    Pokemon Black Ruby & White Sapphire

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    {Yes I stole the box art.}

    Introduction:
    Ever since playing Pokemon Emerald again It just got me thinking on if I should maybe hack Pokemon B/W to bring back some of the nostalgic things such as Gyms, E4, Legends, Wild Pokemon from Pokemon R/S/E.At first I thought it would be hard but after a while I realized with all the Pokemon B/W hacking tools It is possible for me to do so.This hack is not planned to edit story but it might if the tools are released.

    Features:

    • All pokemon can be caught however only 3rd Gen pokemon before the E4
    • The starters Torchic, Treecko and Mudkip will have their DW abilities.
    • Legends Reshiram and Zekrom can only be caught after E4 at dragon spiral tower because Groudon/Kyogre will be at the E4
    • Male Hero and Female will have their R/S/E appearance
    • All Gyms will have edited sprites for leaders and teams
    • The E4 is R/S/E base
    Progress:

    0%

    Need testers, sprite editors and wild pokemon insterters.


    This will be 100% done most probably by mid June.

    Good luck, seems the number of BW hacks is growing pretty quickly, and this one seems like a nice change. Also, there's a typo in the second feature.

    Which is the whole point of making a hack of an existing Pokémon game.

    You seriously didn't think he was making this from scratch, did you?

    He mean he wanted it to look as good as a real Pokemon game, but those hacks are hard to come by.

    And it's pretty difficult since we don't know how to script or map yet...

    I seriously don't think anyone could be bothered to completely map out a previous gen game.

    I mean, really?

    EDIT: Awesomeness, welcome to my new, pictureless, sig.

    Maybe i can be become you tester but i no active on gbatemp, but on pokemon project forum for research many thing about pokemon BW, yeah i have own pokemon BW hack project but maybe suspend for research some data on BW (yeah thankyou for twistmetal, drayano, and many people on pokemon project is help me a lot for more easy editing. so i active on project pokemon and not on pokemon community or gbatemp because i no have idea these website and no someone help me or intersting data on there (but for patch i always search on gbatemp).....

    yeah i have skill :
    - manipulate ROM BW, i no have skill on last generation like HGSS, but i was know Hacking BW, about editing sprite ( you can see my youtube channel for sure).
    - text? is my skill, i was find anything but i lazy to change all because i must know unkown file on pokemon BW first after there i change it
    - sorry my bad spelling, but i know english.
    - stat editing? i can editing manual via HEX editing, is usefull if twistfatal tools is buggy or wrong give a value..
    - kazotools is usefull tools, well for alternate form is my skill, i was know some formula, yay but wondering about rotom form, but now no tested yet...
    - and many skill

    But i noticed you:
    - if you change started, you must change sprite too.. (i no give a location, because you not help me on my ROM hack project [​IMG])
    - alternative form is some reason not working on trainer, kazowar is not complete automatic editing, some part is gone and wrong, but is useful for editing for now.
    - you can see my old list on pokemon comunity but is have wrong place, sorry for that but i was have new one is was correctly and completely in my new research method.
    - i hacked pokemon BW since japanese version, in US/E release is have encrypted name on a/0/0/2 and a/0/0/3, is look gone but is hidden data or encrypt data.
    - trainer class or modified pokemon trainer, unkown value is important than other data, if wrong, maybe is no be hard!.
    - i was discovery twistfatal tools, and know is working, well sometimes is give you error.

    For now i study for scripting, but anyway good luck ! i hope you done quickly ^o^, i was found 5/6 pokemon BW hacking like you, i was done 44 % on my project (is not english, but my language, indonesia) [​IMG]

    It's been done. DestineJagold did it with all 3 of his hacks, do to them being set in different regions. It's not unheard of for a hacker to remap a full region. I never planned to due to the fact that my hacks are usually set in existing regions with altered maps.
