"So far, we are unable to determine the cause of this massive outbreak of this invasive species, and researchers are working around the clock to identify these humanoid creatures with characteristics unlike anything we have come across before. Until a conclusive answer can be achieved, we will refer to these creatures as..."

Lots of stuff has happened in the years after Red had beaten the Kanto League and disbanded Team Rocket. Many youths from all over had followed in his footsteps (Even if they didn't quite know it.), such as Gold in Johto. Ruby and Sapphire in Hoenn, Lucas and Dawn in Sinnoh - they all saved their respective regions from takeover by factions that sought to destroy it. Natural disasters have stricken and been recovered from, such as the Cinnabar Volcano eruption, and the mudslide of Route 23. Things have tested the resolve of humans and Pokemon alike in these past 8 years. But none of these events were anything compared to what was happening now - an invasion.

Two years before present day, Professor Oak, head professor of the Kanto region, led an expedition to the Cave of Origin located in Sootopolis City, Hoenn. It was there that the first of the invaders were spotted. Upon first glance, they were mistaken as normal Pokemon, but various tests proved otherwise. Eventually, these invaders started spreading all over.

Eventually, Pokemon were driven out of their habitats by these species, now called Puppets, and their fighting. Pokemon have gone into hiding since then, some even taking refuge in an island preservation south of the Kanto region. Very few trainers have Pokemon left with them, and those that do seldom fight with them.

Within a year, Pokemon became the minority to the Puppets.

Two years have passed since the invasion of the Puppets, and humans have adapted to the new ways of life. Trainers capture and train Puppets, and enter them into the various Regional Leagues around the planet.

You play as either Maribel Hearn or Renko Usami, two females who are on a search across Monsekai, the Pokemon World, to discover why the Puppets have invaded, the rumors behind this mysterious alternate dimension, and how the both of them are connected. However, the questing won't be easy, as corrupt factions from a decade ago -- Team Rocket, Team Magma, Team Aqua, are all beginning to make their return, and embrace this new opportunity with the Puppets, and restart their plans for world domination. Your quest to find the Land of Illusions will be interrupted by Team Rocket, who seek to do the same. And as you do that, Team Magma and Team Aqua rise up from the depths of the earth and ocean, and begin to hatch a scheme to take all of Monsekai for themselves this time around. Will they be successful, or will they fall to the might of your team of Puppets?

Say hello to the future of music in Faith & Prayer Version!

If you’ve played Touhoumon Faith & Prayer Version, you’re probably more than well aware of the glaring issues with music and sound files - specifically, how they just don’t loop properly! Or you haven’t noticed because you play with sound off, in which case, that’s cool too! But if you have noticed, well have I got some good news for you. As of August 7th, 2015, Touhoumon Faith & Prayer Version now has the ability to properly loop specific audio files!

You see, RPG Maker XP is a rather old program, and while it does support looping audio files, it only supported it for very few types (.wav, .mp3, .midi). It also didn’t have native .ogg support until someone managed to make a script which allowed it. Faith & Prayer Version uses .ogg files primarily because of how small the file sizes are in comparison to .wav and .mp3, but unfortunately this meant that audio files couldn’t be looped - at all. It wasn’t until very recently that the sands have shifted.

Several months ago, a person by the name of Nuru Yuri on the Pokecommunity Forums developed and released a script which refurbishes the old fmod script plugin, which was 100% incompatible with Pokemon Essentials, to make it work with Pokemon Essentials and all fangames built in it. This script makes it so you have much more control over your audio files, but for the purposes of right now, it also made it so you can loop .ogg files.

Initially I was going to include his in Demo 6, but I couldn’t get it working before release. That’s what one of the leftover bugs was on Demo 6 initial release, an attempt at getting this to work. I decided to scrap it and try and make it a Demo 7 feature, giving myself much more time to work on it and get the audio files fixed up.

Now, the audio file you hear here is Dichromatic Lotus Butterfly ~ Ancients off of the Touhou Puppet Dance Performance OST. Specifically, this is the in-game version, as it was already in .ogg format. Being part of the translation team also allowed me to find that out, as well as the loop points required to make it loop properly in a game. The track itself is 4 minutes and 40 seconds long, so you can observe the looping in action at around that point in the video. The video also continues for another 4 minutes or so, to show off the song going double its length if you don’t believe it (The reason why I was battling so poorly was to show off the loop’s first cycle). I would like to state though, this track will not be in Faith & Prayer proper, it was just a filler track to test the looping function.

With this script applied to the game, be sure to expect more looped music files, from map overworld themes to battle music, to miscellaneous other tracks that may be included across the game. I’ll also try and touch up on the tracks audio quality since I have to manually go over every single audio file, potentially re-recording them all. Demo 7 might bring about a massive audio update. Stay tuned for more news. Derxwna, out!
