    Hello! Here I'm creating a rom hack of Pokemon X/Y. There will be a legit version, and a randomized one.
    FEATURES
    - A brand new story!
    - Harder than the original game
    - Custom models for some pokemons and trainers
    - French and english languages
    -Maybe music will be changed
    - New shop

    But I will need people for:
    1: Creating custom textures for the protagonist, lengendaries and the Team Flare ( Textures have to match for the version, like Rainbow X need to have "rainbow" textures and Shadow Y, darker ones)
    2: Translating the story from french to english
    3: Maybe ideas for the story

    HOW TO PLAY IT

    You will need a CFW to play it, but I may put the romfs and exefs in the folder if you want to mess with or play it trought HANS if new3ds

    If you want to help, send an email to this adress: xenoversking@gmail.com

    Discord server: https://discord.gg/9mrnK5

    Hope you like the project! :D

    PROGRESS

    Legit build:

    Story: Started for Rainbow X
    Teams: Ready, need to edit in pk3ds
    Texture: Nothing has been made
    Music: Started to find matching music to be replaced
    Shop: In build

    Randomized Build:

    *after legit build*

    I can ask for help if i know that I'm not good for those things right? Or it's forbidden? Also it's not like I'm asking to do everything for me

    I'd love to help with the translation but, you know, free time... Hope this will be good when it will become true

    Guess I'll have to try Discord, but I have to warn you, there's a time difference of about 6 hours between Belgium and Canada

    That's fine and all, but it usually means that almost no work has been done so far, the project is too ambitious, and therefor will never be completed.

    Please prove me wrong. What have you already done so far?

    I started to write the story, creating teams for the elite 4, rivals and all the others that come along
    I made the shop on paper I will do it later
    Making changes to pokemon for the legit build (on paper to remember them)
    I will randomize later, because of the teams
    I downloaded all the songs I want to put in the game, like the music of the Pokemon League will be changed for the one made by GlitchXcity

    I'm only asking help for the things that I'm not able to make because I do not have the skills for (translating), I don't understand a thing ( textures) and maybe other people have great idas for the story ( I'm not saying I can't write the story)

    You should make the thread when you've done a fair chunk of progress so we know there's something to look forward to.
    I know I'm being negative but realistically all you've done is written some story. Do you know how many ambitious hacks get past that point? Next to none.
    How are you planning on implementing the story and scripting the events that make it run?

    I made the tread so everyone know what they are waiting for ( if there are people waiting )

    I will add my progress, when I will really start the messing part

    Well I may be the one that will prove you wrong and release this hack, even if it takes weeks and months ( Asia81 made one, it was great but due to lack of time he closed it )

    Playing the game while writing text, to make sure everything is fine. Also I'm preparing this project for a while so I know what I'm doing ( mostly x) )

    My point was that most people write up a story, realize they can't do half the things they want to do without ASM hacking and just abandon their project.
    There's no real point in people "knowing what they're waiting for" when there's really nothing to show them.
    I'd love to be proven wrong but there are a lot of abandoned Pokemon ROM hacks on this forum, especially XY and ORAS hacks because they have very little documentation and hacking tools compared to other games in the series.

    What I meant was, how are you planning on implementing your story into the game and changing in-game events to make it work? Are you hex editing the contents of the romFS or do you have a private program or something? I know you can edit text in Pk3DS but making new events is another story.
