Hey, we survived to Update 2!


PokeGen v.2 - Launcher

Hopefully we can make it to the end of the game before Nintendo finds us, but until then, here's what the following release's features will consist of:

The Launcher

  • A common thing that isn't that big of a deal but we wanted one anyway because they look cool.
  • With this, you'll be able to start the game up and be notified when new updates are available, however, once downloaded, the game's main .exe will also be available if you're not currently connected to the internet.
  • Because of the launcher's flexibility, expect smaller updates to be released far more frequently instead of large updates being released every four months. (Expected Time: 2 Weeks per update)

New Map: Oak's Corral

  • We find our heroes in Oak's Backyard, testing out the Pokemon he has available. Over the months, we'll slowly make our way into his lab, and eventually Pallet Town itself! For now, just have fun running around and finding that super secret ledge you can climb.

New Pokemon

  • We've gone ahead and added the remaining two starters (Squirtle & Bulbasaur), along with Rattata and Pidgey, totalling in six available Pokemon.
  • Each has their own unique move-set, apart from a few duplicates. They have type advantages, different play-styles, and may even make you rethink who you choose for your starter! Just kidding, long live Charmander.

Catching & HUD

  • You can now catch Pokemon by clicking on the little Pokeball icon in the new HUD.
  • You can catch as many as you want, but like the games, you may only carry six at a time.
  • There's also a Healing Machine available so that you can heal your Pokemon whenever you wish.

Main Menu & Saving

  • The main menu now supports longer IP strings for connecting to site-hosts, as well as port editing.
  • All teams, stats, menu settings, and GUI scale is now all saved conveniently in a data folder. No trying to decrypt the stats though, or we'll resurrect Sauron and place the Ring of Power in your living room.
  • Spectator mode has been given all new controls and features, and the chat for multiplayer has also been cleaned up.

Multiplayer

  • With the combined efforts of the team, many bugs have been eradicated and we've done our best to make the multiplayer experience as enjoyable as possible. That said, there will always be bugs here and there, so if you find anything that hasn't already been posted in the Bug Testing forum, drop a thread/post there and let us know.

That's it for now! We'll be working to get some more Pokemon added before we dive into the more complicated things, but enjoy Update 2 for now! Great things are coming.

P.S.: For a full guide on using the launcher, visit the tutorials section.

I don't think so. Nintendo has published more than 200 hundreds game or more, and Shigure Yamato will make tons of Nintendo game, so it is not likely for them to bankrupt just like Akira-what!? What, you hadn't heard of that? On the other side Xbox 720 is coming-Yay!

Nothing really. Nintendo can order a cease and desist, but it wouldn't do much since this team is currently protected under the "Parody Act" which allows them to use Pokemon in any way shape or form, for fan based material, provided they don't profit from it, like giving it a price. Donations are ok, since they don't directly correlate with the download ability and usage of the game. It's a way for artists to create material of popular media without being afraid of the consequences, and can even provide the main holder (Nintendo in this case) free publicity through advertisement of a franchise through a game they didn't have to pay for. So if the team runs off donations and plays it smart by making everything about it free, then they have nothing to fear and are in the legal right :3

This game is awesome!
The only things I have in mind off the top of my head are these.
- You should make the character have to walk over the Pokeball, once the Pokemon has been caught to actually receive it, or have the ball fly back to the character.
- Fix the capture system. If I had to pay for each ball, I'd end up running out of money at how bad the accuracy is for the system. Maybe let the circular ring lock onto the Pokemon?
- Fix the jumping. I can jump through parts of map to get to higher grounds.
- For the PC box, you should give the player like a wrist device which you can access your PC box on mobile, so you don't have to travel so far to use it.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, XATOKU!

Really great job in this update ! I love playing Pidget and I love his animation when he stands or when he walks/jumps ! I noticed a little bug when clouds are moving (because I always like looking to the sky and around of this beautiful environment you made), other than that all is great.

Thanks again ! And as you can see, we are a lot to support you and appreciate your game. So if you have problems (even with Nintendo), we are here !

Português:Pois é, eu estou com dificuldade também. Eu tentei baixar e não consigo pois fala que não está disponível no momento, até que por um momento o download foi executado, e quando terminou e eu extrai o Laucher não funcionou corretamente e não pude jogar. Espero que seja manutenção deles, pois estava esperando muito por esta atualização!

English: Yeah, I'm having trouble too. I tried to download and I can not speak for that is not available at the moment, for a moment until the download was, and when I finished and extracts the Laucher did not work properly and could not play. I hope it is maintaining them, because I was waiting so much for this update!
