    Sorry about the lack of updates guys. I've been bogged down with work and college lately.

    I will use any generation of pokemon. But they have an order of preference :P for example if there was a pokemon from gen 3 and gen 4 that could be used for the same badnik I would choose the gen 3 pokemon. Purely because I want the badniks to be memorable and generally the older ones are more memorable :P

    I would like to change as much as possible. But at the moment my technical knowledge really limits me. I would like help but I don't want someone to come in and change alot of things without me knowing what they have done or how to do it myself.

    30 Day Project: Revisited.A New Release!
    You know how I found the best way to learn?
    I looked for the object code, which acheived what I wanted, or similar.
    For example, if I wanted sonic to double jump, I'd look at how the Spring makes sonic move, and work up from there.
    It all helps. =P

    I thought the posted demo had layout edits...? Or am I thinking of something else?

    Sorry I'm late to this, been kinda busy =$

    Nice hack I see there, the character (Pikachu) is looking pretty good and fits well with what you've done, a little rough around the edges with the rolling animation but it's pretty decent. The layouts and object placement are nicely presented too, not too basic yet not too cram-packed, just right to be simply fun and nothing more.

    I see you have alot on your plate at the moment what with college and all, but I find this hack a unique yet fun hack and not one that looks completely like crap, so it's great so far. Looking forward to future releases =D

    I was thinking of some things to be added, but some have been touched upon already in some form:
    Use Pulseman's Volteccer sprite for the jumping/spinning animation, but just edit it a bit. Pikachu's rolling at the moment looks a bit unnatural.
    For the spindash charge, have Pikachu crouch and build up electricity around him/in his cheeks.
    Have the title screen music be either the English Pokemon opening or Mezase! Pokemon Master - Instrumental of course =P. I swear there was a Pokemon hack on the MegaDrive that used Mezase for a level theme, can't quite think of the name of the hack though.
    Have Pikachu say his name upon pressing start, like on yellow version ^^
    Have items in Pokeballs maybe? Failing that, the item boxes as seen in Pokemon Colloseum.
    Maybe make the extra life image a rare candy?
    I dunno, I have a lot of ideas for this, it's an awesome concept for a hack! ^^

    This is gonna sound really stupid, but how do I listen to that file type?

    I tried WinAmp as many people suggested and that didn't play it.

    Haha very cool and inventive hack. I'm quite impressed that your "first hack" includes a new charactor AND a custom title screen! Nice Job!

    You have a typo in the sub title for your thread BTW, and I like where your hack is going. ^^

    Missingno. as a boss, or even some random character/sighting, would be a fanservice delight. As you're trying to go for a real Pokemon-feel hack here, perhaps the latter idea. Nonetheless, It's looking so far so good.

    Also, what happened to the platforms when battling Robotnik?

    I love the new name, also hopefully you can fix the mappings for the Team Rocket baloon. SonicMapEd tends to do that sometimes if you port your art into the program, and then build your hack. It gets annoying sometimes. I cant wait to see the final result of this. ^^

    It's coming up like this because the art is too big for ram. I even went through the PLE's with Markey but that didnt work :'(

    Btw, why is Pikachu in the air without using a jumping anim? =P
