Pokémon Secrets and Rumours Redux BETA 1 is here

Hack Name: Pokémon Secrets and Rumours for the Graphical Snobs  ;) Pokémon Secrets and Rumours Redux

Hack of: Fire Red

Introduction: This is the game that's the Fire Red to Mateo's Red. He knows I'm doing this, he's even given me some guidance and help.

Anyway, redux is an adjective meaning "brought back, restored" (from the Latin reducere - bring back) used in literature and film titles, and in my case, videogame titles. (Restored? Ooo, that sounds a bit insulting in this case... not my intention though.)

Ok, I'm assuming everyone has played Mateo's Pokémon Secrets and Rumours or at least heard of it, if not, well, go play it.

Anyway, this hack is the result of a conversation between Mateo, myself and a few of the other members at the old Twilight Hacking forums and this basically came to life from there.

Storyline: Follows the same storyline as Mateo's version but with 3rd gen graphics. So all the stuff that will happen in Pokémon Secrets and Rumours will also appear here, although some may be modified due to various reasons. Yes, the fat guy will still say technology is incredible! Or whatever the Fire Red version was...

Mateo uses Charmander so I used Charmander too.

Look, look, Moltres is back where he belongs.

Hey, where's this cave go?

Ok, is this stretching the page? I can move it if there's a need to.

Other stuff: The original RBY TM list is back and eventually Pokémon will learn moves as they did in RBY.

Beta 1 is here!  :D Goes to just before the Rock Tunnel. Bill's house and the Underground Path are locked in this beta.

Ok, I think I covered all my bases... Oh, please tell me if the .ips file doesn't work.


Redux is 'on hold'. I have however found the files, but it's still (pretty much) dead at the moment.
I wonder if that's actually a good thing...

Ah, glad to see this up and running here! To anyone who may be skeptical, yes, this is an authorized remake, kinda like Rijon Adventures is to Brown. Hope you all enjoy it.

Re: Pokémon Secrets and Rumours Redux BETA 1 is here

It's a good idea, but I REALLY dislike the mapping style you've used.

First of all, you have to not leave so much space in between tiles. Second of all, you have to use the 5 (I believe) grass tiles in an equal balance among the map. There are a lot of unused space outside of that map you posted, there are way too many flowers in a row. Lastly, you used the wrong tiles for the little blue house, as there's a different tile for the top of the door and for blank space.

Re: Pokémon Secrets and Rumours Redux BETA 1 is here

It's looking much better than I'd imagined it would. You've certainly done good work directing it in much the same direction as Mateo.

Can't wait to test out the old rumours on a new game! It'd also be fun to slip in some of the FR/LG secrets as well, if you can manage.

Unless I do a lot of messing around, I don't think I can't fit Minusle in for it's a R/S/E secret.  :P

Thanks for having a look.  :D

Lookin good, Sky_Queen.

Btw, for those of you who may still be wondering, I've been helping in the idea department with this, even though she is making it. You know, kinda like Koolboyman did with Rijon Adventures. This will actually include a few hints of things to come in SaR that aren't quite out yet  ;)

Re: Pokémon Secrets and Rumours Redux BETA 1 is here

I haven't played either of the remakes, so I don't know just how different they are from the originals aside from graphics. Just how much work are you needing to do to "downgrade" the base to more closely match the original Red and Blue, and how much of that downgrading is absolutely necessary?

I'd like to do a run through of the beta, but if it's just simply downgrading then I'm not too enticed. Without any implemented rumours, or hints of them, I'm not really sure how much was actually done.

Don't worry, I'll get the Mew in the next Beta everyone.  ☺ (No issues with obeying either.  :D)

Re: Pokémon Secrets and Rumours Redux BETA 1 is here

How so? That'd be cool, but for me to really feel that the hack is actually "Secrets and Rumours", you only need to put some indication. Like the NPC behind the Museum.

Re: Pokémon Secrets and Rumours Redux BETA 1 is here

Okay, after not playing with Pokemon hacks for a really long time, I decided to start playing again, since I'm really bored in the summer. I'm trying to play this hack, but here's the download:

Sorry, the file you requested is not available.

Possible reasons include:

- File date limit has expired.
- File was not successfully uploaded.

Please contact the uploader and ask them to upload the file again. sendspace is not able to help you in this matter.

Could you reupload the file or something?
