WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus!

I found this on archive.org, never thought I would ever play it again...
This was my best hack, but mostly because of a few silly jokes I liked.

That and the fact that it's the only gameboy game ever to feature Cowboys From Hell on the titlescreen!

Damn thing made me have to download WINE just to patch the rom!

Re: WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus!

Played through what you had done there.
I'm quite impressed by the things you had been able to done (already as a kid?), with this one and the old demo of Diamond.

Can't tell whether you were joking in the first post about this being your best hack because of silly jokes or not but personally, only thing I was thinking about when talking to most people out there was "What the f***?". Didn't like most of the dialogue out there, it was simply too immature.
Of course, you made the hack several years ago... I could imagine doing hacks similar to this one as a kid if I was good at hacking as right now.

Re: WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus!

Man, I'm glad to play this updated version. I only played WT Talking Cactus 3 (from 2002) once and had no idea what to think of that. This makes more sense to me now, although I haven't understand any deeper meaning. I always saw it as some kind of tech demo with nice graphics.

Additionally, the Pokemap zip folder comes also with a cactus ips for Red.

Re: WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus!

Right, The World Famous Talking Cactus from Pokemap was made by Phillip Rueben to show off what could be done with Pokemap.
But, at least to my understanding, it is completely unrelated to WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus.

Sure! Would you prefer sendspace, or mediafire, or what? I know some people can't manage to download from some places.

Re: WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus!

So I'm playing this for the first time and I talked to the guy who talks about the credits in the second town right after taking the bus and when it displayed the email it said "Give a nickname to the PIDGEOT you recieved?" and the game got really glitchy until I paused and unpaused the game. And since there's no option for POKEMON on the pause menu, I seleted the berry I got and selected "Give" and I had a level 80 Pidgeot that was holding a Burn Heal... :P And every time you talk to him you get another level 80 Pidgeot with a burn heal.

Although, this was quite the experience!
May I ask, where did you get the font you used? It looks strangely alooot like the font I've already put in my hack that I haven't even released any screenshots for.. :P

Re: WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus!

I really like the graphic work and the changes in title sequence and introduction. I'm referring to both games of course! It's nice to see that drastic changes are all possible and have-been-done.


On a long break until my computer arrives.

Re: WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus!

Yeah, I bet that's frustrating :/

Do you recall where you got this font from? Or did you make it up all on your own? I took the font from my Voyage 200 calculator, and our fonts only have a few minor differences. :P

I just played through Diamond now, too! I think you have a lot of talent and creativity! Are both of these only two towns? It'd be nice to have a full game of yours!

Am I the only one that thought this was a bot generated spammed thread? One look at the title and I figured that was the case.

Possibly.

I didn't because this hack is pretty old and I've heard of it before. I'm sure others have too. But even other others probably haven't and that might quite possibly be one of the first conclusions they'd come to.


You can try to hide yourself in this world of pretend; when the paper's crumpled up, it can't be perfect again.

Re: WTF? World Famous Talking Cactus!

I knew it wasn't a spammed thread because:
1) I knew Meanmrmustard
2) I had the hack lying around already

But with a name like that, I can see why it might look that way to someone who hadn't been around back then.
