    Information

    This is a ROM hack of Pokemon Heart Gold which aims to remake the classic game Pokémon Red. Dialogue is taken from the Gameboy Advance versions (Fire Red & Leaf Green) however there are no plans to include the Sevii Islands like there are in those games. I will be trying to make this similar to the original, but with the DS's features. This way the ROM can be used as a base for others to start their own hack.

    There will be a Soul Blue version released once this is close enough to completion and I also plan on making a Yellow version once Heart Red & Soul Blue have been finished.

    Features:
    • Updated type chart (Fairy type)
    • 493 Pokemon
    • Pokemon follow you
    • Classic GameBoy game in DS style graphics, with touchscreen
    • Day & Night Cycle
    • ORAS mini-icons
    Progress:
    • 3 Gym Badges
    • 4 Rival Battles
    • 4 In-Game trades
    • Correct Trainer battles
    • Day Care (with breeding)
    • Many (some WIP) scripted events (Mt Moon, Bill's House, S.S. Anne ect..)
    • Running Shoes & Bike are obtainable
    Please report bugs here or contact me if you'd like to help.

    Download

    The archive below contains the patch and the patching program (xdelta).

    This must be applied to a Pokemon Heart Gold (U) ROM (md5: A62E7ABBC7B6A352793EC8F75E6ACE55).

    - Pokemon Heart Red v0.4.7.5.zip (Mirror) (Latest)
    - Pokemon Heart Red v0.4.7.4.zip (Mirror)
    - Pokemon Heart Red v0.4.7.3.zip (Mirror)
    - Pokemon Heart Red v0.4.7.2.zip

    Recommended Emulators: DeSmuME, DraStic (Android/phone)

    Also works on Flash carts.

    FAQ
    1. What are you going to do about Mt Moon and Cinnabar Island since they look different in HG compared to Red/Blue?
      • For now, I'm going to leave as is. When the hack progresses further I plan on using a map editor to make them look like the originals.

    2. Will you be expanding the pokedex?
      • I hope so.

    3. Can we go to Johto?
      • I will probably make a separate version once the ROM is complete which opens up the area (maybe with a story). I also want to look into the possibility of adding Sinnoh as a 3rd region.

    Yeah it seems it doesn't work on flash carts. Too bad, i really wanted to try this hack.

    EDIT: It needs the "U" HeartGold rom, rejects the "E" as CRC mismatch. Even though the patching process worked fine, it blackscreens on my dstwo.

    Sorry about that, will update the main thread.

    Doesn't seem to work on pre-patched roms. Needs a clean HG(U) ROM.

    MD5: A62E7ABBC7B6A352793EC8F75E6ACE55

    EDIT: I updated the main thread with suggested emulators.

    It works fine on PCs / Android. Hopefully someone can help me figure out the issue with flash carts.

    Yeah. SDSME doesn't repack HGSS properly and it will not launch on hardware as a result. However, he did recently open-source the application, and I did build the latest source version, which I think fixes this bug, if you want to try it.

    As for your hack, I really like this. It's been something that I've wanted to do, but haven't had the will to do so. I wish you luck on this, as it has a lot of potential. Additionally, how do you plan to take care of Cinnibar Island? Do you plan to attempt to remap the island as to give it a not-volcano version?

    I have that version, but I'm not sure if I saved it last in PPRE or SDSME.

    Next release I'll make the final build with the 1.9 version.

    Although script compiling doesn't work in 1.9.

    I guess I'll try to remap it.

    Small update.

    Code:
    ---v0.3c
    
    - Many sprites implemented for the main protagonist, including back sprite.
    - Minor dialogue fixes.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I could use someone with some sprite editing experience.

    For the trainer card, gender select, ect..

    Hey, haven't actually tested your game out yet, but love the idea! When a bit more is added to the game I'll give it a shot though :)

    Keep the updates rollin' in!

    Well, I may be wrong but I really think you used my Red sprites from Pokémon Silver Blue. If I'm right, please put the credits. Thank you.

    You created those sprites yourself in an image editor?

    They're all over the internet by various usernames. I wasn't sure who to credit.

    http://chrisx698.deviantart.com/art/Pokemon-HG-SS-Sprite-Red-165246835

    But yes, I took the remaining sprites I was missing from your ROM.

    If you created them yourself I'll give you credit.

    As I said in Silver Blue's topic ("Thanks to internet artists [...]") most of these pictures are not mine but I had to edit almost all to make possible to put them in-game. So you could give me and these artist some credits :)

    Also, I'm supporting your project! To make a real R/B/Y remake requires hard work and I hope you can finish it.
