a look..." So yeah, that was the best I could do, but maybe if I send it to kids who care about Pokemon...
Hmmmmmmm... I'm a genius...
And, BTW (not to bug you, but...) About how much is done? I was just wondering... And yeah...
As you can see the website is dormant as I cram for my set of finals and tests I have to take soon. So much work I have to do in RL, it's been crazy. I'll put up a small beta of the Kanto Minimod, where Leafeon and Glaceon will be available in FireRed. (Early in the game too.)
As for your Emerald hack:
Finished May and Brendan's new looks. I'm planning to use a Random Name Generator to re-name them, unless you have names in mind...
Done with the Creepy Part. It's going to be an entire town that's creepy, but I'm not telling you which one. XD
I added the Gen 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 starters in. You never asked for 4 and 5, but I did for fun. Originally, they would have been really hard to catch, since their catch rate is set to 45. I fixed that and made them really easy to catch with a 225 catch rate, same as a Wurmple's.
And that's it for now. I'm going to come up with some ideas for the gyms soon when I get time. Don't be afraid to ask how I'm doing!
Oh sorry, I have been busy with life, too... Did my friends even visit the site? If not, they must've lied... Sorry.
About the mod, thank you for working around and through and under and over (etc) your schedule. Um I appreciate the capture rate turned up, helps me out a lot! And the 4th and 5th Gen. Wasn't needed, but I forgot to add that in my original post. Thanks!
Um, could you make a separate page for this mod? I could help. I want to see what Brendon and May look like. Or you could just post it here, it's basically all the same.
Could you possibly add extra gyms? But as of, March(?) you said the "AdvanceMap" thing s being difficult. I just wanted the game to take a while. I hate that the normal Pokemon games are short. This is a suggestion, or something like that.
And I forgot to say one thing. I don't mind the story being similar to the original story, that's fine, but I meant like making it less cheesy. Not perverted or inappropriate, but less kiddy. And some humor would be nice.
Sorry that this is so long and it makes it more complicated that it already is. If you complete it soon, I sadly won't be able to play it, I'm currently on a very long vacation in Michigan and I have no computer, just an iPad Mini.
It's ok, I got one visitor, though. It wasen't your friend, but still, made me happy.
Yeah I thought Gen 4 and Gen 5 Pokes would be a lot more fun. I want to keep you aware that the original programming of the Gen 3 games only has slots for 25 new Pokemon to be added. Which means only 25 new Pokemon can be added without replacing any old ones.
Also, I've run into trouble working with Emerald. The problem is the sprites and I'm a horrible spriter. M being totally honest. Emerald has animated sprites so I need a frame for both the stationary and the animation. So, I don't have sprites for the second frame. And Chaos Rush (my sprite provider, he has a resource on PokeCommunity) isn't working on animations as of yet.
However, it's ok. I've shifted over to Ruby and it's working just fine. I hope that's ok.
I could possibly add more gyms, I'll look into it. If not, I'll find other things to throw in.
Of course I can make it less cheesy. I've been working on that in a dialogue patch. Brendan/May would be able to talk and reply to what people have to say. I don't want them talking too much, because they have to still be the strong silent type.
It's ok, if I do finish before then, I'll let you know. There is a way to put ROMS on an iPad, but you would have to jailbreak it for that and that's too much work...
You said there is a maximum of 25 you can add? That's fine too. Could you add Pikachu and Eevee?
Some trolling would be nice... Because I'm going to do a YouTube series on this.. Hopefully. So humor and trolls are great things for videos.
In Ruby, your main foe (excluding your rival) is Team Magma, right? So maybe you could make it more like they are good guys. But the dialog is all that's needed to change, no new scenes.
I saw this mod where there was this store in almost every city that had good pokemon for sale. The building looked a lot like a pokemart, only it had a lighter color roof. That would be cool to have. Maybe have pokemon for sale that are good against the local gym. This is optional, if you can't do it, no problem.
Sadly I cannot jailbrake my iPad. My parents would kill me. And I don't know how... XD
PS: I lost my password, I tried it over and over, and it hasn't worked. So I'm going to make a new account...
Trolling as in what? Like a random trainer with 4 Full Restores?
Humor is no problem. Would you like there to be curse words or no? Either way, it's fine.
I'm like N, lol, I don't feel great about the sale of Pokemon. What I did plan to add was a EV training cave in every city for you and make the gyms more difficult. Wild Pokemon would be available in each city too. So in the tall grass, you'll find some Pokemon that may help you with the next gym. I'm going to add lots of cool features to cities, no problem.
And don't worry about it, haha. When you make a new account, just let me know it's you.
Ok ummm surprise me on what pokemon you add. Just not crap pokemon... I hate that.... Also, when I said eevee, I ment it's evolvsions, too. The newest one thats fairy type isn't nessisary, just the like other seven(?) ones.
3) Nah, I was just making reference to the fact a person like N would not aprrove the sale of Pokemon.
4) Realistic... I don't know. Maybe I will, maybe I won't.
5) Effort values. When a Pokemon is defeated in the wild, it gives off points that increase your Pokemon's stats. Put it simply, EVs are like the vitamins(Iron, Carbos, HP Up, etc..) that you get for defeating wild Pokemon. That's why people grind their Pokemon and they get stronger than thy normally would. You can google it if you want. My definition is not the best.
6) It won't be hard, trust me. I promise.
7) Yeah, exactly what I meant. Basically you can catch Pokemon in cities now. Except Littleroot.
8) So by this you mean Pokemon you catch are actually beneficial? If that's the case, then yes. I can even boost the stats of the weaker Pokemon up a bit, like Plusle and Minun.
9) Sure. I am again, not a scripter, so yeah. I plan on making the city more like the gym leader. For example, Roxanne is a Rock type leader so her town with had rock-like asthetics, maybe caves instead of houses, or boulders lining the borders of town.. It'll look cool.
10) If you wish, I can make Cyndaquil one of the starters. I plan on putting one gen of starters in each early route. So 101, would have Kanto, 102 would have Johto, 103 would have Hoenn, etc.
About the PS3 thing, yeah. My username is hushush4. Unfortuantely, my TV blew out and I need a new one. So yeah, no games for me until maybe the beginning of next month. Once I do get a new TV, I'd be willing to play. I'll probably be rusty at zombies by then, haha.
Also, I was planning to give you a beta release of it, completed up to the first gym is all. Just so you can try it out and see how you like it so far.
Oh, and I put in DS styled sprites. The sprites look like how they do in Black and White. Most Pokemon have them, but there is about 20 or so that I don't have sprites for like Deoxys and Milotic. It's just an added touch anyway.
Last thing, I swear. Do you have a favorite type? Because I was on the bus today and an idea just hit me. A hack that makes every Pokemon a certain type. That would be amazing. Like a Dark type hack would make Bulbasaur Grass/Dark. I don't know where that idea came form, but I like it. Tell me what you think. That's a whole seperate hack, though.
I don't think I want Cyndaquil as a starter. The reason is, Hoenn is the only region (I'm a horrible speller) that I actually like all the starters. Like Kanto, I don't care for Charmander. Johto, I would almost never choose anything other than cyndaquil, unless I was going to trade all the starters so I have all 3 to make the game easier. And then the rest of the starters are like all other pokemon for me. They are all just some pokemon. So, no, Cyndaquil should be kept wild...
A beta would be nice, but sadly, as I said before, I'm STILL on vacation. But in a week I'll be back with my PC.
A favourite type? Uhhh, not rally... Hmmmm well... I guess if I could choose 3, they would be: Electric, Dark, Physic...
And My PS3 name is Zigcaddy. I'll send you a Friend Request, even if you can't accept (or decline :|) it for a while.
Oh yeah, how hard is this mod/hack? Because if its easy, well, good job! But if it was hard, jeez man, I said you could abandon some things that made it overwhelming! Anyway, thanks!
Alright the starters will be wild. The starters should be kept the same then, right?
I'll try to make a beta for you to try out soon.
I'm still thinking about the side hack I had an idea about. Maybe it'll just be limited to the starters and legendaries as all one type.
I'm not sure when, but when I do go on I'll add you.
On a scale of one to ten... Eight. The harder part is mapping and scripts. Sometimes I forget to make backups when using unlzGBA to edit trainer sprites and I have to start over because it messes it up. The easier parts are recolorint the sprites, putting new sprites in and adding the Pokemon data. There's nothing hard about adding new Pokemon, it's just time consuming due to the fact I have to input all their stats, moves, tm data, egg groups, exp gain, etc. Text editing what people say is pretty easy, but you have to know what people say in different places in order to search for the dialogue in the program I use. So yeah, it's both easy and hard.
On a side note, things I have added:
- National Dex from the start.
- Updated Moves where possible to Gen 5 standards (Ex: Rattata learns Bite at Level 7.)
Yep. I'm doing it for both FireRed and Ruby. It's coming out good so far. I just need to add some better sprites, like the DS ones and fix some dialogue to make it more eerie. I may make towns have a mist over it. The dialogue is what you meant by errors right? I'll fix it soon.
I cannot donwload to much crap my my mac, and the whole this was confusing... Urgh, my school mac cannot support this, maybe when my PC is fixed I'll play it. (That should be soon, BTW. :) PS I know you don't liek it if eye speaks liek dis and things like 'BTW' but I'm in a hurry.)
Ok we'll I see that it says your femmale, so I reckon that's something to do with it. (But you never know, many guys out there like to pretend to be women. I my self personally like playing as women in video games because it looks funny when someone playing as a man or something get torn up by some girly girl.)
And I don't play Ghosts because the story sucked and Extinction mode sucks. The Multiplayer is okay but it lacks the addictiveness of BO2. I really do love infected and search and rescue now though...
