Instant subscribe to the topic, this should be good. Even better when the screenshots come in.

Forgot to mention: in addition to talking about this hack, this thread will also discuss ways to combat glitches I may find out about, including those already mentioned in the opening post.

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

For example, how do I center the title for the Green Version?

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

First screenshots posted, all from the early part of the game, including the badly-proportioned Green Version title and bits of the anti-censorship.

https://github.com/pret/pokered/blob/ma … n.asm#L388

You would just need to adjust the coord macro there for green version so it starts slightly to the left when placing green version. If I remember, the first number modifies the horizontal axis, so you would just change that 7 to a 6 to make it start one tile to the left. Or I may be remembering wrong, in that case, just play with it until it looks right.

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

Good enough for me.

There's still other glitches to work out, as mentioned above.

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

Nice but wouldn't it be better to make Mew an event like other legendaries in the game(like mewtwo zapdos etc)?

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

Tell me about it. I still consider Mew appearing from beating the Cerulean Gym Swimmer to capturing it to be an event (of sorts, at least).

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

Oh, I'm translating the hack into Spanish right now. But I'm going to need some help, especially when it comes to translating names Latino-style.

Right now I've come up with, in terms of names:

RED = ROJO
ASH = SASHA
JACK = JAIME

LEAF = HOJA
AMANDA = AMANDA
JUNE = JUNIA

GREEN = VERDE
GARY = REGIS
JOHN = JUAN

SCARLET = ROJA
CASSIE = CASILDA
JANE = JUANITA

BLUE = AZUL
KAZ = FLOREN
JEAN = JEAN

SCARLET = ROJA
LEAF = HOJA
NICOLE = LUNA

RED = ROJO
GREEN = VERDE
RITCHIE = RICARDO

BULBASAUR = BULBASAUR
CHARMANDER = SALAMECHA
SQUIRTLE = TORTAGUA

BROCK = PEDRO (derived from Greek "petra", meaning "stone")
MISTY = SERENA (similar to "sirena", Spanish for "mermaid")
LT. SURGE = MAJOR BOB (stereotypical American name, as in French and German translations)
ERIKA = ERIKA (same as Japanese)
KOGA = KOGA (same as English)
SABRINA = SABRINA (same as English)
BLAINE = EDUARDO (from "Edward", as in "Edward Nygma", the Riddler)
GIOVANNI = GIOVANNI (same as English)

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

I've been doing a lot more updating on Poké Community than here, but I've got a Github repository up for both my standard and full-color hacks. (Foreign-language hacks in progress, will upload their reps if anyone so requests.) Feel free to compile and help me out with them.

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

Due to a major scandal over at PokéCommunity, I'm moving all activities back here, following a prolonged absence. Put simply, this site missed a lot, so I'll be blunt here. I rebooted this hack at least a couple of times, but I seem to be in stable territory now. The current incarnation started with v10.0 Summer of Adventure last summer, and the currently available version is 10.0.4, available for download here. At some point this month, I intend to release v10.1 Mister Rogers, currently in development on Github.

These are the current repositories, by the way:

nostalgia-red (the base version, in English)
nostalgia-red-francais (the French translation)
nostalgia-red-deutsch (the German translation)
nostalgia-yellow (the Yellow version, only available in English at present)

Opening post to be updated later on.

Glad to see you’re back on Skeetendo buddy. :)


Caramba! I hate it when there’s a lot of hair on the floor! Here, I’ll go clean up!
Woo! Feels good when the floor is clean, doesn’t it? Let’s groove.

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

Due to some serious glitching, nostalgia-yellow is out of the hack until further notice, as I'm going to wait until I can add the crysaudio engine more effectively.

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

Further, while I look deep and hard into how to prevent a "corrupted stop" when debugging in BGB, 10.1 Mister Rogers as a whole is on indefinite hold, though I still hope to have it out this year.

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

At this point, I think it would be better if Yellow was its own hack, in the form of a split-version hack I like to call the Special Mascot Editions (Yellow Version for Pikachu and Brown Version for Eevee), closer in feel and storyline style to Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! but without the complicated Go mechanics.

That sounds pretty cool, honestly. This hack is looking good thus far and I'm excited for more updates. Best of luck with everything.

Re: [Red Hack] Pokémon Tri-Color Nostalgia Series

While I will eventually incorporate many features from Fire Red and Leaf Green once I sufficiently upgrade the Pokémon Data Structure, one thing I will NOT add is Green Tea. It's just too damn scientifically inaccurate, in real life it would only make those poor guards want to hit the can sooner rather than later!
