Miksy91's Christmas Hack

Hack of: Pokemon Gold (Winter Wonderland)


I haven't picked a name for my own Christmas hack so it's just going to be a Christmas hack :D
Anyway, this hack takes place in Johto and the main hero is the one of Gold/Silver.
However, this is about his childhood instead of the original G/S/C adventure.

Story

Hiro has waited long for this day, finally it's another Christmas.
Earlier, Hiro had written a letter to Santa Claus explaining he wanted to get a new bike and a pokemon game as christmas presents.
Nevertheless, things don't go the way they should...

Pictures

Some will be up by Christmas as well as the downloadlink for the hack.

Credits

Mateo for the tiles used in the hack

Haha, sounds intriguing (He gets a Pokémon game alright, eh!?) Looking forward to this, might be fun to play and kill some time.

Re: Miksy91's Christmas Hack

I just want to correct you on something, it's Ethan not Hiro, and while it is unrelated, it's Silver not Kamon. Will Ethan get an outfit change like in Mateo's hack or will it be the same as in GSC? Also will we get to battle Santa Claus instead of Red on Mt. Silver?

Hiro is how he is defined in GSCs game code. The same goes for Kamon...

Oh, right..

The outfit change is already in the game as this is based on Winter Wonderland.
You won't get to battle Santa Claus but you'll meet him in the hack anyways.

Actually, this is incorrect.

Hiro is only one of the names you can choose from when the game begins, that's all.
Kamon is just something what a random person who created the table file for RBYGSC, wanted to name the person called with assembly code (relating to your rival).

Re: Miksy91's Christmas Hack

So I am guessing you prefer to call them Hiro and Kamon? I don't mind that. Oh and will the maps be changed like the Yellow ROM Hack you made? You know where the difficulty is raised. Like Dark Future I'll have to wait when this is available to be played.

However, his official name is Ethan as seen in HG/SS.

Aye, but we call Green (the girl) Green, even though her FRLG name is Leaf. It doesn't really matter, seeing as it is all the same person with a different alias.

Re: Miksy91's Christmas Hack

Maps may change a little bit but this hack takes place in Johto (and will possibly end already near Violet City but you'll see when I've got the release up).
This is going to have a couple of big events but nothing else really.

"This hack sounds fun. Will it deviate much from the original Pokemon style? :D"
Like Dark Future ? Maybe a little bit :D

Re: Miksy91's Christmas Hack

Update on the hack !

I decided to change the areas a little bit and the mapping is now almost done - maps of all existing areas in G/S/C introduced in the hack are now re-mapped, new ones not edited yet ;)

Re: Miksy91's Christmas Hack

A video update
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoW9diYIsOc

As you can see, New Bark hasn't changed graphically that much from Mateo's Winter Wonderland but the hack is still quite a lot different from it.
I perhaps showed too much in the video comparing to the size of the hack itself.

Re: Miksy91's Christmas Hack

Looking good!

Also I would like to say that I borrowed your idea of the player's grandparents coming over to visit, and you will receive credit in the thread for that when I release it.

No need to credit me for that :P
It's just an idea after all.

Haha alright :p But I wanted to at least mention it, especially since your hack is based on mine, that way people know you did it first.

Right, that makes sense :)
Although, I'm not sure when I get chrismas hack done (I tried to rush it at first and later realized I wouldn't get it done till christmas and now haven't been working with it for a couple of days).

I could release it later in January - it shouldn't be a problem that way.

Re: Miksy91's Christmas Hack

I'd still play it even if it was January. Just take your time mate, and try not to rush it. I know from experience that rushing to get it done typically results in several bugs that aren't caught and sometimes features dropped that you didn't have time to add.

While I'm done with large edits, I'm still bug testing and occasionally adding in small things (such as text changes, and quick edits here and there) and probably will up until the release.

Re: Miksy91's Christmas Hack

Update !

I've again gained some motivation to continue with this hack and now, I've completely finished New Bark and Route 29 (there will be lots of new things in both of them). Currently finishing Cherrygrove Town (it will be a lot smaller than the one you see in normal GSC, remember that this hack is from the past) :D

Very short one - a one hour gameplay at most.

I find it much more enjoyable to continue Dark Future than this but I still have pretty much everything stored in my computer for this hack (ideas and rom files). It's possible that I'll continue working on this later this year and try to have it available this Christmas - really depends on whether I feel like doing so or not.

For now, you can watch a gameplay video of this hack in my youtube channel which concludes everything I've done so far. This hack will only be a small project anyway so I don't see a reason why I couldn't finish it later this year.

Nice but seriously, play dark future if you haven't yet.
This hack can't even be compared with it's quality.
