    I found this little gem from years ago:
    This is a hack I made years ago that I dropped pretty early in development, as you can tell by the way I spoke and some of the things I said I was definitely younger, so I decided that I'm going to pick it back up.

    If you need any help with this hack, both my boyfriend and I know a thing or two about hacking pokemon games

    This will be slightly tough, but in my younger days I was a top-grade scripter, and over the years I've been sharpening my mapping, too. The real problem will be the clock based events and sprites.

    Thanks for the compliments, guys [​IMG]

    I wish you luck, Bro. I will slap this on my M3 Perfect the second you release a patch; this idea seems brilliant.

    I do have a rather major question. Should I keep this as Harvest Moon or should I make it Rune Factory?

    If you can somehow incorporate RF elements to it... I would like that. [​IMG]

    This sounds amazing. I always thought pokemon games should be a little more deep than they are. This is perfect! [​IMG]

    It's more of an RPG, and that way I can really get a pokemon-based story in there while also keeping to the life/farming simulator that is Harvest Moon, So I guess this'll be Rune Factory.

    This is a really interesting topic to have stumbled upon. Got any kind of concept images I can feast upon while I wait for actual in-game images? LOL

    I did, but they aren't good enough. I'm remaking the hack now, completely from scratch. I'm in the planning stages now, that way I won't have to hack and plan at the same time, which is REALLY slow.

    Oh.

    Well, what about the concepts? Are there any changes to those?

    If there are any good spriters out there, could you offer me any tips? I've never been the best spriter, in fact, in hacking it's my weak point.

    UPDATE: I'm likely putting this hack on hiatus. While I like the idea, there is a much bigger, more ambitious, more personal hack that I want to work on that goes by the name of Pokemon Glory: Origins. It follows the creation, morals, and future of the Pokemon world as well as Mew's extreme importance in it.
