Re: Pokemon Chrome

Strange. Hmm, I'll have to look into that more. Hopefully we can get this worked out without you having to lose data from a backup.

Re: Pokemon Chrome

I'd aim for fixing the glitch by preserving the 256-tile hack.
Taking it out would also take out the possibility of using more than 0x80 tiles, right?
I already found out that 0x15EE is the offset where the assembly for changing the bytes at 0x8FE0 (if I remember correctly) is although I don't think that will fix anything. In 0x8FE0-0x8FFF the game stores graphics data for the cubes and black screen which is displayed after "talking to trainer" ends.
However, you could do this - open VBA's VRAM Viewer and set "Automatically update" on and you'll see whether anything is loaded to that offset or not. It contains graphics of numbers 8 and 9 when font is loaded.

Anyway, I tried to search for the patch file for the tile hack earlier but couldn't find it.
I feel like helping you out with this although I don't have time to hack until Friday but that shouldn't be a problem :)

Re: Pokemon Chrome

You could consult my patch readme and just look at the one offset you need to change things around a bit at to be able to use more than 0x80 blocks.

Miksy91, would you mind giving me your email address? I'd like to talk to you about all of this a bit more.

Why don't you just e-mail me through this site (because don't feel like giving it to every possible person lurking around here) ?

Basically, it's quite easy to fix the bugs. You've probably just got to change the data in the offset where the game does "VRAM changes" back to what it was before though I'm not sure yet because I haven't looked at it.

Re: Pokemon Chrome

UPDATE:

Miksy91 took a look at the game, and was able to fix the glitches I was having. Also, the encounter rate problem. Wouldn't have been possible without him.

I'm now fixing up the last few minor bugs and I can release a Demo. However, I'm debating on whether to increase the length of it. So far, it will be this long:
-First Town
-First Dungeon
-First Route

And end before you can enter the Second Town. My question is, would you guys like me to work on it and make it longer, and delay the Demo release, or just release it after I correct the few glitches I have left?

Here's three new images:

The second two are of my new, redesigned PokeCenter. The second floor will have salesmen as the PokeMart is now part of the PokeCenter. Any criticism is gladly appreciated.

Re: Pokemon Chrome

I love the concept. Not entirely sure about the blue floor on the second level, it looks a little... "off" to me somehow. But Other than that, looking good. I think its cool that you went with that, I was originally going to make a multi-level pokecenter when I was making that tileset, and ended up scrapping the idea. (Mine would have been more tedious, because it would have placed the second-floor NPCs up top, which would have meant adding events to every map, and this was eventually replaced with 1 floor Pokemon centers and the Global Trade Station on South Isle which has all of the 2nd floor functionality).

It look like the girl hair was part of the blue tile. (Pic1)

Re: Pokemon Chrome

Quick poll. What do you think looks better as the floor tiles? I have two different shades of blue.

First or second? I know there's not too huge of a difference, but still. Thanks for all of the support!

Re: Pokemon Chrome

I originally thought the darker one looked better, but the more I look at it I can see the second is a much better choice. Everyone's feedback definitely helped, thanks, it's very appreciated.

I think tile nowdays should be light coloured because we need to take care of our eyes :)

Re: Pokemon Chrome

Time for another quick update. Here are some new screenshots:

What could have caused this cave to have collapsed? It seems the police are investigating...

battlesystem.png
MobiBattle System? Sounds like a new feature to me.

Revealing another city name and a route. That female character looks important too.. [I realize it is Kris, but it's just a placeholder until I make a new female sprite]

Re: Pokemon Chrome

Thanks for all of the feedback. Yes, I came up with the arrow idea when I messing with the font. I'm not sure if any of the newer generation games use it, as I've never played them.
