Pokemon Grape

<<Welcome in the Region of Frejo!>>

Hack Name: Pokemon Grape
Hack of: Pokemon Red
Introduction: Hi, I'm 80C, this is my first Pokemon Red hack.
This is gonna be a total overhaul hack, not only map changes.

exj.png

This hack takes place in a far region called Frejo, in the far west of the world of Pokemon, one year after the facts happened in Pokemon Red.

For 1000 years the region of Frejo owned the property of the Western Pokemon League, one of the most powerful authority in the world, but this territory was stolen from another region, Kelgo.

After 1000 years in 1999 exploded a dispute between the 2 regions for the owning of the Pokemon League and, in order to avoid the war, the 2 Region Leaders decided to start a competition, in which each region chooses an unexperienced trainer and make them fight in Frejo against the official Gymleaders, so one of them could became the new League champion and rule over the 2 Regions for other 1000 years.

The region of Frejo chooses the descendant of the guy who won 1000 years before the League, Grape, the protagonist, the region of Kelgo chooses surprisingly another frejolese trainer called Paul, but he's the son of the local criminal boss that wants take over the region affairs since his affairs in Kanto were wiped out the year before by Ash.

In agreement with Kelgo the last members of Team Rocket who ran away from Kanto started an urban warfare, and the day before the official day of the starting of the competition they broke into the League and destroyed all the Pokemon Data from the mainframe, and the region fell in a deep crisis.

The league decided to add another task to the two challengers' mission: collect every pokemon in the world in order to restore the datas, so the League Leader Snake gave to the two challengers a tutor that comes from the neutral region of Altek, Prof. I.S. Bek, cousin of Prof. Oak and one of the best expert of Pokemon in the World.

Who wins the League becomes the Champion, and who complete the Pokédex saves the World.

This will be an unexpected adventure.

Re: Pokemon Grape

I forgot to say, but this is realy cool!

You could also add Custom Music, made in FamiTracker, to your hack. Just search ''rbyImport'', which is a program from Sonic65. And read my thread, ''Pokémon Red & Blue - Music Hacking'', to find out how to make good Custom Music, and how to use ''Sonic65's rbyImport (for .FTM's)''.
If you want, I could give you some music. But you have to credit me for the music. (In the Intro Screens, or something).


The ones who still ask what they know, just go walk long on a short pier!

Re: Pokemon Grape

If you want to do music, I suggest maybe taking a look at my Midi to GSC converter. It can do RBY if the pkms.asm is modified a little.

Re: Pokemon Grape

About Grape... today I got all the asm documents & tutorials I found on the web, from basics to advanced.

Now I have too less time to dedicate learn asm cuz it's not easy...
After my final exams in June I'll dedicate to this hack & in September I'll release a demo patch with 2 or 3 gyms (but this demo doesn't represent the final product since I'm planning add heavy changes to Red).

Re: Pokemon Grape

------------------------- Good Side: :

+ Grape:
He's a 14\15 Years old trainer, he moved with his family in Frejo in their new hometown Paceleaf City;
Grape's father works in Altek, while his mother is always at home with his son.
Grape is a baseball player, so he always dresses baseball outfit, and he's more interested in Baseball and in his team, the Superstars Paceleaf, rather than in Pokemon.
One day he becames the new capitan because the old one got disqualificated, the old one is a 14 years old guy named Paul, the son of the local Criminal Boss Steelhen.
One month after he was selected by the League as the Frejo Challenger, and he got famous too.

Grape had also 2 brothers: One is the eldest, Gustav, and left the family and became a trainer, his aim was the league, but his steps were lost many years before; the other one was called Bryan and many rumour suggested he died in a swamp after many criminals of Steelhen charged him...

There's something obscure in Grape's childhood that motivated him stay away from Pokemon... but this time Pokemon will be undispensable, Grape will have to work hard and became a trainer.

Grape's Mom:
She will always help Grape and restore his Pokemon, she was in fact a Pokemon Nurse in Altek years before.

Prof. Iroquois Stanley Bek:
He's the Prof, he's the cousin of Prof. Oak (he's the son of Oak's Mother's Brother) and one of the greatest experts in Pokemon as well as Oak.
They got many adventures & collaborations previously.
Bek has great respect on responsable Trainers and dislikes Trainer that did that choose only for being rich, so he dislikes Steelhen and his son, but Bek is loyal so he gives a pokemon to him too and tries stay as neutral as possible due to being the official refree of the competition.

------------------------- Evil Side: :

Paul:
He's the Bully of Paceleaf City.
He's jealous of Grape due to his DQ from the Baseball Team, so he asks help to his father Steelhen that will provide as much reinforcements as he can but without being caught up interfering in the Competition.
Paul enjoys to push other kids with his baseball bat rather than Pokemon, that's why he got disqualified.
Now, he's determinate to take his revenge on Grape, and he'll even commit robs & crimes to reach his target.

Steelhen:
He was the right arm of Giovanni of Team Rocket.
He was sendt in Jotho, but during Ash's liberation of Silph Tower he arrived too late for saving Giovanni, so he got exhiled with some members of Team Rocket.
During a foggy night in the Frejo Alps, he and his men were starving and freezing, while a weird guy named Kifflom arrived and saved them, but only if they got submitted on his commands.
Steelhen accepted and Kifflom permitted him have again his fame and money, but secretly he was under Kifflom's rules, even Paul doesn't know it.

The Disciples:
Some of Team Rocket Members, exept the eldest grunts, became disciples devote on the "cult" of their Master Kifflom and started searching new members indipendent from Steelhen and devote exclusively to Kifflom.
Those guys are called "The Disciples", and will offer to Grape to join their group called "The Epsilon Program".
This is an important and unexpected part of the story.

Kifflom:
Not much is known about this Blue\Turquoise Guy.
Some rumours refer that he and his Brother Kraff created Pokeballs (or even Pokemon!), Kraff started enslaving pokemon, Kifflom didn't wanted it but he lost and got on exile on the Alps.
1000 years after he encountered Steelhen's Team Rocket Grunts and you know what happened.

Kifflom wants revenge and beat Kraff's disciples' descendant, the Elite 4 League of Trainers.
The irruption of Team Rocket in the Elite's Mainframe (aka Hall of Fame) started all this mess.

------------------
and of course there are lots of other charachters, the rest awaits in the game!

Cool.
I strongly recommend you to make your own music for it, in FamiTracker. Just search "rbyImport", here or on Google.

You can also convert FamiTracker Modules [FTM-files] to R/B/Y Music Format.

I never edited music & I never converted from midi to gb format, the music hack will come at last when everything is already done, but, yes, I've planned to change 3 soundtracks, adjust the unused music & add 4 new soundtracks including the printer error soundtrack.
I already got rbyImport, but I haven't used it yet, later I'll watch that tool & its tutorials.


Fortuneman wrote:

I haven't done its own market yet, but I've read in a tutorial that add new marts isn't so difficult, plus there's one of these that is unused in the game (that was the Mart for the Unused City, I guess), maybe I'll use that one.
You gave me an idea: maybe that Mart will have a secret access...
Plus, check out the Quartz's PokeCenter... it will be interesting.
Da answer 4 this mystery will be solved in a further beta...


But I've encountered a bug inside that town: you can't use the bike\kart, the text-box says: cycling not allowed here.
I should know how 2 fix it.

80C wrote:

(...) use the bike\kart (...)

yes.
you've read correctly.

proof:
kart2
kart1

Enjoy the Kart and the new town.

If you are going to use Sonic65's "rbyImport", (I don't want to be arrogant, but) I recommend you to go read my tutorial for using the program properly: https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthrea … e=YORAMRW/. Do not insert the music in the original file of your ROM Hack, but make a copy of your ROM Hack. Because the music insertion can corrupt the ROM, if the new music is larger than the original.

If you use "rbyImport", you should go replace all the songs which are possible. Then, you made a really amazing hack.

Re: Pokemon Grape

I thought someone could insert a sound sequence without replacing a previous soundtrack (I know, I know, this isn't the correct term that should be used) just like Nintendo did with Pokemon Yellow, so I must replace the previous ones?

I admit I'm a complete rookie about sound editing (I never did it), but I'll read that Tutorial when the bigger affairs will be completed (and I'm not referring only to the hack) as well as the remainin tutorials about asm hacking.
Now, these hacking-jobs aren't so important right now (I'm not saying this isn't important! I'm saying actually there are things more important than dat, u know).

PS: Yes, I've got rby import

Re: Pokemon Grape

I know how to insert a song without replacing an existing: Go find an empty space with a hex editor, and type in the offset of the empty space in "rbyImport". That's how to get the song in the game, BUT I shouldn't know what kind of pointer you have to type, then. And God may know how you have make a new song load in a specific town. This is because I only have replaced songs already.

Yes, you're correct, your patch is absolutely great.
I credited you, just check Page 2 & You'll find my original post about the hack.

I need your opinion about the actual cave tiles.

I will give it you on Monday, because I can't do it now.
Are you skilled enough to add screens before the Copyright Screen (Because, if you can do that, you can credit me like the intro of Pokémon Wood). If you credit me in the GAME (, not on this website), you can call me YORAMRW, because that is my YouTube username, and that's much shorter (thus easier to put on a Game Boy screen).

Your new screenshots are very cool, too. You could also try to do more with the Super Game Boy Features. You could try to make the Super Game Boy play some songs in with SNES instruments. (Works only on a real snes.) It would also be cool if you try to make the Super Game Boy load 16-color palettes for some parts of the intro.
I don't know whether some of these things is doable for you. It would be really cool if you can do that, but your hack is already very cool.

Really, really cool! What should you change?: Nothing.

Added at 18:42:
What you should do with the dungeon, where my music plays, is: Call the dungeon "LAVENDER DUNGEON", place abandoned houses in it, in the arrangement of Lavender Town, but keep it a dungeon (dungeon palette, black border tiles), make three entrances: the main entrance where Route 12 in Pokémon Red/Blue begins, an entrance to another cavern where the west route in Pokémon Red/Blue begins, and an north entrance. If you make interiors of the houses, make it like the Team Rocket ruined house, so it looks like Lavender Town sheaf in a cleavage after an earthquake.
How nice is THIS idea?
PS: You also could place a sing outside of the south entrance: "LAVENDER DUNGEON. WARNING: High-pitched music!".

Re: Pokemon Grape

I'm learning asm, now I'm only learning very basic things, I'm busy with the school most of the times.
Yes, I planned to add these 2 extra screens before the nintendo\years screen + the intro as usual, I know Sawakita did it, IIMarkus said me that in Wood's source I've could understand how he did it.
But I've got to learn fully asm & then understand how to assign to these images their custom palette, maybe I haven't to create new ones cuz Danny E33 put enough palettes inside (thanks again bro) but only put the asm routine & then indicate the start offset of these images.

Here are the 2 screens (NOT final):

load1

load2

Yes Yoramrw, I'll credit you inside my hack + all the people helped me & Skeetendo Forums at the end credits, this is why I asked some time ago how to expand end credits (just like did KBM in brown).

@yoramrw
* yes, when some of the music I'm planning to insert will be inserted I'll credit in a screen, I should change the 1st one and insert more names*

Re: Pokemon Grape

Those two screens are really cool! How have you made them. Is it just pixelart, or is it really in your hack?
Anyway, I will share a text file with a design how it could be nice.

Here is the text file of the intro screen. You may feel free to copy the text, and use it for your intro screens. It is text, so there are no colors. You have to imagine the colors by yourself, like "POKéMON GRAPE" in green letters: "POKéMON GRAPE".

Re: Pokemon Grape

I will make your cover art in [Super] Game Boy resolution, so you can use it for your third intro screen. :)

Here is the source code of the cover art for the Super Game Boy/Game Boy Color. It's Z80, so I don't know whether it works.

And, this is the image of the cover art:
